My first appointment today is a lady, 50, divorced, grown children and her long term goal is absolutely to be married. She is new to Colorado Springs and was referred to me by a good friend of mine. My friend said “Donna, this lady is beautiful and single and I told her she must meet you.”

I am glad my friend encouraged her because she is not only beautiful, she is also a very real, genuine, down to earth lady. She is very close to her grown children and grandchildren and moving to Colorado Springs is totally a new start for her.

She said “My family is so important to me, and I need a man who understands and respects that I need to go visit them and they will come to visit me.”

She loves country and western dancing, horseback riding, river rafting, boating, motorcycling, theaters, concerts, is a certified scuba diver and wants to go sky diving. She is a beginner skier but she plans to advance with that now that she lives in Colorado.

She is not only excited about making her personal life a priority, she is also excited about making new friends and exploring Colorado. I already have her first match arranged and they are going to meet next week. Lucky fellow……

My next appointment is a “be back”, a man I interviewed two years ago. He is late 50’s, divorced, educated, and his long term goal is finding the right lady and “wherever that goes, it goes.”

He said “I have no preconceived notions about what can happen with the right lady. If she wants to be married, I’ll marry her. If she wants to live together, I’ll live with her. If she wants to maintain separate residences, we’ll have two houses. As long as she loves me and I love her, nothing else matters.” Guess what his affection score is? On a scale of “0” to “10”, he is a “9”.

He said “I should have signed up with you two years ago. I could have saved myself a lot of heartache and a lot of money.” He agreed with me, however, that everyone comes into your life for a reason. He said “I think the reason she came into my life was to remind me to listen to my gut feelings. I knew from the very beginning that it wasn’t right but I was so attracted to her, I kept trying to make it work.”

I said “So the lesson you learned was?”
He said “The lesson I learned was what you told me in the interview two years ago, physical attraction only takes you so far.”
I said “I look forward to helping you find a lady who is right for you, AND you are attracted to.”
He said “I trust that you will.” And I will.
