How come nobody has a ‘meet cute’ anymore?
Gone it seems are the days of accidentally brushing a stranger’s hand while you both reach for the single copy of the same book at the library, only to lock eyes and “just know.” Algorithms have replaced butterflies. And swiping right so rarely leads to starry eyes. In this episode, Katelyn and Roxy ask: is it even possible to meet someone in real life anymore?
Enter: Heather Thompson Day, the “queen of matchmaking,” who weighs in with some much needed optimism and more than a few surprising stats. And Katelyn and Roxy play a round of their own matchmaking game.
