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.

We’ve all given and received the sage advice, “let go.” Whether it’s a job, habit, idea, or relationship, it’s safe to say that guidance is easier to give than it is to receive. The idea of letting go is light and free and hopeful, but the act of actually doing it can be daunting and painful on a number of levels. Letting go is hard work which is why so many people prefer to stay stuck.

Kelleher International matchmaker, Doreen Justice is no stranger to hard work and letting go.

Love in the Golden Years

Posted by Kelleher International on Jun 2, 2017 7:59:13 AM

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.

Pro Matchmaking Tip_Kira (2).png 

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.

Pro Matchmaking Tip_Patty.png

 

Even for the most put together person killing it in business, finding footing in love can feel like navigating tre

acherous 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?

We are a family-owned, boutique matchmaking firm celebrating 30 years of successful matches. It all started with the knack of our founder Jill Kelleher for putting people together. Sprinkling in grit, charm, and tenacity, Jill created an exclusive niche in the love business for successful professionals that grew from San Francisco to international stature.

Passing the torch onto daughter Amber Kelleher-Andrews, today the Kelleher network of select members continues to expand, but so does the corporate mission. KI no longer exclusively unites people in love. Amber realized the chemistry that connects two people in romance could be the very same chemistry that connects two ambitious entrepreneurs around an idea or cause. Through philanthropic efforts and special events, Amber strategically unites people for the greater good.

“Hope and fear cannot occupy the same space. Invite one to stay.” -Maya Angelou

Joining a matchmaking firm requires some degree of vulnerability. After all, you’re stripping back the layers of yourself and sharing those intimate details and desires with a team of “strangers” who will help you find true love. We get it; it’s a tall order, but the payout is huge. If you’re flirting with the idea of being matched, consider the following advice from Kelleher International Executive Matchmaker, Nahla Grafer, to help you have fun and relax during the process.

Modern Matchmaking: The Client Connection

Posted by Kelleher International on Apr 28, 2017 7:00:00 AM

Pro Matchmaking Tip_Molly-1.png

There seems to be a misconception on the role of the modern matchmaker - the misinformed idea is that we only search on behalf of men with the focus being on lots and lots of dating. The truth is, there's a vast difference between a dating service and a matchmaking firm. Matchmakers are responsible for developing a bond with both male and female clients so as to peel back those complicated layers to discover what makes them tick and what they're truly looking for in the love department. A matchmaker armed with those details can be exceptionally useful.
