The ladies from LJ Matchmaking, aka "The Love Agents of Hollywood", join me to talk about virtual matchmaking, their virtual blind date venture (it's a HIT with my clients), and the dos and don'ts of virtual dating and beyond. We go from how to get started to what to wear to how to enjoy it and what to definitely NOT do. We also get into their super fun personal love success stories, which are nothing short of inspiring (and hilarious) and will make you think twice about searching so hard for your "type". This one is SO CHOCK FULL of juicy tidbits. Listen up!

AND...what do with all this horniness in quarantine (yours and ours and theirs)!? Fan Favorite Billy Griffin Jr. is BACK to update us on an EPIC assignment I gave him when he was first on over a year ago. Hint: He wasn't allowed a boyfriend for a full year, wasn't allowed to even TRY for it and now...well, you'll have to tune in. Together we talk how to use communication to grow vulnerability and ultimately build a strong and healthy bond. We discuss our invention of creative pornography, when and how to give up drinking (and when and if to pick it up again), commitment, commitment-phobes, how to stay sane in quarantine and otherwise, tips for a budding relationship, and everything turning out just as it needs to be! Listen up!

Listener question for the week: how can I be more comfortable telling my new-ish partner what I'm into sexually? Let's talk about it, as well as how to make this virtual dating thing a bit more creative and interesting, AND how to go easy on yourself and your partner because everyone handles this differently. Also, it's Passover this week so free yourself from whatever is keeping YOU enslaved, and celebrate what you're already free from that perhaps you weren't before. Let's celebrate whatever we can right now, and keep moving forward! Send me your Qs and if you're in a couple and would like to come on the show and talk about either quarantining or not together and what is or isn't working for you, reach out! I'd love to hear from you! Now listen up!

Alex Jospin (health and wellness expert and my single out in the field, AND the brain behind this incredible episode title) joins me to talk about all things dating and COVID, as well as her personal recs for staying healthy and sane (ish). You can do nothing if you're feeling burnt out, you can have chat sex if you're feeling bold, you can do anything you want because we're all feeling everything! Be bold! Because for the foreseeable future you have nothing to lose but everything to gain by getting a little crazy and "meeting" someone new! Listen up!

First up: plenty of hot tips for our current situation and how to feel MORE connected and hopeful romantically - not less. And THEN. Goddess Angel Anderson is here to entrance, educate, and soothe us with her incredible story of marriage, infidelity, radical honesty, and polyamory. Angel currently has two boyfriends AND a comet. What's a comet, you ask? You must listen to find out! Angel is a downright SAGE and we can learn SO MUCH from her. Whether you think polyamory might be your thing or not (resources below), every word out of her mouth is liquid gold for living a happy fulfilling romantic and overall life. This woman is wise and hot AF and it SHOWS. I barely talk at all in this episode! That's how you KNOW it's good. So settle in, cuddle up, and listen up! And write us a review while you're at it! I know you got the time.

Staying in can be FUN, and GREAT for your dating life! I mean it; so do it. Whether you go on FaceTime dates (Love Is Blind-style without the blind!), rediscover your love of watercolor painting, or find out you LIKE someone you recently started dating beyond just the sexual, take this time for YOU and for both your relationships with other people and with yourself. MEANwhile I talked to Cameron the self-proclaimed introvert (who must be LIVING right now) about how to be more social, get out there, take risks, step out of his comfort zone, and STOP self-sabotaging through a shield of perfectionism. This will all be very useful when we can interact in person again, but it also applies NOW! Take a risk, put yourself out there, and get to know someone for real before meeting them for real. Listen up!

What do you do when everything is "perfect" in a relationship except a fewwww key things? And if you were all of a sudden told you were terminal, what would you do? Go have a sexual revolution? That's what my guest Nikki Boyer's best friend Molly did, and they were generous enough to make a podcast about it! Nikki and I talk about what it was like for her to vicariously go on this journey and what she learned about sex and dating and herself in the process. Nikki is also making it work as a stepmom of two girls and we get into ALL that, since if you're out there dating you might just become a step-parent yourself. This is a juicy one with candid talk about how to navigate love, marriage, illness, sex, and blended families. Whew! Settle in and listen up!

The New Gay

Comedian Audrey Stewart is lunging at women out in the world (consensually) and LOVING IT!!! Sometimes. Other times she's beating herself up and doubting herself and questioning dating as a whole, just as everyone does, straight, gay, queer, and all of it. Lesson is: the journey to becoming you isn't easy and neither is the journey to finding someone to love you for you, but it's worth it. And it WILL get easier if you stick with it and keep pushing against that cocoon til you're free. Listener Q: the date was amazing but then she asked for space. Do I give it? How much? And whyeeeee!?! Listen up!
