When asked if I would consider going on "The Millionaire Matchmaker" early this year, I happened to be surrounded by some of my dearest friends, who all said, "DO IT!" They all thought I had nothing to lose and really needed a push when it came to dating. Even my mother was excited to hear that I was making a sincere effort to take the time to be more social. Like me, ultimately she would love so much for me to get married and produce some grandkids.
I went into this with an open mind and heart, and I believe that I was tad naïve to say the least. I tried my best to do whatever Patti suggested, but I had absolutely no connection with anyone at the mixer and opted, after being yelled at by Patti, to go on a blind date.
Again I thought I had nothing to lose! My mistake.
My situation on the show was not that uncommon. How many times have you been introduced to someone with the hopes of meeting your prince charming but you guys just don't "click?" This happens many a time in the real world and normally ends with smile and send off of, "It was nice meeting you." This is what happened with Kevin and I, a very mundane ending. It had nothing to do with being a "celebrity dater." Patti's "diagnosis" could not be further from the truth, which is known to my family and friends.
I have learned much from this experience. Most importantly, you'll be happy to know that I haven't given up finding love, even in the most unconventional places and with the news of my two good friends recent engagements, I know that love is just around the corner for me.
