Good news everyone! There’s apparently another option out to online dating, and this one is backed by the lady who sets up Millionaire’s in LA. It’s the one and only, bitch from hell, Patti Stanger. Please note, I mean this in the nicest way. I think.
Patti Stanger for those that haven’t stumbled across her top lip yet, and let me tell you, it’s easy to do as it gets bigger every episode of her hit series, The Millionaire Matchmaker – is a 5th generation family of matchmakers. How do I know that tidbit? She tells you at the start of every episode which airs Wednesday at 9.30pm on Arena (Foxtel).
It’s the greatest show every…well I think so anyway. She basically runs this agency in LA, and each week she gets to know two new narcisstic millionaires who are looking for a trophy….sorry, their one true love.
Patti then organizes what she’ll call as an audition, but what’s basically a cattle call of women with tight lycra dresses and perfect spray tans. Although don’t get Patti wrong like I did when interviewing her earlier in the year, these girls are NOT gold diggers.
“So you say that your girls are not gold diggers but how can that be when they have come to you to meet a millionaire?” I enquired. “Well I’m telling you they’re not!” “But how can you believe that? They know they’re getting a millionaire?” Not happy Patti is usually the one’s asking questions so this didn’t go well, “I think you’re being very antagonistic! And I don’t like it”, she says.
“Well Patti, I’m just asking you how you can guarantee these girls aren’t gold diggers when they come to you wanting to date a millionaire! You haven’t got any carpenters on your books Patti!”
And basically this sort of sequence just went back and forth with both of us realizing we, together, were definitely not a match. That’s ok though cause I wasn’t trying to date a millionaire, and I have no doubts, that Patti IS one.
Anyway, that said, I LOVE HER. She’s feisty, she’s tough and she’s highly entertaining.
What the hell is the great news I mentioned earlier? Well, she’s apparently a partner in a dating site called www.spark.com and yes it’s open to us Aussie’s too.
Now, what’s different about this dating site is that it goes into all sorts of depth about your history and your ‘inner child’ type stuff. It even colour codes you so that it can match you with the right guy or girl, and not the one’s that just aren’t right.
And who knows, not only might you meet someone that has been paired up with you based on a bit more than ‘he likes walks on the beach’, and all that other crap, he might be one of Patti’s millionaire off casts. Although, she’d never tell you that, cause apparently she’s always right.
