I just finished reading Bravo TV star, Patti Stanger’s new book – Become Your Own Matchmaker. While her business is directed mostly at men, this book offers excellent dating advice for women. I agree with much of what Patti has to say.
From detoxing a past love and bad dating experiences, to where to find men (page 103 – a few new ideas here!) to relationships check list and negotiating the ring, it’s all in here. Patti takes you step by step through the process she’d advise if you were her client.
My favorite parts?
Chapter 5 Dating Adventures. Patti has written a whole section on who should make the calls and when. as well as her 10 Commandments for Dating. She also gives a fantastic run down of what not to talk about and why – very savvy!
In Chapter 6 – First Days of Infatuation, Patti gives you a red flag watch list with keen insights into men’s behaviors. I learned a few new things myself and she also confirmed a lot of my experience and thoughts on this subject.
But even better, Patti wisely gives you good flags to watch for and consider strongly as evidence of finding a really great guy. I loved this list because she points out some very important relationship details that get overlooked for things like bald vs. hair and MBA vs. BA.
There are so many good books coming out this Valentine’s Season and it’s hard to know what to read. But the Millionaire Matchmaker’s book is a sure bet!
