Dear reader,
I wrangled comedian Joyelle Nicole Johnson for an EMERGENCY Ask a Matchmaker episode. 🚨
We got together to unpack Reesa Teesa’s “Who TF Did I Marry” saga. In case you’ve been living under a TikTok rock, Reesa Teesa is a Jersey woman living in Atlanta who went viral for telling the story about how she met, dated, married, and divorced a pathological liar.
Her story is particularly remarkable, not just because of the content, but because she’s managed to capture millions of people with her 53-part series (videos that are ten minutes each,  by the way).
In honor of Reesa Teesa, I asked the listeners to share the craziest lies they’ve been told by someone they were dating. 
I won’t spoil it for you, but expect to hear about faked terminal illnesses, clues that don’t add up, and a whole host of other red flags. 🚩🚩🚩
Here are Joyelle and I’s biggest takeaways from these cautionary tales:
  • Meet your significant other’s friends. Right away. There is no excuse as to why you shouldn’t meet them within the first month of dating. Schedule a Zoom meeting if you have to, or invite them to meet your friends first. This should be priority #1.
  • Trust your gut and be strong. It’s often not that we don’t see the lies. It’s that we see them and choose to ignore them.
  • Avoid men who are 6’4 (just kidding, but not really).
Last but not least, learn who Joyelle and I would cast in the “Who Tf Did I Marry” movie. I’m thinking Shonda Rhimes, creator of Scandal and Grey’s Anatomy. In Shondaland, I believe there is a place where Reesa Teesa is held with care.
But let me know what you think! Reply to this email with your casting choices, or tag me on Instagram.
