Get YOU started now with The Matchmaker, Sharon Kenny

It doesn’t matter whether you have make the wrong choices to date. All your Relationship genuinely get you closer to Mr/Mr Right.

We are in a Relationship for:

1. A Reason 

2. A Season 

3. Forever 

It all boils down to you and your growth. It starts with LOVING YOURSELF first. It sounds so obvious, but so many of us criticise ourselves on an on going basis. Even the most confident clients have their achilles. So many clients put work first and then say, “I should have come to you years ago”.

Unlike other dating agencies or matchmakers, I make sure you are in the right place. The average person is in 3 Relationships in their life. Sometimes it’s with the same person as you Grow and Change together with age and maturity. You MUST know you. I’m here to help you know yourself better. Nobody who is genuinely looking for love wants to be not be there forever. Not even the so called players on on line dating. It’s hard going back on line dating again and again.

You must be you. The imperfect real you. As they say everyone else is taken. Stop trying to change others. Stop procrastinating and over analysing. As I often tell people it’s not the most stunning person who picks up their match, it’s the person who is having the fun and looks happy and content. 

So what if you don’t feel your ready. You motivate yourself. Take the bull by the horns. Stop critising you and start now. 

You need to feel:

Gratitude, strength and commitment and love WILL come your way. I’m there to tell you where you are going right and wrong. You can text me around the clock and I’ll get back asap to help you.

After getting you sorted:

1. Let’s build your self confidence, knowing your values, qualities (which many over look) and respect.

2. Let’s do your “Circle of Life” and balance your heart & head.

3. Through your “Dream Board” we will discover your needs and wants.

75% go for like. Let’s make sure you know your type. 

So let’s see love go your way.

Contact me today, just send a hi to 0860711711. I’ll come back and remember, we are made to thrive not survive. So get moving now. 

There is no better feeling than loving and receiving love in return.

First Time Ever I Saw Your Face! (First Date Advice)

dating coupleThey say you only get one chance to make a first impression, this of course is absolutely true.
We all make immediate decisions and conclusions on a person the minute we see them.
Here at I believe in giving straight up advice to my clients when I send them on a first date. From appearance to conversational no nos.
So I’ve taken the liberty of compiling a short list of do’s and don’ts for the big night!

Make a concerted effort with your appearance. The most important thing is of course cleanliness.
Now you may think “Jeez Sharon we all know to shower before a date!”
But you wouldn’t believe how many people go out in a shirt they’ve worn the night before or old jeans, so while they may have had a shower it doesn’t look it.
So keep the outfit simple, stylish, & above all something that’s clean and suits you and you feel comfortable in.
Clean well-groomed hair is a must for both men and women!



Wear anything that you feel uncomfortable in, or that you have to adjust constantly. It will make you look nervous and you wont look confident.


Relax and try have fun. This isn’t a job interview! It’s supposed to be fun! Let your sense of humour shine! Display your intellect, don’t be afraid to be you! Be confident and relaxed and of course be yourself.




Talk about the exes!! I cannot stress this enough! Here at I advise all my clients so many times no to mention their exes. It’s suffice to say you were married and now divorced, or that you had one long-term relationship and are now single.
Don’t go into details about the breakup or how you feel about it. Steer clear of that one!
Feel free to do something different to the normal coffee or drink. How about a walk in the park if that’s more your thing?
Be comfortable and safe with whatever you decide to do.

Meet someone from online in their home or invite them to yours! Safety with online dating is paramount. Who people say they are online may not be who they actually are.
I think that’s why coming to me #SharonKenny at is a safer better option.
I personally vet each person thoroughly!
But if you must online date do give as much details including phone numbers of the individual you are meeting.


Smile and have fun, swap fun stories and above all enjoy your evening. Don’t rush ahead too fast allow any potential relationship to develop in its own natural time.

well dressed couple



Be late! It’s polite to be on time it shows respect for your date and demonstrates interest.
Of course if unforeseen circumstances delay you, that can’t be helped. So call or message to explain I would always advise a call. A phone call stands out today in a world of texting.





