So tonight a new TV dating show starts on NBC: "Ready for Love."
This one is not your typical "Bachelor" format. These three guys (and the girls they will be dating) are going to have help from 3 matchmaker/dating coaches.
I am thinking there might be something to be learned form these folks. All the previews suggest that there will be.
One of the experts is a guy who is going to tell the girls what the guys are actually thinking.
Another one's tactic seems to be telling them "what is wrong with you" --the stuff that everyone else is afraid to say because they don't want to hurt your feelings.
I think it is going to be interesting and will take some notes myself.
Too bad we don't all have people like this in our own lives who could tell us the hard truth and explain others' behavior to us!
If you had a dating coach/matchmaker working with you, what would they say to you?
Can we be that objective so as to see ourselves as others see us and take the critique to heart?
Share a hotel room with 3 other Pink Sistahs (esp. if they are forumites).
All your questions will be answered.
I always feel like the people have to give away all their dignity to participate. The motive is good, but the execution is always very sleazy and voyeuristic....
Exactly and you'll hear one month after the show is over that the couple who ended up together broke up. What a huge shock. Those shows should be banned by Congress. Lol.
I'd guess things like, "He thinks you are really hot," and, "To win him over sleep with him." re going to be said. NBC has nothing to gain from Godly behavior. How, why trust a liar?
Gee, y'all tell me what you really think!
You miss my point: what would the matchmatcher/dating coaches have to say to us?
I just got done watching it, so I will share what I heard that made sense:
1) You are your own brand. Be consistent with your brand. Decide what it is, and reflect it through your look, your dress, your conversation, how you present youself.
2) Be in the present moment, not in the past, not in the future.
3) People have a key interest or thing that they are about. Try to make a connection on that right away. Tonight's guy was a musician, so the girls that tried to meet him on that plane did well.
