Betches & Married to Your Job
BETCHES & MARRIED TO YOUR JOB
We’re all out here striving and thriving in different ways. So today, I thought I’d address how to date when you are also focused on another big goal- whether that be with school, building your career, launching a business, whatever it is I’m here to support you on your journey to find love.
Today’s guest, Jordana Abraham, is the co-founder of a multimedia brand called Betches and recent Forbes 30 under 30 entrepreneur, about how she built her brand and met her man all at the same time.
But first, there’s some controversy we need to address:
DATING DISH (2:06)
(2:06) The Bachelor proves again that it’s really bad at matchmaking – Don’t come for me Bach Nation!
In interracial relationships we are afraid to say the wrong thing that we retreat from having the tough conversations. Don’t fall for the fantasy – don’t get caught up in the story. It’s important to ask the deeper questions early on.
(8:13) How Tinder is making dating apps safer
Tinder’s new background check feature aims to create a safer online dating environment. While safety is important, you may be more likely to get hurt by factors that won’t show up in a background check. Dating fraud is not the big problem we make it out to be – the rise in dating fraud isn’t even proportional to the rise in online dating but the rise in people hiding their true selves.

DEAR DAMONA (41:53)
Submit your questions Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook and hear our answers live on the show! Here’s what our listeners asked about this week:
- Maryanne (Google Voice): Hi Demona, good morning. My name is Maryanne. I live in Los Angeles. I’m a 44 year old independent mother of a teenager business owner. Spiritually evolved definitely knows what I’m looking for and putting myself out there and with an open heart but here is my question. So I have a penis size requirement. You have to be a particular size to ride this ride home. And I don’t know if I’m necessarily a size queen, but I’ve had a baby that’s pretty large. So it needs to be like God. I don’t know if I need to say the number but a little larger than maybe the average. So, how do I even Bring that up in a conversation. I never have I think I did once but it did not go out. So what happens is I dated for a little bit, you know, we play the song doctor and so each other our private parts and then I kind of know because I am a 44 year-old woman if it’s going to work or not. So how do I Broach that or do I just keep looking and checking out the package? And then also I’m being sexually evolved. I do like to invite people into my place X clay and then how do I bring that and when you know, I definitely would prefer to be in a committed loving relationship where it feels safe and trusting to do that with my partner. So little food for thought that because this is all new and I am now embracing my very all of my all of my stuff all of me, and I just want someone else to also let me know your thoughts. Thanks, love. Bye.
