Especially now with social distancing, isolation and quarantine becoming a way of life, as a result of the coronavirus, people are really having to deal with feelings of loneliness.

    Do Old Dating Traditions Hold Up? (with Vinny Fasline)

    We always talk about the “good ol’ days” of dating, but was it really that great? Comedian Vinny Fasline is back with Natasha Chandel to have a funny ass discussion about which dating traditions hold up in 2020, and which we should chuck out the window.

False feminism

The "who should pay?" Episode puts a lot of ignorance on display. The whole episode is about how to get guys to pay for everything, not a complicated premise. The hosts have a delusional and self righteous version of feminism, everything they talk about objectifies women, one example I will reference is that men should pay because women get dressed up and get plastic surgery to look good for a date? Somehow according to them, getting a guy to pay for you is empowering? Sounds like prostitution, what happened to dating for content of character? I'm sure there is a target audience for this aka sugar babies and the instafamous. Don't water your time, plus the host host has the personality of an insecure paper box with daddy issues.

Hi Natasha! I gave you five stars :). You have helped me so much!!! I can relate immensely to what you talk about in your podcast.

Keeps getting better

The latest episode about working on yourself is AMAZING.
If you’re like me, you’re going to listen & think “YES, that is me!” over and over again... They even talk about triggers and dealing with it in a positive way while not allowing it to put you back into an old negative behavior loop instead of stuffing it down or pretending it’s not a thing till you blow up on someone who doesn’t even know what your problem is.... *cough* lol

Definitely binge this podcast.
