First up is Cherry, a widow who was married for 24 years and wants tips on how to get begin dating again. She shares she is scared of dating, and says she will take the first step (like making a profile on a dating website), but will then delete it out of fear. She also admits if she is set up by a mutual friend that she'll have trouble getting out of the car. She reveals her fears she might be too old to date.
Kiaundra notes that dating has changed in the last 2 decades, but stresses Cherry (or anyone looking to date again) will never be "too old" to date and meet new people. She feels Cherry might be allowing self-sabotaging behavior to get in her way. She suggests taking the pressure off dating and urges her to not think that 1 date needs to lead to something serious, like another marriage. She also suggests first working on building a friendship and getting to know the person.
We also joined by Lisa, who feels she tends to end up dating a "mama's boy." and wants to know how she can avoid repeating this dating mistake and also how to spot red flags for someone who might not have a healthy relationship with their mother.
Kiaundra suggests looking at someone’s patterns and behaviors and she feels if someone had a positive relationship with their mother that this is a good sign. She also notes if someone treats their mother poorly or speaks about them negatively that this could be a red flag about how they might behave in a relationship.
