losperez10013 via Apple Podcasts · United States of America · 10/27/20
If you’re looking for applicable, useful dating advice this isn’t the show for you. Most of the advice almost seems like a joke. If you’re looking for fun pop culture dating news and interesting guests here and there, maybe you’ll enjoy it. It’s an entertaining listen, but realistically I...Read full review »

I enjoy this podcast. It’s lively and entertaining. It has some good advice from time to time. However, I stopped listening because I am overweight and I was incredibly insulted by one of the podcasts where they dealt with overweight women. Also, since I tend to be more politically conservative,...Read full review »
