Are you still friends with a former lover while being in a new relationship? Have you guys settled in your new roles or has that ex crossed the line a couple times? Do they still reminiscence about the past? Do they talk about how things could have been different? Do they have something to say about your current relationship? What does your current partner think about this? Do they even now this side commentary is going on? "What happens in the past, stays in the past". Not always as it seems. How do you even begin to deal with a situation like this? We had to get some help on this one as Miss April Speaks lends her sage words on the issue. Tune in to see what she says!
Well, well, well... it's that time of year again! A year of reflecting and getting ready for the new year. Jenn & I makes our wish list for 2018 and also we take a look back to see if we kept our promises from 2017 as well. Do you keep your resolutions or just toss them to the wind once the ball drops? Tune in to see what we have to say about you keeping up with your list! 
From Ansari to "I'm Sorry", there's been a range of the good, the bad, and the ugly pertaining to the #MeToo Movement. The one thing lacking is sort of a "rules and regulations" to the conversation. How do we date in a #metoo world? How do we touch/make love to a suitor? Can we still mimic what they do in the movies or is that outdated? Can a person be "too" careful enough to ruin the mood? No one wants to make anyone uncomfortable so how do we go about interacting with someone in a romatic manner? We got a returning guest to hopefully help us make sense of this new world we live in. Tune in to see what we came up with!
On Episode 22, we talked about the general tropes of the topic of interracial relationships, but in this episode we go deeper. A video recently made its way across the internet and launched a hot debate all across the World Wide Web and even made its way onto network TV for further debating. Can a white woman ever understand the struggles of her black man? It was a great question posed, but an even greater question to try to answer. On the show is a couple who are no strangers to the topic of race, identity and struggle. It was great listening to their stories and informing us that life, especially for an interracial couple, is anything but just black & white. 
Are you into bear-skin rugs? How about a 12 foot martini glass hot tub? Do you want more of a 70s-esque Austin Power's 70s Shag room? Or a luxury pent house suite? Air Bnb? Bed n Breakfast? Or forego staying inside all together and be on the sands of an island? Where exactly is the new hot spot to take your significant other to? Where does the romance happen nowadays? Jenn & I discuss, but only after a LENGTHY discussion about my love life. Hop in the bed and take a listen!
There's something strange... in your instant messenger... and it don't look good.... what you gonna do? GO GHOSTING!!! That's right... the new wave of "new phone, who dis?" is "ghosting"! What exactly IS ghosting and why is it the go to method of avoiding awkward situations or confrontations in dating, relationships, etc? Let's get into bed and have this much needed pillow talk.
Join us this week as we discuss the exciting and yet pretty fucking crazy concept of Gaslighting. Where did it come from? Is it happening to me? Have I ever done it?  , and of course How to avoid it!!  If you still are not sure what it is.. We tell you some movies that were clear indicators of Gaslighting .So let us know where you stand on the topic.. Have you been gaslit before? Did you do it to someone and didn't realize? Join the convo below!! 
Have you ever met a person that made you think "I'm really feeling this person, we have such great chemistry but we really don't hold the same values or goals"? Or met someone that you both of your futures lined up perfectly, both share the mindset but they were just "okay" and didn't make your heart go flutter or create a spark inside you? Well what do you do in this situation? Which do you go for? The chemistry based relationship or the compatibility one? You might think that one of these answers is obvious, but it isn't as easy as you think. Listen in and see what Jenn & I had to say about it!
Oh Lordy, WELP... this episode Jenn and I talk about how religion had an effect on our respective relationships. Does the Most High have a right to "God-block" your courting of your significant other or do you welcome Him (or Her) in your loving arms to bless the union? Does religion have a say in your relationship? Have you ever dated a religious person? How did it go? Email us at bedlovebeyond@gmail.com and tell us. Your story may be featured in our next ep!
Pros / Cons of “You’re the Worst” the TV show, why do we like/love things that are bad for us? What shows got us hooked on relationships?
Don't you just hate it when you're really falling for someone and it turns out that they're married? No? Just us? Well.. not really conisdering there's a growing number of particpants that this has happened to! What's the deal? Are people not that happy in their relationships? Or is it just being able to have your cake and eating it too? Another full house and a DOOZY of a story that will have you screaming like I did! Tune in!
"Why don't they like me?" "Why do I keep losing partners?" "Why can't we go futher?" "Aren't I worth it?" are all questions that have crossed our minds one point or another during our dating career. All familiar questions we ask ourselves to find out if there's anything "wrong" with us. Whether there is or not is another topic, but the point is, are we really not up to snuff for our partners or are we fooling ourselves into thinking as such? Are we actually good enough and this lull is just a "mind-over-matter" thing or are we delusional and we really need to get some work done internally? Tune in and see what Jennifer & I have to say!
