Love the podcast J & J!
Seriously saved my mind from going nuts!
This is such a great podcast- it’s necessary, funny, educational, real and truthful and gives great perspective. I’m so grateful this podcast is in the world and Jordana and Jared are so wonderful to give there time to help people. Thank you both.

Both keep it real and entertaining
Complainers have no humor
Love this podcast. I have never written a review, but I wanted to voice my support. Everyone who is complaining on these reviews has no sense of humor. To directly combat the review about Jess talking: it’s funny. We love hearing her laugh in the background and roast jarred. I can’t believe someone was bothered enough by her occasional one liner to write a review about it. The content is funny and easy to listen to, light hearted, and relatable. Highly recommend. Also they are not the CDC and responsible for relaying information about this pandemic... so take your complaints elsewhere.

Amazing Podcast
If you are dating in your 20s and 30s, you have to listen to this podcast. I’ve learned so much about the male species from Jared! It is super helpful!!
Longest intro EVER
20 minutes into the episode with zero content is kind of a joke 🙄🙄🙄
Out of touch
So frustrating to hear you guys make it sound like it’s such a big deal for someone to go get tested and take safe measures when dating. We are in a pandemic. You both are very out of touch from the dating world.
Please stop glamorizing dangerous behavior
I’ve been a listener for years but I was pretty repulsed by this week’s glamorizing of extremely unsafe covid behaviors while we’re in a time of peak covid cases/deaths (e.g. traveling back & forth to Florida, inside dining, acting like it’s fine to act unsafely just because everyone around you is). I know you guys try not to get into “politics” but making potentially deadly behaviors sound acceptable (or even cool) is simply not okay and I’d urge you to use your large platform better.

Let’s Hold Men to Higher Standards
All I’ve learned from this podcast is that we as a society hold men to low standards. If the worst thing happening to women is that they are repeatedly getting screwed over by men who have no problem lying and manipulating and misleading women for months or years to get sex, and the worst thing happening to men is that women are talking about and calling them names at brunch, maybe it’s time to put more of the responsibility for proper dating behavior on men. Jared could use his platform to be more open about and take more responsibility for his past actions, but it seems he is instead trying to use his current relationship status to convince listeners (and himself) that using and manipulating people is the path to a healthy committed relationship.

Amazing! They give such great advice

Great podcast, a few irks
Great podcast! Production and hosts have evolved since it began and both offer very practical perspectives of a myriad of relevant situations. One favor: stop with the off-camera commentary from Jess. Give her a mic or edit those parts out.
I’ve heard every single episode
I’ve listened for many years but never left a review. This is a very good podcast, but they are running out of meaningful/ entertaining content to present on weekly basis. They are very listener reliant and there is room for innovation. They are both in relationships now and the content has fallen off since that point, I’m not sure if they are muzzled or bored, but it is certainly worth a listen.

A coworker sent me this podcast last year and ever since I have been absolutely HOOKED. I listen every single week and have gone back and listened to every episode since they started. Embarrassing but true. J+J have completely changed my perspective on dating and singleness in the modern world and have shed light on so many dating scenarios that I would be too scared to ask my friends about. like Jared always says, they are “having uncomfortable conversations, comfortably.” BIGGGG FAN

Bing It!
Funny, relatable, real. They stick to what they know and keep it relevant.
Tone deaf about COVID
I used to listen because I like Jared and his podcast even though the advice is never good (I’m married and would never trust their advice lol) but recently I can’t listen to the insensitive Covid comments and hear about their vacation travel to Florida.. it’s completely tone deaf and obnoxious. They make people that take the virus serious feel like idiots when it is them who should feel stupid. Lots of us are high risk whether it be asthma, pregnancy or just don’t want to get covid. I find their entire takes on covid awful and they’re contributing to the issues in this country by being so non-chalant about non essential travel and seeing lots of their family members. It’s obvious they haven’t been affected by the virus on that level...yet.

