Human compatibility is far more nuanced than that. In fact, two people with wildly different careers can complement one another in surprising ways. Having a partner in a different field can also change your perspective on things. It can open up your mind to seeing the world in a new way.
That said, when you are looking for a relationship with someone else, there are practical matters to account for, and careers become a useful lens for exploring those practicalities. On a practical level, careers help determine financial goals. Do you value flexibility rather than long-term wealth? Are you more concerned with financial security over creative fulfillment? Talking about your career should go hand-in-hand with conversations about emotional and personal desires. Getting what you really want from a partner requires you to voice those needs, Katarina Nilsson at HerMoney explains.
The more you ask, engage, and share, the more you will receive. Kathy Caprino , career coach and founder of Ellia Communications, agrees. She says that many people neglect the impact that a potential partner might have on their career. A willingness to work at the relationship can be more important than having the same career or being wildly in love. Further, the ability to connect over shared passions — career or otherwise — can keep busy couples together.

Emma Miller has done it again, and I loved this book, and want more! I can see the potential for lots of great stories using a Matchmaker, such a wonderful idea!! I received this book through Net Galley and the Publisher Love Inspired, and was not required to give a positive review. Dec 17, Emma rated it it was amazing.
Addy doesn't just want a match. She wants what? Dorcas job on Sara Yoder's farm is? Gideon said to Dorcas "Was in der welt? And why? I am looking forward to reading more books by Emma Miller. Hannah's Daughters 1. Courting Ruth 2. Miriam's Heart 3. Anna's Gift 4. Leah's Choice 5. Redeeming Grace 6.

I'll read lots of different things, but I mostly stick to erotic and paranormal romance, so this was a bit a departure for me. It's completely clean. The most they do is hand holding and feather-light kissing. But, they fell for each other slowly and it was sweet. Overlooking the way Addy's parents control her, I found Addy very relatable. She wants to please her parents, but she's not a doormat.
She's also very direct and a bit harsh sometimes. And I This is the first Amish story I've ever read. And I liked Gideon. I guess he's the Amish version of a playboy. He likes women and is not ready to settle down, although his parents want him to marry. There really isn't much conflict.
Addy is attracted to Gideon on first meeting, but he places her in the friend category immediately and so she begins to look at him as a friend and begins to consider the other eligible men around her that show interest. Gideon then begins to realize that his feelings for Addy aren't the same as for other women and that he loves her. The conflict is that Gideon is a hired hand and Addy's parents are insistent that she make a wealthier match so that they'll be cared for in their old age.
The end was a bit predictable, but still enjoyable. Sep 13, Maryann Skaritka rated it really liked it. What do a fast approaching 30 year old Amish girl from Seven Poplars, Delaware and an almost thirty year old Amish man from Wisconsin have in common? Well at times apparently nothing and at times everything. When things don't take the normal Amish courting ways both families seek out matchmaker Sara who is delighted to find them each a potential spouse. Gideon becomes the newly hired hand at Sa What do a fast approaching 30 year old Amish girl from Seven Poplars, Delaware and an almost thirty year old Amish man from Wisconsin have in common?
Gideon becomes the newly hired hand at Sarah's farm and Addie assists with household duties as Sara's home will turn into a boarding house for potential Amish women and men to be matched. I felt sad that Addy's mother was so overbearing at times and only putting her own needs and caring about her own future first. Ellie, a little person is such a sweet and delightful character as well.
She was funny and had a heart of gold. This is the first book in a new series and it was fun to read how true love really found its way in Seven Poplars. Aug 12, Bonnie rated it it was amazing. It's one of "The Amish Matchmaker" series. Addy Coblentz is 30 and not married. Her parents hires Sara to find a match for Addy. Addy goes to work for Sara doing jobs around the house. Another girl wanting a match is working there also. Addy's parents want her to match with someone who has money or property or a business.
Addy wants love not money. Gideon Esch moves to Sara's place from another state to find a match. He looks like he is poor from the clothes he wears. He does outside work for Sara. Here no one knows his family has money. Back home they did and the girls wanted him for his money not love. Addy and Gideon clash at first but deep down they like each other. Addy's parents don't approve of Gideon. Gideon kisses Addy and ask her to marry him. She says yes and then she finds out about the money his family has.
A very good read. Feb 04, Patricia rated it it was amazing. Emma Miller's first of a new series! I loved it! Emma's books are always good, I have never been disappointed! In this first of the Matchmaking Series, Dorcas, who prefers to be called "Addy" short for her middle name of Adelaide, is nearing the age of 30, and no beau in sight.
To the Amish, Addy's age is considered to be a spinster. Addy's family are not well off and they want their daughter to find a "match" , they send her off to work for her cousin Sara who is the town's new matchmaker and o Emma Miller's first of a new series! Addy's family are not well off and they want their daughter to find a "match" , they send her off to work for her cousin Sara who is the town's new matchmaker and owns a home for Amish men and Women. Will Addy's first "new" friend, Gideon, who is a caretaker and worker on Sara's home and farm be the one for her??
I had to keep reading , I love the Amish books and this one is very good! Nov 29, Heidi Robbins Heidi Reads I liked the twists in this book. While Addy wants her own family, she is horrified that her parents hired the matchmaker to help her, especially when she is attracted to newcomer Gideon. She has lots of people giving her advice and trying to refine her rougher edges. I had a hard time with her mother who is sharp and seems to be acting in self-interest when she insists Addy marry for wealth so they will be taken care of in their old age.
Gideon's thoughts are funny as he doesn't think he's ready I liked the twists in this book. Gideon's thoughts are funny as he doesn't think he's ready to settle down or find a bride They are sweet and fun together, even in their hard moments. A well-rounded story with a nice ending. Thank you to Harlequin and Love Inspired Books for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review Mar 16, Gineke rated it really liked it.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I was disappointed when I learned that the Hannah's daughters series had ended, so this book came as a great surprise. It neatly ties together the characters of Hannah's daughters with a new setting in which many more stories can be told. I can't wait to find out who the matchmaker has plans for next. There is only one minor flaw in the book. Somewhere in the opening chapters it is mentioned that Addy has older siblings living away from her hometown. But later on i I thoroughly enjoyed this book!
But later on it states that she has neither sisters nor brothers, meaning she has to take care of her parents when they reach old age. Perhaps this can be corrected when the book gets reprinted. Feb 03, Kav rated it it was amazing. A compelling character-driven story. Addy and Gideon are polar opposites. They come from completely different backgrounds. Their family situations have contributed greatly to the adults they have become. Addy is all prickly and defensive and cautious. She battles with feelings of self-worth.
Gideon is gregarious, easy-going and open.
