Finally a Reality Show With Substance.
18 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am a guy and I find this show seriously compelling. I cannot even believe I learned so much watching this show. In fact...boy oh boy...I seriously wish Steve could speak to a friend of mine. Man...I should send her to the show. She needs Steve's coaching...big time. I would like to see a professional psychologist assist Steve as I think some women on the show...not all of them and not generalizing here, but some of them have such major deep seeded psychological issues. Some of them are so traumatized they are even beyond Steve's coaching. I am sure people get annoyed with some of the drama queens on this show. I would have to admit this show is not really for men, but you would be very surprised that some buddies of mine actually watch this show too.

Steve is an outstanding person. Sure he is harsh sometimes, but this is a boot camp not a bridal shower. I think Steve should be featured in way, way more segments on all the morning talk shows and afternoon shows could use a segment with Steve. Maybe a book and a book tour or promotion? His insight into the entire dating scene? So many of us single people love hearing his advice and perspective. Men can learn from this show...but single women? Forget about it. This show should be mandatory if you have trouble finding that special someone. If you seriously listen and learn you can gain free knowledge and that is awesome. Wonder why you are still single? Watch this show and you will find out why within 2 episodes. Great job, Steve...great concept. Original reality show with way more substance than most of them...and I sincerely appreciate a good show. Bravo.
