Episode 99: Codependency – A Bond worth Breaking

“I need you.” “I can’t do this without you.” “Don’t Go.” “Stay with me. PLEASE!” To the untrained eye these could be taken as excerpts from your favorite romance movie or it could be something deeper. To be able to rely on a significant other in time of need is wonderful, but to feel that you need them to “live” is most certainly not. We delve into the topic of codependency for a bit, and even though we didn’t have a guest per se, we had a person in mind to mine from their experience.  Continue reading

Episode 96: I’m a Lover, Not a Fighter – Can There Be No Fighting in a Relationship?

So when that time comes, how are you going to deal with it? Run away and say goodbye if you want to survive screaming out “It’s time to be free?” Are you going to fight dirty and say things to emotionally cripple your partner just to win? Is it worth it? Are you going to take the high road and hold your opinion in and not fight. How good is that for your soul to not be able to share your thoughts? Listen in to see what we think on the matter!  Continue reading

Episode 95: Seeing Eye to Eye to “I Do” – Does Your Parent’s Vision of a Partner Match Your Own?

“No one is good enough for my daughter!” “I’m not gonna let some floosie take away my son!” YIKES! Have you come across statements like that in your life? These might be exaggerated but unfortunately they DO exist in some form or another. If you’re thinking about being in relationship (or already in one), there might be a chance that your parents won’t like your significant other. They might have had someone totally different in mind for you. So what do you do with that? Do you try to find someone that suits their wishes for you? Or do you just go with your gut and let your heart decide? Could there be a chance that your parent’s vision for a partner can match your own?

Episode 94: From Dating to Ratings – Is Reality TV Killing The Sanctity of Marriage? w/ Randy

Marriage was everything back in the day. It was such a pinnacle point in one’s life to have pride and joy in. Now-a-days, marriage seems like something you do when you’re bored on a Saturday night. With shows like “Married At First Sight”, “90 Day Fiance”, & “The Bachelor/(ette)”, people have been complaining that these shows make the sacred act of joining people for the rest of their lives into a farce. These shows make the ceremony or act to be trivial and flippant. While the shows are entertaining because their trainwreck premises, could their be truth to the complaints? Are these shows ruining the sanctity of marriage or is this just the sign of the times of how marriage is viewed by the populace? Tune in and see what we think!  Continue reading

Episode 92: Will They Commit or Should I Quit?: How Long is TOO Long To Move Forward? w/ Ricardo C.

“Shit or get off the pot”. Who hasn’t heard THAT one before? YUP, you know the scenario. One person, arms folded, tapping their feet with a stern face on while the other is scrambling to make a decision. Is the jig up? Who knows, it’s up to the parties involved. But while people might think what’s taking so long, another question that you should ponder is why it took so long in the first place. Decisions in a relationship whether it’s moving in or getting engaged should not be taken lightly. It takes a considerable amount of courage to do either so one shouldn’t just dive in without first going it over. On the other hand, how long does it take to come up with an answer. You’ve looked it over from any angle & went over every scenario. TWICE. When is it time to take the leap? Now.. or never?  Continue reading

Episode 91: A Number’s Game – Does Age Really Matter in A Relationship? w/Bruce Mulkey & Shonnie Lavender

Is age really nothing but a number? To some it’s everything. “I can’t date a person younger / older than me?! It’s just creepy!” To others, it’s a very ‘go with the flow.’ “The heart wants what it wants” and all that. But can your relationship be successful when you realize when you were 12 your beau was in diapers? What do you talk about? Can you keep up with one another? Are you too old and they too young that the both of you use the “airplane” method to feed each other? WHAT’S GOING ON?! Luckily we have 2 great guests to break this age gap down for us. Does love know no bounds no matter the timespan or should we just stick to people our own decade and apply to AARP together? Tune in to find out what we think.  Continue reading

Episode 90: Going Out On the Prowl w/ “The Bad Boy of the Dating Game” Mr. Locario

