MARRIED 4_14_1

MARRIED!
I had been looking for a Matchmaker to work with for sometime, but did not feel comfortable with the “slick style” of the many I contacted. When I met Julianne I was immediately impressed by her kindness and sincerity. I could tell she was a true professional who had a keen understanding of who I was and who I wanted to meet. I was pleasantly surprised to find the second person Julianne introduced me to was my perfect Match.

MARRIED!
“Thank you Julianne for your loving guidance and expertise. You gave me the confidence and courage needed to step out of my comfort zone and find love again. I now know great love in my forties is possible along with being cherished by a good man. I never before had this in my life. Your expert coaching helped me hone in on what was truly important leading the way to meeting the man of my dreams who I honestly believe is my soul mate. Julianne, I am forever grateful!!

MARRIED!
After spending over half my life with my husband, I found myself suddenly single and bewildered when my marriage fell apart. I’d never dated as an adult and didn’t know where to begin. Julianne’s coaching provided the empathetic guidance and gentle pushing I needed. I worked with her profile writer who crafted a well-written online profile and her photographer’s pictures were beautiful and tasteful. As a result of her work, I went on dates with several men who all met my criteria. I listened to her wise and thoughtful coaching. She never steered me in the wrong direction- I actually had fun dating! But one man stood out. Thanks to Julianne I have found my soul mate! I am forever grateful, Julianne! Thank you!

What can I say?  Without a doubt, my experience with Julianne has been priceless. I turned 40 years old and I was still single. I am a professional woman with a fulfilling career, but I knew that I wanted to get married and have children.  I had engaged online dating without any success over the years.  On top of that I didn't feel like I was making good decisions when it came to the men I was dating. So, on a whim I contacted Julianne looking for a matchmaker.  After our discussion I realized what I actually needed was date coaching. Truthfully, I had never heard of date coaching before, but took a leap of faith and decided at worst I would learn skills I could apply to future relationship(s). I went into the coaching process with an open mind and let Julianne guide me. She took me out of my comfort zone, taught me to identify positive relationship behaviors and kept me moving forward. Julianne was firm with her rules, but always listened with an empathetic ear.  My second date was with the love of my life.  He is truly my soul mate.  Our relationship is truly effortless and I can't wait to see what our future holds.  Had I not worked with Julianne I know I never would have met him.  Thank you Julianne!

Working with Julianne was truly the best decision of my life. I reached out to Julianne after reading about her in a local magazine. I never thought of myself as someone who needed coaching, never mind date coaching!!! I was confident that I had it all together and it was actually the men who were the problem!!! As a very successful businesswoman I took pride in being able to engage all types of people, men and women alike. However, in my dating life I found I was not attracting the type of men I thought I deserved. Julianne helped me step out of my comfort zone and encouraged me to be open to the possibilities of what could be. Over and over again, Julianne helped me create a clear vision of the type of relationship I wanted and as she said, “deserved”. All the while reminding me that the vision of the man I had in my head might be different than who I ultimately meet. And in the end she was absolutely right! I am now in the healthiest relationship of my life and I couldn't be happier.

If you are ready to meet the love of your life and willing to be open to her coaching, Julianne will completely and fully guide you with her tough love balanced by her compassion. Julianne will be your guide, your mentor and a your biggest advocate!

Julianne provided a mix of Matchmaking and Relationship Coaching that has been invaluable. At 42, never married, I couldn’t figure out how to attract the right one. Not only did Julianne introduce me to “the one” she helped me navigate the relationship making sure it was successful. Michelle is the best thing that’s ever happened to me and I can’t wait to start our life together. Thank you Julianne!

L. R. 47_1After coming out of yet another unhealthy relationship, the thought of going back to online dating was depressing and overwhelming. Knowing I couldn’t do the same thing again and expect different results, something had to change. Julianne came into my life at just the right time — when I was ready —and I’m so happy she did!!  I have nothing but praise and thankfulness for Julianne!

From the beginning, Julianne was with me every step of the way. From her in-depth assessment —which forced me to look within and take a personal inventory —to the pre and post dating calls, I felt as if I had a friend, confidant, and therapist who had my back on this emotional dating journey. Not to mention a Public Relations manager who set me apart from everyone else online. Starting on day one, I had more responses than ever, and all commented about my fantastic profile and pictures. Julianne helped me sort through this overwhelming pile to find the “quality” guys who really are still out there. Over the several months we worked together, Julianne helped me to realize finding love can be a process that takes time — not easy for this instant gratification kind of girl!! She wasn’t afraid to tell it like she saw it, and pushed me to date men I may not have in the past. With her guidance, I was able to get out of my own way so I could see what was really important in a long-term relationship. She consistently ingrained in me that I deserved to be happy and to have a relationship where I felt cherished, loved and adored! And for the first time in my life, I have found that!!! I would not trade this experience for the world.

