The Matchmaker of Maine is a personalized matchmaking service servicing all of Maine and New Hampshire.
They call Kirkland’s Marina Lavochin, a 34-year-old dating coach who swears she can turn bumbling, single coders into effective daters. “I like teaching skills.” The awkward singles of Seattle are of a type, she says: “They can’t lead, they’re so uncertain.” Lavochin idolized James Bond in her Russian childhood and tries to impart the same swagger in her clients.
Her three-month program—a ,000 package—begins when clients take personality tests.
He eventually revealed he was there helping this guy pick up women. We had a ton in common and after just one date I thought, "I really like him." At the time, it didn't occur to me that his charisma could be a result of his job. They’d fly in from all over the US and Eastern Europe, then go out every single night searching for women under Eric and/or Jeff’s wing. If Eric wasn’t physically attractive, I truly don’t think he'd be successful at his job.
Eric was a dating coach and co-owned a "coaching" business with his friend. I was definitely taken aback and thought about walking away. While dating Eric, what was the weirdest experience you had relating to his work? The coaches were teaching Lenny, an awkward 50-year-old man, how to pick up women on the street. I grew tired of watching, so I went back to his place to get some sleep; around 4am, I woke up to the voices of Eric, his client, and a group of girls in the living room.
He introduced himself as Eric and we began talking. Eric directly asked if my friends were hot and single because otherwise his business partner Jeff* wouldn’t come, which irked me. I wondered why would Eric choose a douchebag as a business partner in a line of work that revolves around impressing women. They all seemed like nice-enough guys, some far more awkward than others. After a few minutes, Eric walked over pretending to be the client’s real-life buddy and joined the convo.
He said he was there with a client, and I assumed Eric was a finance guy taking the client out for business drinks. Eric took me to a cozy wine bar and the date was incredible from start to finish. I was fascinated by his bizarre career and kept asking about it, but he kept trying to start deep life conversations. It eventually dawned on me that Jeff didn’t want me around because if Eric was with me, he wasn’t working. Part of the "coaching package" clients paid THOUSANDS of dollars for was staying in Eric and Jeff’s massive apartment. They did this over and over with different groups of women. It was hard not to get jealous because I literally had to stand back and watch my date hit on other women "for work." The girls always drooled over him and not the awkward clients.
At The Matchmaker of Maine it's all about getting results for you. Hi Ron, Thank you very much for matching me with Austin.
Although we've only met once, I felt an instant connection with him. There is no need, at this time, to send me any other profiles and I would like to place my membership inactive at this time.
They are out of school, trying to start a band, trying to find work — looking for something to do in the degraded terrain of their suburban hometown. As a freak winter storm bears down on an exclusive, affluent suburb in Connecticut, cars skid out of control, men and women swap partners, and their children experiment with sex, drugs, and even suicide.
Here two families, the Hoods and the Williamses, com face-to-face with the seething emotions behind the well-clipped lawns of their lives — in a novel widely hailed as a funny, acerbic, and moving hymn to a dazed and confused era of American life.
