    Do You Need To Be Single To Work On Yourself?

    Do You Need To Be Single To Work On Yourself?

    J&J are back with another Sunday Special, and this week they start with a discussion about not drinking on dates. The emailer writes in about a breakup with a younger guy. Things were progressing well until a few months in when he revealed he was scared to get into a serious relationship and needed time alone to work on himself. Is this a legit excuse? Jared and Jordana break down what she should’ve done differently and why you should negotiate like Judge Judy.

    What Counts As Cheating?

    What Counts As Cheating?

    On this week’s episode, Jared and Jordana are joined by Maddy (AKA the person reading all your emails) to talk about what 25 year olds do on their birthdays, and Jared recaps his brother’s engagement. The first emailer asks if it takes longer to “click” with someone when you’re in your 30s. Is it actually harder to settle as you get older? The Awkward Sexual Encounter was a hookah bar hookup. Later, a listener asks if she’s a cheater after a steamy dance floor moment on vacation. Does she need to tell her boyfriend about it? J&J finish the episode with a round of Red Flag or Deal Breaker about mid-date haircuts and pizza syllabi.

    SOS: Blindsided By A Breakup

    On this week’s Sunday Special, J&J are joined by a real listener to break down her break up LIVE for our first U Up? SOS episode. Jess was blindsided by a breakup after a solid start to her new relationship, and then 2 days later, he tried to take the breakup back. Was the excuse he gave the real reason for the breakup? Jared explains the spiral he probably went through, and they advise her on what to do if he reaches out again.

    Is Ambition A Valid Reason For A Breakup?

    Is Ambition A Valid Reason For A Breakup?

    On this week’s episode, Jared and Jordana start with a discussion about how girls' trips evolve as you grow up and a TikTok poking fun at men who say they want someone who “doesn’t take life too seriously” on the dating apps. The first emailer asks if her boyfriend is a deadbeat or if she’s being too hard on him. Are lifestyle differences a deal breaker? The Awkward Sexual Encounter involves a repeat offense. Later, a listener asks if she has to justify her texting style to guys who interpret her slow responses as lack of interest. J&J finish the episode with a round of Faux Pas or Nah about expensive tabs, dog behavior, and fart etiquette.

Less Jared, More Jordana

We have Jtrain pod for all things Jared. Uup? Is for a Co-Ed approach. Chill it with the negative dating updates from Jared, we get it, we are also single. We come here to put our “brains on the shelf” talk to your therapist about your issues. Bring on the funny- some of us actually pay to avoid thinking about our dating woes. Enough already.

Jared, shut up

Okay we all know that Jared doesn’t read reviews but Jordana, you read them all! This show used to be so great but Jared is getting unbearable to listen to. Either he needs to have a breakthrough soon and realize that his bitterness is not helping him, or he needs to be replaced with a new host. I LOVE oversharing and honestly i feel like Jordana has become a better host over time while Jared has gotten worse.