I whole-heartedly recommend working with Julianne. Her coaching, knowledge and advice are priceless!

L.G. 52_1When I first spoke with Julianne I sensed very strongly her profound kindness, patience and sincerity. As we got to know each other and work together, I came to feel as though she was my guide and mentor in a land that was unfamiliar and scary to me but well known and comfortable to her, aka "the modern dating world." Julianne never wavered in her staunch support of my personal dating journey and me. Her advice was invaluable and I remember thinking many times, "Wow, I wish I had known this all of this years ago."

I am thrilled to report I am now in a relationship, which is more wonderful than anything I could have imagined. Ironically, the man I am with fits none of the criteria, which I set for dating. Throughout our coaching Julianne would always remind me to “be open, because we never know who will be your perfect match” and she was absolutely right!

Thank you, Julianne. I know for certain that I would not be where I am in my life right now if it weren't for you. I never imagined I would find my soul mate!

At the urging of a friend I took a leap and decided to look for a local matchmaker. I found Julianne online and decided to meet with her. In the end the experience was better than I ever expected. I didn't think it was possible to find love again, but I am now dating the love of my life and I’m finally excited about the future.

I met Julianne at an event in the Spring of 2013. I never thought I would need her services. I kept her card and reached out to two years later. Julianne has a way about her that lets you know she is your advocate. I could tell she wanted nothing more than to help me find love in my life. She listened carefully to my criteria and even identified criteria that she thought would be good for me in a partner that I had never thought about before. Julianne has introduced me to Janice, a wonderful woman I never would have met on my own.

M.C. 46_1I reached out to Julianne prior to moving from Chicago to New Jersey.  Being new to the area and in my forties, I wanted help navigating the dating scene.  I haven’t always made the best choices in my romantic relationships, and I would jokingly ask my friends to pick someone for me.  Working with Julianne was like having that close friend who really understands you inside and out, to help you to find a great match.  I have never dated so much in my life and, in the past, I would find someone “good enough” and spend the next few months/years with him.  Julianne helped me get out of my comfort zone and take my time to explore many options that I would never before have considered.  In fact, I met a wonderful man who is someone I would not have gone on a first date with had I been approaching this process on my own.  Julianne helped me figure out what I really wanted in a relationship (which weren’t the main things that I initially thought that I wanted) and she had me date people long enough to see their behavior over time before I entered into a relationship.  Julianne is brilliant, respectful, open-minded, direct, generous with her time and compassionate.  I am very grateful for her help in this process, and for the relationship skills I learned from her.  Thank you Julianne!

Having Julianne as my coach has really transformed my approach to dating.  Julianne is really sharp and exceptional in her keen understanding of what it takes to find and cultivate a meaningful relationship.  I got a wake-up call in my narrow approach of selecting only certain types of men.  Julianne inspired me to stretch my boundaries and be more open-minded.  She helped me create a great online profile and get beautiful professional pictures taken.  From there, Julianne patiently guided me through the entire communication process, from online to offline interactions.  Which are both so crucial in making or breaking dating opportunities. I’ve learned so much about myself in this process and it’s profoundly helped me in my approach to meeting quality, serious-minded men.  I was able to regularly touch base with Julianne and she provided great insight on my dates.  Julianne is a warm individual who truly wants her clients to be successful in meeting the one.  She’s gone above and beyond in helping me.  Thank you Julianne!!!

I came out of a 7-year relationship and could not picture myself dating again. After taking some time off I figured it was time to get back into the dating game. After almost a year of doing it on my own with limited success I decided to seek the services of a professional. Julianne gave me the confidence and support I needed throughout the process. She introduced me to quality women who were serious about having a relationship too. I am now dating someone seriously who Julianne introduced to me. I would recommend using Julianne, New Jersey’s Matchmaker to anyone who is looking to find a quality partner. Thank you Julianne!

Julianne, I want to thank you for your advice, assistance and guidance throughout the process of my returning to the dating world.  I have to say that I have grown so much through this experience and I would like to tell you that I am dating my perfect match!

It was absolutely amazing the number of quality suitors that reached out to me online. I can say with out hesitation I did not have one bad date! You taught me to be selective, set limits and boundaries and imparted information I need to use the dating websites in a manner that helped me find the right gentleman.  You were always there to guide me and provided much needed encouragement when I became overwhelmed with the journey. Thank you so much for everything. Your guidance and support throughout this process has been priceless!

