DTR is a show about everything from opening lines, to profile pics, to dating someone out of your league. Each episode dives deep into the weird, wonderful and hilarious aspects of dating in an Internet-obsessed world. Because even though technology has made it easier to find dates, love is still as unpredictable as ever. For Season 2 of DTR, host Jane Marie (This American Life, Jezebel, The Hairpin, Cosmopolitan) is back and she’s on a mission. Joined by celebrity guests (Jason Mantzoukas, Aparna Nancherla, Patti Harrison, and more), they are taking over DTR listeners’ Tinder profiles, swiping for them, and sending them out on dates -- and recording all of it.

Episode 2.
Jason is wired differently, self regulation-wise. That won’t change. You can best help people like him by finding those with an understanding of what that means and who value his pro’s and or okay with the rest. There are people who see and value the great and more unique strengths offered by a person like Jason.
We can’t all fit the square peg hole presented by the “best” (statistically speaking) dating methods. Challenge yourself and help Jason out. He’s someone’s catch, motorcycle president and all.
