"Millionaire Matchmaker" star Patti Stanger is known for her strong opinions when it comes to the rules of dating, including finding a man online. And the reality star has words for non-Jewish ladies looking for love on Jewish-based dating sites.
“I like JDate.com. I think JDate is for Jewish people, but unfortunately a lot of the Shiksas (non-Jewish ladies) get on. So sometimes it takes away from the Jewish women, but I do like it,” Patti tells The Huffington Post. “Where else are you going to go if you are Jewish? It’s not hard to find a date if you are Jewish in New York and Miami, but its hard in Texas?”
Patti herself met her boyfriend online. Digital dating can be confused as simply a way to find hookups, not serious dates, she says -- but Patti adds she's not against using online dating sites for that reason if ladies know what they're getting themselves into.
“Women can just have sex for enjoyment, but you've got to remember, chemicals in your body can bind you to the guy if you are younger than 45. You might fall in love with the guy if he gives you a good orgasm, so there is a risk,” she warns. “On this season, I look for my biological parents. I was single for a really long time, then I realized I had abandonment issues. Then I found love online.”
