LUMA is a Luxury Matchmaking service for Dallas, Houston, San Antonio and Austin, TX single Executives and professionals.We help busy professionals meet, attract and keep a quality match.I opened for business in May 2008, and I started getting great word-of-mouth referrals from people who knew singles who needed my help.A lot of my clients are busy professionals who don’t want to do the bar scene and don’t want their information blasted on a national Web site.And you need to know what you really like to do and what drives you. It takes a certain skill set to be in a relationship, and I help a person learn how to be completely aware of who their partner is and how to not ignore the red flags.A big mistake people make is that they let chemistry take hold.It’s also an old wives’ tale that opposites attract. I can pair an introvert with someone who’s moderately extroverted, but you can’t join two people who have polar-opposite personalities. A couple weeks ago I actually got a call from someone who thought I was running an escort service. And occasionally during the interview process a client will say, “Oh, I’m looking for someone about background.” I just look down at my notepad and continue to write. I had never really set anyone up before I started Heart and Soul-Mates, but I’ve always been able to get a good read on people. Plus, people have always told me that I’m very easy to talk to. I don’t have any marriages under my belt yet, though I did just match up a particular local news anchor who I have my fingers crossed for.
I take on a maximum of ten singles at a time, and I generally work with someone for a minimum of six months.I ask really specific questions, like “Are you a door opener? ” As silly as they may sound, they’re important questions.After the initial meeting, I’ll spend the next month looking for potential matches.Then they each call me afterward to give me feedback and tell me how things went.
