How do you build a relationship with someone who saved your life? In the final episode of Season 2, Meredith Goldstein shares stories of love that flowered in moments of stress and danger.

If you’re dating, it’s a thing you hear a lot: A good way to meet someone is to take a class or join a social activity. Like playing on a co-ed volleyball team. Taking a sourdough bread-making class. Signing up for pottery. But does it work? In Episode 9, Meredith Goldstein looks at whether activities, classes, and clubs can lead you to love. Plus, something good happens to Erin.

To find a partner, sometimes you’ve just gotta grab the moment. This is something Meredith Goldstein knows all too well. Because that guy she liked in college? Matt Dorfman? Well, she missed her chance. In Episode 8, Meredith explores bravery and regret, and she tells the story of one British photographer who did act on her romantic impulse.

Meeting someone takes work, time, and commitment. It can also take money. Sometimes a lot. In Episode 7, Meredith Goldstein explores what we spend on dating and why. She talks to Lindsey Stanberry, of Refinery29’s “Money Diaries,” and tells the story of a woman who spent serious money on a professional matchmaker. Plus, Erin makes a cameo on The Science of Happiness podcast. Email us at email@example.com.
Everybody wants a meet-cute story. It’s like we’ve all watched so many rom-coms that anything less feels like a letdown. But what does a meet-cute truly mean to a relationship? Meredith Goldstein explores this question by revisiting the story of how her parents met. Also in the episode, Meredith tires quickly of swiping, but Erin does not — and gets rewarded. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Trust. Intimacy. Affection. They’re all key ingredients to a healthy romantic relationship. But what happens when pain, trauma, and memory get in the way? In Episode Five, Meredith Goldstein explores the unique challenges of trying to find love and connection after a difficult past. Also, Erin has a promising date and Meredith starts swiping for the first time in her life. Email us at email@example.com.
