Ep. 26 – Stats and Standards: “Y’all Got Issues”


Episode 26 – Stats and Standards: “Y’all Got Issues”

We’re 1 Year Old! Mating Habits presents our last episode of Cycle 5 where William and I break it down in plain English: There’s a reason why your online dating messages may not be getting a response, or why you may not be getting unsolicited messages from women. I finally announce my new Single Status, William and I share our latest “encounters” on OkCupid, and we dissect an interesting experiment performed by Jon Millward where it shows how women receive so many more unsolicited messages than men, she may be too fed up with “Hey, sexy,” and “Wanna fuck?” messages by the time she gets to yours – I know I am.

We also discuss how taking care of yourself and working on your outside appearance can help bolster the awesomeness you have inside. #fitness is the hottest hashtag of the summer, and taking care of your health and/or your appearance can help you build confidence, and help rejection hurt less. You don’t have to start working out everyday or buy a whole new wardrobe, but some simple changes can help you make the best impression possible.

Tables are flipped over the Reaction TO the Reaction TO the announcement of the 12th Doctor – folks overreact to the under reaction, and we react to that.

It’s been an amazing year, and we’re not stopping anytime soon. Thank you for listening, for all of your support, and looking forward to many, many more years here at Mating Habits of the Modern Geek!

  1. Two lesbians and a married woman? Isn’t that a full house?

    The issue that I was running into was that I’ll get in a good back-and-forth with someone and they’ll suddenly delete their account. It’s a bummer, but I tend to assume that no matter how cool I might have been to them, it wasn’t worth dealing with the other douchebags on the site that bother them.

What say you?
