OPW - Oct 3 - 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 actor Adam DeVine (Workaholicsm, Modern Family) to talk about the dangers of filming his new show Bad Ideas. Later, Anna is joined by online dating expert Mark Brooks to answer questions about online dating.
Anna: How do you truly get to know somebody online?
Mark: Dating apps are a great way to get the tough questions out of the way right up front. Dating takes practise, you gotta know what some of the rules are.
Anna: How can you find safety in the online dating world?
Mark: There is some reality of Internet dating which is very important to understand - people fib, usually about age, height and weight. Some of the dating platforms offer background checks and authentication. That's where the industry is going next. Online daters should also use video to get a better sense of people.
Anna: What is this fear of meeting in real life?
Mark: The best antidote is to go out on 20 dates (video dates these days... ) you will get a sense of yourself and the other person, and build up the skills of dating.
Anna: What dating apps would you recommend?
Mark: There is a way to help people warm up to video dating. I recommend checking out MeetMe. You don't even need to do a video date. You can watch other people video-date. It's fun to watch and you can give them advice and then vote if you think the couple should take it further.
