Let’s be honest, we all harbor romantic notions of meeting the person of our dreams serendipitously. But the harsh reality is that juggling a demanding career, a busy lifestyle and elevated expectations the odds of meeting someone organically are one in a million. Many of today’s singles are now turning to modern approaches, such as online dating, singles events and or hire a Matchmaker to jumpstart their love life,
So shouldn’t we be thankful that we have all these choices available, rather than hide our participation in shame?
Seriously, why are we embarrassed and uncomfortable about admitting we need help? Is it the fear of being perceived desperate? But what’s so desperate about proactively seeking your personal goals. You wouldn’t be judged in the same way if you were being proactive to achieve your professional goals. Isn’t a failure someone who gives up after not being able to fulfill their desired goal? Using a matchmaking service shows you’re not giving up, you’re simply exploring alternative ways to achieve your relationship goals.
Surely matchmaking services like Something More are now at the height of social acceptance with all the media attention. There are even several top rated reality shows depicting the behind the scenes of the matchmaking business. Using a matchmaking service is the new luxury for yourself. You have the career, the house, the car, etc. Why not take charge of your love life and stop leaving things to chance.

As we try to disassociate ourselves from using these matchmaking services, we need to use logic. Imagine you want to go to Dallas, Flying is the most convenient and quickest method, but there are no flights available. Although it’s not ideal, you now have to use an alternative mode of transport. By not flying, did this make you a failure? Should you be perceived as a social misfit? I think not. In fact you should be pleased with yourself that you made it to your destination, despite the transportation challenge.

At the end of the day, you’re on a journey to find your life partner. The mode of transport used on your journey is irrelevant, as long as you reach your ‘destiny-ation’ – you shouldn’t feel embarrassed or ashamed – the most important part is that you get there in the end!
