LAST EPISODE FOR SEASON 1
How did we get to 26 episodes already!? It is so unreal to me that I have put out 26 episodes and that I have been doing Dating Millennial for over 4 months. SO WILD!

Never Being Enough with James "J" Stamatelos
I cannot believe this is the second to last episode of the first season for Dating Millennial Podcast! Your continuous support is the whole reason why I am doing what I do and inspires me to bring on guests like the amazing guest I have today. James “J” Stamatelos is a professional coach who helps insecure individuals build strong relationships with themselves. He specializes in addressing “anxious insecurity,” the feeling of never being “enough” no matter how much one achieves. James knows this battle first hand; it almost cost him his life. He has spent the latter part of his career exploring why this problem has exploded in Western society while also uncovering what approaches help clients break out of it best. A fully remote coach, he has worked with clients from across the United States, Canada, and United Kingdom. James has written a book on the subject, tentatively titled “Enough,” which he hopes will be published by next year.
J comes from a place of helping and would love for you to connect with him! Visit his website below to keep up with J!

The Truth About Dating with Founder Dillion De Wid
It is about time males step up to the plate when it comes to dating and my next guest is doing just that. Dillion is a dating coach and founder of Truth About Dating. His international experience growing up fueled his interest in social psychology and behavioristics. Due to his interest in psychology, he read countless books on dating and relationships and eventually put what he learned into practice. Years later, he authored a book based on his experience in the dating world, which is currently in the process of being published.
Although he has a non-traditional background, graduating with a BS & MBA in International Business from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington & an MSc in Business Consulting & Development from the Novancia Business School in Paris. Having consulted both domestic and international companies in business and gained experience working for the US Government, he eventually took a chance and went all-in on becoming a dating coach.
Due to the current pandemic, Dillion’s resolve has been strengthened even more as people have started to realize the importance of asking for help, especially when it comes to dating. Dillion believes that if we changed the stigma around asking for help, people would not only be happier, but there would be less depression and less violence in the world.

Jasmine also enjoys spontaneous travel, especially road trips to nearby adventures... whether it’s to CA to visit family & the beach, or somewhere mountainous for snowboarding, hiking & or camping.
My Struggle with Rejections & Disappointment
When I first started Dating Millennial, I received a lot of questions from my older friends or friends who have been married for a long time. One question that kept coming up over and over again is, “How do you deal with rejection?” Every time someone asked this question, I just kind of brushed over it like it was not big deal. I put up this tough exterior to make it seem like I was unbreakable which is totally not true. I’m human just like you and rejection 100000% hurts like a b*tch.
It wasn’t until recently where I really needed to think about rejection in a serious way. After another Valentine’s Day ending with me still going to sleep alone and more dates not going anywhere, I found myself really trying to understanding the concept of rejection and disappointment.
BONUS EPISODE: The Outro to a Relationship - Post Breakup Thoughts with my Ex
This will probably be the most unique episode to date as I bring on my ex onto the show. Everyone meet Daniel and he is the reason why I started Dating Millennial. We talk about our previous relationship, the good & bad parts, and dish about where we are now. This episode is mostly unedited. Everything that is said on this episode is said out of honesty and free will. I'm so lucky to be in a good place with my ex and I'm blessed to have him in my life. Daniel is a beyond special man and wish him all the happiness in the world!

Changing up the online dating space with CEO of Blink Taly Matiteyahu
Finally! A dating app that is shaking up the dating & tech industry. Not to mention, the company is founded by a woman! Talk about a huge girl crush for this boss babe!
By night, Taly works to build Blink, a virtual blind speed dating app inspired by a revelatory experience at a blackout restaurant. Making connections with strangers based on conversation alone, free of looks-driven assumptions, sparked the thought: would people date a wider variety of people and find more satisfying relationships if they were able to make an emotional connection with someone before swiping left? In 2020, Taly finally began turning the vision into reality and hopes to change online dating’s looks-first paradigm and, one day, move the concept beyond the dating world.
By day, Taly works at an AI-powered legal tech company as a Product Manager, having previously worked as a lawyer at a NYC law firm and as a legal operations professional at Netflix and Datadog. Taly earned her Bachelor's degree from New York University in 2011 and her Juris Doctorate from Columbia Law School in 2015.

