Chodesh tov! We can't ignore the craziness around us...it is startling and scary to say the least... I want to take a moment to encourage and appreciate our soldiers, our bnot sheirut, our police officers, our amazing army, navy and marines, and our government officials who dedicate their lives to work tirelessly and selflessly to protect us and enable us to live here in our beautiful Israel. I value what you do so much. I also appreciate the people who advocate to the world about who Israel really is and our right to live in our country and to protect ourselves, as they would protect themselves in their country and who would tell them not to protect themselves? We all have work to do to make our world a better place and our Jewish People a more united and happy nation regardless of our different styles of living. I'll tell you what I have been doing this week so far to make the world a better place. ... I set up one couple this week and working on many more... I already had a few amazing meetings with fabulous people, I have great relationships (couples that I "set up"!!) developing world wide, with all ages and types, I am also in close touch with many daters and couples who are dating to make sure that they are happy in their relationships... critical... not just putting people together just to have another shidduch success and telling them that it will all be fine... it will work... but rather my work involves truly making sure that each couple is a mutually happy couple. I believe that each person has their own way of giving to the world to make it a better place. What are you doing?

Meeting 'Her' Parents!

  • I'll never forget the anxious feelings I had before meeting each of my husband's family members... and no matter how amazing they were and continue to be... I was so nervous. I couldn't even eat a thing!! Just be yourself is the best advice... but along those lines, yesterday, a guy asked me...

  • Q: "I'm going to her family for shabbat for the first time this week.  any tips?

  • I'll be staying at the neighbors."

  • A: Yes. Sure!

  • 1. Try to bring either flowers, wine, chocolates/ candy or fruit for both your sleeping hosts and for your girlfriend's family and/ or her as well... it doesn't have to be too expensive. It's the thought that counts.

  • 2. It's all in the note.... write a nice note for each gift... this is super important! Flowers don't last, but the note does.... also, it shows sensitivity and that you are sentimental.

  • 3. Smile. Be friendly with her family,  but don't lose sight of your girlfriend. Pay attention to her, as well. It makes sense that they are paying attention to how you are interacting with each other. Of course you will want to be together, but sometimes people are so focused on making a good impression on their new family to- be, that they don't spend enough time with their new spouse to- be.

  • Response: "Thanks. that is actually really useful advice.  I didn't think of all of that."

My pleasure! Good luck and enjoy!

"Networking for Singles" ... How it works...

Share this post
FaceBook  Twitter  

Cool! I just set up my 2nd 'set up' for the week.... and happy to do so many more... :)smile emoticon For those of you who are curious of how my 'setting up' people works... People send me a message that they would like to meet me either on email, FB message or via my website and I tell them how I work and we set up a time to meet in person if they are living in Israel and on Skype or Google Hangout if they live outside of Israel. As each new person comes to meet with me, I get to know them well enough to set them up with a suitable date. Of course, both the guy and the girl have to be available and interested to meet each other... Sometimes I set up a date relatively quickly and sometimes it takes a lot of time... as examples, sometimes someone is "busy" or out of town and time elapses or I just need to wait till someone suitable comes into my network. I feel that I spend enough time getting to know each person... as a new friend, and I get a good sense of what each person is looking for, what their range is and what they are really like... sometimes it is relatively fast (as successful examples; shidduch #4, within 1.5 weeks, shidduch #3, within 7 weeks and shidduch #1, within 3.5 months) and sometimes it takes longer than I want to wait... I never want to wait....I want this to happen super fast!... and I work around the clock meeting new people, setting couples up, and facilitating the dates when appropriate.... But what I have learned is that people appreciate that I really try to only set up a couple when it is a good idea and when they are both in my network and it is the 'right time', like with my 2nd shidduch (8 months) and my 5th shidduch ( 9.5 months) ... then... with the help of G-d, I am able to successfully set them up and marry them off!! WoooHoooo!!!! Fabulous feeling like no other...!! I am grateful for the incredible opportunity!! What a zechut... each time! smile emoticonMeanwhile, thank you to each of you who have made my network what it is today... absolute awesomeness!!! You make the difference. You. You are making the world a better place. Each time you spread the word about what I do...by telling your friends, by LIKING, offering COMMENTS of encouragement and by SHARING my posts... it energizes me to do more... every day is another day that I could make so many people happy! BH 5 happily married couples and hundreds to go!!! All religious and All secular level couples... All ages... All around the world! Let's build our Jewish Future! Let's keep doing this... Happy dating!!! :)smile emoticon Oh... and btw-- for all of you who are interested in knowing how this developed... I definitely didn't plan on doing this in my life... but as you'll see in my story below how and why I've taken on this tremendous responsibility and am working hard on a daily basis to facilitate Happy Jewish Couples and Jewish Continuity... read how it all began here... below:http://marriagearchitect.com/about-daniella‪ #‎MarriageArchitect ‬‪#‎NetworkingforSingles ‬‪#‎JewishContinuity ‬‪#‎JewishSingles‬ ‪#‎Ilovewhatido ‬‪#‎JewishDating‬ #ROI http://marriagearchitect.com/mazal-tov-engagements-and-weddings

