While Covid has been a good excuse for not meeting up with just anyone, and he’s burnt out from dating apps , yet he’s never down in the dumps because he doesn’t have a partner. He would just love to meet someone who’s active and outdoorsy, and actually interested in him.
He is an amazing single Dad, 6’ in his early 40’s, that is trying to navigate his world running a niche business in Western Canada and raising his boys. For him saving time this March Break for more fun things like snowboarding, hiking, boating, eating out and spontaneous road trips or jumping on a plane almost anywhere – so he’s hired us while he enjoys spring break.
If you are open to meeting a real old fashioned valued guy and you’re in your 30’s message us to learn more and a chance to meet him. (In an exclusive way, and at no cost to you) or pass it on to your best girlfriends.
I have seen over this last month with the singles I speak to, it can be quite difficult as a parent to adjust to a new home and family dynamic after the kids have moved out or on to university living. They have shared feelings of loneliness and restlessness and it’s important to realize that along with this big change come many possibilities, especially if you are SINGLE. Rather than an end, this time in your life can be a wonderful new beginning.
It isn’t a bad thing; simply put its time for you to spread your wings.
Connecting with others who are looking for love in the same situation and those you may not have had time for in recent years. You can start with brushing up on your dating skills, get some new photos, create a great bio and put yourself out there to meeting others for fun, friendship, or romance interests that’s totally new to you.
It’s easy and just a matter of putting forth an intentional effort to “date”.

He was that guy that was on dating sites, afraid to mention
his kids in his profile because no one would wink at him, and always felt awful
about it. He adores his kids but dreaded
the moments that he dropped that bomb on the women he was chatting with. He’s also that Dad in Target, in the sports
section with his sons, and when he sees a gal walk by with a smile and while he
smiles back wondering if it’s him or his son she sees. Hopefully its both of them; I mean they are a
package deal. He finds his anxiety keeps
him from making such attempts, albiet wants to, and regrets it as they leave
For him he feels his reality is likely that she wouldn’t
want him or understand the wonderfully unique adventure that is his everyday
life. He’s a single Dad, so he must have
drama; at least that is what he is telling himself. But the truth is the single Dads we work with
are some of the most loving, compassionate and fun guys to date and they have
no energy for drama! They aren’t there to waste your time….remember that every
moment they spend with you is time away from their children and we all know how
5-month-olds become 5-year-olds in the blink of an eye.
Here’s a couple reasons why;
They aren’t needy; they get all the love and
affection they can from their kids. They
can offer you those things because they understand their importance and they
don’t fear vulnerability, emotional connection and romance. And
when they get to see you finally, he has so much to give.
The stigma that comes with baggage should-be
pushed aside. His baggage isn’t baggage,
but the badge of a man who has been there and done that. A man who doesn’t run
from responsibility, and isn’t afraid of the words “love, marriage and family.”
His badge is of a man who has kissed many boo
boos, built pillow forts, is a constant role model to his kids knowing that
life is filled with endless possibilities and that real love does exist! He is
ready to meet a beautiful person and a good influence on his kids to build his
Take a chance on a divorced Dad, and allow him to show you
what makes him so special. Allow him to
show you the man his kids love. In a
dating universe full of guys who may be up to no good, they are the ones who
want more than a one-night stand.
If you are single, in your thirties and looking for a great
guy with kids, contact me [email protected]
for a chance to meet him.

For those of us less fortunate enough not to be in a relationship, the coming of Christmas can present a challenge. Let’s be honest; whether you care about your single status or not listening to relatives probing about our dating life can be draining, as can finding a home for the mountain of small amusing gifts coming your way. For example, being in receipt of wall art or badass affirmations books and you immediately file it under a mental tab marked: Single at Christmas, again – sorted.
But there is a solution; And it’s simple –Give a gift of something to someone who needs it– Choose Love.
So, don’t shut out the idea of helping someone find love –give them a real present of love. This week, we have had several calls from people who realize that waiting patiently to let love find you does not have to be the case and this Christmas we are helping caring friends and family buy loved ones appropriate and indulgent matchmaking membership gifts, the thing that someone single actually needs; to go from single to taken!
Presents for single people truly in need; a solution to your Christmas shopping- It’s what we do.

