How It All Began
In 1989 I was working as a legal secretary suffering with severe insomnia. I found that working specific hours would tend to exacerbate this issue. So one night I was watching a movie called “Crossing Delancy” where a very obnoxious, pushy matchmaker played a minor role. I looked at her and thought, I could do a much better job and not be so pushy. I’ve done this many times in the past for free quite successfully. Thus a professional Matchmaker was born. Well, a new Matchmaker was hatched, after 25 years in the business I AM a professional Matchmaker! I have been lovingly known a Michele the Matchmaker since 1989. Nothing like on-the-job training, it’s the best way to learn. Some things cannot be taught in a book or in school.
My thinking was there is no downside to this venture. Certainly everyone who gets married through my service will be happy and appreciative. And perhaps I’ll meet my own mate, perhaps this is fate. I’ve learned a lot over these many years! Denver has an impressive singles community made up of intelligent, athletic, mature and open hearted residents. More than most cities!
Some of the things I’ve learned through this career are being a better listener; that just because someone has advanced degrees doesn’t mean they are intelligent; that many people without degrees can still make lots of money; that the best looking people are not necessarily the easiest to match; that so many marriages end after the 20 and even 30 year marks. But most important of all…that there are so many mature singles who, regardless of their losses or what they’ve been through, still have such an open heart and positive outlook on love.
