OPW - Oct 16 - Unqualified is created and hosted by actress Anna Faris. The podcast consists of interviews with celebrities, followed by phone-calls to listeners asking for relationships and other advice. In this episode, Anna interviews actress Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives, Telenovela, Overboard). They talk about working together on Overboard, how Eva became a director, empowering women in the entertainment industry and more. Later she is joined once again by online dating expert Mark Brooks to answer questions and offer advice on how to approach the world of Internet dating.
Anna: How shall I proceed in the difficult New York City dating market?
Mark: I recommend video dates. There is no reason to go on a real world date now. Video dates don't lie. And it's OK to spend some time on video within the app.
Anna: Would you suggest people go just on one dating app?
Mark: No, it's good to be on multiple apps (2 or 3 apps). There are so many different dating apps with so many different vibes, just like bars. So find which bar suits you.
Mark: Tappity tap is not natural, it's inhuman to be typing. My advice is to get on a video date earlier. The trick is to have more video dates and less tappity tap. It is more fulfilling for the soul.
Anna: Do you have any final advice?
Mark: Approach each date with the goal of making the other person smile. At least you'll be victorious on every date. Change your mindset, and you'll change your experience.
