Dating Differently

If you ask anyone who's actively dating they’ll tell you it’s akin to having a second job. Dating in earnest takes patience, presence and a healthy dose of persistence. Consistently putting yourself out there and going on dates can devour your time and energy, so it’s important to have fun and enjoy the experience.

Date night with dinner and a movie might sound like a dream to a married couple with children. To the single gal who probably had dinner and a movie twice last week, it seems like more of the same - boring and predictable.

Since summertime is the perfect time to mix things up and try something new the matchmaking mavens at Kelleher International offer you some fun and playful dating ideas to shake up the status quo.

We’ve all given and received the sage advice, “let go.” Whether it’s a job, habit, idea, or relationship, it’s safe to say that guidance is easier to give than it is to receive. The idea of letting go is light and free and hopeful, but the act of actually doing it can be daunting and painful on a number of levels. Letting go is hard work which is why so many people prefer to stay stuck.

Kelleher International matchmaker, Doreen Justice is no stranger to hard work and letting go.

From Success to Significance

Posted by Kelleher International on Jun 11, 2017 3:14:09 PM

Success is a relative term. It’s deeply personal and drives the path of our lives. No matter what success looks like to you, there’s a measuring stick by which you see yourself and the contents of your life. Most of us spend our lives striving for success, but what happens when you find it?

Love in the Golden Years

Posted by Kelleher International on Jun 2, 2017 7:59:13 AM

Finding real love and connection at any age isn’t easy, but as the years turn to gold finding a partner can become more difficult. With the aging baby boomer population, it is expected that by 2050, one in five people will be over the age of 60, which would equate to approximately 2 billion seniors around the world. Yet, the idea of dating portrayed in the media offers us images of youth and superficial beauty. Such ideas can be powerful, sucking the hope of actually finding love in the golden years out of many amazing (and eligible) men and women.

Pro Matchmaking Tip_Kira (2).png 

Let’s be honest. None of us know how the story ends, yet we spend so much of our lives speculating and trying to control the path. Inevitably we feel quite certain we indeed know “exactly how this is going to go.” It’s part of the human condition.

And there’s no area of life where we do this more than in romantic love.

Even for the most put together person killing it in business, finding footing in love can feel like navigating treacherous terrain. Some days you feel powerful and hopeful and ready to embrace the world. You put yourself out there, smile, engage, and stay open to the possibilities. Some days you wake up, look over at the pillow next to you with a tender ache to have a soulful connection with someone and then spend the rest of the day fighting the Eeyore effect. The uncertainty can be overwhelming. We get it.

So, what gives? You might be wondering.
