• We both knew we had to do something different to find each other. Enter Bespoke! Carol intuitively knew that we would at least be friends and, six months later, we are so much more. Luck plays a role in finding "the one," and we are both grateful for Carol's intuition and the entire team's kindness, professionalism and genuine sincerity. • I have always been the type of woman who believed in fate and if it was meant to be it would happen.
After my 35th birthday and some insane bar hopping I decided I was getting too old for this and it was time to take matters into my own hands. After all if I wanted something to happen it was time to make it happen…. Diane • Matchmaker, matchmaker, make me a match…who ever thought I would turn to an Executive Matchmaker for help. The last blind date I went on sitting in a restaurant waiting over 45 minutes for him to stand me up I knew it was time to do something different.
I did my research and sure enough Bespoke was the route I knew I wanted to take... Kevin • I want to thank you and your dedicated team for finding me my partner. We have been together for 8 months and she completes me in every way. My sincere thanks, Julie • I am a 48-year old executive who had done my share of dating and felt I knew all the eligible men available.
I used the internet and was surprised at what I met and it was not for me. I was not a bar guy and certainly was not looking for a casual relationship. I chose to join Bespoke and am very happy to say 14 months later I am happily engaged to my partner. I want to thank all of you from the bottom of my heart! Best, Jim • Yes; I am a hopeless romantic but: no I did not expect this to happen. It was as if we had known each other for years. The conversation flowed easily and he even laughed at my jokes.
Six months later he is still laughing at my jokes and we have fallen head over heels in love. I want to thank your entire team, you were truly amazing and without your help Greg and I would have never met. Warren • The interview with the consultant was wonderful.
I don’t think I have ever opened up quite so easily. It was in a comfortable atmosphere and I found myself opening up with ease. I have just become a new client of Bespoke and I am quite excited about the process. Let’s see where it goes. Eliot • Hello Carol, I hope you are having a great summer. I would like to say that you were absolutely right about Marc.
Outstanding person and unique in many ways. You were also right that he gave me a run for my money in a very positive way. We connected on several aspects... LAMINE • Thanks for reaching out. I am keeping busy. Jon and I are doing well, continuing to date and enjoying one another’s company. I am copying Carol to tell her ‘Thanks’ for suggesting... Enjoy the balance of your week and the weekend!
JOHN • Bryan writing. I though you might like to know that Wayne and I are still together, over a year after our initial introduction. We are having a great time together! Thanks for a job well done! Photo attached from our recent cruise to Mexico. We’re going on another in October – exciting! BRYAN • Just a quick email to let you know about my experience with your service.
From the beginning, I have felt very comfortable and well taken care of. Carol made me feel very welcome, and I appreciate that she took the time to really get to know me...
CHRIS • Hi Carol, Enjoyed our conversation. What a flurry of fun! Looking forward to great things happening. Attached please find some photos. Have a great rest of the weekend. Hope you get to be out and about a little bit! BRUCE • So, good news, me and Kris have hit it off. We are going to date one another and see where it takes us.
She is so kind, thoughtful, generous and easy to talk to, plus we both have a mutual attraction for one another. Thank you so much for your connection and for making Bespoke the real deal. On the other side. I think I have one more match left? But I hope I don’t have to use it. LISA • Hi Carol, so great to hear from you!!! I will email on Sunday about an appropriate time to talk on Monday. When weather permits very often I am flying at 7 so I will let her know.
I know how busy you are but I hope you stay in touch because I feel you looked in my eyes ... NADINE • As a busy professional, I found it challenging to meet, let alone date like-minded women. On-line dating truly fell short in regards to meeting a genuine person that I could connect with on various levels.
Meeting my now wife was not luck at all, it was trusting a matchmaking service that took the time to know... WENDY Dear Carol, I am a beautiful, intelligent woman who has a great career, an amazing home and really I am blessed with a wonderful life. The only thing that holds me back is I suffer from being “shy”. When a woman I am attracted to makes eye contact I tend to look away or walk in the other direction when I am being approached. Every time I am somewhere that I see someone I am attracted to I never seem to be able to get up the courage to approach her.
Do you have any tips or pointers you can suggest to help me get over this? Sincerely, Shy Dear Shy, Understanding that you are shy and wanting to work on it is the first step in gaining the confidence to get past this. As you mentioned you are a beautiful, woman who is confident and comfortable in every other aspect of your life and just struggles with getting past the anxiety of that first date.
When you decide to approach someone do it with the same ease and confidence you would approach a potential business acquaintance. When you approach someone don’t look at it as they are going to evaluate you to see if you measure up but; look at it as you are evaluating them to see if they measure up to your requirements.
