Welcome to A Single Serving Podcast: this is where we change the discussion around being single into one that doesn’t suck.

Sophy Singer is a matchmaker—a real one. She’s a natural connector of human beings who has spent years bringing people together, and this week she’s sharing her perspective and insights as a matchmaker with the single community.

— Shani Silver, A Single Serving

We love how this podcast opens, and we love even more that Brooklyn based writer and freelancer, Shani Silver, chats with our very own Sophy Singer in recent episode: Full Yenta Mode.

Insider tips: The interview officially begins at minute 3:48. Readers who’re crunched for time and already familiar with the matchmaking process, may like to jump to 41:50 for dating life topics unrelated to the former like: dating intentions, conversation topics, Tracy McMillan, sex, alcohol, rock n’roll (not literally on the last but you get the picture), and more!

In Shani’s words, Sophy is a dating “shock absorber,” and this particular episode is: A great listen for anyone looking to develop a positive and practical headspace around dating and single-hood.

More on Sophy…

Sophy’s been there. Following the end of an engagement, Sophy went on countless dates, receiving mentoring and therapy while she was in the trenches of it. Over time, she noticed she was good at dating, and enjoyed the process—so much so that she developed a reputation as the person to come to for dating advice. She’s been working in the dating space ever since. Ten years later, Sophy is married with six-year-old twins. She’s been a dating coach for over ten years, as well as a professional matchmaker with Tawkify, going on 4 years now. Sophy has curated over 600 dates, serviced over 200 clients, and recruited countless singles into the Tawkify “Romance Rolodex.” Over the past three years, she has been rated five out of five stars in 63 unique customer satisfaction surveys at Tawkify.

In other words, she’s a rock star!

When people ask Sophy: Why do I need a matchmaker? What’s wrong with me?  Her response is always: Nothing is wrong with you! You can afford me. Other Sophy tips and tricks we love: “Let go of the outcome,” and, “I love making connections between human beings that can help them in life. Whatever those may be.”

It’s happened– your Springtime in Paris new relationship has hit a significant bump in the road. You’re feeling the urge to say something 180 degrees from “you’re just so perfect and amazing” to your new love interest. Congratulations– this is your first opportunity for a growth power-up!

Quell the impulse to text “We need to talk.” If you’ve already typed it in, with your thumb hovering above “send,” aim for “delete” instead. No one wants to read that; no one wants to be forewarned of impending doom unless they’re watching a movie. You’ll only succeed in spurring the imminent arsenal of defense…

GIVE ME EVERYTHING YOU AM: “Love Again” by Run The Jewels

The other week, I was having a conversation with a friend of mine who is a new father – we’ll call him Cronus – and we were talking about parental instinct. He lowered his voice conspiratorially, considered the infant in his lap and said, “Sometimes I love my baby so much that I want to eat him. Is that normal?” 

Turns out, it’s not just normal–it’s science! Olfactory chemical signals–the smells of newborn babies have been linked to dopamine spikes in the brains of new mothers, essentially triggering the same neurological reward circuit activated when a very hungry person eats, or when a heroin addict shoots up…

5 Ways to Avoid the Cliff of Contemporary Dating

I have a friend who dates online… a lot. You could say she’s popular. She gets out again and again because she’s fabulous–which is obvious, even through a screen. Yet she arrives each time preloaded with every personal detail about her date–their hometown, full legal name, and family history–often even their annual income and whether or not they rent or own. IT IS RIDICULOUS. The internet is a fantastic tool for writing a thesis, but should it be used to compose a 15-page, pre-introduction memoir on a potential romantic interest’s life story?…
