Sex & the Single Woman: Victimized By Reality TV

I admit it: I am a total sucker for television marathons. I can’t help it — I get completely pulled in.

My latest predator: “The Millionaire Matchmaker.” I have enjoyed the show in the past (who doesn’t love a witty woman telling men how to find true love), but put me in front of a day-long marathon, and I forgo all of my responsibilities.

Thankfully, I can pull a (slight) educational element out of the show. For someone who writes about relationships, Patti is a fascinating study. How can one woman tell so accurately what other people need? Is it a result of years of practice or just genuine intuition?

I know Patti’s matchmaking record is pretty solid; it makes me wonder, however, what would happen if I tried a matchmaker….
