The owner of Wilmington Matchmaker plays the middle man in this crazy little thing called love. When Sellers was seventeen years old, her family sought counseling and training at Premier Education in Florida and Georgia to help a family member who was going through a difficult time.
I saw people impacted in a short amount of time. My mother and I were able to connect and communicate. She wanted to be a facilitator at the school, but life happened, so she went back to what she knew — managing restaurants. I love every aspect of it. I love the interview part. I love the communication and the healing that happens that I learned through being a coach.
I like being there for every step of the dating process. No one is giving people a chance anymore. Those members are eligible candidates for clients to ask out. Sellers interviews each person face to face, including those in the database. She also does background checks. Rarely, people lie, she says. But, I may find her energy is not there, and they have a hard time connecting. Are they seeking changes in the future or are they happy where they are? I also want to see if they learned anything from it.
Do they blame the other person completely or do they know why it ended? After their sign-up date, clients typically have a date within the first week or two. Sellers writes a short bio on the date she chooses for her clients.
She also shows pictures but encourages people to not be judgmental. She also sets up the date for her clients, coordinating schedules and making arrangements so they walk in blind-date style. A feedback form is sent within twenty-four hours of the date, which also includes feedback for Sellers such as whether the process should be changed for them. Sellers encourages her clients to always go on another date with the same person.
