Dating Drought

Although remaining pink eye free, I have found myself in the midst of a dating drought. Not being one to take an idle approach to things I have spent several lunch hours this week in the ‘Self help’ section of the bookstore. Perhaps I am suffering from Bravo Reality TV withdrawal, Time-Warner shut off our stolen-cable access in January, but there was one book in particular that grabbed my attention “Become Your Own Matchmaker: 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate” by Patti Stanger (a.k.a. Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker).


Much to my dissapointment Patti didn't provide any quick fixes or magic potions. Her 200+ page book felt highlighted by two things. 1) Always wear lip gloss when you leave the house and 2) invest in a good pair of full-body Spanx.

The remainder of the book explained her 8 steps to finding your perfect mate and saying 'I do' within a year. Overall it was 50% Common Sense, 40% Advice you know but don’t like to follow and 10% Things to consider.


For Example...

Common Sense –
Do not go after a married man.”
Agreed.

Advice you may know but don’t like to follow - “Always looks your best, you never know when you’ll run into Mr. Right.”
Ya don’t say? As long as I have been wearing a bra my grandmother would tell me to always look my best before leaving the house. But on Sunday mornings when I’m a need of a coffee fix, you better believe I’m the girl in line wearing galoshes, sweats and chances are I haven’t washed off last night’s makeup and pink eye.

Things to Consider – "Single men tend to gravitate towards the prepared food section of the grocery store."
See you later ‘Gluten-Free’ health food section!


Patti goes into great detail discussing each step. She outlines, what you need to do, how you need to do it, and why you need to do it. Overall she has created what seem to be a dating guide for dummies and the socially awkward.

Now let’s see if it works…

So Patti Stranger walks into a bar, and the bartender says "why the long face?"...

You're hilarious! :) On a disconnected note, I wanted to let you know I just bought, not just one, but TWO (twin set...one for company) of 'the chairs' you so love. I must admit it will be for my patio, but I am having a full fledged affair w/ these chairs. Lucky I bought one for Jeremy or we'd have to fight over them!

I say to hell w/ Patti...go after the guy who thinks you're beautiful w/ pink eye! :)

Cheers!

So I'm no math whiz, but what's the other 20%?
