Two podcasts recaps in one week ! Lucky you. That’s because for the first time in FROME history, we played host to a power-packed collaboration with Kristen Doute and Luke Broderick on their podcast “Sex, Love, and What Else Matters” The result ? A big and beautiful fusion of these two worlds, that brought a unique twist to our typical conversations, ensuring listeners from both sides were in for a real treat.
We delved into the liberating journey of breaking free from the constraints of being pen pals, exploring the meaning of what real connections are in this digital age. We then unravelled the phenomenon of soft ghosting, shedding light on the intricacies of modern-day communication. When then dove into the complexities of relationships, exploring topics like overcoming the fear of commitment and why people sometimes bail in relationships when their feelings are just too much. The power of emotional intelligence in fostering healthy connections was also highlighted, adding a layer of a delicious depth to the discourse.
The spotlight then shifted to safety, with Kristen passionately underlining the significance of taking control of one’s safety during meetups. We explored the advantages of having an app as a trusted ally in the realm of dating, championing the use of our in-app features, and unveiling the safety elements that contribute to creating a truly memorable and romantic rendezvous. One that is not only successful, but also secure.
Lessons I learnt along the way ? So, so many. But it was when we jointly addressed the Dating Dilemma head-on, with a truly enlightening and captivating discussion on who faces more pressure on first dates that my eyebrows were raised in interest. Our conversation continued to unravel the intricacies of crafting the perfect first date experience, and the hidden pressures men often grapple with, which both Kristen and I found not only surprising, but so dang interesting.
