There’s a huge amount of first date advice out there but when it comes to that all-important — or perhaps even more important — second date, the advice becomes a little thin on the ground. Read on for my top 7 conversations topics that will see you through.
It’s no secret that relationships take work.
People outsource all aspects of their lives in order to save time, you can spend money to make time and you can spend money on a time-saving service. Matchmaking is no different.
At The Vida Consultancy, our psychology-led, assessment-based character profiling allows us to rigorously analyze which of our members hold those core values that most accurately complement those of our clients. It’s our precision and highly defined way of working that’s led us to an amazing 85% success rate, unrivaled in the matchmaking industry.
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.
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.
When a (heterosexual) man gets married, it can often seem that he loses his friends. Is there any truth to this?
