Scott travels to Miami. Dan breaks Bumble.

This is not a joke. Jump to the 47 minute mark to see how Dan actually broke Bumble, accidentally figuring out a way to message women first.

• To start the show, the Levy Bros. talk about Scott's trip to Miami (with plenty of music to go with it) and what it's like to have to balance co-parenting when it comes to your kids picking a college.

• We talk about how far you'd travel to match with someone on a dating app.

• We give some really great tips on how to maximize your search function on these apps — and how to NOT get overwhelmed. And, with Valentine's Day coming up fast, Scott talks about how he doesn't have love in his life.

Scott: "When I’ve not been with somebody on Valentines Day over the past 8 years…I spend that time figuring out what I want and narrowing my search.
This is the time that I usually spend to focus in on what I’m looking for.

"It’s a reminder that I don’t have love. Except for my kids, and I need to figure that out. And my brother."

Dan: "I was going to say, “what the hell’s this. I put up with your shit every day. If that’s not love...”


Some more quotes in order of when they appear:
• "He’s got a third eye."

• "Bienvenido a Miami."

• "I don’t know many people that can afford college, no matter where it is. It’s expensive." 

• "In New Jersey, you’re an hour away from everything."

"• Would you take a trip to the Netherlands, and would you pay for it all, or would you…go Dutch?"

• “'There’s somewhere out there for me.' You’re in that romantic phase. You’re willing to go where the love is for you.

• "This is a Mom-ism, but there’s a lid for every pot. And you get to a certain point in your life where you want your lid. And that might not be in close proximity."  

• "It’s funny because even people who I’m with, by the end of the date, they went from the beginning being like, 'I don’t need help,' to like, 'oh my God, this is overwhelming.'”

"I literally had somebody say to me they almost had a panic attack with how much this is all about. They said, 'I thought my profile was good and now I’m, like, freaking out.'

"Don’t freak out. Just let us help you."

• "This weekend, I hung out with a person who was 30. It was the greatest old man feeling in the world. It’s amazing."

• "They want you to be wowed by the volume of people on these apps. It’s part of the game."

• "When I’ve not been with somebody on Valentine's Day over the past 8 years…I spend that time figuring out what I want and narrowing my search.
This is the time that I usually spend to focus in on what I’m looking for. 

• "Make sure you get all the information that you can before you waste time pining over someone who is never going to respond to you."

• "It’s more important to women that you’re tall than you’re a Trump supporter."
