Planning a proposal is not a small task. The biggest dilemma is often the most important: the ring! This is one gift where the idiom “it’s the thought that counts” takes a backseat to whether the ring is the right size, style and stone. It takes some sleuthing to learn about your partner’s unique style, but our matchmakers have compiled a guide to help you pick the perfect engagement ring from the start so your engagement can be everything you – and your fiancée – hoped for.
Attraction is the biggest stepping stone in any relationship. The biggest house, newest car and most successful career are all great, but hold little bearing when it comes to whether your date will actually find you attractive. There are a few traits we’ve noticed all women seem to love in a man – and these traits are surprisingly difficult to cultivate. The few men who do possess these qualities find their dating pools are much larger, which ultimately leads to more control over their own dating lives and an easier time finding the woman they have dreamed of. Want to become irresistible? Here are our recommendations:
Relationships are a science -- or, at least, understanding what makes them work is a science. It turns out that there are many independent variables that all factor into whether or not a relationship is a success or a failure. One of those variables is self-care. A new study published in the Journal of Family Psychology shows that higher levels of self-care lead to greater levels of satisfaction in a relationship. We know how difficult it can be to make time for yourself -- after all, many of our clients work hard and can never seem to find time to unwind. But neglecting that precious time can seriously hurt your relationships. That's why we want to stress the importance of being kind to yourself and taking some “me time” at least once a month. The happiness of your relationship could depend on it. Here’s what we recommend:

New York City is one of the most romantic destinations in the U.S. It’s no wonder Hollywood selected it as the backdrop for famous movies such as Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961) or Woody Allen’s popular rom-com, Manhattan (1979). The Big Apple is the city of romance! Take advantage of it with these date ideas from our matchmakers that will show you and your date the best parts of NYC.
Everyone understands the feeling of another person just not “getting it.” You might reside in the same city and speak the same language, but the meaning behind your words can often get lost in the emotion behind them. The key to communication is to get on the other person’s level and communicate in a way that matters to them.
When it comes to love, we all have examples that we look up to. Whether you admire your parents or a celebrity couple that seems to have it all, it helps to have a clear cut example of a happy relationship. We look up to power couples like Diane von Fürstenberg and Barry Diller, Mark Zuckerberg and Priscilla Chan, or basically anyone who attends the Allen & Company “summer camp for billionaires.” These couples all have their own successful careers, but still find time to maintain enviable marriages. Here’s what power couples do differently – and how you can steal their methods to create your own successful relationship.
Everyone has been hurt at some point. Lost love can leave lasting marks on the heart, which makes it difficult to move on and form new relationships in the future. Many clients turn to Kelleher International’s matchmaking services because they don’t want to experience more heartbreak. They know we enforce a detailed screening process to get only the best matches – and the best chance at love. Lasting relationships rely on a number of factors, but one of the most important elements we evaluate is each client’s openness to love. Here is just one way to determine your relationship style and its impact on future romance:
Social 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. The key to social media is to use it sparingly. It’s fine to comment on photos and even share the occasional update about your own life, but excessive updates can actually be damaging to your life – and your relationship. Here are our matchmakers’ top reasons to keep your relationship off social media.
Our 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.
