Do you believe in love at first sight? Renee Brown responds to
interviewer Chris Ilsley.
Drawing parallels to the TV show Married at First Sight, 6pr radio host Chris’s guest was Renee Brown, Matchmaker. Discussing the love versus lust dilemma, Renee Brown makes it clear that lust is in fact one component of what drives us to believe in love at first sight. Can couples that claim love at first sight make it work? Does love occur instantaneously or do couples fall slowly, comfortably in love and live happily ever after?
Rene Brown’s belief that primal urges drive us to choose people we want to date based on
the fitness as a mate or their ability to breed and perpetuate the race.
So these feelings of lust that come upon us and drive us to chase the one we want are caused by chemical reactions within the brain. Brown says we need to call upon the brain at this stage to
analyze the situation and make sure the person is right for us. So pay attention to the
signals that the brain is sending you. Don’t ignore them. Basing your choices on looks only
is a mistake.
Is the love at first sight crowd older?
Caller after caller professed their undying love for mates that they met and married after their first date. Some even proposed on the first date! Most had been married half a century or more.
So what did Renee Brown attribute this to? She says well these are older people and they have
values. Meaning they know how to stick it out when times are tough. Dating at the time these
people were seeking a mate was not the marathon sport that it is now.
Have dating practices evolved?
Current dating practices have evolved into a much faster paced almost sport like event. We have
speed dating, tinder and many other ways that didn’t even exist back then. Renee Brown says
even in the current dating environment we need to use our brains to listen to what is going on and still use our values to help us make the proper choice. Again, we are just doing this at a
higher speed now than ever before.
What about making a return appearance?
In the event that people are returning to the dating world for the first time in 20+ years, the
differences now are so great that they are often shocked and don’t know where to begin. Chris lsley felt this was an excuse to stay married and Renee Brown chimed in that yes, they should
work on their marriage.
Finally, how do we avoid the wrong person?
In one last question Chris asks Renee Brown how to avoid hook-ups with the wrong people? Again she let us know in no uncertain terms, use your brain! Take note of the red flags and pay
attention. Don’t let lust drive your decision. Make sure to engage the brain and pay attention! Renee Brown is a current day matchmaker and appeared on the Chris Ilsley radio show to
discuss the topic of Love at First Sight.
Let Corporate Cupid help you avoid the wrong person and make the right match. We offer
guidance, social events and fun.

Valentine’s Day is here, and while many of us dream of chocolates, roses, and romantic getaways, if we’re not careful, the only thing we might get is a dose of disappointment and heartache.
Whether we are single or in a relationship, Valentine’s Day can be stressful. 40% of people surveyed say they have negative feelings towards the holiday, so if you do too, you are far from alone! Below is a Valentine’s Day Survival Guide to help you navigate the day so you are able to move beyond any negative feelings and enjoy it.
I think that the worst thing a person could do on Valentine’s Day is forgetting all about it. Put it on your calendar in big red letters. And a few days before, make sure you put a reminder in your day planner or your smartphone. Planning ahead to implement some of the do’s on this list will involve some advance thought and effort.
Put things in perspective
Ask yourself what this holiday really means to you. Just remember that since we were young, advertisers have shaped our concept of Valentine’s Day. We have been inundated with images of cupids, fancy dinners, sunsets, and diamonds, and all this visual conditioning has created an expectation of what should be. That formula has worked for marketers. The industry generates more than 14 billion dollars in retail sales each year. With that in mind, do some digging on what this day really means to you. Discover what you truly value and come up with your own definition of the significance of Valentine’s Day.
Don’t do the same thing you did last year
Even if it worked well, your partner will appreciate something new and different. She wants to know that you thought about her as you planned your Valentine’s Day gift or event.
What to do on Valentine’s Day….If you are single
So if you’re single, why not celebrate you and that amazing ability you have to love. Love, in all its forms, is worth celebrating. Here are some ways to celebrate yourself this Valentine’s Day.
Focus on all the positive things in your life
Look around at all you have in your life. Look at your friends, your family, your career, your support network. You have lots to be really grateful for and lots of things to focus on that are positive and leading you in the right direction. If it helps, start a gratitude journal to help keep perspective.
Make yourself a fancy dinner
With the ridiculous prices at restaurants on Valentine’s Day, taking yourself out to a fancy dinner may not be worth it. Instead, try making a recipe you’ve always wanted to try — or order your favorite takeout meal — and breakout the champagne.
Organise a night out with other single friends.
Find a positive group of friends and plan a fun night out together. Do things you might not be doing if you were in a relationship: chose the place you want to go to, flirt with strangers, and stay out late.
