"I've seen you know I have friends who have friends and people have shared some stories on social media of ways of circumventing the Times that we're in to still like show their sincerity and and you know of you know Advanced relationships that they're excited about and I think you guys can do that. But right now you're F- you're sitting in limbo. Maybe he's doing the same thing kind of waiting for one person to make the move and I think it sounds like you guys have had enough of conversations where if he responds in a way that makes you feel like you're being too too much than that just shows that maybe he's not ready. He's not ready and it won't be he won't not ready. I mean like this. Isn't it for him? You know either lacks dirt maturity it. Yeah I WOULD. I would set potato. Say we're going out Friday night on facetime date you gotta get dressed up and we're GONNA have you're GONNA have dinner. He's going to have dinner. You both can have wine and you have facetime date where you actually have a daily. You're sitting in the oval with somebody. But I do it in a creative way and this is what this type of. I don't WanNA call it aggression. It's not called aggression but this type of creativity was exactly what he did on our real dates and it was a lot at first but I have to say that once it was there in front of me. And maybe if you're presenting or you know he'll kill open to presenting or being ready for that because it it's not the same right now but I think that you have to throw it out there. It's a I think the brace that yeah. The difference between what seems aggressive or assertive like just comes down to compatibility and interest in like you have to take risks once in awhile too at the risk of being rejected which is not a reflection of you. You know like if you get rejected. This means that wasn't the right situation. But you have to put yourself out there you know. I know it's Cliche to because the right person will find it. Charming and interesting and and and he or she will tell their friends like you know one girl can be like. Oh he some guy did this got it was kind of weird and aggressive and then the same girl with a different guy would tell us stories her friends and all our big. Oh my God I wish the guy would do like it. All comes down to like compatibility and interests but like you. Don't get down on yourself because everything you're doing is right as long as you don't get down on yourself if you do reach out. And he says I heard go go. Go go go steph. Yeah if he bounces or leaves or whatever it is as long as you don't say yourself condoms such an idiot while rechanneled stupid. Don't do that. You're not doing anything wrong doing everything right. I mean this is the optimal time to go. Somebody if you were to get me from but it sounds like you have a lotta just hesitation and fears about like doing it wrong and thebenz point at this point. There's it's just it's just you need to find out how compatible you guys are and you're not doing anything wrong and if it doesn't work out it's not a time to kick yourself in like Ria Sassari like no it. Just it just wasn't there you know. And that's and that is okay great. Great advice you your with. You're I don't think you're ever going to have to worry about being assertive. I just you seem so worried about it. Like that's those people aren't the people who are being weird and creepy and assertive.

"Go on a date. You supposed to have differences. You're supposed that you're absolutely right. Yeah we've developed too many non-negotiables in our ourselves and our dating lives and like the certainly have some but you know part of the beauty of like an assuming you guys would know this. There's got to be beliefs that you guys had that have changed the result of learning the different perspective of your partner all in pain. They'd say they made to end the compromise at different times. Something that you have to be willing or ready. And that's what she believes in in in whatever she lives in human sacrifice every Sunday night. The hardest thing that I'm still not good at is. Ben Is so full of s in most of these cases that he goes and tells people stories or like if people don't recognize me right away or whatever he will he will mess with them and. I am so uncomfortable still to this day. It's like my least favorite thing and he's like you know I hate that. Just leave the room if I mess. If I'm I can't live in keyboard. Say like he was a wide receiver for the Lions. He'll just make up stories and at my school and I got a full ride to Duke for basketball. I played a little professional but I wanted to be in radio because it as much so. That's what it was then sold. Just lean on that but it's not getting very terrible. Is that good yeah. That's what I find that surprising that you're not good at that ginger. I feel like it's great to have like Ben. Obviously has a great sense of humor and like it would be worse if he was auto serious true. But it's the it's that people believe him so much that's the thing is if is if it's an obvious and like somebody's lying an all right away. People like Oh that's funny. It's that it goes on for ten minutes. Although into space album gets his mom still his mom Amrullah Ghazi was going to do our wedding food for like three days because he was so convincing and that type of thing. I can't but I can only do it if I know him telling the person that I'm joking I can't. I am incapable. I can only do it if I know for fact that I will be telling this person. I'm just kidding. Sure but after you've convinced them right like right before I got to tell everyone is just kidding. I'm just making a joke. How's it going? Good how are you great? What's your name I'm Caitlyn?

