Global Love Report Interview 

Global Love Report (GLR): What made you decide to become a dating and relationship coach? 

Matthew Ramieri (MR): Initially, I decided to become a relationship coach to assist with the matchmaking process for MettaFind, Inc. 

However, once I delved into the certification program, I felt that this was something that really resonated with me and something that I am quite good at. I decided to make it a stand-alone offering because I want to be able to help as many people as possible find deep and meaningful connections. 

GLR: How do you think singles will benefit from a matchmaker with coaching skills? 

MR: Many people may not have a clear understanding of their desires or requirements in a partner. A skilled coach possesses the ability to gently uncover the genuine needs and desires that individuals may not be consciously aware of in their quest for a meaningful connection.

GLR: What’s something new that you’ve learned that you’re excited to implement in your own business?

MR: The part of the process that involves helping individuals understand themselves better, fostering personal development, and enhancing overall well-being.

GLR: What’s something that you learned from the course that surprised you?

MR: Not as surprising to me as someone who has been interested in analyzing relationships and what makes for a good connection, but something that I think might be surprising to many is the emphasis on fostering independence within relationships.

While the term “relationship coach” might suggest a focus on collaboration and togetherness, coaches often work to empower individuals to stand strong as individuals within their partnerships. Coaches guide clients to maintain a sense of self-identity, pursue personal goals, and prioritize individual well-being, recognizing that a healthy relationship involves two whole individuals coming together rather than relying on each other for completeness.

This approach challenges the notion that dependency is a foundation for strong relationships and encourages interdependence—a balance where both partners maintain autonomy while supporting each other’s growth.  This focus on fostering independence can be surprising to those expecting relationship coaching to solely address issues within the context of the couple, highlighting the importance of individual strength in creating resilient partnerships.

GLR: Who do you aspire to be as a coach (e.g. Matthew Hussey, James Preece, etc.)? And why? 

MR: I do not aspire to be like any particular coach. I just strive to be a compassionate and empathetic listener and create a safe and non-judgmental space for clients to express themselves openly.
