Let's Be Candid

Posted by Kelleher International on Apr 24, 2018 9:57:45 AM

As matchmakers, we fill our Mondays with friendly chats about your weekend activities and how your date (or dates) went. These post-date follow-up calls are a critical component of finding your match. Part of the art of matchmaking is following a hunch based on what we know about a person or perhaps something we heard them say in passing. It’s reading between the lines and following our gut instinct. So to successfully find your match, our edge comes from you providing thoughtful feedback throughout the process.

Fight with Love

Posted by Kelleher International on Apr 17, 2018 11:00:22 AM

 

As matchmakers in today’s political climate, we often have clients with hard and fast rules regarding the political affiliation of their potential dates. Most often we respect that rule, but sometimes a connection seems too good to pass up, and we negotiate with both parties on giving each other a chance. Sometimes we’re wrong, but often we’re right.

So what happens in relationships when fights and disagreements over things outside of the relationship come up as they inevitably will? How do you speak your mind while respecting both your partner and relationship? Do you think it’s possible to agree to disagree?

It's a Polo Social

Posted by Kelleher International on Apr 10, 2018 10:40:13 AM

Join Kelleher International at the Las Vegas Polo Classic this weekend. It'll be history in the making as the first outdoor grass polo games take on Sin City! The sixteen polo players and one hundred horses will provide edge of your seat excitement. An expected one thousand plus attendees will be on-hand for a properly pampered experience of two days of polo, fashion, gourmet food and drink.

The festivities will kick off at noon on April 14th with a Battle of the Sexes polo match-up. The accomplished polo player, film and television star Sonia Couling will team up with three other female polo players in the California Polo Club shirts to take on the male polo team of Luxury Las Vegas. At 2:15p guests will be treated to a high goal polo game. If you've never experienced the thrill of watching talented players and horses explode down the field at speeds of 35 to 40 mph, it is incredible.

Kelleher Matchmaking's very own Courtney Barber will grace the polo fields all afternoon, riding in a 2018 Range Rover, to announce the upcoming chukkers of the Las Vegas Polo Classic.

When Looks Matter

Posted by Kelleher International on Apr 5, 2018 11:11:18 AM

One of the first life-changing things we learn in young adulthood is the importance of the first impression. No matter if it’s in friendship, teams, work, or love how you are perceived in that first interaction sticks. It is a great responsibility of ours to show up in our best light as our best selves so that we might pave a smoother path for our happiness and overall success.

As Kelleher International matchmakers, we facilitate introductions every day. We’ve got our finger on the pulse of what our clients are looking for in a partner and hand-select singles with the potential to be their match. And while the superficial stuff may not matter to someone down the road, in the beginning - when you’re making that first impression - it undeniably does.

Look Before You Leap

Posted by Kelleher International on Mar 23, 2018 10:05:16 AM

Sometimes as matchmakers we get emotionally charged inquiries around the general topic of taking things to the next level after agreeing to the terms of casual dating. It’s a topic that will earn an eye roll from anyone eavesdropping on our conversation unless they are in the throes of navigating new love in the modern dating culture. It seems so easy when you're not the one feeling the roller coaster of emotions - hope and fear, confidence and insecurity, complete smite and skepticism.

What is the right move if you’re casually dating and catch feelings? How do you navigate that next move gracefully and with intention? Our Kelleher International matchmaking team is here to help.

Matchmaking Beyond Love

Posted by Kelleher International on Mar 16, 2018 9:13:46 AM

Matchmaking is an interesting and often misunderstood calling - so misunderstood in fact that the typical question is, “Why would I hire a matchmaker with so many dating websites and apps at my fingertips?”

We’re glad you asked.

Navigating Non-Exclusive Waters

Posted by Kelleher International on Mar 2, 2018 9:55:11 AM


Non-Exclusive dating isn’t a new concept for men who’ve long been playing the field. But with today’s swipe culture, non-exclusive dating is the new norm for the majority of single adults in the dating pool. Often a casual, non-exclusive relationship is the best option for someone working on themselves or making big moves in their career or figuring out the qualities they want in a partner. It can be an ideal way for you to slow down the pace of courtship and simultaneously learn the nuances of your dynamic with various potential love interests.
