We've been following eight listeners as they've dated this summer—this week, we do a final check-in as the warm weather winds down.

Go back and listen to the entire series at deathsexmoney.org/hotdates. And we know that sometimes, being single can be more fun than it seems! Head on over to our interactive Google spreadsheet where you can share the ways you treat yourself well when you're on your own, and see how other listeners do.
