Find Mates, Not Dates | Bonnie Winston

“Don’t learn everything about them before the first date. You’ll have a whole thing built up in your head, it won’t work out, and then you’ll be depressed. Talk for 15 minutes and then make the date. That’s it.” – Bonnie Winston

Online dating doesn’t work.

For most of us, it becomes an entertainment system rather than a utility driving us toward companionship. We hobble through creating our profile to then swipe through others’ profiles, judging our prospective matches based on their appearance. We think to ourselves: is this a step in the right direction?

On today’s episode of the $mart Women Invest podcast, we are joined by Bonnie Winston, the premiere matchmaker in New York City and Los Angeles. Her focus is to create passion without the drama for her clients. By getting to know each client, she matches you with who her gut thinks would be a great fit.

Tune in to our interview to learn the elements of a successful dating partnership and how to apply the insights to your dating life!

“You don’t want to run to City Hall after 2 weeks. You have to live with each other, take a trip, learn each other’s differences.” – Bonnie Winston

Points to Keep In Mind

  • Have financial conversations up front and early before marriage.
  • Pay for vacations by cooking at home instead of going out for meals.
  • Don’t expect the financial freedom of courtship to last into a relationship.
  • The online dating behavior resembles dating as a teenager.
  • Women in NYC want stability and loyalty. Chemistry ranks 6th.
  • Ask your dating partner what their end game is.
  • Live and travel together before getting married.
  • Don’t exhaust chemistry by over-talking before the first date.
  • Filter your clients by who is worth the money; be skeptical of over demanding clients.
  • Prioritize what’s important to you.
