With Valentine’s Day around the corner, we want to ask, “Are you settling or dating smart?”
Oprah sat down with Greg Behrendt, author of, “It’s Just a F****** Date,” which is also the inspiration for a 2009 movie we all love, He’s Just Not That Into You, starring Jennifer Aniston, Bradley Cooper, Jennifer Connelley, Justin Long, and Ben Affleck.

Jaimi Alexander, Haley J and special guest host Keandra Doss, really dove deep in the dating discussion pool during their episode of Super Soul Sit Down, the after show for Oprah’s Super Soul Conversations podcast. They broke down the myths and pitfalls of dating and uncovering the mindsets that keep us settling in the first place.
“It’s a refreshing message of something to give women the power to be able to know when a guy is just not into them and in being able to just stop wasting their time, stop feeling like they need to perform, and really just taking their power back and owning their worth,” Doss, owner of KRD International, said this about the podcast conversation
One of the dating myths uncovered was, the age old notion that “I need a partner to complete me.” The TRUTH to dispel this myth is that we are much better coming to the table as whole individuals and our partners can add to that completion.
We don’t want to choose partners based on filling a void within as this creates unhealthy co-dependencies that at times can become too much weight for the other partner to handle and lead to the demise of the relationship.
“If you are only happy when someone is in your life, what are you going to do when they’re not,” asked Alexander, “fall apart and be unhappy?”.
So we dare to ask, are you dating smart? Still not sure? To watch the whole episode and learn so much more, click the link above! Plus, join Jaimi Alexander and Haley J every Monday at 6:15pm PST on AfterBuzz TV YouTube to join in on transformative conversations that feed your soul.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
