Transcript for Singles prepare for the biggest dating weekend of the year
All right now to a popular new year's resolution, to find love. Two of our audience members right here according to dating apps this Sunday is expected to be their busiest matchmaking day of the year. Bela Gandhi, the founder of smart dating academy is here to take us into the "Gma" zone this morning. The love zone. We'll introduce our guests in a moment. Why are so many people turning to apps this weekend? Look, almost half of Americans are single and it's after the 1st. We're making resolutions to get out there and fall in love. Second, Sunday are always the busiest day of the week. Why? Hangovers are over. The music is down. So by Sunday night we're feeling lonely and start swiping so those two things combine to make Sunday kind of dating super bowl. You're going to get everybody ready to go for this Sunday. We want to get the audience involved. Everybody has paddles. True, false, you can be lively. It's all right. All right. So here's what we'll do. I'll ask the audience a question and tell me if it's true or false. Here's the question, if you really like someone, and they're really good for you, you should feel heavy butterflies in your stomach. True or false? True? A lot of trues. Bela, the answer. The answer is, eh, false. Oh. Why is that? This is why we're not dating as a culture. We're taught to think that butterflies in our stomach are good, we're excited. You can have a little before the first date but after the first date if your stomach has heavy churning butterflies it's your gut telling you danger, will Robinson. Our guests here. First we have to check in with our single 22-year-old Hannah from Minnesota. Thank you so much for being here. Hannah, what is your question? What is your question for Bela? Hi, Bela. I've been on a few dates and am self-conscious. Tips on how to build my self-confidence in order to ask a guy out on a date. Good. I'm so glad you're doing that. When you're on the apps you don't have to have long deep conversations by text. What you can do to see if you can build chemistry. Take it to the phone. When you talk to someone on the phone before a date, actually speak and talk you're actually creating a connection so that when you get on the date it doesn't feel so awkward. And if you really want to up your game, you can set up the facetime. Right? You can actually see and hear what this person is like. Let's bring in Michael. You call yourself a hopeful what's your question? So the dating world has changed a lot so my question is about tradition. Is it okay to bring flowers on a first date or is that doing too much? So, today -- A gentleman. I love that. But in today's dating world it's probably a little much to bring flowers right away. Go on the fourth, fifth, sixth date. If you feel like it will be well received then you can bring out the flowers. The 20s are an awesome time to get out there and meet people in real life. Go to the weddings, go to the parties. Go to everything, say yes. We're out of time. Thank you so much. Bela joins us tomorrow on "Gma
