About this Episode
On this episode, we believe that love is greater than anything. Our relationships to ourselves and all things outside of ourselves when operating from a place of love has the best outcomes. The most fundamental loving relationship is between romantic partners. The desire to meet, fall in love and form lasting partnership is something that unites us as humans.
Before the internet, you'd meet at a place of worship, schools, bars, concerts or maybe the library. Sure that still happens but 48% of 18- to 29-year-olds say they have ever used a dating site or app, and the share is 38% among those ages 30 to 49. Lesbian, gay or bisexual (LGB) adults are roughly twice as likely as those who are straight to say they ever used a dating platform (55% vs. 28%).
It seems that online dating is how at least half of us are finding potential partners. The internet is the information highway, and in this case, the highway to love.
On this episode I sat down with Marco (who identifies as gay) and my daughter Lorren, (who identifies as straight). Both are single, and one is happily so.
Lorren is a beautiful black woman who is Navigating her career and the dating scene in LA. She is an actor and artist, who is single and ready to mingle.
Marco, is a handsome black man who is a successful PR professional, in LA. He is happily dating, but not seeking anything serious.
Both are originally from the Midwest, and will share the experiential truth about dating in 2020. Some of these facts we cover in this episode are eyebrow raising.