It’s hard to be young and single in New Jersey. I work in NYC, and didn't find the dating scene convenient. I turned to Julianne for her matchmaking and I am very glad I did. Caite and I have been dating six months now and are talking about our future. Thank you Julianne for a job well done!

Michelle Marketing DirectorAfter 20 years of marriage, I suddenly found myself single. As a successful professional and Mom living in a rural area of New Jersey, online dating was my only option. After several months of amusing but unsuccessful dating, I sought out a coach. Julianne is incredible. She instantly reassured me that it is possible to meet an accomplished gentleman and that more importantly, I deserved love and happiness. She explained the power of quality photography and a well-crafted profile. The results were immediate; I had more matches than I had time in the beginning. But with Julianne’s guidance via our weekly calls, I had the skills to identify if the matches were going to be a fit. She coached me on how to evaluate profiles, have that initial call and some tips for dating as well. What I really appreciated is Julianne’s “tough love”. She challenged me to look deep on what was important and always pushed me forward. Although I met many quality men along the way, it was due to her pushing me to continue to date that I met my match. Thanks to Julianne’s coaching, I am where I wanted to be, in a loving and committed relationship. Thank You Julianne, for giving me fabulous dating coaching and life-long skills!

I had tried a dating service that was a true disappointment. Then I decided to take another chance and I contacted Julianne. I liked Julianne’s style; she was very clear and didn’t tell me things she thought I wanted to hear. She really listened and I’ve met someone special. Thank you Julianne for the wonderful introduction to Mindy. She is a special woman and we couldn’t be happier.

If it wasn’t for Julianne I would still be single. My dream has always been to find someone special and fall in love. I honestly thought it would just happen naturally; it was happening that way for all of my friends. One, by one they were getting married and I had more special occasion dressed than I cared to own. I turned 29 and called Julianne. I had already gone down the date coaching road before, but I believed Julianne had something else to offer. AND I WAS RIGHT. Julianne ALWAYS had the answers. Knowing she was behind me with her expertise gave me the confidence I needed to succeed. Almost two years later I am still in love with Jeff, he has all the qualities I was searching for in a man. He is my soul mate! The future is clear and we are talking about marriage.

I have done a lot of dating in my life, and although I never had a problem meeting women, I haven’t been able to meet the right one. Julianne worked with me to help me understand what I was looking for in a wife and partner. I am now dating the “right one.”

Julianne I can’t believe this has happened! I never thought I would feel this way again. N. is understanding and caring and so far, the “healthiest” man I have ever encountered. Our relationship is effortless and we really enjoy our time together. Thank you for all your help and guidance. Your coaching made this journey fun and easy. I am so happy to be in love again!

Tom 45 Engineer_1Having just come out of a 10-year relationship, the thought of dating was unnerving in many ways. It was clear I was having a hard time understanding women, but with Julianne’s professional insights and advice, I was able to determine if the perfect woman existed for me. Julianne is a consummate professional and yet, her personal style made me feel as if she was the sister I never had. Julianne takes the time to listen and offer real world womanly perspectives on actions and words. Our decisions determine our destiny. By working with Julianne, and being guided by her coaching my destiny is clear: I am engaged and will be married in a few short months time. Thank you Julianne!

I wish I called New Jersey’s Matchmaker sooner. After meeting with her and finding out that she was a therapist I instantly understood why Julianne was so good at matchmaking. She gets people and she definitely got me. She has introduced me to the type of women that I was not finding on my own.

Toni 46 Art Therapist_1Hello Julianne! I am writing to you with wonderful news! I am planning my wedding! Pete and I will be married in 2014 and I couldn’t have done it without you. Clearly your coaching was what I needed and the pictures taken by your photographer were awesome. Thank you for helping me move out of my comfort zone, create opportunity and yes, try online dating. Who knew I would meet someone as wonderful as Pete online, he turned out to be exactly what I was looking for!
Thank you Julianne.

Julianne was recommended to me through a mutual acquaintance. I am divorced and was not really looking for marriage, but a committed relationship. Julianne went to work right away and introduced me to someone who wanted to the same things I wanted. I am very happy with the service she has provided.

D 46 Paralegal_1I had been online for years with no success. Then I met Julianne. She was giving a workshop on dating and the Internet. I was struck by the amount of experience and knowledge she had on the subject. When she showed the before and after pictures of her current clients and explained the success they were having I knew I had to work with her. From day one Julianne made the coaching process fun and easy. Not only did she explain what I should and should not wear to the photo shoot with her photographer, but she came to the photo shoot to make sure all went well. After a careful selection of appropriate dating sites I uploaded my new pictures and newly written profile. I was shocked by the immediate positive response I had. During our weekly coaching sessions Julianne guided me through the dating process, helping me uncover and move past behaviors that once would have sabotaged my relationship. Since I started working with Julianne things have changed greatly for me. I don’t just think about dating, I am dating and have even met someone special!

