Host of the millennial dating podcast We Met At Acme, Lindsey Metselaar, joins B+L to talk about how to navigate wedding season, including when to give a plus one, going to wedding as a plus one with your S/O, and what happens when your boyfriend doesn’t want to come as your plus one. We also dive into if it’s ever okay for your boyfriend to follow instagram models, how many is too many, and if there is a situation where you should really bring it up.

We also answer a listener a email about what to do when you’ve been dating someone for a few years in your twenties but start to lose interest.

B+L are back together to wrap up the season. We talk L’s next relationships stage and give an update.

Our first recurring guest, Anonymous S from Episode 7: So You Think Your Junk Is Brilliant is back to give us a life update.

Episode 29: When and How To DTR a New Relationship

Are you recently seeing someone and found yourself going on less first dates and more second, third and fourth dates? In this episode L discusses her latest bae and her and B give some advice on when to have the exclusive conversation, when to have the boyfriend/girlfriend conversation and why a lot of online dating romances end after the third/fourth date mark. We discuss a recent reddit thread on the subject and discuss what made our last online dating romances end and of course how to explore new bedroom stuff when you start sleeping exclusively with one person.

Episode 25: The Fuck Boy Christmas Special

This week we break down the fuck boy-are they born or created? How to spot if the guy you’re dating is a fuck boy (or if you yourself have fuck boy tendencies), and how to treat a fuck boy if you find one in your life. B+L talk about posting on reddit, Big Mouth, and why and how people find themselves in relationships in this Christmas Special!

Episode 22: Saturday is for the Boys

This week B+L host two new guests (and current listeners!) on the podcast. New York based R— 24 and single— and J— 25 and in a committed relationship— come on to the pod and answer all of our burning questions about what the hell is going on in the straight male mind. We chat about cheating, what it means to sleep with someone on a first date, splitting the bill and following ex’s on social media… with arguably too much laughter in between.

Episode 19: A Majority of Issues While Dating as a Minority

Prompted by a recent ‘Dear Abby’ write-in on whether an Indian couple should give their child an American name, B+L discuss their own ethnicity and their experiences while dating as minorities. They share some cringe-y dating stories and pro-tips to keep mind while dating someone who is a minority.

We've all been there, and no matter if you've been rejected to your face or via snapchat. In this week's episode B+L enter a lively discourse about soft rejection vs hard rejection, share their best of the worse rejection stories, and when you get rejected next (because it's going to happen) how to get the fuck over in as minimal time as possible so you're rearing and ready for your next heartbreak.
