Nerves and Awkward Dinner Dates
Brett Jacobson shares more about his experience on Matchmaker.
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.
