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.

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.

What Is Your Intuition Telling You About Your Relationship?

Posted by Kelleher International on Mar 24, 2017 9:45:27 AM

Are you in love or lust?

Many studies show a brain in lust looks exactly like a brain on drugs. The powerful surge of hormones that comes from this form of infatuation can inadvertently cause you to project an idealized version of your partner onto them instead of accepting the real person, flaws and all. Though pure lust is based primarily on physical attraction and fantasy, it will more than likely dissipate once the “real person” surfaces. However, that doesn't mean lust cannot lead to love. Time is the ultimate judge of that. As the new wears off and two people begin to know each other more deeply, feelings of genuine love and adoration can bloom. Here are some tips from our Los Angeles matchmakers to help you differentiate lust from love and use your intuition to make better decisions regarding your relationship.

What Steve Jobs Can Teach You About Relationships

Posted by Kelleher International on Nov 13, 2015 7:27:51 AM

“I’m convinced that about half of what separated the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”

-Steve Jobs

 

The Apple Empire dominates the tech world even today, so one can’t help but wonder if Steve Jobs was right about what makes an entrepreneur successful. But what if this same concept was applied to relationships? Our matchmakers believe perseverance is part of what sets successful relationships apart from failed ones. From the time spent looking for that date to the actual hurdles that come between even the closest of partners, cool heads and a lot of patience are necessary to persevere as a couple. Replace the word “entrepreneurs” with the word “relationships,” and you can see how Jobs’ wisdom can be applied in your own life. So, what other love lessons can you learn from the tech visionary?
