Matt was shocked how things played out at the girls' dinner.

on Aug 22, 20110

I enjoyed the pool scene, mostly because Mamma Kerr is in it and she was kind with her words...Court should listen to her mother more often. 

Tara is in a tough situation because of all the things already going on in her life with the charity and her business and now having to be the middle person between some of her closest friends. We are all thankful that it's Tara however; she makes each of our lives that much better because she's genuine, honest, and caring. 

I really enjoyed my dinner with Kat, Brittnye, and Shannon...beautiful inside and out. We are like family and we do meals like this quite often. Friends of the opposite sex should all be able to go to dinner and not be judged.

Let me not beat around the bush and tell you what I think. You might be tall and hansome and your dad taught you everything you know (business wise) but you don't have a "dammmm" clue about women. Women don't want to have dinner or lunch with you and and five minutes later you have five or six extra women (woman joining you every five minutes) at the table. That ain't "cool" dude !

Can you go out with just one person are you this little wimp that got his heart broken and can't stand to be by himself. GROW UP, if you as one woman out to dinner don't take your whole department. It really looks stupid and you look disparate. Or are you just so stuck on yourself that it make you feel better that you're the only male at a table with five or more women.

If you need that many women around........take them on a picnic !

Matt, I laughed out loud when you said you communicate well with women. You don't have a clue about women. You are very immatue and emotionally stunted.

It's obvious there is interest between Matt and Courtney that they both are not ready to admit. I am waiting to see what will happen if Glen and Courtney hook up. I think that would change the dynamic between Matt and Courtney seriously. Matt would need to find more women to surround him to cover his ego and Courtney would need to come to terms that she has no chance with her true love.

It's too bad the way you took all of those women out together; it was definitely on more than a "friend" level with more than one of them and was just trashy. Made you look like a skeezeball. You seem really smart and to work really hard at your job with your dad, awesome qualities. Clean up your dating habits and treat women like equal human beings, and you might end up being one worthwhile person.

hey you should probably let Courtney know you dont want to be with her because she is clearly in love with you! But I do commend you on sticking up for Neill, she does not deserve to be judged because of something that is actually a really big part of her life now! Courtney should feel like a jerk saying the things she did about her!

Matt, when you were speaking with Glenn after the dinner with Neill and Courtney and the whole gang; Glenn asked you, if you and Courtney "had a thing". You said that was a long time ago, when she was 18 and you were 22. But according to your bios, you are now 28 and Courtney is 29. What's the dealio there?

Matt, do you need to learn manners. Your good friend was there and you didnt stand up for her. Neil is a classy lady and I am now a single mom after 16 years of marriage and now single I cant have a life when my children are 17 and 12. Give me a gun to finish it. How NOT NICE. Courtney needs to buy a backbone and confidence why is she so insecure. Buy a personality she is so mean and even meaner when your friend went NOT NICE. I hope you read this get it straight and buy some morals . I wish I could have some hope. then again probably NOT

Man up and tell Courtney you are not interested in her. She obviously is in love with you.

I would refrain from calling a woman your "go-to girl" on TV ever again. It is just rude whether she is or is not your go-to girl.

Matt, The group dating thing is sort of sad to see. It looks kind of like everyone at the table - you included - is pretty desperate for something. And it's not hot. No one is trying to tell you that you can't do the hitting-up-your-phonebook thing. It's obviously your right to do that if you want to, playa. But your friends should tell you that it's kind of pathetic. And your claims that "life just gets better and better" seem a little put on to me. In life, you get hurt, then you try again. Avoiding making real connections to people just so that you can avoid getting hurt will, well, get you to a really uncomfortable dinner table every weekend with the kinds of ladies who will show up there with you. Friendly advice . . . lose the stream of nobodies. A confident guy doesn't need to take a cheerleading squad on a date!

Otherwise, you seem like a perfectly good person with potential to (continue to) do great things and have meaningful relationships with people.

Matt, you are not the first guy to get his heart broken nor will be the last. Get over it. You say you are honest with these women and to an extent you are. But be honest with yourself and have a little respect for yourself. Dating all these women and sleepign around doesnt' make you a "real" man, it just makes you the town slut. Hope you and these women are making sure you are wearing a condom.

Would you PLEASE tell Courtney how it is!! You are not "in love" with her and if you aren't by now, you probably never will be. You are so ridiculous to watch and so is she!!! You both need serious counseling.

Groups are not intimate, fear of intimacy much ? A group is better than one on one is not a defensible position unless you were raised as an orphan. Speaking of Patti Stanger (have you watched her show) you run the risk of being one of her almost 50 male clients looking for a 22 year old.

Matt, I think it's great that you are young, single, and having fun. You should do that and enjoy that lifestyle while you can. What's concerning is that you talk about not having time to do 1 on 1 when you can do 1 on 3 and so on. Why should these women have to share you? Why not invite some of your guy friends along to even out the numbers? I really want to like you. I have researched your charity and you are doing some amazing things, but when I see you date 3-4 women at once, it does make you seem arrogant and a little bourgeois. Be the great man that you were raised to be and treat everyone the way you want to be treated.

