f you’re a Midwest single in Des Moines looking for some ideas to wow your date, our exclusive Midwest matchmakers are here to help. Below, our Des Moines Cupids have listed some of our favorite locales that will almost guarantee your first date will become a second:
If you’re a documentary junkie like me, you may want to watch a new HBO documentary that the Cupids at our Des Moines Midwest Matchmaking office found riveting. “Swiped: Hooking Up in the Digital Age” gave us even more validation that Midwest dating companies like ours exist specifically because of the issues discussed throughout the film.
In our work as professional matchmakers, we can definitely understand the first date jitters. All the work that has brought you to this point – coaching you through the many ways you can best represent who you are and what’s important to you – has led to this moment.
As much as we’d like, as dating matchmakers, we can’t tag along on the first date and help you keep the conversation flowing (and you really wouldn’t want us to!).
It’s hard to believe we are in the second half of the year already and that signals the beginning of holiday celebrations, seasonal gatherings and places where, frankly, you’d rather not show up as your best friend and his date’s third wheel or even worse, alone.
Now is the time to let Midwest Matchmaking provide the relationship advice and online dating support that could lead to you enjoying the holiday events with a partner by your side.
Advice. There seems to be no lack of it especially if you are a Des Moines single and haven’t yet found “the one.” As professional relationship coaches, we’ve helped many local singles sort through the mountains of dating advice that comes from well-meaning aunts, best buddies, work friends and online sources. While everyone is trying to help, sometimes this kind of dating advice can actually do more harm than good.
There are plenty of things that qualify as “deal breakers” when you are looking for the right life partner. Believe us when we say that we’ve seen quite a few of these during our combined years of professional matchmaking. Your dates mother still buys all of their clothes (and they include plaid knickers). Your date humiliates or shames you for your physique. Heaven forbid, he or she is still married!
As professional matchmakers, we feel rejection, when truly approached with an open mind, can benefit all parties. The key is all about perspective, and at Midwest Matchmaking, we coach our clients to always look at the positive side of rejection and here’s why;
Rejection firmly closes one door and opens the gates to other opportunities that are more aligned with what is desired.
If you are a local single and new to these parts – what we like to call the center of the universe and the best place in the world to live (the real Midwest states of Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, and Missouri), you should know that your dating experiences are about to undergo a radical change – for the better!
Jumping back into the dating scene as a newly divorced single again can feel like free falling head first over a gorge. Not only have dating styles perhaps changed since you last put yourself out there, but so has the technology, certain etiquette related to that technology, and expectations. Not to mention the overwhelm that dating apps cause, it’s no wonder divorcees feel so lost, and have no clue where or how to start again.
Our Midwest Matchmakers worked together to contribute a few ideas each to compile for our clients to aid in their success on dates.
