I would just go, I would just go straight for the jugular, but yeah, there's no easy way to break up.
I got another dating question for you, Tyler, it comes from Liz. I mean, all I can think of with you saying 'straight for the jugular' is the piece of steak stuck, so be careful. The piece of steak stuck in my esophagus? I can't--I mean, I don't wanna gross you out, but like, the worst part about this--when it happens, like the steak getting stuck in my esophagus, is that I can't swallow water, like I can't swallow my own spit even, so I just like, puke up my own spit every three or four minutes for hours until I finally get this endoscopy done.
It was super annoying. You know what, for some people that's a turn on, I'm sure, so, one man's trash, another man's treasure. I mean, I would do great with a very specific subset of the population. When my esophagitis is acting up. I have to say, I haven't had any problems since then. Alright, let's answer this question from Liz, who writes, "Dear John and Hank, I recently decided to try online dating. One thing I like about it is that you answer a bunch of question and then they do fancy calculations to determine how much of a match you are with other users.
Aren't you then too alike? What range of match percentage is actually the ideal amount? I found it to be accurately named just okay. For me, though, if you're looking at percentage, like, sure, you can agree that you both want a dog, sure you can agree that you both love a cookout, but like. Is any--are any questions really going to accurately detect sense of humor or personality, like, just a sense of charm, you feeling butterflies, like, I don't know if I could ever boil down a successful relationship to a handful of questions, let alone questions.
I think, over the course of a few dates, you'll go through many more than that, and some of those things, like, are not dealbreakers, so I don't know if on OKCupid, you can weight the importance of a question or if it weights it for you, so I don't even know if I believe in the system to begin with, so I don't know if I can reckon a percentage that's accurate or worthwhile to pursue. Yeah, I'm inclined to agree. My feeling about OKCupid is, when I look at my relationship with my wife, you know, I suspect that we would not have been a match in a lot ways that OKCupid considers important, but the things that are really important to Sarah and me are, you know, some of the things you talked about like charm, sense of humor, the fact that we have shared values, which is incredibly important and really difficult for algoriths to understand.
Like, don't worry about it too much. I was really, really terrible at internet dating, Tyler, back in the, gosh, the era, when I was on internet dating. It was different then, like, the vibe of it was different. There was no Grindr or anything, but I did meet people from the internet and went on dates with them, almost always to the same German restaurant, which, looking back, maybe wasn't the best call, and I did have a couple of like, semi-serious relationships emerge out of those experiences, but oh man, it was hard.
I--my experience with internet or app dating, I have found--I just, and maybe this is me personally, I just find that if I meet somebody organically, I feel like we get into a better rhythm from the start. I feel like, if you're on the internet learning everything about somebody, it's a curated amount of what they wanna share and who they want to be perceived as, and sometimes that really messes with maybe the accuracy of the match, especially in a system of like, sending five pictures and that's what represents you.
Five pictures that I might pick for myself might not be the five pictures my soulmate might think represent me, you know what I mean? And when you meet somebody organically, you're seeing them as a fully fledged human and how they're mannerisms come into play and maybe that doesn't translate on, I don't know, in a digital space, so I take the presentation of a human on a social media app or on OKCupid as a grain of salt.
I mean, it's who they wanna be and it's what they think they are. That has no relation to how you would perceive them in a romantic sense. So can I tell you a story that will make me seem super crazy old? Does it start with an Ok--I mean, does it start with Yahoo Chats chatroom? It occurs long before Yahoo Chats. So back inmy dad brought home Compuserve from like, a store, because that's where you bought the internet back then, and I started using the internet-- T: For context, I was three years old right then.
That's great to hear. I was a teenager, I was like 13 or 14, 15 maybe. And, um, I started using the internet to talk to people, mostly other students in these forums where we would use our real names, there were no screen names yet or anything like that, and it was all text based.
I started talking to this young woman that summer, a really fascinating, smart kid about my age, and we continued to talk for off and on for about three years. It was just not, it wasn't within the culture of the internet to exchange pictures, and when we finally met in gosh, I guess it was October ofI had never seen her before when I drove across the country to Maryland to meet her.
I had never seen a single picture of her and I drove across the country to meet her and I mean, it was truly love at first sight and we dated very, very happily for many years and we had a wonderful relationship. Despite having never seen pictures of each other when we meet three years after we started talking.
I know, isn't that weird? It didn't seem weird at the time. Well, in hindsight, I'm like, girl, you're getting catfished. As somebody who has hosted an episode of Catfished, this is not looking good for you. I'm like waiting for you to show up, and it's like me, or coughcough, an old man. No, no, no, no. No, she was lovely. She's doing great, too. You know, I dated-- J: It didn't work out, obviously. I dated, when I was um, maybe in middle school, in a video game I used to play, and we used to hunt together, it was like an MMORPG, and we would go like, hunting, we'd be on the same like, video game schedule, like, playing, we even in the game, we got married, and I never saw what she looked like.
