DO NOT go on another date until you have read this book...
on April 27, 2010
When I first saw the title of this book, my heart sank. You know when you have an idea for a great new product and you procrastinate and then you walk by a store window and there in the window is your idea!
I have been teaching a 4 Step Process for Attracting Your Perfect Mate for 7 years, and I just started a blog, and I have all these notes for writing a book. I was so jealous when I first saw the title of Patti's book. I felt like Robin Williams in Good Will Hunting, "He stole my line".
Then I started watching The Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo regularly and I read the book. WOW! This is truly an amazing woman and her book is BRILLIANT! The introduction is a must read. It explains everything you see on the TV show. Patti Stanger has been there and done that and lived to share her wisdom in an informative and most entertaining way. For example on page 14 of the introduction she exposes that she went to a "spiritual santero" to cast a spell that would bring "Mat" back to her. The spell works and Mat comes back, however, looking back, Patti realizes she actually wanted control, and that is what she got when Mat showed back up. She got controlled for three years.
That is the Universal Law of Attraction. Each of us is like a radio transmitter sending out your true vibration, and that is who you attract to listen to your station. Which brings up Step Two. Mirror, Mirror. This chapter is all about "What's on the Outside DOES Count. Some people may be turned off by this because they think it's what's inside that really counts. I can understand that reaction, however, the conversation about mastering inner beauty is a whole other book. To be truely attractive you must have inner AND outer beauty in balance, and Step Two of Patti's book is a great place to get some valuable tips on mastering outer beauty.
I will have to add Mirror, Mirror to my Perfect Mate classes. It's about Attracting Your Perfect Mate by looking in the mirror of your date, and that reminds me of one of Patti's most perfect tips. "No sex until monogomy", there is a good reason for this tip; oxytocin bonding. Trust me, if you don't already know what that is, you will want to buy the book just for that information. It could save you years of suffering and heart ache.
I found a lot of other great tips like the one in Step Four on page 123, "YOU CAN'T CHANGE HIM!" followed by "Every woman thinks sex is the glue, and they are so wrong." "Finding the right guy is like finding the perfect pair of shoes.... You want to be able to stand and walk in them for blocks and still be comfortable."
This book will truely prepare you to Become Your Own MATCHMAKER.
I unconditionally recommend it to anyone who is single and dating or wants to be married, or in a committed relationship.
