My first appointment today called after hours last night and left a message that he had to cancel his appointment for 12:30 today but, he definitely wanted to reschedule and to please call him back. I called him back and the recording on his voice mail said “please try your call again later.” That is the same recording I got when I called to confirm and when I tried to return his initial phone call. My experience has been that anyone who does not have a voice mail does not have much of a life. Maybe that is a little exaggerated but, most people have a voice mail where you can leave a message.

My second appointment is a man, mid 50’s, separated, educated, no kids and his long term goal is possibly marriage. After a very long term marriage has ended he is looking forward to moving on with his life. He signed up today but he chooses not to start meeting ladies until his divorce is final, very soon. I told him to let me know when he was ready. I often times mention how much I enjoy helping people who have been in long term relationships and marriages start over. He is low conformity, low religion and high affection, those three scores often go hand in hand. He has explored my website and guessed what his scores would be based on the information on my website. He was almost right on. This marriage has been over for him for a long time, emotionally, passionately and almost every other way. He is seeing the light at the end of the tunnel and getting excited about this new phase in his life. Life is too short to not share with someone special, especially when you are “8.5” in affection. He is very physically fit and active and appreciates a lady who is also fit and lives a healthy life style. You must love dogs!

My third appointment is a lady, mid 40’s, divorced, hard working, and her long term goal is marriage. She is one of those “salt of the earth” kind of people. Raised her kids, her sister’s kids, worked very hard , owned her beautiful home and lost everything when the economy went downhill. Now, all the kids are grown and gone, she has a nice apartment, her job is stable and she feels has the time, and is ready to have a special man in her life. I said “I have listened to your story and it does not seem possible that you are only in your mid 40’s.” She said “I had my first child when I was 17.” She is going to think about joining Perfectly Matched and let me know in a few days. I hope I have the opportunity to work with her and help her do the one thing she has not been able to do on her own, put herself first.

I went to my grandson’s Christmas program tonight. A bunch of second graders singing Christmas songs in different languages, pretty adorable. When we were walking out I said “Jacob, you did a great job!” He said “The best thing about it is, it’s over.” Ho, ho , ho, Merry Christmas!

To be continued tomorrow…………….
