Dear Lianne,

I’m a early sixties woman who is financially set. I am wanting to meet someone. I have a great, full life and am wondering if I intimidate men. I’m fit, stylish and have a heart of gold. I travel, golf and have great friends. Upon the urging of my friends I created an online profile. I was excited by the potential of some of the fellows who reached out to me.

I actually have met a few men. They all seem to be looking for the next best thing. The first guy expected that I would join him in bed after a coffee and croissant. I laughed and declined. Needless to say, that was the end of him. The next fellow who was potentially worth a second meeting, looked at me as we left the coffee shop and said, “I might call you.” I thought don’t bother but didn’t say anything. I actually was secretly hoping he would. How can a man determine by a 15 minute coffee meeting if I’m the one? The rest weren’t as they described themselves.

I’m getting tired of these fellows treating me like I’m not good enough. What should I do and how is a matchmaker different?

Dear Cecile,

Unfortunately, your story is all too familiar. I have been a matchmaker for twenty three years, long before online dating made it’s debut. I have witnessed a shift in dating practice where as a result of online dating people are often treated as if they are disposable. Working with a good matchmaker should eliminate this. My clients must follow a code of conduct, which simply is treating people respectfully.

We coach our clients and have met each and every one if them in person. We have criminal record checks on all of our clients and they must be non-smokers. Online dating has lost it’s appeal and old fashioned matchmaking has become the tried and true way to find love.

Do not compromise your standards by accepting inappropriate behaviour from people you meet. Feel free to read the section on my website about the differences between a matchmaker and online dating.

Call me at 306-978-LOVE (5683) or 204-257-LOVE (5683) and we can talk about how finding love through us is so much better.
