Anna Faris Is Unqualified

I am a solid 3.4 student with a major in English from the University of Washington. I've also been asked what my SAT score was and it was 1060. It only took five years of dorm/rave life for me to accrue the life knowledge I have received. I’m a Sagittarius, which means I’m super creative and stubborn; but there are walls I need to break down because I always want to leap over the boundaries that make me climb ladders and roofs. I’m agreeable and delightful. I also have incredible leadership skills and following abilities. And, I have 20/20 vision so I’m an eagle eye. I could not love all of you more and please e-mail me at questions@annafarisisunqualified.com with your pressing relationship questions.

Part 2 picks up with calls from two Unqualified listeners in need of relationship advice. First, Anna, Sim and Paul talk to a woman whose husband is a terrible gift-giver.  Listen in as Paul enlightens her about the "Languages of Love" and the gang brainstorms about how to point him in the right direction. Next, they call Brittany, a woman who has been involved for six months with a stand-up comedian she met on a dating app. Paul and Anna leave no stone unturned in trying to help her figure out whether she likes him enough to commit to a possible long-distance relationship and, if so, how to talk to him about their relationship...as illustrated through another hilarious role-play. Their advice may or may not be good, but one thing is for sure: Brittany's boyfriend is going to be in a state of shock by the time he finishes listening to this episode!
