I can't even relate to online dating. :D Back when I was dating, if you didn't meet someone...you didn't meet them. Online was not a thing. I could totally relate to the stress of online dating. Geez! That said, even at my 'hormonal peak' I was only marginally interested in the dating and romance thing. :D Much more fun, imo, to hang out with friends on your wavelength. Makes perfect sense to me.
Soooo funny!! Joel you are so sweet and your soul mate is out there. Keep faith that you will meet them when you are supposed to. My question is Joel are you going to set Lia up with someone to return the favor??. Best of luck to both of you.
Sorry, but I can’t imagine any woman that would be OK with the relationship that you and Lia have. It’s a wonderful friendship, but it would get in the way of another woman getting to know Joel as deeply and thoroughly as Lia has. It’s just human nature. Also, you two are too Handsy with each other and maybe I’m from old-school but I wouldn’t like my boyfriend in bed with his friend., Even if y’all aren’t doing anything while you are traveling. So, as a result of any new relationship on either side, it would probably ruin your vlogging
Whatever Young Lady is "Worthy Enough", & I mean that with the Utmost Love & Respect to Joel, is the Luckiest Female Possible! Lia, you are Irreplaceable in Joe's (and our) Life! "Skinny Mates Forever"!
Having watched so many of your videos, it seems that special person you are looking for is sitting right beside you. Your significant other should be your best friend. You guys would be amazing together.
Many people in the comment section are curious about Joel's sexual orientation ( as am I) but regardless of labels I can totally relate to what he's saying. Also, why are American commenters saying the term ' Vanilla' means sexually boring. It means boring and bland personality. Same as it means in the UK I guess ( I'm American )
Britain women are stuck up, and in a class system, I’m born in the UK, and find them a hard act to follow, some are stuck up, if in the wrong social circles, then the Would not be available. I’ve been alone for some years now, got stuck in my ways, and no longer desperate for them, as liked my own company, Britain or English, born here in London, isn’t important, but exercise caution with this women, as can be dangerous to men.
Okay, you 2 ... cut the crap !!! LOL You know that this is how it starts ... first you become acuaintences, then friends, now you're business partners .... you mind as well get on with it now and become life partners too, unless, of coarse, one or the other of you are batting for the other team .... ????? ;)
I love how much fun you have together and crack each other up (that makes me laugh). I think a follow-up video is needed with an update on how Lia did matching people to Joel, and how those dates went.
I’ve been doing marriage counseling for a long time and I have to say something... I don’t care what you two are telling each other but you belong together. My wife of 21 years was before we married and is still my best friend. There is no better way to do it. So there Lia...that’s Rusty being matchmaker. Lol
Sorry if this is too personal of a question, but why AREN’T you two dating? Your chemistry is amazing and you both seem to genuinely care for each other. Those are probably the two best foundations for a romantic relationship. Break the stereotype that friends can’t/shouldn’t date each other; it’s 2018! I think due to the reasons I listed above and the fact that you guys make your videos on a bed, and the bed has the letters J & R at the front, gives off the impression that you guys are married. The bed is already a very intimate place, but then you add the letters sign and it just makes it that much more of a “couples” space. Just my two cents...
Yes, I know this is an old video. I'm slowly going through them all, so if I haven't caught up on current affairs (so to speak), then never you mind.
It sounds to me like Joel is trying too hard. The best romances start out as friendships (which is probably why everyone thinks you two should be dating. It also sounds like Joel is "low maintenance." There's nothing wrong with that. At least you recognize that someone who is high maintenance isn't for you.
Not for nothing, Joel, mate, guys have a shelf life. If you don't get cracking, You'll be left all to your lonesome, while everyone else has matched up! They'll be getting on with their lives while you'll be doing the vlog's by your lonesome. Please note, I'm not telling you to start power dating. But, yes, stop letting grass grow under your feet.
Before you know it, you'll be in your thirties, and be talking to your mates, and thinking "It's okay, I'm still young enough to start a family," and meanwhile, one of your mates will mention that he is now a grandfather, and you'll be gobsmacked.
