Where to Start
Is This A Red Flag Or Am I The As*hole?
J&J are back with a Sunday Special, and they start out with a chat about the summer dating season. Next they listen to two new listener jingles which leads to a conversation on how “Les Miserables” is a f*ckboy story. Later they introduce a new segment called The People’s Courtship where Judge J&J will decide who is wrong in a dating situation. This week a listener called the hotline to ask if it was weird for a guy to bring her “grocery store flowers” on a first date. Plus, they talk about how judgmental is too judgmental when it comes to dating.
When Does A White Lie Become A Regular Lie? Ft. Rebel Wilson
On this week’s episode, Jared and Jordana start out with a conversation about how to keep dating momentum going while you're traveling for work. The first emailer asks about the difference between taking things slow and getting strung along. The Awkward Sexual Encounter involves a condom balloon. Another emailer asks how much white lies matter after her boyfriend lied to her about going to a strip club. Later, Jared and Jordana are joined by U Up? With Benefits subscriber Rebel Wilson to talk about her dating life and her new movie “Senior Year.” They finish the episode with a round of Red Flag or Deal Breaker about wedding etiquette and recycled playlists.
How To Take The Hint After Shooting Your Shot
On this week’s Sunday Special, Jared and Jordana are breaking down the texts between a listener and her almost contractor to decide whether or not he’s interested in her. Should she shoot her shot one more time or is a "k" text the kiss of death? Later, J&J introduce a new segment called Rate My Date where they review creative date ideas submitted by listeners. This week’s submission is a triple date straight out of a fever dream.
I’ve been listening to J&J for a while and I love not only their relationship advice, but also their humor and chemistry with each other. I often find myself laughing out loud with them and enjoy their banter together and with guests.
J and J—thank you for the words of wisdom. Please keep the advice coming! Your dynamic together is amazing!
If you are dating in your 20s and 30s, you have to listen to this podcast. I’ve learned so much about the male species from Jared! It is super helpful!!
