    Would You Want To Be On A Singles List?

    Would You Want To Be On A Singles List?

    On this week’s episode, Jared is back from his French adventure and ready to give Jordana the full recap of the trip and responses to his social media coverage. The first emailer asks J&J’s opinions on a “Singles List” she encountered at a recent wedding. Is it a fun way to meet people or is it a little presumptuous of the bride and groom? The listener forgets her underwear in the Awkward Sexual Encounter. The next email asks how to deal with snoring in a relationship. Are the listener and her boyfriend doomed to sleep in separate bedrooms? Would that even be so bad? They finish the episode with a round of Red Flag or Deal Breaker about scary movies, duvet covers, and handshakes.

    How To Get Set Up By Jordana

    How To Get Set Up By Jordana

    On this week’s bonus episode for our Friends with Benefits, Jordana starts with an update on how she’s feeling about the event she shared on her last bonus episode and what she’s doing to distract herself: setting people up. Jared asks her what makes her want to set someone up and how she strategizes her matches. More importantly, they talk about the type of person Jordana does *not* want to set up. Then, they break down why some people feel weird about asking to be set up and her #1 set up pet peeve. Plus, Jordana shares how she felt about her initial set up with her husband.

    Do You Actually Want To Know Why They Ended It?

    Do You Actually Want To Know Why They Ended It?

    J&J are back with another Sunday Special, and this week, they’ve got the screenshots from a listener who’s confused by the lack of communication from a guy she’s dating. He told their mutual friends that he’s into it, so why won’t he initiate any texts even after she brought it up? Is she confused about whether or not he likes her or does she just not like him? J&J translate the texts to what the emailer and this guy would say if they were both being completely honest. Plus, they talk about how there’s two sides to every date and why “I don’t know why” is the most annoying excuse.

    Am I Trusting My Gut Or Being Judgemental? Ft. Zoey Deutch

    Am I Trusting My Gut Or Being Judgemental? Ft. Zoey Deutch

    On this week’s episode, Jared and Jordana start with a discussion about how every family has a “lazy one” and why they need a travel agent. The first emailer asks how to trust your gut on whether or not you like someone. She lists several reasons she doesn’t think they’re a match, but is she being too judgmental? The Awkward Sexual Encounter involves an unusual accessory. Later, a listener asks if she should be concerned that her boyfriend never had a “hoe phase.” Do men even think about dating phases like that or is he trying to warm her up for a breakup? J&J advise her on how to address it with him which leads to a conversation about “relationship talk” and emotional maturity. Finally, Jordana is joined by Zoey Deutch to chat about her new movie “Not Okay” and play around of Red Flag or Deal Breaker about lying on your profile, seeing ghosts, and ordering off the kids’ menu.

    Stop Worrying About The Friend Group

    Stop Worrying About The Friend Group

    J&J are fresh off the flight from the U Up? Live show in Chicago and ready to solve dating with another Sunday Special. The listener writes in about a situationship with (debatably) 22 years of history. She explains that they didn’t want to date long distance, but now that they’re finally going to be living in the same city, she’s not sure what to expect. Should she be worried that things will move too quickly since they’ve known each other for so long? Plus, J&J talk about how they might not know each other as well as they think.

    What’s The Right Texting Ratio?

    What’s The Right Texting Ratio?

    Jared and Jordana start this week’s episode with a French lesson for Jared and a discussion about “going out woman” vs. “going home woman.” The first emailer asks how often she should be initiating text conversations with guys she’s dating. Is 60% of the time too much or is she just overthinking all of this? The Awkward Sexual Encounter is almost sacrilegious. Later, a hotline caller asks how to non-awkwardly break out the lube during sex with a new partner. Do guys care about this? They finish the episode with a round of Red Flag or Deal Breaker about condom disposal, posing nude, and profile photo faux pas.

My go to pod

Jordana, Jared (and Maddy!) are amazing! They talk about real life dating situations, break things down, and offer the perspective of from both a man and a woman. It’s so helpful and all done with laughter. Since Jordana reads all of these, please know you’re my favorite people to spend pod time with. Keep doing everything exactly as you do!

OBSESSED!!!

I LOVE UUP and J&J. Every episode is amazing and a perfect mix of helpful and hilarious. I feel like I know Jared and Jordana and I thank them for being so genuine and honest!! Not sure how I ever lived without this podcast, the new episodes are a highlight of every week. And the benefits episodes are totally worth it!! Also, I (and I’m sure others) REALLY appreciate how you guys interact with your fans. J&J often say to DM feedback or questions and they always respond and chat with fans who reach out.

One comment for your next live shows/tour- it would be awesome if somehow fans had an opportunity to meet you guys. I totally get what Jared says about it becoming a “second performance” but maybe there’s a way to do this!

Thank you for everything!!!

I could listen endlessly

This show is funny and genius. I wish I could be Jared and Jordanna’s best friend irl, because they are just so funny and relatable. I never miss an episode. The only good part about Monday’s for me.
