Once upon a time, long before FRUITLOOTS, our Co-Founder David spent his days and nights as a romance enthusiast, date coach, and matchmaker. (Did you see him on Bravo?!) During this time he created Finding-Cupid.com and the Finding Cupid Podcast, where he gave advice and shared his adventures about dating in Los Angeles.
But as life goes, chapters will end, and new ones begin. If you are lucky enough, as some of the best RomComs in movie history have taught us, two unsuspecting people (or passions in this case) can collide in a beautiful way and create the most perfect relationship.
When it came time to create "The Love Collection" we couldn't help but force David to brush off his Cupid Wings and bring a little bit of love to FRUITLOOTS!
As a special treat to all our followers, we reunited his old podcast team and asked them to share a little bit of advice about love, life, dating, and of course gifting.
We hope you enjoy this special reunion and the guests we invited to the show. Tell us what your favorite episode was in the comments below!

EPISODE 5: A Matchmakers Advice featuring Kara Laricks of Three Day Rule Matchmaking
LGBTQ Matchmaker and Date Coach with Three Day Rule Matchmaking, Kara Laricks joins David and Matt to discuss the overwhelming demand for Matchmakers in 2022. Gone are the days when hiring a Matchmaker was considered very "niche" or only for "desperate" people. Now daters are hiring Matchmakers the same way that they hire trainers or therapists. The post-lockdown and COVID world has taught us to invest in mind, body, and soul - so now it's time for the heart.
