Just Keep Swiping

What’s Your Sign?

This episode the ladies of SDU decided to turn to the higher sources for dating advice. If they can’t find love by trusting their gut, maybe there’s some truth in astrology. Turning to their in-house expert, Magic Mike, they dive into their zodiac signs a little deeper to learn what they really mean. And just in case there isn’t any truth to be found in the stars, the girls take a popular personality quiz to see if they can “find themselves” that way. Did it work? Or are they still just as lost as before? Listen to find out and DM us with your stores at @SomebodyDateUs or via email at somebodydateus@gmail.com.
