Ep.102 – Do Online-Only Interactions Sabotage the Dating Experience?

Get Episode 102 here!

Roger is back to talk about the New Year’s Eves of our past, his exciting adventures into the world of board game development, and we discuss why some people think it’s so damn cool to hate holidays.

We give a small fan review of The Last Jedi (spoilers abound), The Punisher, and we talk about our love for The Crown.

Also, the Black Mirror episode the USS Callister bothered me so much I couldn’t sleep!

Are online-only interactions killing the excitement and romance of a potential new
date? Do we give ourselves too much of an opportunity to mess things up because we don’t have to follow normal time constraints? Are we missing out on the other biological signals and cues because we’re not occupying the same physical space? Are we being too logical in the absence of the magic of attraction? I don’t know; do you? I’m genuinely asking.

Tables are flipped over too many promotional emails and filthy articles with such foul language!

Ep.100 – The World’s End: No really, it’s the fucking apocalypse.

This is it! Episode 100 – the final regularly scheduled episode of Mating Habits of the Modern Geek.

It’s a full house when Em, Andrew Bartlett, Paris, The Business, LLC and Sean Ryan join me to give the show a proper send off. It’s loud, chaotic, the cold open is too long, and as per usual, we barely mention dating – you know, a pretty standard show.

We do all flip a collective table over the probable end of Western Civilization.

As always, we owe everything to the folks who subscribe and listen to the show.

It has been an absolute pleasure, and hope to see you over on State of the Geek, We Don’t STOP for Chests, Colin!, or any of the other half dozen shows I’ll be on.

Please stay subscribed to make sure you don’t miss out on new sporadic Mating Habits Episodes that will be popping up from time to time.

Thank you – Kelley

Ep.99 – Finishing Moves: Score that second date!

mhmg99negan

It’s our penultimate episode! Sean Ryan takes a break from daddy detail to chat with me about getting that second date.

We spoil the shit out of Walking Dead, talk about Rise of the Tomb Raider, Destiny’s Festival of the Lost, and Sean archives the entirety of AlphaCounter.com for prosperity.

Tables are flipped and the begging begins in earnest for submissions for the last episode of Mating Habits, where all the hosts will be on hand to answer your questions, give your shoutouts, and bid farewell.

Em survives Hurricane Matthew and joins me for our next revisit of episodes 3 and 4 from many moons ago. We talk about how much it sucks to get up the courage to ask someone out on a date, and how bad it feels when they say no.

But on a lighter note, we discuss anime, scary shows on the TV, and all the other podcasts I’m in. We flip tables over terrible Trump-positive memes and price gouging during a natural disaster.

Paris and The Business, LLC help me revisit our first Mating Habits episode together – Episode 2!

We change our minds about a couple of things when it comes to where to meet new people that you might want to date.

We also talk Rise of Iron, Longmire, and new podcasts. Tables get flipped over ghost tour guides, people who don’t like anything, and folks who should know how to act before they leave the house.

Andrew spends the week doing fun stuff with me like seeing Ghostbusters and rocking out with Flight of the Conchords. We spoil the hell out of all the movies, including the new Star Trek Beyond, rave about Stranger Things, and squee over all the upcoming movie trailers.

We discuss how far is too far when you’re Googling people you’re interested in, and we flip tables over vaper and shoppers.
