You don't want to be that old creepy dude who's single and hitting on women. It's gross. - Jono Zalay
Soberland's latest episode, "Bumble Keeps Me Humble," is a hilarious take on the challenges of love and dating apps while staying sober. Host Lindsay Cowan and comedian Jono Zalay share their experiences with the world of dating and relationships, from the pros and cons of dating apps to sobriety deal-breakers and the importance of being yourself on dates. They also discuss the benefits of therapy for personal growth, and the dangers of becoming that "old creepy dude" who's single and hitting on women.
As Jono and Lindsay reveal, dating apps can be both a blessing and a curse when you're sober. While they provide a convenient way to meet new people, they can also be a time-consuming and disappointing experience. Lindsay admits to having swiped right on people just for their dogs, while Jono shares his thoughts on the lack of diversity on dating apps. However, both agree that being honest about your sobriety is crucial when it comes to finding a compatible partner.
The duo also discuss their personal deal-breakers when it comes to dating while sober. For Jono, it's a turnoff when men dominate financially in relationships, while Lindsay refuses to date anyone who has a problem with her sobriety. They also touch on the importance of being yourself on dates, rather than pretending to be someone you're not.
Finally, Jono and Lindsay delve into the benefits of therapy for personal growth and the dangers of emotional repression. They share their experiences with therapy and how it has helped them to become more self-aware and confident in their relationships. As Jono puts it, "you don't want to be that old creepy dude who's single and hitting on women. It's gross."
