10 Attitudes That Kill Your Chances of Finding Love

Posted by Kelleher International on Jan 6, 2017 8:08:32 AM

shutterstock_363738458.jpgFinding love is about more than simply wanting a relationship to cure loneliness; it’s about being emotionally ready to look out for someone else’s well-being in addition to balancing your own life. Happy couples don’t stay together by accident. A long-term relationship is the result of hard work and years of continuous self-improvement. The work never ends, but the effort is worth it for couples who really love each other. The common misconception is that the hard work begins only after you have found someone of interest. Our matchmakers have identified 10 attitudes you must fix before even meeting someone you want to date.

How to Handle Gift-Giving at Different Stages of Your Relationship

Posted by Kelleher International on Dec 23, 2016 7:30:00 AM

shutterstock_530310358.jpgOne of our clients recently wrote to our matchmaking agency in a complete panic: he had been on two dates with the woman of his dreams. She was smart, shared his passion for business and the two of them even supported the same charities. They had been at the same fundraiser the year prior and didn’t even realize it! The problem came when his date mentioned that her birthday was coming up – that weekend. Our client wanted to know whether it was appropriate to get his date a gift this early in the relationship and, if so, how to get her something meaningful without scaring her away.

The Secret to a Happy Relationship

Posted by Kelleher International on May 27, 2016 9:02:59 AM

shutterstock_315931406.jpgEveryone knows at least one serial dater in their lives – if you aren’t one yourself. Our matchmakers have seen it all: from people who never date the same person for more than a few weeks to others who have a new date every night. Serial daters are experts at starting relationships, but soon become dissatisfied and end each relationship quickly before moving on to the next one. New research shows this behavior might not be bad – it’s just a symptom of living in a big city and being left to find dates on your own without any help.

There is nothing worse in the dating world than finding the perfect person only to discover he or she just ended a serious relationship and is not quite ready to move on. The conversation might be wonderful, they might be extremely talented, and your future goals might align perfectly – but if your date is still pining over “happier times” when the so-called “love of their life” was still around, the relationship might still be doomed to failure before it’s even begun. The experts at Kelleher International screen prospective matches carefully not only for compatibility, but also for mental and emotional availability. There is no way to guarantee a date is open to a new relationship, but a professional matchmaking service can certainly tip the odds in your favor.

5 Emotional Stages of a New Relationship

Posted by Kelleher International on Jun 5, 2015 8:51:52 AM

shutterstock_251813212Wouldn’t it be great to have a road map to love? Well, thanks to modern psychology, there sort of is. Love is a confusing and often dizzying journey, but many of the relationship stages people experience are based on hormones and basic body chemistry. While you’re the one logically deciding “yay or nay,” your body is busy releasing oxytocin, vasopressin, and dopamine to keep you craving more even after you’ve been with someone for many years. Kelleher International explains the five stages of new love – and how to navigate them for a strong, successful relationship.

You don’t have to take part in a cheesy corporate retreat to build teamwork in your relationship. Many couples find working toward the same goals, sharing some common interests, and simply keeping the best interest of their partner in mind is enough to build trust and develop a sense of intimacy, but it takes time to build that kind of rapport with another person. No one comes pre-packaged as a dating expert with all the knowledge required to “make it work.” The simple fact is: people in long-term relationships have a different mindset than people who have been single for long periods of time. The elite matchmakers at Kelleher International have some great tips to transition your thoughts from “me” to “we” and build a solid foundation for your future together.
