Interview Questions With Linsey A. Daman by Susan McCord
- You said on your website that you have tried online dating sites and matchmaking facilities but nothing seemed to help you find Mr. Right. Is this the main reason you decided to start own personal dating website “SingleSuccessfulCEO.com”?
Yes, I’ve registered on several paid dating sites that claimed they had affluent bachelors who are seeking sophisticated bachelorettes. These sites unfortunately did not work out, despite the high price that I paid for these “exclusive” or “premiere” dating sites. Rather than finding an eligible bachelor, I found hundreds of decoy profiles that were put in place by the corporations themselves to simply elevate their numbers. Any profiles that were created by humans were also a scam coming out of foreign nations asking for an exorbitant amount of money to be sent to them directly without any solid reason other than the fact they were desiring money. Between the fake or “dummie” profiles generated by the sites themselves and the human profiles asking for tens of thousands of dollars – these paid dating sites are pretty worthless.
Hence, I started looking into free dating sites and found even worse scams from teenagers pretending to be adults and adults pretending to be teenagers. Each individual was lying about their age, race, gender, etc, etc. How is it possible to trust the fact you might not be talking to a man but rather a woman on these free dating sites? The same principal plays out in paid dating sites but it is x3 worse with free dating sites because most people aren’t going to pay for dating. Hence the free sites are simply riddled with scams, mayhem and false information on almost each profile.
It was from this extremely long and expensive journey of paid and free dating sites that lead me to create my own personalized site, Single Successful CEO.com. I openly admit that marketing my independent site hasn’t been an easy task; but the end result is what I’m praying for and hopefully will present itself soon. In fact, this “eligible bachelor” might already be interested; we will see how things turn out in the near future.
- Are you a successful CEO? In a few sentences tell us a little about your work.
I’m the Founder & CEO of the Cultural Arts Center of St. Louis, LLC and honestly have to say that I do consider myself to be fairly successful in my line of work. My company is performing arts based established in St. Louis, Missouri which has traveling showcases allowing us to come to just about any city. Flamenco, the Spanish dance, is the specialty of our performances but we also offer theatrical productions, vocal concerts and live entertainment.
- Are men intimidated by your intellect, therefore making it more difficult to date?
This is most certainly true to say and makes my personal search even harder than it should be because of this one factor; intimidation. The purpose of my site, Single Successful CEO was not created to intimidate anyone – it was created to help promote the fact that I’m single and searching and would like to find a special someone like everyone else. The bachelor I’m seeking is strong enough to hold his own and is not intimidated easily by a women’s career. Hopefully the bachelor that I find has also accomplished a lot and potentially even more in his professional life. Several people have indicated my site is a “power house” which might be true; but in reality I’m searching for that “power house” and strongly believe he is out there searching for me as well
- Are there many other websites like yours available on the web?
Not that I can find and I’ve completed a very deep search looking for personalized or private sites similar to my own.
This personalized site is still new in the dating industry and this forward-thinking approach to online dating is creating quite a stir with the media and press. When someone thinks of online dating, they imagine a pre-established site where you register, write a brief paragraph and are allowed one to two images. However, I found the one paragraph rule was too limiting for me and I wanted additional room to write, show my creativity and post as many photos as I wanted. With this being said, I could honestly only see one option: create your own personal site. We all have sites for our businesses and professional lives, so why not create a site for our personal lives as well? I’ve done just that – SingleSuccessfulCEO.com and I’m strongly encouraging other singles out there to be more independent with their personal lives as well. By launching this online independent site movement; I’m clearly making waves, breaking barriers and revolutionizing online dating.
How would you market your personal site? I’m in the process of developing a platform so all independent personalized sites like my own have a place to showcase their own profile. This has yet to be invented; instead of Facebook we need Datebook. A venue for these sites to gather, where they are searchable and ultimately user-friendly for other singles that are serious in their search.
As an entrepreneur of a performing arts company, I simply do not have the time or patience to weed through all of the hundreds of profiles on these pre-established dating sites. None of these profiles stand out in any way whatsoever and there are a shockingly high percentage of them that are fake and generated by the dating corporations themselves merely to make the statistics appear greater than they are in fact. However, by launching Single Successful CEO I’ve created the forerunner for the personalized profile site that truly pops, turns heads and stands above the rest by separating itself from the pack.
