Happy August to all of our many couples, clients, and friends. The end of summer resurrects what we “didn’t do” over the summer that we wanted to do…almost like New Years Resolutions. Did you find summer love post pandemic? Did you make the positive social changes you desired? Halloween, Thanksgiving, and the BIG holidays are coming filled with dinner parties and events through the end of 2021! Hope and love are right in front of you, so allow me to simplify our process “from single to taken” today. Time to get inspired and become part of a pair (again). Follow these simple steps and stay ahead of the curve! Fun Fact: People that join in the Summer are twice as likely to find their match by the holidays.
Summers in Florida are busier than ever. The flight to Florida and the real estate boom has brought many NEW TO THE AREA SINGLES to our office too (approximately 40% increase in new to area clientele since the pandemic onset)! There are more people in Florida this summer compared to any other high winter season. Our summer love stats on connections that stick are in full bloom. With that, one of the most common questions asked is: How does your club work? Answer: It is easier than you think.
Step 1: Admit you are READY to find love and/or companionship. Romance is ageless. Our club helps men and women from young professionals well into the happy eighties.
Step 2: Identify WHY you want to fall in love and/or find companionship. Some people just want to have someone to go out to dinner with, while others want to get married and have children. Others realize life is passing them by and they know they need to do something before it’s too late. Whatever your “why” is–recognize it, own it, and act on it. He who hesitates is lost.
Step 3: Just Do It. Move forward today. What’s holding you back? Nerves? Fear? Are you a skeptic? Whatever your issue is–let it go–we’ve got you covered. No one ever progressed in life being fearful. Stick to the plan. Don’t deviate from these steps. (Oh yes, and of course, all inquiries to our private practice are confidential. Your photos don’t have to be public–like the ones you see in online dating to lure you in.
Step 4: Meet THE Florida Matchmaker with your scheduled appointment. Go through the enlightening screening process that I developed over my 31 years in the love biz, and if we like you and you like us, simply join the club. We call this “Phase One–The Enrollment Phase” which occurs in-person in our well established office. People cannot join this club over the phone or online. Amen!
Step 5: Return for your photo shoot and proceed with a collaborative biography creation, also referred to as “Phase Two–Ready. Set. Go.” Then, let the fun and the matchmaking begin! Report back to us on your time and let us know if you want to continue dating the same person or keep going! We play “wing girl” for you in essence. Everything can be done over the phone, in person, or through email/mail after your RD bio is complete. It’s your preference. This process facilitates the get to know you curve of typical dating by speeding up your comfort level with your new person. We just had another couple get engaged this month after only TWO MONTHS of dating!
Step 6: Trust your matchmakers. We are THE experts. Let us take the lead and shed light on things that may be holding you back romantically. Other times, we are just working to get closer to the right match by building a good rapport with you. Engage us and we will get you engaged too.
Step 7: Collaborate with us! Call/text/email and share your feedback with us. Is he or she into you? We shall assist just like a friend would in this matter. NO MORE GUESSING GAMES. Some have success on the first date and some on the tenth date–but no date will be a debacle (like online dating) because we know everyone and have validated them!
Step 8: Know thyself and be accountable. If you are only after “10s” in the club and you are a “6” be prepared for some letdowns. Ask us what you can do to get that guy or girl. We will tell you honestly and advise you. Remember we are “cupids” and not “unicorns”…we have magic and love in us, but we can’t do the job alone. We love working with our clients and as a result, they love us back!
Step 9: It worked! Welcome to “Phase Three–You are an #RDCouple!”…it is time to put your membership on HOLD. Why? Because you followed these steps. It’s science. We knew you would too! That’s why we signed you up. We try to avoid enrolling non-compliant/difficult people as a rule. We are saving you–and ourselves–a problem by being selective for the greater good. Lucky you!
Step 10: Share and tell all of your friends about the love you have found and how you found it. This will bring more love into your life. Pass it on, in other words. Whether you are single, divorced or widowed, we can help. Thank you to our many clients who have been talking us up out there and spreading the word! The more the merrier. Love will always win. Our word of mouth referrals have soared since the pandemic. We thank you all for being part of the love movement! Love really does win, right folks?
Congratulations on completing the cycle. I can’t wait to hear your story too–it is that easy! The love in us honors the love in you today and every day. Hope to see you soon in our office for the end of summer specials offered only ONCE per year (do mention this when you book your appointment! There is time to nail that summer love goal you desire! In one second your life could change. Always be open and stay that way.
