My name is Leora Hoffman, and I’m a matchmaker. I serve the Washington DC area as well as Baltimore, Eastern Shore, and anything within driving distance of Washington, DC.
The Premiere DC Matchmaker for Baby Boomers and Seniors
My specialty is serving Baby Boomers and Seniors. The only criteria are whether somebody wants to be in a loving relationship and want to invest in that direction. People who have built careers already raised their children and are now at a point in their lives where they want to start a new chapter with a new partner. I don’t rule anything out as long as people have that capability and that motivation.
People are living much longer, healthier lives these days. They don’t want a past divorce or the loss of a spouse or a partner to stand in the way of their future happiness. If somebody comes to me at age 60, they could feasibly have 30 good years with somebody.
“I See Myself as an Advocate for my Clients”
It’s really understanding somebody’s needs being able to give them meaningful advice, encouragement, direction, focus, and also the coaching that is so critical when it comes to matchmaking.
Really when you consider the odds and all the difficulties and challenges of people really falling in love and having it last, when it happens, it’s so rare and special. And that is why it needs to be celebrated and encouraged because a lot of people don’t understand how to parlay a good relationship into a lifelong loving relationship.
So I’m about helping people go through all the stages from the initial meeting and having that morph into committed, deep love. That takes time. That takes a skillset. And I pride myself on the interventions that I’ve done over the years to make that happen for people. it’s so much more than just giving people a name and a number. It’s really helping them see, really see and appreciate what the other person brings to the table because we can’t always see it ourselves.
What are My Next Steps?
I’m old-fashioned in the sense that I want to get on the phone with people. I get a feel for their specific circumstances. I get a sense of whether they are somebody who would be appropriate for my network, either as a member of my pool or as an active client whom I would be representing. Once I sit down with someone, I am in a much better position to get a feel for what they’re all about… get a complete history, a relationship history, and a personal history. Everyone’s a new puzzle waiting to be solved and every match is a new dynamic.
I think there’s something for everyone in my membership, every budget, and every type of need out there. As long as somebody wants to be in a committed relationship I don’t rule anything out. To learn more about Leora Hoffman, go to LeoraHoffman.com
