The elder of Denver’s matchmakers, Michele the Matchmaker, shares more dating advice taken from “The Complete Idiot’s Guide to Finding Mr./Ms. Right”.
The book states, “He’s a keeper if…he likes your body just the way it is. No man should make you alter your physical appearance to suit his desires. If he insists that you physically change something, take the hint: he doesn’t want you…he wants someone else”.
Remember to say “thank you”. The book says, you learned it when you were three. It’s as important now as it was then. Nothing is more of a turn-off than someone taking your generosity for granted. I see that with many of my clients. They rarely thank me, maybe they don’t feel the need since I am being paid. But it makes a very poor impression. Remember, the matchmaker is the one who presents you to perspective matches…treat her well! It’s in your best interest.
The third piece of advice I’m sharing from the book and totally agreeing with is: “Don’t string along a Mr./Ms. Wrong. Just because you don’t have anyone else at the moment is no reason to leave the poor person hanging. If the chemistry isn’t there, cut your losses and move on”. And let them move on and find someone who is really into them! That last bit is from me…
Many of these things are common sense but over time we forget about them. So, just some reminders from Denver Matchmaker Michele.
