I was very pleased to hear on Millionaire Matchmaker tonight that my favorite match-made couple, Millionaire Bill and Millionairess Heidi (who turned their backs on the dating pool peasants and went straight for each other) are still together, despite having to carry on a long-distance relationship.
In tonight's episode, Patti briefly checks in with the couple to make sure they're on track.
Bill says they're "taking it a little slow," and Heidi happily adds that they "talk every day and are getting to know each other."
No-nonsense Patti replies, "But remember. It's not all blackberry. It's not all text. It's not all e-mail. You gotta speak on the phone. A woman cannot fall in love unless they hear it on the phone."
Man I love that Patti. While I've never been a 'phone' kind of girl, I gotta hand it to her. Too many people these days rely on all the gadgets available and forget the fundamentals of dating. Now fess up if you've ever had a strictly text or Facebook relationship . . isn't it funny how people can be so bold behind a computer or phone screen, but morph into a completely different person when they find themselves naked without those luxuries?
(I'm not really expecting you to fess up now . . just some food for thought.)
