Episode 9 Polly Wanna Amorous
Wonderful Podcast! Certainly interesting and very informative ;) Wasn’t sure where it was going and liked how it unfolded. Interesting that he started out wanting a relationship as the "transitional guy”; was he wanting a traditional relationship or polyamorous one then? Possibly that’s why many of the women say him as not boyfriend material? That and the fact that he couldn’t afford steak may have played a roll as him fitting the “just for fun/sex” guy. Just a thought. Loved how you brought it back around towards the end Mel to point out that possibly some of these desires to have more than one person fulfill your fantasies can be satisfied with compromise and exploration and openness as a couple. Felt he was not getting your point. Great job and interesting nonetheless!
I listened to this podcast sevral times. Melani has a great voice and she and Rick "play off" each other very well. Amidst the humor, my perspective changed and I realized how lucky I've been and how grateful I am to be in a "break your heart" kindof relationship. Melani is amazing and her articles always leaving me thinking about life a little differently.
Laughed, cried, and learned!
I have listened to the first three episodes and have enjoyed all of them. Melani is a great interviewer and seems to have that rare quality of making her subjects feel at ease and safe. I find a lesson in each episode I have listened to. I am not single and have been married for over 30 years, but there is value in her stories that can be learned by all - not just the single people.
