I’ve been getting a lot of clients asking me lately “Amy how did you know we would hit it off like this?” That to me is really one of the kindest compliments I could ever ask for!
It’s hard to say exactly how a great match actually works. Yes, there is a science but so much of what I do is art….it is that 6th sense…a gut instinct and pure intuition. Remember I take huge pride in personally getting to know every member in Linx. I take copious notes, I try not to miss a beat, and I really pick up on the little things often in our client meetings & new client interviews that they might not even know themselves… in other words, the nuances. THAT is one of the major aspects of what makes joining Linx so special compared to the slew of online choices.
With that being said, matchmaking is a leap of faith. It is about having my new client put trust in me that I have carefully listened to who they are and what they seek in a match and on the flip side, having trust in my client that he or she will best represent my network when dating in the real world. I wish I could be a puppeteer orchestrating the perfect outcome for my clients. Unfortunately, I am not a magician, nor can I promise marriage.
One of the downfalls to this business is when clients put tremendous pressure on themselves to find someone. The bar can be so high but the clock begins to tick at such an accelerated speed that everyone senses the intensity prevailing. That can lead to disappointment and expectations that are simply not realistic. On the back end, behind the scenes, we can feel a sense of a ship that is slowly sinking….like a Titanic feeling where the air starts to run out, weights are tightened on our ankles, and slowly…slowly…we submerge into the depths of the ocean. Sorry for the visual.
On a happy note, what I can promise for a client is access to a narrowly tailored pool of individuals whom that person wouldn’t have the chance to meet otherwise, thus increasing the chances of finding love. There isn’t an exact science to this process and, for some overly analytical and risk averse types, it becomes impossible to offer them any explanation that will be satisfying. At the end of the day, how do you make sense of all of that?