I would see it as fun I would make up. Answers have been the mile high club. No but I've been to the two mile high and just make up the most random answers to possibly gotta just make it a game. Sometimes I'll like answer like okay. Let me give you a quick low down. Can we talk about something else now? Like Hey I saw a picture of this or I saw this in your. You know whatever and it's like it's just I can't steering away. Why don't you like I mean if it's just like on the dating app you can have some fun here like when someone like? What do you do you just be like? I'M A I'M A. I'm a crime fighter and they're like oh like a cop no no no. I'm more like vigilante. Like make shit up that people clearly know that you're kidding and then like no no what you do be like. I would rather like. How like a conversation in person about it? And that's intriguing him. You'RE GONNA end up finding out your flight attendant. Which was like okay? Well like daily. What what does she like? Why is it so that could be exciting but like strategies is to make something so extraordinary? So that flight attendant sound so mooring compared to it like I'm a lion Tamer I duNno. Let's go to dinner like I work. Santa Clauses Assistant. I don't like it's like when you're when online dating. I think knowing you can take a joke or say joker and that's I think that's very important to like be sarcastic and an obvious way that if they that clearly that you're joking and if they take it too literally that's a red flag but there is a part of that you're probably you've lost a little bit too much patience with it. I mean listen. I love every time I go on a date to have to do the whole song and dance about me having ten siblings. Do you really. You're lying show me a picture. What are their names like he listener names? Like you're lying you're lying. Why am I? Why would I be lying about this? Like I don't under- like like I have to do it. And it's literally the same reaction every single time but you know what what it is. Parts is young people. Ask certain things about the bachelor that just make you so irritated. How do you steer the conversation? It just it just to a certain degree. I have to be okay with if I'm interested in actually dating someone. That is a part of my life. You are a flight attendant right and so if you do end up liking guy and you actually start a relationship with someone they need to learn about you right. You'RE GONNA have to talk about what you do and I have to recognize that and it all depends on you know for me. It's so unique and others. Things have to consider but at the end of the day. If I like someone I have to be open to talking about it because a true I want someone to be able to relate to me I want someone to share my perspective on the show so if they come from a part of life that has they have a hard time relating to my experiences. I have to be open to talk about it. And how they approach that and the questions they ask and how they respond to. My answers is for me a big indication if our compatibility so to be closed off is it's you know it's it's kind of weird to be honest and I get where you're coming from but like you know again. It's it's a normal starter. It's low hanging fruit. Its first state stuff. They're just looking for things to say. I think as a society we've become worse than talking. We become worse at communicating. We're not good at asking questions. And so part of it. Is this like you know? They don't know what else asks but like a lot of it has nerves and and you know I think you being closed off makes it even more challenging but I want you to answer this question. You know like you know but it just there comes a point where I'm like. Okay like can we? Now get to know each other a little bit you know can you? Can you divert? And then they come back to it or they always go back to it. A while I think in general I think in general like messaging on a dating APP is not a place to get to know Someone Messaging Dating Aka accused. Face would show you that. Don't ask another question about like. You may have that in there but I guess my question to you is like try to get to the face to face and now we're living in Tom. I think you can still do facetime. Dates and zoom dates dates. Maybe better. Because you don't have to give your number if you don't want them to have their number but like get to the get to quicker like stop messaging with someone you've never met in person. They have no idea about inflection on text. Messaging like tone. A lot of assumptions are made via text messages with someone. You have never met so like. I don't get white people. Spend a Lotta time messaging with people. They've never met before they meet up. Whether it's a for coffee or a drink obviously or like you're in right now for like facetime resumed date like get to it quicker so that you can have like you know It's hard to ask you know deep questions over tax because like you don't know how that person is GonNa take it. You know so. Yeah you're maybe waiting too long to get there and someone that's A. That's a problem with dating APPs in general as I bolt. I've heard this from a lot of people. Both parties are like to like there are two poking like getting to making the move like do you want to get together but again now now's arguably a great time to meet. New People because like when you're on a dating APP I get it right so like Do I WANNA go out and meet this person at a restaurant and like sick down for like an awkward drank and kind of? I don't know you know or like if do I want it like if I'm in. La It's kind of like well. Do I want to drive across town? Now it's like as easy as like popping on zoomed eight and like talk him for fifteen twenty minutes and popping off like what a great time to like to rapid fire. Just kind of get to know someone on my days off. I am gone for a couple of days. I come home like I don't want to waste my time with someone that I'm not totally sure I wanNA spend time with. So you're right it is. It is a good opportunity right now. Grace this is and I just don't want you missing out on a great guy because he asked too many questions about your job. That's that would be. That'd be terrible tragedy so I just a little grace. On both ends I think would be valuable. I agree with baton. I mean it's I mean. Listen to the best conversationalist is going to ask you about your job. You know and there's always an awkwardness and like you might not be realizing it. But I'm certain as a result of this being a thing in your head like you come. You probably come across even on Texas a little more guarded and and then when when someone feels like you're not giving them anything they actually this kind of bury themselves and more of the like it becomes just like what else you know and then like this awkwardness and also like. Can I ask one last question? That is seriously important when it comes to being a flight attendant which airline because and I know that's the one I am. The only and I've told Nick knows Ben knows this but it's important and I will. I Will Peter. I've flown a lot. Okay although it's pretty special airline but but anyway I mean those are the they may have like. That might be part of them. You know that would have been my play on if I was going on a date with you. I'd be like Oh immediately. I need to know and I need to talk crap about another. She's the weirdest airline US talking to an airline nerd like she will. She was so close to diamond that she was actually considering like flying to Mississippi just to obtain diamonds. Status people do that. They're crazy or like the money so I flew southwest ones. Ginger reached out to me out of nowhere does shaming me. I'm just like it made sense like they do. They do songs it has. Its place is all. I'm saying. Anyway look at it that way. It could be humorous. It could be fun. There might be something when you're in person 'cause it would come up much different if I just asked. What airline then me being able to inflict? There's an example. Although you would say what airline that you would just hang up on you click. I'm over this but yeah I think the big takeaway here is like you're going to have to have a little bit of patients especially early on Get to the conversation or you know. Leave the messaging via dating APP as quick as possible and either get to the date or you know get to zoom or whatever And Yeah have a little grace impatience with someone. Who's trying to figure out? You know like what questions to ask because it you know dating is hard and people get nervous and it gets redundant it just does and I get it but you know we all have those frustrations but you have to power through you have to. You have to be easy to get to know. That's important in dating area. Hear Ya makes sense all right. Well thanks for calling again ANCO sweet. They're nice deserve happiness. But yeah I mean that's the thing it's just like I literally identical reactions from every single person I've ever gone on a date. Who FINDS OUT? I've had ten siblings. It's like there's this universal reaction that you must have you know it is all from the same the same. Yeah exactly and you know what like does it get redundant and Eric Fisher. But you know what you know what I also know. It's also a great conversation starter. It loosens people up like it's it makes it fun and interesting and exciting in like and I've learned to embrace that because it helps like kind of loosen up the conversation and like sometimes you need to ask the boring redundant questions to to find. The interesting kind of path of a question does a great point because our first like we went. We walked through Central Park. That was like our first not not at all date. It's just after we met but it was a half hour of talking and within that conversation we both got through the jobs too fast and then we were down to like. I had a weird time in my life where I was very lonely and watched all of junkie sex movies and then like but it got to that point our conversation within the park. That's so that's exactly right. Is that even within that time? We're able to cover so much ground person you want to get to that place where you're like. How did we start talking about this? You're like like lame topic like it's gotTa start somewhere. You know guys are inquisitive. They're asking questions. Which is which is so rare. I find so. That's she's she's one step ahead of a lot of people already comes to territory. It's not a curse. It's a blessing it is. It is a cool job. She has a cool job. It's it's just the way as when meet people they make dating so complicated now we were talking about this on my show that you can. Now they find out on dating site if the other person believes that climate change exists something. And it's like Oh my God just go out on a date with somebody. What he's all these like the specifics. Oh this is. This is blondes. Only DOT com. Now I love. I love motorcycles. Just.

