This week was a doozy. I almost had to fire Justin. I found out he got a number from one of my daters.
But our two clients were great this week! The first one was Stefan Dahlqvist. He owns Moods of Norway, one of the most popular clothing brands in Scandinavia. I met him at his store. His stuff is so colorful, pinks and oranges.
I brought David to make sure he wasn’t gay. He’s not. He’s actually sort of into guy stuff, has a motorcycle which cancels out the pink limo. He likes the outdoors, camping. I called him the peacock, but told him he had to channel his inner falcon to attract the kind of woman he wanted. I think he got it.
My other client was Courtney Kerr from Dallas. She hosts a morning talk show, is a fashion blogger and she was featured on Bravo’s Most Eligible Dallas. She’s still single. It’s always an on again, off again with Matt.
So I took this as a chance to try to set her up. Courtney had one really great relationship. She got broken up on New Year’s Eve during the countdown -- can you believe that? So I had to convince her to stop thinking about the past and about Matt.
But she also likes to take control and take over, and no guy wants that. You sometimes have to let the man be the man. I think she heard me.
So we had a beautiful mixer at my favorite place, Tru in Hollywood. I decided that both Courtney and Stefan could benefit from starting the mixer blindfolded! They couldn’t be distracted by how the daters looked at first. They just had to get to know them by talking, just talking, nothing else but talking. Soon they had their favorites picked out and they got to take a look and pick their mini-dates.
Something was going on with Courtney and Stefan. That’s right, it was happening, under my roof. He was really making her laugh and I think she really liked him. But the two of them went on their mini dates anyway, and got to meet two other people each.
In the end though, my instinct was quite right. Each of them liked each other so much that Stefan asked Courtney out on the master date and she said yes!
I knew he was in really good shape when he immediately took her to a Country Western bar, hired a teacher to teach him to two-step. Then he had a gorgeous dinner prepared in a private home, overlooking the hills, where they could talk and get to know each other. He even had famous Scandinavian singer serenade them.
Finally he took her home, dropped her off in the pink limo. I really think she liked him. He kept talking about inviting her to Norway, but he’s in L.A. and she’s in Dallas. We’ll see what happens.
