The Matchmaker's Back

Patti Stanger shares how it feels to be back for love-struck second season.

Hi! It’s so good to be back! A lot has changed since Season 1 — Alison is no longer with the company, my right hand Destin has been promoted to COO (best thing I’ve ever done), Chelsea is ready for love, Destin’s girlfriend, Rachel, is now our Director of Registration (more on that in future weeks) and me… well, my men have been listening, my girls have been happy and my boyfriend Andy and I are going strong!

Check your cockiness at the door, mister. And please...lose the corvette.

This past year both Chelsea and Destin have been matchmaking fiends — personally handling their own clients and getting them into relationships and helping me with the difficult ones. Speaking of difficult ones, can we talk about David and Brett for a minute? Let’s start with David.

When I went to David’s house and met his ‘butler,’ I was appalled. When I saw the Madonna/Britney kiss painting in his dining room, I was appalled. When he was fed grapes, I was appalled. When his ego wouldn’t stop… you get the idea. But I gotta say, he pulled it out in the end and really stepped up to the plate as a gentleman. A little more of that and I think he’ll find love. Check your cockiness at the door, mister. And please...lose the corvette.

As for Brett - DATING ADD. He needs to stop with his nomad ways, quit living out of a suitcase and find a place to call home. No more ‘networking’ girls — talk sincerely with them. Connect. Slow down. Work is important, but so is love. How you can find that “special someone” if you’re never in one place more than a few days? I’m surprised his dog even puts up with it.

What is Dating ADD? When you’re all over the map — you’re not focused. As Destin put it, “Shiny ball syndrome.” Watch for these symptoms: doesn’t put all of his attention on one girl, his needs come first, no stability in ‘home,’ subject changes, cell phone always going off, keeping female ‘options’ open. I think it might be good to get deeper into this over the next few weeks. Maybe some advice? How about Ritalin for the matchmaking impaired? Hmmmmmmm? xoxox

Making a Match: Larry Birkhead & Melyssa Ford

Find out what Patti really thought about sexy Melyssa and shy guy Larry's dates.

This week I got to meet one of the sweetest guys in the world, Larry Birkhead: the boy from Kentucky. There’s just one problem: he hasn’t dated in like a decade. This guy needs practice. I mean, he’s drop dead gorgeous and he can’t do anything. I can send him out into the world and the world of a mixer and a date, but he could botch it. Candace and I will give him some mock dating experience and I will pick his date for him. The first time he’ll meet her will be when they go out for the first time. No chance for him to get nervous, and more importantly, no time for the girl to look him up and see who he is. He can stand on his own two feet and just be himself, not Anna Nicole’s ex.

My other client this week is drop dead gorgeous: Melyssa Ford. She’s the star of Blood Sweat and Heels, she used to be in a bunch of music videos, and she was nicknamed the "Video Vixen". I know it’s hard to turn off the beauty and the booty, so I bring her to doctor Pat Allen. Doctor Pat and I have worked together for years. Doctor Pat told Melyssa that she should be leading with her brain. Melyssa can be sexy no matter what: but can she look for the guy who’s interested in what she has to say, not what she looks like?

So I’m doing something new: I get Candace and David to bring a bunch of good appropriate men and women to the mixer. I just want a handful of guys for Melyssa, and a handful of girls for Larry. I introduce the best ones to Melyssa for her to choose from, and I’ll pick the best girl to set up Larry with on a blind date. Melyssa picks Jay. Jay listened to the conversation, and remembered Melyssa liked bowling and cigars. And he took her on a perfect, fun, get-to-know-you date. Meanwhile, Larry met up with his date at Universal Studios. He had a private tour set up, and he and Michelle met for the first time. They had a blast. She knew who he was, but they got past that and they got to know each other. And he took her for dinner and even got a kiss at the end.

So in the end, I’m so happy that both Larry and Melyssa got to learn something. Larry got to know he can be himself and there’s no need to be shy, and she knows (Melyssa) that there are guys out there who can look past her booty and see the great girl underneath.
