Natasha and her amazing array of guests break down relevant topics from “How to Slide in Her DM” to “Love Addiction,” “Can Friends With Benefits Really Work?” to “Embracing Being Single,” and there’s no annoying advice or formulas given here. Kinda Dating explores one dating topic at a time, with experienced, unique points of view, and tries to answer the proverbial question: why the f**k do we all have commitment issues?!
Dating influencer, comedian, and former commitment-phobe, Natasha Chandel, and influential guests navigate the modern dating world and try to figure out: why the fuck do we all have commitment issues?!
Listen to the most diverse guests in the podcastverse – from NYT best-selling authors like Mark Manson, to global comedians like Russell Peters, expert therapists, dating coaches, actors, musicians, influencers, showrunners, and even Natasha’s own parents!
A lighthearted podcast that often goes deep, Kinda Dating has been featured as a top dating and sex podcast in AskMen, Bustle, Refinery29, Elite Daily and more! It was also selected as an Apple New & Noteworthy.
We all want to date when it’s fun and flighty, but a lot of us struggle when it comes to getting vulnerable with our partners. Galit Atlas (psychoanalyst and author of “Emotional Inheritance”) returns to discuss our deep-rooted issues surrounding intimacy. She emphasizes the role of our generational trauma, and how fear is learned as we grow older. Dr. Atlas and Natasha share ways to break those patterns and really connect when dating! It’s a thoughtful new episode of Kinda Dating!