What to do on Valentine’s Day….If you are in a relationship or married
One of the nicest parts of being in a relationship is having routines that you share together and love: Saturday mornings spent leisurely snuggled up together; going to your favourite neighbourhood sushi restaurant; or watching your favorite TV shows together. But becoming too comfortable in your routines can put your relationship at risk of falling into complacency and even boredom, which isn’t so great for your relationship.
Do something new and adventurous together
Research has found that couples who experience new and exiting activities together have an increase in the quality of their relationship (Aron et al, 2000). Trying new things together brings back the feelings of excitement and the thrill that you felt when you first fell in love.
Use the day to strengthen your relationship
Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to take stock of the past year, and reconnect with your partner. Take some time to reflect on what makes your partner special, and write these things down in the card you’re going to give them. I have always believed the message in the card is the most important part of any gift.
Incorporate Appreciation and Gratitude
One hallmark of committed, solid couples is an ability to show gratitude to one another (Gordon et al., 2012). When your partner feels appreciated, he or she will in turn be more likely to appreciate you and all you do for them. On Valentine’s Day, incorporate gratitude with a gift that shows your high level of appreciation. Say it in your card, in your gift (love vouchers are a classic), or write down how you feel in a poem or love letter.
Add an Element of Mystery or Surprise To Your Celebration
Research indicates that when people receive a gift that is unexpected or has an element of mystery surrounding it, they tend to feel more positively about the experience, and the happy feelings last longer, when compared to something they expect (Wilson et al., 2005). So for Valentines Day, add an element of the unexpected to your gift.
Give a personalised gift from the heart
More than anything, your partner wants to feel loved and appreciated. If the two of you are exchanging presents, give a thoughtful gift that shows you have really been paying attention to your partner’s needs and wishes. Often better than giving a material item is to plan a shared experience, such as a night out to the theater or a dinner at a special restaurant. The experience builds positive memories, which both of you will always share.
What matters on February 14, and indeed every day of your relationship, is that you feel loved, respected, cherished and cared about by someone whom you love, respect, cherish and care about. So talk it over with your beloved. Make something happen – together – that is as personal and loving as your relationship.
We hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

Has bad dating advice left you feeling vulnerable?
There is no shortage of dating advice out there from friends and family but what you need is a Singles Social Club – I’m talking a real life experience. Until you have the chance to enjoy a wonderful event with like-minded people.
The problem though is much of the advice you’ve recieved has been mistaken and based on personal experiences and opinions, rather than actual research about relationships. Below, I take on five common pieces of dating advice that are misguided or flat-out wrong.
This why you need a Social Club! Research shows that a lot of popular dating wisdom is wrong.
When You Meet The Right Person, You’ll Know Right Away. One comforting piece of advice is that when the right person comes along, you’ll just magically know. Maybe you’ll even experience love at first sight. Unfortunately for those romantics out there, the evidence suggests that there’s no magic. In a series of studies, Paul Eastwick and colleagues tracked people’s memories of various relationship experiences across the entire course of their relationships, both short-term and long-term. They found that early in a relationship, the timing of various relationship milestones (e.g., first kiss, first sexual encounter) and the strength of people’s feelings toward their partner was the same for both short and long-term relationships. It was only later on that the researchers saw differences between relationships that lasted and relationships that eventually fizzled.
If You’re Interested In Someone, Play Hard To Get. Many relationship advice books tell women that they should play hard to get if they hope to attract a man. According to this strategy, men like what they can’t have, so a woman should act uninterested in the man she desires. Girls think that playing hard to get will make a guy like them, and being too available will turn him off. This isn’t true. Waiting a certain amount of time before texting him back and pretending to be busy when you’re not doesn’t get a guy to like you, it gets a guy to chase you. The problem with the chase is that it creates the illusion of having chemistry.
Focus On Putting Your Best Foot Forward Until You’re Firmly Committed. Some dating advice suggests that the courtship experience should be approached as a game with the end goal of snagging a partner: Carefully monitor your behavior and the impression that you create in order to win the prize of a committed relationship. It’s true that first impressions matter and that you should generally be on good behavior on your early dates. Opening up too soon is generally viewed as socially inappropriate and is likely to turn someone off. But sometimes this advice goes too far.
Opposites attract, so try to find someone really different than you.
People often claim that opposites attract. Studies have found that people are
more likely to be attracted to and pursue romantic relationships with
individuals who are more like themselves across a broad range of personal
characteristics, including age, religion , political orientation, and certain
aspects of intelligence . Consider the 2014 research paper in which an international team of economists found that better-educated people tend to
marry other better-educated people—while individuals with less formal
schooling tend to partner with people of comparable educational levels.
