What is matchmaking?
Have you ever asked someone if they "have any single friends?" You were requesting matchmaking! Matchmakers are people whose profession it is to set others up with romantic connections. A true matchmaker will look beyond whether someone is single: we consider the physical and personality demographics you fall into and the traits you're seeking, as well as potential physical, intellectual and emotional compatibility. We even dig into those "taboo" topics that aren't always polite to talk about, but are truly important to many people: faith, politics, finances, and more. We want to make sure there's legitimate future potential between you and your match.
Matchmaking has been a part of human history since the very beginning. Ancient cultures like the Aztecs and Greeks held matchmaking in a very high regard. There are even stories in the Bible about matchmakers! Matchmaking is just as relevant today as it was thousands of years ago—dating apps and websites have not replaced us; they've actually helped make us more popular! As long as there are people looking for love, there will be matchmakers.
How does it work?
Consider LISTEN TO YOUR HART to be your advocate and the middle man between you and other matchmakers. We're here to answer your questions, offer advice, and—most importantly—utilize our vast network in the dating community to help you meet someone special.
After spending time getting to know you and what you are looking for in a date or partner, we will source personalized matches for you and arrange the first dates. Post-date feedback (what you liked, if there was anything you didn't like) will inform how we proceed from there!
Who uses matchmaking?
Almost every type of person you can imagine! Some are busy professionals who don’t have time to meet quality mates on their own. Others are perfectly lovely bachelors or bachelorettes that are burnt out from swiping, or haven’t had luck finding the right person. Others still may have little dating experience and need a jumpstart, or have recently reentered singledom after a breakup, divorce, or widowing and would like some assistance getting back into the game.
What does it cost?
There are usually two ways to work with a matchmaker:
The first way is to become a client, which does involve a fee for the service. Your matchmaker will actively search for matches on your behalf and introduce you to a guaranteed number of people within the timeframe you agree upon.
The second way is to simply be open to being matched, should the right person come along. This is a complimentary service, and costs absolutely nothing! There are no guaranteed number of matches (especially if you are very particular about the type of person you'd like to date), but there's also nothing to lose!

What's your success rate?
Every individual we work with and match we make is personal, rather than part of a statistic. We consider a match a success if both parties would like to see each other again, but we also consider it a success if our daters learned something about themselves and the type of person they want to be with. (i.e. "I didn't think XYZ was important to me, but I've now realized it is!") Our thorough post-date feedback calls are a great space for self-reflection!
Sometimes a date will be good on paper and have everything you're looking for, but the spark is missing. Other times you might feel more of a friendly connection than a romantic one. We are committed to helping you on your journey until you find "The One."