I call it the old overlap. I call it being a monkey into another. Yeah Ready. Being ready is very valuable thing. You have to be ready reason. Young people get married and they get divorced. It's because they're not ready. You have to be ready to do this and make Namibia and fall off the vines and do all the lake in have all those experiences like a young monkey. Pets have fly of a vine and fall. Okay too many analogy. I shouldn't say the only reason I was able to finally leave my first relationship of seven years of breaking up one hundred times was because I met someone else right. I didn't have the maturity to just be like. This isn't right or healthy and I need to leave the situation like I needed to meet someone else that that happens all the time and that does come from just having that courage to be alone and saying notice. Something wasn't right for you. That's easier said than done being terrifying for a Lotta I loved. The other thing is. He'd never had a girlfriend. And that's the weirdest thing to me. He's opposite of what you and I are talking about. Sounds like a unique and his girlfriend. I think it's it's it's it's a it goes against the grain of social norms. Right like I don't know why that is the way it is but like when I get questions like I'm twenty two and I've never had a boyfriend girlfriend. Ny Weird. I'm like no. You're a genius like you're you know you wrong to have a boyfriend or girlfriend but you know especially now with people settling down later in life right. People just having different expectations. Then we had fifteen twenty years ago and certainly from our parents and it's Kinda like well unless you are really ready to get married. Then why are you in a relationship? Are you just there to have a boyfriend girlfriend? I don't know so like sometimes you have to ask yourself. Is it just nice to have or? Is this going somewhere? And sometimes it's just. The former and Ben was so strong with his conviction of knowing himself he would wake up in a relationship even when they live together which he did and woke up and was like this isn't right and then he would just break up with them that day. I had to find them and break up. I had this feeling my stomach. I couldn't go another day without brick. I would wait three years. I'm somewhere in between not as cut throat as I am now but it was before. I think it's worth it. How's it going? Hi I'm Jacqueline. I'm thirty three High Jacqueline thirty three. How can we help so I am a flight attendant? And it's funny because I I don't know if you can relate to this in any way because you've never talked about it on the podcast but I absolutely hate talking about my job on online dating. It always becomes this twenty questions game the same stupid questions over and over and over again and if I don't let my profession that's like the first thing that they ask me. How do I like get away with not talking about my job? Is All anyone ever wants to talk about? What do you hate about it? I think there's too many stereotypes associated with being a flight attendant which we're actually confirmed on your interview with Peter. You mentioned that one of the reasons that he lives at home is because he's gone all the time and that's actually not true for me so when people just automatically assume oh you're never home or how do you make dating work or what's your typical route all these stupid questions and it's like they all have to get through the same questions before we could actually start talking. Gotcha well eight. Listen I guess my response to that would be you. You're probably making it worse than it actually is Listen certainly I. I have lived unique situation and my experiences are on TV or something. I don't love talking about especially on dates but I also recognize that. It's something that if I am interested in someone I have to at some point. Be Able to talk about it and quite honestly their ability to have a conversation with me about it is important and my ability to see if I can connect with them because it is a big part of my life and I need to know that they can have a discussion with a discussion about it. Same goes for you or anyone or whatever job they have part of the reason why I think you're making a little bit too. Big of a deal about is because like what do you do for a living as a very normal like first date kind of conversation starter and the reality is a lot of people. Are they get anxious? They get nervous. They don't know what talk about. Like what do you do for a living is right up there with like? How's the weather And so yes you happen to have a profession that's Everyone's a thinks they know a lot about and they might even have a lot of assumptions about what they are. And you've probably developed a an annoyance over it and you've developed this kind of like irritation with having to explain the misconceptions that are at least specific to your life because again like every flight attendants life isn't the same. Just because you're a pilot or a flight attendant like your situation might be different. You know like you reference. You Know Pete my interview with Peter. Peter's never home because it sounds like he's leveraged his life in your profession as a pilot to travel were. You haven't like it's like I'll travel as a result of work but when I'm not working I'm I enjoy being at home. You know whatever so my guess is you're probably making a little bit worse than it is. I think it's something you're always going to be open to quite honestly if I was on a date you know and I went on a date with the flight attendants say we're on a date and I was like. Oh so what do you do? And you got like guarded against that question. I would be like why what what why is she like. It's the fact that they won't stop. I can try to change the subject or they like three truths and a lie. Let's let's switch over to something else. And then they always go back to it and I'm like there's so much more to me other than my job. It's it's obviously a big part of my identity but it's not all of me I'm curious. What are these questions that you're getting questions like Mile High Club? Have you ever dated a pilot? What's your typical route and like there is no typical route. It changes every single week. Or what we do on your layovers. It's like the same questions from every person it's not like people switch it up or just say like. Oh tell me a great story or something crazy that happened where it's like actual like storytelling conversation. It's all the same stupid question I don't I don't I do and I don't know if this would help. But we all have different professions here and I would say that I wasn't ever thinking that it was about my job which is a meteorologist which people automatically think whether girl which is not because I studied science so it's different than what people think. There's a lot of assumptions that people know and ask the same things but I always found. I'd say the annoyance came wasn't in what they were saying about. Just my job but it was just every time you had to go on a first date there. Are Those repeat questions I find in my head. It was like the family stuff the sibling stuff. So everybody's got like tender spa of what kind of I have to go through this again. But unfortunately I think that's just part of the game. I think you have to go through it and you have to do it and and now it's funny because we've been married six years and I'm do you want to know anything else about me. That's a that's a novel point first of all. Are you immune to turbulence. Need to know but I think I think the good news is that these guys are asking. Questions is huge complain about most women that I know there are single are on a date. A guy didn't ask one question about me talk about himself over and over so at least you're generating interest and these people are interested in your life and if you go past second or third day they'll get over it questions. The questions will be done. Then you're past that point. What's too bad is that maybe it won't work after sixteen. You gotta start over again but I think that really is every first day. I find it at work when I'm meeting New People when I'm doing interviews and I'm interviewing somebody. I tend to still feel that I date feel where you're kind of saying those same things repeating. I don't know it's part. Yeah it's small time it's just the beginning and otherwise because the and you you said it really well you said well. That's not my identity. It's only a part of my. That's a very advanced thing to say. Most people can't even get to that point knowing that about themselves. So you're already ready for like this deeper heart connection and maybe you'll find that in somebody that's also ready but I think most people as nick was saying are nervous. They're they're kind of at the shallower and depending on where they are in their dating life interesting. Yeah you'd be like going. Oh Okay have office space league exactly. And that's part of it too is like you're going to be on a date and you're going to say. I'm a flight attendant and immediately these guys like brains are leading up. Oh great like easy twenty questions or if the bat because a Lotta Times it's like what do you do? And they say something like totally data entry like. Oh so. Is that like one of my majors in college but see the ads like it's more of the online stuff. I get to the in person like I can avoid it and kind of steer the conversation elsewhere and it's not as big of a deal but it's all like the messaging back and forth like we can't get past that and then. I don't even know if I want to meet them. Because that's all we've talked about. You know what I mean. How long you talking with these guys on online dating like I would just meet them then? We'll not now but yes I mean that's the thing now's a great time to like you just want to do is zoom date and if it goes badges like hang up you know it's like there's how long are you really like. Maybe you're talking and communicating overtaxed too long before you're like making the move people get.

