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 …

True Love Does Prevail

Posted on: January 5th, 2013 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle

old coupleDo you sometimes see older couples walking around somewhere you may be? I think it is adorable because it is showing that true love does prevail in some cases. Some memorable moments have been when I see the gentleman helping his wife across the street or holding hands while walking to their car. It makes me believe in love. Do you feel the same way? It makes my heart warm seeing this picture.

I have seen other pictures or gifs on the Internet where one person of the relationship is sitting somewhere alone with a description going along the lines with “this couple celebrated their anniversary at this place for 20 years and this is the first time he’s come here without her”… it pulls my heartstrings!

However, when I do see some old couples holding hands or helping each other go somewhere, etc. in the mall or the grocery store, it makes me smile. It makes me wish for a relationship where I hope I find “the one” that I can have a long relationship with until we are both old with gray hair! Searching for the perfect love may be a long and arduous journey for some people, but I think it is worth it as long as you find the one for you. :)

Love quotes discussed, #2

Posted on: December 26th, 2012 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle

“Love is a temporary madness. It erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. And when it subsides you have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should never part. Because this is what love is. Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion.” – Louis de Bernieres, “Captain Corelli’s Mandolin”

I think this is a beautiful quote. Do you think that this is true- that this is what love is? It takes a hold of you to never let go. It’s the madness that you love and hate at the same time that slowly takes over you but you can’t and don’t want to stop it.

I love the part where it tells you that “you have to make a decision”. You have to decide if “your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should never part”. I find this so true and it speaks to me because you really do have to make a decision if you should let yourself go and fall completely. I feel like you shouldn’t feel afraid to let your guard down and let that special someone in. You may be scarred with previous relationship problems but this does not mean that you will be hurt the next time someone new comes along. They may just be the one.

Even though I think that love actually is “breathlessness… excitement… not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion”, it is not only that. It really involves looking deep into your soul and letting yourself go. Because you’re worth it!

Meeting the parents!

Posted on: December 22nd, 2012 by Executive Matchmaker Romella Battle

Was it horrifying? Was it easy? For those who have met your significant other’s parents, let us know!

From my personal experience, my family already knew one of my ex-boyfriend’s parents because we had been family friends. So check “meeting his parents” off that list! However, there was another ex-boyfriend when it was awkward meeting his parents… the “being in his house alone not doing anything but bumping into them” kind of awkward. The most recent ex-boyfriend I’ve had though, I met his parents but it wasn’t very planned out. We were coming back from an outing with friends and decided to stop by his house so he could pick something up. I was a bit nervous and worried but his parents were so nice and welcoming. It was easy to be around them and not awkward at all. They really made an effort to make me feel at ease and I really appreciated that. I honestly will probably send them a Christmas card thanking them for everything they did for me in the time period when I was still with their son, haha. They were that welcoming!

Tips and tricks from my experience:
1) be nice
2) compliment their home/son or daughter whom you are dating
3) be polite
4) engage in conversation
5) be yourself!

Good luck if any of you are meeting your mate’s parents anytime soon! Does anyone else have any tips or tricks of their own?
