Happy New Year to my loyal readers, couples and soon-to-be couples! I am over the moon about the last half of 2021. The year ended on a VERY high note for my clients, team, and me. A picture tells 1000 words and I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am to be celebrating my 31st year in the love business. I am so happy with the new direction my firm is taking. I’m so grateful to the many people who rallied around me over the last couple of years and the decades before that too.
The Pandemic Era did a number on all of us in more ways than one. I’m not going to get political but what the heck just happened in the last 22 months? Businesses have closed, even long-term anchor businesses that have prevailed in our area for 40 years. Closed and gone. It’s so sad. Fires have started (we had one right in our building that affected us greatly for months). Socialization and dating had ceased for a bit of time and life, as we knew it, no longer existed. It’s daunting to even wrap our heads around it all, still now, as the clouds begin to part.
At the headquarters of love, we have seen miracles occur during the last 22 months. Our word-of-mouth referrals and community connections powered us thru this exceptional period in history. My mission and purpose to be your REAL DEAL Matchmaker was reinforced by leaps and bounds. Our phone has been ringing off the hook for months and we have increased our core team by demand. I have repeatedly said to myself and my peer group: “WOW, I must have done something right all these years!” It’s been a full revival for me. I have never been happier all around and I want the same for all of you.
Sometimes we get down ourselves, right? Why aren’t I more perfect? Why did I make this mistake or that mistake? Why did I enroll a person that I knew would be a problem? I did it because I REALLY believe there is a pot for lid, seriously. Anyone who knows me “well” knows that much about me and how I work. Some clients simply take longer to reach their goal and this often has nothing to do with me or my club. Patience is a virtue in any relationship, especially in love.
Our 2020-21 matches have been MAGICAL. The profile of the “typical” client who has started during this period is optimistic, proactive, successful, authentic, busy and they DO NOT want to mingle with players that seem to flood the online dating network. My clients are also more realistic as to who is the best match for them, recognizing that their classic “type” may not be the best match for them for the long haul. I’m seeing a theme of open mindedness and willingness to get it right, this time.
Online dating has gotten WORSE (so you tell me). Just when you thought it would get better, it has PLUMMETED. Some sites are even trying to say they have a new matchmaking spin. I find that FUNNY. Also, baloney. There is only one REAL MATCHMAKER with credentials like mine, bar none. By the way, you are lucky I reside in your area. Hidden agendas abound online like tawk-a-date or date-a-rama (whatever their names may be on that day). If you value who you are and what you have accomplished in your life then by all means, hire a real person (IN PERSON) to do the work for you. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing again and again expecting different results. Give it up already and step it up. This is not rocket science. Online dating is like Las Vegas. Period. You could win, but the odds are you could lose. You could lose your heart, money, soul, and time. You are opening yourself up for failure, over and over again. You are rolling the dice with your life physically, financially, and emotionally. Call it quitsville, while you still can.
At the end of the day, the best way to meet someone is through a friend, BUT since our friends are not thinking about us 24/7, you need to connect with someone who does this professionally. In the same way you have a CPA, doctor, or dentist. Leave it to the pros and listen when they speak.
That being said, show some optimistic grace as you enter this new year. Visualize what you want in 2022. We all have been worried for one reason or another. We didn’t have a clue what was going on and some still don’t have a clue. But YOU do. So, this year, SOAR. Spread your wings. No one is going to do it for you. Don’t let another year run away from you.
Form a strategic alliance with a woman in the know who is very connected (yours truly). How you spend your days and nights will define you and your future (and your children’s if you are a single parent). So, don’t take this all for granted anymore, please. Love your life and love yourself enough to find the best partner for you. Find your person. It’s NEVER too late! I promise. You can and will love again, regardless of your age. Time to make some moves and give yourself permission to come join us.
I have so much more happiness to share with all of you. I will save it for our in-person meeting!
Thank you ALL for your love for so many years! I am so blessed and I love to share! I look forward to hearing your story very soon.
