Power Couples… You inspire me.

Pinky: “Gee, Brain, what do you want to do tonight”?

Brain: “The same thing we do every night, Pinky – try to take over the world”!pinky


For those that remember, without “pinky” there was no “brain” and vise versa.


The words “Power couples” might be a catch-phrase that sets the tone of the relationship, but it is also something that is proving to be true. Power couples do things differently, but what makes a power couple? Let’s look at some examples of those who have been wildly successful individually, as well as seem to have an unbreakable relationship bond.


Barack and Michelle Obama, Bill and Hillary Clinton, Kelly Rippa and Michael Consuelos, Will and Jada Smith and
Duane and Tisha Campbell-Martin.


Not everyone is this successful and wealthy, but then being a power couple is not only reserved for the mega wealthy and successful. Just about every crowd features at least one of these couples.


keyThey are awesome together, and awesome people as individuals too.


keyThey support each other completely and don’t depend on anyone for their sense of self-worth.


keyThis couple has that something special that people can see immediately, and it lights up the world.



                         keyLets take a look at some more of these essential keys.key




keyThey are optimistic and know they have value.


key Each of them makes up for what the other might lack, and they are key confidantes.


keyThey work hard to improve their own individuality as well as, as a pair.


key Working constantly and confidently to become better connected.


keyThey work harder to deserve one another.


keyA couple such as this supports each-others pursuits and ambitions completely, and are equal partners.


keyBoth of them value equality, and will do their fair share inside the home, as well as outside the home.




For example Bill and Hillary Clinton. They support each of the others political ideologies and careers. She supported his aspirations when he was President, and he championed for her and supported her 2016 presidential run.


keyPower couples make time for themselves, and time to be together. They often exercise together and enjoy the same sort of sporting activities, and can spend time on their own passion projects.


keyWhen their relationship is no longer working they stick together to work it out, or know when to call it quits, and are private about it.


keyEvolving separate careers as well as a family together is the kind of thing that successful power couples do.

keyThey are both already complete when they meet, equal in attitude, style, and often finance and career.

keyThey come from every neck of the woods from the trailer park to the highest echelon of super stardom, to overcome the odds together by simply being all that they can both possibly be.

keyThey do not sacrifice career ambitions, they compromise, and don’t need to validate one another as being worthy.

keyThese are not glamorous appendages to a successful or powerful spouse, they are equal in everything. Will Smith said it best “If you are absent during my struggle, don’t expect to be present during my success”. This is kind of commitment is for better or for worse.



When we focus on fixing what’s wrong, we focus on the problem.


“Whatever we focus our attention on will inevitably grow.”


Instead, work together to focus on solutions, strengths and goals.


Enjoy the Journey …

Life Partners

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



Most people that you know want a life partner but how will they know when they have found that special someone?


Do you feel being in love automatically presents you with your life partner  or is it a stepping stool to work on the idea? There is nothing wrong with wanting a successful relationship, having certain preferences or dealing with the likes and dislike of a relationship but by finding a life partner can bring a balance and compliments within it.


Is it the feeling, emotions and rush of excitement when you’re around them or the emptiness, loneliness and want, when you’re not around them. As most emotions are, love itself can easily be one of the most confusing concepts to deal with because there are so many variables. Falling in love or out of love is easier than one would think but finding someone to be with for the rest of your life takes more time than most think. There’s a difference between loving someone, being in love with them and choosing to spend the rest of your life with them because even marriages at times  are broken before death do you part.


Though fairy tales and love stories on the movie screens look and sound nice. there is no complete truth in how “true love” is found. True love has its ups and downs but within those challenges people are able to find what they are looking for in their significant others. Within the process of finding a life partner one should experience the journey to do so because it will not just appear in front of your eyes or drop from the sky.





The Games We Play, The Plan We Make

dating for fun


Dating can be one of the most fulfilling moments toward building a relationship or it can be a constant game full of confusion, frustration and uncertainty.  Dating has its balance but at times it is hard to find a complete consensus within the different phases of the act.  Among the idea of dating lies the question of why do people date?


