  1. How do you get on a dating site the” RIGHT WAY”?! Which site has Honest, God fearing, Respectful, Nice, Professional, Family orientated, Energetic MEN in the age group of 35-40?! Any single man at this age range are obviously single for a major reasons. I am a 36 year old energetic, single mother who has never been married, no boyfriend, and honestly has not had that butterfly feeling of love since high school!
    I have recently turned to dating sites and it has been scary! I also cant force myself to pay memberships for what I have seen so far.. why is this hard? Please help!

    1. Hi Tiffany! First, the best thing to do is to work on shifting your mindset about online dating and men your age! There are great men everywhere – it takes work to find them (along with patience, positivity and perseverance – the 3 Big “Ps” as I call them). Paying for sites is also OK – most come out to less than $1/day – which is a small price to think about if you find your man! Dating is a process that takes time, and it will pay off. Love exists for everyone that wants it, and I know there are many men out there that would be lucky to find you. Check out our tips at http://www.smartdatingacademy.com as well – you’ll find helpful blogs and videos there. Wishing you all the best in love – Bela

  2. I been single for 20 years . I don’t know how to go about dating anyone. I try the dating site but its gotten scary . pof.zoosk. okcupi. Etc I am not a club . So I am 61 I don’t look my age . this even a worth problem because I have younger men hitting on me. I have two sons both their father were younger then me 5 and 8 . got engage he went to jail and other was abuser. I go to church there no one my age
    Need to meet a serious man but funny .enjoy family and friends.

    1. Hi Wilda! 61 years young and ready to find love – this is a great place to be and it sounds like you’re a beauty. It’s not necessary to go to a club to meet someone – but be open to good men everywhere – online or in real life. It sounds like you have accepted men into your life that don’t treat you well – this is an issue that you may consider working with a therapist and/or coach about. At Smart Dating Academy, we often have people come to us because they have dating patterns – and seek out unhealthy partners again and again. I wish you the best of luck in your journey. Bela

  3. I am “paranoid” about dating sites. Which ones are suggested?
    How could I take this journey with less apprehension:)

    1. Hi Lesley! Don’t be paranoid – instead, take that energy and put some time into educating yourself on how to online date the right way. I’ve done a lot of tips on Steve’s site about how to get online, how to identify catfishers, etc. And, check out our site http://www.smartdatingacademy.com. If you’re feeling very fearful, perhaps you can consider creating a supportive group of experienced friends around you that can uplift you through this journey, hiring a therapist, or enlisting the help of a dating coach. All will help you. Sending love and light! Bela

  4. Could you send me something on how do you end a relationship with someone who keeps hurting you .

    1. Hi Joann! We have a tip sheet on our site about the clues you are dating a narcissist. That may give you the confidence you need in knowing this person is bad for you. I can tell you from the clients I’ve worked with for over a decade, the best thing to do when you’ve decided it’s right is to end the relationship and ALL contact at that point. That’s the only way to fully ‘divorce’ yourself of the person. Enlist the help of a supportive therapist who will be your advisor and sounding board through the process, and seek the help of people in your life that support you. I hope this helps! Love, Bela

  5. To who it may concern,
    My name is Jennifer Parkman I’m 53 years old and I have never been married. I’m having so much trouble with the dating scene all the men that I have met of dating sites want sex and that’s it no commitment relationships. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong I have pics that show me working as well as pics that show me dressed up but, still no man they just look plus I’m tired of being paired up with white men I want a man that’s mixed like me part mexican and part European I tried to date a black man but he played too many games. I need help I don’t want to live out the rest of my years alone and having my cat as my only companion please help.

    1. Hi Jennifer, There are great men everywhere, regardless of their nationality, ethnicity, religion, etc. There will always be men who just want sex – just delete / block them and don’t waste time on them. Focus your energy on being proactive, and messaging men who look and sound good to you! Take control of the steering wheel of your dating life, and message men who you’re interested in – and see what happens. Love, Bela

  6. I’ve never turnin on a dating site before because I never knew that something good will come out of it until recently when I watch the show pls ma’am recommend me a good dating site that has the most incredible perple God fearing and respectful people thanks