- I noticed you did not specify your age or your age preference of a potential suitor, is this not important to you?
Age is merely a number to me so therefore I’m pretty flexible about dating different age ranges. The age of my suitor is not at all important to me because the essence of the person and the integrity is what I value in a relationship.
- Why have you chosen not to have a personalized video of yourself on your Dating site? I saw a few on your YouTube channel but they are audio based. Wouldn’t this be a great feature to have on your website homepage?
I’m currently in the process of filming a high-grade quality commercial with a professional film corporation that will be released soon on the site and on YouTube. Yes, I agree having a video, especially a professional commercial/video; will truly enhance the site and the amount of traffic to the site
- Name the 5 most important things you would want in your future husband/partner?
- 1. Trust
- 2. Honesty
- 3. Integrity
- 4. Communication
- 5. Morals & Values
- Have any men who have contacted you expressed concern regarding the exposure you have been receiving?
My office has been flooded with calls, my home phone message box is full and my e-mail is completely overwhelming with responses. I simply can’t respond to all of these inquires so I try my best to prioritize and answer those first that truly interest me or show a sincere intent. I only respond via phone or email to those who are positive and encouraging in my search.
- Do you want children and are you open to your dates having children?
I currently do not have children and prefer to date bachelors who do not have children as well. However I would be willing to keep the door open to suitors with children if the suitor is truly an exceptional man. Also the age of his children is something that I would take into consideration prior to dating.
- Are you willing to relocate & is anyone geographically undesirable?
Yes, I’m willing to relocate for that special someone when the occasion should arise. I’m primarily interested in relocating to Europe but I would consider other venues as well. It’s hard to say what will happen in the future but I’m keeping the door open to all possibilities. I wouldn’t say any bachelor would be geographically undesirable because that would be quite limiting. Of course, I have my preferences on countries or cultures but keeping an open mind is the best ideology one can have while dating.
- Does it help being multilingual with who you can potentially meet online?
My ultimate goal would be to find a francophone bachelor because I have a BA in French linguistics. Hence, my strong desire to relocate to Europe and therefore all nations across the pond are fair game as far as I’m concerned. Being a polyglot truly does help with spreading the word because I can advertise in several languages and reach a broader audience. My site, Single Successful CEO should be in French which is my desired language but for now it rests in English to appeal to a larger market. If my site was in French-only, I would be happy but I couldn’t necessarily market myself well in Italy or Spain. So it was a hard decision to decide which language should be the prime language for Single Successful CEO; but English won out because it is the universal language and hopefully those in many nations will be able to reach and understand my personal message.
- How long have you been trying out your new dating venture and how is it working so far?
I’ve only had my personalized site for a few months and I’m truly content with the overwhelming response from bachelors and from the press. Thank you everyone for your support!
- How would you describe yourself to someone in a 160 character Twitter Profile? Your best traits/qualities?
Single Successful CEO Seeking an Eligible Bachelor for Long-Term Relationship.
- In your opinion what is the biggest problem with dating today?
I’ve covered all of this in my most recent publication, Single Successful CEO: The Audio book. Please check it out on Amazon and of course it is also featured on my personalized site as well.
- What type of feedback have you received regarding your website? May I ask why the comments are disabled on your YouTube videos; wouldn’t that be another place for potential partners?
Countless dating coaches and relationship advisers have vouched for my personalized site and applaud my courage for putting my profile “front and center” as one of them pointed out. I’m receiving quite a popular vote with the eligible bachelors and they also agree with my forward-thinking approach with dating.
YouTube comments are disabled because I’m overrun and flooded with responses now; I couldn’t imagine opening yet another forum for bachelors to contact me. In theory, it would be a wonderful idea but I’m truly spread thin with each trying to conquer my attention.
- What is your next big plan of action?
My publicist has me attending several large community functions coming up in the next few weeks. My publicist is focusing on the greater St. Louis area where I am focusing on making the European connections. Two birds, one stone – that is my motto.
