Recently I watched an episode of Millionaire Matchmaker. It’s a reality great show about a matchmaking agency in LA run by a woman named Patti Stanger. My daughters and I really like it.
On one episode, Patti’s client was a successful young woman who was seeking a future husband. Patti gave her tons of advice about how to act, how to dress, what to say etc. She gave her a total makeover. However, she neglected one important detail. This woman lived in a house that was entirely decorated in a Hello Kitty theme. For those of you who are in the dark about Hello Kitty, it’s a children’s character, and it is a kitten. This “eligible” bachelorette had decorated every inch of her home with Hello Kitty décor, even her bedroom. Imagine a typical American male feeling comfortable in a home that is hot pink and filled with stuffed animals. Don’t think so.
Our personal space is a reflection of who we are at this moment in time, our past and our hopes for the future. Clearly this woman was not serious about meeting someone. She had a wealth of great bachelors to choose from, and in the end, she selected the one who was in it just for fun. Patti should have gone one step further with this woman. She should have visited her home to get a better understanding of who she was. Then, if the woman was serious, a simple home makeover should have been on the to-do list as well. The stuffed toys should have been removed, the bedding changed etc.
We attract what we want in our lives, whether or not we care to admit that fact. So girls and guys, look around your home. What does it say about you? If you’re seeking a partner, are you proud of how your space could sum you up? If not, start cleaning house.
