Myth #1 – “I can go online for free.” Free in theory. The truth is these aren’t exactly free. Think of how much of your own time you invest into the free sites. Think about the thousands of profiles you have to weed through, the messaging back and forth – all this work before you even go on a date! On average, online daters spend 12 hours a week engaged in computer based online dating activity.1 Using a matchmaking service saves you time and helps weed out people who are not serious about finding a relationship. It also protects you from scammers or people misrepresenting themselves. A recent study demonstrated 54% of online daters felt someone else seriously misrepresented themselves in their profile.1 The last thing our clients want to do is waste valuable personal time making a connection with someone who isn’t exactly what he or she made themselves out to be. Therefore, as online sites may seem like the inexpensive choice, they are not without cost – you are still investing yourself and your time.
Myth #2 – “Matchmakers are for millionaires.” Each person has unique life circumstances and their own set of financial circumstances. We work with everyday professionals – all types of people – people just like you. It’s true that some matchmaking services, such as ones we might see in the media target a select group of people; however, the industry of matchmaking goes so much further than a select group. After all, everyone deserves love! Hiring a matchmaker is about making an investment in yourself, just as paying for a gym membership is an investment in yourself. It’s about prioritizing what’s most important to you! You do not have to be a millionaire to hire help in finding love. Just think of how much less expensive hiring a matchmaker is than going through a divorce.
Myth #3 – “Matchmakers are for losers.” Hiring a matchmaker doesn’t mean you are desperate or lonely. It doesn’t mean you couldn’t find anyone on your own. Rather, it means that you are serious about love and don’t want waste your time with people who aren’t serious. Hiring a matchmaker is the “in” thing to do. Think of all current reality shows about love and professional matchmakers. This is the time to take finding love into your own hands; no more waiting around. As matchmakers, we seek out relationship-ready, well-rounded people who are serious about finding love. People trust us with their personal lives because of our discretion, standards and personalized service. Matchmakers are for those who want to make a proactive change and meet matches who are personally hand chosen rather than chosen through algorithms.