Well I hope I have given you some basic tips to help make your first date as successful as can be.
I will of course go into more details on upcoming blogs about good outfits for different types of dates etc..
But for now relax enjoy the dating and if you find the harsh world of online dating too much for you, don’t hesitate to contact me Sharon Kenny at #The and I will find you your perfect match!

Online Dating Versus The Matchmaker & True Love

A big question I often get asked here at is “why do I need a matchmaker when there’s free online dating?”
Well I’m going to tell you why in today’s blog.

bored man

Picture the scene. A nice glass of red wine, some of your favourite tunes on and you’re curled up on the sofa about to embark on the wonderful world of online dating!
All excited you’ve downloaded the apps found some cute guys or girls swiped right but mostly left because most are looking for a one night stand or something casual.
That’s not you. You’re looking for the real deal here.
You read profile after profile all the details of someone’s life as they want you to see them.
Two hours have passed already by this stage.
Now here’s where it gets tricky.

Nobody puts up the whole truth here!
That guy who loves the gym but looks like he hasn’t walked a mile in 20 years, that woman who says she’s not a huge drinker but in every photo she’s out having fun with a glass of alcohol in her hands.
One lady I know went to meet a fit healthy non-smoker she says, “He told me he was a gym fanatic when I went to meet him he was very overweight and smoked! As we walked around Dublin I had to slow down for him constantly and all he wanted to do was sit!”
So apart from the slight exaggerations on peoples profiles what else happens in online dating.
Well the hours and hours spent trawling through profiles is bad enough but then BING someone has matched or sent a message so the “conversation” begins.
Hi sexy I love your smile how come you’re single? That’s if you’re lucky mostly it’s just a “Hi”.
So hours and hours even days are spent chatting & you start to wonder “are we ever gonna meet?”
But most likely the conversation vanishes and you’re on to the next messenger!

A-shocked-woman-looking-at-her-phoneI won’t go into the chancers who are only on their for Sexting, the scams looking for your money, the couples looking for a “playmate”, the bored guy who doesn’t know what he wants, and of course the litany of married men & women looking for sex!
So a lot of my clients here at the have run the gauntlet of all these types and many more including stalkers!

People come to me because here at I meet each client individually, I go through any issues that may be holding them back dating wise. From personal appearance advice to first date conversational advice.
The big difference is I spend time with each client and I have a list of comprehensive questions I ask.
I vet each client personally & I have even declined clients if I don’t think they’re truly ready to find “the one”.
There’s no married men or women on my books. I check everyone personally.
When you meet me I get to know you personally so I can find the very best match for you. We sit talk have coffee and it’s a relaxed pleasant and hopeful experience the total opposite of online dating!
The people who come to me are serious about finding love, they aren’t playing at dating they are interested in knowing a person.
I have done those hundreds of hours online trawling through profiles for you & just imagine the amount you’re goanna save on wine! No frustrations and no unsolicited photos of parts of the body only a doctor should be seeing!!

So if you’re looking for real love, true love, put away the apps and invest in a quality service that finds quality matches for genuine people.Sunset-time-happy-couple-love-image
Let me #Sharon Kenny take you by the hand and make the process of dating seem exciting and safe again!

Keep loving yourself
Lots of love

The Ticking Clock (Will I Ever Find Love At My Age?)

