I had a wonderful experience on the Millionaire Matchmaker. Of course having a typical Jewish mother, I am always nagged about finding someone to settle down with. I’ve been looking seriously, but I just haven’t found the right person just yet. Given my schedule working on a variety of projects at the same time, I don’t have much time for dating. Family and friends have often tried setting me up and recently recommended I try working with a matchmaker. Who better to work with than Patti, certainly one of the world’s greatest. When I had the opportunity to become her client on the Millionaire Matchmaker show, I held my breath and jumped, hoping for the best. I was obviously a bit nervous about the public aspect of being on a reality TV show, but I do work in the entertainment world, so I felt like I could handle the potential risk of embarrassment. After all, I think the pursuit of love always involves some risk.
Some memorable moments during my experience included meeting Patti. I remember walking into her office for the first time. I’m 5’8” and Patti towered over me interrogating me before I even had the chance to sit down. She immediately asked me if I was a commitment-phobe and wondered why I was still single. At 34, I often ask myself the same thing. I suppose meeting the right person happens earlier in life for some people, and later for others. Patti dug deeper and insisted on knowing why my last relationship failed and I was forced to reveal that my ex-girlfriend dumped me because she felt she didn’t love me as much as I loved her. I think it was probably a good thing to have been so honest, as it disarmed Patti, and most of the rest of the interview seemed to continue smoothly.
Patti asked me what I was looking for in a woman and I gave her a laundry list of important characteristics… family oriented, smart, educated, fun, interesting, Jewish if possible, a dancer. Patti seemed to agree I had reasonable expectations. I know Patti listened well, because she found Tatiana, one of the most wonderful people I have ever met. Tatiana is all of those things and more. I enjoyed meeting her and getting to know her over the short time we spent together. Ultimately, the chemistry just wasn’t there, and we became friends, but I can tell you that Patti impressed me, introducing me to a quality girl like Tatiana with similar interests. If you’re in the market for a matchmaker, I would highly recommend working with Patti!
Uri, Just wanted to say I think you and Tatiana added class to the show. What 2 lovely people you are.
I felt Patti was hard on you and wanted to change you. I am here to say you are teriffic just the way you are and pls don't change.
I have 2 daughters and I hope someday they will bring home a young man as real and respectful as you- and I would be proud if my son grew up to be as charming and honorable as you as well. Thanks for adding class to the show and please always be yourself--you're a good man, Uri. Take Care and Good Luck!
Uri was such a nice guy. My advice would be hang in there and don't settle but I would also tell him listen to your Mother more. Hashem gave you a Jewish mother for a reason...LOL. Does she have any friends with daughter's or granddaughter's, if yes keep an open mind and meet some of them. Good luck....
Uri, you are gorgeous. I come from a Jewish family too. We just celebrated passover, actually. My name is Megan, I am very petite, 100lbs petite and 26 years old. Check out my MySpace. Princess is what it is under out of Indianapolis, IN. If it does not go anywhere with anyone soon, look me up.
i think ur one of the nicest guys who has been on the show - too bad i'm not jewish!
but we can still be friends...
Uri Just wanted to thank you for proving that Gentlemen(real men) come in all sizes. I wish you luck in your search.I was 30 years old before I found the woman I have been married to for over 30 years. Keep the faith she is out there. John
Uri, I hope you find someone special soon, you seem like such a great guy and really deserve to be happy! Wish you were in NY, I would snatch you up :)
I think you and tatiana have the right chemistry. So what happened. You are very sweet and nice, maybe a little shy though. But that is good. If Tatiana didn't want you that is your loss. Just always be yourself but don't get so wrapped up in your work. Take some time for the woman in your life. Women liked to held alot and hang out with their man. I have an awesome man in my life too. I have breast cancer and he is there for me day and night an he helps me run my business too. I met him on the internet myself and we have been together for 5 years. So hang in there if you are not looking hard it will find you. Who knows it might be someone you see everyday at work.

Hello Uri, I saw the show last night, and you are a CLASS act! From that brief time on the show, you were able to show viewers what a great man you must obviously be! You were very respectable, kind, and of course incredibly handsome as well. I've seen some of the people on that show, and none of them hold a candle to you. You seem like the real deal; very genuine. Not always easy to find here in Florida! As the saying goes ... keep your heart open, and love will find a way. It sounds cliche, but romance really is all about being ready to take that leap when the opportunity presents itself. You gave me hope that there ARE men out there who want to treat a woman as a lady. Wishing you all the best!
