Don't: Lay it on so thick
Oh Mike. I had good feelings about you. You are handsome and rugged. You seemed romantic and delightfully aggressive, but perhaps as it turned out you were too aggressive. When Destin and Rachel picked you for the alternate master date, it seemed like you could convince Patti that her picker was off, but then the dinner was a lot. All of that talk about her being beautiful and giving her the creepy lion glance and then saying, "the worst part of the date is that it ends." Too much buddy. And then you didn't even go in for the kiss. You asked?!? Haven't you seen her show? It's a major pet peeve. It looks like you'll be ranching alone, friend.
Destin had it right, if you think you're being intense, the person on the date probably thinks you're hair doll level crazy. So let's keep that all in mind.
Do: Go for it
Jon and Patti's date was a lot more relaxed, and was the perfect, if a strange combination. Everybody loves a foot massage and a zipline combination. Kudos to Patti for facing her fears and managing to make it through that.
I think I recognized aggressive cowboy Mike on that one show where the drag queens compete against each other "untucked" something. I don't know if it was taped before or after Patti went on a date but I kind of wonder why he was on that show, do you know anything abou that episode. It might be totally for fun or whatever just a little taken back when I finally connected the face to the person.
