This week on the pod, Maria welcomes her first male guest! Not only is he a good friend, you could consider him the male version of Maria– in that no nonsense dating advice sort of way. And boy does the conversation get heated! Billed as a “personal trainer for smart, strong, successful women,” dating coach Evan Marc Katz has been helping singles since 2003. He is the author of four books, most recently, “Believe in Love,” and has been featured in hundreds of media outlets, including Today, the New York Times, and CNN. Since 2015, Evan’s blog has had over 30 million readers and 12,000 women have graduated from Love U, his six-month video course that helps women understand men and find love. Evan is very happily married and lives in Los Angeles with his wife and their two children. Even though they may disagree on some things, Maria and Evan bring it back to help dish out advice that you can use and relate to. Things talked about in this episode…

What does it mean if your boyfriend watches p0rn? Should you still be friends with your ex? What does it mean if your ex is still following you on social media. How do you find the right guy when you have a certain criteria for them? Is it possible to know right away if someone is “the one.” Is “once a cheater, always a cheater” true?
