Episode 83: Here's Why You Shouldn't Vent About Your Boo to Your BFF

We discuss the great engagement debate from this season of The Bachelorette. Do you have to get engaged to show your commitment or can you just "date seriously" after life on the Bachelor/Bachelorette.

Episode 78: Why Is It So Hard to Make Friends As An Adult & Is "The One That Got Away" A Real Thing?

Why do adult women have such a hard time making friends? We're all going through the same things, so we explain why we think it's cool to ask a new friend out on a lady date. Making friends as an adult is awkward and weird and we're here for you!
