In their first ever live event, Cher and James hang out with great human being, Sharlene King, about online dating, distinguishing what a good profile can be, and how to be yourself, without freaking out a potential suitor. In Open Mic, our hosts debate with Sharlene over the online dating best practices, first impressions, and non-creepy Twitter DM sliding. Finally, everyone talks about what made 2015 great.
