Have you watched “Paul The Male Matchmaker”? If you haven’t, then you really need to. It is really funny. I have watched quite a few “dating” shows over the years. Some have been pretty ho-hum but Paul The Male Matchmaker really struck my funny bone.
When Paul inherits a matchmaking company from his Aunt Cathy, he wonders what his aunt could have possibly been thinking. But he soon realizes it makes perfect sense: by his own estimation, Paul is very attractive, super-likable and a really happy person — and he’s got a fantastic marriage to a very wealthy woman, Teri. Although Paul’s confident that he is the perfect person to help women find love, his approach is going to be a little different from that of his Aunt Cathy. His no-holds-barred philosophy toward dating can be surprising and frustrating to the women he is helping, but no matter how hilarious it may appear, his focus is always on being brutally honest with his clients
In episode 3 of season 1, Jillian (played by Lisa Edelstein) seeks out Paul’s advice on how to get back into the dating world after being in a 4 year relationship with her ex boyfriend. Jillian gets matched up with a ‘dummy’ for a date. Of course, hilarity ensues.
Back in the day, I had a few friends that tried to set me up. One in particular was set up by my friend, Shari. We met these 2 young men down at the beach. Now, keep in mind that I wear glasses because I am extremely nearsighted. This particular day, I decided to take my glasses off to go for a swim. Our dates decided to show up while we were out in the water. Of course, without my glasses, I could not see them very well. I ended up agreeing to a date with this guy. Once I out my glasses on, I realized that I had made a BIG mistake. The guy was a total dork and definitely NOT my type. I ended up feigning being sick to get out of the date. Have you ever been set up with someone that was totally not your type?
