Date Like Your Grandma

22:42 – 

Ask your grandma how she met your grandpa. Odds are, he was her brother’s friend or her neighbor or schoolmate. Meeting in person used to be the norm — but now, some say the number of couples who meet online is surpassing grandma’s method. Jake, Matt and Kathryn all managed to meet their significant others in person — through parents, work trips and puppy shopping. How did it happen? Hear their stories and get practical tips for finding a date via your everyday interactions and connections.

Deb DeArmond has studied and surveyed in-laws (and is one herself), and offers both some horror stories and frank advice on choosing good in-laws, being a good in-law (son or daughter) and showing grace to the family you might join someday.
