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.

It’s a phase that should be enjoyed to its fullest without expectation for any particular “expiration date” when you find true love and cast off the label. It’s more of a time when you focus on personal growth and prepare for the person you hope to be someday – with or without a significant other.

10-signs-for-a-matchmaker

For many singles, it is easy to get a date, but very difficult to find someone with whom you have chemistry AND long-term compatibility. Dating takes lots of time, especially when you are looking for something serious. Successful individuals that could “have” anyone in the world, such as celebrities, CEOs, professionals and entrepreneurs, may have other concerns beyond just the time and labor that goes into looking for love. For this reason, many people turn to the services of an elite matchmaker, such as Amber Kelleher-Andrews, or a boutique matchmaking firm, such as Kelleher International.

A skilled matchmaker is like a love recruiter; they go through the process of researching and vetting potential candidates to find someone who will be compatible for a lifetime, rather than just the short-term. Should you reignite your love life by hiring a matchmaker? Read these 10 tips to find out!
