VIDEO: 'Millionaire Matchmaker' Patti Stanger's Rule? Date Three Men at Once

The Bravo love doctor shares her tips for snagging a mate and her personal matchmaking horror stories

Whether you're looking to find a rich husband, or just searching for an hour of guilty-pleasure TV, The Millionaire Matchmaker's Patti Stanger is your go-to woman.

As Bravo's resident love doctor, Stanger, 48, takes wealthy, single men (and occasionally female "millionairesses") and uses no-nonsense business strategies to set them up with their dream mates. She may have her skeptics, but Stanger lets her impressive success rate do the talking. And if that's not enough, she's walking proof that her service works: She met her own fiancé, real-estate executive Andy Friedman, through a matchmaker more than five years ago.

So, what makes Stanger a dating expert? She uses rules that have passed down through generations. "Some of the best advice I received from my mother is to date a spare and a pair," she tells iVillage. "Date three people at the same time until the right person pops."

Watch our exclusive video interview with Patti Stanger to find out the biggest mistake women make in dating -- and why her mom's matchmaking for her often led to disastrous results.
