ABC show tonight - How to get the guy

For weeks I've seen this ABC commercial for a new show which starts tonight - How to Get the Guy - Season Premiere. The premise is that four single women in San Francisco, who are in their 30s, are given advice about how to find THE guy for them.

The hosts promoted the show on a local radio program this morning. I am curious. It could be amusing, it could be lame, it could teach me some things. It sounds like they will be trying to change ways of thinking (like being unrealistically picky) and teach some good habits. I must admit I certainly feel like I fit the profile of the women who will be on the show (but where's the techie gal?).

Most likely it will teach some very simple, common sense ideas. The appeal is seeing people apply it, which is very different from simply reading about it in a book.

Chi's been pushing me to try harder to meet men. She's trying a different Internet dating site and wants me to try as well. [Sigh] I know it's about volume... I'm just so tired of it. It's sad that dating feels more like a chore these days than a fun thing to do.

I've seen the ads for the show..and it scares me a little bit. I'll probably end up watching it out of curiosity. But I feel like shows like that just reinforce the stereotypes that all women over 30 are man-crazy..as well as the fears that there is nobody out there for us.
