Let’s be realistic about dating conversation. There’s no perfect conversation when getting to know one another. We believe the magic happens on every journey. The little pauses, the nervous laughter and a mutual chat momentum that ultimately helps both of you find relaxation in each other’s company.
Experts say that people form their first impressions of you in just 3 seconds. Of course, one of the first things that immediately grabs someone’s attention is your outlook. How you visually represent yourself speaks volumes, in those precious seconds counting down to a first impression.
Every moment is fleeting. Within moments of a meeting, people make up their minds about you, from societal status to intelligence. The ability that enables people to find patterns in behaviour, appearance, speech, etc is called “thin slicing”. This particular concept was made popular by best-selling author Malcom Gladwell in his book, Blink.
Have you wondered if you’ve made a positive impact on certain so-and-so’s you chanced on meeting along the way? Well, we are here to blow those uncertainties away. You do have some control over how you can enhance those thin slices of perceptions about you, and we are here to dish out the good stuff.
Ready to find real love? Our CEO Joanne Ng talks to the Rojak Daily about making it happen.
First Classe Malaysia interviewed Joanne about her journey into matchmaking & running Datesmith.
How can a matchmaker be of any assistance in rekindling your love life? Our Dateworks certified matchmakers meet single individuals who have expressed their interest in dating, and use a personal touch to handpick and match clients, after running through a computerised algorithm to filter through match factors such as gender, age, race, religion…you get the idea.
What is a matchmaker, you ask? A matchmaker, usually a she, is the dating secretary who juggles your dating schedules, and it is also she who fine tunes your dating engine to purring capacity so that you and your date go along for a smooth ride. As it turns out on the Homo Erectus scale, it is women who tend to be the best listeners, put two and two together, and empathise with matters of the heart. It’s probably to our advantage that we do not sweep issues under the rug either, because that’s where dust bunnies go to die. To reach a resolution for any matter, we encourage clients to put their trust in us and outline any problem they may encounter at the time. We’re here to talk.
We're pleased to announce that we have appointed Joanne Ng as CEO, effective 1st Feb 2018. Joanne brings tremendous pedigree and energy in building and leading early stage companies. Our focus on scaling the business into a more mature organisation is well aligned with her previous experience. Please join us in welcoming Joanne to our organisation.
Imagine yourself in a specific situation during one of your daily routines. What was your expression then? Were you contented, or simply trying to get through the task at hand? If you were enjoying a bellyful of laughs then, give yourself a pat on the back. That probably means you encounter more positivity than the average urbanite in Malaysia.
Too many channels of communications have opened up for us in this age, so much so that many of us become entirely absorbed in multiple digital devices at a time in order to exact any feeling of fulfilment. What can change that, you ask? Get physical! In the very wise and catchy lyrics sung by Oliver Newton-John, we are needful of the physical touch - human company and a carefree moment or two that satiates our desires. Here are some suggestions from my collective memories and those of friends over the years that have served to tickle our funny bones.