18 +18 = 36 (yes, it IS possible)
As a new subscriber binge watching your old videos, I know this video is old, but I feel I need to say something here. Regardless of Joel's sexuality, I think most people who just look at him can agree that he is incredibly attractive. Then after watching a few videos, you get a sense of his beautiful personality, which is somewhere along the lines of easy-going, open-minded, kind-hearted and maybe some sarcastic humor... all very attractive attributes. No reason he should be single, right?
When Joel admitted that he had only been on two dates in his adult life, considering he's probably mid-20's? and very attractive, I immediately recognized something familiar. I am an asexual/aromantic, but it took me a long time to figure that out. I spent most of my 20's going on arranged dates, using dating apps, always wondering why I couldn't make it last. Friends and family always said things like "I just don't know why you're not married yet" and "You're way too pretty to not ever have a boyfriend" and so on. As a now 37 year old woman, I've had maybe four real boyfriends short term and about 20-25 sexual partners, mostly just one or two times per partner. Judge me if you must on those numbers, but I was trying to figure myself out and that required a lot of trial and error. I also have had several male friends that I felt a strong platonic bond, best friends even, but nothing more.
Basically, I see a little bit of my younger self in you, Joel. Have you considered that maybe sex and/or relationships may not be your vibe? (lol slight reference to another video) Honestly, is the dating scene your vibe? Because even though dating and relationships are expected of you at your age, it's 2018 and it's completely okay if you honestly really don't want to date or have romantic partners. Think hard about what makes you happy, because that's all that really matters, social standards be damned. Sometimes we have to make our own rules.
And just like anytime I leave a comment anywhere about asexuality, I'm always happy to answer any questions anyone might have via private message, and private convos are always private. I know it can be confusing, and it's different for everyone, but I'm willing to get into my own personal details if that helps someone understand the small community of non-sexuals.
Cheers, love you two!
This is the first video i watch from your channel and all i want to say is that you are both vere beautiful charming and lovely!
But for some reason i felt a "connection" with the girl.
Generally you dont look british i would say more medditeranean or something.
You look so familiar its somewhat creepy.😂
Anyways greetings from Greece😘
You remind me of my gay best friend...i made a great gay wing man...before being lesbian was popular here now lesbians hit on me so I have to have a gay wing man to get straight men to compete...ugh..people don't get being a best friends that's the opposite sex...its a hard thing...people don't get it...but if your older or younger for some reason it's a sexual thing...ugh...i ha e all male best friends that I am NOT sexual with that I went through theater and film.classes woth...there is a bong amount artists that baffles normal people... you remind me of Californian thesbians at their best!!
I'd go on a date with Joel as long as it's totally non romantic and funny...can I go on a date with both of you at the same time?? That would be the ultimate..but no after date threesomes...and frankly joel...im with you I don't date either...it confuses me and not interesting...in most cases...
I know it's way late or whatever, but I thought I should voice my constructive feedback. I've been watching a lot of your videos and I have enjoyed most of them, and have been deciding weither to sub or not. I've found I have subbed too soon then loose interest depending on certain factors. One being misleading titles such as this one. Like others I was excited for and expecting a little bit of dating culture within the UK, but instead it was a 10 min ad... Or half ad, half Joel's dating life or lack thereof. I hope you don't do this very often, while it had it's charm in its own way, I was hoping for more. Other than this one though I have enjoyed your videos, and if there aren't too many like this I will probably subscribe.
When I First started viewing yur show, i immediately told my friends, various closet-Anglophiles. First they came back with "So where is this Joe-landlia? Up the Baltic Coast between Latvia & Estonia somewheres? Are they new members of NATO??"

Joel & Lia, this video reminds me so much of the movie "When Harry met Sally" from 1989 starring Meg Ryan and Billy Crystal. It is a great movie. If you haven't seen the movie I think you will enjoy it. "What I'm saying is — and this is not a come-on in any way, shape or form — is that men and women can't be friends because the sex part always gets in the way."
Joel reminds me of this actor Joel McHale when he was playing the character of Jeff Winger in the American TV sitcom ''Community." It took me about 6 videos in to realize why I was so drawn to him as if I knew him already. lol
