I retained Christie Nightingale to be my matchmaker when she was part of Kelleher and Associates. I met with Christie and told her what my criteria were. She had no issue with anything that I said I was looking for, and seemed very enthusiastic about taking me on as a client.
My criteria was as follows. I did not wish to procreate children of my own, but was happy to be with a woman who had children from a prior relationship. I am allergic to cats and dogs, and cannot be around either animal. I also domicile in Florida for part of the year due to the state's positive tax structure, and spend the rest of the year in the Northeast. This was the extent of the list that I gave to Christie. I paid $8500.00
The only other issues that I mentioned are that earlier in my life I had done some big game hunting, and the ladies I meet should be accepting of this activity. I also told Christie that looks are very important to me.
The first two dates were to women who told me that they could never date a man who hunts, or has done any hunting. Where is the screening?
The biggest problem that I continuosly ran into with Christie was how physically unattractive the women were despite the continuous representations that they were beautiful. Christie told me that she was very well connected with the top modeling agencies in New York. I never met one woman who was a model. When I asked Christie about this she said that all of the models she had as clients wanted to have kids.
What I could not understand was why when I was clear about not wanting to have kids I would be introduced to women who wanted to have kids. It made no sense, and seemed to be very unprofessional. Of course, none of these women who wanted to have kids were models.
I would confront Christie about this, and Christie would have some absurd remark such as the woman never told her that she wanted to have kids. Where is the screening? I decided that the best plan was for me to ask the women before the date if they wanted to have kids. The greater majority of my introductions said that they wanted to have kids.
I would call Christie, and she would say do not talk about kids before you meet, and the woman will realize what a great guy I am and decide not to have kids. That is not how a woman is going to think. That belief is ridiculous
So here I was on a regular basis being introduced to women who wanted to have kids. Furthermore, The greater majority of the women I was introduced to had either a cat, or dog, or both.
I had one situation where a woman I was introduced to who wanted to have kids told me that Christie had stated that I have an apartment in New York City. I assure you that I do not. An outright deceitful statement.
I also want to add that I told Christie that gold diggers need not apply. I had several dates with women who were just that.
Finally I came to the conclusion that Christie was just using me as inventory to match women with. The introductions were not being based on any of my criteria, but I was just being sent out on dates where there had been no screening. In other words what service was Christie providing besides sending me on dates? Nothing. I just do not see how Christie was matchmaking.
I once told Christie that I was not particularly close with my family.
After close to three years of being used as inventory, and being sent on pointless dates I sent Christie an e-mail about how the best definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and hoping for a different result. I was tired of meeting women who were unattractive, wanted kids, and had pets. Christie had a simple response. Why would any woman want to be involved with me since I am estranged from my family? And that statement says it all about Christie Nightingale, and her company.
