Hi there! I'm April Davis dating coach and matchmaker at LUMASearch.com. Something I hear over and over as a matchmaker is: “will I ever find the one?” This question is interesting to me for two reasons. Firstly, what defines “the one?” And secondly, who has the ultimate answer to this question? We grew up with childhood fairytales and the pressure of society to “settle down” and get married. But often we are left wondering why our lives are not living up to our childhood expectations. Love and romance are much more complicated in the real world than what we read about in fairy tales or see in the movies.
Have you ever started dating someone and things were great to begin with only to be disappointed a few weeks or days later? We all have a picture in our minds of what our ideal relationship would look like. It may be half concocted from what Hollywood has sold us and the other half from seeing our friend’s perfect relationships posted all over social media.
Watch Out For These Latest Online Dating Scams
Tis the season for New Year’s resolutions, and if you’re single, it’s likely one of your resolutions is to find love.
As a professional matchmaker, I have a lot of people asking me for help this time of year. The same is true for online dating sites and apps -- many see a spike in traffic, especially on the first Sunday after New Year’s Day. It’s their Super Bowl of sorts. However, with that increased traffic comes an increased opportunity for scammers.
