There seems to be a misconception on the role of the modern matchmaker - the misinformed idea is that we only search on behalf of men with the focus being on lots and lots of dating. The truth is, there's a vast difference between a dating service and a matchmaking firm. Matchmakers are responsible for developing a bond with both male and female clients so as to peel back those complicated layers to discover what makes them tick and what they're truly looking for in the love department. A matchmaker armed with those details can be exceptionally useful.

6 Tips to Build Trust Again After a Divorce

Learn to Trust.jpg

One of the biggest challenges individuals face after going through a divorce is rebuilding trust. If you had previous trust issues, going through a divorce can significantly increase those feeling and dramatically change how you view yourself and relationships in general.

Regardless of the reason for the split, divorce can set the foundation for mistrust in future relationships – even if the ability to trust was never an issue before. It’s easy to doubt yourself and your ability to trust others after a marriage ends badly, which will affect how you act in subsequent relationships. This doubt and mistrust can manifest itself in many different ways - from feeling your partner is dishonest or secretive, to questioning their promises and dependability.

After a split do you find yourself believing the worst about relationships and fearing that you can’t hold onto love no matter what you do? It’s time to take back your life and make a positive change by following these six tips to repair trust after a divorce.

What Is Your Intuition Telling You About Your Relationship?

Are you in love or lust?

Many studies show a brain in lust looks exactly like a brain on drugs. The powerful surge of hormones that comes from this form of infatuation can inadvertently cause you to project an idealized version of your partner onto them instead of accepting the real person, flaws and all. Though pure lust is based primarily on physical attraction and fantasy, it will more than likely dissipate once the “real person” surfaces. However, that doesn't mean lust cannot lead to love. Time is the ultimate judge of that. As the new wears off and two people begin to know each other more deeply, feelings of genuine love and adoration can bloom. Here are some tips from our Los Angeles matchmakers to help you differentiate lust from love and use your intuition to make better decisions regarding your relationship.

How Uncertainty Can Help You Find Happiness in Your Relationship

Posted by Kelleher International on Mar 3, 2017 10:59:36 AM

man and woman on beach.jpgAs much time as we spend contemplating things, you could say we spend most of our lives living in our own heads. Our relationship with self is the longest and most intimate of any we will ever have, and it’s the one we should always trust the most. That inner voice, sometimes referred to as our “larger self” helps us navigate through life and establish our values. Unfortunately, it can also cause quite a bit of over-thinking when it comes to love.

Complete certainty, when it comes to love, is impossible. Humans are crazy creatures, constantly making decisions, experiencing things, growing and evolving on a never ending loop. When two of these humans get together, they’re both on their own wheel of evolution attempting to move in sync with their partners. You can see how expecting certainty in that situation is quite impractical. So what does that mean for you? You have to embrace uncertainty. It’s scary, and sometimes painful, but more often than not, it’s exhilarating, life-affirming, and exactly where the magic happens.

Follow these tips from our matchmakers to banish some of the biggest bi-products of uncertainty and let your love shine!
