Today, we've got the incredible Michael Kaye -- Head of Global Communications at OkCupid. He's got the inside scoop on being the best online dater you can be. He is also teaching Communications at NYU and is on the Board of Governors for the Human Rights Campaign.
Like me, Michael has made a career by helping people find success in relationships; it's our jam. We dive into the secrets to the best profile, cuffing season, the hookup culture change, and so much more!
"Ask your friends for help with your dating profile. Those people know you best." ~Michael Kaye
Today's conversation highlights the DOs and DON'Ts of online dating and how to spark that first online conversation and take it offline just in time for the cuffing season. (Listen to find out the deets of when it begins!) Michael shares all his inside advice to make the most of your time dating online.
As a bonus, Michael is offering to upgrade listeners to OKCupid PREMIUM for FREE!
