We had the good fortune of connecting with Jacqui Rubinoff and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Jacqui, we’d love to hear your perspective on online dating (or interesting anecdotes).
There are pros and cons to online dating. It can be extremely successful and beneficial if went about properly. If you and the person you meet online are displaying yourselves accurately with your true values, goals, and details, it’s a great way to find someone who shares similar values. It’s also beneficial for people who are busy and are still able to make time to find their special someone. Being able to connect on an emotional level prior to meeting physically is also a nice benefit that can go a long way. On the flip side, many people are using it for a hookup so it’s easy to get hurt if you are looking for a relationship. Unfortunately, many are displaying themselves inaccurately and will say anything to get noticed. Another thing to consider is online dating gives you access to hundreds of people at their fingertips which might make people always want to keep looking for something better. Do your research before choosing an online dating platform, as some are known for hookups while others are known for people looking for lifelong partners.
Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
I am the Vice President of Eye of Love, an international pheromone brand with unique products to enhance individuals daily lives. I am responsible for marketing, product design, trainings, and managing our international sales network. Along the way I have learned many lessons, one of them is to be flexible and think fast. Because I wear many hats I am managing many moving parts and it’s easy for things to go wrong. It’s important to think of solutions efficiently, be flexible and quickly be able to change coarse. Because I saw how many people needed help finding love and enhancing relationships, I wanted to help people on a more personal level. I became a Certified Love Coach & Relationship Expert to help individuals looking for love, need help enhancing their current relationship, or who are going through a breakup. This was a challenging process as I already had a full plate, but I made it a priority taking online coursework on nights and weekends. In life you just have to go for it. There will never be a time that you will be less busy or more hungry than you are right now.
Any great local spots you’d like to shoutout?
If my friend was visiting for the weekend, I would take them to all my favorite places to eat and drink. I would take them to my favorite coffee shop Aharon Coffee, brunch at Butchers Daughter in Venice, Go Greek Yogurt, some good pasta at Uovo, ramen at Tatsu, Thai at Night + Market and pizza at Double Zero. Some places I would take them during the day are Abbot Kinney Blvd, Melrose Trading Post, El Matador Beach, and for a hike at Runyon Canyon. At night I would take them to Black Rabbit Rose for a fun bar with magic or go to live music in Silverlake.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
Dr. Ava Cadell, Americas #1 Loveologist, author, and global speaker gave me the encouragement to be able to get my certification while working a full time job.
