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.
March 20th was the first day of spring. This is not just a season for warmer weather or even for falling in love – spring is a season for starting over.

What would you like to do more over the next year? Winter is over and hard times are in the past. Embrace the sunshine and move forward with the best matchmaking services around!

March Madness has begun and the Kelleher International team is ready! We may not have the best brackets around, but our matchmaking services are still unparalleled – and we’re here to give you some good news about your sports obsession. Contrary to popular belief and the myth of the “sports widow,” watching sports with your significant other can actually be good for your relationship!
The biggest challenge we face as matchmakers is what to do when a couple is so clearly meant to be together, but they live hundreds (or thousands) of miles apart. Generally our clients have already specified whether they would like to date local or consider international options as well, but you really can’t fight love. Sometimes long distance relationships are just meant to be.

Everyone loves the Oscars. Long, flowing gowns, couples walking the red carpet hand in hand, the excitement of guessing who will win awards… There may be a different reason to pay attention to the Oscars: how different couples interact at the Oscars could actually indicate the status of their current romantic relationship. Recent studies show that while breakup rates in Hollywood are still abnormally high, Oscar winners who thanked their partners in their acceptance speeches were far more likely to stay together than those who did not.
Our clients fit a very specific profile. We hear from successful single professionals on a regular basis and they all have the same complaint: “it’s not that I can’t get a date – I’m just too busy to seek them out.”
Topics: Workplace Romance
