There are so many benefits of using a matchmaking service. Although there are various matchmaking services, not all of them offer the same services and there are varying differences to each company which include varying cost for the services offered.
There are many match making services available and it’s very important that if you are considering a match making company that you do your research on the company to ensure it is a good fit for your personal situation based on your relationship goals.
I will share with you the general common benefits of utilizing a match making company that can be applied to most dating services.
1. There is typically a face to face meeting with a representative of the company.
Unlike online dating sites it is required by most match making companies to either go to the office where you will meet with your match maker or Relationship Consultant or the match maker will go direct to the Clients’ home or office to conduct a personal one on one interview. Naturally this will give the company and the client a chance to introduce themselves and see if there is a common fit or compatibility to provide service.
2. There is a screening and qualifying process in the interview
To become a member of a matchmaking company often implies a private membership with certain criteria for membership. The most important criteria are that the potential client is SINGLE first and foremost and available to date. You are also typically required to provide personal identification to verify your identity, residence and age! Some dating agencies go as far as doing a full background check on the individual and run criminal background checks.
3. You are referred to other singles based on compatibility
The purpose of the face to face interview is also to determine what the client is looking for as well as to do a full assessment of what the client possesses in terms of personality traits and other factors such as the degree of difficulty in matching a person according to their criteria in a partner. Many clients claim to be “very picky” or that they would be the type to be “difficult to match” because they believe that the person they are looking for doesn’t exist. In fact, they wouldn’t be at a match making company if they were successfully meeting the right types on their own using their own avenues. Most match making services will conduct a very thorough personality and or Myers Brigg type personality test so that personality traits and characteristics can matched appropriately
4. Clients are typically men/women that are SERIOUS about finding a Life Mate
Match Making services also screen for emotional availability and relationship goals. Singles that are looking at a match making service are “tired of the games” of online dating or not into the whole “bar scene”.
5. The costs of joining a match making service are a better than investing in multiple online dating sites, bars or bad relationships
There is typically an investment for using a matchmaking service. Fees can greatly vary from $500.00 perhaps from a Personal Matchmaker in a small local town matching friends and family all the way up to $50k for companies such as Valenti, Model Quality or Millionaire Matchmaker Patti Stanger that deals with only millionaires and clients with a very high net worth.
In my discussions with clients that have been dating “online”, they have shared with me the number of YEARS they have been searching for a quality person online and how many BAD DATES they’ve had. Many have considered their experience with online dating as a poor investment of BOTH time and money. If a single person were to go to a bar just once or twice a week (many singles do this) and spend around $50.00 – $100.00 at the bar, they’ve just blown about $2,600.00 a year. This does not include the expenses incurred by dating the various people you’ve met at the bar in an effort to get to know them better.
6. You save a lot of time and effort by joining a match making service
It is the matchmaker’s that are responsible to provide you with quality matches in order to save YOU the time and energy to find that person on your own. After all, this is one of the reasons you are INVESTING in the service.
“I don’t have time to play games”
“I don’t have a lot of free time to go looking for a partner”
“I’d rather someone else do the research or leg work while I focus on the dating”
Many people have complained about how long it took to meet someone they were interested in, and then weeks or months of correspondence to get to the know the person by phone, text and email even BEFORE meeting face-face. After the in person meeting it could vary from a few days to a few months or even years that you are “learning” about the person to determine compatibility for a long-term relationship
7. You increase your odds of finding and meeting the right person
With the sophistication and experience that you are investing in with the match making company of choice; you are absolutely increasing your odds of finding and meeting the right person because. Now you are part of a membership of other like-minded singles that are also wanting to achieve their particular relationship goals. You will be introduced to singles that you would likely NEVER MET without the introduction through the service. If you are a busy professional with a full life, coupled with kids, your business, family and person hobbies and interests, it’s very difficult for a single person to FIND THE TIME to meet the right person. All of the leg work is done by your match maker, once again giving you exposure to meet other singles that are wanting to meet you as well but are not in your circle of friends in order to make that happen. And who wants to rely on CHANCE to meet the right person when you KNOW that you can use the professional assistance of a match making service and their team of professionals.
