Stanika Banks: Redefining Dating and Relationships

As of writing, it does not seem like Stanika Banks is dating anyone. The reality TV star joined the TLC show with the purpose of finding a partner that would be able to match her energy. Under the guidance of Nina Kharoufeh, she decided to take a leap of faith and find her potential significant other in the country of Morocco. Having worked hard to build herself up and discover her inner self, Stanika’s desire to find a romantic match was certainly something that the viewers could relate to.

Given her apparent unhappiness with the dating culture within the US, it is easy to understand why Stanika decided to devote three weeks of her life to exploring Morocco. If nothing else, we are sure that the trip sat well with the travel-loving side of the reality TV star, though we are hopeful that she soon finds her happily ever after.
