We’ve all felt the rush of heat swallow us as we hear something that ignites our defenses. When a personal action, decision, or characteristic comes into question, it’s natural to want to run to your defense with a quick rebuttal and self-assured explanation, but there’s a better way. Receiving constructive criticism is art in mindfulness, and the Kelleher International matchmaking mavens explain why it’s so important to master when you’re looking for love.
When it comes to finding love we are all at the center of our own universe. And when we’re hyper-focused on our individual needs and desires, sometimes we can’t see the forest for the trees. Matchmakers can be just the person we need to help us get out of our own way on our path to finding the one.
Being a good matchmaker requires a unique blend of listening, intuition, empathy, humor, and grit. At Kelleher International, we seek team members who embody those qualities as well as a spirit of collaboration and family. Nancy Shea is one of the newest Kelleher matchmakers who embodies those qualities.
When it comes to honest advice about marriage, there is no one more qualified to give advice than actual married couples. Divorce lawyers and marriage therapists can offer intellectual opinions, but relationships really have to be experienced to truly understand them. Part three of this three-part series on relationship advice seeks to offer a real-world perspective for making relationships work even when high-powered careers get in the way.
Falling in love is a beautiful thing, but staying in love can be something else altogether. Many couples find they are good at starting relationships, but the magic fizzles once they start going steady or finally “put a ring on it.” The first segment of this three-part series exploring love and keeping the magic alive discussed relationship advice from divorce lawyers. This week we will explore advice from marriage counselors who have seen countless couples in conflict seek ways to rekindle the romance they once had.
Divorce lawyers have seen it all: the good, the bad and the ugly. Not every divorce is a War of the Roses, but they aren’t spontaneous occurrences, either. Usually the events leading up to a divorce can be felt on both sides of a relationship long before the D-word is mentioned. Our matchmakers from NYC to San Francisco have located some of the best relationship advice – from divorce lawyers! Part one of a three-part series about relationship tips from the experts is bound to help save your relationship from disaster.
The D-word has ruined more lives than can be imagined; legal fees, emotional distress, and the uncertainty of where life goes next can all take a toll on divorcees. Celebrity is a unique dating obstacle, which is reflected in higher divorce rates and increased relationship satisfaction overall. Fortunately, divorce is not the end of the road. Many famous people find love after divorce and are now living their happily-ever-after, albeit a little later than planned.
Mary-Kate Olsen married beau Olivier Sarkozy in a private ceremony over Thanksgiving weekend. While Olsen and Sarkozy might seem an unlikely pair, their relationship makes a great deal of sense: Olsen is a self-starter running her own successful design business and Sarkozy is a banker of French origin who resides in the United States. Sarkozy, brother to France’s former President, Nicolas Sarkozy, is used to paparazzi and the rigors of fame that follow Olsen. Sarkozy and Olsen’s frequent trips to France, the world’s capital of fashion, are no doubt convenient for her design career. The pair have been dating for about three years; if you ask us, this wedding is long overdue! The key here is that it is possible to juggle fame, success, and a happy relationship all at the same time. Olsen conducts her life the same way she conducts her business: intelligently! Here’s what Mary-Kate Olsen can teach you about relationships:
