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.

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.

The Scientific Reason Why You & Your Partner are So Similar

Posted by Kelleher International on Apr 1, 2016 8:21:38 AM

shutterstock_324451142.jpgHave you ever seen a couple walking down the street and thought they looked alike? Maybe you’ve spoken to a particularly well-matched couple at a party and noticed they gave the same answers to questions or even finished each other’s sentences.

Researchers Angela Bahns (Wellesley College) and Chris Crandall (University of Kansas) co-authored a study titled, “Similarity in Relationships as Niche Construction,” which was published in the current issue of the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology. What they found reinforces something our matchmakers have known since the inception of Kelleher International: people do not necessarily change each other over time.

Skip the Rom-Coms this Valentine’s Day!

Posted by Kelleher International on Feb 5, 2016 7:17:14 AM

shutterstock_250239232-1.jpgWhen most people think of the stereotypical date night movie, they probably imagine romantic comedies. Hunky heartthrobs, striking starlets and contrived dialogue fill the course of a very painful 90 minutes while couples sit in the movie theater’s glow.
