    Helping My Ex Realize He’s Gay with Jordan Paul

    Helping My Ex Realize He’s Gay with Jordan Paul

    On this episode, I'm joined by my ex Jordan who I dated for six months in the beginning of the pandemic until he ended things, seemingly out of the blue. After not speaking for two years, we recently reconnected when I saw his Instagram post announcing and celebrating that he came out. Jordan and I sit down to discuss his coming out journey, including years of experimenting, moving to a new city where he could fully explore his sexuality, and finally coming out to his friends and family after keeping it a secret for so long. We chat about our relationship and our breakup, how dating me helped him realize that he liked men, the differences in dating men and women on apps, and how it feels to finally be his most authentic self.

Love the podcast but I wish the sound was better

Maybe it’s just me but I always have to turn my volume almost all the way up to hear the interview but the ads are a normal volume. But I LOVE the content.
