The Rules According to Aimee

Patti's proud of Millionaires Aimee and Matt: both let their guards down and had great dates.

Read Patti's full transcript after the jump!Aimee is a controlling freak and has way too many rules. Matt, on the other hand, is wild Matt versus real Matt. He's all over the place. Aimee is a northerner, a self-made millionaire, she loves dancing... but here's the key: she doesn't like to be touched. She has a lot of weird rules.

Matt's an heir to a sand and gravel company, he's a pro-wrestler, and he loves when girls fight over him. I met Matt at Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles (what a place to go to meet Matt; he loves waffles). He's a super nice guy, and he pretends to come off as the opposite. Wrestler Matt isn't real Matt: there's a Southern gentleman underneath.

I met Aimee at the office. I figured that all those rules lead to control issues. For Aimee, I needed a man that doesn't mind controlling women, likes to dance, and doesn't come on too strong. For Matt, I want someone who's sweet, can deal with Matt's crazy-wild side, and is great to take home to mom.

Our mixer this week was at Cinespace. Aimee was a bit controlling at the mixer, but eventually calmed down. I tried to steer her in the right direction (I picked Ken for her), and she liked Paolo. So, she picked Paolo.

Matt liked Vanessa, but eventually chose Shelise, which was a really good choice for him. Matt took Shelise to a yoga lesson and a facial. He went all out: he had flowers and candies for her. He had a great date where he called her dad and asked him to go hunting!

Paolo took Aimee to salsa dancing at 3rd Street Dance and to dinner at Sadie LA. They had a really nice date, but it wasn't a match; they had too many differences. Although Aimee and Paolo weren't a love connection, Aimee did great: she's feeling more comfortable with the touching, and doesn't think the world is going to end if she kisses a frog. Matt followed my advice and acted like a super Southern gentleman. He and Shelise have already gone out once and will go out again.

Making a Match: Finding Romeo's Juliet

Patti talks working with rap royalty Romeo Miller, aka Lil' Romeo, and helping him master the love game. 

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 Perez Hilton and Larry Birkhead to Bravo's own Real Atlanta Housewife Sheree Whitfield!

Each week, we're asking Patti to weigh in on every episode in her exclusive blog. She'll tackle everything from the good (Lil' Romeo's all grown up!), the bad (a shirtless first date?!) and the hilarious (Patti talks using tongue!). 

This week, she talks about finding love for Master P's son and rapper Romeo Miller, teaching us all about first dating kiss etiquette and more. Check out the latest episode vlog below and watch past episodes here.

Okay this week I had a really fun client, 25 year old Romeo Miller. He comes from rap royalty, he’s the son of Mater P. and he was famous as a little kid, you probably remember him as Lil’ Romeo. Well, Lil’ Romi is grown up and is looking for love.

Romeo has got a posse of friends and they all go out together at the clubs and they hid on all these women and I think if I can break him of the friend’s habit then I may be able to help him find a partner. He’s young and he’s got a lot of bad habits.

Lil’ Romi is grown up and is looking for love.

The next thing we do is a figure out a mixer.I sit on one side of him and Shaun sits on the other, and we help him go through various different women. He ends up with two really great women to go out with.

He’s got this nice, intelligent, beautiful woman and he takes her to body painting. Right -- it’s like he just wants to see her in a bikini. She’s a nice girl and she’s into him but he won’t kiss her, and she kisses him. Eh, not a good date.

I meet with Romeo and tell him he’s got to court a girl, woo a girl, not just put himself in a situation where they come to him.

He goes on a second date and this time I think he does a lot better. He takes Mica for a romantic dinner, they have some conversation, and he’s being a gentleman, courting her, doing the right thing.

He comes in to talk to me the next day and he’s learned a lot. He didn’t end up hitting it off with Mica, but I think he finally knows what he wants.

He remembers Taliah the girl that got away, the perfect girl from the mixer. So we call Taliah and she comes down to the office, I see the love connection and I immediately say it’s okay for them to go on a date but I want him to kiss her right away. It’s the perfect date for him.
