Andrea :) You are great. Don't let any trolls out there get you down!

Hi Everyone :)

Yay for Grandma Phyllis!
Avatar 7:05pm Ange:

This is about how we're all trolls when we make fun of online dating -- glad you guys are listening!
Avatar 7:08pm BadGuyZero:

I make fun of online dating to conceal my inability to do it correctly.
  7:09pm JakeGould:

Hey folks! So happy to be here. Hate to interrupt, but I am stuck at an airport in Turkey. And I desperately need $500 right away or else I go to the jailing.
  7:09pm yanni:

i make fun of online dating because it is pitiful . good bye.
  7:10pm JakeGould:

I used to be on OK Cupid until I realized how fruitless & ultimately disconnected it is. Waste of time. Real world is better. Also, I need that $500 most urgently.
Avatar 7:12pm Ange:

What are the online dating cliches that annoy you guys the most?
Avatar 7:13pm Callieflower:

Men saying that they're "sick of being burned" and want someone with "no drama"
Avatar 7:13pm BadGuyZero:

My "loves to laugh" is when people on OK Cupid put "it wouldn't be private then" [or some variation] as their response to "The most private thing I'm willing to admit."
  7:13pm yanni:

um , how about online dating ? How many dates do you need?
  7:13pm JakeGould:

@Ange, people who post that they like to go to dive bars.

"Tired of the bar scene"
Avatar 7:14pm Danne D:

"overarching"? Was that a pun there?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:14pm Skirkie:

Laid back
Avatar 7:14pm Danne D:

"Partner in crime"
  7:15pm JakeGould:

Who brags about parallel parking in an online ad?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Skirkie:

I have never seen bragging about parallel parking.
  7:15pm Sam:

When you say "I love to laugh" you're saying you have a good sense of humor. There's nothing wrong with that, it's important. Some people don't love to laugh.
Avatar 7:15pm Danne D:

"I like all kinds of music except rap and country"
Avatar 7:16pm BadGuyZero:

Sometimes when I'm bored I'll do a search for profiles with the word "Mumford" and hide every one of them.
Avatar 7:16pm northguineahills:

Who can't parallel park? I don't even own a car, and it's still no problem even in the city.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:16pm Skirkie:

Or being a foodie in general, which goes for real life as well.

"Oh, you like food? No me, I hate that stuff."

Everybody likes food.
  7:17pm JakeGould:

@Amnge, “I make a mean breakfast.” Is that like code for morning sex?
Avatar 7:18pm Ange:

I think the parallel parking stuff might be more specific to California -- in NY/NJ we can all parallel park like a champ
Avatar 7:18pm Danne D:

The theme seems to be that Ange thinks everything is coded about sex :o)
Avatar 7:18pm Ange:

@Jake -- As my intern pointed out, I clearly think everything on online dating profiles is code for sex..!
  7:19pm Sam:

You go Ange! This guy is too quick to criticize. It's good to mention the stuff you like, even if it's conventional.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Skirkie:

I had wfmu in my favorites section once upon a time.
Avatar 7:20pm Callieflower:

I do look at that to see if a dude is into super creepy movies and musicians. It says a lot
Avatar 7:20pm BadGuyZero:

I'm annoyed by people who boast about not owning a television. Like they think they're so above all of us.
Avatar 7:20pm Danne D:

Wow, I just found the 100% perfect profile in this regard.

References that she's looking for her Clyde, y'know like Bonnie and Clyde.

And yes brunchin' is one of the six things she can't live without.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:20pm Skirkie:

It means he'll talk your ear off about beer.
Avatar 7:21pm Ange:

I'm very pro-listing WFMU in your profile -- or obscure bands that only a WFMU listener would understand
Avatar 7:21pm Danne D:

@Skirkie - true, I think it's more about him justifying to himself the money he spent on the homebrew kit.
  7:22pm Sam:

You brew your own beer = you're a total hipster dork
Avatar 7:22pm BadGuyZero:

I mention WFMU.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:22pm Skirkie:

It also means he knows how to clean and sanitize things, the home brewer.
Avatar 7:22pm Danne D:

@Ange - I'm pro-WFMU in the profile as well.

On a different note they give me way more Vegans in my results than I think possible.
Avatar 7:22pm BadGuyZero:

Having a baby that you bottle feed also means you know how to clean and sanitize things.
  7:23pm Robert:

So were you lying when you said you could say it on the radio, or did you just think better of it later?
Avatar 7:23pm northguineahills:

Well, isn't dating all about sex anyways?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:23pm Skirkie:

Homebrew is like a baby that you only have to worry about for like a month.
  7:24pm Marc:

Andrea that was great, about homebrew very good!
Avatar 7:24pm BadGuyZero:

I hate when people post group photos and multiple people are in every one and they don't indicate in any way which one they are.
  7:24pm P-90:

The guys who say they make their own beer DON'T mean with a kit they got for Christmas, it's a hobby like gardening, they're really into it, and yes, they might talk about it a lot.
And NO, it's not about....
...Andrea, were you drinking when you did this interview?
Avatar 7:25pm Ange:

