    Ever been Dogfished? How about Sturgeoned? If you're on dating apps, chances are you already have been and you didn't even realize it. Or maybe you knew something was fishy but you didn't know what to call it?! So this week it's sink or swim, as Jenny and Jill get you up to speed on the most common lures men use to reel you in on dating apps. For an extra challenge, we'll be using strictly nautical language. Ready?! 

    We're talkin':


    The baiting tactics and how to catch them before they "catch" you
    Who to throw back, so you don't waste time while searching for your 1st mate... well, 2nd mate? 3rd?
    The EXTREMELY PERTINENT modern dating lingo you'll need to know in order to right your course. 

    We hope it'll be easier to navigate the turbulent post-divorce seas knowing what dangers lurk in the deep. Anchor up!
