How Much Baggage Do You Carry?

Monday, November 18th, 2013

How much baggage do you carry with you into your relationships? Some of us are aware of the baggage we bare, while others are clueless of what baggage even is? Baggage can be defined as the pain and negative experiences you are carrying around from your past relationship(s), and children/grandchildren still under your roof.

People who are unable to forgive the past are doomed to get dumped again. Superimposing old experiences into new relationships is a method of self sabotage. One needs to be able to see each matchmaking relationship as independent from the next. Because you were cheated on, verbally or physically abused, left for another woman/man, stuck footing the bills for the kids, or other hurtful acts doesn’t mean the next person in your life will do the same.

When a new encounter triggers past emotions, you need to dig deep. Are these the same issues with each passing relationship? Have you been blaming every single relationship on your new relationship? Do you find yourself asking, where are all the normal people? Or why am I still single? Could it possibly be, gasp! You who is causing these problems? If you have unresolved hurt or anger, one step to unload your baggage is to acknowledge your role. This is the advice of your millionaire matchmaking consultant.

Take an inventory of past relationships, identify the patterns, accept your role, own your shortcomings, and remember each partner is different from the past.

It takes a lot of courage to accept responsibility in failed relationships, but it must be done in order to move on and have a healthy relationships. Once you identify the pattern, you will come to a resolution. And if you discover you had no responsibility in the failed relationship because your past partner was on another planet, that’s a way of letting go as well and preparing to trust again! Release the fear and pain. Forgive the past. Move forward.
Your high end matchmaker will take the time to get to know you and your needs, and she will not steer you in the wrong direction. Once you let go of the past, your millionaire matchmaker can help you move forward.

Moving On: How Do I Know If I’m truly over My Ex?

Monday, September 30th, 2013

When you’re looking to get back into the dating scene, getting over your ex is the first step! You might think you’re fully over them but it’s not always the case. With these tips you can get over your ex and move on, get back to the world, and find the right match for you.

  • Don’t call your ex for 60 days: Not talking to your ex will help you clear your head and think rationally about your next step. Block texting and emails too.
  • Don’t drink: Drinking can lead to DUI’s dialing under the influence, and the only thing worse than talking to your ex in those first 60 days is talking to them when you aren’t 100% yourself
  • Ask a friend to help: Asking friends to go out with you will help keep you away from feeling lonely.
  • Don’t Second Guess: Sometimes we think that the person we lost really is the one we’re meant to be with. In cases like this, start dating slowly and really think about your situation. Decide if you really believe that they are the one, or if you’re simply feeling lonely.
  • Make a list: When it comes down to it, sometimes we want to go back to the person. Make a list of things you like and things you don’t in a partner and even about your last partner. If the cons outweigh the pros, you were probably right in ending the relationship.

After you’ve gotten past the heartache of the brake up, it’s time to get back out there. Finding the right match for you can be a long and tedious process, but with help from Model Quality Introductions, will not have to deal with the difficulties of dating.

How Much Should You Drink on a Date?

Monday, September 30th, 2013

When it comes to alcoholic beverages, how much is OK to drink on a date?

Of course you want to have a nice time on your date, so loosening up with a nice glass of wine can certainly help! The question is, when does it stop helping, and start hurting your date?

Factors to consider when figuring out how much to drink on a date:

  • Do you follow his lead?
  • Do you not drink at all?
  • Do you limit yourself to 1 drink or 2 drinks?
  • Does it depend on where you go on your date?
  • Whether you are having a meal?
  • Whether or not he orders a 2nd or 3rd drink.
  • How long does the date last?

These are all great questions, and one of the reasons it makes it so hard to figure out what the correct answer is.

My advice on first date drinking

Most people can easily have 2 drinks and still have their full wits about them. Pour that 3rd drink however and inhibitions and wit start to go. So stop at 2 drinks, regardless of what you are doing on your date, how much you are eating, or how long your date lasts, just call it quits.

Some people say, “But we are eating a big meal, I can tolerate more” or “we are watching a baseball game or other sporting event for several hours, a drink an hour will be fine.” Why risk it? Do you really want to reveal this much on a first date? Too much alcohol ends up providing too much information to your date.

So before you go on that next first date, agree to limit yourself and stick to it.

If you are feeling nervous about your date, try some other forms of relaxation. You might go for a nice run to clear your mind, or stop by your local yoga studio for an hour of peace and quiet. Take a few deep breaths, and know that there is never a second chance to make a first impression.

What Makes a Gold Digger Truly a Gold Digger?

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2010

Nobody likes to talk about a topic as delicate as love in the crass terms of finance, but the fact is that few things will have more of an impact on your lifestyle & happiness as whom you choose to marry. Should the partnership fail, men stand to lose half of their assets.  Meeting with successful men daily, I often surprisingly get asked how much money is enough to attract a worthwhile partner.  Men know women by nature are monogamous and want someone that will truly love them for the long haul. However, they also want someone who will be a good provider.  So, how do you separate out women only looking for financial betterment?  After all, women don’t come to me because they want to meet starving artists.
A gold digger is a woman that brings nothing to the table other than her looks, and expects the world in return. She feels that any man is lucky to be in her presence, regardless of his accomplishments, because she has won the genetic lottery. She will not give the time of day to someone that does not lavishly spend money on her prior to intimacy or a commitment. Some poor men lack self respect and may be attracted to her absurd entitlement issues just to be in the presence of a beautiful woman. Some men inherit wealth and may feel that the only way to date 9’s and 10’s is to buy their love. I strongly believe the old adage that “a fool and his money are soon parted”.  I have sat down with many men whose divorces have made the public eye. They were targets for these gold diggers that rush to the alter, after a whirlwind sexual relationship that the guy had never experienced before. Let’s take Brad Pitt as an example.  Why would the most handsome man on the planet adopt refugee children with a woman who isn’t even his wife.  If it doesn’t work out, he will pay child support for 18 years on a slew of kids which are not even his. A fool and his money… I am all about an exchange of powers between two consenting adults. Just don’t marry a gold digger and bring kids into the equation. If you are not sure if she is a gold digger, introduce her to a sweet girl and ask the other girl her opinion.  Girls can tell this. If she’s only in it for the money, the other girl will tell you the truth. Another litmus test is what I call ‘the rule of three’. If after you have done three nice things in a row for a girl and she does not reciprocate in any way whatsoever, you probably have a gold digger. Most sweet girls would have baked you cookies,  bought you a card, or shown some appreciation for your gifts, dinners, etc. After 16 years in the executive matchmaking business, I can spot a materialistic girl before the door even closes behind her. Recognize the telltale signs- the conversations are all about her, her needs, and her problems. This should be a red flag and you should turn and walk away.
