Matchmakers

Susan’s grandmother would have attributed her intuitive matchmaking skills to her Ukrainian heritage; her mother to Susan’s career in sales and marketing, especially the newspaper and liquor businesses, which honed her ability to attract attention where it was most needed. Susan might quietly confess to an active premarital single life that sharpened her understanding of the trials of dating and the motto to “always get your man.”

Her long suffering husband, would certainly point to Susan’s need to have her ear on the track, to schmooze in the most unlikely places and to talk to all strangers in her path. Emerging business owners would confess that Susan’s consulting skills enabled them to put their best foot forward. Her astrologer Georgia Nicols says that as a Leo, Susan is the sign of “romance”; her five planets in Cancer make her a “feeler” who understands people’s wants and needs; and her Gemini Ascendant gives her the gift of the gab to “communicate” superbly to everyone. And her friends, they’d focus on her undeniable compassion and people skills.

Raised in the tropical heat of South America and from a large extended family, Annie’s Latin roots give her a passionate streak that is beneficial in the world of love. Combined with her youth, ambition and determination she is a force to be reckoned with. Her international work experience, unique perspective on life and love in tandem with a direct approach make her successful at giving men the tools they need to increase their success rate with the opposite sex.

Her understanding of people and the laws of attraction have led her to field the attention of many a potential suitor. These dating experiences have led her to witness the best and worst techniques used to engage members of the opposite sex. She has been lucky to have more than a few meaningful relationships before having settled down with the one and uses this in her quest to help others achieve success in dating.
