But just why is psychology so key to a matchmaker’s success?
It’s great to be busy, whether with work, travel or family – up to a point. But what are you to do when your hectic schedule – which in many ways exists directly because of your success – begins to hinder you from forging those all-important romantic connections?
Self-care is something we all know how to do – in theory… Except it’s not. Life is pretty damn tough sometimes, and once you let your self-care slip, you may find it has far-reaching ramifications – including on your love life.
Breakups are tough. Starting a new relationship after a breakup is difficult. You may feel sad, angry, even determined to get back together; these emotions are tied to your ex. Taking time for yourself is key and will help you close that chapter in your life. And one of the first questions you need to ask yourself is, how do you know when you’re ready to date again?
As with all relationships, there is the pending question mark that lingers over: will it work out in the long term? And, as hard as it is to accept, you probably have very little control over this. All you can do is control your own behavior.
New York, New York. One of the most vibrant, buzzing cities in the States, if not the world.
There are creative, exciting, inspirational people by the bucket-load. You’ll never be short of places to go, things to do, sites to see – and attractive, interesting, dynamic singletons to meet!
Whether you’re on a first date or several dates in, there are a myriad of amazing bars in this crazy city, right on your doorstep. NYC’s cutting-edge mixology culture is second to none and, rightfully, world-renowned. The city also boasts some of the most incredible views you could possibly imagine for a date spot.
Few things hurt like it.
Unfaithfulness can feel like the end of the world. It can feel like everything the two of you have built – your home, your family, your lives – was built on falsehoods, on lies.
But contrary to how you feel right now, your relationship can survive infidelity – if you want it to. It depends on how the infidelity came about, how it was found out, and perhaps also factors such as how your relationship has been historically, whether you have children and how much the two of you truly wish to survive the infidelity.
Healing is painful – and can be for both partners. Even if you’re the who’s been cheated on, wronged in so many ways, you still need to genuinely commit to the healing process – otherwise it won’t work. You can’t minimise the pain you’re feeling, and you cannot speed up the reconciliation. Sometimes you’re going to have to set aside your hurt, your pain, your anger, and think clearly.
If you’re the cheating partner, things are going to be difficult, too. However, if you truly love your partner and wish to right your wrong, hope is not lost.
As a matchmaker at an elite international matchmaking consultancy, I’m not going to go telling you that putting in a little extra effort on Tinder will miraculously find you a dragon-slaying hunk with a mansion, a yacht and an inexplicable way of winning over your notoriously picky mom.
