Ask the Online Expert
Have you ever wondered how online dating sites manage their member info? Or what goes into an attention-grabbing profile? Or when it's time to take an online relationship offline? Wonder no more. Sam Moorcroft, founder of ChristianCafe.com, is in our studio to answer questions from a panel of us who have done online dating and lived (in some cases, barely) to tell about it. He takes the mystery out of meeting someone online and assures us that more people are doing it each day. This is a fun conversation that'll give you a new perspective on finding love in a digital age.
Les and Leslie Parrott have been in the relationship biz longer than most of us have been allowed to date. As a clinical psychologist and marriage and family therapist, college professors and the authors of numerous dating and marriage books, the Parrotts know a few things about men and women and what makes them tick. They sit down with me to discuss their book Dot.com Dating as well as their views on compatibility and communication in relationships.

The problem is, her mom doesn't approve. What should she do to respect her mom while at the same time giving the relationship a chance if it's meant to be? Candice weighs in.
