Lifemates Compliment - It worked for me
My name is Tracy and I became a member after I clicked on an ad that popped up while I was online. I had been doing online dating for quite a while and was looking for something that wasn't such a waste of time. In fact, I thought it was another online site when I clicked the information button, but it was really different. The first big difference was that someone called to speak to me. I think her name was Karen, but she was very nice and took the time to ask me what I was looking for and to book an appointment. I work different shifts as a nurse, so this was not easy. I was a little nervous about having to go for an appointment, but I was curious about what they would do.
When I arrived for the appointment I had to wait for the representatives to finish with other clients so they gave me some forms to fill out and some personality test to do while I was waiting. After about 20 minutes, my interviewer started our meeting and was asking me all kinds of questions about my marriage and dating. This was a little nerve-racking, but she told me that the main reason for the interview was to screen and qualify people for membership and that one of the things they screened was emotional availability! I thought this was great because so many times I had met guys that just wanted casual dating or they were not done with their ex's. This interviewing went on for over an hour, but it was helpful. I didn't realize how easy it was to date the wrong kind of guy. I learned a lot and in the end decided I'd give it a try even though it was more money than I thought.
Right away I got a call from a matchmaker that wanted to review my file. I received my first match about 3 weeks after that and it was horrible! LOL. We didn't connect at all! I have 2 kids in their early teens and this man didn't have kids and couldn't understand the life. I also was not attracted. The next match was attractive, but no spark. I also think he wasn't in to me as well. Then I waited almost 6 weeks for a match and called Natasha to find out what was going on. We also adjusted my wish-list a little and Natasha gave me some feedback on the matching process. As it turns out, one of my matches wasn't available, so they were working on another. Long story short, this went on for almost 5 months until I was matched with Steven. Steven and I had a great first date and similar dating experiences. We didn't have a ton of hobbies in common, but we both were open to trying new things and letting some things be our own. Steven will NEVER enjoy scrap-booking! We have been dating seriously for almost 8 months now and I am very happy. I guess if I were to sum up my experiences, I would say that using a matchmaker requires some patience but when they get it right, they hit home-runs.
