This episode, Alpha Counter’s Sean Ryan helps me discuss the sometimes surprising reactions of your friends and family when you start dating someone new. We share our experiences and try to explain why the people who should be the happiest about your new-found love may be giving your grief or being more honest than you’d like. Your new relationship has a ripple effect that touches every aspect of your life, flowing out to your old relationships and potentially causing teh_dramaz. Sean and I experience this first-hand during recording when a member of our studio audience gets rowdy and shows her true feelings. Hissing ensues.
We ship every possible iteration on How I Met Your Mother, and Sean and I flip tables over “Vague-booking” on Facebook and people who don’t understand how names work. Listen, just don’t call him Ryan, okay?

Paris and I discuss our favorite fandoms and why we adore fictional men who fall on the spectrum somewhere between raging asshole and sociopath. We get into the difference between fantasizing about these larger-than-life characters, and what you might learn about women from the fanfic, tumbl-ing, and general ramblings of fandom. We kibitz over The Doctor/Rose/River and flip tables over spoiler-phobes and trigger warnings. Spoilers and Triggers – Get You Some!
So, c’mon and read some fanfic, explore fandom, and find out what’s going on in the minds of the people you want to date.
