The Lion King
Madison lets us know what's going on with Charlie and what he thought of Patti's assessment of his dating style.
Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to let Patti set you up now?
She is the best at what she does. . .and she got me "buzzed" at lunch and I said yes. LOL. I trust her also as a friend. In addition, she was willing to change the normal format and have just a few selected guys which made me feel more comfortable instead of the usual messy mixer of 20 plus.
Bravotv.com: Was Patti right? Are you a lazy lion when it comes to dating?
I am a lion, but lazy, I am not.
Bravotv.com: What did you think of the guys at the mixer? Were you impressed with who Patti found?
In all honestly, even though it was my request for a smaller mixer, when I walked out and found only four guys. . .I got kind of nervous. I could tell right away only two caught my attention, so the odds weren't looking good. (See pics of the men Patti had to choose from)
Bravotv.com: What did you think of your cohort William? Did you debate switching with him for any of his guys?
William was sincere and I hope he finds love. He was very sweet. As for swap-a-roo'ing with any of his potentials, no thanks. They were picked for him for the right reasons, and not for me.
Bravotv.com: Why did you like Charlie? Was it his Patti-approved haircut?
Charlie is cool, masculine, athletic, and fun. His hair was a wild mess, haha. Patti helped that lion mane indeed, but he still needs a spritz or two. LOL.
Bravotv.com: Why did you choose Charlie for your date instead of Luciano?
I chose Charlie because I felt we had a lot in common with each other. So if we did have chemistry, we would have a lot of fun together. At the end of the day I'm looking for a partner who is not only my lover but my best friend.
Luciano is very handsome and put together but I didn't feel all the "goooodnesss."
Bravotv.com: What did you think of your date with Charlie?
My date with Charlie was the perfect day. We had beautiful scenery, great conversations, and a very relaxed afternoon topped off with a great meal. It felt like we were on a mini-vacation getting to know each other, and I really enjoyed it.
Bravotv.com: What's happening with you and Charlie now? Did you ever go on that second date?
Charlie and I have stayed in touch but I think he travels even more than I do. We've made efforts to reconnect but between our schedules it's been difficult. . .we shall see.
Bravotv.com: What did you learn from working with Patti? Have you changed the way you date at all?
Patti is a friend and she's also the best at what she does. But if she's calling me a lazy lion and I disagree -- I might have to take another look at myself. Like I said in the episode, I am just being patient, completely focused on my career, and busy. However I am also looking for love, so if that means I need to carve out more time and be more proactive when it comes to perusing that man . .then that's what I shall do, otherwise time keeps ticking; I'm not getting any younger.
