Dating and Relationships Column

Recently, a reader named Beth reached out with an idea…

Would Cup of Jo ever consider doing a dating advice column? I have loved hearing insights from Joanna over the years, and more recently Caroline, and truly find myself wanting both of your reactions to other, real life situations. As a professional woman in her early 30s who lives alone, I’m overwhelmed contending with what dating is going to look like for the foreseeable future due to the pandemic – and yet, some of the same old challenges haven’t seemed to change a bit. Just thought I’d ask!

The answer is an enthusiastic YES!

Since we love talking about relationships, we’re excited to roll out a regular dating column. In the coming weeks, Joanna, Caroline and Kim will take turns weighing in on dating, marriage and relationships (and all those gray areas in between). And we want to hear your thoughts, as well!

Do you have a question about creating a dating profile? How to deal with a person sending mixed signals? Communication struggles with your partner? How to keep the sparks alive? Whatever you may be wondering, we’d like to hear from you.

Please leave your questions in the comments below. Or, if you’d prefer to ask us privately, you can also email hello@cupofjo.com with the subject line “Dating Column.”

Thank you so much!

P.S. A helpful piece of dating advice, running into an ex, and how to know your partner is the one.
