This week’s episode follows two very different men both in desperate need of change and my help. Let's start with Dana Tompkins. He is the tall, hot bartender who is in touch with his emotional side. Jenn and I met him in Grand Central Station, the perfect location for people watching, since that place is buzzing with all types of people. As they say in NY, if you can make it there, you can make it anywhere. Well in Grand Central if you can't find someone there, you won’t find someone anywhere.
I soon learn that Dana has some baggage. He had an issue with every type of woman I pointed out to him. Too tall, too skinny, too much hair, weird toes, etc. I knew that Dana would be a challenge and I needed to dig deeper. It turns out Dana was looking for one specific person -- his ex-girlfriend. During my one-on-one session with him, I learn that Dana is yearning for that emotional connection that he shared with his ex. He needed a major wakeup call, and I was happy to give it to him. I believe that everyone has more than one soulmate, and it was time for Dana to recognize that.
We have all been in Dana's shoes. Sometimes it is hard to move on because you haven't been able to close that last door. In Dana's case, he was looking for the exact replica of his ex, straight down to the fake boobs. Listen up, Dana, you fell for her heart and behind all boobs (fake or not) there is another heart out there for you. Dana will find love, because there is enough love in this world for everyone who is willing to receive it; he just needs to be ready to open his soul to those new connections without comparison to old attachments. Dana is two steps ahead of most people, because he is able to show that he is emotionally vulnerable. I loved that about him, and I bet thousands of you amazing women who saw the show will too.
Come on BRAVO —don't cancel Lori : ( She's super fun and cute yet intelligent and passionate about what she does unlike your previous Matchmaker whose show is so contrived it isn't even worth watching. Unlike the majority of dating/relationship resources on TV, Lori has some real life drama mixed with solid insights people can take away while having fun and being entertained. I thought you were finally stepping up the quality from the tired and toxic Stanger Schtick. Please whatever you do, give us something better than that or we'll have to look elsewhere for decent dating drama...
I just caught the first episode this week. I dvr'd it after seeing the first six minutes. I am a tv reality lover. I most enjoy the ones that help others as the core. I was just texting my friend telling him I would love for him to get Lori's help. I already convinced my best friend that she HAD to watch the show. So I want to know her astrological sign (I'm into that) only to find out that Bravo is only giving 2 episodes. How can that be if they've shown clips that look like a full season??? I am disappointed because I loved her after the first six minutes. She's real. She's adorable. She's the girl you went to summer camp with and she got all the attention without trying. After listening to her husband's comments about her, I was convinced of her connection to God. She loves what she does and her life supports it. She is convinced she has gifts where connecting single souls to one another is a God given gift, because she knows the importance of love. I hope Bravo takes another look...or sell the episodes or something. I love her and know something stupid must have ended this relationship. I can't swallow the amount of drama and acid has in all the other reality shows without the sweet and true concern of shows like Love Broker!!!!! Please Rethink this!!!!! Lori...whatever happens with Bravo...you've got a fan in me!!! You're real and I want you to find my friend Burrell a wonderful girl. I'm a Brooklyn girl myself and got loyalty for ya!!!
Wow, what a difference between your show & the other match maker show! You are so much nicer, caring & have a much better personality and attitude. I am now a Fan! I had to stop watching the other show, they are so negative and rude. P.S. Love the way you think of your husband & keeping your marriage exciting. *Take notes from this woman people!
Big fan of MANY shows ob Bravo.. This is NOT one of them, can't stand the girl... Bravo what were you thinking!!!!
Whatever happened to Tim in this episode? The episode just stated that he was 29. He was the hairy chest guy whose chest was fully man-scaped clean. In my personal opinion, I liked the chest hair and it was not a bad look at all on him.
