Dear Rachael,

You may not have remembered me. My name is jacqueline, one of your clients. When I first come to your office a few years ago asking for your help, you lend me this book to read.
I have learnt a lot from this book, and I want to thank you for everything. As I was going through my book shelf collection, I realized I have not returned the book to you!
So here I am, delivering this book back to you. And I'm sure you will be thrilled to hear that I'm married and have a 22 months boy, im also expecting another baby in Feb 2019. We will be moving to Singapore soon!

So thank you once again!
And all the best!

Jacqueline

Catherine, 51, executive director of an asset management company, divorced with one son.

Rachael says, “Among my clients of her age, I think Catherine is the most attractive one, with the best body shape and she is very intelligent. She is ESTJ, the Executive character, who likes to make plans and she is very good at getting things done. Expressing herself, caring and showing emotion are her weaknesses. I recommended her to read related articles and practice showing her caring nature. I knew she will find someone when she came to my office.”

Catherine says, “R&S is a premium matchmaking service. Rachael fully understands how senior executives and professionals nowadays treasure their valuable time. She matched my profile with prospects in various aspects, including academic level, age, background, social status, and dating expectations, so that we have already have things in common with each other before we meet. By paying attention to details such as the meeting venue, drinks and food, R&S helped us create a pleasant beginning. As Rachael says, “Rule number one of is dating is to ENJOY!”

“R&S introduced me to Jonathan, with whom I have been on six dates. Rachael followed up after each date; she cared about our feelings and listened to our thoughts throughout our journey of knowing each other. Rachael always offers support and constructive ideas in order to help us have a positive mind, even though dissonances were found along the path. Finding a good partner is not always easy but with guidance from Rachael, I found that the process is interesting and rewarding.

Jonathan and I are taking time to get to know each other, when we are together, time flies. I am not sure about the future, what I know is that my dating life is much happier now. Not everyone likes Rachael’s advice but I treasure it like gold.

Rachael's Matching Diary: It’s never too late to find love
Rachael's Matching Diary: It’s never too late to find love

Catherine, 52, very fit, ESTJ
Jonathan, 65, hitting the gym 5-6 times a week, ENFJ

Age is no hurdle to finding love again.
My chance encounter with Jonathan, 65, my former client a decade ago, at the gym has opened the door on dating for him when he has all but given up on romance. 

He told me his daughter urged him to look for a serious girlfriend. He said he chose Rachael & Smith due to my track record in matchmaking. I matched him with Catherine, 52. 

Divorced with kids, both work in management and finance. Jonathan is insightful and full of ideas, while Catherine is observant and keen to put ideas into action.  

On their first date, Jonathan mentioned his birthday was two weeks away. Katherine offered to take him to dinner to celebrate. Always the one who pays the bills, he was impressed by her generosity and confidence. Without checking his phone even once, his focus on their dinner left a good impression on her.

  Having only slight physical attraction to her, he had doubts in the beginning whether their chemistry can sustain in the long run. I explained to him it takes time for mature individuals—single males over 50 and females over 40—to allow for good romance to brew. Jonathan told me he wants to take her seriously and won’t rush for anything physical. 

They are going to have the birthday dinner and more dates to get to know each other. 

Jonathan later told me he had actually given up on dating. “That is, until I bumped into you, who introduced Katherine to me.”


Love blossoms on billiard table
Love blossoms on billiard table

Vivian, 32, private banker, ESTP
Calvin, 41, director of a global recruitment company, ESFJ

Among the clients who join our billiard gatherings, Calvin is the best player.
Vivian told me she wanted to learn playing pool. From my experience, Vivian is not very good at expressing appreciation and emotions. She can come across as a bit difficult to be approached. I reminded her that ESTP people are very logical and she needed to improve her communication skills. She took my advice seriously and became more generous in complementing others.

An attractive girl who always wears high heels, Vivian was courted by my other clients, but I wanted to give Calvin a chance. At our 14th anniversary party, I arranged a pool game for them. They played as a team and won. He sent her flowers and invited her to dinner afterwards. Two months later, they told me they are off the market.

ESTP women won’t start a relationship unless they see it as leading to marriage. That she picked Calvin out of all her pursuers means it is likely that they will tie the knot soon.

When I play Cupid for my clients, I always match singles with compatible personality types. That’s why Calvin, being the ESFJ type with loyalty, extroverted traits and strong planning skills, hit it off with the ESTP Vivian who is logical, extroverted but weak in planning for the big picture.

Since the start of their dating, Calvin lost much weight for Vivian. A handsome chap coupled with an attractive girl. I look forward to their wedding.

Even though it was just a short few months, I have had a wonderful experience with Rachael.

