Michele the Matchmaker, Denver’s premiere Matchmaker, says there is some common advice for both sexes. Take note when you first start dating someone. Within the first month they will “tell” you exactly who they are. Your job is to pay attention and if you see signs of insincerety, untruths, distortions, abuse of any kind DO NOT JUST WRITE IT OFF.
Most times people get into relationships with mates who have issues because they overlooked or ignored the early signs and signals. Now they are in deep and perhaps the problem has escalated making it more difficult to get out.
Especially if you see people who are unkind to children, animals or the elderly or who seem “too good to be true”, end it immediately and don’t look back. It’s best to walk away in the beginning before the ties become too deep or there are children involved.
As the elder in Denver’s Matchmaking Community Michele the Matchmaker has seen alot as well as has been trained both in rape crisis counseling (at RAAP) and battered women’s issues (through Safehouse for Battered Women).
