I have known people who are addicted to chocolate.   I have know people who are addicted to exercise and working out.  So what is a matchmaker doing writing about strange addictions?  Well love and romance, in a sense, are addictions as well.  PEA (phenylethylamine) is the one common factor in chocolate, exercise and new love.  PEA is a stimulant that the body produces naturally.  It is responsible for the high that surges into our brain chemistry causing the feelings of euphoria, alertness and attraction.   Read more

Caregiver Syndrome

Some of the nicest people I have ever meet are caregivers.  You know the ones, always doing for others, typically putting their own needs aside.  When a caregiver chooses a career it tends to be one in something like social work, teaching, nursing etc.  They choose these career paths because it makes them feel good about themselves.  It gives them purpose.  When they fulfill that “need to be needed” in their career choice great things can be achieved.

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

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.

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!
