The Millionaire Matchmaker, Patti Stanger, is single again.
Patti recently split from her fiance, mortgage banker David Krause. She confirmed the news on Instagram and turned the breakup into a blog post about the lessons she learned from the relationship. She explained, in short, that they were very different people who wanted different things and while opposites attract they don’t necessarily make the best spouses.
Patti has been criticised for being unmarried and yet advising other people about their relationships. She insists, it doesn’t matter that she’s single! She’s still a successful matchmaker.
“This was an incredibly difficult decision for me to make, but it is one I needed to do,” Patti admitted shortly after the breakup. “David and I undoubtedly didn’t break up because we don’t love each other. David is amazing and we remain very good friends. We shared a home and dogs together, we truly were a family. I did feel a lot of love towards him, just not the right kind. I wish him the absolute best.”
“I know there are going to be people who will ask how I can be a matchmaker when I don’t have a man myself,” Patti admitted. “I am a human and I have my own issues, but that has nothing to do with my job. I have hundreds of happily married couples who found each other because of my matchmaking.”
Patti added: “I am still hopeful that I will find my happily ever after. Every relationship brings you closer to the one that lasts forever, and for that, I am thankful and hopeful.”
