How did Paul Brunson go from investment banker to a “real-life hitch” with a TV show called LoveTown scheduled to air on OWN on August 19? “I am walking in my passion,” says Brunson of his huge career strides. He started his matchmaking firm in D.C. three years ago with the goal of making it into the most successful dating boutique in the area. Fast-forward and it is safe to say he has far exceeded those goals with over 400 clients including international clientele from as far as Saudi Arabia and Dubai. Life coaching from the only black male matchmaker doesn’t come without some sort of hitch-there’s currently a three-month waiting list.
Brunson’s unbeatable recipe for relationship success along with life coaching has resulted so far in seven marriages. “There’s a commonality in all couples who I found are happy or claim to be happy,” says Brunson.
The two pillars and secrets that no one shares says Brunson which will ensure a happy and healthy relationship: 1. Ability to communicate; 2. Ability to problem solve.
If you’re single and you know about these two staples you can work on them. When the time comes you will be effective in these areas. For those in a committed relationship, once these two things are conquered it makes it easier to work on other issues.
Matchmaking as a career hit Brunson after realizing while doing non-profit work with underprivileged children the majority of them came from single parent homes. So he came up with the idea that having a hand in creating strong couples would allow him to indirectly improve their lives. Although this matchmaking superpower does not come without a slight cost.
