DON'T: Break up with someone during the New Year's countdown
Because you never know when that person will end up on a TV show and share with the world that you did that. Ouch. You don't want to be the person known as the countdown breakup guy. You might as well have just broken up with her via a Post-It note.
DO: Have a list
And if you're going to make a list, it may as well be thorough. OK, maybe one shouldn't be quite so specific as Courtney (i.e. must have a globe in their office from their mentor), but still standards are a must.
FYI: Texas isn't Southern, it's Southwestern. BIG difference. As stated on the show, Dallas is FlAsHy, the South is not. All one has to do is compare Dallas to Birmingham, Charlotte, Charleston, Jackson (MS),Knoxville, Memphis, Nashville(kinda transient), Louisville, Lexington, Macon, Mobile, Richmond, Charlottesville (VA),Savannah....
That Tara girl does seem sweet!
As a matchmaker here in DC we have also found that those that have pets in common often times share similar interests. At the same time having one type of pet or another can be deal breakers for some!
We've had men who tell us that they steer clear of woman with cats, and a woman who refused to even hear about potential matches if they owned a dog!
