Spoken for, single, or otherwise, Patti Stanger still believes in the power of matches. "As long as I'm living and breathing, I will help people find love," she tells Michigan's Daily Tribune.
So our Millionaire Matchmaker took her mission to Southfield, Michigan this week to help out singles at the Sisterhood of Congregation Shaarey Zedek, delivering lessons on life and love. Lesson one: know your timetable -- if he hasn't put a ring on it after one year, find someone who will.
"Empower yourself and give yourself the knowledge that you're the real deal," she says. "If he can't give you what you want, leave... He'll come back. If not, move on."
And if you're worried about Patti finding love again, you shouldn't be -- she says she'll be working on that next season. "I'm going to be using all antics," she tells the paper. "Producers are actually looking for the guys right now."
What do you think? If you don't get a ring after one year, should you bail on your relationship? Start a Tweet Battle and make your case.
I think 2 years is a better timetable with a short engagement. If both parties have careers, a year isn't long enough to really know someone. Also, it depends on age - the younger a woman and her man, the longer they should date before becoming engaged. Lastly, the woman should make sure her biological clock doesn't dictate the dating-engagement-marriage schedule. Lest she miss huge red flags.