You wonder what Patti Stanger would say about Drew?? I wonder what she would say about you?? Afraid to commit, always looking for the next best thing... there might be something better around the next corner....hope that works out for you. Hope Courtney wakes up before the bitterness sets in.

Seems like you objectify women and are consumed by indulging your over-inflated spoiled ego. Courtney has made some keen observations regarding insight to your personality which I too find to be a major turn-off.

You know exactly what you are doing and you are having a great time doing it. What kind of a guy takes a woman to dinner (unknown to her) invites 2 additional ladies and is still able to score w/the 1girl....a man who knows how toplay the game. BTW she didn't seem too bright, but I'm sure you knew that's was the reason it worked out so well...

Matt, You are good guy. i really admire that you have "all your cards on the table". Its nice to see an honest guy out there......but your buddy Courtney--> not so cool. All she wants from Neill is to find out how far things went between you two. Why would she even want to dig about your intimacy????Could it be becasue she's crazy about you and YOU just haven't noticed that yet? I really feel for Neill becasue she is such a sweetheart and Courtney has been nothing but rude to her. In the first episode, we all noticed that the simple fact that Neill arrived to the restaurant WITH YOU, triggered all of Courtney's fire. The second encounter between the two was a disaster! Courtney has said over and over again that she has tried to apologize to Neill....Reality Check- Please do not fail to realize that Courtney has not once attempted to apologize to Neill.

Are you kidding me??? If I went to a dinner and all those women showed up with just one man, I would be gone!!!

Tired of this "I'm not a player" thing already. Why does everything have to be a group of women? Meh.

Matt- You are a smart man, so it surprises me that you think Courtney is looking out for you. It's so obvious that she is insecure and selfish. A true friend would never act like that.

Matt, I hope a story line develops for you other than you being a serial "group dater" ... this is already getting old.

Matt, At this point in your life as long as you are not hurting anyone, you can do what you want. When the right one comes a long you will know it and the plan will change. Get rid of C she is not a good person and is totally nuts about you. She has her own agenda and will turn on you too.

You ARE a player. Just admit it. I dated a guy just like you. He was in denial also & I am sure he still is. Run ladies. Run away from this guy.

Matt, it's extremely important you watch Courtney closely during all of her scenes. It should be an eyeopening experience. Of course one should cherish the importance & comfort of old friendships, but she definitely needs to have some clear boundaries set, then oblige to them. Otherwise, she is going to make it her mission to disrupt any relationship you try to form. Good Luck...remember: boundaries.

Oh Matt. You are so cute, and sweet, but the 5 year age gap between you and some of these girls (Neill & Kat), is just SO "colleg-y". You seem to be a very solid friend and I love that you & Courtney have such a good "core friendship", and I like how you are so in "awe" of your parent's relationship. My parents have been (happily) married to each other (& only each other) for 34 years. I always say my Dad is my Mom's "biggest fan" and my Mom thinks my Dad is the "most brilliant man she's ever met". I understand the whole thought process of "staying single" until you are ready for a comitted relationship (& I too was in a relationship for 4 years) and I get your point of view, but don't EVER let anyone get in the way of your friendship with Courtney. She will be there to pick you up if you fall, and that type of person is so special that you should "hang on tight". Keep up the chivalry and just don't be too caught up in "being single" with "Ms. Right- Now" that you miss the future "Mrs. Right" in the process of your game of "1 on 3". Keep on the "upward slope" and you will be alright. You're one of the good ones...but a diamond in the rough.

Matt - I totally disagree with OhSoCynthia - you THINK you are a player - but you have a bit part. You are the guy most women would/should stay away from. You think you are "all that", but in real life, you are really just not really very much at all. A guy that thinks they are -usually aren't!!

I think you work hard, its just bad taste to go to dinner with 3 girls but if that is who you are... that's fine. I wish men your age would settle down. I just think if you want kids you gotta get a woman you love by 33 to be a nice "man" to the "woman" you want to marry. I am 29 and I still don't have one and am waiting for you successful men to stop playing and realize there are biological clocks. Oh and it gets harder to get pregnant too. I am sure you are nice you just need to watch yourself on tv. I am very much like your friends, I identify with Courtney the most. So pretty and just wants a man to start it with. Maybe then you will get it. I also do not care how many million you make for your daddy...i don't know if you are just dumb or i'm analyzing you too soon in the season...we will see.

For the love of pete, just put a ring on it already. That's pretty much the only thing you need to do here. If you didn't know Courtney was the girl for you, you'd have already tried to sleep with her. In the meantime, you've been making her psycho-jealous.

Matt, you are a good guy. But total damaged goods sense your engagement didn't go through. If you want a family and this southern tradition, work through your issues. Stop desrespecting your dates by having an entourage show up for it. Just so you don't have to feel awkward in conversation one-on-one with your date. Egh!

OhSoCynthia

Oh, Matty. It doesn't matter how many times you SAY you are not a player. You so are. But it's really cute how you truly seem to think you aren't. You are young and single and (I'll give you this much) you are honest. I appreciate that. Have fun and enjoy the ride. You are a cutie pie and I am enjoying watching the drama!
