Most singles love January – they think it’s a time for a new beginning, and to refresh and reset their love lives. Yet, some people like May, when the first signs of summer start and everything feels easy again.
For Matchmakers its February. It’s always been a fabulous month for us and the month where singles make new things happen. As a Matchmaker , I’ve been writing blogs about how January is a great time to assess your situation, review you love plans, and kick start the year dating in a positive way. But for those of you who know me you’ll know that I’m also very firm about one thing: If you don’t get to something in January, that’s no reason to give up. That’s why I look at January as a warmup and February as the time to truly make things happen.
On a personal note, February has been something of a lucky month for me–20 years ago, in February 2002, I was on a flight from Toronto to Vancouver. Making a big, life-changing decision to leave my corporate job, picked up my life and moved across the country to start a business in Matchmaking. I was ready to move on and move forward. I couldn’t wait to hop off the plane and start strategizing.
Fast forward to February 2022, my mission hasn’t changed- knowing everyone wants love but not everyone can easily find it. That mission has gotten me out of bed for the last 20 years.
I truly believe, when you are clear about what you want and why you want it, it becomes much easier to keep going and to stay focused, even if it’s taking longer than expected.
