As Valentine’s day approaches, our thoughts turn to love and romance and how we will celebrate this special occasion with our partner. That is, if you have a partner. Sadly, many people in Ireland are alone and have not found a life partner to share their love, life and dreams with. After a certain age, it is difficult to meet someone. Add to that how modern life seems to give people very little spare time, it is very hard for a single person to get the opportunity or the time to get out there and find a suitable partner.
So what about the internet? We have heard some success stories but equally, we have heard many stories of disastrous dates! Often the description on the internet is completely at odds with the true description. Often someone who seemed compatible on the website turns out to have nothing in common with you and so on. Remember also that there is always that risk of arranging to meet a stranger that you really know nothing about other than what they have written on their profile. All in all, this type of dating can be quite challenging.
Wouldn’t be nice if there was someone who could search for compatible partners, arrange for you to meet them and also check the credentials of both parties to ensure that they are genuine? A fairy Godmother? A mysterious witch doctor with match making skills? No, much simpler than that! There is a company in Ireland called “Two’s Company” who will search for appropriate partners, check their credentials and ensure that you are suitable for each other on many levels before introducing you.
Everybody deserves to find happiness with that special person and according to Jennifer Haskins of Two’s Company, applying the same determination to pursuing romantic happiness as you would into pursuing other life goals makes sense: “You wouldn’t employ a high level executive without ensuring their qualifications and personality are right for your business. You would interview them thoroughly and evaluate their qualities so that you can be sure you are investing in the right person. So why leave your love life to chance? That’s where we come in. Our skills lie in the accurate evaluation of the needs of each individual and matching those needs and expectations.”
Established in August 2009, both Jennifer Haskins and Bill Phelan not only talk the talk, they’ve walked the walk. Successful in their business dealings yet lacking a significant life partner, they individually explored various possibilities to meet new people such as online dating and dating agencies. In fact they were both on the books of a particular agency at the same time but were never introduced! They understand the pressures of business and the desire for a discrete service. There are no online details or photographs, complete privacy and confidentiality is an integral part of the service. Unlike internet or on-line dating their service is totally private and confidential. There are obvious benefits of using a dating agency. Firstly there is no loss of privacy, no time wasted on the wrong people, it is safe (all members are vetted) and you know what type of person you are meeting. Two’s Company have a thorough interviewing process, which enables them to match people with compatible partners of similar background, interests, values and character.
With members from 30 to 80 years of age, from all different walks of life….Doctors, Teachers, Nurses, Entrepreneurs, PA’s, Lawyers, etc. with a range of interests and hobbies. Two’s Company cater for professional unattached singles, separated or divorced widows and widowers..
Success comes to us at all different times in our lives and it’s the same with relationships. So don’t give up, keep trying new and different methods of finding love. You may not necessarily find the love of your life until you’re into your fifties or sixties, that’s wonderful, and worth waiting for.
There are many people who are unaware that a service like Two’s Company exists, and that with just a simple phone call they can take the first step to meeting a new life partner or companion. With Jennifer’s background in counseling, psychotherapy and coaching the matching process is second nature. As she says “it’s a very rewarding career, bringing people together and helping them to find partners and soul mates.”
Many people in their late 30’s and upwards have simply outgrown the club scene, with their immediate circle of friends paired off years ago, leaving them in a minority of one and with little prospect of meeting other singles unless they broaden their scope.
If you happen to be divorced, separated or widowed, where do you go to meet a partner?
Two’s Company match people according to their requirements, values, intellect, interests and social status. Single, separated, divorced or widowed, members are professional, educated, attractive, sincere and solvent. Two’s Company don’t use matchmaking computer programmes to match suitable candidates, they rely on good old fashioned common sense, a uniquely personal service, some psychology and a real desire to help people find that special person. People who use our service tend to be honest and up-front, “said Jennifer “ It’s about transparency- our clients are there because they really want to find a partner.”
Two’s Company are vigilant in keeping the ratios healthy and even has a waiting list of potential clients as the ratios flux. She explains: “Before we opened our door, we researched the whole industry thoroughly to make sure that we offered the finest service.
“People spend so much money on holidays and material things, which only bring short term happiness, whereas a good relationship is a much better investment and can last a lifetime.”
“With the downturn, less time is spent socialising and networking, so there is now a greater focus on the simpler things in life, like watching a movie or taking a walk,”, but the simpler things in life are more enjoyable if you have a significant other.”
Not every date will produce fireworks and chemistry but many have found lasting friendship and companionship, often meeting for lunch, concerts or sporting events.
The joy that romantic love creates is mankind’s greatest experience, so don’t leave love to chance in 2011. The past is gone but future happiness is still in your power.
