[theme song plays]

Christina:

And That I’m Christina.


Drew:

And welcome to

Wait, Is This A Romantic Date?


Christina:


Hold Off, Is It A Date

is an Autostraddle podcast dedicated to the only, the only real concern that people previously wanna speak about. I’m not sure in which I’m going using this. It is more about online dating and it is about once you understand whether everything is times or not, etc.


Drew:

A pal of my own requested me— virtually I managed to get a book past that has been like, “I’m not sure if this thing I’m on is a romantic date or perhaps not.” And I was actually like, “i’ve a podcast about that.” And he had been like, “Yeah, i understand. I’m sure.” And I also ended up being like, “You could ask.” In which he had been like, “And risk rejection? Never.” And I also went, “Well, you need to tune in to the podcast more because we carry out protect this very thing.”


Christina:

And that is actually what we should’re looking to get to at the end of the ding dang day.


Drew:

Yeah. My name is Drew Gregory. I am a writer for Autostraddle and a filmmaker and a queer trans lady and honestly holding more than from a week ago, only number one Paul Newman lover of-the-moment definitely— you understand, I love to change the thing I’m simply positively fixating on and that’s the point that I— Now we are on week two.


Christina:

I really like that. I’m Christina Tucker. I’m additionally an author at Autostraddle and a podcaster round the really city. Town in doing this may be the internet. I am in addition rather homosexual and that I want to support your own hyper fixations on things.


Drew:

Thank you so much.


Christina:

In my opinion it’s wonderful. In my opinion it’s really gorgeous and I’m truly pleased you’re still about this quest with the help of our man, Paul. I do believe which is breathtaking.


Drew:

Thanks a whole lot.

You may have a casino game for me?


Christina:

I do have a-game individually. I have a-game for you that i believe is probably going to be rather challenging, however it should be fun.


Drew:

Great. Great, fantastic, great. I favor that. I adore it, I enjoy it.


Christina:

Today’s game is actually: So is this a Hayley Kiyoko lyric or perhaps is it a range from Rupi Kaur’s poetry?


Drew:

Wow. Okay.


Christina:

And it’s really gonna be challenging, but we’re going to celebrate. We aren’t here for a long time, we are here for a great time. That is the motto.


Drew:

Wow. you are really wading into two discourses. What i’m saying is, there is not really most Hayley Kiyoko discourse, truly.


Christina:

Yeah. And that I believed I’d go-back at some point to, I don’t know, 2014 as soon as we happened to be having Rupi Kaur discussion. I don’t know that we are anymore, but—


Drew:

No, which is a really good point. Yeah.


Christina:

You will want to generate bull crap when you are able create a joke?


Drew:

Certain. Yeah, why don’t we do it.


Christina:

Are you ready?


Drew:

Yeah.


Christina:

“the fact remains you make my tongue therefore weakened it forgets exactly what vocabulary to speak in.” Or, “hear your own voice. Could you be here? Through woods, fill air.”


Drew:

I believe the most important one is Rupi Kaur and the 2nd you’re Hayley Kiyoko


Christina:

And you are clearly correct. Attractive work.


Drew:

Great. Okay. This may be embarrassing because I am not going to state I happened to be a big Hayley Kiyoko follower in 2018, but used to do see her in concert and listen to their a large number and so I think you could state I happened to be at the very least an admirer.


Christina:

I am in the same way an admirer. And I also would respect that. Though i did so, i believe, primarily select current album. If You’re awesome acquainted that record already—


Drew:

I’m not. I’m not.


Christina:

Right. Because we have been in a Paul Newman spot. There isn’t been in a listening to Hayley place.


Drew:

No. We mean—


Christina:

No, I notice you. I hear you. All right, number 2. “Shadows ascend within the steps,” your first range. And you are second line, “just like the rainbow following the rainfall.”


Drew:

Oh, which is so hard. Might consider rainbow can be Hayley considering the fundamental queer. I’ll opt for that.


Christina:

You would certainly be incorrect. “The rainbow following the rainfall” is Rupi.


Drew:

Wow.


Christina:

Yes. Yes, certainly. But yeah, I thought that might throw you for 1.


Drew:

Yeah.


Christina:

There is five among these. So I’m maybe not probably move you to carry out a huge amount of these since this is frustrating. Quantity five.


Drew:

No, no, no. I am having an enjoyable experience.


Christina:

Maybe not number five. Number three. I don’t know ideas on how to count. I’m gay. “its caught inside my mind, that which we has been.” Number two. “We commonly all of our injuries with sophistication.”


