So excited for you! I have loved your recruitment story so far, and I know there is a happy ending just ahead.

From the other posts on here, I can tell a lot of ladies immediately went to their computers this morning with their fingers crossed for you (including me). I never thought I would be pulling for "Millionaire Matchmaker" (...I think the show is vulgar), but I certainly have been for the past two days.

Looking forward to hearing how it went for you today!

Day 7: Preference Day

Today was preference day! I was so excited to be invited back to Millionaire Matchmaker! Because of "maximizing my options" if I still like MM and ranked them on my preference card, then I was guaranteed a bid! I will admit, even though MM was one of my favorites from the beginning, I was a little nervous because I was afraid something might happen or I would decide that I didn't like the house.

I headed down to sorority row for one of my last times as a PNM and received my schedule. The sky was dark and the forecast indicated rain. Although I didn't have to worry about being cut my MM, I still wanted to look my best, so I prayed for the rain to stay away, both for my sake and for the sake of all the other PNM who looked so beautiful today!

Millionaire Matchmaker - Today was much more serious and somber than the previous days. Some of the sisters sang, and it was so beautiful it gave me goosebumps; I could tell that many of the sisters put their hearts into it because they were crying. I was then paired with the same girl who rushed me for Skit Round. I was so happy to see her again! The sisters then spoke about what their sisterhood had meant to them and why there were proud to be in MM. It was very emotional and almost brought me to tears. They then played a video with pictures of their sisterhood, which was also very moving. After the presentation I was able to talk privately with the girl who rushed me. We shared both personal feelings and laughs; it truly felt like we had known each other forever. I was sad to leave, but also excited because I realized I had found my home. This week had been horrible and chaotic at times, but in the end it was all worth it. I found a house that I not only loved, but also that wanted me. I will confess that I did cry a few tears of both joy and relief that this stressful week was finally coming to an end.

Tonight I ranked my one and only house without any doubt or hesitation. I knew I belonged there. As I walked out of voting, I saw so many PNMs who were either crying or had a torn look on their face. I prayed that they too would be able to find a house they loved as much as I did!

Tomorrow is Bid Day, and it can't come fast enough!

A Few Notes

Sorry my post about preference round was kind of cheesy and cliched. I really meant everything I said though (and I think I'm extra emotional because of this long, stressful week). Thank you all so much for all of your support and prayers! It's great to have so many people on your side.

Also, I want to apologize for my choice of television shows! I know MM is not the most appropriate show (it's the definition of a guilty pleasure!) and I hope I didn't offend anyone!

I'm so excited for tomorrow! I will definitely reveal which sorority is my new home after Bid Day!

Dear krtxo:

Wonderful story!

Your description of your pref round does not read as cheesy and cliched. Not everyone is able to experience these emotions or has the ability/gift to write about them.

NEVER apologize for who you are or what you feel.

Next installment: BID DAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

krtxo, your pref post was not cheesy at all! The entire week of recruitment is SO emotional -- if anybody deserves to shed a few tears of relief, it's the PNMs who made it all the way through to pref.

We are anxiously awaiting your news. What time do y'all receive your bids?

You are the sweetest thing. You have a fantastic attitude. You're going to make a great addition to MM.
