Who: Peter (62) from Weeki Wachee, FL and Rebecca (69) from Brighton, Michigan When: They met on May 8th Where: Cafe Zola (2:30) & The Earle Downtown (7:30) in Ann Arbor, Michigan How: It took a couple of weeks to find a convenient date for Peter to fly out to meet Rebecca as he had some work deadlines. We also simultaneously obtained her dates of availability. During the introduction process, the Matchmaking Team mentioned to Peter that Rebecca enjoyed going out dancing. Peter asked us to find out what level of dance Rebecca was at and her favorite dance style. He wanted to incorporate a dance lesson to the concierge and hopefully go out dancing after dinner. Rebecca provided the best location for them to meet since where she lives is very remote. Before their evening together, Rebecca actually came to the Valenti Estate and spoke with Ms. Irene for some coaching. They decided she would get a limo and be dressed up and greet him at the airport. The driver would open the door and have her come out of the limo and greet him. We made reservations for them to meet for lunch, then dinner and dancing. Peter had called the restaurant ahead of time to have flowers delivered to the restaurant and request a special table. They had the most incredible time together and they had to postpone dancing because they just couldn’t stop talking to each other! Their introduction was perfection. Rebecca’s Feedback: “I must tell you that I was absolutely delighted to meet and spend time with Peter. Our time together was beyond my wildest dreams. What a wonderful human being he is. Your arrangements were superb! I met him in my town car at the airport, where I stepped out and welcomed him to Michigan, and thanked him for coming. We talked very comfortably all the way from the airport to our luncheon destination. From there we went on to Cafe Zola. It was yummy and we continued to talk and get to know each other. We were so engrossed in conversation that at around 5:30 the wait staff asked us if we would mind being moved to another table so that they could set up for dinner. We laughed that we had “closed up the place.” I offered to drop him at his hotel for a little quiet time and a chance to freshen up before dinner. Instead he said he preferred to spend more time with me, so we went on to my home to visit. After meeting and talking to him I was, to my surprise, perfectly comfortable doing this. We were so avidly into conversation that I had to call to make our dinner reservation later twice because we were enjoying our conversation so much. It was hard to break away from our conversation so that could change and freshen up for dinner! When we arrived at the restaurant, the Maitre D ushered us to a wonderful quiet table by the wall, and luckily a trio was still playing. On the table was a beautiful huge deep rose colored peony in a crystal bowl, and on the table was a small florists box with delicate gossamer lavender ribbon and a card that said, “Rebecca.” I was blown away to say the least. I couldn’t believe my eyes. He had no time to make all these arrangements as we had been together ALL DAY. I couldn’t believe it. It had all been planned in advance. We kept talking avidly and we stayed until after the whole restaurant had cleared and there were no more diners or wait staff there and we had not even noticed!!! Though it was really late we continued to talk and enjoy each other’s company when we got back to his hotel to drop him there. By the time we parted it was 2:00am. And it was hard to part but we were both very tired. Steven asked me to call after I got home, though I knew that he was totally exhausted, so that he would know that I got home safely. I couldn’t believe what a gentleman he is and how kind and thoughtful and gracious he is. We spent all of the next day and evening together still totally enraptured with each other’s company. What an amazing human being he is. I have never been treated with such consideration and kindness in my life, and I felt like we had such emotional simpatico. I can’t thank you enough for all your efforts to help me find the love of my life. I think that we have lots of possibilities. I look forward to hearing from him again and we still have much to share with each other. Steven said that he thought that it would take a year for us to get through all the things we would like to share with each other and do together. This last weekend has been the most amazing and enjoyable weekend of my life. Words can’t express how much I thank you for introducing us. I am in awe, and quite star-struck. I never expected there was any chance it would go like that and I am so very grateful for all your efforts. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!!!!!” -Rebecca Peter’s Feedback: Irene spoke with Peter to gather his feedback regarding Rebecca. He said it was great in every way – he had an amazing weekend. He said to Irene, “If my life ended today, I would be happy.” He wants to see her again and will be calling her today to make arrangements.
