Get Yourself a "Soulmate'

It's the week-end for love and romance but some of us have not found Mr. Wonderful. Last year I watched some episodes on the Bravo network of a third generation matchmaker who helps millionaires find their true love. I found the episodes very entertaining. On The View yesterday morning the matchmaker herself was a guest promoting her book Become Your Own Matchmaker. This must be for the poor woman who is not likely to travel in the same circles as a millionaire.

Also plugging his self help book for women was Steve Harvey, one of my favorite comedians. He was a guest on Ellen DeGeneres' talk show yesterday talking about the book, Act Like a Lady, Think Like a Man. I liked his presentation of the 90 day Rule. He says Ford requires 90 days of probation to get to know their employees, to see if they are worth keeping and so on. After the 90 days, the employees are entitled to benefits. He thinks women should do the same thing with men. His advice then is, Don't give men any benefits unless you have known them for at least 90 days. Furthermore, he says women should ask men early what their short term and long term plans are. Women should find out if men are just playing or if they are planning a future.