In most cases people date with the high expectancy of pursuing a relationship  but unfortunately there are some who date without a purpose and treat the matter as a game. Treating this action like a game can not only cause emotional damage, confusion and dismay but it leaves false pretenses in the mindset of a person. This is why some people refuse to date and others tend to date even more because they want to be sure of what they are getting themselves involved in. If you are a person looking for a serious relationship or commitment, dating a little more is not out of the norm because not everyone is in the dating pool for that reason. For those who seek the fun and enjoy the rush of dating, they run or flee from the idea of serious commitments or moving to the next level since they enjoy the idea of being single and able to mingle.



The question of dating for the progression of the future has become a debating topic because of the different aspects/approaches toward dating.



Just as other opposites, dating seriously vs. dating for fun has the pros and cons for each, which end of the line do you fall on?






Progress: Moving to the Next Step

Posted on: June 8th, 2013 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle



Marriage is a serious vow and commitment made by a couple to spend the rest of their lives together. By taking part in this journey called marriage, the lives of the people around you can change just as much as your own.  For some, the opinion about your significant other can hold serious weight.

What happens when the person you love and will be married to, is not to the liking of your close family members and friends? Do you stop loving them or do you move forward? A lot of people have difficulties in their marriage because different opinions from outside sources leak and intrude the establishment of the couple. This usually stems from not being able to let go of those who are close to you and holding in what they want or feel is best for you at a higher level than what you want for yourself. By partaking in this chain of reactions, it can be very difficult for you to move forward with the woman or man of your dreams. When you do not take in the idea of what you want and what you seek, you will never be happy.

For several people, family is such an important part in life because it is filled with your loved ones and those you really care for. Without family, many believe you don’t have anything, especially because it signifies so much; support system, love, laughter, strong wiliness, structure and much more. So the opinion of those close to you (family or friends) tends to matter more than your own.

There is nothing wrong with evaluating the opinion of others in your life especially when they are seeking your best interest but be cognizant and don’t forget what makes you happy. Balance is the strong objective when combining marriage and those who love you (family and friends.) To love both parties at an equal level may be challenging times but it is the best way to keep great relationships with those who mean the most to you.



No Limits!

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!


What are some turn-offs and turn-ons of pursuing a possible relationship with someone?

First of all, FeaturedDate would like to extend our heartfelt condolences to the victimes and families of the Sandy Hook Elementary shooting in Newtown, Connecticut. Our prayers go out to each and every person who has been affected by the tragedy.

I know some people are picky about what type of person they want to get involved with. There’s someone looking for a quick, no strings attached hookup. There’s another person who wants to have a boyfriend but not even trying to look ahead to the distant future. Then there’s another person who wants to find true love and can’t wait to start thinking about the future, what house to live in, and how many children to have.

What are some turn-ons and turn-offs that you have from approaching somebody? Looking online, some top female turn-ons* top female turn-ons are: 1) a man who can make you feel like a woman (respect is a big turn-on- a man who can respect a woman and appreciate her for who she is), 2) a man who is not afraid to take charge (mental, physical or spiritual strength), 3) a successful man (needs to be able to support himself and his family; ambitious, passionate and confident!), 4) a man with a brain, a sense of humor and can hold a conversation (smart, funny, intellectually challenging!). Some top male turn-ons** are: 1) women who leave something to the imagination (women who maintain a certain degree class are more attractive than women who bare and share everything), 2) has a strong sense of self-esteem (women who can think for herself, believe in herself and has the confidence to speak her mind), 3) loves her body (confidence! Men love a woman who appreciate what she has and isn’t afraid to show it. Embrace your body!), and 4) independent women (self-sufficient, can have fun, not needy. You can live your own life and share with your man!).

Be confident, be smart. Be able to laugh at yourself! Love yourself because you are who you are meant to be. Remember that you do not need someone to feel completed, but you want someone who will love you for who you are and only make life better.