"It's flattering for like a split second and the other person's are wondering like why am I on a date with you. I. I don't get it. So that's the only time that really becomes an issue if you wear this on your sleeve and you start like wearing it like you start acting like you're damaged goods like because you really won't be and like now it's a tale as old. It's time is like especially people in your situation like We got married. We love each other as relationship but the the marriage itself was a bit rush because of like the situation we found ourselves in he you know. He was serving in the military. We wanted to get benefits that we couldn't get as a couple that was just engaged and so we did this right because the only difference between like what is really the difference. Like let's say you guys didn't for whatever reason need to like get benefits or like any financial security through getting marriage would have waited. You'd still be engaged right now and you would have found this out as an engaged couple and in your head it would seem differently different so like what this is. This is really those fears are really all in your head and so I think at the same time like when you said it and when you were telling us your story my heart hurt. I don't know so like my heart and I. It's not me being hurt so I think that that emotion you know Doesn't end quickly. Necessarily I think you can work through everything I think. Therapy is incredible. And if this person is worth it I think that would probably be necessary but my initial feeling was like this. I felt horrible for you in whether whether you were married or just you had been dating for six. Years doesn't matter and so once that part is you're able to clear from that I think then you really have to think about. Is this person something I want to work hard for? And do they want to work hard for me when you said he said? Oh I'll sign the papers if you want to. What was that just like an offer that seemed very? I don't know I think he knew like we've talked about it before like I told him I'm not afraid to be deployed I'M NOT GONNA put myself in a relationship. I don't WanNa be in though. He kind of knew already that like okay. This is what she's GonNa wind though he just he told me. This is not something that I want. I want to make it work. But it's like I'm not gonNA I but I agree. I mean there's something there in his response and I know we're hearing third party firm you but that just to me. It sounds like he's just putting it out there. That doesn't WANNA get divorced but like if you want to. It's almost like it's not. I don't know if this situation because I wasn't there in the room. And you guys were having this conversation right but sometimes people say things just to be able to say like well. I didn't WANNA get divorced. You know but like is he really fighting? He really doing everything he can show his contrition to show his sincerity. And how wrong? He understands that this was an actual mistake. He's not just sorry because he got caught like there's a lot of red flags here that suggests that like this is not just a mistake. He just is sorry he got caught and the only difference between that is like his sloppiness on Venom. Oh right that's a concern right like listen. People are human people make mistakes. We all have moments moments of weakness like there are situations that we can be devastating to us that we can overcome. But like everything is situational and like this. This has a lot of red flags around like how it went down Why he's sorry or why you're saying you're sorry and like well I don't want to get divorced but like if you want me to sign the paper is not the type of response would expect from someone who truly will do anything to make this work and you know again. This is based on what I'm hearing from you but yeah unless you're like leaving on information it sounds like there's there's a lot of red flags here and I would expect like Ginger said for him to want to do everything like he's be the one like. I WANNA get therapy. Maybe I I want to go get help. I want to understand why you know like all like he should just be like bring you a list of things not as like and we'll just let me know if you want to say together or not you subsitute. You substitute a lot of your needs for this person as well. And that's unfortunate I. Do you have a lot of friends that are married? There's a lot of your friends married. Now that I don't have like a good Phoenix series. It was Kinda just. That's good because that would that would be a lot more pressure. I think would be added pressure. If your friends are all married and then I'll what am I going to do on the only single girl in my group of Friends? But you're lucky you don't have that. I think I think since you did substitute so much of yourself for this guy. In these circumstances I think now is the time for you to be selfish and I think it's time for you to really take care of yourself and have tunnel vision. Don't worry about anybody else. No one else matters their opinions. Don't matter nothing matters. Except for your strength your independence and your happiness and that's something that you deserve that you should focus on that right now. I totally agree. I think that's great and then any fears you have about like I'll wife committed so much energy to this relationship with this person. He was my best friend. I don't really have a circle of friends. You are definitely young enough to like make a ton of friends. I have a lot of friends from high school and I have so many more friends that I have met in my late. Twenties and early Thirties. So it's never too late to make great friends and sometimes it's the situations that in heartache that we experienced that makes us relatable to people. You're going to connect with someone who's been in the situation. You're definitely not alone. So like put that energy out there to like create new relationships and not just like with another guy you know like it might be a great time like Ben said to be selfish and like focus on developing friendships. And then maybe if you do leave this relationship be mindful your next romantic relationship not to like drop everything else. We've we've all done that. I've done that like early in life or you have this group of friends and then you fall off the map and like a year later when it doesn't go go well you're like guys. Hey can we be friends again? Sorry you know. I've I've done that like I've had friends who've done that to me. We've all we've all done this right but it's just a it's something to learn in the future so all right well. Best of luck. Hopefully this was helpful. Yeah you're GONNA be okay. Just don't be you know I think the biggest takeaway is. Don't scare yourself into try into following your heart and follow your gut like if you. WanNa leave this relationship. You know really trust your gut like so far. I think what's really good? Is that your gut hasn't steered you wrong. Like even when you're told you something was going wrong like and don't let your fears of the unknown. Stop you from following your gut. Because it did once when he asked you like do you. WanNa know you're like I'm too afraid to find out you know but you know that's a good lesson to trust your gut and does not be afraid of the unknown. Yes definitely for sure. Okay yeah this is really encouraging so thank you. So you're GONNA be okay. I promise you'll be well you'll be great all right. Take care a great day. You just want to hug her. Know my heart but do you know the the first thing I was thinking to just the last thing I was thinking was I was about to say to her once. You're out of this you never. It's never even going to impact you like. It's not going to be a big deal in your life. No but if she stays in it it will be a big deal for a very long time and then I was like wait. I don't know what advice I would be giving their. It's so hard to give advice in these circumstance because everybody's different were zero tolerance policy. Couple I mean I don't care if there's a kiss it's over. None the divorce is there. It's present we've talked about like acting like if I had to be an acting in Florida. I would it be okay. But that's the type like we got in the depth of talking about it like that so. I think also having that conversation early which we didn't get a chance to ask. That's one thing that with Ben made things different. 