Texting and Communication Do’s and Don’ts!

Many of us have a love/hate relationship with texting.  It is efficient and let’s face it, no one even listens to voicemails anymore.  But these text messages can be over-analyzed, scrutinized, and sarcasm/tone/humor can be so hard to read/deliver. I have seen too many would-be great relationships not even pass go because of miscommunication and mixed messages.  So, in this modern dating environment, I am not only a matchmaker nyc, a millionaire matchmaker, but also a professional dating coach, text interpreter, text content producer, and emoji decoder.  Matchmaking services are so important in today’s dating world; texting, dm’ing, whatsapp’ing and digital communications are not going away!  We all need to evolve, adapt, and embrace technology in most aspects of our...

Good Topics/Questions to ask on a First Date

What to talk about: Keep it light-not too heavy.  Light-hearted and fun.  Establish a connection. Go in prepared with somewhat of a plan, but do not overthink it either Do not worry if there are some pauses or quiet…you do not have to fill every minute with chatter and remember to listen to the other person: Where are you from? Born and where did you grow up?  Where do you call home? Go-to drink—alcoholic or not…coffee person? Starbucks, Duncan donuts or neither?  How do you like your coffee? Admit to being nervous… Perfect day? Favorite place to travel you are dying to go when Covid over. Favorite person to spend time with… Ask about family and where family lives/etc....

My hope for you is that the summer of 2019 was exceptional. The title of this blog is momentum.  Many of my clients know my thoughts on momentum...if it is lacking or slows, it can be a relationship killer and ironically, the slowdown of momentum will rapidly cause the relationship to fall apart.  Similarly, the lack of momentum in your social life as we exit the summer is concerning to me--my concern is that people will not continue to enjoy active social lives because the days are going to get shorter and its going to get colder...does not apply to warmer climes, but every geographical environment has different dating dynamics.  In the past several years, I have heard some variation of the...

Brooke’s Latest from The Huffington Post: “The Right Side”

It is Oscar season again, which means Hollywood has saved its more cerebral films for release.  I do not know what the cerebral film means exactly, except that historically Marvel comic movies tend not to be in the conversation.  That aside, Tom Ford, notably a fashion icon turned movie director, has released Nocturnal Animals, a film which has now become a part of the award conversation. Recently, I watched an interview with Ford, who is easy on the eyes.  He described that he only liked to be photographed or interviewed on his good side.  This got me thinking that it is near impossible to control one's good side on social media.  Sure, you can post a portrait or photograph for which...

Brooke’s Latest from The Huffington Post: “The Virtual Love Affair…”

At dawn, you quietly retreat to another room.  You can hardly control this impulse. At breakfast, you throw your inhibitions to the wind as you stare into the abyss of what is quietly and slowly eating away at your commitment to a newfound relationship. This love affair of yours is the by-product of Harvard minds.  Whether it was started by two athletic twins or the slightly awkward guy who wears the gray t-shirts, Facebook has become a central part of the culture. Facebook is entertaining and informative. The unintended or intended consequences of its use is that it can be a habit-forming platform and can potentially damage relationships or prevent someone from entering into one. There is no surgeon general warning...

Brooke’s latest from The Huffington Post: “The ELEPHANT in the room…”

You are sitting at the restaurant.  You remember the importance of eye contact.  You are on a first date and want to make a strong impression.  Suddenly, you cannot help but stare into her blue eyes.  They are remarkable.  So too is the bright, long red ties the waitstaff are wearing. Between her blue eyes and these red ties, you find yourself stuck deep in thought.  Blue and red.  Red and blue. For years, you have avoided political discussions in the workplace.  You have hid your views from clients, patients or coworkers.  Yet, somewhere between her blue eyes and the long red tie of the waitress reciting the evening specials, how can you avoid discussing this presidential election? If it...
