My first appointment today is a man, late 50’s, divorced, educated, and his long term goal is to find the right lady.

He said “Never say never, but I don’t see myself getting married again.”
He views marriage differently after two divorces.
He said “They say you don’t really get to know someone until you live with them. I say you don’t really get to know someone until you divorce them.”
He had one positive experience and one negative with his divorces.
He said “Neither one something I want to repeat.”

He has grown children and grandchildren and family is a very important part of his life. They take fun trips, have dinner at each other’s homes, and enjoying spending time together.

He enjoys golf, brisk walking, reading, theater, and travel.
He said “I have traveled all over the world but I would enjoy seeing some places closer to home. International travel is not something I would seek out at this particular time.”
He also thinks a long road trip could be a lot of fun with the right person.

He said “I am not here to date a bunch of ladies. I will know her when I meet her. I am going to give you all the information you need to help me find the right lady. You can be my filter.”
I heard it coming…it’s been a long time since I have had a “bonus guy”.
He said “If you find me the right lady in the first three matches, I will give you a $1000 bonus.”
I said “OK, I will put it on the contract.”

I love bonus guys.

My second appointment is a client, early 40’s, coming in to reconnect. She met someone on her own and dated him for almost two years.
She said “It was a good relationship but I came to realize that he was not a man I could be with for the rest of my life.”
I asked “What was missing?”
She said “Passion, excitement, enthusiasm, positive energy. It just felt flat.”

She thinks she should try being a cougar so I lower her lower end age preference from 38 to 32.