'cause I was a little bit of a I was. I was not great. She was a little in other relationships. Yeah and then I met Mr Black and white and that was him and he he set it up very early. The sounds bad. The requirements of the relate but like the rules but I respected that because it was clear from the front and I respected him and I for the first time respected myself so that I wouldn't go and hurt somebody and I had hurt a couple of people and I had been in this terrible wheel of it and so I'm not blaming this guy is if he's a horrible human being but he just might be a young guy. That's doing the same thing I was doing and yet encountered to our last caller. Maybe he's going to know himself himself. I think people really appreciate the importance of upfront expectations We always go into relationships. Assuming well don't do this. Don't do that and have trust but sure but everyone is different. You have non trips relationships and you know like a lot of people especially young people operate on this like well. I didn't tell you because they don't want you to be mad right and you know fine. It's an excuse. It's kind of Bs but if you are in you know early in a relationship saying hey listen. This is what I'm about. This is what I expect for myself. I want for my partner if you don't WanNa part of that then that's fine but that it's very clear from the beginning and it just it. It creates a lot less confusion and kind of like you said ginger like when you hear someone say that with conviction about their expectations themselves relationship. That's attractive and it was also like Solo. I was more mature by then and I had gotten a lot of that. They would have four or five came to you and I said Yeah exactly. They come off so intense so overbearing which is already did come off intense and that was part of why he always talks about our breakup and so part of my broke up with him. The first time was I not only was. I not prepared in myself. 'cause I was just going through a bunch of mental stuff but I was also not sure I could stick to the rules and so I needed to be really clear with him and be like nope. I'm not ready for you and this quite yet you know I gotTa make sure that I don't WanNa go date some horrible human being for a while and then come and then once I really settled in. I realized allow this person to love. You allow the black and white to work because it can and should and I want that too and then. I was realistic about what I wanted. I wanted to be treated the same way that he wanted to be treated..

"I L I mean I just kind of think back and like I. It's great that Ginger has such a very specific comparison. I don't look back parts of my life where I was just going through stressful times and I started having. I started convincing myself of things that I was ready for or kind of was ready to Russian again. Like I'm not suggesting any way that you're rushing it but it's it's you want to be careful about making life commitments in Times. Where things are not typical. You know or or normal. It might be a little bit more stressful and and things like that so like thebenz point like express those feelings. Put It out there. Don't make secret maybe. Share it with the family and stuff like that. You know address the concerns that you do have the things that you're not uncertain about your feelings towards your partner but you are nervous about the response. Your family might have you know. Maybe this is a time to kind of warm them up to the idea. You know I did you that I spoke with my parents. I I told them is thinking of this and they were happy for me. I think the concern is more. Yeah my partners nominal say us when you when you know you know when it's there when it's something but that comes with experience that comes with life experiences and you get to that point where you you do make mistakes and you realize this is it and you have that feeling in your stomach. This is it is the worst thing we got married and was always like nervous. You're nervous I'm like no. Why are people nervous before they get married? This is awesome. It's like another day you. You shouldn't be nervous. You shouldn't be freaking. I shouldn't be thinking about cold feet or anything like that. You should be one hundred percent shore and I do feel that like I feel not confused about the actual question of this person right like I've I've loved a lot of people I I'm young but I've had a lot of relationships and I've learned a lot and I've seen a lot not work in. This is radically different. Like this is just Yeah but I also think that in some ways I'm I'm putting a little pressure on myself in this moment because I'm like when are we gonNa have this much time again to just celebrate and engagement like I'm not working forty hours a week for the first time in a long time like which I know? Sounds like kind of weird and practical but like we're we're busy people and it would be nice to just get engaged in gets like goof off for two weeks together puts it that that will be always there. I don't I I appreciate that. I don't think that's a reason to rushing engagement like but it's not fresh like I. It's something that I mean. It's something that I've wanted before. Clearing team is just not. I gave myself permission to think about doing. I mean here's the other thing that you could do and this is just now me being hopelessly romantic and because I did end in engagement a different one. I mean engagement. Engagement isn't marriage. It is serious if you're if you're talking out and you're like listen we WANNA WE WANNA have this time and I agree first and foremost with both Ben a neck. You don't have to rush into it but if you really feel strongly and you really WanNa do this. Talk about what that means and would the repercussions of ending engagement. Be Worse than breaking up some day. You know what I'm saying so so that you could at least because engagement can be for two years knows that and I did. I ended it three weeks before the marriage and so that was too late. I would not suggest that. Just just for like downpayments alone but I think that it's really helpful to if you've talked it out and you both know it's like a prenuptial engagement. Just kidding talk out like that part. But I'm saying like if she really feels strongly and she wants to get engaged and she's like at the end of this she does. I don't care what you guys say about time. You can do it and just know that it does. I would ever. I wouldn't talk ruins the whole romance and the surprise of it. All you want. If you're going to do this during quarantine and you WanNa do you WanNa do what you WanNa do it right. You talk it out. It's like it's like buying the ring with the person it's like you add all the romance if you if you are sure if this is something you feel. You're an adult. This is something you feel and you had that and this is your show about it then I I say go for it Tony. Changing everything we're saying is that you. It's the more the more we talked to you. Your your rational person you said at you with them for two years two years. We were together for six months before I propose to her. So it's it's it obviously know this person that you're with and you loved them very much. I think you know if it's something that you truly feel like they do it I say do it and and may create dude do it in like in a face my need to. I do have one one question carly it just like you mentioned that your partner as gender fluid And it sounds like there was kind of progression kind of with this person's identity are they. Do you think that they're still going through that right now? Are they still kind of learning about themselves in kind of kind of becoming more comfortable themselves or do you feel like they've kind of settled into who they are? I think it's a it's a constant evolution for a lot of us So I think very much both like I think. They're very comfortable who they endure body who they are. I think who knows ten years from now? What how they might WANNA present in how they might feel and I feel really comfortable with any direction at that. Could go even if that direction without you though. Yeah that's the only thing I want to point out to this like. That's amazing that you're comfortable with it. But that could be a like as they as they evolve and they get to know themselves better. That might change the things that they want in their life. That's I mean that's kind of a reality so that's something to be mindful love and I don't know this person or your relationship. But if they are I would say that to anyone regardless of it has to do with like how they are identified with their gender. I would say this to someone who has that all figured out but still like maybe learning about themselves or maybe their relationship with their childhood or whatever like as a person kind of becomes more comfortable with their skin in their in their skin third desires and wants Ken Change. And that's something to be mindful of. Yeah I mean I don't.

