There is nothing worse in the dating world than finding the perfect person only to discover he or she just ended a serious relationship and is not quite ready to move on. The conversation might be wonderful, they might be extremely talented, and your future goals might align perfectly – but if your date is still pining over “happier times” when the so-called “love of their life” was still around, the relationship might still be doomed to failure before it’s even begun. The experts at Kelleher International screen prospective matches carefully not only for compatibility, but also for mental and emotional availability. There is no way to guarantee a date is open to a new relationship, but a professional matchmaking service can certainly tip the odds in your favor.

Posted by Kelleher International on Jun 12, 2015 10:45:51 AM

shutterstock_272821442First dates are the time to put your best foot forward; this is when all the manners mom taught you resurface.
