Vancouver executive search dating
It seemed to me [that there was] one glaring omission from this, and it was our dating life.” Rice speaks from experience.
He returned to his native Vancouver in 2002 after 14 years studying and working abroad in Europe and Asia.
ESD was launched in September 2004, and Rice claims it now has 300-plus members, evenly distributed between men and women.
Dressed in a carefully tailored grey suit, pink shirt and blue tie, the six-foot-plus Rice looks more like a senior management professional than a modern-day yenta.
And, in fact, his former career in general management, operations and sales and marketing does seem a step removed from the traditionally female-run world of matchmakers.

This lonely heart has signed himself up with Executive Search Dating, one of the many new dating services that have opened doors in B. If a woman likes what she sees, they’ll agree to a meeting. The Yellow Pages now lists 30 entries under Introduction Services, about a quarter of which appeared in the last five years or less. It’s not a scenario that favours singles, given the lack of jobs in generously populated offices where workers rub shoulders all day long in the coffee room, elevator or hallway.
Go to the Better Business Bureau, Olsen On Your Side, CBC Marketplace and get my story out there and hope that whoever is considering joining Executive Search Dating to shop around first!A long-term relationship had just ended and he was eager to settle down and raise a family, but he quickly found the dating situation in the city to be abysmal.He tried bars, online dating, telephone chat lines and even signed up with a conventional matchmaking service.I offer Career Coaching, Professional Resume Writing, Career Assessments, Interview Preparation, Career Transition and Career Counselling services for both individuals and businesses. Joining internet dating services are probably better and less expensive then joining a personal matchmaking service.
You don’t have to get 20 minutes into it to realize, ‘Oh, you’re unemployed? Her reluctance proved warranted recently when Jack inadvertently spilled the beans at a dinner party with old friends. “They spent the entire evening ragging on me about it.” Her friends may now be in on her secret, but Esther has yet to reveal to her mother how she met the man in her life, for fear that her relationship may not be taken seriously.
