Wendy was born in California and has lived in Europe and the UK for over 20 years. She has been in relationships with partners of a different culture, religion, sex and age. Wendy has run an International Matchmaking business since 2002, and her work, assisting Expats around the world to find a life partner, centres on the importance of good communication.
Clearing away clutter along our communication pathways prevents misunderstandings. We all have topics we are comfortable with and those we prefer not to discuss. Conscious coupling with someone from a different cultural, family upbringing, financial position, age and sex can play a significant role in effective communication.
Most of the time misunderstandings can be worked through by:
Discussing it with a non biased person, talking freely about what’s bothering oneself in a judgement free space or simply going back to how one was raised, one’s family values and comparing that of the misunderstood partner. Misconception and assumption cause great complications in a relationship.
Dating is daunting for everyone, regardless of whether you are in a major city, a small town or geographically challenged. Searching for someone special to share your life with can be mentally exhausting. Online dating, meeting someone in a social environment or working with a Matchmaker can leave one confused, depressed, disappointed with a sense that all hope is lost. Shocking, disrespectful behaviour and disastrous dates with individuals who have ulterior motives can make someone seeking a life partnership wondering if there is a way to find true love.

A great deal of moving to a new country is managing one’s expectations. When a couple relocates together, respect of each other’s adaption period is imperative. Often one partner is working while the other settles the home. Regardless of one’s situation, the new country will always have it’s challenges along the road. An unbiased listener is often welcome when adapting.
People perceive varying degrees of infidelity acceptable or unacceptable. It often stems from upbringing, culture, personal choice, life experience, expectations and comfort.
We were all raised with a certain value system based on what is perceived as normal sexual behaviour for a man, woman and couple. Sexual deviation is diverting from what society or our family upbringing would refer to as normal sexual behaviour. The key in all sexual activities, whether one is familiar or unfamiliar with them, is playing safely, consensually with respect for the person one is engaging with, and having the freedom to communicate openly and transparently.
BDSM, Fetish, Cross Dressing and BiSexuality are among a few of the perceived sexual deviances which occur regularly in relationships. Understanding them and discussing them with an unbiased person can assist in understanding oneself and one’s partner.
Communication and respect have a key role. Lack of communication or non discussed assumption may damage your relationship making it difficult to survive. Rules and guidelines to consensually incorporating it or creating balance in your existing polyamorous relationship are important.
