Are You Ready for a Relationship?

Are you ready for a relationship

As the Scottsdale matchmaker, I am connecting single men and women, helping them find lasting, meaningful relationships. I interview singles before carefully matching them. Most  people express their deep desire for a relationship. But before I ever match a person, the first thing I determine is whether or not they are ready for a relationship. Some people think they’re ready when they’re not. Others wonder if they have what it takes when I have no doubt they’ll make an excellent romantic partner for the right person.   Here are five ways to know if you are ready for a relationship:

Are You Ready for a Relationship?

  1. You’re happy with you  I firmly believe that the most important relationship you have is with yourself. If you can’t be happy with you, you won’t be happy with someone else. Learning to feel loved and worthy of love apart from a romantic relationship makes you an excellent partner! I look for men and women who love themselves, flaws and all. (why men like confident women) This kind of self-confidence isn’t rooted in pride, but instead is rooted in an accurate view of your own value and worth. It’s one of the most attractive qualities you can have!
  2. You don’t need anyone to complete you. A healthy relationship is two whole people coming together. If you think of a relationship as two halves completing each other, you’ve got the wrong idea! That’s a sure recipe for dysfunction. Too often, relationships become a distraction people use to avoid being alone. When I meet a man or woman who is truly and genuinely OK being single, I know they’re ready for a relationship because that contentment tells me they truly know and love who they are as an individual.
  3. You’re not carrying baggage. There’s nothing worse than emotional baggage from past relationships that are brought into a new one. Emotional scars from previous relationships or past life experiences will undermine every future relationship you have. It’s tempting to want to look to another person to “save” you from yourself or “heal” you from your wounds. Truthfully, you are the only person capable of resolving those issues in your heart. Emotionally healthy people are ready for a relationship because they have taken the time to deal with their luggage. They keep short accounts and regularly do what they need to in order to care for their inner self.
  4. You’re relationally flexible. Having a long list of relationship “requirements” is a sure sign to me a person is insecure and wants to control their significant other. I know a woman is ready for a relationship when she throws out her mile-long list, or when a man is willing to let her quirks slide without making a big deal over them. None of us are perfect, and there will always be something about your partner you wish was different. A relationally mature person chooses to love and accept their significant other as they are without having unreasonable expectations.
  5. You’re willing to make a change and take a risk. As humans, we tend to get stuck in ruts. We do this in our relationships. Some women repeatedly find themselves in unhealthy relationships with the wrong kind of guy. Some men are so used to their freedoms as a bachelor they find it hard to compromise and change for a relationship. When someone makes it clear they’re willing to make changes in their life, I know that individual is ready for a relationship. Change is always risky, which makes it scary, but finding your soul mate requires a willingness to accept both change and risk.

We are all a work in progress and will always have some areas to work on. Ask yourself these questions to find out “are you ready for a relationship?” If youcan say these five statements truthfully, you are ready for a relationship!

How to Date a Millionaire Man

how to date millionairesYou Want to Know How to Date a Millionaire Man?

There is an art to successfully dating a millionaire man. You have to know where to meet a millionaire and how to get him interested in dating you. Once you’re in a relationship with a millionaire man, there are some things you can do to build a relationship that ultimately leads to marriage. Wealthy men lead a specific kind of lifestyle, and it’s important you integrate yourself seamlessly into that lifestyle. To do so, your job is learning how to look the part, act the part, and be the part. As a Scottsdale Matchmaker I deal with successful men looking for their life partners. But as a Phoenix Dating Coach, I know these dating pointers can help you date all men – not just the wealthy men! Let’s start with a few basic rules on how to date a millionaire man.

Look the Part

We’d all like to be loved simply for who we are, and that remains the end goal of your relationship. But to get things off the ground, you’ve got to look the part. Men in general are very visual, and wealthy men often have even higher standards for beauty than average men. A millionaire man has the prerogative to be very choosy about the kind of woman he dates. To pass the test, here are a few simple rules:

  • Live a fit, active, and healthy lifestyle.
  • Choose clothes that are elegant, classy, and understated, not too flashy. Your ultimate goal is to be his wife, not a mistress.
  • Follow the rule of thumb to accentuate one feature at a time, not all of them at once. For example, if your eye makeup is dramatic, don’t wear bright red lipstick.
  • When it comes to designer accessories, it’s better to invest in one genuine piece than to own multiple counterfeits – even if they’re “good” fakes.

Act the Part

In addition to looking the part, it’s important for you to know how to act the part. This isn’t about putting up a fake front, but about learning the cultural behaviors acceptable among the wealthy. We’ve looked at specific ways you can make a millionaire man interested in other articles [link to How to Make a Millionaire Interested article], but here are some basic you can start with:

  • Brush up on your manners. If you aren’t familiar with proper etiquette, there are plenty of books you can rent and articles you can look up.
  • Know what not to talk about – including past relationships, personal woes, and money.
  • Know what you should talk about. Be knowledgeable about the things that matter in his life such as business, sports and hobbies he’s devoted to, and politics. Take note, though, to save these meatier topics of conversation for later in your relationship, not the first date!

Be the Part

With all this talk about practical, appearance-based things you can do to learn how to date a millionaire man, it can be easy to lose sight of what’s ultimately most important: who you are as a person. Just because a man is rich doesn’t mean he won’t care about your personality. It’s basic, but at the end of the day, who you are is what will spark the chemistry that leads to a life-long love relationship. Here are some traits you can work on cultivating:

  • Be kind. There isn’t a man alive who enjoys dating a diva.
  • Be classy. No matter how wealthy you are there is never an excuse to be rude.
  • Be caring. Listen to him and be interested in his life.
  • Be approachable. Let him see that gorgeous smile of yours!
  • Be positive. There’s enough negativity in the world – bring laughter, fun, and light-heartedness to the relationship.

I had a millionaire client who met a woman working in an upscale store. She was unhappy in her career and constantly complained to him. After a few months of her complaining, he realized he did not want this negative person in his life and ended their relationship. We often have unpleasant circumstances in our lives. Continually complaining does not bring the other person closer but drives him away.
Learning how to do these three things will give you a solid start in your relationship dating a millionaire man. Once you’ve laid that foundation, you’ll be set up for success to get down to the business of getting to know each other and the journey of discovering your soul mate.