Drew:

Oh see, this seems as well simple. Personally I think like i am getting tricked. It is like the initial a person is obviously Hayley together with 2nd you’re Rupi, the good news is i am love, was We acquiring tricked? I will change my impulse. The 2nd a person is—


Christina:

You will state another one is Hayley?


Drew:

Another one is Hayley. Yeah.


Christina:

Okay. You need to trust your instincts, that will be a lesson for guessing what exactly are words versus poetry and dating additionally. That’s a training for the listeners also.


Drew:

Wow. Okay.


Christina:

Fine. Number four. “So we become endless,” or “coals like sea cinch healed all of your damaged parts.”


Drew:

Oh Jesus. Those both actually could possibly be both, that I learn will be the point of this online game, but it is nonetheless—


Christina:

It is great when you validate that i did so a task in getting this deranged game collectively.


Drew:

I think initial one is Hayley together with next a person is Rupi.


Christina:

You sadly might possibly be wrong. “and thus we become eternal” is Rupi and “cool such as the sea wind healed all broken parts” is certainly the main legend, Hayley Kiyoko.


Drew:

Wow. Okay.


Christina:

Okay. Our final one. Could you be mentally ready?


Drew:

In my opinion thus.


Christina:

Okay. “I’d burn off both you and you still couldn’t bring your eyes off me,” or “I’m carried out with fireplaces in order to prove that i have been cursed.”


Drew:

Wow. Okay. I do believe the most important a person is Hayley because that is like the woman gay bravado.


Christina:

You are wrong. That one is Rupi Kaur.


Drew:

Exactly What?


Christina:

Yeah.


Drew:

Wow. I truly thought good about that certain.


Christina:

No, this 1 had been actually unexpected and I really was delighted to just be like, oh, there is two fire people that i could assembled, but we knew which was the most difficult one so I did conserve it for final.


Drew:

What is Rupi Kaur to? Is she only creating poetry?


Christina:

I believe she’s still creating publications. I think just what example for this game is, something could be a lyric and such a thing might be a Rupi Kaur poem.


Drew:

You might argue that words are poetry.


Christina:

Wow. which is in fact big to consider.


Drew:

Something I will state about Hayley Kiyoko is actually I’m therefore proud of the lady that she don’t stop trying internet dating “right girls” and discovered someone that she actually is now in the full on connection with that like— of the many, you find attractive directly girls, what the results are from that, she eventually pulled the Tig Notaro, Stephanie Allynne. She finally performed one the spot where the individual wasn’t directly. These people were on it your long haul or perhaps for a decent amount period. And I also’m only thus delighted on her behalf. It’s not something i suggest to prospects that happen to ben’t pop stars.


Christina:

Yeah. I’d not date ex Bachelor contestants either. Looks tough. May seem like a difficult roadway.


Drew:

Yeah. There’s always one or two which leave very early. I mean I only seen two seasons, but i decided there are two contestants the place you’re in this way man or woman’s too cool for this or perhaps is simply a separate method of hot. Is actually a gay hot vs a Bachelor hot. As well as constantly got off of the very first episode and/or second event and most likely for this reason, but I would date one of those.


Christina:

Yeah. I might date for certain. Certainly. Primarily, frankly, in order to end up like, yeah, that is something used to do. Exactly how fun is to express aloud?


Drew:

It really is an extremely good point.

Well, that has been a blast.


Christina:

I am very pleased. I think this then guest and subject is going to be a great time in addition.


Drew:

I believe thus too. Should our extremely special guest introduce by herself?


Yashwina:

Hi, I’m Yashwina. Recognized to people who like me personally or hate myself as Yash.


Christina:

I like the confidence of really love me or detest myself.


Yashwina:

I enjoy offer individuals solutions. I am in addition an author and pain at Autostraddle.


Christina:

Yes. We like a pain in the neck per which where we get. We help nuisancetry.


Yashwina:

I simply believe that we will need to help gay wrongs including homosexual rights.


Drew:

And you’ve truly joined me personally in bringing some classic film fuel and fandom to Autostraddle. And it’s really actually effective not to end up being by yourself.


Yashwina:

I love this for people.


Christina:

It is breathtaking observe you guys have these a grand amount of time in the traditional film electricity.


Drew:

In all honesty, i do believe we’re able to exercise more. I believe we could take it … I don’t know. I found myself enjoying these Paul Newman films and I also had been like, may I get a write-up from this? And that I ended up being like, I don’t know basically could. It could be a stretch. Then Again I Found Myself like, well…


Christina:

Definitely your chosen sort of extend though. Definitionally, your chosen kind of extend is actually how can I get this to work?


Drew:

Positively. Therefore we’ll see.


Yashwina:

The type is literally known as Butch Cassidy.


