My first appointment today is a man ,late 30’s, ABS, his long term goal is marriage and children.
He was referred to me by his friend.

I said “It was really nice of your friend to refer you to me considering I just had a brief phone conversation with her.”
He said “She and I have been talking about calling you for a year and a half. After she spoke to you she encouraged me to call you.”

Although he has always been single, he does have some significant relationship history including a 9 year relationship with a girl he met when he was 12 years old.
He said “When I was in my 20’s I did not think I wanted to have children, but that changed a few years ago. I have always liked kids and I now I know I want to be married and have a family.”
He has been meeting ladies through online dating services but they either are not serious about getting married or they need to be rescued financially.
He said “Do you charge the ladies the same for your services as the men?”
I said “Yes, that is my way of knowing everyone is equally committed, and that makes a difference.”

He enjoys scuba diving, bowling, light hiking, movies, theaters, plays, and he would love to go to the Caribbean.
He said “You can also add cooking with two exclamation marks. I love to cook and entertain at home.”

He was concerned that his religion score ( a “1” on a scale of “0” to “10”) might make him hard to match.
I said “How do you respond when someone asks you about religion?”
He said “I say I am agnostic, that I believe in the Golden Rule, and I consider myself to be a good, moral person.”
I said “Then that’s what I will tell them. I find religion to be one of the more flexible areas as far as matching is concerned. I think a lady who is a “4” or below in religion would probably be comfortable with your answer. Most people approach religion with the attitude of, if you can respect what they believe, they can respect what you believe.”

He is attracted to ladies who are “curvy”, not too thin.
I said “That is refreshing to hear because most men seem to prefer the Barbie doll type.”
He said “Well, not me, I like a lady who has some meat on her bones.”

He is going to be the guinea pig for his friend and try my service first.
He is a nice Midwestern fellow, has a great job, is nice looking and I have some good matches for him.

My second appointment is a “be back”, a man I interviewed in January. He is early 60’s, divorced, educated, and his long term goal is marriage.

He said “When I came to see you at the beginning of the year I did not want to make the financial investment in your service. I thought I could do this on my own but I am so tired of wasting time meeting ladies and having it go nowhere. I will look much more forward to the holidays if I have someone special in my life.”

He does not rodeo anymore but he enjoys going to rodeos and he occasionally goes horseback riding. He has a motorcycle and some ATVs. He likes hiking, traveling, dining out, collecting, music and watching TV. He tried skydiving once and would like to do it again. He has a big deck with a hot tub and fabulous views.

He said “I want to share the company of a true friend, partner and the last ‘true’ love of my life.”
Women in Colorado seem to really like men from the Midwest and today I signed up two of them!

I am invited to attend the wedding of one of my Perfectly Matched couples. They are getting married one year from the day they met, St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th, 2014, in an Irish pub. They are requesting everyone to wear green, and, yes, her wedding dress is going to be green. I have been to a lot of weddings in the last 25 years and this is one I definitely won’t miss.
