AA 009: Drinking Our Way Through Tinder

In this episode, we’re discussing dating apps. Specifically, TINDER. We share some stories we’ve heard from our friends as well as a few that YOU GUYS sent in about both good and bad Tinder experiences.

We decided we needed to test out the app for ourselves, so you’ll get to join us as we create profiles and try to find matches! Bear with us as we try to figure this out… In the end, we talk about how dating apps make us feel, if we think they should be the norm, and what effects they have on our generation.

AA 007: How to Spot a Fuckboy, Ghosting, & Are Fuckgirls a Thing?

On this week’s episode, we’re talking about shady guys and girls. Specifically, FUCKBOYS. We have a very special guest this week to help us out… Kailyn’s boyfriend, Garrett! We thought we could use a male’s perspective on this one. Who else would be better to help us understand fuckboys than a former fuckboy himself? Garrett helps us determine how to spot a fuckboy and why guys do the things they do.

After we interrogate Garrett for a few minutes, we move on to answering your questions. We talk about feeling guilty after dealing with a fuckboy and what to do when someone ghosts you. We also discuss the need for the term “Fuckgirl” – let’s be real, there’s a lot of ’em.

AA 006: The Cure for Dependence

In this episode, we’re talking about DEPENDENT people. We answer all of your questions about how to deal with friends who constantly need validation, people who always need to have a significant other, and overly dependent significant others.

We also talk about what it’s like when you’re too independent and how you can learn to ask for help when you need it. Sometimes you just gotta let yo’ pride go for a sec.

We discuss the importance of learning to be independent and what causes dependence in the first place. Why are all these dependent people so needy?!

AA 003: Body Image: When Diet and Fitness Become Toxic

In this episode, we’re talking BODY IMAGE. It can be difficult to maintain a positive body image when we are constantly suffocated by ideas perpetuated through social media, magazines, television, and the Internet, especially as young adults. We also address the lies fed to us by the diet and fitness industry and the unattainable beauty standards that society promotes. We explain how we ground ourselves in a society that constantly tells us we’re not good enough, and we discuss the importance of being honest with yourself about your goals.

We would love to hear your experiences and feelings about this topic. Please send in any comments/questions/thoughts you have by emailing actuallyadultish.com or filling out our “Submit a Topic” form at actuallyadultish.com. Also feel free to tweet us (@actuallyadult)!

AA 002: The Bachelorette, Reality TV, and 90s Girl Bands

In this episode of Actually Adultish, we scroll through our social media feeds and comment on the shit we see. However, our feeds were a little boring today, so we quickly moved on and had an in-depth discussion of this season of the Bachelorette. The Bachelorette is one of our favorite shows – we’re completely obsessed. We discuss who our favorite and least favorite cast members are, and we talk about how much we love Jojo. She’s the best.

We then go on to talk about other reality television shows we adore, and things get a little nostalgic. America’s Next Top Model and American Idol are some of our all-time faves. Finally, we wrap it up with some love for the Spice Girls. Gotta love the 90s!

Let us know your thoughts – we’re dying to know any and all opinions you have about this season of the Bachelorette. Especially opinions about CHAD. Tell us what other reality TV shows you’re into, and who your favorite Spice Girl was. This is crucial.

AA 001: College Relationships – Do I Stay or Do I Go?

Can we pop some champagne bottles and make it rain (with confetti)?! We are so excited to have our very first podcast episode up! Relationships are one of our very favorite topics to discuss.  We’ve had our fair share of boyfriends in different time zones, boyfriends actin’ shady, and boyfriends who act like… boys.

A special thank you to everyone who submitted questions! We hope we gave you enough info to help you tackle your current and future relationship dilemmas.

One of the main questions discussed in this episode was whether to continue or end relationships pre and post college. Basically, we’re with Destiny’s Child on this one. All you independent women should NOT make your career plans around your SO. You’ve busted your ass to get that degree, and you owe it to yourself to follow YOUR dreams.

Next we tackle the issue of starting off college in a relationship. Are you missing out? Is it too stressful figuring out how to maintain your relationship while also adjusting to college life? How does your partner feel? These are all things to consider when bringing up the topic with your BF or GF. We give our best tips on addressing the elephant in the room so you’ll be able to handle it like a pro.

We also discuss what the dating scene is REALLY like in college – a.k.a hooking up. Special thanks to Tinder which helps the busy college student get some convenient action through the quick swipe of your finger. We don’t have Tinder, but maybe in another episode we’ll make one just for kicks.

We hope you enjoy our first episode, and we would love to hear back from you guys! In our next episode, we’ll be discussing body image, so tweet us (@actuallyadult) or email us (actuallyadultish@gmail.com) your comments/questions on body image or any other topic!
