Steve and JoAnn Ward are Master Matchmakers, it says so right there in the name of their business. And with years of relationship and matchmaking experience under their belts, not to mention four successful seasons of Tough Love, they’ve set the bar for realistic, no-B.S. dating advice. And now they’re offering their advice to viewers on the VH1 Blog. We asked Tough Love Facebook fans this week to submit their relationship questions and you all really had a lot of them, so we picked some of our favorites for Steve and JoAnn to address, and we’ll be posting their answers every week. If you’d like to submit a question, just become a Facebook fan and leave a comment here! Here are this week’s questions.
Natasha Blas asks “What’s the best way to go about finding someone special when you have kids?
Go to places and events that you know parents take their children. Some examples would include: amusement parks, single parent support groups, sporting events, school functions, ice cream parlors, parks, etc. Just also be sure to check for a wedding band!
Tresina Moore Hansen asks “I have a 10-year-old son who has seen two men in my life come and go and it has been so hard on him. How is a single mom supposed to balance the time necessary to get to know a potential partner with protecting her son’s heart?”
Steve says: Don’t introduce your son until you’re ready to be in a committed relationship with a man. Once you’re in the committed relationship with him, you guys can spend all your time together, as a family.
