“Matchmakers are for millionaires.” Wrong! My clients are everyday people like you and I. If you look around the grocery store, these people are my clients. Each single man or woman is unique and comes with his or her own set of circumstances. Also each person has their own set of financial circumstances as well. I believe everyone deserves love and I will design a program which will work within each person’s specific set of circumstances, both emotional and financial. Programs are designed to help each person find their dream without tapping into their grocery money. The truth is hiring a matchmaker is typically less expensive than a divorces might cost.

No one has breakfast at Tiffany’s and no one has affairs to remember.” Read more

A few days ago I signed up for on line webinar for a life coaching class. One of the things they talked about is that a lot of us do not know how to say Thank you. We often feel guilty when someone gives us a compliment. Now we don’t think on the surface we feel guilty; it is mostly subconsciously. For example when someone says,” Hey you look great in that dress.” Most of us instead of saying thank you we will say something like, Read more
Ok, everybody’s following Tiger Wood’s life implosion. Why does a billionaire (yeah, billion), married to a knock-out model with two beautiful children and numerous multi-million dollar product endorsement deals throw it all away for a couple of Hooter’s waitresses? Are all men cheaters? Do all men lose good judgment in the face of some excellent cleavage?
Would Tiger have done the adultery he did if he knew he would get caught? Well, if he knew FOR SURE he would get caught AND if he knew FOR SURE the consequences Read more

From one matchmaker to another: “One of my personal clients is very much in need of conversation tips on dates. He is extremely nervous meeting new women and has had a lot of disappointment in his personal life. I’ve been working with him for almost a year now and have given him some conversation starters, but he is asking for more! Do you have any suggestions I may be able to pass his way?”