The hardest lesson I’ve learned since creating Dating Millennial…
Dating Millennial has been one of the biggest blessings in my life. I never thought that I would be able to talk about something I’m passionate about and have people actually read and listen to what I say. I created Dating Millennial in the hopes of healing my own broken heart, relieve my own anxiety, and hopefully find love for myself one day. I never perdicted that Dating Millennial would teach me the hardest lesson I have probably ever had to learn in my life.

The Breakup Pandemic
It finally happened! This episode I finally had my twin sister Gabby come on and talk about "The Breakup Pandemic". She has always given me great advice on my relationships & love life. During this episode she provides some interesting insight on relationships and how to stay together during these difficult times.
Don't be that girl in a port
One of the best things I ever had in college were some seriously a**hole friends who always to me the truth. I'm so lucky that my friends were able to teach me my selfworth. In this episode we talk about self love, self worth, and gaslighting. It is 2021 y'all and we do not have time for any toxic or negative energy!
Love Languages - I learned from the greatest love of all…
I would like to dedicate this episode to my wonderful mother who has taught me how to love and how to be the best partner I could possibly be. Her love language is acts of service and I learned that from her. I have also learned another love language that I describe in this episode as well. For the Q and A portion of this episode we talk about long distance relationships and the best ways to get through the distance.
“Put me in Coach!” - What it means to be benched
Now we are not here to talk about basketball or sports, although I do love sports!
Being benched is probably one of the most frustrating things that can happen while dating. What is being benched? If you don’t know this term it either means that you have never experienced it (consider yourself lucky) or you have been benched but you had no idea it was happening to you. In the case of the latter, maybe ignorance is bliss.
Imagine you’re on the basketball team and your coach decides to have every player on the team play during the game except you. Now imagine that you are dating a person that you are interested in but they dodge you several times, make excuses on why they can’t see you, or just flat out never respond to you unless they are ready. Now that my friends is what we call being benched.
It is totally sh*tty, but let’s be honest…we are all guilty of benching someone or being benched.
To “My Man Who Isn’t My Man”
In today's episode, we dive into the concept of “My Man Who Isn’t My Man” and how this relationship can be harmful to you and your well-being. My Man Who Isn’t My Man” is that guy who is essentially like your man (or boyfriend, partner, whatever) but you are not in a committed relationship. We have all been there and have been a slave to this person. And I don’t mean a literal slave but you usually feel incredibly obligated to this person and give them the absolute world. The craziest part is that they do not give it back by any means. Because again, HE IS NOT YOUR MAN! I also talk about commitment and answer the question of "How do I get someone to commit to me?".
Welcome to Dating Millennial!
So you’re a millennial and you’re looking for love…well aren’t we all!? Welcome to Dating Millennial and I am here to talk ALL THINGS DATING AS A MILLENNIAL. That’s right! I mean ALL THINGS! No topic is off limits especially the not so glamorous parts of dating: first date horror stories, dating apps, drunken hook ups in random hotel rooms, catfishing and everything in between. We are here to keep the dating situation as real and authentic as possible. And yes, I will try to keep things somewhat PG-13 because who knows if my parents will ever stumble upon this podcast. All of us most likely have experienced similar dating experiences. You may laugh a lot on this site. You may cry. You may think what I say is “cringey” or you may relate to someone else’s experience. Or I may be totally in left field on this whole dating thing….but if there is one hope I have for this blog is that you find comfort in knowing we all struggle with love. You are definitely not alone. Dating and falling in love is hard and relationships are even harder.
I am here for support. I am here to listen. I am here to be honest and most importantly I am here in the name of love.
