Dating Over 40: How to Become a Millionaire Matchmaker

I read a great interview (from the Wall Street Journal digital netowrk )with Patti Stanger, Bravo’s Millionaire Matchmaker on how she became a full-time matchmaker.  She started out in corporate America but eventually shifted her part time matchmaking business to her full-time passion. That’s often the story with entrepreneurs who decide to just go for it. At some point, you have to decide to take a risk…or not.

The same could be said for finding love.:
– You try the same old strategy year after year
– You go after the same type of guy, guy after guy
– You visit the same bar scene weekend after weekend

Do these strategies work for you?

Nope. Yet , week after week, year after year you try them as if these tired methods will suddenly start working. You keep thinking its got to kick in right?

As your dating coach, it’s my job to say, “That’s not likely to happen!”  Yes, anything is possible. You could even win the lottery. But your chances are so much better if you buy a ticket. Get it?

Take a lesson from Patti. Three quarters of her matchmaking job is coaching her clients for dating success. If your methods haven’t produced a loving partner in over a year, perhaps it’s worth revisiting your strategies.

You might even consider working with a dating coach. Now, I’m not asking you to sign up today. But, keep this in mind – the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, but expecting a different outcome. The question becomes – what new method will you try to jump start your love life this summer? What risk will you take to get out of your comfort zone and try something new?

I’m over here routing for you! I’ve been in your shoes. I know how it feels to be single, frustrated, lonely and sometimes in despair.

On the other hand, I know you can find love. i did it, so many of my clients have done it. And I know if I could do it, and my clients can do it, you can find love too. Take a risk.

Take a tip from Patti’s entrepreneurial spirit and her matchmaking expertise. Try something new. Give yourself the opportunity to succeed with a fresh approach! Love is totally worth the effort.