"There are people out there and they're doing extraordinary things with so little and so we can do that with our son and I guess that would be the marriage advice to if I and we can even take our own advice in doing that is keep thinking of the bike rides. Keep thinking of the ways because no matter how long this keeps going you have to keep it fresh for yourselves and not just sexually or whatever way it's more like in your lives because you know we we basically go outside to the back yard every saint same time every day. Dude you know with the kids and that's the thing is they love routine too and so we are also major creatures of habit but after a while we're going to have to shake it up a little and I would think that like I don't know I was thinking in the shower this morning. How am I going to go back to the travel? Is this going to change how I feel going forward and I think Oh my. I think it might have been the the X. experiment or the experience that I needed to tell me what no looks like because I am the constant yes person and I'm the one that's always running and running so hard that I'm missing all this stuff and now just like the Cliche of people are like your kids are so young for only some time. And I'm like wow. I got smacked in the face with an now. We'll see what happens as you're gonNA cry when you leave next guarantee it every week for my last job and I was a blubbering mess on the plane at the other. Go take a plane every Monday morning. Come back every Thursday night and I was a disaster. It be interesting. How the world reassesses priorities of of how we've adjusted. I even if we will have an impact. Yeah how my job is going forward. I think about that too. What means what. I was already kind of questioning that and this puts it all into some weird perspective because I I have more fear because I wonder will my job be the same when I renegotiated contract? We'll we'll this whole you know epic crush of an economy impact that so much so that will have different choices to make. So those are individually going on the one thing I would say is like advice to people is just expressing that that helps. Sometimes we forget to just say it out loud and I'm lucky that I have a partner. Who's the best communicator? I mean he's made me a much. Better Communicator I. One thing that has that has gotten us through this craziness is that we do in. Fact have an awesome diffuser in our bathroom. Yeah that's true that's true.

"As much as we currently miss them. We can all acknowledged that group dinners are an absolute beating. You know Sarah's going to show up late you know. Jeff is going to drink about five more drinks and everyone else and you know. There's going to be that awkward. All right how. Are we giving this up conversation at the end? Yes it's always going to end with someone biting the bullet and tossing the Chase Sapphire Card in the middle of the which means one thing and one thing only then no receipts are about to get doled out like adderall at a Bachelor party money ruins friendships families and businesses alike and even though Venema made a hell of a lot. Easier to pay your dues. There is still some social intricacies that need to get sorted out before Sarah says honestly like how dare she charge me for that. I don't even like it a mommy. The first rule though never request money if not previously discussed there's no worse person in the world and the drunk friend who regretfully buys a round of shots only two toss out a hung over requests for said shots yes then. Mo has created a world of accountability. But that doesn't wash of the stupid drunk decisions you deserve to have anxiety over. I mean yeah. I couldn't afford casts that the patrol shots were going to be fourteen dollars each at the bar either. But that's why I didn't offer to buy if you sit down for a group dinner you have to establish rules early and often take control get the credit card points. Tell everyone yeah. I'll just van Mo- Everyone Jack. There's going to be someone who orders the stake when someone else orders the Caesar. But that's just the way the cookie crumbles a group dinners next fulfill your requests within a reasonable amount of time. No one wants to be the negative. Nancy who has to send a reminder of follow up taxed. If you can't spare the thirty bucks your friend covered for you. You probably shouldn't be going out in the first place. Yes then. Mo Does have a remind feature for your slacker friends. Who Somehow hope you forget that you paid for the group but that should be seldom used. Oh Emily blacked out the night before when you sent it. Yeah you can reminder in the morning bone. It's been three days and she still hasn't paid you for the restaurant Tab. It's time to reassess. What type of person? Emily actually is next up. We have never under any circumstances out of the words. I wasn't working. There's always one in the group then. Mo has a five star rating on itunes based on over nine hundred reviews then Mos acquired by Braintree for Twenty six point two million only for braintree to be fired by pay pal for eight hundred million in two thousand thirteen so I yeah. I'm pretty sure then. Mo has the means to make sure all their customers are able to fire money off to one another. Someone saying my W-a-n-n-a wasn't working just code for. I'm hoping you forget that I owe you this money. Missing a credit card payment is one thing but defaulting on. Your friends is just downright despicable and finally be discreet. You may be buying drugs you may be paying your new secret fling for part of a dinner from the other night. You might have bought a plan. B We know this Van Manos all in a Van. Motza person he'd look similar to Chris for Malta. Santi and that's not a good thing.

