Episode 21 - How Not to Get an Arranged Marriage

With little to no action on the matches front, Star and Bobby try to give Mooli some (unrequited) advice in improving communication and to make better first impressions with his matches. Mooli has some objections on using their experience from dating verbatim in the Arranged Marriage arena, but there is no doubt that he has room to improve! We also discuss potential Honeymoon periods in arranged marriage and if this is really going to be an issue for our Mooli (39:06).