Confidence. Game. SWAG. In the dating game, you’re gonna need any one of those aforementioned words if you’re gonna make it out there in the field. It’s bad out there, and in this age of social media and dating apps, gaining a person’s attention is getting harder and harder each day. How do you make yourself stand out? How do you keep the person you have once you got got them? How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood? We have a special guest to help us out with our questions (okay, maybe not the last one). So tune in and listen as there are a lot of mic drops on this episode – particularly cause I’m clumsy – but ALSO because our guest is dropping some KNOWLEDGE up in this place!  Continue reading

Episode 89: Breaking Free & Taking A Walk on The Wild Side w/Naughty Lifestyle Expert Sienna Sinclaire

“Timid”, “tepid”, “tame”. Every heard these words before? How bout “reserved”, “restrictive”, “restrained”? Yeah? Cool. Now, ever heard these words used to describe how you are sexually? Yikes. Don’t fret, BedLoveBeyond has got you covered. For some reason, when it comes to sex we as a people are very modest. Yes, there are exceptions to the rule, but overall we can be quite the bashful bunny when it comes to being venerable in that arena. I’m not talking about getting freaky with strangers & one night stands, but more so long standing relationships and even in marriages (with kids!). We feel, well… “naughty” about being naughty! Huh? How can you not be comfortable with your partner or the person who has pledged to stay with you until they die? Who else would come in line after that for you to go “yeah, okay, I can bring down my wall for this person”? For this ep, we wanted to free and talk about the naughty side of life and some of the things you can get yourself into if you want go that route. Listen in and add some spice in your life!  Continue reading

Episode 88: With This Ring, I Me Wed – Is Sologamy Empowering Or Embarrassing? w/ Kathy Iandoli

Solo. Its definition is “a thing done by one person unaccompanied, in particular” but, depending how you look at it, can be taken different ways. Usually solo is looked at negatively. You’re by yourself, you’re doing this workload alone, there’s no one here to comfort you in your sorrows, etc. But now, particularly women, are reclaiming it to be a positive term. Sologamy has been trending for some time and now it’s at the forefront as something people might want to consider. Others see it as a cry for help and a look for desperation. Which side of the coin do you fall under? Listen in as Jenn, myself and our special guest Kathy discuss what this whole new wave is.  Continue reading

Episode 87: Don’t Judge A Profile By Its Selfie? – Would You Shun A Suitor Based On What They Post On Social Media?

Ladies, did someone ever slide in your DM and impress you so much that you just HAD to look at their page? Did you ever do a double take because of what was posted? They were *this close* to getting your number until you saw a chick with her face down ass up on his page. Fellas, you were about to ask for her digits before you saw that their whole wall was about God? Or Feminism? Do these things really raise flags in our eyes or are we just too judgmental? Jennifer and I discuss the in’s and outs of this hypothetical. Take a listen, will you?  Continue reading

Dating At The Speed(force) Of Light – Pt. 1

To bolding go where no Martini has gone before…

I’m going speed dating y’all and as you heard on episode 83, I am both nervous and excited. Actually, I’m glad I’m doing it because this is a long time coming. I’ve always been fascinated by the concept of speed dating, and also, it’s going to be geek oriented/themed so it’s to my advantage. But the real main reason why I’m glad to really put myself out there is because I might finally find someone, but more so… finally find someone along the lines of who I am. Someone who will complement me as opposed to conforming to their way of life.  Continue reading

Episode 86: Bring Me a Higher Love – Exploring Intimacy Farther then The Physical w/ Relationship Educator Yanni Brown

With dating, especially at the beginning, people tend to rush through the pleasantries and only want get to the “good” part. Not pointing fingers or anything, sex is AWESOME, but is that really the thing we should be focusing on? What happened to being the Tortoise instead of the Hare? What about the slow build? I’m not even talking about foreplay (although that’s nice too!). What happened to getting to know a person first? Getting to know the Ins and Outs of them as opposed to just going in and out of them? There are other ways of getting to know a person before you do the horizontal polka. That’s where our special guest steps in. Yanni Brown, relationship educator, lets us know the many ways of being intimate before we even get take our clothes off.  Continue reading

