Everyone 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.
There 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. Somehow, it’s just easier to fall for someone in the summer.
How safe is your dating strategy? Last week The Washington Post reported on a story of a man in Silver Spring, MD who scammed women out of more than $600,000 in a series of what officers described as “internet romance schemes.” Evans Appiah, only 27-years-old, was convicted of wire and mail fraud, conspiracy and aggravated identity theft in a federal court of law. Appiah faces up to 20 years in prison on some of the charges, although his sentencing is not scheduled until August.

CEOs, politicians, celebrities, and sports stars all have one thing in common: busy work schedules. These people are generally very attractive, successful singles with all the means to achieve a happy relationship, but no time to pursue “the one” themselves. As a result of this, high-powered couples often have to do different things to make a relationship work. In our experience, the high profile lifestyle requires travel but we cover all the bases matching from NYC to L.A., London and Vancouver.
Online daters beware: more options in the dating pool is not always better. While dating sites continue to boast unrealistic percentages of “success,” recent studies suggest the long-term effects of meeting online are actually detrimental to relationships.
Prince William and Kate Middleton recently visited India’s “monument of love,” the infamous Taj Mahal. The couple took a private tour of the sprawling, ivory-white marble mausoleum, which was originally built as a testament to the emperor’s favorite wife.
Matchmaking services with Kelleher International are more than just dates: we look at each individual client’s profile to learn more about you and what matters most to your relationships. Our services are highly customized and personalized – no two matches are alike.
There are a lot of things you can do to improve your chances of getting a second date. A new haircut, a spritz of fragrance, or even a stylish new outfit can all help attract your date’s attention. Our matchmakers always recommend wearing something that makes you feel good about yourself because that will also help you feel more comfortable and confident on the date. In the end, however, scientists say attraction is based on something more than just your looks: body language.

Have you ever seen a couple walking down the street and thought they looked alike? Maybe you’ve spoken to a particularly well-matched couple at a party and noticed they gave the same answers to questions or even finished each other’s sentences. This is not a coincidence: it’s science! Researchers Angela Bahns (Wellesley College) and Chris Crandall (University of Kansas) co-authored a study titled, “Similarity in Relationships as Niche Construction,” which was published in the current issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. What they found reinforces something our matchmakers have known since the inception of Kelleher International: people do not necessarily change each other over time. Instead, people look for someone who is already similar to them.
