"Two years ago, I was depressed because I hadn't found the true love of my life," Patti told PEOPLE. "I was like, 'What's wrong with me?' I'm smart. I make money. I'm pretty. What's going on?' I told Jill, who said, 'Something is running in your unconscious that is preventing you from finding love.'"
Jill's observation really hit home with Patti, who instantly started focusing on positive, subliminal messages to try to counteract the negative thoughts she believes were preventing her from finding a soulmate.
What happened next changed everything: "Forty eight hours later," Patti said, "David walked into my life."
David is former baseball player David Krause, the man she's been dating ever since. "We are living together," Patti told People, flashing the promise ring he's since given her. "Things are great. I'm really happy."
And now Patti plans to use the same subliminal-messages technique to help others in the same boat. "The unconscious is the bus driver and if it has no map, it has no direction and that's why you can't figure things out," she said of why she teamed up with law-of-attraction expert Dr. Joe Vitale and hypnotist Dr. Steve G. Jones to create a new dating site, AttractingaSoulMate.com. "My goal is to find everyone love."
