My first appointment today is with Kevin from Wall Graffiti. I get teased a lot, a lot about my ads in the restrooms but, after referrals, it is my second best source of new leads. It is time for a new ad and I am excited to be working with Kevin to help create it. We don’t always agree, and I usually end up agreeing with him..not this time. Out with the pink and white background, different picture of me, different picture of the couple. This couple appears to be in their 40’s, much more age appropriate for my business. Ken and Barbie must go. It should be in a restroom near you in the next two weeks. If you are interested in considering the wall ads for your business visit Kevin and Anissa at . It has worked great for my business.

My second appointment is a lady, mid 30’s, ABS, educated, her long term goal is marriage and children. However, when it comes to children, it could be a child of her own, adoption, or helping raise his children. She has not had what she considers a serious relationship for over ten years. She is direct and straight forward and feels men are intimidated by her. She is also nonconforming and very open minded. She likes men who are big and husky. Women are almost always more comfortable with men who are bigger and taller than they are. As much as she wants to be married and have children, she is not sure she can afford my service. She said “Is there any guarantee?” I said “I can guarantee you will meet serious minded men, there is no time frame on my service, I serve as a filter and do all the work.” She said “I am not sure this will work for me.” I said “The only way you will know is if you do it and if anyone guarantees you they will find you the right man you should walk out their door.” She is going to take some time to think about it and get back to me.

My third appointment today is a “be back”, a man I interviewed last May has come full circle. He has been doing the online services and the last lady he met made him think about calling me again. They went out a couple of times and she told him she just wanted to be friends. He was fine with that and they agreed to get together for dinner. She lives in Denver and something told him she was going to cancel the date. He waited until the last possible minute to get ready and she called to say she met someone else and wanted to cancel their date. He said “I remembered what you said about meeting serious minded ladies at Perfectly Matched and every lady I met either went back to her old boyfriend or met someone new.” He is very tired of wasting his time and he is ready to be married and have kids. He is early 30’s, ABS, educated, very financially stable and goal oriented. He has already emailed me his Ideal Relationship and I like it so much I am going to share it.

Ideal Relationship:

I am looking for the country love song kind of relationship. I am a romantic at heart. I look for a woman that appreciates the things I do to better myself and build a stronger foundation / future for us both. She would be strong enough to stand up to me when I am wrong but the grace to criticize me without rejecting me. Understand that I am not always perfect and at the end of the day, I still have those pesky male tendencies. Someone who values time spent with friends and family. A focus on building the strongest relationship we can. We both would have a strong constitution and try very hard to never put ourselves in a situation that would give the other reason to doubts our commitment and/or our character.

A woman who doesn’t take herself too seriously and isn’t above doing something fun, a little crazy and maybe a little childish like dancing in the rain and running to jumping in every puddle we find trying to splash the other person. Reckless and carefree we would live life by our own rules. The banter that keeps each other on their toes and keeps us both excited to see what the next day brings us. Together we would be just as happy to tour Europe as cuddled up on the couch with ice cream and a movie. At different times we would take turns pulling the other out of their comfort zone to try something new that they would have never tried before. Through life we would passionately explore and learn with together. Like many people talk about serving your community or your neighbor we would also find joy in serving each other though good and bad times.

Maybe it’s my Scottish showing, but we would live by simple means even if we could afford more with our eye on the prize of a financially secure life and possibly working only because we wanted to not because we financially had to. No “keeping up with the Jones” needed. We would teach our kids good old American values, hard work, honesty, integrity and accountability. We would be generous with our time and charitable with our money, we would be working hard to leave a better world for our children.

Special Moments

I remember camping with my dad and brothers on several occasions in the Redwood Forests in California. My brothers getting chased by Elk, dad fighting off a bear cub that came after the water cooler full of food. Getting lost but we made up ways of finding each other in the forests. Eating the huckleberries that were everywhere in the forest.

And he is only 30 years old.
