How To Confront Your S.O. About Sketchy Texts
Jared and Jordana are back with another Sunday Special, and this week they’re helping a listener who saw something suspicious on her boyfriend’s phone. Should she be concerned by this message?

How To Know If You’re A Rebound
On this week’s episode, Jared and Jordana start out with an update on Jordana’s orthodontic journey and an exciting announcement. The first email asks how to know if you’re someone’s rebound. If they constantly bring up their ex, does it mean they’re not over them? The Awkward Sexual Encounter involves an unusual request. Later, a listener asks if a guy she’s seeing is doing too much too soon. Is he weird or is she just not into him? J&J finish the episode with a round of Red Flag or Deal Breaker about vaccination cards and Instagram pictures.

Jordana Explains Why She Doesn’t Believe In “The One”
On this week’s U Up? With Benefits bonus episode, Jared and Jordana discuss the concept of “the one.” Why is “how did you know he was the one?” such a common question?

Plus, Jared helps her workshop a more appealing answer for when people ask how she knew her fiancé was the one.
Are Different Political Views A Deal Breaker?
Jared and Jordana are back with another Sunday Special, and this week’s episode is all about navigating political and cultural differences in dating. They start out with a conversation about how heightened political differences have manifested on dating apps. Then they answer an email from a listener about a guy she’s been seeing who has different opinions on heavy topics like guns. Do their differences mean they’re doomed? Plus they discuss how you should broach conversations about these topics.
Can I Be Confident And Insecure At The Same Time? Ft. Violet Benson
On this week’s episode, Jared and Jordana start out by recapping Jordana’s birthday celebration. An emailer writes in asking how to flirt IRL. How should she express interest outside of texting and social media? The Awkward Sexual Encounter involves a very hot car. Later, they answer an email from a listener asking how to be vulnerable with her partner about her insecurities. Finally, J&J are joined by Violet Benson, host of Too Tired To Be Crazy, to discuss her dating life and play a round of Red Flag or Deal Breaker about roommates and squatty potties.
What Does A F*ckboy Get Out Of Being Friends?
Jared and Jordana are back with another F*ckboy or Nah? on this week’s Sunday Special. An emailer describes her situationship with a guy she met last October. At first he says he didn’t want a relationship and she was fine with that, but they continued to hang out and hook up. Eventually they have a DTR talk and he says he can see them dating in the future, but he needs to figure his own life out. Is he a f*ckboy for giving her hope for the future? Or should she have taken him at his original word? Plus they discuss how to know what being in love feels like.
I want to listen but I can’t seem to get anything to load after I ended my subscription… I just want to go back to the regular episodes but Apple podcasts won’t let me! I’ve seen other reviews saying the same thing, #sendhelp
I can’t seem to get any of the podcast to load ever since becoming a subscriber and ending my subscription is there anyway I can go back to listening to the regular weekly episodes!?
Love the show, probably my favorite podcast. I feel attacked though because I have a medical condition that makes me unable to get vaccinated. Alluding that if you are irresponsible and don’t care about others health because they aren't vaccinated is a blanket statement is disgusting.
