Time for Patti to Give Me a Raise

The Navy Seal Of Love

Its analyzing vs. quick decision when it comes to Patti's love life

So the other week I touched on my knack for love advice and assessment, which started the whole "what do you think of Patti's relationship?" and, "how is your own relationship going?" line of questioning thing.

Well, Patti's relationship is just as unique as she is (what else would you expect?) On one hand, she strives for perfection within it, but still accepts the human factor of it. She loves to be treated with respect and chivalry, and at the same time loves to treat and give her mate all that she can. A lot of times I see her more youthful when she's with Andy, more carefree and calm.On the other hand, she's still Patti, and Andy is still Andy. It's New York meets California. It's analyzing vs. quick decision. It's two completely different people who somehow compliment each other.

Do I think it will last forever? Do I think it's a perfect match? Do I have a love assessment? Yes, I have answers to all of those questions. Am I going to tell you? No. Let's let Patti and Andy live their lives together and see what fate has in store for them; and watch it all unfold on the little screen. Voyeurs! The lot of you!

As for me, my own relationship is just darn peachy. I have a beautiful girlfriend with a good heart. She's smart, supportive, loving, affectionate and a spectacular kisser. We know each other in and out and can handle each other's quirks and neurosis for the most part.

I think working for Patti has helped me get to this point in my life. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't even have my love (see below.) I learned so much about relationships and dating and reaction and thought processes and love and desire. I was so well-armed when I met Rach (my g/f), everything was easy and fell right into place. When you already have love and chemistry, a little knowledge can go a long way. There truly are commandments of dating one should follow.When I started with Patti, I was a little cynical, cranky and had given up on the whole love thing. I was going to stick with late night partying and random flings for comfort. That didn't work for Patti. She immediately started schooling me on how to treat dating, perspectives of love and myself. I learned trade secrets some people would kill or die for. I became a navy seal of love! She trained me right, then put that training to the test by introducing me to Rachel. After the first date, BAM! DONE. LOVE. Then, my first client, BAM! DONE. He's in love. And so on and so on. I wish I could tell you what I know, but in the wrong hands in can be totally ruined.

There are very few true matchmakers out there for a reason. It's best if you just hire us to handle you and walk you through it. That's what we're here for. So, what about you lovebirds out there? How are your relationships going?

Making a Match: The Real Perez and Sexy Sonja

Patti strips Mario Lavandeira of his Perez Hilton persona and takes Sonja Morgan's love life into her own hands with a secret weapon.

Season 8 of The Millionaire Matchmaker is one of the most dramatic ever. This time around, Patti Stanger is helping plenty of unlikely clients find love, from Larry Birkhead and 'Chili' Thomas to Stephanie Pratt.

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive vlog. She'll tackle the good (crashing Chilli's date), the bad (Sonja's fast-burning match Thomas)—and the hilarious (kicking Jill Zarin out!). This week, she talks about setting up RHONY's own Sonja Morgan, Perez Hilton, and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

 So this week I’m setting up Perez Hilton. I met Sonja Morgan and she’s from The Real Housewives of New York City. She’s got a high profile divorce from American royalty, aka J.P. Morgan. So Sonja wants a down to earth, really strong guy with money who can travel at a moment’s notice to New York. And Perez wants the ultimate husband. So this is a big deal. And because his reputation is so bad, I gotta find guys who will date him.

 We get down to Sonja’s guys and there’s Thomas and Kent, which end up being the last two guys that I really like. Thomas is super sexy and hot, a little overt, too much wanting to get into her pants. And then there’s Kent who’s so steady, he’s got four kids, he’s really rich, and more importantly, he’s kind of a slow burn -- whereas Thomas is a fast burn. 

 Now, we grab David and we go through the guys for Perez. It’s a blind date. So Perez and his date meet for the first time. I knew this was going to happen, everybody in the gay community, it’s such a small town, and everyong knows eachother. I was like aw, sh--. But, the good thing about it, Perez had a I really good time. I think that after Greg accepted Perez and didn’t make him feel bad about his past, and Perez realized that Greg was a really nice guy, they became friends. It wasn’t a love match, but his confidence soared. I think this was a real learning lesson.

Perez wants the ultimate husband. So this is a big deal. And because his reputation is so bad, I gotta find guys who will date him.

 Sonja chooses Thomas at the mixer and I was kinda bummed because I knew that Thomas was all sex and all talk no action. I had something else up my sleeve. Just to protect myself. So the secret weapon I had was Rocco Dispirito. Rocco Dispirito is a good friend of mine. He just had a new cookbook out and I thought, ‘What a great way to get to know someone if you cook with them!’ So me and Rocco were on a date, and Sonja and Thomas were on a date. And before I knew it, they were flirting and touching and kissing, and I was like, ‘Oh sh--, oh sh--.’ I decided to pull a switch.

 So I pull Kent in and Sonja’s in shock because she didn’t know she was getting two dates and not just one. And of course, Sonja being the flirt and Sagittarius that she is, she just rose to the occasion. Before long, they’re on a date and Thomas is out. It was romance dujour!
