For anyone who has seen Patti's show, it should come as no surprise that Patti is most interested in matching rich men with perfect women....not the other way around. But this book is very specifically tailored toward a female audience. The tone is irreverent and funny, but I'm told that a lot of the rude comments that I thought were jokes....were not. So I leave it for you to decide.
(1) Get over past relationships thoroughly. Cleanse your palate and actually refuse dates for a period of up to 3 months while you're focusing on what you want in a relationship. (I love this part - but could 3 months be 3 years? I would like that even better.)
(2) Determine your 5 non-negotiables, and, you know, don't negotiate them.
(3) Lastly, she has a LOT of rules about how to date.
--Manipulate him into going out on the weekend. (Um, what if I don't care? And what if I'm not a manipulative witch?)
--Never meet for coffee. (Apparently, it's an audition, not a date.)
--Get a ring in 6 months, or you're outta there. (Wow...)
There are tons of other things like don't move in without a ring, don't be intimate without marriage on the table, manipulate him, manipulate him, manipulate him....sheesh. No wonder she's still single.
So, this book is definitely not for everyone....and definitely not for me.
