Romance On TV: Dating A Millionaire Means No Sex
There is something fascinating in seeing how the obscenely rich live. Who hasnâ€™t drooled over the mansions in Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous or obsessed about Tony Hawkâ€™s personal skate park on MTV Cribs? And now, with Bravoâ€™s The Millionaire Matchmaker, you get to see how they date. Or at least how they date on reality TV. The series premiered last week and Iâ€™m kind of hooked. Unlike Matched in Manhattan, thereâ€™s less take-away advice for the average viewer, because dating a millionaire is not like dating a normal man. Not everyone can date a millionaire, but the requirements arenâ€™t as stringent as you might think. You just canâ€™t be a gold digger, and you canâ€™t be ugly.
In the series premiere, third-generation matchmaker Patti Stanger introduces one of her millionaire clients to one of her rules: No sex until theyâ€™re in a committed, exclusive relationship. What would happen if everyone followed this rule (besides less STDs going around)? [BravoTV.com]
