Patti stanger tips for online dating
Krutika Mallikarjuna: My main question is that I tend to date pretty intelligent, well-off guys that are in their twenties and they appreciate the fact that I'm smart and that I'm a writer — until they find out I'm moderately successful. You're five women to one guy here so you wanna make sure you spread your network. Join organizations, like, what's your favorite hobby? AM: So I can date, like, a 24-year-old finance guy. She tried to reinvigorate my faith in men in their thirties not only because there are gentlemen among the rabble but because they have much higher earning potential than their twentysomething counterparts. She didn't tell me what I wanted to hear but maybe what I needed to hear: Your look is fine, it's your attitude that sucks. PS: Saturday night could be date night should be every night of the week cause you get to sleep in on Sunday. You can go out with your girlfriends, maybe get online, maybe individually date, mix it up, different neighborhoods have different types of men, especially in the suburbs. Passive-aggressives are the men that don't ask you out, but want to be asked out. I thought her advice was pretty traditional, archaic, and backwards. So, I hate people that say they're "bad texters." I actually just wrote an essay about it. PS: Thirties have nothing to do with it, age is just a number.
It had been decades since I was last on the dating scene, and I thought that it would be as easy as it was in my 20s. Posting my online profile, I felt another layer of vulnerability. Are you into babysitting, is that what you're into? Let's find a guy that mirrors what you're looking for. Alana's response: Patti approved of my new platinum blonde hair (and my pre-existing FACE) so that was great. Ain't nobody got time for that, I need a man, not a child with an expensive haircut and suit collection. Whatever you like he's gonna like and then you're going to bring it together. I stand by my original statement that hot drummers are trouble but I think finding someone with similar interests who can be your best friend is so important. I don't know where they hide out, they're known as the Chupacabras of dating, they hang out in certain places, like, maybe Ellen's house? Sorry Aunt Patti, but any New York woman who's lived here more than a year knows that Wall St bros have a lot money and come with a lot of emotional problems and a pesky drug habit that they 'totally have under control'. At the back of a Guitar Center maybe has a booklet where people meet up and have a cocktail. Something of that magnitude because that's the glue. PS: I have to ask these days, be politically correct. Not attracted to him, but do I just reply to him and go out on the date anyways? In the gay world you don't have time for this crap. It wasn't my cup of tea, I like men, but I do understand you. RC: My resolution this year was to post-judge, not pre-judge. Also, I was unsettled by her suggestion that I date Perez Hilton, because I view myself more as an Andy Cohen kind of guy. I messaged the reality star back suggesting we be friends, and he did not respond.
Unless they're in Silicon Valley, and you're in New York City. You need a guy who's older who has his own money and makes more money than you. Why don't you head down to Wall Street, pick a bar that has thirtysomethings, plant yourself, and wear your sexiest dress — show the ta-tas — and then call me.
