Episode 41: Sick Days - Fifty First Dates - The Podcast - A Crazy Beautiful Love Story

In this episode, I got sick and instead of going out, played pen pal. Two of the guys I never met in person fell right into two of the categories from last week’s essay: The Five Kinds of Guys I Met During My Fifty First Dates Experiment. Also, I talk about the exploding industry of dating coaches and courses. This podcast is based upon my memoir Fifty First Dates. It’s available wherever ebooks and paperbacks are sold.

Episode 40: Dating Outside of My Neighborhood - Fifty First Dates - The Podcast - A Crazy Beautiful Love Story

In this episode, I had my first date with a neurodivergent man. In his words, he was on the spectrum with Asperger’s. He was…late, though. By twenty or thirty minutes despite me arranging a date in his part of Los Angeles, nine miles and half hour from mine. The guy I met this summer asked me a question that inspired my latest essay published by The Good Men Project, Hello, Love Publication. The Five Kinds of Guys I Met During My Fifty First Dates Experiment. Books mentioned in this podcast: How Not to Die Alone by Logan Ury This podcast is based upon my memoir Fifty First Dates.

Episode 39: The Art Show - Fifty First Dates - The Podcast - A Crazy Beautiful Love Story

In this episode, I went on a third! date with The Hiker. This was a ‘nice girl,’ ‘people pleasing’ mistake. The moment I invited him, I wanted to take it back. Unfortunately, he responded nearly instantaneously. This was one of those guys where you think there’s not much wrong, maybe I should give it a chance. But in retrospect, there was a lot wrong…incompatibility. He liked his food bland, his art bland, and his life bland. I live in full volume and color.

Episode 38: The Hiker - Fifty First Dates - The Podcast - A Crazy Beautiful Love Story

In this episode, I went on a second date with The Hiker. The first date with him was uneventful, or rather the night ended with me back in bed with Thunderbolt. I went on the second date with The Hiker because I was in the mindset that love and attraction can grow. What I left out of that equation was that nothing can grow in the infertile soil of incompatibility. This podcast is based upon my memoir Fifty First Dates.

Episode 37: Contrived Quaint - Fifty First Dates - The Podcast - A Crazy Beautiful Love Story

In this episode, I went on a date with a man I wouldn’t trust in any context. He spent the entire THREE hours we were together watching the little girl behind me. She was 5. Also, he didn’t like Mexican women. Talk about two unattractive qualities. Then he negged me. After all that, he wanted a second date. This one proved that a high match percentage on Ok Cupid and a cute face are not two good reasons to go on a date. This podcast is based upon my memoir Fifty First Dates.

Episode 36: It's Autumn and It's Raining - Fifty First Dates - The Podcast - A Crazy Beautiful Love Story

In this episode, I consider listener advice. It was good. She’s on top of the filtering process. It weeds out married men as well as men who aren’t who they say they are. I’m all in. Still on my 2021 dating hiatus. When I get back to it, you can be sure I’ll be filtering as if my life depends on it. In the meantime, I’m working hard to clean up my side of the street.
