    Married at First Sight: Second Chances ~ Happily Ever After

    The first ever Married at First Sight: Second Chances Finale did not disappoint! It was a joy to watch the end of Vanessa’s journey to find love. As I watched Vanessa spend the week with Shannon, one thing was evident. She tried to give him a fair chance, but her heart was clearly with Andre. Don’t get me wrong, they had some cute moments. However, when she didn’t want to share a room with Shannon, I knew her feelings for Andre had to be strong. The way Vanessa handled this difficult situation speaks to her integrity and commitment to Andre long-term. Onward to the Finale! Shannon arrived first and although Vanessa tried…

    Married at First Sight: Second Chances ~ Observations and Questions

    In this episode of Married at First Sight: Second Chances on Lifetime, my focus was on body language in addition to words. Here are my observations on what I read between the lines. Stop, Look and Listen…    Salem and David never went beyond the friend zone.    Zach admits something was off with Vanessa from the beginning.     It seems if you truly want to impress  the “mother”, you don’t show up late to dinner…     …instead you tell her about all the love you have to give her son.      You may have had a lack of “present” Andre, but  you had no lack of “presence”.…

Let’s find out… On the Outs   David, did you really just say to put in a good word  with Vanessa’s sister Kenya? Oh, heck no. Boy, bye!      Maya did not abandon David.

    Married at First Sight: Second Chances ~ Flips and Flops

    Each week on Married at First Sight: Second Chances, I get more invested with Vanessa and David finding their happily ever after. You’d think I could sit back and enjoy the ride, but not this girl. My stomach is alternately flipping and flopping the entire 90 minutes. Here’s why… Flopping in Agony That awkward feeling when he asks you if  you’ve been on other dates while dating him…   David to Brittany: I’m afraid to try it. I know how you New England people  like to cheat. Me: Ouch! That was about the Bills and Patriots rivalry, right?   I’m not going to make a political statement about the fact  that there…

    Married at First Sight: Second Chances ~ Ups and Downs

    This week’s episode of Married at First Sight: Second Chances was pretty intense. As Vanessa gets more clear and concise with her questions, David gets more transparent and revealing with his heart. Let’s look at the ups and downs of it all. On the Downside…   There is no question that Jordan is a woman  of honesty and integrity. So when David broke  up with her, many of us were left feeling shell-shocked. Occupational hazard of dating multiple men simultaneously… calling someone the wrong name. Totally understandable, but ouch. When you’re so preoccupied with your thoughts, you can’t even  respond to the farm cats attacking your cheese and cracker tray. First getting the ever dreaded 2:1 date and then…

    This week’s episode of Married at First Sight: Second Chances had us on a constant rush of highs and lows. I don’t know about you, but I’m feeling rather drained. Let’s get to it…Low Blows   Shannon…who usually has all the right moves, announces to  Vanessa he’s going to Thailand for a week…in the middle of dating her.   David, hoping for a drama-free date, cringes when  Malika announces Callie has been talking badly about the other  girls. I’m still not a fan of tattling. This is getting old, really fast.   Nathan admits to wanting a level of submissiveness and a woman who knows how to be a woman. Wait….what???  David saw something in Maya…

    Married at First Sight: Second Chances ~ Advice and Adversary

    In this week’s Married at First Sight: Second Chances recap, there’s some great advice from the experts and a little bit of drama. Sociologist, Dr. Pepper Schwartz gives guidance to David and Vanessa as they start their journey.  Identify your deal-breakers. The more information you collect, the more it will help you to see beyond physical attraction.  Stay focused on who these women really are. Chemistry can lead you down the wrong path.  Kissing someone at this level could impact your relationship and create drama with the other women.  Get below the surface and ask questions that will separate initial physical attraction from those you can grow a deeper connection…