I, like, had a crush on her, I guess, just like the concept of her personality, umm Alright, Tyler, we've got a question that comes from Alianah, and I apologize, Alianah, if I am mispronouncing your name, although in the context of your question, it's sort of appropriate for me to mispronounce your name. This gives me anxiety, since I'm not good at remembering names, and I don't want to offend anybody by getting their names wrong. Do you have any advice on how I can easily remember the names of my new coworkers?
Thank you in advance. Oh my God, this is me. This is, I, like, I would love any advice. I am so bad at names, even if I-- J: Even if I'm positive about somebody's name, I am so insecure about it that I don't trust my own gut. I have a friend, a legitimate friend, and I know, I know, I know that his name is David, but when the time comes to pull the trigger, I can never do it.
Are we the same human? Because there's just a little part of me that's like, is it David? Or could it be Davis? On every red carpet, I think I know who a celebrity is, and as they approach, I'm like, heyy, girlll. Well, 'cause it's so risky. I mean, hitting the wrong name is such an epic disaster and just saying hello is such a relatively small thing and, but if you say the wrong name of a celebrity, first off, Tyler, I mean, you and I are both, let's face it, C-listers?
I would be delighted to be a C-lister. And so you know from experience that when someone calls you by the wrong name, it does rather set the conversation off on the wrong foot. Well, I don't--well, not for me. I think there is a--I am very eager to forgive based on how they go about the situation. Like, if they are genuinely embarrassed, then I'm like, it is literally no problem.
My biggest fear is always when I'm meeting somebody and I say it's nice to meet you and they say, oh, we've met before. I think that sets-- J: That's why I never--but I never correct someone if I know I've met them before, I never wanna make that correction, because-- T: What's it gonna do other than make them feel terrible?
So as far as trying to remember somebody's name, to answer the question, remember in, um, what's that movie, House Bunny or something? We can't remember the name of it. I think it's--House Bunny? I think with Anna Faris?
There's a character, Anna Faris is meeting these new people and to remember all their names, they say, oh, hi, my name is JoAnn, and she says, JoAnn, and that's how she remembers her name. It's the most iconic scene from the movie. So maybe that can be a way you can do it. That's a really, really good idea. So you just pronounce their names back to them in a low growl and you will find that in addition to remembering everyone's names, you will meet fewer and fewer people as your life goes on.
I actually have a genuine piece of advice for this question, though. Um, what I do is I ask them how they spell it, and that's how I remember.
Who is Tyler Oakley dating? Tyler Oakley boyfriend, husband
So I'm like, okay, Sarah with an H or without an H? And then I'll always remember it's Sarah with no H. And then when I see them again, I'm like, Sara with no H! Oh, I'm just so terrible at remembering peoples' names.
I feel awful about it. Like, even people I really like or I know well, I'm just terrible at it. You know what, also, I think I wish I were better at? Once you meet them, once they tell you their name, repeat it back to them within that conversation an obscene amount of times, more than seems normal or necessary, and I think you're more likely to remember it and be-- J: I do think you're more likely to remember it, but I also think if you do it way more than is necessary, people start to feel weird.
They start to be like, boy, I haven't heard my name this many times in a loooong time. I'd rather make them weird--I'd rather make them feel weird once in that first conversation than be like, heyy girllll and then always be like who the bleep is that? I knew we weren't gonna get through this episode without a bleep and sure enough, we aren't. Oh, I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I'm sorry. I know that that's your favorite part of the podcast? There you go, Tyler. Though I don't know.
I don't--I didn't--I didn't get into the books or the movies, I'm sorry. I don't know either. I know, whatever, okay, I get it. I'll just ask you a different question so that people don't have to judge you for that horror-- T: No, you know what, they should accept me for who I am. Not everyone read Goosebumps. Not everyone read The Bible. And not everyone's gonna read your favorite book and you're gonna deal with that. I lo--you know what, I love that answer. It's very Tyler Oakley.
That said, you should really read Harry Potter, it's great. You should really what? Oh my God, shut up. And it's got so many memorable stories in it and it just tells a very true and moving story. But Harry Potter is also excellent. Okay, well, as somebody who read Harry Potter, do you think Voldemort pees? I mean, I think it's an interesting-- T: Do you think he pees? What I find interesting about the question is that you know, nobody ever uses the bathroom in any books or movies.
It's like this part of life that we have largely excluded from our art, and maybe with good reason, but um, but yeah, I mean, I assume that Voldemort goes to the bathroom. I don't know, I have a full chapter in my book about fecal matters, so. You were the artist who was willing to go where JK Rowling was not. I mean, I think that's the difference. To ask though if he uses the bathroom is to ask if he is at his core, human, and I think that's a bigger issue that you have to grapple in this dang little book or whatever this Harry Potter is.