I thought I could say that on the radio -- but then I got too scared. As a rule of thumb, I am overly careful these days. The word was, um, ejaculate.
Avatar 7:25pm Callieflower:

lol, Andrea :)
Avatar 7:25pm BadGuyZero:

I can't remember who said that it was ok to date a guy that owns a Leonard Cohen album/CD, but if he has more than one that's a sign that he's an asshole.
  7:26pm JakeGould:

@Ange “…clearly think everything on online dating profiles is code for sex..!” I pretty much do not disagree with that. You have a good sense of… Something.
Avatar 7:26pm Callieflower:

I've never done yoga, so Sam is my new future husband, right?
Avatar 7:26pm northguineahills:

yeah, I have some friends that brew beer, it took a few years before they tweaked it right. Now, it's good drinking.
Avatar 7:26pm Ange:

Not drinking for this one! But it was at midnight while I was prepping the show last night. All my narration was done at 3am FYI....
  7:26pm Robert:

It was, verbatim, "ejaculate"? Not something vulgar for that?

Yeah, I guess you never know these days -- where "these days" has been about 30 yrs.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:27pm dale:

i'm an fmu supporter - AND a home brewer and wine maker. this conversation is pretentious.
Avatar 7:27pm BadGuyZero:

If I've learned anything from OK Cupid it's that my romantic possibilities would likely improve greatly by moving across the country.
  7:29pm Robert:

I think what Howard Stern showed (when distinguishing from the treatment Oprah Winfrey got) was that talking about this subject matter and giggling draws the fire, while doing it with a perfectly straight "face" doesn't.
Avatar 7:29pm Callieflower:

this is one of the reasons why I'm happy to leave Vermont and move to NYC: there will actually be a dating pool
Avatar 7:30pm Jeff:

Yeah, basically dating is all about finding someone to have sex with (and, sure, also do other stuff), but writing profiles and other initial communication are all about having the good taste not to actually talk about the sex part. Not at first.
  7:30pm P-90:

Andrea: I've seen a lot of these "profile pages", and I think a LOT of what people say is about sex, but mentioning yoga is usually not about sex, "into brunch" is definitely not about sex, and "brews beer" is SO NOT about sex, or male........bodily fluids
Avatar 7:30pm northguineahills:

Well, I'm probably doing the opposite. Leaving NYC to a place w/ no dating pool now that I'm breaking up w/ my gf of 8 years.
Avatar 7:32pm Danne D:

Have a great night everyone :)
Signing off.

Keep up the good stuff, Andrea :)
  7:38pm P-90:

I believe that's the young King Arthur that breaks the girl chipmunk's heart
  7:40pm P-90:

I think he's right, I think some of the wittiest, most interesting people post some of the blandest profiles.
  7:41pm JakeGould:

I believe that guys who brag about their home-brew beer have small hoo-hahs. So I do think it is about overcompensating.
  7:41pm JakeGould:

Also, “The Secret of Nimh” is clearly a code for the female g-spot.
  7:42pm P-90:

@Jake: so "The Sword in the Stone' is code for....?
  7:45pm JakeGould:

“The Sword in the Stone” is all about the Arthurian legend of getting pegged by a monk after brunch.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:46pm dale:

..while in the downward dog position.
  7:47pm P-90:

...while parallel parked in front of the beer brewing supplies store.
  7:48pm JakeGould:

Also, after drinking the monk’s special magical brew.
Avatar 7:48pm Callieflower:

I had so many men online lecture me to tell me that the only way I'd find a decent man would be if I were to make a Christian Mingle profile
Avatar 7:48pm Callieflower:

Then I just told them to shut up and stop trying to tell me how to date
  7:51pm P-90:

He needs much, much more than "a hug."
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm dale:

came back to my place and see my carboys.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:52pm dale:

"come". COME.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:54pm dale:

why do so many people today sound like a squeeky screen door trailing off into a quiet question mark?
  7:55pm JakeGould:

Dale, I think millenials are known to be extra apologetic for little to no reason.
  7:55pm like:

like like like like etc.
  7:57pm JakeGould:

Jesus, this guy is blubbering.
  7:57pm P-90:

He's having a small meltdown
  7:58pm JakeGould:

Also, 9 years is not a big difference.
Avatar 7:59pm BadGuyZero:

Obviously she's never heard "Car Talk."
  7:59pm JakeGould:

“Car Talk” is horrible. THERE I SAID IT!
  8:01pm JakeGould:

And my “Car Talk” is horrible, it means I like cuddling.
  8:01pm P-90:

Not being stuck with the strict 60-minute limit must help when doing the podcast version
Avatar Swag For Life Member 8:02pm dale:

jake - you don't know your johnson rod from your king pin
Avatar 8:05pm Callieflower:

Car Talk makes me so uncomfortable
  10:47am Amanda:

I say I do yoga in my profile so that guys will think I do more than go to work and binge watch on Netflix. Thank you Sam for that.
