This article has been written from my experiences with my Matchmaking and Introductions agency, One2One Introductions.  So please don’t shoot the messenger. Also, I’m the original born again poacher turned gamekeeper. Now read on…. Mammy knows best. I blame Irish Mammies for it all. From the time we were Mommies Little Soldier we’ve been pampered, put on a pedestal and told that there’s “no one good enough for my son” and so we’ve grown up actually believing it. By the time we’re finished school and college and have entered the big bad world of commerce and earning a wage we’ve become so used to our elevated status in the natural pecking order of life that we tend to look at women as being “ONLY women” and “Sure what would THEY know anyway?

It has turned entertainment, retail and health industries from boom to bust and back again. But its biggest and most profound effect has been on the single (sic) biggest decision that most people will ever make—choosing that someone special. In those fast walking days of the 1990’s when people actually talked to each other, the idea of meeting a partner online seemed alien, freakish, sad, and not a little pathetic.
