"We go on dates thinking that person is our future husband or wife, without getting to know them, as we live in a fantasy and an illusion of romance."
"The empires of the future are the empires of the mind."Patti Stanger on Winston Churchill
"Every saint has a past and every sinner has a future."Patti Stanger on Oscar Wilde
"Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something - your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life."Patti Stanger on Steve Jobs
"I never think of the future - it comes soon enough."Patti Stanger on Albert Einstein
"It is not in the stars to hold our destiny but in ourselves."Patti Stanger on William Shakespeare
"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."