Generally speaking, it appears, birds of a feather romantically flock together.
You’ll Only Meet Liars And Weirdoes If You Date Online.
Many people believe that everybody lies online. Online daters do sometimes
lie about their age and physical appearance. However, research shows that
extreme lies are rare because people who are looking to develop relationships
with those they meet online realize that such lies will eventually be revealed,
and when they are, it would likely spell the end of the relationship. There is
also a stereotype that people who use online dating are desperate because
they are unable to get a date “in real life.” Contrary to this picture, research
shows that there are almost no personality differences between people who
date online and those who don’t. In fact, one study found that people who met
their spouses online were more likely to be of higher socioeconomic status
than those who met offline. When you’re on the dating market, be yourself,
don’t chase after your polar opposite, don’t expect to instantly know if you’ve
found “the one,” and don’t be afraid to try online dating.

Research has well established the link between good self-esteem and relationship satisfaction. Self-esteem not only affects how we think about ourselves, but also how much love we’re able to receive and how we treat others, especially in intimate relationships.
“Low self-esteem can make you test or sabotage relationships that have potential, or settle for relationships in which you’re treated in a way that matches your beliefs about yourself,” says clinical psychologist Suzanne Lachmann, Psy.D.
People with high self-esteem are aware of the fact that to maintain a successful relationship; inner happiness is all that matters. And to keep up with that, one should know his self-worth, which has nothing to do with money, education or health. Individuals who have a high level of self-recognition are acutely aware of themselves and what they want from a relationship. Before involving a long-lasting and positive relationship, he always starts by respecting himself.
He strives to know about himself and also if he is ready for the future consequences of involvement. Therefore, all the qualities mentioned above for a person with high self-esteem, make him stand out among the rest. Knowing their worth first, helps them to involve with a better understanding of a relation.
If you have low self-esteem you won’t be able to relate to others well. You may feel a lack of confidence in social situations. Your body language may be negative and you will not respond to others positively. Relationships you have had for a while can quickly go downhill if you suffer from low self worth. Even the best of friends will grow tired of someone who cannot help himself / herself. You may take on a victim mentality. This means you will blame everyone and everything for how you feel. You will not be able to relate to others well because you will act like a victim rather than an equal.
Why not complete the ‘Quizzes and More’s The Self Worth Quiz?
Once you’ve completed the scale, add together all of the numbers assigned to each response you chose, and review the appropriate feedback below.
If Your Score Ranged From:
10-25 –Your score indicates that you have a fairly poor sense of your self worth. And chances are that your ideas about yourself are not really accurate – you may be focusing too much on the negative and ignoring the many positive aspects of who you are as a person. Poor self worth is something you should consider working on because it can interfere with your interest in and ability to go after challenging goals. It can also make it more difficult for you to find a healthy romantic relationship, with a partner who values you as a person and who treats you well. Click here to learn more about what you can do to work on developing a more positive sense of self worth.
26-40 – Your score indicates that your sense of self worth is moderate – lower in some areas and higher in others. Although no one feels they’re the best at everything (and, of course, no one actually is the best at everything), it’s possible that some of your more negative feelings about yourself could be improved by a change of focus, or working harder to accomplish certain goals.
41-50 – Your score indicates that you have a fairly positive sense of your self worth. That’s great, because feeling this way can improve your ability to successfully accomplish challenging goals, and to find and maintain a healthy romantic relationship.
Healthy Self-Worth in Relationships When you understand the influence that lack of self-worth has on your relationships, you can take steps to change what stands in the way of a meaningful and balanced relationship. A healthy sense of self-worth can transform your life.
According to psychologists Nathaniel Branden and Robert Sternberg, who have both researched and written about the challenges of romantic relationships, little displays of interest and affection can be more important than all the “active listening” and trust games in the world. Their research has suggested 10 keys to a Successful Romantic Relationship, keeping both partners content, satisfied, and happy with each other.
1. Tell your partner you love them.
Although it’s true that actions speak louder than words, words often speak more clearly than actions. Take a moment every now and then to verbalize your feelings for your partner. It shows commitment- The phrase I love you is a big step in any relationship so by repeating it -shows you are still embracing this milestone each and every day. It makes your partner feel secure- If something has rocked your relationship lately- this can let your loved one know that whatever life throws at you- you still love them no matter what.
