I enjoyed this episode, because we get to see another side of each one of us. In particular I really enjoy seeing Drew's passion for DIFFA. It's a major deal in Dallas, and to be a part of it is a special thing. I was also on the committee a few years back and it is a rewarding experience to say the least.
For me, it's nice to see one of my passions in life...running. There's nothing better than good music, a great day, and a long run. See, I promise my life doesn't only revolve around dating and running around town... Although who doesn't enjoy those things, ha! I'm humbled by work, family, faith, an good, healthy living.
I hope you're all enjoying the show and watching this journey called life. Ask me any questions regarding any topic @mattnordgren on Twitter. Also visit my website www.MattNordgren.com for more contact info and detailed information on my foundation.
Matt - How hilarious it is......you take out three or four girls on one dinner date......but you didnt like it when Neill was talking to Glenn? Maybe there is a lesson here. Did you ever think how the ladies might feel when out with you? One at a time - and pay attention to the one you are with. Enjoy you on the show, however.
Why didn't you mention Neil ditching you at the event? Your blog sounds like a well scripted middle of the road don’t offend anyone speech. Come on get real so we viewers can get to know how you really feel.
Matt, so you put yourself out there.......here is the problem, you give off this devil may care attitude so that when you are putting yourself out there....no one knows....not even your date. You prolong this too much and no woman will take you SERIOUSLY. You will be fun, unavailable Matt while everyone else moves on in their life. Oh wait, Courtney will be available because she too is so self-involved that no one will want her. Time to smell the coffee, you have smelled the roses long enough. Time for big boy pants or the ship will sail without you.
It’s hard to feel any sympathy when you never clearly defined your escorting Neill to Glenn’s event as a REAL date — typically you just invite women for the company and make it very clear that you are NOT looking to get involved. Also, as Courtney said, Neill was your Plan B. So for you to get upset that Neill mingled at the event is just a little narcissistic. It’s not fair to others to play both sides of the fence.
I'm a New York city girl but you are one of the reasons I'm movitvated to go to Texas they always say the men from Texas are gentlemen , hope to meet someone as sweet as you andof course as handsome as you, best of luck in your life as for Courtney she is crazy about you but I dont know if thats good or bad but be happy Matt.
Scripted, very well. In the first episode, I thought okay, I do like a guy who is not going to lead a girl on. By the next episode, you sounded so scripted it kind of seems like you're just one of those guys who says, "Ok, don't fall in love with me". You know, those are the guys who WANT a woman in their life but were at one point hurt by someone, yet can't get over it. You try to come off so full of yourself. Invite 3-4 ladies to dinner and act like you've got a heir-um whenever you want it but when a girl you're with, takes a look around a room and sees there are better men than you out there and goes for it...........that's not ok? Bahahahahah. Stop it, you're killin' me!!
Matt you are simply a player no matter how you try to cover it up. I know that you know that your best friend Court loves you. I honestly don't know what you see in her as a friend. She is malivious, self centered, uptight, rude, and very hateful. I may not know her as much as you, but from what I see on tv I don't like. You really didn't tell Neill that you were going on a date, so just cut her some slack. She really likes you, and is such a sweet woman. You seriously need to grow up and stop playing all these game with woman. Or you end up all alone just like your friend court.
Matt, trying so hard to like you but I am not seeing any depth to you. If you are not interested in a relationship, why all the dating? Why aren't you hanging with all your buddies and having a grand old time? And I love Neil, she is great, young and fun.....
I agree with everyone 's post so far. Matt you try to play the uncommitted one and when your date does the same you seem offended. WHAT????? The only thing I do disagree with , is that Court is in love with you, she is not in love with anyone but "Court". If and when and I do think the operative word here is "WHEN" you and Court do reach 40ish and you two are still alone and get together because no one else can stand the test of time. DO NOT GET TOGETHER..... What a nightmare for both of you it will be. To be perfectly honest the best couple I can see actually making it are Neill and Glenn. These two are real and have their head on straight and are down to earth genuine people.... AND by the way that whole act that you (Matt) are trying to sell about wanting to be just friends with benefits is Hogwash... If you really thought that , you wold not have gotten so upset when Neill went and hung out with Glenn... Also you were so shocked that Glenn had so many women (and Men) bidding for him that your narcissistic/insecure/immature/spoiled character was showing "Big Time". I paused it on one of your faces where the speech bubble should have read : "What the Heck! What about me? I am much prettier , what is wrong with you people?."
Some one once said "Looks fade.. and.. dumb is forever" I think it was Judge Judy???? lolol
There have been some really good points made by many of the people commenting on your blog.
Seriously, Matt, your huge ego is precluding you from seriously dating a quality woman like Neil. If she's not the one for you, then move on and allow her to do the same. In general, what are your intentions, or do you even know the answer? Glenn is so much more of a ladies man, and he seems authentic, and confident enough to not parade around with multiple women at a given time. Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. It's very arrogant and exposes your immaturity and insecurities.
Grow up, get some personality, and humble yourself.
Matt, i have a guy friend just like you in Dallas. He is the greatest guy. But like you he was always the ladies man (nothing wrong with that.) I knew instantly that he was just a friend. He made it always very clear to everyone that was around him he was not ready(like you). I really dont understand why no one else gets it. if you have made it clear then it should be clear. It is not your fault that someone else thinks there is more when there isnt. You can only take blame for you. However, if you see that a girl wants more then just dinner and a nightcap. Dont ask her again to go out. Because she will continue thinking you will change your mind and you wont.
Matt, you seem to want to announce to everyone all the time how your not looking for anyone, enjoy single life etc. but I think thee protest to much! Your Mmantra is "I don't date" so how was Neill to know this was a date? Your confusing.
It may be enlightening for you to be reminded there is a difference between most eligible and most desirable. As hard as it might be, throw away your copy of "W" and drop the George Bush mini-me persona. Your time would be better spent building character and most certainly a better set of manners. There's usually nothing substantial or truly appealing about a man who's only love is his own reflection in the mirror.
Matt, Are you for real? Calling 6-8 women on a night you asked Courtney to go to the club with you! My Husband of 30 years said he has never seen a guy act like that, as he looked up from Sports Illustrated. Maybe we are just ol' fogeys, but if our 26 year old Son acted like that, his Father and I would have some serious talking to do. Mercy! Even worse to see him act like that in front of millions of people!
Very well said so far everyone! Matt does seem to protest way too much. I thought it was hilarious to hear you whining to Neil about her hanging out with anyone else but you while on a non date! I tried to see the most eligible side of you, but clearly you are not. Matt is way to much in Matt's way. The reflection you speak to every day is only still there because it is unable to turn and walk away. I wsh all the ladies in the show who "date" you luck, they will all end up dazed and confused because not even you know what you want.
I was my husbands "wingman", notice I said husband! Happily married for 16 years and parents to three beautiful children.
For the few of you that are defending Matt....I get it guys, really, I do. I just don't find him interesting or attractive. The bachelor thing - he was soooooo out of place. At least Glenn has the personality for something like that.
Your awesome man. Don't let any of these fools commenting let you think otherwise. Your being you and thats the best way to be bro. Peace..
Matt, Good for you going out and having as much fun as you wish while you are single. What I respect about you most is that you tell the women up front that you are not looking for any type of relationship. I believe honesty is the best policy and as long you are not leading anyone along, as it appears you are not, no harm, no foul. Go out and enjoy your life to the fullest, you only live it once.
