Our Matchmaking Process
Match Me Canada’s success is not accidental. We have developed a winning process that has proven itself time and again.
Screening & Membership
Everything starts with the initial contact. You reach out to us via email, phone or by filling out our confidential client questionnaire, and we then initiate the connection.
Once you have completed your questionnaire, we set up a face-to-face meeting, during which we get to know each other better. Once we confirm your membership, we will encourage you to meet with our Life, Image, Date Mentor and Wellness coaches. We will also snail-mail you an entertaining and informative book on dating that many people have found to be helpful during the matchmaking process.
Your personal screening is very important, as it tells us where you are in the process of finding love. We meet so many wonderful singles who are ready for a committed relationship, but every so often we are faced with a person who is not a good match for us for any number of reasons. Above all, if you are not emotionally ready for a committed relationship, you are probably not a good fit for what we do. We do, however, have excellent reciprocity with other dating and relationship services, and may be able to refer you to a more appropriate agency if this is the case.
The Process – how we do it
Our Toronto matchmaking specialists first look for a possible match in our database. We also pursue many different recruiting avenues, whether it be on foot or through social media outlets such as LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. Our social media sites offer information about dating tips, relationship and lifestyle advice, and we often hear from professional men and women who are interested and curious to find out how we work. We also have a healthy relationship with our competitors, which includes more than thirty matchmaking services in the USA and Canada. People also come to us directly through search engines, as we are one of the top hits on Google for Toronto matchmaking agencies and Toronto dating services.
Your first match is usually presented within 4 – 5 weeks of joining. We use this time to complete your personal profile and to search for a potential match. We attempt to find the best possible match first, and it isn’t unheard of for our clients to meet their true love on the first match! Your membership does not ‘officially’ begin until you meet your first match, so no time is ever lost.
When we feel we have a suitable match for you, we will send you information via email about him or her. Please note that this process usually takes between four and five weeks, during which time we are completing your personal profile and searching for your match. Remember – the best things in life are always worth waiting for!
Personal Profile Exchange
If you are interested in pursuing the match after our email introduction, we then send you an in-depth personal profile, complete with all the little details that will help you to get a better understanding of your match’s personality, familial relationships, interests and professional background.
We will never disclose the age of your match, nor do we share photographs. We find that having this information can often create unrealistic expectations, and want to give you both the opportunity to form your own feelings and opinions. We have made the introduction because we feel there is a strong potential for success. The rest is up to you!
If you are both equally enthusiastic about meeting in person, we provide contact information and encourage the man to make the initial connection. Old fashioned? Maybe. We find it saves both parties from potentially awkward moments.
Directly after we provide numbers, we reach out with specific dating advice to both you and your match via email.
Our office reaches out after a week to ensure that contact has been made, and again in another week to confirm that a date has been scheduled. We will reach out once again after the scheduled date to see how it went, and to get as much feedback as possible to make sure we are on the right track. We will offer constructive advice if needed to assist with the process for both you and your match.
The Rule of Three
We encourage our matches to go out at least three times. We find that this gives you the best opportunity to get to know each other. Most clients that we have had success with have told us that they were grateful we encouraged them to go out with their match three times, as it helped them get to know each other better and see the true possibilities of having a relationship with that person.
Match Me Canada’s matchmaking success is based on the core principles of communication, discretion and integrity. While there is plenty we can each learn about one another from email and phone calls, there is no substitute for an in-person meet and greet. This will give us a chance to get to know each other better, and assure all parties that there is no misunderstanding as to the mission at hand.
Developing realistic expectations around dating and about using a matchmaking service in general is key. We each – you and the Match Me team – play an integral role in helping you connect with that special someone, and this is the relationship we will focus on first. The better we know who you are, the better we understand your hopes and dreams, the easier it will be for us to speak to a potential match on your behalf.
We have several meeting places in Toronto and North York. For out of town clients, we would be happy to set up a Skype meeting at your convenience.
In order to provide the best possible service to our Match Me Canada clients, a consultation fee of $250 will be levied at time of booking. If we agree to work together, this fee will be deducted from your membership when you join. To book your initial consultation with Rebecca Cooper-Traynor, call or email today. Your happily ever after might be closer than you think!
