This was my first experience being on a reality show, so naturally I was nervous. I had been so busy launching my female oriented energy drink, Her, into Target locations nationwide, that I hadn’t had time to meet anyone special. Here I was in my twenties, and I was spending all my time building a brand, not building any relationships with women. So the timing was good. My mind wasn’t on women,.and I seem to be myself when I’m not trying to impress anyone. I definitely don’t think Patti was impressed with me, but the feeling was mutual.
Right off the bat, Patti freaked out when she caught me getting the number of a girl who was leaving the show. I mean, Patti went off. You would have thought I did something serious. I didn’t. A girl asked me for my number. Not a felony. She said I was breaking the rules (which I had never received). What was I going to do though? Say no? I didn’t want to be rude. Patti and I butted heads there, but it all worked out. Like tuna fish, she is an acquired taste.
I did like some of the girls Patti lined up. My mini-date with Katie, the blonde, was great. She’s a very sweet girl. I’m sorry she had to spend the big date with David. My date with Melanie was interesting, to say the least. I wanted to drive race cars, something I love to do, but Melanie wasn’t into it. So we had dinner. Yay. If you think real dinner dates are strange, trying going on one with a film crew. What can I say about the date? The crew was great.
If there’s anything I learned from this experience, it’s that I know what I am not looking for. Hopefully someday I can find what I’m looking for: a smart, funny, beautiful girl to share my life with.
I think Patti calls it like it is...then assumes a whole lot in addition. She probably is good at her job, by matchmaking standards, but the rant she went off on in casting, wooosh!
I speak of the guy for the millionairess who simply said he makes 6 figures. Ok, maaaaybe he was just looking for a rich girl to sponge off of, at least that's what Patti automatically assumed. No wait, she assumed a lot more! How does "I make 6 figures" translate to the right to yell "She doesn't want to surf on weekends, she doesn't want to party, she wants a husband!"??? Maybe that guy was great husband material, and just what she wanted. I can safely say she doesn't need a guy with lots of cash, she's good there. Yeah yeah, same things in common, but I don't buy it.
As long as every girl she sets up with the millionaires also makes 7 figures a year, ya know so they have that in common, then I won't accuse Patti of having gross double standards. Why do I think I'm safe on guessing this is not the case though, hmmm.
I watched your episode and I feel for you. I think that Patti gives some really good advice for people who are sterotypical and socially enept. Personally I saw a man who seemed like his last relationship was comfortable and probably didn't expect to need a dating coach at this point. After all you're successful so why wouldn't your relationship worked. I'm not at all surprised that the longest relationship at 27 is 9 months because before that age who realistically can commit to someone else without understanding who you are.
I think once you find yourself you can find someone you can love and appreciate. If you're not content with things in your life (ex. where you live) how are you going to be content in any decision you make in that environment. I say continue to focus on you, where you want to be and figure out what keeps your interest, like a consistent hobby you do regularly (besides travelling...think basketball or something) then think about the reasons why you like that hobby and take the characteristics of it and apply it to your love life. If love becomes a hobby you like you do, you'll do it all of the time and do it well. Best of luck to you!
I wonder why women over 50 aren't featured dating younger men. I for one have found men my age and older to be lacking in manners charm and appearance.
Where does an intelligent attractive Jewish woman go to find a great dating experience??
Brett...is adorable. he looks alot like this guy i dated last summer. whoever's lucky enough to go out with him--don't let him go.
Regarding the show in general...I think it's great. Patti is entertaining because she just lays it out there and tells it like it is. Sometimes she seems a bit brash but then we fortunately get to see more of her and all her kindness, good intentions, great personality, and the fact that she really knows what she's doing. It seems like most of the women are quite young. That makes sense on some levels, however, today more women are older and still single and looking young and fantastic. Where is the help for matchmaking in this category?...because matchmaking is so much more effective than online dating.
I saw this show the other day for the first time and found it very interesting. I usually don't enjoy reality shows but this caught my attention. Guess maybe because I like the way Patty tells it like it is or should be. She stresses some morals and appropriate behavior. Brett, several times you talked about looking for "new" things and that turned off your date. She felt threatened like you might always want to find a new girl. Next time change the wording to maybe "I like LEARNING....". Good luck in your search for love. Patty, you should also include mature women as a new twist. We need love too! All in all, I love your show.
Seriously... ripping off a Norman Rockwell painting? Either the David guy is just a massive douche and no one at the show noticed the rip, or the producers wanted him to look like an artist, so they scanned a classic and put it on the wall. I guess they don't expect their viewing audience to know any thing about even that obvious of a famous artist. (posted from above, http://www.busilink.com/images/BoyHisDog.jpg)
I love watching Patti, I know she flips out but I think she has good reason to when it happens, she's a precise person. Anyway, I watch these shows with bated breath because I honestly hope that the millionaires in question find someone they truly click with and that marriage is in the near future after they've entered the club. I put so much stock into relationships working out, it pains me knowing that things fall apart. The divorce rate is over 50% which is absurd. Don't people think before going into marriage anymore? Anyway... I agreed with Melanie about being nervous to get involved with you, you do seem to have a bit of ADD. But I hope you find the person that is worth stopping for, and that's how you'll know... you'll sit there across the table from her and think, "God, if my passport was revoked tomorrow I wouldn't care so long as I could be with her" And I hope you meet that girl soon.
