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.

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.

Winter Warm-Up

Posted by Kelleher International on Feb 2, 2018 12:51:00 PM

It’s the time of year when many singles find themselves in recovery mode. The holiday parties and New Year festivities are a distant memory, and the resolutions made become more like suggestions. It’s tough being a busy professional and single socialite full-time. You’re tired, and the winter blues are setting in.

With short days and long evenings, it's easy to forego the social invites and cozy up with your dog and a bottle of wine instead. It would be so easy to take a social hibernation until spring, but the Kelleher matchmakers are sharing why you should stay active in your pursuit of romance and finding your perfect match.

Matchmaker's Perspective: The Journey

Posted by Kelleher International on May 25, 2017 10:00:00 AM

 

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.

Posted by Kelleher International on May 19, 2017 4:00:00 AM

 

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.

What can you do to set yourself up for success in love and matchmaking?
