The new film Friends with Benefits, opens on July 22 and has singles everywhere asking if this type of relationship can actually work? One of the most sought after professional matchmakers, headquartered in Phoenix, Arizona, pulls the curtain back on this dating dilemma and the answers may surprise you.
Online PR News – 20-July-2011 – – (Phoenix, Arizona)—When Friends with Benefits, the new Justin Timberlake/Mila Kunis film, opens on July 22, there’s no doubt that it will be a summer splash. It rides the line between comedy for the guys and romance for the ladies, making for a perfect date movie. But what is the message this movie is sharing with us? If art imitates life, does this mean that more and more couples are starting out in a no-strings-attached scenario? And does that make for a strong long-term relationship?
In the Will Gluck-helmed feature, the two main characters meet when Kunis’ Jamie, an executive recruiter in New York, works to woo Timberlake’s Dylan from L.A. to the Big Apple to accept a position as art director at GQ. Jamie and Dylan quickly become good friends, and after lamenting that they are too emotionally damaged to be in real relationships, choose to approach a sexual relationship for just what it is: sex. The underlying question of the film is whether or not this type of connection really works and if friends can remain friends when sex enters the picture.
Professional Matchmaker in Phoenix, Arizona, and owner of SPIES, Single Professional Introductions for the Especially Selective, Roseann Higgins believes that starting a relationship as friends can make for the best partnerships. Her goal is to identify exactly what clients are seeking and to make introductions based on not only physical attraction but the substance that lies beneath. Her clients come to her to combine a “friends with benefits” scenario with a long-term relationship. They are looking for that perfect person with whom to continue their lives.
In her work, Higgins knows the challenges busy professionals face in trying to meet that right person. While many would like to believe that movie-like meeting is possible, it doesn’t always work out that way…so Higgins helps it along. She attends thousands of events each year, acting as an executive recruiter for her clients to find just the right person for an introduction. Her homework is extensive; she prides herself on knowing all about clients and prospective dates long before they meet each other. Using interviews and pictures, Higgins is able to ensure a higher level of success.
As for creating a “friends with benefits” relationship, Higgins says, “If a single girl has a ‘no-strings-attached’ joie de vivre, guys find that hard to resist. Women should embrace this by dating with only one agenda: to have fun! You can only marry one man, so have fun while seeing if this is the one for you. If you’re both the one for each other, you’ll both know it.”
