It’s the summer. There’s an NBA lockout. We’re bored as hell and we’re not going to take it anymore!

Welcome to The [BLANK] Jones …

On today’s show we discuss online dating with Liz Wasserman, CEO of Mate1.com, one of the most popular dating websites in the world. What’s the worst kind of photo to put on your dating profile? What’s the advantage of joining a pay site over a free site? And how do you protect yourself from the tyranny of the cockshot? All that, plus Tas meets a girl in a chat room, Matt opens an Etsy store, and Skeets would like to know what your hobbies are.

It’s love at first type!

  1. Haven’t listened yet, but I enjoy the allusion to the movie Network or at least I do if it wasn’t intentional

  2. ugh that should be *was not wasn’t

  3. Who the fuck wants a girlfriend, who searches for tampons on craigslist? And that comming from guys who are married…. I don’t get you canadians.

  4. Hope to get Matt awkwardly pronouncing “You know it, girl!” as a special The ____ Jones ringtone.

  5. Agree with JD. Fuck those bitches.

  6. Matt, I only were a XX, I’d date you right away. Not very comforting, I know.

  7. If I were single and a girl, I’d be happy to see Matt’s 12′ ceilings!!

  8. Are those Tas and Skeets’ legs in the picture? Looks like J.E. has put on some weight.

  9. Matty O-

    Your grandma won’t pay for your J-Date account?

  10. Dating in today’s society is tough. You really have to factor in meeting people online. Often times people are so busy and work so hard that dating sites can replicate that atmosphere of meeting someone out, and just getting to know them verse going out to a bar or club. I’m interested to see how this site evolves.

  11. Don’t hate on online dating. It works hella well for me.

  12. What’s the song at the end? I can’t figure it out!

  13. What is the name on Tas’ facebook account again? Why aren’t you making an online dating account for that guy?

  14. The basketball lockout is good for your show, I think. My girlfriend reads your website and listens to your podcasts now because you guys are “branching out”. “Keep it up”, I guess.

  15. Oddly this came out today

  16. Matt, a big problem you have…You find haggling for money an effective form of foreplay.

  17. Matt: Fuck bitches, get money.

    Liz was a pretty bad ass guest I must say, she seemed funny and genuinely interesting. These last two episodes have been awesome and I really hope you keep them past 30 minutes and maybe even longer. They’re awesome to listen to, you guys can ramble on entertainingly on any topic really, that’s kinda what made the Overdose so great too.

    Any plans to get Trey involved? He was always hilarious on the OD.

    It’s created to help the online and college dating experiences.

    DirtyBubble.com is a place for people to share, rate, and review their relationships and exes. It’s like Yelp! for People. Everybody over age of 18 is allowed to sign and add reviews of their exes. They rate them on categories such as Personality, Honesty, Intimacy and Sanity. People add images of people they dated, write when they dated, and why they broke up. People can also rate each other anonymously.

    This is created so that when people meet each other online or at school, they can look each other up and find out about their past.

    Come check out the site. It’s completely anonymous.
