Patti Stanger doesn’t have her own show Millionaire Matchmaker for no reason.  After the New York Post reported that reality star Kim Kardashian was spotted out and about in NYC with singer, John Mayer, Stanger had some serious advice to share: “No!  He’s a douche bag.”  US Magazine caught up with the matchmaker to discuss whether she thought there would be fireworks or if the date would be a disaster.  Stanger insisted, “She’d chew him up and spit him out and chew him up again.”  If his dating history with celebrities such as Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Aniston wasn’t reason enough, Stanger insists, “Kim’s a class act, so I’d never put her with him.”  While Mayer might not be the one for Kim Kardashian, there is hope for love in her future.  The Millionaire Matchmaker believes Kardashian needs “an A-list actor who likes a brunette hottie…She needs someone who is strong, who will allow her to build her empire. She needs some one serious.”  Sorry, John; maybe next time.

What are some tell-tale signs of a player?

Cupid’s Advice:

While you might not have the advice of a matchmaker at your disposal, with these helpful hints you’ll surely be able to weed out the rogues from the real gentlemen:

1. Midnight phone calls: While it’s great that he wants to hang out with you, phone calls or text messages consistently coming after midnight should have you concerned.  What are his intensions?  And at that hour, are you the only one he’s been talking to that night?

2. Rumor mill: There is a reason Hollywood starlets are wary of John Mayer.  When rumors circulate, you can’t always tell what’s fact and what’s fiction.  But when your friends voice concerns, listen up!  They have your best interests at heart.

3. Authenticity: When it comes to getting to know you,  if you feel like he’s simply asking questions without really being concerned with the answers, trust yourself.  Not being genuine in probably just the beginning of disappointment.  Chances are his insincere side will be sure to follow.
