A life well-lived can become a story for the ages inspiring others to take leaps of faith and live their best life. From business to adventure and love, when in doubt opening yourself up to possibilities is always the right move.
Women agree they want to fall for Mr. Nice Guy, but they may be less vocal about the reasons they so often fall for the quintessential bad boy instead. We all know choosing the brooding bachelor doesn’t typically lead to a successful relationship. Fortunately, with life experience and relationship maturity, women grow out of the desire to be with this guy. Once women evolve, they yearn for someone trustworthy and confident who is genuinely interested in getting to know them.
The Kelleher International matchmakers weigh in with some tips from the bad boy playbook, so you nice guys can get the girl.
Open hearts and open minds are the holy grail of matchmaking. Of course, fostering those two qualities takes time and mindful effort. But together, the two can promote blissful connections and make our job as matchmakers fruitful and rewarding.
Finding real love and connection at any age isn’t easy, but as the years turn to gold finding a partner can become more difficult. With the aging baby boomer population, it is expected that by 2050, one in five people will be over the age of 60, which would equate to approximately 2 billion seniors around the world. Yet, the idea of dating portrayed in the media offers us images of youth and superficial beauty. Such ideas can be powerful, sucking the hope of actually finding love in the golden years out of many amazing (and eligible) men and women.
Cathy Lewis, California matchmaker extraordinaire for Kelleher International shared her insight on over-60 dating as it happens in real life.
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.
Single life is not the life sentence it’s made out to be. Our matchmakers encourage clients to look at their single status as a transitional period in life. 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.
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.
