Sick of swiping endlessly on dating apps with no results to show for it? If so, it might be time to consider trusting a matchmaker. From their objectivity to their dedication to your success, matchmakers offer a unique and personalized approach to finding love that goes beyond the superficial world of online dating. Here are seven great reasons why you should put your faith in the hands of a professional matchmaker.
1. Matchmakers are Objective
In matters of love and dating, we really are our own worst enemies. Most of us have checklists that are impossible for anyone to live up to. While we like to say we’re just picky, the truth is that these lists are keeping us single. Even if we do find a relationship, our checklists have already set our potential partners up to fail.
Matchmakers are not there just to get you dates, they’re there to get you in a happy relationship. Our matchmakers are trained to be objective, and they understand that the foundations of long-lasting happy relationships are built on shared values and life goals. Why a matchmaker chose to match you with someone may not be obvious to you at first, but don’t let this make you wary. Within a few dates your potential compatibility with your match should start to become apparent.
2. They’re Always in Your Corner
Our matchmakers have been called many things — angels, cupids, and miracle workers to name but a few — but we love to think of them as your wing-person, always in your corner. Your matchmaker has your back at every step of your dating journey. It’s up to them to ensure you are dating confidently while keeping an open mind and heart.
Matchmakers love it when you get involved in the process. They can talk you through their reasons for choosing an introduction for you. Working with a matchmaker and giving them honest feedback can also teach you a lot about yourself. Often our clients tell us that the person they fell for on their matchmaking journey was completely different than their “type”.
3. You’ll Meet New People
Our matchmakers can introduce you to people that you may never have crossed paths with on an app or in your daily life. That is the wonderful thing about having a varied database of clients. Being open to different types of people is key to your success on your matchmaking journey.
The more open-minded you are, the less you’re held back by unrealistic expectations. This allows your matchmaker to rely on their training and carefully honed intuition when choosing your introductions. It’s often the “wildcard” introductions that lead to something magical that neither client could have seen coming.
4. No Games
The hardest part of dating and using dating apps is knowing whether someone is actually single and looking for the same kind of relationship as you. You can spend several months dating someone, only to find out their relationship goals are completely different from yours. Everyone who works with our matchmakers is looking for the same thing — a lasting authentic connection.
However, that doesn’t mean they all want the same life. The beauty of matchmaking is the experts ask the difficult questions. By doing this, they can curate your journey so that you meet other clients who share your desires in life. A matchmaker can fast-track your dating journey so you can focus on enjoying the dates.
5. Protecting Your Privacy and Safety
Privacy and discretion are important. So many singles find themselves in uncomfortable situations when using apps. This isn’t surprising when around two-thirds of people have seen someone they know when using an online dating platform. That kind of exposure makes dating privately very difficult to do online.
Safety is also a key concern for singles today. With our matchmakers, you can rest easy, knowing your dates have been vetted by a background check and thorough interview process. Your personal information is protected until you are ready to meet a new introduction.
6. They Do the Hard Work for You
Dating takes a lot of time and energy. The seemingly endless potential partners can be both overwhelming and paralyzing. In addition to the time it takes you to find someone you like, you must also survive the customary pre-date “vetting” process. When — or if — you finally meet them, several weeks might have passed you by.
Often singles feel dating fatigue due to the time-consuming nature of the process. We want you to invest your time and energy in yourself and your date, not waste it on dead-ends and roads to nowhere. Matchmakers remove the guesswork from the process so you can relax and focus on showing up as the best version of yourself.
7. They Set You Up for Success
Your success is our success, and we love success stories. Dating apps achieve success by keeping you single as long as possible. However, a matchmaker defines success by lifelong connections, wedding invitations, and love stories that last.
As matchmakers, our job is to introduce you to other relationship-ready singles and watch as you happily dance into the sunset together. And while our ultimate goal is for you to find love, we know that the little successes along the way can be the greatest opportunities for learning and growth.
Our clients all have their own unique stories, and this includes their matchmaking journey. Some clients come to us with a clear idea of what they want in a relationship, while others are happy to have an expert guide them in a new direction. Wherever you are in your dating journey, we want you to feel successful every step of the way.
