Forty percent of American singles go online to look for love, but Kelleher International knows that romance is all about people matching people, not computers matching people. A recent episode of Nightline gives an inside look at the way matches are arranged and the experience of that first blind date.
Check out the video below to see our interview with Nightline and watch a happy couple’s first date (note: pay close attention to the couples’ body language during their date and learn what it means here).
Marcus John is an International Sports Marketing representative that spends most of his days on the road working. His incredibly successful career and active lifestyle make it difficult for him to spend time finding someone to share his life with. This is where we come in.
One of the things we ask our clients to do is to write down the qualities they want in a partner – not just in a person that they would date. It is important to think of the kind of person you would like to spend the rest of your life with, rather than just casually date. Marcus tells us that his ideal partner has strong faith and an adventurous spirit – and that he has a certain affinity for women hailing from the Pacific Islands. John tells Nightline that he is excited to meet the woman that Kelleher International finds to pair him with. “It's probably the most important piece in your life ultimately, right? So, can you put a price on love?” He says, “Probably not.”
After an extensive search in our database of more than 30,000 singles that have all been screened exhaustively, we find a possible match for Marcus: a 34 year old woman from Los Angeles named Maria Keppes. Maria works for a nonprofit and seems like a great fit.
Marcus and Maria begin their blind date in a quiet suburb of San Francisco, and they seem to hit it off immediately. Unlike many first dates that can be filled with awkward silence and questions that seem fit for a job interview, the couple sets to chatting immediately. Coincidentally, Maria and Marcus are even wearing the same bracelet. In a recap of the date, the couple reported that they had a wonderful time together and they are currently planning on taking a surfing vacation next month. We wish Maria and Marcus the very best, however if by some chance their love was not meant to be, we will be hard at work finding other suitable matches.
