No Limits!

Posted on: February 12th, 2013 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle 8 Comments

Here’s a piece of advice for those who are single and dating: been single and dating, or have just become single and want to start dating when it’s the right time.

During your process of dating, there is not a limit of how many people you are dating or should be dating. There is no commitment until you both have decided you want to be in a relationship! You should be having fun and dating more than one person. Some dates may just be for fun while other possible dates may be for looking at a possible mate.

If there has been no limit set for you and a possible partner, then know that you are not limited and feel free to date whoever you want. Dating should be a fun time and a period in your life where you explore different situations and network with people! There is no rush to get into a relationship with the first man or woman you end up dating. However, when you and a man or woman have successfully finished the “getting-to-know-each-other” period, set that limit if you both only want to date one another.

Get out there! Dive in head-first. Keep an open mind and push yourself! Have fun and enjoy your carefree dating phase!

Love at first sight?

Posted on: February 9th, 2013 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle

It’s a question that comes up often. So do you believe in love at first sight? Personally, I know some people do not believe in love at first sight, but rather attraction at first sight. There are people who do not believe in fate and destiny, there are those who acknowledge it but do not believe strongly in it and there are those who believe in it passionately.

Personally, I am one who does believe in fate, destiny and love at first sight. I’m not headstrong on it but I do believe that there is someone for everybody and that everything happens for a reason. Attraction at first sight? Definitely! Love at first sight? That’s more complicated because I feel like “love at first sight” stems from attraction at first sight.

This article that I found is called “Love at first sight, or in half a second”*. It basically talks about how quickly a person is pulled towards physical attractiveness when looking for a potential mate or when being protective of their current mate from other rivals. The article speaks about how the team found out that people are drawn towards attractive faces within the very first half-second of seeing them before even thinking about a possible mate or rival. They accomplished this finding by testing some university students, showing them pictures of either extremely attractive people or average-looking people for one second. By their reaction time, the team was able to discover that half a second is really all that is needed to decide if someone is attractive to the person or not. There are advantages and disadvantages of the study but if you want to read more, I have linked the article below!

The article definitely captured my attention since there is that popular question of if one believes in love at first sight. There’s so many different responses and explanations for their answers because there is definitely not just one correct answer.

So what do you think? Do you believe in love in first sight?
