What they often do not understand is that the men are not always interested in meeting them.
The number of times I have wrestled with how I could gently inform my client that the man she chose to be introduced to was not attracted to her is endless.
Paying for the services of a matchmaker doesn't magically increase one's appeal to the opposite sex nor does it provide a guarantee that she will find everlasting love.
While I might introduce her to her dream man, she might not be his "dream woman." She truly has no idea what goes on behind the scenes in finding her someone who fits most of her criteria.
I continued to commute to Philly to work with some longtime fitness clients.
I was very passionate about the fitness industry...
Clients come to me with a long list of deal breakers and very strict requirements.
They often request multiple profiles of men who possess these qualities and treat the matchmaking service as a candy store, filled with a myriad of "perfect" treats who will all fall head-over-heels in love with her at first sight.I am not in the business of hurting anyone's feelings.I do try to provide constructive feedback but often it is a matter of a lack of chemistry.Not only is it a baseless and absurd accusation, it's insulting to both me and the man who dated her.The only fake dates that occur are depicted on reality tv, and last I checked, there wasn't a camera crew following this woman and man on their three dates.She has a network of New Yorkers who have thrived in their careers and their passions - and she knows how to use it.