Yeah, that's actually a really good point, like, ultimately, like, going to the bathroom is mostly about how we assign personhood and how we like, think of like, lives. For instance, we never think of Stormtroopers going to the bathroom, because I don't think we really think of them as people, but um, so the answer to your question is that we do not know. Would you like to know what happened on Mars this week?
Usually, Hank delivers the news from Mars, but it falls to me this week, so can I tell you what happened on Mars? Can I guess what happens?
Meet the new "The Amazing Race" cast
Please do guess what happened on Mars. And um, you know what I like to imagine? I feel like, in the grand scheme of things, I just hope that out there, not only do I--I'm pretty certain that there's aliens and things, but there--I just want them all to be gay. Is that what's going on on Mars?
I definitely read um, some fiction that imagines that world and it's been fascinating to read. The news from Mars is as follows: There was a black smudge found on Mars which is bad news because that black smudge was the Mars reconnaisance orbiter that was supposed to land on Mars, but instead appears to have crashed and turned into a gigantic black smudge. Was there anybody on board? Is there--was it just kinda like a little machine thing?
Oh no, no, no, no. There was no one on board.
In fact, no one is allowed to go to Mars until the year or later, because Hank and I made a bet that no humans will get--I bet him that humans will not make it to Mars by and if I win that bet, the podcast will be renamed Dear John and Hank in the yearso I am putting all of my resources right now toward keeping humans an Earth-only species for at least the next, you know, 12 years. Well, you're gonna have to fight me, because I'm eager to go to space.
I'm like, ready to leave Earth. You can go to space all you want. No, but like, I wanna go everywhere in space. Yeah, the amazing space, that's what I want. Oh, no, no, no, I would not go to space if you paid me all the money in the world. It just sounds terrifying. Honestly, even if I died in space, what a great last line of my Wikipedia.
Like, tell me it's not. It is a good last l--just, "He died in space. I was hoping you were going to say what happened in Mars was JoAnn, the new Lady Gaga album, streamed from Mars, 'cause it just came out, everyone should buy it. That was--I mean, you squeezed in a Lady Gaga reference knowing that we were nearing the end of the podcast.
It would have been easier had I just gone the route of "Did you know Lady Gaga Tweeted gagainspace back a couple years ago, and so everyone thought she was going to space but then all of passed and on the last day ofI Tweeted her, I said, "Girl, whatever happened to gagainspace, why aren't you going? She's gonna hit Mars before I mean, I would not, at this point in my life, underestimate Lady Gaga. She is a tremendously talented person.
Did I ever tell you about the time that we sat on the same bench. Okay, so Lady Gaga drove, I believe, drove the Pace car or was involved in some way in the Indianapolis last year. And I go to the Indianapolis every year, because I am, you know, a good Indiana boy, and so I was sitting on a bench at the pagoda and I looked over and there was a beautiful person wearing a fire suit next to me, with like, long flowing hair, and I was like, that's a very unusual situation to see a really beautiful person with a--wearing a fire suit.
But I didn't think much of it. The race was about to start, so I was pretty focused on the race, and then I noticed that this person was wearing unbelievably just fabulous beautiful astonishing shoes, like, amazing high heels.
And I was like, that's super weird. A fire suit, amazing high heels, and then I was like, oh, that's Lady Gaga. Did it change your life? I mean, it was pretty intense. I--I had to fight the urge to, you know, to have a celebrity encounter.the worst grindr messages i've ever received
I had to fight the urge to be like, can I have a picture or to say hi or to whatever. I just had to--I had to be cool, so I was cool, and I'm proud of myself for being cool.
That's pretty much my takeaway. So you didn't tell her you loved ArtPop? I did not tell her that I loved ArtPop. Alright, we're moving on to the news from AFC Wimbledon. Tyler, since you may not be familiar with AFC Wimbledon, they are a football club currently playing in the third tier of English football in South London, and we sponsor them.
Are you their actual and literal biggest fan? I might be their biggest fan. So it sounds like they're your biggest fan. No, no, no, I pay for that privilege. Me forcing anyone to be a fan of me. I'm just making them love me. Okay, so AFC Wimbledon, this is their first season in League One, they were not expected to do well, and in fact, like, most people thought that they would likely be relegated at the end of this season back to League Two, where they've been for the last several seasons, but instead, AFC Wimbledon has gone on this insane winning streak.
Last week, they beat Peterborough one-nil, a goal from John Meades, and suddenly they are in sixth place in the table out of 24 teams, they are in sixth place, which is also the last playoff spot. So if the season were to end today, which it won't because there's still, mm, you know, like 31 games to play, they would finish in the playoffs.
There's a long, long way to go, but that is very exciting and nobody could have predicted this level of success, so I am stoked. You know, I kind of saw it coming. I saw it within them. So when you say nobody could have predicted, it's kind of an insult to my, you know.
I appreciate the faith that you have in AFC Wimbledon.
