Look Before You Leap

Posted by Kelleher International on Mar 23, 2018 10:05:16 AM

Sometimes as matchmakers we get emotionally charged inquiries around the general topic of taking things to the next level after agreeing to the terms of casual dating. It’s a topic that will earn an eye roll from anyone eavesdropping on our conversation unless they are in the throes of navigating new love in the modern dating culture. It seems so easy when you're not the one feeling the roller coaster of emotions - hope and fear, confidence and insecurity, complete smite and skepticism.

What is the right move if you’re casually dating and catch feelings? How do you navigate that next move gracefully and with intention? Our Kelleher International matchmaking team is here to help.

Navigating Non-Exclusive Waters

Posted by Kelleher International on Mar 2, 2018 9:55:11 AM

Non-Exclusive dating isn’t a new concept for men who’ve long been playing the field. But with today’s swipe culture, non-exclusive dating is the new norm for the majority of single adults in the dating pool. Often a casual, non-exclusive relationship is the best option for someone working on themselves or making big moves in their career or figuring out the qualities they want in a partner. It can be an ideal way for you to slow down the pace of courtship and simultaneously learn the nuances of your dynamic with various potential love interests.

Winter Warm-Up

Posted by Kelleher International on Feb 2, 2018 12:51:00 PM

It’s the time of year when many singles find themselves in recovery mode. The holiday parties and New Year festivities are a distant memory, and the resolutions made become more like suggestions. It’s tough being a busy professional and single socialite full-time. You’re tired, and the winter blues are setting in.

With short days and long evenings, it's easy to forego the social invites and cozy up with your dog and a bottle of wine instead. It would be so easy to take a social hibernation until spring, but the Kelleher matchmakers are sharing why you should stay active in your pursuit of romance and finding your perfect match.

Martin Luther King, Jr. grew to become one of the greatest social activists the world has ever known. At age 35 he became the youngest person (at that time) to win the Nobel Peace Prize. As we wrap this week celebrating social activists and other Nobel Peace Prize winners whose missions surround that of love and community the Kelleher matchmakers felt it appropriate to reflect on the words of the late MLK and how his life’s message can inspire you on your journey of finding love and commitment.
