Bethenny Frankel: Dating Is Brutal

Bethenny gets real about dating and what she really thinks of "red scarf" guy.

By Bethenny Frankel
You Brought Me a Drink, So I Brought You a Drink

It’s fun to see all of our individual friendship moments. Then we wind up together for the ultimate in: speed dating. I kind of like this concept. Nothing is worse than going on a date and realizing it isn’t a fit from the jump. sit and plan your exit. Are you tired? Sick? Simply not interested? And so on.
It takes guts to be open, and I really tried to engage as much as possible. It was so funny running into Brian, AKA “red scarf.” From what little I know, I thought he was a super nice guy who I texted later that PM to set up with Carole. He is a pursuer and the guy who texts you after one date to say he will take care of you when you’re sick. When you meet someone, you’re also weeding them out for your friends. I thought it was very endearing that he was so honest about coming there to see me. That was sweet and takes courage also. Who knows? Maybe I think I’m open but actually not really. My entire life revolves around Bryn and during the time I'm not with her is when I jam all of my business in with a scramble to cover grays and get a manicure. Dating is brutal. At this age, I do find that dating online or with a matchmaker is probably wise, but I really dread it. I love stories, fate, and the moment. I love happenstance. I am a hopeful romantic who would love to be in a great partnership but would rather be alone than feel alone in a relationship. I am fortunate to have a beautiful daughter, financial means, and an incredible career, so anyone I date is simply for that connection and sharing. Who knows how my story ends? Xoxo