2. Show some affection
Small acts of physical intimacy – the hand on the small of the back as you brush by in the hallway, your arm around their shoulder on the sofa, your hand on their thigh when seated side-by-side, holding hands while walking down the street. Small affectionate moments can have a big ripple affection in your relationship. When we show affection to our partners and husbands, they feel noticed, respected, and cherished.
3. Show appreciation to your partner
Appreciation is a key to any relationship. Appreciating someone makes them feel good about what they do, and that it makes a difference to their lives. It makes them feel better about themselves, urging them to go on with new vigor, strengthening your relationship.
4. Share yourself
When people share their opinions and feelings they develop a greater understanding of each other’s likes and dislikes. It may also help to work out what each other are wanting from the relationship. Don’t keep your likes and dislikes, dreams and fears, achievements and mistakes, or anything else to yourself. If it’s important to you, share it with your partner.
5. Be there for your partner.
It’s obvious what you need to do when your partner faces a major life challenge like the loss of a job or the death of a loved one. But it’s just as important to be supportive when your partner faces life’s little challenges, too – an argument at work, a rough commute, a misplaced check. Don’t let yourself be a doormat, and definitely don’t stand for physical or verbal abuse, but thicken your skin a little and be the voice of calm and reason when chaos strikes. Listen to what’s bothering them and offer whatever help – even if it’s just sympathy – you can.
6. Give gifts
Gifts have always been an important part in developing healthy, loving relationships. Apart from being just a simple gesture of appreciation towards your partners, giving the right gifts can show just how much you care for, and understand them. While all relationships are unique, no one can deny the impact these things have on creating a stronger bond and deeper connection with each other. The time one takes to get to know his or her partner’s preferences, personalities, and unique quirks makes a well-chosen gift even more special because of the effort that goes into choosing it.
7. Respond gracefully to your partner’s demands and shortcomings
A big killer of relationships is unreasonable expectations. Unless you married a robot, your partner comes pre-loaded with a whole range of human failures and foibles. These are features, not bugs! Learn to recognize and appreciate your partner’s quirks for what they are: an essential part of who they are as people. Since our weaknesses are often at the core of our deepest insecurities, make sure you don’t pick on or otherwise go out of your way to highlight your partner’s flaws.
8. Make “alone time” a priority
No matter how busy both of your lives are, make sure you commit at least an evening every week or two to be alone together. “When we spend quality and designated time on ourselves, we nurture our own social and emotional well- being, which makes us more likely to carry that out towards other relationships,” says therapist Julia Colangelo , LCSW. “It is vital that to enable our relationship to grow, we must also grow and develop as a person.”
9. Take nothing for granted
Cultivate a daily sense of gratitude for your partner and the thousands of little blessings he or she has brought into your life. Not taking each other for granted is all about giving time for each other. It is all about showing concern for your partner. It is all about asking how his or her day was. It is all about giving your partner a hug before he or she leaves for work. It is all about the small things that you do for your partner that makes him or her feel loved.
10. Strive for equality
Make sure you follow the Golden Rule in your relationship: do unto your partner as you would have done unto you. Strive for a fair division of household duties and other tasks, and don’t expect or demand special considerations you’d be unwilling to offer.

Perth is a wonderful city for dating and falling in love.
So, you’ve been out on the dating scene for a while and think you’ve finally
met your match. How do you know?
What does love feel like?
Love feels different for everyone. Look to yourself and your
own body for some telltale signs that it just might be love! There are those
that have fallen in love many times and they just know the signs that they are
in love with someone. Others have never had that feeling and may think there’s
something wrong. Trust us. Next time you’ll know for sure.
You’ve got the look.
Do you remember the first time he/she caught your eye across
the room? You couldn’t look away. Weeks and months later, are you still feeling
that way? Couples that are truly in love lock eyes often. It’s a closeness they
share with no one else. Locking eyes across the room breeds security in knowing
that your loved one has their eyes on you and only you. Even at home you will
find that there are times when you stare at your partner and just watch them.
Not in a creepy way but kind of like watching a puppy sleep.
Their happiness is important to you.
Dating Perth offers many places to take your love interest
and taking stock of your loved ones likes and dislikes makes choosing the
perfect date night easier than you think. Go down the list of what they like
and choose places that offer their favorite meals and activities. If you find
yourself doing this, planning with their likes and dislikes in mind, that is a
big sign of true love. You don’t want your partner to suffer through anything
You’re just a little numb lately.
Well, not really numb. But, your pain levels are much less
than they’ve been before. People that are in love are bothered less by pain.
People have actually studied this! I don’t think that I’d volunteer for that
study, but never the less it’s a handy fact to know. The next time you go to
the dentist keep your phone handy and look at pictures of your loved ones.
