Learning the differences between our wants list and our needs list can be difficult sometimes.  I do believe the Rolling Stones said it best but today, I am going to focus on some of my favorite quotes from Carrie Bradshaw and friends because we can all relate to a little pop culture, at least us girls lol.  “Welcome to the age of un-innocence.  No one has breakfast at Tiffany’s and no one has affairs to remember.” Read more

However there is so much more to forgiveness in order to find inner peace and have the ability to love once more. When you look deep into yourself and have the ability to forgive someone in this way, to be able to forgive yourself, you become less of a victim and you can open up your heart to someone else.

Learning to just say “Thank You”

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

Top 5 myths about Hiring a MatchMaker

December 7, 2009 by  
Filed under Blog

“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.

Complicated?

warningI was on my Facebook today and noticed under Relationship Status there was an option for “It’s Complicated.”  Which lead me to the thought of why not “I’m Complicated!” and while we are at it lets toss some more in the mix…I’m not perfect!

Wouldn’t it be nice if we all came with warning labels?  “High Maintenance, Fears Commitment, Co-Dependent, Momma’s Boy, Jealous Tendencies etc.” Imagine being on a first date and being able to see that person’s true authentic self.  No games, no hidden agendas’ just the real person.  We could decide right there if we were interested in a second date.

I have been getting a ton of inquiries in my email lately from people who read my blog and want to know more about how they can get involved in my dating service and what it is really all about. It certainly isn’t anything like any of the online dating sites out there. In fact, it is very different from online dating. Think of me as an old fashion matchmaker. It actually makes my skin crawl that people buy into the whole letting a computer decide who is right for you theory. We are real people, with real feelings and real emotions that need to be handled with real care and sometimes even a little touch love. Read more

porchswingAs a matchmaker I am usually the one that friends, family, even strangers turn to when they need advice on their love life.   This means I hear ALL the stories, the good, the bad and the ugly!
