                 6. Reconnect by Disconnecting. Instead of spending time
        alone in front of the television or on social media, make a date
        with someone you would like to get to know better--or make an
        appointment with me. The point is: If you don’t know anyone
        to connect with, we can help make an introduction for you. It is
        not what you know, it is who you know. It’s simple. It’s math.
        It’s smart. Life is all about connecting.

        but I have to say that the clientele we are meeting this year and last
        year is different and even more impressive than in prior years. With
        the online dating nose dive gone rampant in Florida, quality singles
        are more likely to hire a verified matchmaker (with a physical local
        office). I’ve also noticed that people that would usually not commit are
        committing. Exclusivity is on the rise. Pairing Off is trending. These   Meet Kristy...  Meet David...  Meet Jason...