Things are up in the air.
That’s a nice way of saying you’ve got that high on life
feeling. You’re a little goofy and fun! Yay! Goofy and fun is good. You may not
make a lot of sense to other people but to the one you love, those words and
looks you share only with them let them know you are completely in sync.
The quirkier the better!
The things that seem to drive
people crazy about your partner really don’t bother you. If fact, you find some
of them endearing. For instance when they are loading a plate for dinner,
nothing can touch! It’s quirky but you don’t care, so when you serve them you
make the effort to not let anything touch. Maybe they don’t speak before
coffee. Ok, so no talking until after coffee. It’s not a bad thing; you like
reading the paper.
Dating Perth Love Signs Abound.
If you’ve been out and about dating Perth, and think you may have met “the one” see if you’re experiencing any of these signs. If so, you’re on your way and if not, don’t despair. Dating Perth is easy and fun! Let AussieCupid.com.au find “the one” for you!
Matchmaking works best for happy people! Why are some people happy? Why are others just so miserable? Happiness is not something you order like fast food. There is not a tried and fast formula that says add one tablespoon of this and a teaspoon of that. It is not the same for each person. Online matchmaking services are a worthwhile try for happiness when it comes to dating.
Intentions must be clearly happy.
First, you should know, happiness is intentional. It comes from our actions. Actions that we take each and every day to intentionally be happy. It is conscious. It is individualized and one of the best decisions we make each day. You should never miss an opportunity to start the day happy. Approach matchmaking in the same way. First be open, second be intentional and third be happy.
Make the decision to be happy in your thoughts and actions today.
Each day as you wake make the decision to be happy. Think
each and every action, seeing which actions make you happy and which do not.
Which actions are building blocks for happiness? Cast aside others in favor of
what you now know as a happy task, a happy decision. In each task find the
peace, the happiness and let it out. For only in happiness can we truly find
our center and let that happiness spread from within. Matchmaking services like
AussieCupid require that you are open and honest in your actions so that you
find the best possible match.
It’s in your smile.
Choose Happiness for the best matchmaking service.
Practice being happy each and every day. Choose happiness in
every waking moment. Smiling is an outward expression of happiness. Smile as
you give voice or action to each decision, each task. As you practice being
happy look in the mirror and smile at yourself knowing you are going to be
happy today. It works in dating as well.
Smile at the sight of your date and say to yourself “This is going to be a fun
date. I am happy.”
Happiness truly lives within you. Even at the darkest times
it is possible to wake up and make the conscious decision to be happy. Fighting
the event, the reason you awake and are given the opportunity to be happy every
day is feudal. You are alive, and this is reason enough to be happy in that
moment. Find more of those moments within. You can do it.
Finally, choosing happiness is where you will succeed in both life and online dating. Each day that you decide to make it a happy day is a victory for you and for those around you. Smile proudly and in return you will surely be rewarded by happiness and smiles. Using a matchmaking service gives you the opportunity to practice happiness and stress-free dating.
Contact AussieCupid to give it a shot today! Lastly, remember to smile!
Just like the process of finding love, love itself should never leave you feeling rushed. Moving too fast is a sign that this is not the right relationship. Love is truly patient and will wait until the time is right. Talk, get to know each other, spend time feeling comfortable. Go at your own pace. Take time to notice the little things that you do for one another. Does he open the door? Does she ask about your day? The little things mean a lot.
Love is kind.
Kindness is measurable. Does your date treat those around him or her with respect, do you feel an overwhelming sense of gratitude – a readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. Anyone can purchase gifts and chocolates but they are soon gone. Kindness and respect mean a lot more.
Love bears all things.
True love means that when your partner or your date has to cancel or tells you something you may not want to hear, there is understanding rather than anger. Sometimes life gets in the way. Love understands this and knows that there will be another opportunity to plan something amazing or that we do not have control over all aspects of life. The loving partner will offer support if you need it and help you through difficult times.
Love hopes all things.
Love never wishes you ill. Your true love will always live to see you succeed. Your successes will make them truly happy just as theirs would. It is important to understand that at times in a relationship one walks while the other runs. If you are the one walking right now, hope for the best for your partner and in time it will be your turn.
Love endures all things.
Life throws many punches along the way. Loved ones pass, new loved ones arrive; houses are bought and sold. With each event there is stress and heartache or joy. Life is not easy. A true love will stand by your side through the good times and the bad. Love commits to be there with you regardless of circumstances, regardless of outcomes. Love is with you every step of the way.