I’m rate review and subscribing!
These two are the most amazing dating podcast duo out there! They bring up dating issues extremely relatable to the 21st century and even for these COVID times. Jared and Jordana are hilarious together and you would be sorely missing out if you aren’t listening to them right now single or not!
Single, dating, who cares. Great podcast
Entertaining while I was single, loving it a year into my relationship. ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️
Love it
I have binged this pod and love both J’s, they’re funny without trying to be and it’s the perfect thing to accompany my walk / car rides. It’s turned me on to all of the other betches podcasts and Jared’s Jtrain pod as well!
Out of touch
People are literally dying and these idiots continue to make light of the pandemic. Get a grip on reality and maybe realize that your behavior is putting health care professionals and low wage workers even more at risk. Jared, you sound even dumber than you look, what an accomplishment.

This podcast was the 1st podcast I’ve ever listened to. Haven't stopped since!
Overall love
I’ve been listening to this podcast since the beginning and it’s the most nuanced, interesting, and funny dating podcast I know. All others I’ve listened to seem to kind of be copies/ have similar and vague advice. One critique I have that I’ve noticed more and more over the last couple of months - this may be harsh but I think Jared needs to go through a bad, heart breaking, gut wrenching type of break up to be more relatable on this show. His takes on dating sometimes speak to a view that every relationship is the same, and if they don’t like you, haven’t shown interest, or “meet your standard”, you should move on as if dating is choosing fruit at the grocery store. Particular noticed in this last episode where listener wrote in about her ex moving on quickly - and his advice was not to take it personal, and almost criticized the viewer for having those thoughts. While I generally agree with that viewpoint, when you’re dealing with a long term, thought- I- would - marry this person break up, it’d be nice to hear a more empathetic / real / vulnerable perspective. Jordana definitely provides that - it’s as if Jared has never really had a real heart break before. Thanks

Something for everyone!
My only regret is not finding this podcast sooner. It proved useful for me in my single phase as I tried to navigate the awkward world of online dating, and it remains just as relevant as I begin a new relationship. J & J are awesome and present the information in a way that is both relatable and funny. Highly recommended!
It’s Like, ya know, like...
I wish I could tase them eberytime they say “Like”

I found a keeper on my 2nd try!
I went out with a someone and I just wasn’t feeling right off the bat. Kind of boring, awkward, and just not the same vibe. Needless to say it didn’t go anywhere. Then, I met someone else online. We hit it off right away! They made me laugh, taught me things about themself •and• me, and I continually wanted more of them. Things are getting pretty serious, and I’m so excited to see where things go! Thanks Jordana, Jared and the U Up team, for being my second date success story. Your podcast is fantastic!

Hilarious and helpful perspective!
Love listening to J&J every week (plus the mini episodes)! It’s changed the way I look at dating! Thanks for an entertaining advice!
10/10 Recommend
Always a fun listen!! A great Female/Male perspective and advice on dating! I always looks forward to Wednesday and Sundays bc of these episodes!!
Literally laughed out loud
Such a great take on modern dating, don't know how I'm so late to the game, but it's a new find and I'm going through episodes like crazy. Absolutely love it, so hilarious and spot on!
Every other word in this podcast is “like”
I wanted to love this podcast, I really did! (I am a huge fan of Jared especially and think he’s hilarious). However, even though I’ve tried dozens of times to listen to episodes, I inevitably get infuriated and give up within the first five minutes because of one thing: the female host’s commentary is filled with a truly insufferable amount of “likes.” As in: “I was like, just like, I couldn’t like, handle that like....” (this is an example of half of one sentence). My speech isn’t perfect and I don’t expect anyone else’s to be. But I listen to a lot of podcasts and have never noticed anyone’s language NEAR this bad in terms of the “like” usage to the point where I’ve unsubscribed. It’s just not professional and not pleasant to listen to. I hope that the hosts will take this feedback into account because I do want to “like” and listen to this podcast!

