Best Dating Podcast

Just started listening to this podcast a few weeks ago and I’m obsessed. Each episode is so laidback, fun and so informative. Also all the topics are so relatable from navigating dating someone new to a long-term relationship, I can’t rave enough about this podcast.

A different perspective

The last episode with Mona was extremely informative. I had to go back and listen to this podcast and take notes. I really love all of the different perspectives that you guys give to the listeners. Thank you!

Something is off with editing

There’s people who talk over each other and then there’s awkward pauses. It makes it unpleasant to hear and hard to follow. There’s good topics but the editing needs work.
