Single at Christmas?

London Matchmaking AgencyFirst of all, and this may seem a little bit radical… you don’t have to be in a relationship just for the sake of it – at Christmas or any time. If you are happy being single, that’s great but you probably wouldn’t be reading this anyway.

So if you are single this Christmas, that too is not a disaster. Here in London the run up to Christmas is super-hectic. Parties, work events, deadlines, travel planning. Who actually has time to think about going into a relationship at this time?

It’s only really during the holidays that we have time to sit back and reflect and think about what’s missing. We all know we only have one life (unless you know something we don’t) and we all try to live it to the max. But if our lives are unbalanced and we are being who we envisaged, if what we think is our ‘blueprint’ for life is not measuring up,  then we will start to get unhappy.

We meet many clients who are super successful and who have worked hard to achieve what they have. Some of them want to move on to have a fulfilling relationship and build a family, some have a family and would like to meet that one person who makes then feel at home, always. Human beings have an innate need to be loved and to love. This can obviously be expressed in many ways, but usually it is expressed through a loving partnership.

If you are busy working, travelling and partying during this Christmas season, have a wonderful time!  If you then take some time to reflect on what you wish for 2015, and one of those wishes is to find your soul mate, then please give us a call or send us an email.  December is a time where we really gear up to make your January extremely exciting.

Have the most wonderful Christmas ever and a very Happy and Peaceful New Year to you. We very much look forward to helping to make your wishes come true in 2015!

We would be very happy to hear from you either before Christmas or after.

Why a strict blueprint is not a good idea in Matchmaking

london matchmaking serviceWe all have our preferences when choosing a partner, and with a little time, we do tend to establish a ‘blueprint’ of our ‘perfect’ one.

But the interesting thing is, as we become older, we re-evaluate that blueprint and realise that, actually, it’s probably been holding us back from finding the love of our life.

That’s not to say we ‘settle’, it’s a development of understanding that the world does not work to a strict blueprint; and possibly that we are not perfect and so really shouldn’t expect others to be.

Here at Elan.London, we have been overjoyed ( nay, ecstatic!) when a certain lady or gentleman has relaxed his or her very strict criteria and meets the partner who fulfills their life totally – someone they would have never met if they had not relaxed that criteria.

If you have ever watch Sex and the City, you will remember Charlotte being a prime example of finding a joyous relationship with someone who would have been ‘off her radar’ previously.

We do of course work on our clients preferences and don’t deviate from that too much, unless…

We feel that a particular person is such an amazing match, a totally unmissable introduction – then we just have to suggest her or him.  We would not be doing our job properly if we didn’t.  It makes us very, very happy (and maybe a little smug) when things work out more than just fine.

If you are thinking of engaging Matchmaking Services, by all means have your preferences to hand but also please, please be open to new opportunities.  Some people feel that they will miss out on allocated introductions if they agree to meet someone who does not tick every single box but here at Elan.London, we have no maximum introductions and if we feel that a certain person is perfect for you, we will suggest that introduction and tell you why; and you can rest assured that it will not count as one of your guaranteed introductions.
