“U Up?”

January 24, 2019 at 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm


Need help with your dating-app profile? Wondering how to respond to texts from your ex? At this appearance, Jordana Abraham and Jared Freid—hosts of a popular relationship-advice podcast—will offer assistance to audience members. We asked them for guidance on a particularly thorny subject: dating in DC right now.
Can you stalk app matches before a date?
“You can do a light stalk,” says Abraham, but “you want to leave something to be uncovered about the person.” A quick Facebook snoop is okay, for example, but checking to see which political campaigns he or she has donated to is taking it too far.

What should you do if a date leans toward the other party?
Try to resist immediately storming out of the bar. If you had enough in common to agree to a date in the first place, give the person a chance. “Living a life where you only meet people just like you is not that interesting,” Freid says.

How about if you disagree with a new flame’s family?
If you’re an MSNBC fanatic and you discover you’re dating someone whose parents have a Tucker Carlson shrine, don’t panic. Says Freid: “You have more in common with people [on the other side] than you want to believe.”
