- What is a matchmaking service?
- How do I get started?
- How are clients matched?
- How are dates arranged?
- How and where do I meet my date?
- What happens after my date?
A Matchmaking service takes the legwork out of dating by outsourcing “the search” for interesting, like-minded individuals.
It’s easy! Simply call us for a confidential consultation with a professional matchmaker who will learn about you and what you are looking for in a potential partner. If we determine we have great matches for you, we’ll get you started.
Our insightful, professional matchmakers will hand-select matches for you based upon the information we discuss in your interview and our team’s skilled and successful matchmaking abilities. We also take into consideration the on-going feedback we receive from you after every date, as dating is a fine tuning process! We are interested in your desires, goals and what motivates you. Then, we utilize what we learn about you and apply our experience and instincts to keep improving your matches.
Once our matchmakers select a match for you we will contact you by phone to tell you about the person we have chosen. Everything we have learned about you is taken into consideration for this process. The following summarizes what to expect:
- We respect your confidentiality and only give out your first name.
- We never reveal your address, last name, phone number, email address or where you work.
- We give you a detailed description of your match.
- We share why we think you are going to enjoy meeting your next match.
Our matchmakers arrange all of the details for you. You just show up at the restaurant and enjoy your date. If your schedule makes meeting for lunch difficult, we also arrange dates for a drink after work or a weekend brunch. Our goal is that the match is well-suited and the time and place are convenient for both of you. We like to create an environment that makes getting to know the other person as comfortable and easy as possible (and fun!).
At the end of the date, you can exchange business cards or phone numbers and make plans to get together again. Following each date, we ask that you contact us with feedback. Feedback is an important part of the matchmaking process. Based on your comments and overall impression of the person, we’ll fine tune your future matches. The process couldn’t be easier!
