Dating Jitters

No matter how old you are, first date jitters never really go away. For most of us, we’re able to shake off the nervousness and find our social groove. However, some people have trouble overcoming those jitters during the date and rarely get a shot at date number two which means they perpetually find themselves on first dates in an uncomfortable cycle of dating insecurity.

Summer Love

Heat of the Moment

Posted by Kelleher International on Jun 12, 2018 9:08:02 AM

In both matchmaking and online dating singles go out with virtual strangers. At Kelleher Matchmaking we vet our clients which adds a level of confidence, but often we hear stories of someone coming on too strong or a woman feeling uncomfortable with sexual advances. The #MeToo Movement makes men and women equally leery of dating these days.

There are always three sides to every story, and as matchmakers, we hear both the man and woman's sides and then piece together the truth from there. This week we’re sharing insight and tips for managing your setting and situation on a date and the importance of not putting yourself in compromising positions. It's a delicate topic, but an important reminder. Although a lot of this information will seem logical, it’s about both men and women being present and conscious of the situation, the optics, and potential issues that might arise.

We’ve all felt the rush of heat swallow us as we hear something that ignites our defenses.

Receiving constructive criticism is art in mindfulness, and the Kelleher International matchmaking mavens explain why it’s so important to master when you’re looking for love.

Age-Old Stigma

Posted by Kelleher International on May 22, 2018 11:44:41 AM

One of the most significant challenges we face in matchmaking is the rigid obsession with age. So many excellent matches never see the light of day because of age stigma. In a time where "sixty is the new forty" and most singles are taking great care of themselves, the Kelleher International matchmaking mavens challenge you to let go of the number in your head and date freely. Here are a few reasons to expand your mind and subsequently your dating pool.

KI Matchmaker Spotlight

Posted by Kelleher International on May 15, 2018 8:52:25 AM

When it comes to finding love we are all at the center of our own universe. And when we’re hyper-focused on our individual needs and desires, sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees. Matchmakers can be just the person we need to help us get out of our own way on our path to finding the one.

Being a good matchmaker requires a unique blend of listening, intuition, empathy, humor, and grit. At Kelleher International, we seek team members who embody those qualities as well as a spirit of collaboration and family. Nancy Shea is one of the newest Kelleher matchmakers who embodies those qualities.

Love and Money

Posted by Kelleher International on May 8, 2018 10:57:07 AM

When you don’t have it, you’ll work hard to get it.

And when you get it, you’ll fight to keep it.

You can substitute love or money as the subject of that thought. That's a big reason finances can be a touchy subject in any relationship, especially romantic ones. Broaching the subject of a prenuptial agreement should be well-thought out and done with care. The Kelleher International matchmaking team shares their insight and experience to help you do just that.
