Episode 5: I Woke Up Like This
It’s A Match is a radio show about dating in the app age. This is Episode 5: I Woke Up Like This.
“You’re a feminist and you’re on Tinder!?”
This week we spoke about how to navigate online dating spaces as a feminist. We also discussed how important it is to respect women in online dating, just as much as it is in real life.
*Content warning: this episode contains discussion of mature themes including sex. There is also some swearing*
Lindsey has been on 23 Tinder dates, 2 OK Cupid dates, 2 Happn dates and 2 Bumble dates. She’s still swiping.
Anna went on her first Tinder date a few months ago and now, he’s her boyfriend. It’s pretty unfair.
They’re the opposite ends of the dating spectrum.
Join them as they navigate the rights and lefts of online dating: terrible dates, awful messages, unsolicited dick pics and every now and then, a match that doesn’t suck.