Adjust your settings only so you and the other parties can see what you're sending using the cigarette needle signify that you paid someone for dinner the other night.

"If we were. GonNa talk about making friends as an adult to Corona Virus. Rut in the unwritten rules of an admission. I almost record episode this week and I don't really think I need to explain. Why yes I have more time on my hands and I've ever had in my current work from home status and all that much different from how I operate. A daily basis when the world isn't facing a global pandemic but with everything happening around us in the concentration of news and text your phone at all hours of the day. I think we can all agree that things just feel a little mantra now. I'm extremely lucky. And perhaps you're lucky to being able to work from home and truly self quarantine is an absolute blessing. Numerous people around me from my wife. My parents still have to leave for work every day and be on. The front lines is become my biggest source of anxiety throughout this entire ordeal. And truthfully it makes me feel guilty about my emotional state as this goes on my complaints if they exist only in my head seemed completely and utterly trivial. When I turn on the television see places like New York new Detroit absolutely ravaged by something that I'm still having trouble comprehending over the last week. I've only left my apartment for a few different reasons taking my dog out going to the grocery store packing up my podcast studio in picking up. Those last prescriptions from the pharmacy. Each of those trips I find myself hyper aware of my surroundings. Someone said to me quote. This is the first time I've been out in public and knew that everyone around me was thinking the exact same thing and think about it. It's true what goes to your head while you're out. Don't touch anything but if I do touch something I can't touch my face with that hand now even touch other things with that hand shine not have grabbed a grocery cart and just carry these items in my arm. How will get all the way back to my apartment? My hand covered in germs. Without affecting anything else it's a burden we're all bearing and I know from experience that we're all handling it in different ways as for me. I'm not really sure that I'm handling it all that well. I've attempted to created very strict routine for myself. Wake up when I always wake up show before making coffee. Settle into do. Some work works through lunch to maximize productivity and take part in afternoon. Peleton ride get some actual activity under my belt from there. It's an early dinner with one drink before bed. It's not much routine but it's my routine on the less but still there's a weight that I'm having trouble shaking and safe enough doing enough for those who aren't as lucky as me. What can I do to help others during this trying time while also protecting my own mental health like I said my problems are trivial? I sit in front of my laptop and I stare into a blankly this week above any other weeks started. This endeavor has been one of the most difficult weeks. I've had from a creative standpoint. The ideas aren't firing the inspiration. Isn't there the idea of not talking about corona virus responsible but I also want to be a reprieve for those who need it. Where does my social responsibility lie? When I have a platform that could actually make a difference from just before this all happened. One of my favorite writers Haley Nomin left man retailer in in a recent instagram post. She listed some takeaways from a discussion. She had the therapist about the time. We're in those takeaways in. Tld Our form. Where that everyone deal the things. I do differently that you shouldn't burn yourself with guilt if maintaining your team becomes unrealistic that you need to listen to your needs now. We can't undo the situation alone in finally that none of us will comprehend the situation tiller further removed from it during times. When I felt the way to the world pressure me over the last two weeks I returned to that post and use it as something of a blueprint. Something that reaffirms to me that it's okay to not feel okay and that go into this entire process without worry or stress would be more considering than how I'm feeling about it right now and that phrase that I muttered that it's okay to feel okay isn't original nor does it solely apply to the pandemic were facing. But it's something I have to repeat myself when I feel. I'm not doing enough when I'm behind on work when I'm trying to conjure up any creative energy during a time when I simply don't feel creative at all but once we realized that it is in fact. Okay to not feel okay. We give ourselves the opportunity to look beyond our personal and selfish emotions in actually identify with the world around us. We're in this together. So let's act.
Venmo, PayPal and Cash app share our personal info with data firms
"Okay guys you've heard me rail against then Mo and how they abuse our privacy specifically sharing some of our personal information with third party marketing firms. I don't think it's right and I talked about this a few weeks ago and was inspired to thus take a look at how some of the other apps responded as well. It's during this time of coded nineteen crisis. That many of us are ditching. The use of paper money which can gather germs and we are choosing to pay electronically peer to peer Mobile. Payments is the easiest in cleanest way better than even pulling out a credit card instead. Just open the APP. Choose the person dollar figure and click sin but what most of us don't realize. Is that when we pay our friends this way? In many instances we are giving up valuable information about ourselves that gets shared with a host. The data companies a process. That happens in the background without us. Having any choice any say so then. Mo is by far the worst abuser. There're others as well again. I worked with the security firm. Disconnect which monitored every payment I made to find out where the data wet with van Mo my user location where I lived in the person is transacted with that person's name was sent to a data firm name braise. We don't know why brace gets my information or what it does with it because neither company would tell me then. Mo also sent the contact information to a company called Pollard Dot. Io Creates animated stickers to accompany your payment and a company called pinpoint secure data collector but again then Mo wasn't the only abuser the cash up which comes from the square company. They sent my data to firms that showed up in the transaction as APP measurement dot com in mobile APP TRACKING DOT COM pay pal set my data to 'em Particle Crash Olympics in digger dot. I O. So all three sent my information without my knowledge without asking. If I approved of this let me tell you about the other companies. Would you believe that facebook pay Google pay and Apple? Cash didn't share my information with anyone. I I was pretty surprised about this because facebook and Google are so grabby about our information yet. They did not see the need to share it with third party marketing firms and of course apple is the cleanest of all of them and they didn't share with anyone Zell. Which is the banking consortium that works with Chase and Bank of America Wells Fargo and other banks? They shared my information with the security firm. But this was not concerning like the other ones. My bottom line is that facebook and Google by far the best payment experiences with Google. Pay You can actually pay someone in g mail. Nothing is easier and facebook was really easy to but now facebook and Google know who I pay when I pay how often I pay how much I pay. I'm giving them more information than they had before apple. I love the fact that they don't take my data but it only works on apple devices in if so does if if I have a friend who has a Samsung Galaxy. I can't pay that person. Patrick Jackson who is security researcher I worked with his tip is to use pay pal but only to use it on the web not to use it on the APP because it's in the APP where they share the information on the web. They