Drew:

Ooh.


Christina:

Well. And point out that.


Drew:

Wow.


Christina:

Point out that.


Yashwina:

I recently believe lesbians should dress like Paul Newman figures. Enough already perform.


Drew:

I actually do agree.


Christina:

Yeah. I need to go along with that certain.


Drew:

We’re not unfortuitously— Well, not unfortuitously. We’re here to go over a thing that’s strongly related to the online dating podcast, etc, etc. So it’s not unfortunate, but our company is right here to share the main topic of bringing in partners to pals. What takes place when our friends hate all of our lovers and even maybe not lovers, but someone we’re going on one or two times with, some body we’re hooking up with, a person that we’re getting to their everyday lives against their particular will, and precisely what do they need to state about this.


Christina:

I love you made that sound like a hostage situation.


Drew:

Often it feels like it.


Christina:

Providing this individual to your existence against your might and you’ll cope.


Drew:

I guess the very first concern that I have for all those is in that vibrant, are you presently usually the one bringing the individual against everyone’ will or the person whose will is actually… this might be getting confusing. Do you actually will date individuals who your pals dislike? Analysis buddies usually date individuals who you do not like?


Christina:

As a well-known hater, i am going to say it’s that my pals date folks that Really don’t like. Certainly my personal greatest worries in life usually i’d date some one that my pals did not like. Practically nothing would worry me personally completely over that. Being love, “I’m not sure the things I’m… Preciselywhat are we carrying out here? Exactly how is it probably work?” That could truly deliver me for a spiral. So I commonly just hide inside my place and be want, “Hmm. Here is the individual you are taking. Interesting.”


Drew:

We tend to imagine based on once you understand you that that anxiety is definitely not the only real good reason why you are not an important dater, but it is part of the worries.


Christina:

Oh, definitely section of it. Certainly an integral part of it. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. Okay. Think about you two?


Yashwina:

I have been on every area of the picture, but I will say that over the years my pals have actually said that my personal flavor is very hit-or-miss. More neglect.


Christina:

Interesting. Interesting.


Yashwina:

Yeah. I’ve been in times when my pals did not like individual I happened to be internet dating, the spot where the individual I happened to be matchmaking didn’t like my buddies, and in which We have perhaps not preferred the individuals that my pals happened to be internet dating often. Therefore I have observed every setup.


Drew:

How do you experience it? Could it possibly be relationships or perhaps is it people you’re casually witnessing usually?


Yashwina:

It really is certainly already been both, however it is interesting in situations where personally i think really from it concerns a hierarchy of allegiance or confidence or loyalty where it’s like, easily trust someone to pull me apart and stay want, “Hey, this other person inside your life isn’t really dealing with the method you want to view you end up being treated,” then there’s sorts of a pecking order where it’s like, fine, this person is the one whose explanation of occasions I have to hear by far the most and maybe other people get taken with additional cereals of sodium. In case, in such and these setup, this person is actually informing me personally simply because they value me personally plus they want good things for me personally, that some thing isn’t really appropriate, then you’ve to hear it.


Drew:

Yeah. It really is interesting because with not my existing relationship, but my the majority of severe union before that, when we began online dating, it had been largely my personal companion telling me that my friends form of sucked. And in some means you might think could well be like, ah, that is not a beneficial signal in case your partner’s wanting to turn you from your pals. Nevertheless was actually done in a manner which was truly caring and my personal most useful closest friend — adore it was not everyone — therefore I think in addition assisted. And I was still a college student and was closeted so my buddies had been either straight or additionally closeted. And a lot of my friends performed blow and didn’t… rather than also sucked. Because what does that mean? But just failed to address me personally well. And thus she was actually directly to create those responses. The good news is, because I believe far more secure in my own relationships, if any person I was internet dating were to say, “Your buddies draw,” I would wind up as, ah, this isn’t a good signal. This will be a red flag. Which fortunately, i have not ever been in a relationship in which my friends and my partner get on above currently hence I have in conjunction with my partner’s pals many it is better. It is such nicer.


Christina:

Go on. Truly.


Drew:

Therefore the first couple of major interactions I experienced, it wasn’t that my buddies don’t like those individuals. They appreciated them much. It’s just i did not actually recognize at that time, because I didn’t have almost anything to contrast it to. Now I am love, oh, the folks inside my existence tend to be thrilled to see… It is different. It simply seems various and it’s really good. And that is a really good thing.


Christina:

Yeah. It’s cool.


Drew:

But, I’m not sure. What i’m saying is, i really do consider individuals intend to make blunders. Not really blunders. Need date individuals which they can be matchmaking {a
