Doug, a recent transplant to the DC area, recently reached out to me for my matchmaking services. He explained that at 66, he had just retired from a teaching career, and was searching for a mate, not necessarily a wife. He stated that he did not want to be alone, but confided that he didn’t know whether he was appropriate for my network, given that he had been married and divorced four times.
Henry and Jeanette, both in their 60’s, were introduced four months ago and got off to a great start. Jeanette, widowed for three years, had been happily married for 27 years. Her late husband was a physician who handled all the finances in the relationship, while she raised their family and volunteered in the community. Henry, an attorney in his late 60’s, was divorced for the past eight years. He had dated dozens of women, coming close to a committed relationship, but ultimately was left disappointed and disillusioned with love.
Bruce was a handsome and wealthy 46 year old entrepreneur. He joined as an Executive Search member, which entitled him to my active recruitment efforts on his behalf. During my initial consultation with him, he expressed his desire to meet a woman who possessed the following qualities: Drop-dead gorgeous looks (an “11” on a scale of “1-10”, as he put it), age 32-38, a sweet disposition, a nurturing and generous nature, and an interesting career.
