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?
