Effing awesome

Okay, I've watched Millionaire Matchmaker. Not for the reasons you think.

I actually started watching because I had a bizarre experience with one of the millionaires asking me out last fall in an innappropriate way that gave me major oogies, and so that hooked me into what I considered a trainwreck of a show. Just the worst qualities in both sexes meeting and mating. Greed vs. lust. Uck.

But then....the season finale was spectacular! A bachelor actually looking for love and marriage. Who listens to Patty the matchmaker instead of his groin, and picks the grounded intellectual close to his age with a masters degree instead of the cheerleader in college whose contribution to the conversation is that she likes to wear stud earrings with cute animals on them (I shit you not).

It's great to watch this couple get along. They align on four qualities I've only found in a couple men in my lifetime: intellectual, emotional, phsyical and emotionl butterflies. Bliss!

(I would actually add character to that, and I think character takes more than a night to judge...you have to have a string of actions to analyze).

And at the end of the first chaste date, after calling her mother and grandmother, he proposes to her.

Siiiiiiiiiigh. Love at first sight. I so believe in this. Anyway, great episode. Check it out if you're a romantic looking for the real deal.

Don't you know blogs were created to provide a place to rat out the inappropriate behavior of "Reality TV" stars? For god's sake, spill;

Hmmm...I can say...

opening with the line "You look like you'd be fun to make love with" didn't work on me...
