What makes LongIslandMatchmaking.com different? First off  Perhaps you have had enough of the misleading – and very exposed – never ending searching and dishonest profiles associated with most of the online dating services, or you're just tired of how much time it takes. Maybe you're too busy to meet new people outside your general network of friends, or you just don't want to date them. You might be picky and haven't been meeting other quality, relationship-minded men or woman, you've always dreamed of meeting.

The desire for that special human connection and a significant other hasn’t waned during the pandemic but has actually increased tremendously. Singles, some for the first time, are turning to matchmakers and dating services even as virtual dating becomes the norm. This year when the usual ways of meeting people vanished and the pandemic took over our "social lives" or eliminated it completely, Long Island Matchmaking turned to virtual dating. Really just a continuation of what we are already doing for our clients with one extra caveat, we do all of our introductions and photo shoots on hikes, safely, and one on one outdoors.

Our company has had record numbers of lonely singles looking for someone to enrich their lives, reach out to us for our professional coaching, content creation, introductions, and assistance. Dating in the age of COVID-19 is simpler in some ways, yet in addition to the regular fear of rejection, there’s now also the fear of infection. That does not mean that people are not dating, it just means we are doing so with a little more distance between us.

Long Island Matchmaking is a luxury dating service for commitment-minded singles based in Long Island and we are busier than ever this year, with another marriage taking place so just a few weeks go. People are taking a good look at their lives and many have reassessed things in their lives, and realize that relationships are their number one priority.

Local public health experts are not discouraging people from dating as long as they do it safely. Everything we do has risks and benefits. It’s completely reasonable to date if the benefits, such as social interaction, outweigh the risks, such as underlying medical conditions. Loneliness can be a major concern for many who are alone during the pandemic.

Health experts recommend virtual dating as the safest way for people to engage with each other, especially for singles who have health conditions. It’s also a way to learn about potential partners routines and interactions, given we are in the tail end of a once in a century pandemic.

Lust is governed by both estrogen and testosterone, in both men and women. Attraction is driven by adrenaline, dopamine, and serotonin—the same chemicals that are released by exciting, novel experiences. Long-term attachment is governed by a very different set of hormones and brain chemicals—oxytocin and vasopressin, which encourage bonding. Interestingly, oxytocin is known as the cuddle hormone, and is the hormone that drives the bond between mother's and their children. Each of these chemicals works in a specific part of the brain to influence lust, attraction and attachment.

Dating can be stressful. It’s only natural to worry about how you’ll come across and whether or not your date will want to continue dating you. But no matter how shy or anxious you feel, you can overcome your nerves and self-consciousness and forge great connections. Never self medicate or drink too much on your dates. Be honest if you are nervous and share with your date that you are excited about the opportunity the relationship is presenting and how you feel.

A matchmaking service takes the personal drudgery out of dating by utilizing the benefits of a matchmaker's team. By working together the searching for interesting, attractive, age appropriate, individuals becomes a team effort and more productive. Just as you might use a personal trainer to get in shape or a financial planner to improve your retirement, Long Island singles outsource their dating lives to Long Island matchmakers.