mature coupleHave you ever had a birthday coming up and thought, “Jesus another birthday I’m going to spend being single! How does this keep happening?”
Another birthday where you tell your friends “at least being single I can treat myself to a present I really wanted!” The Oscar for best performance in the role “Single & Loving It” is all yours!
Another year, and now you’ve just set the text on your phone to Large! The eyesight is failing! No one calls me “That guy over there” or “This young lady here”! It’s now Sir and Madam how did you become a single version of your parents!?
You’re a decent person. You quite like yourself! You’re funny, laid back, intelligent, attractive etc..
All the things the dating Gurus advise you to be! But still this nagging panic in the back of the head & the heart “What if I never Find the one!?”
Well here at The I can tell you it will happen! So relax and let’s look at this from a rational point of view.
Firstly take a look at your life, can you honestly say you’re doing everything in your power to put yourself out and about?
I get a lot of clients at The who aren’t into the pub scene and that’s fine, but there are plenty of other scenes!
I recently heard from a friend how she decided to take a chance and go to an archery display. Afterwards she was offered a chance to have a go herself. Here she met the guy she’s currently dating! He was her instructor. She’s 47, she did something out of her usual comfort zone!
Try it! For some of you joining me, Sharon Kenny at The might be out of your comfort Zone!
I can tell you here at The we have all ages looking for love, but the majority of our clients are mature professional people looking for a quality relationship.
We are living longer as a species, we don’t get married till later now. Even age differences aren’t as Taboo as they used to be (more on that in another blog)
The rules aren’t fixed or rigid anymore. Life doesn’t begin at 40 anymore it begins at 60!
Slow down because that panic will come across to anyone you encounter. It comes across as needy.
And we all know needy isn’t attractive.
Anyone remember the Pepe Le Pew cartoons!! That poor love starved skunk with the sexy French accent!?
So relax, take a moment and still yourself and ask yourself these questions.

Am I the only Single Person at my age?
What is the population of the county or province I live in?
Chances are with these two questions you’ve realised you’re not alone in your “situation”
So breathe.
Take a step away from the negative thinking and stop watching the clock.
There’s actually an advantage to being single at a late age! I swear, and it’s more than just having the money to buy a Superking bed all for yourself!
The fact is at this age you know yourself better than you did when you met your last mistake!
So this time when someone of lesser quality than you deserve crosses your path, you won’t be wasting your time!
At this age we don’t do Time Wasters anymore. So if you’re really truly feeling ready for love and with someone of quality then pop along to The
And know honestly that there is a lot of people of all ages out there looking for love so regardless of your age you will find love its inevitable!
It’s even more inevitable if you come to me Sharon Kenny, the I have had huge successes with weddings and engagements to my list of achievements.
So take it from me the expert in Matchmaking it absolutely can happen for you no matter what age you are!

Keep believing in yourself
Keep loving you!
Lots of love
Sharon Kenny The Matchmaker.


3 Vital Steps for finding your Unique Match in 2017

I’ve been matchmaking 30 years now and this is my 10th year professionally spreading the love.
My biggest discovery is thinking we know what we want but deep down there are parts we don’t. Why? Because so many of us don’t take the time out to look after us. My youngest client is 27 and my eldest client now is 79. Today I met a lovely entrepreneurial chap age 33. We will call him Chris as Christmas is just over. Chris was so prepared (which is not necessary because I can also help you with this). He has been in a relationships since he was 17 and so happy in himself that he has just taken three years out. Chris felt ignored and bossed in his relationships. This is because his parents split and he felt he didn’t get support from his Mum. As a teenager he was looking for that other half and chose exactly what his Mum was. A partner who is non supportive. He came to me knowing what kind of supportive relationship both ways he was looking for.

Step 1 is you.
How did you get along with your parents? Your siblings? Was there a favorite? How did you feel if it was you/ if it wasn’t you? Where you the carer, truth teller or the baby? This is all part of your awareness and understanding why you think the way you do instead of blaming.The purpose is to help you feel as happy and fulfilled as you can be to give you the best chance in feeling all loved up so you can give it back.

Chris was able to look back over his last three relationships and see a pattern, that I was going to help him break. He went for domineer girls who brought him down just like his Mum did. Now it was his time to appreciate where he is now. A successful business man who has all right in his life except for love. His head is now in the right space. This will encourage love through the right chanels. Me the matchmaker being one of them.

Step 2 be you
Be the best you can be. First impressions do count. It is amazing how much you remember about that first look even 30 years later. Couples remember scent clothes image and a smile. Put your best foot forward. He the most content and secure you can be. Do not over dress or underdress. Be comfortable in your clothing. This makes you happy in your own skin, which brings out the best in you.

