Do you know about Love Languages? The five ways to express and experience love that Gary Chapman proposed in his book "The Five Love Languages": receiving gifts, quality time, words of affirmation, acts of service (devotion), and physical touch? It's a topic that we find interesting, so we set out to tackle it.
In this episode, Polyam Gal Seeks (@Polygalseeks on Twitter) talk all about love languages. We share the results from our own quick Love Language test, our experiences dating people with varying primary love languages, what to do when your partner has a love language that they place a lot of emphasis on that may not resonate with you, and finally, we propose some new love languages for the modern dating world. PLUS, our favorite things we love, hate, or both.
People say that you shouldn't bring the baggage from your previous romantic experiences into a new relationship, but is that possible? Can people ever really get over the baggage they might have and move on, or are we all doomed to keep making the same mistakes? Do we all have baggage? In this episode, Polyam Gal Seeks (@Polygalseeks on Twitter) and I wanted to talk about Baggage.
We have a frank conversation about baggage from a ton of different angles. If you've ever wondered what it's like to date someone with baggage they refuse to address, or whether or not we think everyone has baggage, you'll find answer to these questions (and some questions you probably weren't even thinking of asking) in this episode. Plus, our favorite things (from about a month ago).
How do you keep a relationship from fizzling? Why does the spark start to fizzle in relationships, and what can you do to stop it? If you've ever asked any of these questions, I think we have an answer for you.
In this episode, Polyam Gal Seeks (@Polygalseeks on Twitter) and I wanted to tackle these questions. We share what it's like when you're in a relationship that seems to be fizzling, what you can and should do, what you absolutely should never do if you hope to revive the spark in your relationship.
We get into what we loved and hated this week, good and bad celebrity sightings, the importance of being intentional with time spent with your partner, and why it's never a good idea to email your grievances to your partner.
Sex and dating often go hand in hand, so what would a podcast about love be without an episode on Sex.
In this episode, Polyam Gal Seeks (@Polygalseeks on Twitter) and I wanted to talk about Sex. The rules we create around sex, whether it's possible to get past bad sex, how to show someone you're interested in sex, and a whole bunch more.
We get into what we loved and hated this week, our thoughts on Pride Month, Steve Harvey's mustache, and how mediocre sex can be like cold pizza.
We know a thing or two about what makes for a good dating profile, you should let us tell you how to make yours better!
In this episode, Polyam Gal Seeks (@Polygalseeks on Twitter) and I give some tips on how to make your dating profile better, more appealing to the people you want to attract, and more importantly, how to date use dating sites in a way that works for you. As always we spotlight some things we love, some things we hate, and give you advice we think will work for you.
If you're a fan of the podcast, you know that we're big pop culture heads and obviously love and relationships, and this episode is a great blend of those two themes.
Do you ever go back and re-experience something you experienced when you were younger, whether it's a song, movie, or other form of pop-culture, and realize just how poorly it's aged. You know what seems to age even more poorly? Depictions of love, dating, and relationships in Pop Culture. Of course, there are some examples that stand the test of time, so we wanted to show those pieces of pop culture a bit of love too.
In this episode, Polyam Gal Seeks (@Polygalseeks on Twitter) and I talk about some depictions of love in pop culture that we love and like a little less. Sorry in advance if we ruin your childhood. As always we spotlight some things we love, some things we hate, and give you that sweet, sweet banter you’ve been waiting for. Plus, a special shout out to Mary Lane of New York Cliche.
The second episode of the relaunch may ruffle some feathers, but that's okay. We wanted to tackle preferences in dating, specifically racial preferences in dating, with as much nuance and as possible. It's worth a listen, if for no other reason than to have your beliefs challenged a bit.
Polyam Gal Seeks (@Polygalseeks on Twitter) and talk about what your racial preferences in dating say about you, society as a whole, how people use race as shorthand for culture, and so much more. We spotlight some things we love, some things we hate, and give you that sweet, sweet banter you've been waiting for.
Welcome to the first episode of the relaunched podcast. I think you'll like it. If you didn't hear, I've got a new cohost. She's Polyam Gal Seeks (@Polygalseeks on Twitter). She's an awesome cohost who bring a different perspective on life and love. If you aren't already, and catch up on previous episodes we've recorded together (Ep.114, Ep.126, and Ep.127).
In this episode we wanted to discuss the role that self-imposed dating rules can play on your dating life. Are they helping you, are they hurting you, are they worth holding onto? We tackle that, and more, in this episode, plus a whole bunch of segues, and tangents.
It's never too late to change your love life. Something I hope you know is true, and the theme of this episode. It might feel like you're stuck with your lot in your (love) life, but I promise you, you're not.
This week, I wanted to talk about Red Flags. What red flags to look out for before and during your relationship, and how to spot them. I wanted to focus on red flags that are pretty common, because while there will always be red flags that are specific to your wants and needs, there are many that should be universal red flags.
Here’s what you can expect in this episode:
- 7 Red flags and how to spot them
- Why I won't date non-readers
- A Scottie Pippen trivia factoid
