Dating Over 40: Matched in Manhattan – Another Matchmaker Reality Show

Well, Lifetime Television has clearly jumped on the band wagon with it’s newest show airing January 4th at 9:30pm est. Matched in Manhattan features Matchmaker and Daitng Coach, Matt Titus who will share his insights and attitude adjustments for better dating success.

Does anyone have time to watch all t hese dating shows. And this begs the bigger question: If you’re watching, what aren’t you doing sitting in front of the TV? You guessed it! You’re not making yourself available to meet new prospects!

But I digress.

Matt teams up with his new wife Fadal and another office mate to make matches and help clients find their soul mates. With all of these experts, you might think I’d be quaking in my boots because of the competition. But I don’t see it that way. Instead I see that things will be heating up as all this attention to matchmakers and dating coaches helps to remove the emotional stigma of asking for professional help.

Yeah, I’ve heard that people can feel too much like a loser if they ask a professional for dating advice. But on the contrary, there is a whole different perspective on this with a much more positive and realistic spin.

Is Tiger Woods a loser because he works with a coach? In fact, rumor has it that Tiger has more than one coach. Here’s a man at the top of his game and he still has need of advice and tactics? YES! Thank you Tiger for all of us coaches.  You see, he’s at the top and to stay there, he needs all the supoort, info and insight he can get. That’s just plain smart.

Here’s another example. Let’s say you want to start a new business. One of the savviest things you can do is to learn from someone who has already been successful at the same business.  Ding Ding Ding Ding. Is that bell going off in your head?

The same is true for dating. You aren’t a loser asking for help. You are savvy and smart. You are ready for and  seeking success. You are taking advantage of available resources to guarantee your triumph in the dating realm.

It doesn’t mean you are too dumb to figure it out yourself. It does mean you are TOO SMART TO WASTE TIME when you can benefit from the knowledge and strategies of an expert.

What’s lame is denying yourself all the help and support you deserve. Let me know if you watch Matt and tell me what you think.

Merry Christmas to all!

  1. Libby,
    Glad to know you enjoy the blog! Yeah, it does look like fun, but a requirement is to let it “all hang out.” I have a friend who works at Lifetime Network and she says it will get “very real.” We’ll have to watch and see how direct the matchmaker is – maybe as direct as the Buffalo matchmaker – she’s fun to watch, but not sure how fun to be it would be to get instructed with millions of viewers listening in!

  2. Ronnie-
