Ep. 22 - school Days

On episode 22 - school Days, Jackie James from Dallas fills in as our guest host, and we go back to our dating experiences in high school and college.

Young adulthood is formative, to say the least, and nowhere is dating and love more chaotic than in high school and in college. The times are constantly changing but school is still filled with social food chains, popularity, drama, and teen angst. How different are relationships and dating in jr, high and high school versus college? How does dating and sex in high school shape our romantic relationships in college and beyond?

Jackie starts putting himself out there again. He gets out of his comfort zone with a new attitude and tries out new dating behaviors. Brooklyn shares on taking and giving over control in the bedroom on his couple's therapy update.

Maxwell meets a horny guy who can't follow directions, has a rock climbing date with an awesome guy and learns about polycule relationships, and even has a date planned with a cutie after this episode.

Learning about polycule relationships reminded Maxwell of the Marie Curie Actions 2008 "Chemical Party."

Guest: Our own Beau Alexander steps in as our guest dating guru on short notice.

Dating Book/Article Review: "How Dating Changes Between High School & College, Because They’re Nothing Alike” by Jamie Kravitz from Elite Daily.

Call to Action: High school is a microcosm of cliques, social rules that must be followed, popularity, drama, and lots of angst. In that, we must learn to maneuver our hormones, desires, and emotions. First loves, crushes, and relationships seem so intense like they will Olast forever. Some of us peak in High School. Others cannot wait until the next phase when we break out into college free of who we were and able to start new. We get to college and our world suddenly gets bigger and it seems like the possibilities are endless when it comes to dating, sex, and relationships. Can we look back at both high school and college as both worthy of appreciation and lessons to be learned? Do we remain nostalgic or cursing the past which prevents us from moving forward to richer and more fulfilling relationships? The choice is yours.
