Episode 069: “I do” Because I didn’t know better Now we get insight on Misty and her story. We listen as she shares her story with a little help from Chris, their friend Glenn, and a few questions from our Podcast Hosts Leanne and The Boyfriend. Misty was in college and was in band with most of her friends and her boyfriend. Her boyfriend was jewish and Misty was a christian. His name has not been revealed but I will refer to him as Creep. I feel the name suits him, and as this story unfolds I think you will too. Her boyfriend is well educated, worldly, outgoing, and comes from a family with money. He is methodical and always has an itinerary on what they do. Misty does give him a good argument at times – like we all do. Creep also has some Daddy issues. Misty and Creep got engaged and planned a nice wedding. Misty was paying for the wedding and Creep was paying for the drinks at the reception and the honeymoon to Hawaii. Creep asked if his best friend (who was a woman) could be in the wedding as a bridesmaid and could they have a special dance at the reception. Misty

Episode 067: Episode 067: Dating Mishaps, Misconceptions, and Missed Connections with special guests Marc Adam Smith and Madeline O’Hara. Todays’ discussion was with previous guests, Marc Adam Smith and Madeline O’hara. Both are long time improv friends of Leanne. Today they shared their thoughts on dating and how some of it has changed in the past few years. First, I should mention they live in New York City. Safety is a big issue for various reasons. When it comes to technology and dating sites, you should double check the website your using or Google the person you’re interested in for more info. Sometimes you find important information that they may refrain from sharing with you. Meet in a public place and have a friend nearby to rescue you if you have doubts. Never have them come to your apartment or place of employment. If you are having too much to drink, get yourself a cab and go home. Don’t trust Uber or Lyft if you aren’t sure they are legit. Never share too much info on websites either.  Maddie shared some of the experiences she and her girlfriend have had as a gay couple. When visiting home in a southern state together, they felt they’d be frowned upon as the