In this episode of BLB we discuss whether or not it's okay to ask someone you are dating to change something about themselves? Whether it be weight , clothes, the style of hair, too much or not enough make-up, is it ever okay to ask someone to change?  Are these things deal breakers ? Is weight the only taboo topic? Is it okay to say" Hey babe, you've gained a few pounds, get on that"!? We discuss healthy ways to have these conversations.   We all know no one is perfect , but how far have you gone to try and change your partner or what have they asked you to change? What did you think about that ?? Join in the conversation below ! 
How much is sex important to you? To some, it's MONUMENTAL. To others a big MEH. Experts say sex is important in a relationship. Others say SCREW the experts (no pun intended). What do you when confronted with the fact someone you're newly dating tells you they're celibate? Do you stay or skidaddle? What do you if you're in the middle of a relationship and your partner decides that they want to become celibate? Do you join in or jump off at the next exit? Waiting til marriage to some sounds wonderful, but others don't know when that big day is - so is it worth the wait, to wait? Tune in to see what we think about this! 
In this episode we discuss whether love at first sight is real or just a myth?? We run down our daily dish and catch up with you guys!.. Have you ever had at first sight??  Join us and tell us below!! 
So you finally met your bestie's Boo and he or she is HORRIBLE!!  Now what?  Or Your Best friend tells you that even though you think you've found Mr. Right , they feel like perhaps he's Mr. Right Now..  How do we handle these situations? Are we to choose? Join Us this week as we dive in to this topic. How have you handled the situation? Tell us your thoughts and stories below! 
“Anybody can become angry – that is easy, but to be angry with the right person and to the right time and for the right purpose, and in the right way – that is not so easy” – Aristotle, 384 B.C.  It's hard to curb your anger when you just want to blurt out your feelings to someone as soon as they cross you.  But that rage not only is bad for the relationship, but bad for your health. Join us as Dr. Un explains how to "not speak" in order to get our point across to one another. Also he goes through the minutiae of what our body goes through when we have these explosive outbursts and how these moments can have negative health effects on us.
Ahhh, the Millennial. What is there to say that hasn't already been said about this generation of people? Even when we've exhausted ourselves, there's always one more opinion we can't wait to share about how we feel about them. Well, today's different. Today, one of their own has PLENTY to say and tries to school us on how we (the old foagies) fare in Love and how we're doing it WRONG. Hoo boy! You got to listen in and see how this goes down. 
We always try and see the good in people and try not to judge people on the chapter we walked in on in their lives. For the most part, it goes well, but sometimes a person's past no longer wants to stay in the past causing a conversation to be had. Depending on what the issue was (or is), do you stay with that person through thick or thin regardless of the issue? Or do you feel you have the right to walk away and be like "nah, I'm good?" Would you feel guilty or feel you are in your right? Tune in and see what we think! 
Ladies, did someone ever slide in your DM and impress you so much that you just HAD to look at their page? Did you ever do a double take because of what was posted? They were *this close* to getting your number until you saw a chick with her face down ass up on his page. Fellas, you were about to ask for her digits before you saw that their whole wall was about God? Or Feminism? Do these things really raise flags in our eyes or are we just too judgmental? Jennifer and I discuss the in's and outs of this hypothetical. Take a listen, will you? 
Today’s episode is about dating people that are younger than you. Is it good?  Is it Bad? Does it depend on certain circumstances? Listen to us delve into this funny, but serious, relevant, somewhat important topic! Join us below in the conversation!  Have you dated someone younger than you? How old were you and they at the time? How was the experience?  
Would you date someone who was a Felon, Heavily tattooed, has dreads, a physical handicap or maybe a midget? What about Mental illness, Divorced, a person who had an abortion or told you they asked someone to get an abortion. We dive in to these topics and discuss what sometimes society views as a Stigmata. Are any of these for you? What are yours?  Should we judge? Join in on the conversation!   
With dating, especially at the beginning, people tend to rush through the pleasantries and only want get to the "good" part. Not pointing fingers or anything, sex is AWESOME, but is that really the thing we should be focusing on? What happened to being the Tortoise instead of the Hare? What about the slow build? I'm not even talking about foreplay (although that's nice too!). What happened to getting to know a person first? Getting to know the Ins and Outs of them as opposed to just going in and out of them? There are other ways of getting to know a person before you do the horizontal polka. That's where our special guest steps in. Yanni Brown, relationship educator, lets us know the many ways of being intimate before we even get take our clothes off. 
There's this meme that reads "Sometimes holding on does more damage than letting go". In this episode we explore that statement and try to answer why we hold on to the things that have hurt us. What are we trying to prove? What exactly can't we get over? Join us as we attempt to let go and move on mentally, spiritually, and physically from things that can hold us back from becoming better people.
Do 10s only go with 10s, 9s only go with 9s… or can love conquer the numerical odds?
