My first appointment today is a “be back”, a man, early 30’s that I interviewed a couple of weeks ago. His parents are good friends with a couple who met and married through Perfectly Matched 20 years ago. Because I had all of his information, I already had a match arranged for him. I appreciate someone his age being serious minded enough to make his personal life a priority. He was married very young and very briefly and has a child who lives in another state. He would love to be married again and have more children. I look forward to helping him find the right lady.

My second appointment is a lady, mid 40’s, divorced, educated, self employed, and her long term goal is probably to be married.
She said “I don’t want to limit myself and I am open to the fact that the right man for me may, or may not, want to be married. However, I do think I would want to live with someone in a committed, long term relationship.”

She is very physically active and enjoys biking, hiking, skiing, running, and doing the Incline. She also enjoys music, concerts, dancing, yoga, and traveling.
She said “Since I saw Under the Tuscan Sun with Diane Lane I have wanted to go to Italy with someone special. Now I have the time and the money, I just need the man.”

She is very open on her preferences as far as age, height, education, race.
She said “There are two show stoppers for me, smoking and someone who drinks too much. I drink wine and occasionally a Margarita, but I don’t drink every day and I don’t want to be with someone who drinks every day.”

The personality trait she finds most appealing is a sense of humor.
She said “If a man can make me laugh, I am his forever.”

She was referred to me by a friend who has been very happy in a relationship with a man I matched her with in 2002.
She said “Find me a man like Dave and I will be a happy camper.”
Ironically, the first man I am going to match her with is named David.

I just had a conversation with a lady who was very excited about a man I matched her with until he met her dog.
She said “We have gone out three times and everything was great until he met my dog. My dog doesn’t like him and my dog has never been wrong.”
I said “Maybe your dog was having a bad day. Why not try having him around your dog one more time before you decide to quit dating him altogether?’
She agreed.
I am going to add to her profile “Dog must like you.”
