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 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 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

Whether it’s through song, poetry, spoken word or tweet, women are letting their feelings known about the opposite sex – and it’s not good.

What HAS happened to men and is there a way to fix the problem? Listen as we try to get to the bottom of this for all (Wo)mankind!  Continue reading

Episode 77: What is Love in the Day & Age of The Millennial w/guest Jasmine Skyy

Ahhh, the Millennial. What is there to say that hasn’t already been said about this generation of people?

Episode 75: Is “Sowing Your Wild Oats” Necessary On the Journey to Finding Love?

Don’t give me that face. What? You’ve never asked yourself that question before? Well, yeah.. it’s not the FIRST thing to come to mind when talking about love, sure. But it is something to look back and think on. Do you feel you got enough experience out of life before thinking about taking the big plunge of commitment? I’m not necessarily talking about learning the Kama Sutra front and back, but do you feel you need to have a stage in life where you go through your wild years before settling down and getting that side out of your system?

He’s another wrench in the mix: What if you feel you missed that opportunity? How does life fare for you now? What do you do? Can you make it up this late in the game? What should you do? Are you scared to settle because you might have that urge down the line? Famed Comedian Patrice O’ Neal said you have to womanize before settling down or you’ll end up like Tiger Woods and that ‘side’ of you will come out eventually and we all saw what happened to him. Does he have validity in his statement or is it all hogwash? Sit back and enjoy Jenn & I trying to figure it out!  Continue reading
