Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger Tells Bachelorette Emily Maynard: “You Gotta Date a Pair and a Spare”
When Patti Stanger (a.k.a. “The Millionaire Matchmaker”) arrived at her birthday party, it was with new boyfriend, David Krausse, at her side, and matching love bracelets on their wrists. The jewelry, gifted by David for her birthday, commemorated their three-month relationship — the kind which Patti hopes to build for her deep-pocketed clients looking for love on her Bravo reality show, Millionaire Matchmaker.
Patti took a break from the celebration to talk about how to land the relationship of your dreams — whether you’re on a reality show or not! What’s your advice for someone looking for love on a reality show like Emily on The Bachelorette? OK so The Bachelor, Love in The Wild, Take Me Out, The Choice – look, go with it for fun. If it doesn’t happen, it doesn’t happen. But learn from the experience by identifying what you want. My book Become Your Own Matchmaker says you gotta date a pair and a spare. You always have to date three guys at the same time. They are dating a whole bunch on those shows so looks like they are following your advice! We were very lucky [points to boyfriend]. We wanted the same things at the same time — which is “The Secret” — but nine times out of ten you get this guy and you’re not sure. Let him chase you. I told Stacey Kiebler when I saw her at the Simon G event, ‘George is not easy. You gotta make him miss you.’ Missing you is key to everything. It really is. Where did you and your boyfriend meet? On Plenty of Fish online. I used my book to make it happen.
