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. Should you reignite your love life by hiring a matchmaker? Read these 10 tips to find out!
The people you are meeting are not of the caliber you want to spend the rest of your life with
It can be tough to meet new people, and if you are looking for love in a bar or around your workplace, you may find that you are not connecting with the right kind of person to build a life with. You need someone who matches you perfectly, in mind, body and spirit – the random person you met at a dive bar probably is not going to fill that need. Matchmakers take the time to do background research on potential matches and see if they find someone that is worth your time.
You don’t have the time to go meet someone because your successful career is so demanding
You may attend social events all the time, but those are for work. When you work long hours and have career-related activities outside of the office, it can be difficult to work up the energy to do much more than rest, much less go out and seek a suitable partner. You may have plenty of time to invest in the right person, but not enough to go through the process of dating several people to find The One. A matchmaker completes that process for you and chooses suitable dates so that you spend your time more wisely.
You are tired of being deceived by online dating profiles
Have you ever met a person that you were matched with online, only to find that everything about their profile was a lie, or they were using a photo from ten years ago? A recent survey undertaken by the Pew Internet and American Life Project found that “half (54%) of online daters have felt that someone else seriously misrepresented themselves in their profile. And more seriously, 28% of online daters have been contacted by someone through an online dating site or app in a way that made them feel harassed or uncomfortable.” There is no way to falsify data when it comes to meeting a personal matchmaker.
You have a hard time breaking away from your “type”
If you keep dating the same type of person and things never work out, you may have an attraction to a certain type of person. Unfortunately, this is a cycle that is hard to break. That’s where an expert matchmaker comes in.
You are tired of “putting yourself out there”
You may have the time to date several prospective matches, but are simply tired of having to treat every social outing like a chance to “hunt for a mate.” Alternatively, you may just be tired of advertising yourself nonstop and facing rejection. Either way, a matchmaker’s job is to find a match based on their research on you, and then present you with people that may be compatible.
You don’t like blind dates
Blind dates are the worst! You don’t know anything other than the person’s screen name and the picture that they have used on their dating profile, accurate or not. When a matchmaker presents your match to you, you can get to know a little about them and arrange a date when you both have some knowledge of each other.
You feel like you aren’t getting anywhere with any of your prospective dates
It can be easy to become burned out on dating, especially if numerous relationships have failed before. A matchmaking service gives you the chance to meet the right people. Remember, quality is better than quantity.
You need a discreet and trustworthy match, rather than someone who is just after your looks, fortune and fame
If you are familiar with the term “gold-digger,” then you know what this reason refers to. For many successful singles, it can be difficult to tell whether someone is interested in the real you or merely in your success. A discreet matchmaker can tell the difference and won’t match you with someone who is only interested in your finances or position in society.
You are living in an unfamiliar location
It can be tough to meet people when you are new to the area, especially if you moved because of your career and now spend most of your time working. A matchmaker can become a trusted contact in the area, find you great local matches, and even recommend fantastic local spots for a romantic date.
Your happiness is the priority to you
Most people attribute their overall happiness in life to being in love, especially those who now have families built with their significant other. A popular saying is “No one on their deathbed ever regretted not spending more time at work.” This is especially true when it comes to love. Make love your priority and see the benefits you will reap!
