It's more than just swiping left and right, surely?

In this episode, Matt and Dan are joined by guest contributors Justin Myers and Emilie Lavinia to discuss the perils, joys and future of dating as a man.

We look deeper into the root causes of those tricky dating experiences and why they might be struggling past that first drink - or indeed, not happening at all.

Join us for Part 1 where we kick off the discussion with some hard truths and sympathetic solutions.

Part 2 coming soon!
