Ep. 30 - Duped Part 1

On the Season 2 Finale, Episode 30 - Duped Part 1, Max, Beau, and Brooklyn open up on dating someone they thought they knew who turned out to be someone else.

You know everything about me, and I know everything about you. We share our lives together and grow together. We like to think that we know the person we are with until we don’t. What does one do when everything we thought we knew may have been a lie?

Dating, sex, and relationships abound with our terrific trio as we wrap up season two! Brooklyn prepares for a quiet holiday experience with his boyfriend as they adjust for a quieter Christmas together at their new home. Beau has multiple dating offers and decides on a lovely woman who supports his healthy and spiritual lifestyle.

When it rains, it pours! Maxwell finally gets hit on by two rock climbers but does his dream come true? Max gets stood up twice on the same day by the same guy. Later he gets to meet up again with the daddy who wants a daddy. Finally, Max meets a guy who is mutually crazy about him and lives a few hours away.

We introduce our new sound tech Austin Watson from Dallas who is joining the show on the upcoming third season in 2021.

"...I'm not the one to really jump into a relationship anyway, but for it not being too serious, it's kinda serious." -Beau Alexander

"He said, I just want to let you know what I was his partner at the time and you were the other guy." -Maxwell Anders

Guest: We reflect on an amazing year for us personally and as a show. We not only moved over to a new podcast host and sponsor but our listenership has surged, and we are excited to be with you for each episode. We take turns asking the group questions regarding Season 2.

Call to Action: Do we ever really know someone? Can I ever trust anyone again? These are some of the questions that we ask ourselves once we been lied to, hurt, and have experienced trauma. Do we choose to shelter in place and decide there is just too much at stake to trust anyone again? Or do we pick ourselves up and realize that the more we open ourselves up to love and intimacy, the more we are likely to gain in the way of experience, knowledge, self-love, and acceptance. The choice is yours.

Episode Quote:

Some people are real, some people are good, some people are fake and some people are real good at being fake - Unknown

Shout Out: Season Two would not have been possible with you our listeners. You bring us along to your commute, home, workplace, and gyms when you listen to our show and for that we thank you. I would like to thank Beau and Brooklyn for all their hard work and dedication and for putting up with my hot yet crazy ass.

We also would like to give a shout out to all of our guest dating gurus who shared their lives and stories on the show. I would also like to give a shout-out to Hunter Nelson my rock climbing coach trainer and friend at Summit Gyms in Dallas and to my loving Sponsor who guides by example and experience.
