Love and Money

Posted by Kelleher International on May 8, 2018 10:57:07 AM

When you don’t have it, you’ll work hard to get it.

And when you get it, you’ll fight to keep it.

You can substitute love or money as the subject of that thought. That's a big reason finances can be a touchy subject in any relationship, especially romantic ones. Broaching the subject of a prenuptial agreement should be well-thought out and done with care. The Kelleher International matchmaking team shares their insight and experience to help you do just that.

Navigating Difficult Conversations

Posted by Kelleher International on May 1, 2018 10:30:48 AM

We live in a time where our digital connection is 24/7, yet feelings of aloneness run rampant. The curious thing about aloneness is that we all simultaneously feel it and contribute to it. Standing someone up, ghosting, and icing perpetuate a dismissive dating and social culture where it’s the norm to bail before the big talk.

Our Kelleher Matchmaking clients are fortunate to have a personal matchmaker to mediate a delicate conversation for them after a first or second date. However, once a real connection is established, we do encourage clients to manage the difficult discussions on their own. Here are a few insights to set you up for success.

Fight with Love

Posted by Kelleher International on Apr 17, 2018 11:00:22 AM

 

As matchmakers in today’s political climate, we often have clients with hard and fast rules regarding the political affiliation of their potential dates. Most often we respect that rule, but sometimes a connection seems too good to pass up, and we negotiate with both parties on giving each other a chance. Sometimes we’re wrong, but often we’re right.

So what happens in relationships when fights and disagreements over things outside of the relationship come up as they inevitably will? How do you speak your mind while respecting both your partner and relationship? Do you think it’s possible to agree to disagree?

Martin Luther King, Jr. grew to become one of the greatest social activists the world has ever known. At age 35 he became the youngest person (at that time) to win the Nobel Peace Prize. As we wrap this week celebrating social activists and other Nobel Peace Prize winners whose missions surround that of love and community the Kelleher matchmakers felt it appropriate to reflect on the words of the late MLK and how his life’s message can inspire you on your journey of finding love and commitment.