Step 3 fulfilled you
Know what you like. Know where you feel most comfortable but don’t meet in your local. Unlike other dating agencies I do not agree about meeting for a meal first. Meet for a drink. There is nothing worse than been stuck with someone who you feel isn’t your type at all and working off the time. A drink also means better eye contact. We also learn more by what’s not said and pick up more. Then go for an early bird. Spontaneity creates excitment which also creates chemistry.

Here’s to love in 2017 and I am the matchmaker who will make it work for you. Remember make this a goal as resolutions are different. They are made to be broken. Let me help you find love.

Love can come your way at any age

The Matchmaker helps you get back out there

The matchmaker, older dating, dating over 50

The matchmaker,
older dating,
dating over 50

It doesn’t matter whether you are 29 or 69 years old.
78% of us have to deal with loosing someone and most wish to get back out there again. It is actually hardest for mature men as they are less inclined to talk to their friends. They are less inclined to talk about their feelings and emotions. It’s the loneliness which is the hardest part for all though. If you have been married or in a long relationship the majority of your life it really is tougher taking that first step to dating again.

How do I start dating again?
When do I go for a kiss if you feel there is chemistry and a spark?
How do I come across to another partner sexually or does even using that word make you cringe?
The next line is usually, “all I’m looking for is someone to cuddle up with”.
Most start criticising themselves and then because of feeling silly, do nothing.

The thing is all you have to do is be yourself.
Take everything from holding hands to the first kiss at your own pace.
Don’t over thing, just enjoy.

I got a text this morning from a gent who was married 25 years and is now a widow. He genuinely didn’t know Val was interested. As the matchmaker I am I get rid of all the “not” I am not sure, not sure if shes interested and the last line says it all, “not confident”. I have the advantage of being that middle man and helping bring up his confidence by letting him know that she is interested. Now this guy is age 64 but the same applies if she’s 34.

So if this part of rejection is denied and you don’t have to face it, it is fair to say by going through the matchmaker and me being able to work that middleman action, I can and will help.

Call me and let’s chat. Love could be a call away.

I didn’t invent Matchmaking, but I perfected it!
So just help me by sharing this…help me help others :}

Lots of love

Best Dating Advice

Love yourself first

Love yourself first

4 Best Start for First Dates
Are you ready for love

Whether you’re 39 years old and concerned about a ticking clock,
32 years old and feel you’re the last of your friends.
55 and not sure how you get started again,
74 and feeling you don’t want to be the next 20 years alone.
I’m here to advise and hopefully lead you down that path to love!

The single people are out there but it’s hard to get the time to find the right one.
It is vital to think of our bucket list and know what you really want.
It’s about meeting the right person by opening up as many ways as possible.
Be creative and connect meeting that partner by doing your bucket list and refining what you truly want.
I have so many clients who come to me and have every aspect of their life sorted. All they need is that unique partner to share it with.
Dating online works for 1%, so if you have the time, Tinder is good to try and POF also. They are free too. Be prepared to meet a lot of messers and fake profiles. However there are genuine people out there though searching is time consuming!

Take up a hobby to meet new and interesting people.
Open up every avenue. Different approaches suit different people, but the more you do the more likely you are to meet your dream partner.

When going on that special date, within the first 8 seconds we make judgements about one another. This could be one of the most important “interviews” of your life. Look your very best. Be the best version of you.
I advise ladies to meet for a drink rather than a walk as men are very visual. Sarah 35 went on a date with Sam 39. Sarah wanted to make an impression. Please ladies, if in doubt ask me. You never show to much leg AND a low cut top. One or the other. Rome wasn’t built in a day!

Leave the past relationship behind. Be genuine and wholesome. (For more info on leaving your baggage behind feel free to email
I got Gabriel (age 44) to do an exit list. This is to deal with all baggage and be in a happy place for going forward. He was still name calling in relation to his ex. Write down all your exs. Add what you learned from that relationship and in your head, send her a thank you letter. You’ve discovered more about what you don’t want which means you won’t make the same mistake again.
Those who come to The MatchMaker have gone through a profile and been given tips and advice to suit you. You are meeting that person because they have qualities and aspirations that match yours. Don’t be afraid to discuss them.