Testimonial: “You sure know me. I can only imagine the demands in matching algorithms…… You must be the Einstein of Love.” He said smiling. That’s what one of our clients recently had to say.
Is there a formula for successful relationships? You bet! The five-to-one ratio of positive-to-negative emotions suggests there is and the difference in having found “the one” as apposed to “someone” can be:
You are so enamored at the beginning that you want to keep conversing forever
You find someone who meets 90% of your criteria (having defined this well up front and relating to what you have in common rather than having more positive “opposite” traits).
There is a magnetism after the first couple of dates…. coming from both head and heart and not merely lust, though the physical attraction is also there.
Once established well over months where it keeps existing—this magnetism blossoms to where you can’t live without the other person. Resist the desire for any next steps until 4 seasons have gone by, and you have experienced visitations with her/his friends and family, seen his/her reactions to a large variety of events such as changes in political climate, religious experiences, movies and intellectual pursuits, passions of many kinds, discussions on health, patterns of living, rural or urban style, future plans, desire for travel, views on children, volunteering, helping others—all topics you can bring up…and many more that give a broader perspective about the person. Satisfy your need to know these things to avoid big future controversies.
Matchmaker vs. Cupid: Which one do you choose when it comes to finding love? Would you rather get a visit from the messenger of love or a Matchmaker superhero who can save you from a dating disaster?

If she is a fan of the team, I don’t see why not – however normally I’d see it as a bad move, but all depends on how comfortable she is with it and if she’s excited to go then ……it’s a good move!
With FIRST DATES, there should be 3 components to it. You need to take some time and create a plan.
Dinner –not a good first date plan. If you decide 15 min in you have zero in common you are stuck for an hour or more and you’ve giving a message that you have carved the whole evening for someone, you hardly know. Its like having 2/3 of the date all upfront. So guys, here we go!
The first 1/3, quick easy drink in a bar,
and next 1/3 do something fun that is easy and risk free, and it also shows that she thinks that you’ve earned it. (if you are finding conversation awkward at a sporting event, trust me, it wouldn’t be any better at a dinner)
and last 1/3, this is reserved for dinner. It makes it easier to have known each other previously and are already comfortable around each other and you’ll always have a bailout conversation topic, because you can just revisit and talk about whatever you did on the first and second dates.
Even if she’s not a big sports fan, she’s sure to enjoy a laid-back evening or afternoon at a minor league ball game. Amateur teams tend to have more entertainment during the game, which will provide you with tons of conversation starters. Plus, the drinks and food won’t cost and arm and a leg which is especially good news if things don’t pan out.

FACT: A lone-parent is a man or woman who is single, separated, divorced, … Lone-mothers make up 13% of Canadian families, while lone-fathers make up 3%. which means that the odds are pretty good that at least some of them are looking for love.
If dating as a single person can be a messy combination of fun and frustrating, dating as a single mom poses its own unique challenges. We asked some of our brutally honest single mom clients to tell us the truth about what they want prospective dates to know before they try to hook up with them. From rules about sleepovers, and meeting the kids, they didn’t hold anything back!
“Anyone who wants to date me needs to know that he is always going to be my second, maybe third, priority. My kids come first, and my job is a close second since I have to support my kids. I want to be in a relationship, but not if it messes things up for my kids.” —
“I don’t care how romantic our date was, you are NOT getting invited home. I don’t have sex with someone who I’m not married or engaged to under the same roof as my kid. Period. I don’t want her to be hearing or seeing anything she shouldn’t.” –-
“My kid is pretty great, but you don’t get to meet him unless you are around for the long haul. If you ask to meet him and I say ‘no’, that means I’m not sure about you yet.” —
“If you are the type to get jealous that I’m still friendly with an ex, don’t waste your time with me. My ex is my kid’s dad and we’ll always be in contact, so you had better be able to handle that.” —
“My last boyfriend complained that I wasn’t spontaneous enough. I have a 2-year-old! I can’t run off for a long weekend trip at the drop of a hat.”
“I think the biggest difference between dating before I had a kid and dating now is that I have no patience for drama or game playing. I used to spend months wondering if someone was right for me and playing all the games. Now I just don’t have the time or energy for that. It is either working or not. If it isn’t working, I’m quicker to pull the plug now than I was before.” —
“Believe it or not, I’m not looking for a father for my kid. I’m looking for a partner for me. If we work, then we can talk about whether you’ll be a part of my kid’s life. He has a dad and it isn’t you.” –
“A guy who is going to date a single mom can’t be needy. Don’t expect to always have me answer every call or text. I’m juggling tons of stuff and trying to date too. I’m doing the best I can.” –
“Please be all the way divorced or out of your prior relationship before you call me, especially if you also have kids. I don’t need drama! Dating with kids involved is hard enough without having fresh divorce issues to deal with.” —
“I have a two-strike rule for last-minute cancellations. Getting a babysitter is work and expensive! I can’t handle flakes at this stage of my life. I already have too many plates spinning.” —
“This should be obvious, but don’t date me if you don’t like kids. Ideally, if this goes well, you’d be in my kid’s life on some level, so even if you think I’m great, don’t ask me out if you aren’t okay with the thought of sharing your life with a kid someday.” –
