DON'T: Bring a girl to dinner and then invite some more girls that she doesn't know

Matt's whole bring-multiple-girls-on-one-date approach remains rather baffling to me. I think it was also a little baffling to poor Shannon as well. She seemed to be out of the loop on how these dinners work, unlike Brittnye and Kat. But nobody got up and left, so I suppose their must be something to this style of seduction, even if it was a little awkward. I guess it's more of a do at your own risk.

DON'T: Go into a matchmaker date blind

Drew didn't seem to know anything other than his date's name before meeting him for their first date, and that ended up being a really bad move. He was way too short for his taste, a Mexican ginger (which, while it sounded exotic to us, didn't do it for Drew), and the real sticking point -- he didn't want kids. Now Drew specifically said he wanted someone who wanted a family, so I'm not quite sure how that fell through the cracks. Guess this wasn't the matchmaker for him, but lesson learned -- always get the info on someone (or at least do some extensive Facebook stalking) before you go on date with someone you haven't met.