Through her agency, I had the opportunity to meet some very high caliber ladies and every date arranged was nicely planned. I am most impressed with the diversity of her candidates, in terms of culture, experiences, and profession. During these past months, I was able to meet with ladies from various parts of the world, and with careers spanning from finance, legal, medical, to charity, art and music.

Secondly, I am also very impressed with the speed that Rachael could come up with potential candidates. In this area, I must say that Rachael is highly efficient. I recall that almost immediately after joining their plan, they were able to arrange multiple dates for me even during the first week.

Lastly, after each date, Rachael also follows up closely with each candidate for a post-date review, which I find very helpful.

Also speaking from experience, comparing Rachael's firm to another larger dating agency which I also joined, I would pick Rachael’s firm anytime. Even though Rachael’s firm might be smaller than other bigger names, I find both the breadth and quality of candidates from Rachael much better than the other larger firms. Also the larger firms generally do not give the personal touch and attention as much as Rachael does.

Overall, I am very glad that I signed up with Rachael, as she is a person that can really make things happen. I give her and her dedicated team an excellent recommendation.

Rachael and her team set up a few dinner dates for me with ladies with professional careers and overseas experiences similar to mine. Her team made excellent venue suggestions and did a great job coordinating everything.

The ladies were elegant, well-educated, well-mannered, and friendly. Most importantly, I was impressed that they were all very sincere and earnest in their search for a stable and loving long-term relationship. Some people might question the sincerity of the members, but we have all paid a fee to take this journey together, why would we waste time and play around?

We are all busy with our work, and tired of the endless, pointless dating scenes, never knowing for certain if we’ve found the right one who is as sincere as we are. Her team did a superb job setting me up with the right ladies. Chemistry is the key for me, and I think I have found the one and look forward to spending more quality time together.

One of our main objectives is to help our clients become better versions of themselves so that when the opportunity arises, they are much better prepared to welcome a new relationship. The Rachael & Smith team is very happy to receive Maisie's message recently:

“Rachael, I am pleased to announce that I got engaged last Sunday! Thanks for your advice and help throughout the past year! Although Mr. Right was not from R&S, I learnt a lot about who I am and what I needed to fulfill my dreams. Once again, it was a pleasure to have you guys on my love journey and Rachael's guidance gave me some of my greatest insights!”

Thanks a million

Acrobats. Rachael and her team must be acrobats to be able to so finely balance the expectations of their clients. Likened to high-end headhunters, their job is in fact much harder as the observable data set is inconsistent - and that's intuitive because everyone is unique! And uniqueness demands individual tailoring and matching. But it's not for the faint-hearted. If clients aren't ready to make the effort, then don't waste her time or her client's time. Her brutal style is designed to break you out of your style that has led you to her doorway. A must try!

銀行家透過約會技巧指導成功配對的故事

我們的客人進行瘦身,學習化妝的技巧,約會的技巧,最後幸福地步入了婚姻的殿堂。

"那天,我坐在家中,看著我理想中的愛人,想到自己在銀行工作,認識單身男士的機會實在有限。有一天,我決定和朋友一起註冊參加單身派對活動。活動當天,朋友並不想和我一起去,所以我只好獨個兒前往。第一次參加的派對活動並沒有得到預期的結果,感到挫敗。此後,我跟Rachael傾談,告訴她我真的希望有個男朋友。

Rachael坦白地對我說, '你知道嗎, 如果你很苗條和擁有好的皮膚,會比較容易吸引男士。你只要和他們約會一次,他們便會發現你的內在美。

於是,我決定暫停所有社交活動,認真進行皮膚護理,學習化妝和瘦身20磅。我參加了Rachael下一個的派對活動和運用了Rachael教授的約會技巧。成功了!!在第2次的派對活動中我遇見了我的真命天子,現在的丈夫。"

莎曼和莊臣的故事

在情人節派對認識,擁有幸福婚姻的一對夫婦

2009年2月14日是我人生中的轉捩點。那天我遇到了我的真命天子,於2010年結婚,2012年迎接我們的小女孩。一切都在情人節晚上極速約會派對開始。

我當時還是單身,想在情人節晚上做點特別的事。極速約會派對晚上8時開始,我下午5時已經開始裝扮。

為什麼在情人節晚上參加極速約會派對? 我想能夠來參加這活動的男士都是單身,不是嗎? 此外,誰會願意花費在情人節去和陌生人見面,我認為只有那些真心尋找心中理想情人的人會這樣做。

很多朋友會問我在極速約會中找到真命天子的關鍵是什麼。首先,要學會聆聽比傾談重要,這讓你更加了解他。
