Love and Money

When you don’t have it, you’ll work hard to get it.

And when you get it, you’ll fight to keep it.

You can substitute love or money as the subject of that thought. That's a big reason finances can be a touchy subject in any relationship, especially romantic ones. Broaching the subject of a prenuptial agreement should be well-thought out and done with care. The Kelleher International matchmaking team shares their insight and experience to help you do just that.

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.

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.
