THERE’S A LOT TO LOVE ABOUT 2020
First of all, we want to wish you a very Happy New Year!
It’s also the perfect time to think about your life landscape for 2020 and what you want to achieve.
If relationship success is your priority, there’s not going to be a better time to find a partner. We’re excited to share the start of this new year with you, which will see many more relationships, engagements and anniversaries (watch this space for for fantastic milestone events, and many opportunities to find love!)
“What is it like to be a 30-something year old matchmaker?” I mean, we didn’t even know it was a career option. Nothing supersedes the fact that we are motivated and passionate about our craft – identifying potential, meaningful relationships and encouraging people to find their own happily ever after.
As we usher in a new decade, our team brings to you – their own expertise, based on their professional (and personal experiences).
Part 1: SINGLE: And (still) looking
#1 Self care
The most necessary, and yet the most ignored aspect. Happiness starts with you first – not with your relationships. We often forget that until we are not complete within ourselves, we will not be able to give love and joy to others. If you feel good and exude wholeness, you’d be surprised how well it rubs off on others, too.
#2 Make an effort, but don’t overdo it
Swiped right for a 100, chatted with 30, went on 18 dates and still haven’t found ‘the one’? Make a mindful effort, sleep over decisions that require deliberating and choose quality over volume. Indulging in the gamification of dating means the real deal will always elude you – give it your best, or nothing at all.
When’s the last time you pick up a new skill? Use the free time on hand to focus on self-growth or spending time with family. Meditate. Hit that yoga class. Learn a new language. Travel to the places you’ve always wanted to go to. Make things happen. You never know what comes your way.
#4 What you seek, is seeking you
The Universe acts in strange ways – and many events in life happen when you least expect them to. Being pushy or giving your partner unrealistic ‘deadlines’ can actually repel them. As matchmakers, we feel that attitude (open-minded, positivity) is the biggest game-changer of them all. Love will always be a risk; give yourself a true chance, and put your best foot forward, always.
#5 Don’t accept anything less than you deserve
Don’t be in a relationship for the sake of it, one or just because all your friends are ‘happily married’. However, this is also a good time to assess unrealistic expectations that you seek from your partner. If you meet a great person, give him / her the benefit of doubt where necessary. The idea of perfection can often paint an unrealistic illusion if we’re not mindful.
