I set them up on a date at Sushi Samba. I was sure a sushi-making lesson would be just the thing to stop Jesse from playing 20 questions and engage in warm and caring conversation versus Interview 101. I was dying in suspense waiting to hear how their date went. I met with Stephanie the next day, and I was shocked to learn that after trying to pick a date activity where it would be nearly impossible for Jesse to interrogate her, he still did. She even told me that she had no idea what he did for a living, since he was drilling her with his questions.
This date surprised me. It seemed a bit awkward, but hey maybe there was some unexplainable connection going on in between all those awkward silences. I was glad that Stephanie enjoyed herself, but listen up men; you must do more than a toast to a second date. If you like her, always ask her out on a second date at the end of the first date and follow through. Trust your heart and instincts, the first instinct is the right one if you can tune into it. Don’t they teach that in Blind Date 101? Stay tuned, ladies and gents, to find out whether or not Jesse ruined his chances of getting a second date with Stephanie. Don't wait 3 days to call. A lot can happen in 3 days, especially in the city that never sleeps.
Finding a soulmate isn’t always easy. It doesn’t take one date and that's it. When I first met my husband, I didn’t instantly feel a magnetic connection and say that’s the one I want to sleep with tonight and marry. It doesn't happen like that. Love is a process. You have to nurture love and take care of it. Love makes you a better person; it lifts you up and nurtures your soul. I am never going to stop believing in love, ever.
To all my married couples and those in relationships, always make time for each other. The key to a long lasting relationship is spicing it up from time to time and keeping it fresh. Dates are not only for those who are trying to get to know each other. Dates are to ENJOY each other. My sexy husband and I always make sure to have at least one date night a week. And yes to all my Twitter friends, I do buy him roses.
Hope you loved this episode and stay tuned for more love next week.
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.
Big fan of MANY shows ob Bravo.. This is NOT one of them, can't stand the girl... Bravo what were you thinking!!!!
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!
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!!!
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...
