How to Lose a Guy in One Date

Episode 2: Bravotv.com's Assistant Editor thinks there were plenty of lessons to be learned from this week's disaster dates.

This week we got to see some of our Most Eligible Dallas denizens looking for love on dates that were mostly just eligible for awards in awkwardness. The plus side? We've definitely got our Dallas don'ts covered this week. Let's see what lessons we can learn from our sexy singles...

DO: Sing for the person you may or may not be trying to woo

If you've got a good set of pipes, don't be afraid to show them off to potential suitors. Just about every girl claims to be just friends with Matt, but if our chemistry radar is working right (and we'd like to think it usually is), there's definitely some sparkage between him and Neill. And what better way to set yourself apart from the deluge of Dallas blonds than with the power of song? I can attest to the fact that hearing someone you're seeing sing can be super sexy. That is of course assuming they're good.

DON'T: Be afraid to see a matchmaker

Patti Stanger has approved this message. But in all seriousness, good for Drew for stepping outside the box and his comfort zone to try and find a mate. Drew also wasn't afraid to be pretty honest about what he needs, even when it comes to his "rabbit-like symptoms of horniness." It sounded to me like he layed out some pretty clear instructions about what he was looking for, but somehow it didn't quite work out for Drew... More on this later.

Side Note: Do you think those glamor shots behind the matchmaker's desk were her when she was younger?

DO: Use condoms

Regardless of the underlying context of Courtney's statement during her dinner with Matt, we fully endorse safe sex!

DO: Have self-confidence

Glenn certainly isn't lacking in the self-love department, yet somehow he manages to still come off like a total sweetheart. (How is that possible?) In any event, he is so pleased with his modeling photos that he wants to plaster them on the side of his Cadillac. Excuse me, his Pakulak Cadillac. You'd think this comes off obnoxious, but somehow he even pulls that off sounding cute. Clearly self-confidence and good looks can be a deadly combination.

DON'T: Bring a Dallas diva bowling (and then get into an accident in the parking lot)

I still find it hard to believe that Tara had never been bowling before, but I don't blame her for finding it a strange venue for a first date. A first date is drinks or dinner, not competitive sports. (I don't like to expose my rampant competitive streak too early.) Bowling is also asking for a broken nail, and if it's surprise (as it was for Tara), you may show up sockless, and nothing is less sexy than borrowed socks coupled with borrowed shoes.

Things only continued to go wrong when he got into an accident in the parking lot. Oof. Props to him at least for recovering after that, because it's just super awkward. "Oh, just stay in the car while I give this man my isurance info." Yeah, not exactly a swoon-worthy statement.

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.

DON'T: Be too sarcastic with someone you're trying to make up with

I get that Courtney's a kidder, but it may not be the best idea to lay the sarcasm on so thick with someone who doesn't know you that well. Courtney and Neill's attempt at reconciliation was, well, just about as awkward as the first dates from earlier in the episode. And that's saying a lot. The real loser in that situation however was Tara, who I think would have excused herself, gone to the bathroom, and jumped out of the nearest window if she could have.

Next week Glenn and Courtney share some quality time. Could she be looking for a ride in the Pakulak Cadillac...

 

Who Run the World

Neill talks about her band's debut and being a single mother.

Hello there, beautiful people! Lots of love, love, love to you all! Thanks for hanging in with us here through all these episodes… Who'd have known everything would turn out the way it did? The good news is I believe everything happens for a reason. 

As far as this final episode goes, I don't have too much to say. I believe the majority of the episode speaks for itself… it was nice, funny, awkward, charming, and in the end, my band got to play! I was very happy we got some of that on the last episode. I love how they showed us (my band, Kitty LaLa) playing the song "Come Home With Me" as Matt and Courtney had an intimate stare/gaze-into-my-eyes-before-we-kiss moment... Hey, that's what I write for, moments like that!  

Anyway, the show was a success, and to conclude it all, I've got to give you a bit of my "behind the scenes/is it time to pull my hair out/what did I just do" inside scoop!

1. Filming a reality show is the most stressful job I've ever had in my life! 

2. I was writing and putting my band together as the show was being filmed… Talk about stress! Aside from the fact that I'm a new mother, that one really took the cake! Glad you all got to see a glimpse of our Dallas debut. Very proud of myself and the guys… Kitty LaLa killed it!

Thank you everyone for all of your sweet, beautiful, and encouraging words. It means a lot not only as a mother, but as a single mother finding her own path, a singer/songwriter/entrepreneur, and most importantly, a young woman coming into her own. I consider this experience as a true blessing. I see all the beauty that could've come from it along with everything in between… Thank you all for your sweet words and encouraging statements. Everyone on the show has been such a blessing to me and my son. I love all of you! 

I would love to hear from you (seriously!). You can contact me via Twitter @NeillSkylar or Facebook me (if my personal page is overloaded, just hit my fan page and I'll be sure to get back to you even quicker, hehe).

And please be sure to like my band Kitty LaLa or follow us on Twitter (preferably both) @KittyLaLaMusic! Here's our new music video, "Come Home With Me" --http://youtu.be/nYSoigfFnFE

Love you all so much! Please keep in touch! Muah! And for all those single mamas out there, let's stick together. If we can do all that we do, we might as well take over the world! All my love, heart, and soul to you all! God Bless! Once again… XOXO!