Have fun, respect yourself and is chemistry there make sure you really get to know each other emotionally first.
100% of people who come to the matchmaker are looking for a genuine relationship and find they are making bad choices. I unblock you and help love go your way. I get rid of the messers and advise you where you can be a better you. You are now opening up for a loving and lasting relationship.

At the matchmaker we have to separate the men from the boys, the players from the lovers and the guys who just want to date from the guys who want to get married. It’s up to you to let us know what you are looking for. This is where you can save months of dating as you know these details from the start. It’s just to find next is there that potential spark with you.
One of the most enjoyable part is being like that magic middle lady that can find out what the other half is thinking. There are so many relationships I’ve helped save through lack of communication by not keeping that balanced momentum going and being able to help people by advising you in the right avenue.

E.g. Jill (not her real name) age 54 really likes Martin. He’s 59. She’s more interested in him than the other way around. If the balance isn’t equal it’s hard to keep the relationship going. Instead of her worrying about it ending I’ve encouraged her to believe in herself take a chill pill. Within 3 weeks the relationship is now going strong and at a speed they are both acceptable with. If I wasn’t there for the advice this would never have lasted!

So again be the best version of yourself. Be kinder to yourself. Be happy.

If privacy, trust, advice and time are issues for you. Call me and if nothing else we can have a chat and see can I help you! Call or text Sharon 0860711711

Here’s to love

Dating Agency V Online dating or both

I didn’t invent love, I just perfected it through the one on one introductions at the most successful dating agency in Ireland .

Why would you not open up every possible if finding that genuine relationship is your goal?

I am the matchmaker who leaves no stone unturned when looking for your perfect relationship. So unless you are in a profession and because of your job, finds it awkward or to time consuming to try online dating let me help you do online dating as well as come to me

This sums it up. This romance would never have started if it was online..

Most amazing thing happened me six months ago. I had a client who rang me for advice. He has fallen for his surgeon but didn’t and couldn’t ask her relationship statue. He wanted to know whether to send her flowers. Since he’d finish seeing her as a patient, it was now possible to take this further. As it turns out she’s on my books. Yes, Ireland is small. She’s 49 and he’s 47. I had his max age at 45 for dating so i wouldn’t have match made them. She questioned meeting up due to him being a patient but with a little push from me took the bull by the horns and they are dating since.

I am getting calls all w.e. about dating on line and trusting guys and girls! It is very scary the amount who meet up with strangers and don’t tell anyone.I meet clients out all the time who are interested in my Dating Agency from the point of view that I have met all my clients and safely is paramount, but keeping your options and all avenues open is always my moto. Do not however go with an agency which has not been around for at least 2 years. There are many with fake client banks and this is such a time waster.

When dating remember:

We all know to tell someone where we are going and who we are meeting, this goes for online and meeting clients through my dating agency. I have met everyone but never take unnecessary risks.


1. Be very careful of dating on line or Facebook or online Dating site etc. The latest is people not after your body but fake profiles after your money. Chat asap to make sure they are who they say they are.

2. Meet in a public place where you know you will feel comfortable

3. Make sure someone knows where you are going and who you are meeting (text us the details if you want to keep it private)

4. Appearance. Important to be comfortable, but do make an effort. Wear clothing appropriate to what you want from your date! Remember you don’t need to show it all on the first few dates.

5. Try to make a first date earlier in the evening or during the day, when it is bright outside.

6. Recommend first date do not drink more than two alcoholic beverages. Keep your wits about you.

7. If driving, do not park in a quiet area.

8. Always respect yourself and others.

Be yourself always…and Be Happy!

When you come to me directly. I help you go from no to go. I get you dating with that perfect match.

With 80% success rate, I look forward to helping you find your match. For the 20% I’ll tell you where you can improve and am there to give you a helping hand.
