Carl Radke and Kyle Cooke Dish on Their NYC Dating Lives

What happens in the Summer House stays in the Summer House. So that might explain why Kyle Cooke and Carl Radke haven't exactly been shy about their hook-ups with a few lovely ladies this season. 

How to Watch

But come Labor Day, summer lovin' ends, and it's back to New York City and reality for this crew. So how do Kyle and Carl navigate the Big Apple dating scene in the fall, winter, and spring? 

Kyle told The Daily Dish that once September rolls around, New Yorkers start looking for that special someone to spend the colder months with. "In New York, in particular, not to sound super cheesy, but cuffing season is a real thing," he explained. "You hop on dating apps now that the summer's over. You're like, 'I don't want to be alone.' You might meet someone, and you kind of partner up, you know, cuff up. The winter's cold, the winter's long, and you know winter's coming, so that happens a lot." 

But once Memorial Day hits and summer approaches, the cuffs are off. "I've never done a summer house in a relationship. For me, I don't want to hurt anyone, I don't want to have a guilt trip looming over my head," Kyle said. "So that's what I did last year. I was in a good place with someone, Amanda [Batula], but I was just like, 'I don't know where the summer's gonna go. I don't know when we'd see each other.' And so cuffing season, oftentimes, comes to an end."

Living in city with 8 million other people, or as Kyle puts it, "where options are limitless and grass is always greener," helps to ease you out of cuffing season in the spring and summer, too. 

Though Carl agreed that cuffing season is real, for him, fall is the time to get back to business. "I'd say my dating life in New York City after the summer's over, I mean, you've got to go back and focus on your jobs and what you're doing. I mean, we invest a lot of money, a lot of time in going out to the Hamptons," he told The Daily Dish. "During the week, Monday through Thursday, is balls-to-the-wall work, focus on that." 

Kyle said that "sometimes having a girlfriend helps you focus during the offseason," but Carl hasn't had the same experience. "I have sometimes steered away from getting in relationships solely because of career stuff and because I wanted to focus on my job," he said. 

The Summer House buds differed in their opinion of dating apps, too. "So there's a lot of options in New York, as Kyle said. I actually don't do dating apps. I think they're lame. I like meeting people in person," Carl said. "Going out and meeting people is fun. But at this point in my life right now, I kind of want to just focus on career, making money, progressing, and I feel like someone will organically find me at the same time." 

No matter what methods they use, we have a feeling that these guys are going to do just fine in the dating game. Watch them on the prowl, below.
