NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Although the mobile revolution has enabled millions of single people to find that certain someone at the swipe of a finger, a study by Pew Research Center last February found a third of the people using dating apps never meet anyone in person. With Valentine's Day just around the corner, Sameera Sullivan, Elite matchmaker, dating expert and Founder and CEO of Lasting Connections, says finding lasting love is a highly-personalized process.
In this hi-tech world, making a true connection requires expertise in human relationships, confidentiality, and a keen understanding of people's needs. Therefore, you need more than an assessment and digital matching tool to meet your best match. "When working with clients, I find they also need a coach to walk them through the initial phases of a relationship and their concerns around dating," says Sameera Sullivan, CEO and founder of Lasting Connections. "There is a lot of legwork involved and most executives don't have the time or expertise to do that so they entrust our team to do so."
While there are success stories from happy couples who met online, the Internet is not right for everyone in search of love. For those with discriminating tastes, Lasting Connections offers a disciplined, highly personalized process founded on an honest and trusting working relationship between Sameera and her clientele. While online dating presents special challenges to high-profile singles looking for love, Sameera's matchmaking services are completely tailored to the needs, preferences and goals of each client.
Sameera has a unique background combining experience as an executive recruiter with two advanced degrees, including one in Adult Clinical Psychology, and rare intuition for forging compatible relationships. She believes finding the perfect match starts with embracing our most authentic self and celebrating the love that exists around us.
"Whether you are a bleeding-heart romantic or dabbling in the dating scene, the best way to open yourself up to love this season is to celebrate life and show appreciation for all the little joys it has to offer," says Sullivan. "Give someone a hug. Smile at someone. Be cheerful. There is never enough love floating about in the air, and spreading kindness to the people around you invites love into your life."
Based in New York with offices in Texas and across the West Coast, Lasting Connections is an upscale matchmaking service that specializes in matching its elite clients with a compatible partner for satisfying, long-term relationship. Since its inception, Sameera has evolved Lasting Connections to include a variety of services for its range of clientele including Elite Matchmaking, a Singles Registry, Dating Consulting Services, and Image Consulting. Each service brings clients one step closer to the love they've been looking for all their life.
Lasting Connections also offers a Luxury Retreat for Women at the Borgo Finocchieto in Tuscany, Italy from April 24, 2017 to April 29, 2017.
