“When it trickles down to dating, it’s even worse because now you’re blaming us that we’re not only taking care of the kids, we’re paying the bills, we got an education but now we’re too smart and now you feel intimidated,” she explained. I would just hate to see that happen because of the volatileness.” In terms of divorce, however, Stanger noted that the Brad Pitt–Angelina Jolie split was enough divorce news for a while.“I think we had enough for the next five years with Angelina and Brad,” she quipped.You begin to wonder why you’re single for so long when no one else seems to be.And it’s not for lack of putting myself out there, which I’m certainly doing.So my fears of embarrassment and wanting to leave came true, but in this case, I wasn’t the one who wanted to leave.I didn’t pick up on any signs of this during the date either, which makes me wonder if I’m much more out of touch than I thought – a depressing thought at 27, when most people are supposed to have a decade of dating experience and expertise under their belts.They won’t hit it and quit it,” the 56-year-old “Million Dollar Matchmaker” host told Page Six exclusively. “They’re getting their love tank filled up by the attention on the apps, so they don’t even feel like they need to take you out to dinner, and it’s very different now,” she told us. Stanger cited Amal Clooney as a prime example of a successful woman who figured it all out. We need to go to the school of Amal,” Stanger said. I think she’s awesome.” Stanger also revealed that her favorite Hollywood couple is Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher, but she said she worries about Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson.“Men are just not men.” Women, Stanger said, have a harder time than ever these days because “childish” men are becoming too “intimidated” by female success. “We have to learn how to rope the man in, how to get babies when they’re too old and they don’t want them. “I think she was going up and down trying to be skinny and doing everything she can, and I just hope they don’t get divorced,” Stanger said.

Here I am, still dreaming of those pumpkin patches (because we never went), still trying to figure out the nature of what it means to love.And it’s not from trying too hard, because I really don’t throw myself at many (nay, hardly any) guys.To be honest, I actually came home from this date and cried — not because of the loss of one potential person, but because I feel like I’m really overdue for meeting someone decent who would actually value me.However, we managed to have some witty banter during the process, so I think it was forgiven. He’s cute and there was no shortage of topics to talk about, and never at any point did I feel an awkward lull or forced conversation that suggests it’s time to call it a night.Then it happened: I was getting ready to suggest we try another place, and he pulled the “it’s-a-school-night card.” A quick glance at my watch told me it had been just over an hour, which, as we all know, is the bare minimum you’re expected to politely stay on a date if it’s secretly making you want to claw your eyes out.
It’s really getting me down, and while I’m considering Ok Cupid (or something of the like), I don’t know that I want to keep facing rejection.
