Reality dating shows are always great if you’re looking to be totally entertained. There are so many options to choose from, but you can't go wrong with binge-watching Ready to Love. It's worth checking out because of its interesting dynamics. A lot of dating shows focus on people in their twenties trying to track down their soulmates, but Ready to Love does things a little differently. The unscripted series focuses on the male perspective in the world of romance for folks who are a little older.
A group of Black men and women in their 30s and 40s experience the steps of courtship with one huge thing in common … they’re all successful in their fields. The people on this show are looking for true love with a genuine interest in settling down. It’s fascinating to watch the men on this show express their feelings as they unpack what they’re observing and going through.
And Season 5 has an awesome cast of individuals to meet.
