5 Benefits of Keeping Your Relationship Off Social Media

Posted by Kelleher International on Jul 8, 2016 9:08:05 AM

shutterstock_390168376.jpgSocial media sharing always seems like a good idea at first. After all, it’s a way to catch up with old friends and share what’s happening in your lives.

Reality TV: Your Relationship’s Public Enemy Number One

Posted by Kelleher International on Jul 1, 2016 8:38:02 AM

shutterstock_230813623.jpgOur matchmakers are interested in more than just locating a quick fix for your relationship woes; our primary focus is on the quality of your relationships. One of the most popular questions we get from new members is how many dates they should plan to get while utilizing Kelleher International’s services. Our answer, while slightly unsatisfying, is the most ethical response we can provide: you will only get dates if we find compatible matches who meet your specifications. Our goal is not to set you up with dozens of random singles who happen to be searching for someone at the same time. Our process is much more detailed and involves a rigorous background check, interviews and good old fashioned patience while we search for exactly the right person for you. Our detailed process is what sets Kelleher International apart from other generic dating services that claim to have dozens of matches for you right from the start.

Posted by Kelleher International on Jun 10, 2016 8:30:08 AM

Mum’s the Word: Keeping Your Personal Life Private

Posted by Kelleher International on Jun 3, 2016 8:19:55 AM

Everett Collection / Shutterstock.comEveryone has an opinion about something. Your mother has thoughts on your clothing choices, your siblings have ideas about where you should live, and your best friend wants to weigh in on your dates – but what happens when thousands of people also want to voice their opinions on your life? Nothing good, that’s for sure. Relationships are like fire: they need just a little bit of oxygen to ignite, but too much at once will extinguish the flame before it’s ever started to burn. Guarding your privacy is not just an issue of personal preference – it’s a matter of saving your relationship before overexposure extinguishes the whole thing. Our matchmaking services offer discrete dating, but there are a few additional ways to keep your personal life private:

shutterstock_315931406.jpgEveryone knows at least one serial dater in their lives – if you aren’t one yourself. Our matchmakers have seen it all: from people who never date the same person for more than a few weeks to others who have a new date every night. Serial daters are experts at starting relationships, but soon become dissatisfied and end each relationship quickly before moving on to the next one. New research shows this behavior might not be bad – it’s just a symptom of living in a big city and being left to find dates on your own without any help.

shutterstock_253638310.jpgThere are a lot of reasons people fall in love during the summer. Sun-kissed skin, poolside margaritas and warm vacation weather make it easy to relax, which also means you are more open to love. The endless date possibilities certainly don’t hurt, either: the pool, the beach, a picnic at the park… anything outside is fair game come summertime.
