When it comes to dating and relationships, it can be a lot of fun but also overwhelming in this day and age. For some, finding and keeping love has been easy. For others, not so much. In this episode of “Dana Being Dana,” some friends and lifestyle coaches join Dana to help viewers navigate the trials and tribulations of the dating world, from setting expectations to online matchmaking to getting over heartbreak.
“Falling love can be scary but I believe that it’s worth it because falling in love is the best feeling in the world,” says Dana Michelle.
“You have to be safe where online dating and anything online can be so easily manipulated,” says relationship coach Dr. Paden Quincy. “But [it’s] a great tool to use if it’s used well.”
“I’m looking for someone that’s going to accept me for who I am because that’s the only person I know how to be and somebody who I can accept who they are,” says Cissy Whitfield. “I’ve got to take their good with their bad.”