The hosts talk over each other
It’s hard to listen when the hosts are talking over one another the entire time.
Love it
This show is hilarious while still giving real advice. 10/10
The ads are too long!!
I love the pod but I am getting sick of the ads being soooo long (orbit looking at you) and also the sponsors being randomly dropped into the podcast... it makes it seem like the whole thing is an ad. It’s gotten super bad recently - didn’t used to be this way a few months ago.
Not really relevant anymore
This used to apply to people outside of NYC too, but it seems like they don’t really seem to be able to make this relevant if you don’t live in NYC.
Unsustainable podcast
Been listening since day 1 but think it's time to finally say bye. I kept hoping things would improve, but it just gets worse. Jared is a broken record with his advice, stories and his "prince of promos" spiels oh my god make it stop 😫😭 Also, he is constantly interrupting Jordana and goes off on excruciatingly long tangents about himself, which makes it so ironic that he's giving dating advice?!! Like, if he dated the way he co-hosts a podcast ... awfullll. Practically speaking, both J and J are in long-term relationships now and are honestly clueless than ever about dating. They prob think they know enough of what's going on bc of their past single lives and from what they gather from the emails, but the fact is neither are living the modern single person's actual reality and haven't for a while. IT SHOWS. This was probably inevitable and ofc we're all happy for them, but that and the fact that Jared is unbearable is why I'm unsubscribing. It was a good run for a couple years, but I doubt it can go on much longer ✌🏼

Recently single and it’s like research. Very funny, informative, and easy to listen to.
Love this podcast!
This podcast gets me through the week. Also, extremely relatable when trying to date in the modern age.

JTrain diehard
Really pushed off starting this podcast since I figure there’s no getting better than Jared’s podcast! Been a fan for years. Constantly looking to get more JTrain during work hours, love it already!
Scary gal
Love J&J! Thanks for making every week just a little bit better in quarantine!
Why an Ex swiped Right episode
Love getting slapped in the face by Jared’s honesty of the male intentions. But, I really loved Jordana pointing out, that although the signs were there, he still sucked. I want the truth but appreciate when Jordana supports the stupid person lol.
Can we stop labeling very “female” and very “male?”
Really dig the perspective however I wish Jared would stop labeling behaviors or ways or thinking as “male” or “female.” It feels really archive. A male or a female is a person, so if it’s something a male or female does than it’s just something a lot of people do or think in general. It’s pretty off putting but o enjoy the podcast despite this and plan to keep listening. I do think it would be good if Jared could lessen how often he applies the same phrases or advice, for example “own your standards.” I get that he sees trends but it starts to feel like he isn’t really trying to have nuance and just defaulting to his go to phrase to explain what’s going on or what the advice is. Jordana balances that out with more thoughtfulness and devil’s advocate and just putting herself in the listener’s show. Jared does always show empathy when it’s a hard situation and I appreciate when he suggests he can only advice so much and recommends seeing a professional. Much love! This podcast is overall helpful and insightful navigating the dating world. I like that Jared is open to constructive feedback. I also disagree that their advice isn’t what it used to be since they’re in relationships. I appreciate the perspective and just because you’re in a relationship now, doesn’t mean you can’t have insight on dating! Also please keep living in the world we’re in and not editing out the pandemic. Will keep listening!

Out of touch
Used to listen religiously but their takes just seem a bit out of touch now that they’ve both been in long term relationships for a while. If i wanted relationship advice from people in relationships i’d just ask my friends
Jared should listen more speak less.
Lately Jared makes no sense. Jumps on things before fully listening. Incredibly annoying.
Favorite podcast
Love J & J and look forward to the podcast every week. Great advice while also making me laugh out loud. Also loving the addition of the Sunday specials!
coop dawg
The perfect combo
I love the male/female dynamic of this podcast. I have absolutely loved following along the last few years as Jordan has gotten engaged and now Jared is in a relationship. It’s been cool to see some of their views stay consistent and some change as they’ve grown in their relationships. It’s very real. I love jordana, as I’m an anxious dater like her. Her recommendation of reading “Attached” and their advice have been life changing!

My favorite! And I listen to A LOT of podcasts!
Fan girl af. Always sharing and telling people to listen! J&J are hilarious and complement each other perfectly! It makes me think, helps my life and has me laughing constantly. It's not just comedy, they actually give amazing advice for relationships and life in general. Listen to it. Do it.
Hilarious and so relevant
Thank you for being the podcast I look forward to new episodes dropping the most! I love the female and male perspectives shared between J and J. Your banter is great. It’s nice to hear a wide range of issues from first dates to much more intimate conversations between couples. Thanks for your awesome content.
I can’t believe I just found you guys!! But, I’m glad I did! Love listening and laughing. 👏🏼💕
