Island Girls Podcast - Mountain Man

Happy Hump Day Friends! It is time for another Island Girls Podcast and we have to say, even though we may be biased, it is a good one! Since it is freezing cold outside, we recommend you grab some coffee or tea and listen to this week "coffee talk" with a young gentleman, while you work on the computer, cook in the kitchen, or even need to be distracted while running on the treadmill. 

Last week and Dorothy and I had the pleasure of sitting down with a young man to talk about dating, love, and life 30 miles out at sea on Nantucket Island. Kelly is 27 years old; from Vermont, (hence the "Mountain Man" title we gave him); studying for the LSAT's; working and living on the island until February. We loved chatting with him and getting a younger man's perspective.

I am not going to lie. It definitely made me feel a little old, but hearing him talk about these topics was fun and interesting. I loved how he picks up the phone to call women he is interested in. But I also found it interesting how the women his age felt uncomfortable when he called and would have rather received a text message? Kelley was a total sweetheart and it was such a pleasure to have him on our podcast, so that you can learn more about him and what is like for a 27-year-old man in today's dating world.

Make sure to tune in to the full podcast here

Let us know what you think! We really want to start engaging with our listeners and we want to know if you have any specific questions; what you would like us to talk about more; and if you would want to share some of your stories with us. We want this to be a fun, inspiring, and educational space where we can all learn, grow, and support each other. 

As you can tell, I am really enjoying these podcasts as it is allowing me to open up more...learn more about myself...spend more time with Dorothy...have fun...and inspire me personally and professionally. Once you start talking about these topics out loud, you are putting them out into the universe, and then it is time to make things happen! I LOVE THAT!

When you were in your 20's did you know your non-negotiables?

Have you dated someone a lot younger or older? 

 

Island Girls Podcast - A Nantucket Gentleman

It is the LAST big weekend on beautiful Nantucket, until April and it is time to celebrate! "Stroll" weekend is officially here! The boats and planes are sold out...Restaurants are booked solid...Christmas decorations are everywhere...and the island will be filled with up to 40,000 people! I am looking forward to dressing up, toasting to the festivities with friends, and yes DISCONNECTING to enjoy life on this beautiful island! It has been a busy week and I worked hard, so all those devices need to be shut down. It is time to make REAL connections for 48 hours and celebrate the Christmas season!

BUT...Before I disconnect...We have a NEW podcast to share with you! This past week Dorothy and I met up with a "Nantucket Gentleman" over coffee and tea at Nantucket Culinary Center to talk about dating, love, and of course Nantucket. It was so much fun to get a male perspective. The conversation was fun, relaxing, and honestly, we could have talked for over an hour. People love to talk about these topics and so do we. (And I know my little sister is going to listen to this and she is going to tell me that I say "like" too much and I noticed that I do...DOH! I will work on that little sister...HAHAHA!) And moving forward...

Here are some of the questions that we asked our "Nantucket Gentleman" were:

  • Why do men text and not call anymore?
  • What are some things that women do that are a turnoff?
  • What do you appreciate about a woman?

So click HERE to listen to the podcast and ENJOY! If you have any questions that you would like us to ask or topics that you want us to cover, please leave them in the comments below. We want to hear from you and know your thoughts!

Have a beautiful weekend friends and I will see you next week! XOXO

Island Girls Start A Podcast

For a long time, I have been wanting to write about my "Oh So Single Life" and what it is like dating on Nantucket and what it is like to be a single lady in today's society. Let's be real...it is HARD. It is frustrating. It is exhausting. And it is CONFUSING! With all the dating sites, apps, and trying to figure out the "rules", it is a hot mess and sometimes leaves my head spinning. I know that I am not the only lady out there who feels this way. Raise your hand if you agree?

Every time I would try to sit down and write about this, I felt overwhelmed and I was having a hard time putting it ALL on paper. Thank goodness for podcasts! And thank goodness for my partner in crime Dorothy! A few months ago, we started meeting at the Corner Table for delicious coffee, tea, and to talk about life, wellness, love, and Nantucket life. We both love to write, dream BIG, and inspire others, so it occurred to us that we have a lot to share. After brainstorming for a while, we believed it was time to start "Island Girls". 

Island GIRLS

Let us learn a little bit more about Dorothy first...

Dorothy is a 7th generation Nantucketer. When she hit her rock bottom in her 20s, she made a choice that everything she would do in life she would do for love. Every day she makes that choice which has lead her to travel the world, become an entrepreneur, a yogini and love have fueled her writing, having a weekly Freaky Friday column on The Nantucket Chronicle, she has written Amazing Love Diet and has another book coming out, War on Love. Love can be a hard choice to make but it's always worth making.
