Pathetically Passive Dating Tactics

Guests: Madison Crist, Brandon Rall and Jake Roberson

[21:41] - 

In case your current relationship doesn't work out, is it OK to "cushion" (keep a "side" guy or girl in the picture)? What about "breadcrumbing" (stringing along someone you're not interested in) in case your feelings change someday? Have you ever been "ghosted" (had someone suddenly stop talking to you without an explanation)? Our panel tells stories of relationship sabotage and why these practices might be ruining our dating lives.

How to Choose a Spouse

Guests: Dr. Ernie Baker

[19:17] - 

Whatever terms you use to describe relationships, one thing is sure: Dating is hard. Pastor and professor Dr. Ernie Baker gives us advice on what to look for in a potential spouse from his book "Marry Wisely, Marry Well." Lisa also grills Dr. Baker on why he once drove 700 miles overnight (hint: a girl was involved), and what happened when his fiancee had another guy enthusiastically chasing her.
