Exclusive dating service
I was recently approached by a widower who was interested in my HIM exclusive matchmaking service to find a new partner.The gentleman was in his late 50s, was the CEO of a well-known company with an international lifestyle and he had lost his wife t...'You need someone generous,' she said, my husband's name unspoken between us, 'with a bank account, not a piggy bank'.And so, just before Christmas, I meet Mairead Molloy.
She tells me I seem to have narrowed my options to Paul Mc Cartney but, rather valiantly, accepts the challenge to help me find Mr Right. Once a client has been interviewed and then vetted - Mairead visits them at home, checking out passports and, if necessary, decree absolutes - she will then introduce them to prospective partners all over the world (rich people, it seems, have no truck with annoying things like distance and time zones).International Matchmaker and Dating Coach Trea Tijmens contributed 6 best practices that she recommends her single clients that apply to meeting new people to Jack Vincent's book "A Sale is a Love Affair".Trea Tijmens, CEO of Success Match, Switzerland's largest dating and matchmaking service and matchmaker at exclusive matchmaking firm HIM-Matchmaking was mentioned in the book "Holding Out for a Hero" by Lesley Lawson Botez.Miraculously, given that I was the editor of a woman's fashion magazine, before meeting my husband in my early 40s (then a BBC journalist, he came to interview me; as soon as we got married, he gave up his job and started having sex with other women), I had only ever had three boyfriends, two of whom hadn't even liked me that much.Liz Jones braves the snow in Times Square, New York, as she searches for Mr Right I think the reason I never met men was that I was either working, or sat at home, wishing they'd come to me, which, of course, they didn't.
With such a terrible track record, I started to realise that, if I couldn't meet someone when I was in my prime, how on earth was I going to meet someone now I'm 50?
