Drive through dating…

So you put up a picture of yourself, write a few paragraphs full of clichés like “I’m easy going, honest, loyal and hard working etc.”  You spend hours online sorting through profiles full of the same clichés you just wrote about yourself and hope to find someone who has things in common with you.  Just because you both like bowling doesn’t mean you are going to live happily ever after!

What we all want is to find that person who fulfills what needs we are missing.   We want the other half who completes us.  Read more

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.

love-3

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

I can’t tell you how many times I have heard of that one phrase destroying a potentially good relationship.  Most recently I was talking a good friend in DC down from what could have been a very self destructive plan.  She had been dating this guy for about 2 months and decided it was time to take down her online dating profile.  When she signed on (after not signing on in two months) she chuckled because the site had generated a new match for her and it was her new boyfriend.  She went to his profile out of curiosity and discovered that he was “Active within 24 hours!” Read more

Still looking for love online?

In today’s society we are governed by 3 things.  The laws of man, the laws of God and peer pressure.  The first two do not apply to the internet and online dating.  On line dating is not policed by anyone, which makes it easy for people to exaggerate the truth and flat out lie.  I can’t even count how many times people have told me of their frustrations with lies about age, weight, income and appearance while using online dating sites.

eHarmony ~ A Social Experiment

tgAs a matchmaker I am always curious as to what others in the industry are doing.  I have heard a lot about most of the popular dating sites out there and have always been intrigued as to why so many people have told me they have been rejected by eHarmony.  In efforts to understand this I spent about 30 minutes completing their profile questions about me personally to see how accurately their matching would work.
