When the line between work and pleasure begins to blur, things can get sketchy quick. In this week’s episode, Holly and Ethan discuss how to network without giving the impression one wants something more.
Continuing with their experimental formats, Holly and Ethan decide to “free ball” this week’s episode. They start things off with Ethan’s rant about buzzwords before transitioning into holly’s long running interaction with “Gym Guy”. Things don’t go according to plan and the duo comes to find out that two Hollys are not better than one.
This week’s show has a different spin on as we welcome our first guest to our first “onsite” recording. Join Holly, Ethan and Holly’s mother Anna as they discuss their expectations in regards to marriage.
Holly has been having issues convincing would-be suitors that she’s not interested in them romantically. For one reason or another, they just aren’t getting the message, which prompts a discussion about what it takes to end the pursuit. Along the way, things get weird and Ethan begins to worry that Holly has inadvertently created a cult of serial killers, which is something that benefits no one (except true crime writers).
Wedding season is fast approaching, a subject that Holly tackled early last week with her Survival Guide: Wedding Season post on The Bitter Lemon. Seeing this as a good opportunity to break down the ins and outs out wedding season from both perspectives, the two come together and create “Weddiquette” for both singles and married folks.
Enjoy, but not too much, we’d hate you to grow too much as a person.
First dates are tough, but they can be made even more difficult when the participants struggle to find things to talk about. Sometimes, however it’s not the lack of conversation one has to worry about.
In today’s episode, Holly and Ethan discuss inappropriate first date conversation material and why thinking before speaking is incredibly important. Holly’s expertise comes from being the victim of bad first date conversations while Ethan has a bit more “hands on” experience with it. Both want to make sure you’re “weird convo” free.
