My first appointment today is a “be back”, a lady I interviewed a month ago, late 40’s almost grown kids, self employed, separated for a couple of years, emotionally ready to start dating and her long term goal is marriage. Her mother and son encouraged her to call me. Her divorce should be final in the next few months. She went to Starbuck’s before she met with me today and bought me a coffee cup and cookies. She said “I bought the same thing for myself because this symbolizes a new beginning for me and I wanted to share it with you because you are going to help me.” Awwwww.. Obviously, she is very sweet and thoughtful. Her faith is very important to her and she would love to share it with a Christian man. She is creative and talented and owns a couple of businesses, but she is always exploring new ideas. She is excited to start dating and feels like this is a better way to meet new men. She said “When you marry someone what you are really marrying is their potential. Which may or may not be what you expected.” She knows she wants to be married again and she knows she never wants to be divorced again. My system of matching made sense to her and she believes I will help her find the right man, in fact, she is sure of it. The power of positive thinking always helps.

My second appointment is a lady, mid 50’s, divorced, no children, a doctor, and her long term goal is marriage. She said she was a workaholic until a couple of years ago. Today, she sets her own schedule and works much less. While she was building her nest egg almost twenty years slipped by before she has decided to make her personal life a priority. She would love to have a travel companion, partner, lover, and ideally she would like to be married. She said “I can spend the rest of my life pretty much doing whatever I want and I want to do a lot of things, but I don’t want to do them alone.” I said “It is surprising that your affection score is an eight on a scale of zero to ten considering you have not been in a relationship or excited about someone for a long time.” She said “That’s because I’m horny.” Alrighty then, I am going to get her matched!

My third appointment is another “be back”, the young lady I interviewed last Wednesday. Her mother decided Perfectly Matched was a good idea for her birthday present. I said “That is very sweet of you mother.” She said “She really wants grandchildren.” When I met with young lady last week I don’t think she was at all convinced that she wanted to be involved in a dating service before meeting with me. Now, she is actually very excited about the process and looking forward to meeting some of the men I think are good matches for her. She is going to be some man’s dream come true.

Dating 101, any time I write that you know someone made a big mistake. Feedback from a man after his first meeting “within minutes of sitting down she said maybe I should tell you about some of the men in my closet. Two hours later I realized it wasn’t a closet, it was a warehouse”…TMI….

To be continued tomorrow……
