What is a Matchmaker Service?

Matchmaking Dating Service

These services offer a more traditional matchmaking approach where you, as the client, talk or meet directly with the matchmaker. Most companies offer a personal, one-on-one approach to assist you in finding a suitable match. The cost of this type of service is usually more expensive than a traditional online dating service.

Why is a Matchmaking Dating Service the Best Option for you?

Why choose to use a matchmaker instead of your typical online dating site or app to find a date? The automated impersonal approach to online dating may not be for you. These type of services are ideal if you believe in the personal touch of a real person you have talked with, and a matchmakers experience and intuition in matching people they have meet and interviewed together.

While a matchmaker service doesn't even come close to the number of members that a traditional online dating service has, they do offer local matchmaking from members who have already been vetted by the service. You know up front that the people you go on dates with from a matchmaker is not a scammer, live near you, are single, and is someone who genuinely wants to meet and is looking for a relationship.