My experience of working with Julianne has been nothing but exceptional. She is a true lady, professional and classy. In the past I worked with a local NJ dating service and was greatly disappointed. When I contacted Julianne, I thought it was going to be more of the same. To my surprise I found New Jersey’s Matchmaker offered so much more. Julianne took the time to meet with me personally; she got to know me and really listened to what I was looking for in a match. I decided to work with Julianne and I am very happy that I did. I am now dating someone very lovely that she has introduced to me.

J.A. 49 Nurse Practitioner_1On an intellectual level I knew it was the right time to get back in the dating scene, but on an emotional level the fear was paralyzing. I had started to look for a Matchmaker / Dating Coach when I found that Julianne was presenting a Dating workshop in my town and that was where I met her. I knew immediately that she understood my fear and anxiety around dating. I knew she was the hand that I needed to walk me through the process. Her professional insight motivated me to break down the barriers that I had created and she encouraged me to open myself up to new possibilities. Above all, through this experience I felt that I was more than a client. She was caring, considerate and always had my best interest in mind. This is not just a business to Julianne, this is her calling. I suggest don’t try it alone, call Julianne!

— J.A., 49, Nurse Practitioner
(New Jersey’s Matchmaker Date Coaching Client met her match online.)

I have a high profile job and did not want to use the online dating sites. I travel extensively for my business and I have little time to devote to meeting someone. Matchmaking was the perfect solution for me. Julianne’s ability to understand my situation made the process easy and stress free. I would recommend Julianne to anyone who was looking to meet a quality match.

Mona 53 Occupational Therapist_1I knew I had to make a change, because what I was doing wasn’t working. I realized my dating skills were very rusty and I seemed to meet one wrong man after another. I was not getting any results on line and wasn’t sure where or how to meet a quality man. Truthfully, I had no idea what a healthy relationship looked like. Then I met Julianne, and all that changed. I found out about her Find LOVE Now! program, I took a leap and signed on. Julianne personally guided me through every step. Although, I used a professional photographer in the past for my online photos they were really not the quality we needed. My first step was professional photos with her photographer and a spruced up profile. The change was immediate; I got many more emails than ever before. She coached me to get out there, become more social and stay the course. She even connected me with appropriate singles events for my age and interests. It was at one of the singles events that Julianne recommended, that I met a quality man who I am currently still dating. It was not easy to get out there after working all day and taking care of a house and family, but with Julianne’s coaching it ultimately paid off. I am glad that I could follow through and be successful.

When I contacted Julianne I had no idea what to expect. A friend of a friend recommended that I contact Julianne for her Matchmaking Services. Julianne has a way about her that is genuine and non-judgmental. She really listens and her approach to matchmaking is spot on. I have been extremely happy with the type of women Julianne has introduced to me.

Susan 74 Retired Accountant_1I had been happily married for 48 years when my husband died. I was 73 and widowed for 4 years when I decided I needed more from life. I wanted the excitement that a relationship could bring, but didn’t know where to begin or how to get myself out there again. I tried different ways to meet men that didn’t work, so I thought I would give online dating a try. However, I had no idea where to begin. I lacked the knowledge and information needed to get myself online. I had not dated in half a century and lacked the confidence that I could still attract a man, but I wanted to give it my best shot. Then I learned about Julianne and her Boutique Business. When I heard all the wonderful services she offered and how she would hold my hand through the process of getting out there again I knew I had found my answer. Through her coaching Julianne guided me through the dating process, giving me direction and answers. She provided me with support and encouragement. She wrote an inviting profile and clearly outlined the most appropriate dating sites for my situation. I worked with her Photographer who was very charming and the pictures were beautiful. Julianne gave me advice about what to wear and came to the shoot to ensure I would have the best results. The Photo Shoot was never rushed and many pictures were taken to provide a broad variety for the final selection. In the end I have had wonderful results and have been dating many interesting men. Working with Julianne was the best decision I have ever made. She has given me assurance to move forward with confidence. In the end I have found there are many sincere, interesting men out there worth meeting and I am having a lot of fun!

I am very pleased with the coaching Julianne has given me. I was searching for help and guidance in my dating life. I am divorced and have not dated since I was 22. I lacked knowledge and direction and she knew exactly how to help me. Julianne has the experience and expertise to help anyone who is lacking the confidence, knowledge or courage to explore the dating world alone. I would recommend Julianne as a relationship expert 100% to friends, family or anyone who wants to date confidently and find their true soul mate.
