How and why to staycation with your lover

Rachel and Destin on a stay-cation with Sin Halo
Everyone needs a little break from the madness that we call life. Between matchmaking, movie making, TV filming and Sin Halo raising, we know all too well about needing some serious R&R! For most people, it’s tough to get away for a long period of time -- not to mention the tons of cash it takes.

Every staycation can be as easy breezy or extravagant as you like… or can afford. Here are some great ideas that Destin and I have done in the past. Read more

Surprise! I have a boyfriend

David and Patti filming Millionaire Matchmaker
The next season of Millionaire Matchmaker is mostly about my journey to adopt a child, but I've also started dating again. My mother finally said to me, "Why aren't you using your book?"

Love the internet

Let's talk about why we’re all here. The internet is the gateway to everything… including love. Yes, it is possible to find love online. The statistics aren’t lying. It happened for us and it can happen for you. We met on Myspace way back in 2005. It started out as a great friendship and blossomed into what it is now a marriage and a Sin Halo! Yes, you will still meet a whole lot of toads and crazy cat ladies, but, as we always say, you have to kiss a lot of frogs before you meet your prince charming. Read more

Dating on reality TV
From Jon and Kate Gosselin to Kim Kardashian, we've all seen that love in front of the camera doesn't always work out. It’s not a surprise.
