Dating coach Bela Gandhi is here with us now to help you as part of our simply a better you series partnering with splenda. Take a look. It's been four weeks since smart dating academy founder Bela Gandhi gave Christie's online dating profile a much needed makeover. Since then the 31-year-old has dramatically changed the way she uses dating sites. I'm actually pleasantly surprised. I never expected to meet so many incredible men. To keep the positive momentum going, Christie caught up with Bela at the four seasons in Chicago for a quick coaching session? As we get closer to Valentine's day, you know, the numbers with online dating continue to peak. There's till going to be an amazing robust number of people online. Reporter: To find that perfect match Bela recommends making a ghq or good husband quality list. First start by naming the qualities you're looking for in a partner. My dream guy is happy and adventurous. Reporter: Then make a separate list of the people who make you the happiest. My mother is so kind and she's very nurturing. Reporter: Bela says some of the things you may be looking for in a partner are not as important as how ha person makes you feel. Someone that's positive. Someone that makes you feel good about you versus just focusing on, wow, he's really cute. So great to have Bela, the founder of smart dating academy with us. Are you ready? All right. Our panel members are audience members and you guys are going to give your opinion on dating scenarios. If you think it's good, go for green. Not so good, go for the red. And here we go.

Change it up and watch how you're going to start to get like, messages, it's all good. That's great. I'm glad I asked. Back to you guys. Everybody, get involved. So on your first date you discover that you and your date have different opinions on politics. Is that a red flag or a green flag? I'm going green. I would -- We can all have different opinions. I like the slow red, the red/green. I would say that's a qualified green flag. Right? Yeah. You can have -- you can have differing political beliefs. If the first date is fun and having like a healthy fun banter and debate about it it's definitely a green flag, but if you guys sit on different sides of the fences and knock out drag out fight it is a red flag. Millions of couples navigate a lot of differences, that's how you'll compromise and be flexible too. Okay. All right. We have time for one more. So you're on six different dating sites and apps.
