Podcast #57: Being Single is Better Than Settling

In this week’s episode, we begin by discussing the disgusting heat wave that’s hitting Boston (and the rest of the world). Then, Jess and Laura discuss the most recent season of The Bachelorette. If you’re not a Bachelorette fan, you can skip to 22:55 for the rest of the episode.

Today’s episode is all about being single. Being single gets a bad reputation, but it shouldn’t. Jess and Laura talk about the best things about being single, and why it’s not bad or scary like it’s cracked up to be.

Settling or Staying Single

Ultimately, being single is better than being in a bad relationship, or a relationship that isn’t serving you. The two discuss all of the reasons why, and provide tips to anyone who isn’t sure if their relationship is right for them.

Finally, the episode concludes with the adulting moments of the week, which include a tip about cable boxes, and a plug for Pura, a smart home diffuser.

Laura was born at the beach in New Jersey, but she'd be the first to tell you her childhood was nothing like Jersey Shore. Sadly. When she's not writing, you can find her reading on her beloved Kindle, listening to true crime podcasts, or looking up adoptable cats.

Outside of her 9-5 as a writer, Laura is the owner of Looks by Laura, an online thrifted clothing boutique. She's the co-founder of Adultescence, a podcast and lifestyle website about navigating that challenging space between adolescence and adulthood. And she makes a mean eggplant parm.
