Oh My God Real Life Podcast #6
Thu, 25 Oct 2007 01:27:00 GMT [download/play]

Welcome to this 6th episode of OMGRL where Jenna and I give our wonderfully unprofessional advice to 5 lucky listeners.

- We get a question from Nathan regarding that age-old rejection line "You're more like a brother to me"
- Chiyo's parents just don't understand about his gaming. And he's not addicted, he swears!
- Kraig from Scotland has too many eggs in one basket, and needs some advice on juggling his hobbies, interests and schoolwork.
- Meadar + Myspace = "But he hasn't even met her yet!"
- And we hear back from "Robert", who provides us with a fabulous follow-up to his original email a few shows back. We LOVE follow-ups!

If you'd like to be included on the next episode's advice segment, send your email OR audio questions to

The theme song for OMG-RL is "Real Life Drama" by Rackjaw.

Episode 6 Discussion Thread

'Another nice show' by Trixor

Hey Sean and Jenna.. okay, FINE.. Shawn and Jenna.

This was another fine episode! I loved it yet again, and i am very happy to see Jenna as the official Co-Host. 'Circle the airport of your soul'

And as for that 'Robert' guy, i think he dug a hole for himself telling his wife what happened, or did not happen. I mean, every time something bad is going to happen between them, she's going to bring this up. She'll probably be like "Why don't you go to that girl you met online if it's so bad for you here!"
Some things are best kept secret, if not for the others sake, then for your own, and for the sake of future fights you are DEFINITELY going to have.
Those were my words of wisdom, use them with discretion, for they do NOT come around often. ;)


Feel free to talk about this in the next episode.. i won't be offended. heheh

Robert did a good job telling his wife...

Couples should never keep these types of things from the other person. Yes, when brought up they can create a jealous, dramatic mood that lasts quite a while, if not forever. However, this is all based upon the reactions and the maturity of the persons involved.

When someone feels attracted to another person outside of their partner, it means they are desiring something they are not getting. This can and SHOULD be discussed to make a happier and stronger relationship in the long run. If one keeps these types of thoughts to themselves it will create a bit of tension over time. Pressure just builds up and up and up, damaging the relationship anyways.

If the couple is unable to talk about the situation and see why exactly it has occurred, then I'm afraid to say they were doomed from the get go. Some people just end up not being that "great" for each other after time passes. It's natural progression, and it's not a bad thing.

Yes, admitting lust outside of your relationship will often create heartbreak, but it also reinforces trust and understanding. Never be scared of what might happen if you admit the truth. This is YOUR life, and you deserve to live it how you want. You can be mindful of other people's feelings, but do not live your life depending on them. THE TRUTH IS THE BREAD AND BUTTER OF A RELATIONSHIP.

I listened to your show today and I must admit, you give really sound advice. You two have a good pair of heads on your shoulders, although the show is becoming a bit Dr. Phillish, instead of being gaming related. The best thing about your show is the constant smile I have on my face when I'm listening to you guys. And Shawn, you better watch it or you'll be Jenna's co-host, cause she's just hilarious.

My question was supposed to be a traditonal boy girl relationship..I guess I didn't re-read my message before I posted, I was talking about asking out women, not men. That's why I wanted Jenna's point of view, because she is also a women.

My bad -_-

Bah! Ignore that Dr Phill comment! We've got more than enough "gaming related" podcasts out there already! This podcast is called OMG-RL for a reason! Its about RL! Please don't change a thing!

I hope you guys receive my email regarding Nathans "youre like a brother to me" predicament! It is a view from the other side of that situation.
