Is your dating GPS broken?

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. The Quarterly Atlanta brings a new twist to mixing and mingling with flow dating (equal parts networking, speed dating,  flirting marathon). It’s sophisticated singles networking socially. Get your pickers ready!

P.S.S  One Degree From Me is offering Misadventures in Atlanta lucky readers a chance to win admission.  The first 5 guys and first 5 girls to email their name, age, phone number and why they believe they are so fly and a great catch (brandon@onedegreefrom.me) gets a shot at it. Good luck!

The correct answer is: Tony Siragusa (trick question).

On a scale of 1 to 10 — 1 being Halle Berry in the bedroom with the lights off; 10 being Lorena Bobbit in the bedroom with the lights off — how bat-sh!t crazy does a chic have to be before you would refuse to f__k her?

I read my Insurance policy:
Section 3 ; Article 9. Clearly states, if the insured dates or is rumored to be envolved with a
Wacka-Flacka cutter, said policy is to be canceled forthwith!

You bang Halle not for the sake of banging Halle but for all of the residual sex you would get for actually banging Halle.

Y’all know that E.Benet’s rehab really meant “I don’t really think I have a problem. But I am going to make it seem like I’m trying to get better cause it makes me look better than just admitting that I’m an as$hole who can’t keep it in my pants.”

Dude, did you here what was said about Charlie Sheen’s first ex-wife Denise Richards? John Stamos was with her right after the divorce and he said that she was so unhinged in bed that he would show up dressed up in an Ice Cream truck, just to get past the papparazzi and get busy with her. Howard Stern the asked “So, you’re saying it was good?” Stamos replied “DUDE, I dressed up like an ICE CREAM man, just to be with her. What do you think??”

She must be like Jessica Simpson and is “sexual naplam”.

Maybe I missed part of the story, She complained he wanted seex all the time and she felt he was over sexed. Not that he was having an affair.

Fion, it was not the sex that he wanted from her that got him into rehab it was the sex that he was getting from all the other women while married to her.

Gotta wonder….what must a woman be like, look like or act like to be called Sexual Napalm? I would think of all of the compliments, that’s gotta be up there with the best of ‘em…

There is no absolute number; there is instead a sliding scale, depending on the hotness of the chic.

Exactly Raqi V (lol). I wasn’t laughing then. He refused to sign at first making very derogatory remarks to me. He later gave in.
