Where to Start
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. Learn more about your ad choices. Visit megaphone.fm/adchoices
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
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.

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!!
