Lauren and Katie, college frenemies with a mutual good friend, move in together at age 28 in order to afford an amazing Gramercy Park apartment.
In fact they revel in their power and it's quite an empowering, if not slightly wacky, message to bring to our screens.
But my absorption in the merits of Golden Delicious and Washington Reds is but a cunning charade. Flirting has been Jean’s specialist subject for more than a decade, after doing a masters degree in social anthropology.
Not only has she produced an entire book on the subject (The Flirt Interpreter), but she runs ‘Flirtology’ courses. There’s a two-session Quick Fix for £299; a three-session promotion called Bag A Babe For Valentine’s (‘babe’ referring to either sex) at £399; and a three-month Ready For Change programme at £900.
The overwhelming majority of Arizona Connections advertisers are trustworthy and well-intentioned.
Nevertheless, it's very important to take the same common sense precautions when meeting someone for the first time.
’Then she asks what I’m doing to improve my chances of meeting someone, and suggests a big party where everybody brings a single friend, adding: ‘You need to spend more time in places where you can start up conversations without expectations.’This, it turns out, is largely what Jean’s ‘flirtology’ is about — not being coquettish, but simply going to places where there are other people, and talking to them.
The idea is meeting as many potential partners as possible in the hope one will click.
‘People are just expected to know this stuff, and they think everyone else is born good at it.’Indeed, the boom in online dating and the rise of so-called ‘silver splitters’, who divorce in midlife, means more of us than ever are struggling on the dating scene: one in five women over 45 is now single.
This is not to say she advocates hooking up with a short, fat pauper.
It all revolves around two former-college "frenemies" (I really hate that term, but whatever ) who both need to find a roommate so they can stay in New York and live the "American Dream" which is when mutual friend Jesse (played by an hilariously camp Justin Long) forces them to move in together.
The two women, strapped for cash, very quickly set up a phone-sex-line and realise a very lucrative, if not slightly filthy, business opportunity.
