The Short Version: Many Philadelphia-area singles are busy professionals who are tired of connecting with people who aren’t compatible with them – that’s if they’re connecting with anyone at all. When those singles want to turn things around, they can visit Matchmaker and Dating Coach Kristi D. Price. She takes a holistic approach to happiness that helps men and women avoid toxic relationships, succeed in business, and live the life they love. In the future, she plans to branch out into speaking engagements, workshops, and retreats to help singles find their perfect mate.
According to the Harris Poll Survey of American Happiness, just 1 in 3 Americans say they’re happy. That is a slight increase from surveys done in previous years, but an eye-opening number nonetheless.
The study also showed that nearly 80% of people say they’re worried about their finances, and close to 50% of Americans worry about their health. Another 40% of survey respondents said they rarely engaged in hobbies and pastimes they enjoyed.
No wonder it’s so hard to find someone to date. If a dater is unhappy, he or she is going to have trouble relating to others, much less be able to share the joys of life and engage in fun activities.
That’s why Dating Coach and Matchmaker Kristi D. Price makes holistic happiness a significant part of the work she does with single men and women in the Philadelphia area. She takes the time to understand the individuals she works with on a deeper level, so she can make more successful matches.
And it works. A whopping 92% of people she’s introduced have found long-term relationships — some have even married.
“I was inspired to start my date coaching and matchmaking business to help others heal and embrace the future. After doing that, they can open their hearts and minds to healthy relationships in all areas of their life,” she said. “Once a person gets to a happier place, they can also have the loving relationship they desire with a partner.”
Kristi helps her clients understand that happiness often needs to come before love, not the other way around.
As a Wealth Manager, Certified Personal Trainer, Certified Life Coach, and even an Equestrian Trainer, Kristi said she’s been connecting and coaching her entire life. But she started to focus on romance after she went through a divorce. Back in the dating game, she jumped through all the hoops and created tools that worked for her.
“After my divorce, I made many mistakes in dating… but I have a sense of humor about my experiences and openly share my stories.” — Kristi D. Price, Dating Coach and Matchmaker
Kristi was so successful that she decided to share the lessons she has learned with others.
“After my divorce, I made many mistakes in dating — as well as in relationships — but I have a sense of humor about my experiences and openly share my stories,” she said. “One of the reasons I started my business was to help others avoid the painful mistakes I made. Relating to my clients motivates them to make the right choices and changes.”
Part of the work she does is to help women “unlearn” the bad advice they pick up from women’s magazines about how they should act. And she offers tools and tips for both men and women to understand their own needs better and find happiness worth sharing.
Kristi works with clients ranging in age from 25 to 60 — but they all have something in common: They’re seeking happiness.
“I choose to work with positive-minded, professional men and women who have a zest for life,” she said. “They are intellectually curious and passionate about creating a life they love. My clients appreciate my directness, honesty, willingness to help, and the fact that I have a light-hearted attitude. I truly believe that dating should be fun and enjoyable.”
Kristi works with 30 to 40 coaching clients a year, plus about 10 to 15 matchmaking clients.
“Many of my coaching clients are professionals who want insight on their careers — or want my team to help with team dynamics if their business isn’t meeting revenue goals,” she said. “I’m all about relationships and helping people show up as their best selves — both in their professional and personal lives.”
Most of Kristi’s matchmaking clients are professionally successful men who are searching for ‘ The One.”
“Let’s face it: Finding ‘The One’ isn’t easy. Most of us have been through life’s ups and downs, and have crashed and burned many times in the pursuit of true love,” she said. “I try to bring humanity to my business. I get to know my clients’ hearts, understand what truly inspires them about being with that special someone. Then I introduce them to women who share the same values, goals in life, and attitude toward love.”
Kristi’s straightforward, no-nonsense approach appeals to people who are serious about change but positive about the future, she added.
If she sets up a client on a date and it doesn’t work out, the client will receive honest and thoughtful feedback about what went well and what didn’t. That way, they can learn and improve in the future. A match may be perfect on paper, but sometimes the chemistry isn’t there.
Along with matchmaking and coaching services, Kristi offers luxury travel vacations for solo travel or romantic getaways.
“Vacations help people reconnect with their inner selves, their spouse or partner, and just revive and rejuvenate away from daily stresses in our lives — including fast-paced work environments,” she said. “Or, perhaps, they need healing and want a beautiful environment and experience to focus on taking care of themselves.”
Kristi said she’s planning to do more speaking engagements, workshops, and weekend retreats to teach others ways to create love in their lives and attract both the right people and opportunities.
That law-of-attraction style methodology has helped her achieve much success with her clientele.
“I love helping others, so when I get the call or email telling me how I’ve helped them create a life they love or meet the love of their life, it pulls on my heartstrings,” she said. “Coaching others is extremely rewarding to me, especially when I can help men and women realize their value.”
