Girls Gotta Eat

Aug 29, 2022

As the 10th anniversary of dating apps approaches, we're answering the question: What are we even doing here? We're joined once again by GGE fave, Jared Freid, to get inside the male mind when it comes to the apps (Why are guys on them? Why do they pen pal? How do you know if a guy only wants to fuck?), discuss the love and hate for them, and how to best approach the swiping experience. We're also reporting our audience poll results for how many people are actually on the apps and succeeding, and giving tips for how to get from app-to-date and best opening lines. And we recap why Ashley officially deleted Hinge and the dream guy Rayna met in the wild. Enjoy!

Follow Jared on Instagram @JaredFreid and check out his podcasts U Up? and The JTrain Podcast.
