Dating can (and does) frequently cause anxious thoughts and feelings, so Ali & Roark start the multi-episode series by discussing some tried-and-true anxiety management strategies they use.
Then, they discuss the situations leading up to a first date that make listeners anxious ranging from wondering if their date will find them attractive to stressing about finding a parking spot.
First, Ali is on vacation again (can you believe it!), and Roark seeks her advice on making birthday plans with the Classmate. As a note, Roark’s audio is not up to our usual standard, sorry about that!
