Much ado about nothing
The first episode about greetings in online dating is repetitive and trite. 25 minutes where they meander into inane or the obvious. Consider this statement "Hey is a necessary evil", you know what I am saying.
Good idea, poor execution.
This sounded like a fun and interesting premise, but the first episode was a boring let down. The material was obvious, redundant, outdated, and bland. And next week... a conversation about dick pics. Wow, so uncreative. Don't waste your time.
Entertaining and reality-based
I have listened to all three episodes of this podcast so far and I really like it. I wasn't sure how Gimlet was going to pull off a sponsored podcast, but they do it really well. I am happily married and in love - met my spouse on eHarmony almost 6 years ago, before Tinder. I find this podcast fascinating because I have single girlfriends who go through the same scenarios that are discussed and it's interesting to hear these scenarios dissected. This podcast reminds me a lot of Aziz Ansari's book - give both a try and be entertained by how people are finding (or not finding) their mates these days!
