This is no ordinary dating show and she is no ordinary matchmaker. For the past six years, matchmaker Patti Novak has been warming up the lonely hearts of Buffalo � a city with one of the highest populations of singles per capita � with her no-nonsense style of tough love. Now, she is letting cameras into her sessions and on dates with her clients�.sharing the secrets of her success with the world.

The Simon Cowell of dating, Patti's brutal honesty and gut instincts are like nothing you've ever seen. They may not end up in a hot-tub at the end of every episode� in fact, more than likely, they'll end up in hot water with Patti for not following her advice!
