Okay, so there's clearly more than just one thing that I wish people knew about relationships, but the title sounded good, and its the Thursday before a holiday weekend; can ya blame me?
Just wanted to share something that I reflected upon this week that would be useful for you to know.
Its actually a pearl of wisdom that was inspired by no other than Ms. Patti Stanger, The Millionaire Matchmaker herself.
As you may know, I met with her last June when she co-taught a workshop with my Matchmaking Institute colleagues and I in LA.
Well, it looks like I get my dose of Patti every June, because this week, I attended her NYC premiere party for her new show, MillionDollar Matchmaker, which is airing on July 8th on WE TV.
In the first episode of the show-which is pretty hysterical, by the way- Patti says:
"Healthy dates healthy........."
So, of course, this means the reverse is true:
Crazy dates crazy.
But you know that, right?
Something you might not know-or might not be as intimately acquainted with as I am-is the idea that EVERYONE is a little crazy. And because of this, I think that people-when dating or in a relationship-seriously need to just embrace this notion and work with it.
Instead of giving up after three dates in hopes of finding someone better, instead of shutting down in the middle of a fight and deciding you just want someone who doesn't act the way your partner does, instead of throwing in the towel after X years of marriage.....
Just accept it.
You are crazy.
I am crazy.
Everyone is crazy.
So when you find the person that you love who matches your level of crazy, hang on, work it out, and be crazy together.........