Danielle Czeslaw explains how VIN MO has changed relationships when copywriter Kelly Johnson moved to Los Angeles. She didn't tell her parents she'd be living with her boyfriend Johnson grew up in Bakersfield a couple hours drive north very conservative, very religious, my parents as well in LA. She pays the rent and her boyfriend chips in his half on ven mo- when he did it. He put it in the memo line the month, plus like the little house emoji. And that's how my mom saw her. Mom, uses Motoo Johnson was busted I shared that story with Richard krone a payments expert. That reinforces our findings the number one use case is paying rent. He estimates about thirty nine million people use then MO which is owned by PayPal. The company didn't confirm. Here's how it works. You use motive pay request money from other people on the app. It's usually linked to your Bank account every transaction has a memo line, and there are emoji for things you pay for like pizza or wine or rent, but these memos and emojis are public by default. So you can see how your friends spend money, and what they're asking others to pay for krone says that visibility can be a perk. You wanna pay it socially? So everybody knows that you're not a deadbeat and you've met your obligation pay pal. Ceo, Dan, Schulman's has been mo- is the app for generation that grew up on social media. And he says the public feed is the essence of the app here. He is on CNBC. It's really social experience. Like, you do a payment you tag it? You put it emoji next to it. And you share it with. Your friends nineteen billion dollars changed hands over the app just between October and December of last year. That's up eighty percent from the previous year. Not everyone knows others are seeing their payments. The Federal Trade Commission last year demanded that Venema make it clear to customers that these transactions are public. Then MO says, it never posts the amount of the transaction and anyone can make their payments, private private or not the app has made it easy to give cash instantly. We heard from a woman in Baltimore. She picked up a three hundred fifty dollars grocery Bill for a friend who forgot her wallet. But then mode the money immediately. A man in San Francisco told us he then MOS birthday money to his friends for round of drinks. But others notice when it's so easy to split a Bill, it becomes an expectation of definitely less generous. When I go out with my friends. Matthew, Masud studies aerospace engineering at the university of Cincinnati. He says via Skype that he went out to dinner at a restaurant that wouldn't split the check. So he just paid for. For everyone. And then he sent out Venema requests.

And don't even know it a self-described millennial offers his take he joins us in the podcast studio. Wall Street Journal reporter, Kevin McAllister. Welcome. Thank you. So the millennial thing is funny. It's it's this stamp placed on conversations all the time. But in this case, it's super relevant. I'm one too. I'm I'm more toward the tail end of the bracket on the old kind. But it's definitely confusing for me, and this culture shift to digital seems. You know, it seems like maybe if anyone can walk us through it. It's this generation. Yeah. I think it's a shift in culture, and for someone like me, it's an especially even people that might be younger than me. I it hasn't necessarily been a transformation as much as it has been. A, you know, an entirely new way of dealing with money and dealing with technology being that you grew up with it rather than transitioned into using it, right? You know, because it's such a layered nuanced situation that we all find ourselves in now. Right because there's etiquette that you have to learn the tech is rather new, and we're still feeling it out. What are you coming across in your reporting? Well, thought one of the most interesting ones is the charge function -ality that apps like van us, which is really at the at the core, an invoice something that was before limited to functionality to the company might have or something that you employ service on might be able to to charge you for something. But now, it's one friend to another saying, hey, give me this much money. And here's a push notification about it instead of just a casual conversation, a reminder, something like that. So it makes money even more clinical than it necessarily needs to be between friends if you are sending someone's. Digital notification basically tapping them on the shoulder over and over again via their phone which feels different than just saying. Hey, you owe me five bucks you on me. Ten bucks? Right. And then there's the instantaneous nature of it. All does that kind of take things to another level. The fact that everything is just so instantaneous now. Yeah. Well, one of the things that I pointed out in in the column, I recently wrote was that before if you owed somebody say five dollars ten dollars. They would have to go to the m get twenty bucks out break twenty. And then give you a Bill back here. I it's, you know, it's such an instantaneous process of being able to be a couple clicks away that I think not everyone is on the same wavelength as far as how much time can pass between your initial request and the fulfilment there in the skew time situation is very interesting. Yeah. And I think that that different generations view it differently. But I don't think it's a gap. Limited generational. I just think it's it's. Exposure to technology and hundred percents ordering previous thoughts about different technology over to this new device and us not really having this common. Standard of how to deal with a brand new app or a brand new paying someone or brand new of communicate. It's so true. And it's still in motion at this point too. So even if we do figure it out it's a matter of just keeping up with the new tech keeps coming out faster and quicker and making it even more confusing. Yeah. Absolutely. I I'm sure people again, if they read my column, and I I know this fact based on my inbox the past week, people definitely think that that my approach to it is wrong. And and I'm sure to a lot of people. It is interesting. So what kind of pushback are you getting well, I think that there's a, you know, again, sort of a generational divide. If you will between, you know, seeing how certain people deal with money that a lot of these problems could be solved with cash was one of the number one responses that I got, but the idea is you know, that I. I don't always have cash on me. And and this makes it simpler, and maybe to an extent safer. But I mean that I think is still interpretation. But you know, I think I think the pushback is that if you're owed money, you should use the tool to get your money back to make sure that you're not actually getting ripped off by your friends. And you know, I think that that squabbling about money to is is something that I got feedback about that. You know, you shouldn't be doing it at all they shouldn't be your friends, but at the same time if you're out if you're out with people acquaintances friends strangers, even you know money is such a social thing and spending money as such social thing. But talking about it is seemingly off limits at least among some of the circles that I'm with that's interesting. So in order to stay let's say above board in this new digital world. Can you leave us with some, you know, less? I mean, some tips that can maybe just get us to a place. That's a little less awkward. I can certainly try. Again, I try not to use the charge functionality. Because I think it adds, you know, that that level of formality to the kind of transaction that you're really trying to have. And if you can deal with things outside of the world of the app, and then poured it into the actual digital experience. You get the benefits of of the non digital experience and the ease of functionality that an app provides. I like that let's end on that note. Kevin mcallister. Thank you so much. I so much Ravin me. That's for the tech news briefing reporting from the newsroom in New York. I'm Tanya boost does thanks for listening.
