The World Health Organization recently changed their language from “social distancing” to “physical distancing” when they realized this was the wrong message. They want people to connect with friends and family for their mental well being. We know it is more important than ever for people to check in on loved ones who are isolated.
We have a lot of time on our hands to remember old friends and loved ones we haven’t spoken to in awhile.
Since most of us are home it’s a great time to reach out and check in. It is uplifting for our confined social spirit to get a phone call from an old friend out of the blue or a welcome text from a long lost family member. Being on the proactive end of this and initiating those calls is a spiritual tonic these days. You remember the old ad “Reach out and touch someone”. You’ll be glad you did.
We are learning what is most important to us right now.
There has been a huge paradigm shift in the way the world is functioning and it’s put a microscope on matters of the heart. It has become crystal clear that our relationships are more important to us than anything else in life. We are learning more about ourselves and reflecting more, sleeping more, cooking more, going for more walks and hopefully connecting a lot more.
Some of us are with family. Some of us are quarantined alone. But that doesn’t mean you have to feel alone. Especially not with today’s technology.
Humane Societies and rescue centers have found their facilities nearly empty for the first time as people find a need for a fuzzy companion while they wait this out even if they are only fostering for the moment.
Here at Kelleher International we have risen to the moment with new virtual dating opportunities, virtual parties and new ways to match our clients. Dating is NOT dead.
In fact, as single people find themselves alone in their homes, the desire for a partner is greater than ever. This is also a great opportunity to get to know someone at a deeper level before taking that leap into a physical relationship.
Jill Kelleher described a recent conversation with one of our clients. “Charles was so grateful for the chance to connect through Kelleher Virtual Date. He said he gained so much confidence in using the technology after he was coached by his matchmaker that he is reaching out to family and friends all over the country. He said he hadn’t felt this connected to them in years!”
Don’t be afraid to reach out to someone because you haven’t spoken to them in a while … the timing is more perfect than you think!
There is nothing to lose, and so much to gain. Hang in there everyone. We will get there. And we may arrive with a few new friends or reconnect with some old ones. You may even find that ideal partner you’ve been searching for!
We are happy to help you find your next connection. Reach out to us at Kelleher International
