Dating Over 40: Confessions of a Matchmaker

 Have you watched the new reality show called Confessions of a Matchmaker?  It’s on A&E at 10pm(est)  Saturday nights. (Interesting program timing huh?)

Patti Novak, a Buffalo, NY matchmaker tells how she sees it.  When discussing dates with her clients, she shares her ideas and advice in a pretty direct way.  Even if clients squirm or deny what she talks about – she persists until they pay attention. 

While the show unfortunately isn’t all that exciting – partly because it is real life people rather than star quality types or scripted stuff, Patti does dish out sound, practical, honest advice that has a strong ring of truth.

I know you’re out most Saturday nights having fun, meeting new people and enjoying your friends. But what the heck?  Set your VCR to record and watch it some other time. 

You will get clued into flaws and struggles of other singles which  might just touch on something you’ve been wondering about yourself.