Fun Date Ideas in Jerusalem Guest Blogger: @FunInJerusalem

Thank you to @FunInJerusalem Joanna Shebson for this awesome guest blog about dating ideas in Jersusalem! :) Thank you, @RealJStreets for helping to make this happen!! :) You rock! :) 

There is no better place to date then in Jerusalem. Whether you like to take your dates out for coffee, dinner or just spend time getting to know one another while you have some fun, Jerusalem is the place to do it.

As the editor of Fun In Jerusalem, I am usually focused on inspiring family fun but many of the ideas and activities are also great for singles looking to impress their dates. You can be sure when you offer these activities as options, your date will already give you extra points for creativity.

Want a fun way to see how your potential partner thinks? Challenge them to a Puzzle Quest and see how they react under pressure and if they know how to think out of the box. Remember they will be watching you as well. The game lasts 60 minutes unless you solve the clues even faster. If a second date is on the horizon, then spend your followup date at the Jerusalem Escape Room to extend the fun.

ZuZu Zoo Datehttp://i1.wp.com/www.funinjerusalem.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/ZuZu-Zoo-Date.jpg?w=700

Tired of meeting for drinks or food and want to show a date that you know how to have fun? Take them on a Segway Tour of The Old City or Yemin Moshe. Segway is the most modern form of transportation and the tour is entertaining and fun. You will have plenty of time to chat in between stops and after the ride.

Taking a date on a Tasting Tour of the Shuk is a great way to learn about what your date likes and what they don’t. Are they fascinated by the smells & spices at Pereg that remind them of home or do they gravitate towards the spiritual stories at the Etrog Man? If you want to extend the date and don’t mind spending some cash, then arrange a private cooking workshop with a local chef in Mahane Yehuda at Shem Tov Cafe. One thing is for sure, make sure to stop into Shem Tov Cafe for an amazing Sachlav.

For a uniquely Jerusalem idea, take your date on a PhotoWalk with the Real Jerusalem Streets Blogger This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. She will teach you how to photograph some of Jerusalem’s most well known views. No experience required. The walk can take you through the beautiful cobblestone streets of Yemin Moshe and it can be a great way to “capture the moment.”

Last on my list for Fun Dates in Jerusalem – Part 1 is my personal favorite date spot; the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo. My husband and I had one of our first dates there and spent hours walking around the beautiful grounds. We even have some nice pictures to show for it. Tip: there is also a new Segway ride in the Zoo if you want to add fun to the date.

Have some fun in Jerusalem and make the most out of getting to know someone special in this special city!

My "List" - What I want in a spouse

Share this post
FaceBook  Twitter  

 

A girl once asked me: " I know... I have such a long list for what I want in a guy... I know I need to shorten the list. Daniella, what should I take off my list?"
I answered: "Nothing. When you meet 'your guy' you will know what you will need to take off the list. Then... make sure to take it off the list." 

Clearly, I wouldn't suggest compromising on your core values. I am referring to the things like his looks, his background or education, perhaps you always wanted a guy with a sense of humor and he just doesn't have one. But he is good to you, kind, refined and has everything else that you are looking for in a husband.

Just realize: the key is to be realistic and loving towards your partner in life.

Lower your expectations. Increase your love. Give.

If both of you understand how to do this, then you will lead a mutually beneficial and happy life together. More about Marriage Architect tips and techniques This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
