The book contains a lot of dating advice, which is largely generalized to fit "any woman, any stage of your life" demographic as opp I've only seen Patti Stanger's show "The Millionaire Matchmaker" a few times.
The book contains a lot of dating advice, which is largely generalized to fit "any woman, any stage of your life" demographic as opposed to being limited to those seeking a millionaire.
Sexy is a confident, fun loving, happy, sensuous, approachable state of mind that no man can resist.” “Don’t think of him as the prize for which you’re competing against hundreds of other women.
Don’t go out with them, but make sure you take reservations.
Remember, the best restaurants are booked weeks in advance, why not you?
I don't expect to incorporate everything Patti said, but I will say that a lot of it coincides with other dating-with-marriage-as-the-goal advice I've heard.
I definitely plan on giving at least some of her tips a whirl with the next go-around.
I fit into her target audience, as I'm a single female hoping to one day get married before my eggs shrivel up and die, so I read this book voraciously.
The tips and advice she gave were eye-popping at times (in particular, the date code of "Coffee is cheap, drinks are an audition, lunch is an interview, and dinner means business - the business of romance."); practical in others (do a "dating detox" before you get out there to find your dream partner); debatable at times (always put on lipgloss/lipstick before stepping out in public, and you must lose the weight [though I admit, this one might be truer than I might want to admit:]), and informative at others (There are statistically more men in certain West Coast cities [LA, Seattle, Dallas, Phoenix, San Francisco:], than in East Coast cities [NYC and Jersey topping the list:]).You are able to identify Patti's trademark sauciness immediately (She is the friend who will tell you your ass DOES look huge in that skirt, and then help you find a gloriously flattering dress), even through written word, which is very entertaining.The focus of this book is how to get the ring in 8 steps.Having little patience for "reality TV", I was surprised to find how addicting her show can be, and how fascinating it was to see the dating match-ups hits and misses.I can't say I watched much of the show, but when she went on Oprah and they plugged her book, I went ahead and bought it.Without giving away too much of the book, I do want to share some great quotes that I pulled from Stanger.
