Nobody wants to say they met their boo on a stupid dating app. For whatever reason, our culture still associates dating apps with desperation. But here’s the thing: sure, it’d be nice to meet people in person like the good old days when grandpa rode to school on a donkey and your friends actually looked at you instead of their phones when you had conversations, but those days are over.

Dating apps; so many people use them, yet the stigma still remains. The hook-up culture linked to the world of swiping leaves some feeling defeated or desperate, but single people in search of love or company keep coming back! There has to be some success…right? On today’s show, Emily is diving deep into why we bother with online dating, as well as answering some of your most perplexing sex questions!

On this show, Emily puts the dating app taboo to bed, giving you a few pointers to help you get lucky online, and updating us on her own cyber-romance encounters.
