Frequently asked questions about matchmaking
We know you may not have considered using a matchmaking service before and that you may have a lot of questions about what we do and how we do it. We like to be completely transparent about our services, what you can expect, and what we expect from you. Clear communication is the key, and we’re here to dispel the myths and get to the meat.
Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about our matchmaking service:
How long have you been in business?
Match Me Canada has been in business since 2009. We are a small boutique agency with a team of matchmakers that work directly on your behalf. We acquired four matchmaking agency databases along the way and continue to be one of the leading sources for quality matches.
Working with Match Me Canada, how likely am I to find a match?
We are proud to boast a 70 percent match success rate. We work with over 30 affiliate matchmakers, servicing singles from Toronto, the GTA and beyond to help you find lasting love. Our success is based on our incredible team of matchmakers who take the time to get to know you so they can provide you with the best service and high-quality matches, offering support and expert guidance along the way.
What criteria do you use when looking for a match?
We take the time to get to know you as best as we can before we begin our search. We first ask you to complete a confidential questionnaire to help us better understand who you are. Following that, we will schedule a comprehensive consultation call as well as a face to face meeting. We will use the information that you have provided to us in order to begin our search.
For these reasons, it is absolutely critical that you are open and honest with us about who you are as well as who you are looking to meet. It is also essential for you to be realistic about who your future partner might be. If we feel like you need some direction or help in defining “your perfect match,” we will always be open with you about it. After all, the goal is a long-term, committed relationship. We firmly believe that helping you meet someone who is much like yourself is your best possible chance for an enduring match; someone that has similar values, goals, aspirations, and lifestyle is always going to be more compatible.
How does the matchmaking process work?
Now, this is an exciting one! It’s something we take very seriously, and also something we thoroughly enjoy doing! Having been in business for ten years has helped us build a strong reputation in our industry, giving you a distinct advantage in terms of getting the results you want. When considering matches for you, we take several simultaneous approaches. We look for matches for you in our extensive database of pre-screened, quality singles that have been vetted by a professional matchmaker (the “lifestyle” equivalent of an executive recruiter).
We also reach out to some of our affiliate matchmakers and recruit people with our boots on the ground … but, most often, we approach singles through social media sites, a strategy that has proven to be very successful for us. If we find someone we feel is a good match for you, we initiate a detailed call with them, followed by a face to face so we can get to them know them before we introduce them to you.
We incorporated online dating searches into our process, something we are very excited about. To take advantage of this new and exclusive support service, you will need to give us permission to look at your online dating profile, something to which we really hope you will agree. There are so many singles out there, and we know you don’t have the time to get to know all of them before you start to date – let us do the hard work for you as it will give you a great chance of success!
What is a pre-approved match?
A pre-approved match is someone that we have found in our travels that has agreed to meet you. You always have the final say as to whether or not you would like to go ahead with the match.
What kinds of people are Match Me Canada clients?
Our clients are intelligent, educated, successful in their lives and industries. They understand the value of hiring a specialist to help them achieve the best results. Many of our clients go on to refer their friends to us, and that is possibly the nicest compliment of all. Truthfully, however, if they are satisfied with our services, it only makes sense to spread the love!
How involved will I be in the process?
We value communication above everything else because the better we know about you and your expectations, the easier it will be to find the results you seek. We will work closely with you and will keep you up to date on all aspects of your search, including recruitment, leads, and pre-approved matches.
What is online dating support?
Get ready to be amazed! Not only do we assist you in the matchmaking process, but we also take control of your online dating account. If you don’t have one already, we will create an online dating profile for you. First, we edit your profile, helping you choose the best photos for you to attract the kind of person you are looking for. Then, we begin the search to find you a suitable match. We act on your behalf, start conversations, and put you in touch with pre-qualified matches when it’s time to exchange numbers. We will, of course, keep you in the loop on a regular basis, so you know what we are up to and who we want to approach for you. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it? It is!
What happens if I want to keep my online dating search confidential, can we do this?
If you are particularly concerned about privacy, we can certainly give you a presence on our online site but keep who you are confidential. While we would like to be able to post a photo of you, we will respect your wishes 100 percent. We have had past matchmaking success when the member does not have a profile photo, so it is entirely up to you. Keep in mind, however, that, most often, your match will want a photo emailed to them before they agree to meet. If that sounds suitable to you, then we can definitely make this work!
Why do I need dating advice?
Everyone does, it’s not just you! The ultimate goal is for you to be yourself on a date. The truth is, nerves often get in the way and all of a sudden, you’ve overshared, tried too hard to impress or just clammed up because the person sitting across from you is so absolutely stunning that you are at a loss for words.
Our dating advice gives you the tools you need to have amazing phone calls with your love prospects. On a first date, you often only have that one chance to rock it. We want you to be prepared. We want your match to know just how incredible you are.
Based on your most recent dating experience, do you think you can make all this happen on your own? If the answer is no, then yes, you need us.
How is a matchmaking package going to work for me?
If you are committed to finding love, taking control of your dating life and making it a priority is the first step. What comes next are those things that you can’t do alone. Why can’t you do it alone? Because finding love is a full-time job. You already have a job. I’d wager that being a dating expert isn’t it.
Match Me Canada uses multiple approaches—simultaneously—to search for love. Having the right supports in place to help you achieve this goal gives you a better chance of success and success is obtainable, as long as you have the team players you need to get you there. Choosing a package provides you with exclusive access to every tool in our arsenal.
We firmly believe that once someone has decided they want to find love, then the time is right to find it. We want you to find love. We want to be a part of your story. We want your match to be the star of the show while we play a crucial, yet important, supporting role.
Why don’t you all have 5-star reviews?
Our clients love life is our highest priority. We do our best to find the most suitable partners for our members and provide support, encouragement and coaching. We can’t make everyone happy, and we understand that.
Our success rate is about 70%; this means that most of our members get into an exclusive relationship from our introductions. It’s an absolute honour to be apart of our client’s love stories, even if it is behind the scenes.
We have options!
If matchmaking isn’t what you are after, perhaps working with an online dating assistant or dating coach is. Ultimately, we want you to be happy, and we can determine during our consultation call what approach is going to be best for you to find love.
