Molly dating com
“I’ve been waiting like three months to get approved for this.
Now I can finally date dudes on my level.” In the new show, Rae is the titular “awkward” black girl navigating a mediocre job at a nonprofit and an unsatisfying long-term relationship; Orji is her BFF Molly, a successful lawyer still searching for the right guy.
Based on the six episodes HBO sent press, it’s also one of the best shows about friendship and romance since (without the whimsical, over-the-top quality that so often permeated Carrie’s Manolo-clad gallop through the New York dating scene).
(which has yet to air, so light spoilers ahead), Issa’s best friend Molly (Yvonne Orji) calls Issa up to share her good news; she has finally been accepted to the League, the exclusive dating app for “high-achieving” singles.Issa points out that Molly is finally seeing a guy she really likes — plus, didn’t she say she was done with dating apps? “I said I was done with shitty-ass dating apps,” she retorts, pointing out that the guy she’s seeing doesn’t even have a college degree.But the show also captures the soul-destroying, round-robin quality of dating in L.A., as time and time again we watch Molly meet someone new only to have her hope dashed.
