Fun time was had by all at the annual BIV Golf Tournament, hole 16, Men’s closest to the pin contest.

It’s funny how everyone fusses over the 1st of January as the start of a new year, when the fact of the matter is — many of us have a gut feeling that September 1st is the true beginning of a new start.


A fresh approach to our jobs after summer vacation (and Labour Day!)…a new school year underway…even our agrarian ancestors would bring in the harvest and plan for the future in September.  Hey, if you lived in Australia, September 1st would be first day of spring!


You get the point.  Deep in your heart you know that this is the time to make a change in your life by letting someone special enter it.  September’s birthstone is the sapphire, by the way, and its meaning is ‘clear thinking’.


Do you need any more convincing that it’s time to get in touch with us and get going?  Consider this — September is the ninth month on the calendar.  And we all know that after nine months, nice things arrive.


Listen to that September feeling in your heart.  Contact Matchmaker for Hire and turn the page on a ‘new year’.

I had the good fortune to be asked by Steve Darling to appear on his morning show to talk about the Vancouver Dating Scene, and where do people go to meet other singles?

Last week I attended a shower for Wendy and Bill, a couple I matched together  September 2010, and the big DAY is less than weeks away at a family ceremony in Mexico!!!!

Kim P (pictured right),  referred Wendy (62, pictured center) a friend of hers to me to help her in her quest to finding her soul mate.  Wendy even went on Shaw TV with me in an interview at the beginning of her soul mate journey that you can watch, and is posted on my site on my media page.   Bill, the second gent I  sent her on a date with,  didn’t start out as that instant match. They had a great time on their first date, and she said she hadn’t felt so good in ages, but she wasnt sure…..I said, Why don’t you just try seeing him again?  The next Halloween — nearly a year from their first meeting — he trick-or-treated at her door dressed up in costume, dropped to his knees, with a ring in his hand.

I can still remember her calling to tell me the news. She was crying and said, ‘If you hadn’t encouraged me to see him again, I might not have. Now I’m getting married!’”

Many Thanks to Kim, and Congratulations to the Happy Couple, Bill and Wendy!!!!!!!  Happy Retirement too!!!!!!
