I was walking through a bookstore the other day, something that has become a routine for me these days, and I caught sight of the book “Become Your Own Matchmaker: 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate” by Patti Stanger.

Patti is a professional matchmaker and she has her own company called the Millionaire’s Club, where as the name pretty much says it she finds love for dateless millionaires. She’s also got her own reality show on Bravo, called “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” which is how I came to know of her.

Anyway, Patti is known for being super straightforward, cutting to chase and being sort of Simon Cowell when it comes to telling people what’s holding them back from finding true love. It’s one of the reasons why I like her show so much, she’s just honest with people whether they like it or not.

So the reason I’m bringing up Patti and her book is because I started to flip through it and came upon the page that you can see below. It’s from her section on where to find dateable single men. This is of EXTREME interest to me since I’m a single woman who is always on the lookout for eligible bachelors that don’t act like the dudes you see on the show “The Bachelor.” Ya know, a guy that actually wants to be in a relationship, but I digress.


An excerpt from Become Your Own Matchmaker: 8 Easy Steps for Attracting Your Perfect Mate by Patti Stanger


The paragraph states that NASCAR races and any outdoor sporting event like them are a great place to meet men. I already kind of knew this having been to a bunch of races, men don’t usually take dates to a race and if they’re with someone then they’re WITH that person.

It got me thinking about meeting guys at races which is something that I’ve never had happen to me, like, ever. Well there was that French dude, but whatever. Oh wait, there was that one guy that invited me to some supposed raging party in the infield at Chicagoland but it didn’t seem like a smart thing to do since I was alone.

And then I started thinking about you guys. One thing I’ve learned so far from the 2010 ‘Fabulous’ Reader Survey is that the majority of you are single women in your 20s and 30s. No wonder we get on so well together. You’re just like me! :)

I guess the moral of this story is that if you are seeking the dude of your dreams he might just be at a NASCAR of IndyCar race. Given the fact that the only place I want to be next year is at a NASCAR race, he HAS to be there.

I didn’t buy the book, but I’m thinking about it. :)
