Later that evening, I could put my finger on it easily when Dr. Jekyll and Ms. Hyde showed up at Joseph’s party. And I’d have put my finger directly on the Emergency Eject button if I had one that evening. Within 30 seconds of her walking through the door, I could tell someone was up to no good -- there was a weird tension in the air. The next thing I know, Tina approaches me, completely passive aggressively, on a mission to pick a fight and embarrass me in front of everyone. Never in my life have I had something like this happen! Normally if a client questioned my rules, it would be in my office. We’d talk about why they should follow them and how my guidance would help them in the process of finding them true love. This was the wrong environment. Clearly it was Tina’s intention not to leave this party without a blowout. I was not about to play this game and decided to shut it down the moment I saw what she was trying to do.
After humiliating herself and then knocking my own drink out of my hand as she tried to grab me (yet claiming I threw my drink on her!), thank goodness she and her friend bolted. My Greenwich retreat had turned miserable. I mean, could my week GET ANY WORSE?
In typical Joe style, he saved me from spiraling into a state of misery and encouraged me to have a great date with Scott. Scott, we all know, is generally not my type at all. Yet he had the confidence to walk right up to me and ask me out. So naturally, there was something appealing in that. The morning after the party, I was so tempted to cancel and just stay under the covers all day in bed. In true form, being the great friend Joe is, he wouldn’t let me do that. Again, so thankful for that.
Scott is one of the coolest guys I have met in a while. My date with Scott felt so different than my dates with AB or Lewis. And I quickly realized that with Scott I was starting to feel comfortable, happy, and was even -- GASP! -- having a little bit of fun! I like these kinds of dates! Is this what a truly good date feels like? I only want these from now on, please! I like not feeling insecure, not having to impress anyone, not feeling criticized when I’m trying to be good enough for another person. This pretty much rocks.
Step back - either walk the walk or know that people are going to say she is not what she says she is.
If you were my matchmaker and I saw you on this show doing what you are doing I would ask for a refund.
You need to take your own medicine.
I believe you were comfortable with Scoltt was because you were not interested in him romanticly.
And did you feel him trying to touch you......er he did touch you while he was caring you.
What a pig!
That woman was horrible. She only made herself look bad. If you don't want the matchmaker's advice, don't go to the matchmaker.
At first I thought Tina was just control freak crazy. But she was so over-the-top, that I finally decided she was acting out for the cameras, ala Jerry Springer. Sheesh. Fail! lol
Glad you got it. Next time please don't let lust overwhelm you to break your rules as you did with Lewis. Huge mistake causing you pain and a waste of precious time you could have been out on "good" dates like you described with Scott. You were not strong enough though to having Tina removed immediately and shutting her down by not talking about the subjects she wanted to talk/shout about. You should have embarrassed her by saying you were restraining yourself from calling the pice and pressing charges for assault since she grabbed you and accosted you and suggest that she leave immediately before you change your mind.
That Tina brute was a weirdo. She knocked your drink out of your hand as she grabbed at you, then blamed you. (Ooooh, Armani!)
Yay Amy! Your sweet date with Scott was really nice to watch. You let your guard down and showed your gentle, vulnerable side. More of that, please!