Episode 85: What’s The Issue with Today’s Woman? w/Relationship Coach Valerie Greene

In the interest of equality amongst the sexes, it was only fair to have a sequel to Episode 78’s “What’s the Issue with Today’s Man?”. After an informative talk with Elliott Katz on the issues of Men not being able to meet Women’s standards in dating, it was time to see the other side of the coin and assess the attempts at Love from some women in the dating sphere. Why haven’t they been successful in getting a man? Some of the revelations may shock you. I get to the nitty gritty with our guest today who (learning from experience) was more than happy to share some insight on the matter of females missing the mark when it came to love. Tune in to see what was said!

Episode 84: From Eternity to Earth – When Love Hails From Beyond w/Author Irene Weinberg

Once upon a time a show declared that Space was the “final frontier”. It was THE territory for us to discover, document, and disclose to the masses what was found during the journey of the mission. But, I wonder… is it really the last region left to explore? Sure, Space is MASSIVE and we know very little of it, but there is a place out there everyone will go to eventually that we know even less about. That is the Other Side of Life. Our generation won’t get to witness all the wonders of Space, but everyone, one day, will pass and we have yet to tap into any real substance into the realm of the Unknown – though today we had a possible glimpse. In this episode our guest today tells the story of her husband speaking to her from beyond the grave. In his messages he shares what it’s like to be on the the Other Side, the meaning (and purpose) of Life, how Heaven handles Evil, and so forth. As we delved into other topics to broaden our infancy of knowledge on the subject, it was at least comforting to know one of the few things that can survive the transference between dimensions is Love. Listen in and enjoy!  Continue reading

Episode 83: Would You Ever Sleep With A Guy…While Your Man Was Watching In Front of You? Wait, What the CUCK?!

Hi-dee-ho, neighbor! Talk about a topic, eh? What in the world?! But yeah, we went there. It was an episode we wanted to do back in the early days of BLB. After watching an episode of “You’re The Worst” about the subject we thought it should be revisited, for the first time. But what say you? Could you have sex with a person while your signficiant other looked on? Weird scenario right? Trust me, I hear you. But there is a culture that does this very thing. Some of them find it even empowering and brings the relationships closer! Who woulda thunk? Could you do it or is it too weird for you? Or maybe, you can’t WAIT to do it but don’t know how to bring it up to your partner? Now THERE’S a twist! Listen in to see what our answers are!  Continue reading

Episode 82: Searching for Love At the Age of The Baby Boomer w/ Author Angela Page

A couple episodes ago, we had the Millennial on to discuss love in their day & age, and this episode we discuss what’s going on in the later years of our lives with the baby boomer. The “Winter” of Life stage, as they say, is the stage where we’re no longer in our prime but still have some vigor in us. Our ideal state is to be in our twilight years with the one we promised ourselves to a lifetime ago, but sometimes that might not be the case. Whether through unfortunate circumstances or otherwise, we could be alone in our old age. What is one to do if faced with that possibility? The dating world is not how it once was. It has drastically changed from the Sadie Hawkins Dance to sliding in someone’s DMs. How you do feel they will fare in this new age world of digital pimping & dick pics? Take a listen and see what we discover!  Continue reading

Episode 81: Being Happy After Heartache – Healing Your Soul and Walking Away (in Your New Soles & Heels!) w/ Author Kim Interdonato

Whatever stage of love you’re at (puppy, adolescent, “grown folk”, or mature), experiencing heartache can be soul crushing. The loss of Love and the erasure of a future with that person definitely brings a storm cloud of emotions that can make even the strongest willed person quiver with uncertainty about getting better. Whether you dodged a bullet, “it was for the best”, or you’ve convinced yourself you lost “the one”, the end result of the relationship doesn’t matter. It’s what happens after that needs the most focus. Today, we have Kim on the show to talk about how she recovered and why it’s important to be happy after heartbreak and be more alive with life.  Continue reading
