"On both 'The Bachelor' and 'The Bachelorette,' it seems like proposing marriage is equivalent to saying, 'Let's date.' Everyone knows those aren't the same things."
"A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person."Patti Stanger on Mignon McLaughlin
"By all means, marry. If you get a good wife, you'll become happy if you get a bad one, you'll become a philosopher."Patti Stanger on Socrates
"It is not a lack of love, but a lack of friendship that makes unhappy marriages."Patti Stanger on Friedrich Nietzsche
"How can a woman be expected to be happy with a man who insists on treating her as if she were a perfectly normal human being."Patti Stanger on Oscar Wilde
"Don't marry the person you think you can live with marry only the individual you think you can't live without."Patti Stanger on James C. Dobson
"Up until age 40, most men are just not as mature as women. So, it makes sense that a lot of women date up in age a bit."
"Think back to yourself at age 18. I know I was mighty different than the Patti I am today. As we grow up, we grow out of our haircuts, our apartments and - often times - our romantic decisions."
"Women are smart in business and dumb in love. They won't date outside their zip code, let alone outside the city. They are city snobs."
"I dated a guy and he liked me but I didn't like him. I went through his wardrobe and cleaned out his house and got him to get a new car. He said to me, 'If I give you $10,000, will you find me my wife because I want someone like you?' And within a year, he got married. That was the first match that led to me leaving my corporate job."
"I have put gay dating on the map."
