Gen X-ers Jill Smokler (Founder of Scary Mommy) and Jenny Isenman (National lifestyle expert) face the stark realities of adulthood – being 40+ and single, raising older kids, tackling career changes, managing evolving relationships and figuring out what the hell we're doing and what we want to do with the rest of our lives... all while attempting to stay (moderately) sane. Possible? We shall see.

Wish us luck, and join us weekly – if for no other reason than to feel better about yourself.

    The Dating Disaster that was 2020, 70's Beard vs. 70's Bush... and MORE

    2020 sure was an interesting year to launch a podcast about dating after 40! Since neither one of us has actually gone on a single date this whole year, our final podcast of 2020 devolves into topics such as fair trends (both facial and pubic) and the possibility of once again dating in 2021. 
    Thanks for listening and see you next year!

    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!
