On the Bravo show Millionaire Matchmaker, Patty Sanger is often referring to the ” picker.” It’s like some sort of uncontrollable dating GPS device that steers us toward a specific type.
She thinks that the male picker is, well his picker and women tend to pick based on security and wealth . A bit sexist I think, but I suppose women aren’t considered as visual as men are in this regard.
I can’t with say with certainty that I have a single picker. If I were to have one though, it would be my brain. I am very much into a man’s intellect and heaven help me if the man has an extensive vocabulary. Seriously.
When we talked about chasing the instant connection this week, I started thinking of the routes and paths we take looking for it. Are we looking for love in the right places? Is there a right place?
Even when all conditions are right, we’re around those who have common likes and interests, our dating GPS can still direct us the wrong way. I’d argue that we can sometimes even get lost – and you know how some of us are about asking for directions.
Do you think you follow your instincts? Do you trust what your gut tells you? Does it generally guide you in the right direction?
Is it better to be lead by your head or your heart? Do you ever get a sense that your dating GPS is broken or malfunctioning? If so, how can it get fixed?
P.S. Maybe your Dating GPS can steer you toward Modern Day Matchmaker’s event this Saturday.
