Matchmaking has become big business in the US. With reality shows like Millionaire Matchmaker, new matchmaking services launching each year, and over 1,600 matchmakers in the US, choosing the right service can feel like a daunting task. You might find yourself asking:
- How do I know if I am selecting the right matchmaker?
- What if I pick the wrong one?
- What’s the difference between online dating and matchmaking, anyway?
We know finding the right matchmaker can be hard, that’s why we created these simple tips that everyone should know when selecting a matchmaker:
1. Look For Quality and Personality
There are times in your life when you should cut corners and scrimp and save, hiring a matchmaker should not be one of those times. While it is good to look for an affordable matchmaker that fits your budget, you do not want to hire the cheapest matchmaker. You should be looking for the quality of the matchmaker. What does their website look like? How do you feel when you meet the matchmaker? Do you feel comfortable? What is your first impression of the business?
2. Do Some Research
3. Be Honest
The only way a matchmaker can help you is if you are open and honest with them. The matchmaker needs to know your likes and dislikes, your goals and dreams, your ideal mate. But they also need to know where you are coming from, the things that hurt you in the past, the loves you have lost. Be true to your matchmaker and they will be true to you. The more they know, the more they can do some real research into finding Mrs. or Mr. Right.
4. Determine Your Budget
When you meet with a matchmaker, make sure you have looked over your finances and determined the amount of money you are willing to spend. If you have this in mind before your initial meeting, you will have a better idea of exactly what you want, what you are willing to spend, and if this matchmaker fits into your budget. If you are still looking to play the field, you might be more interested in a dating coach or help with your online dating portfolio. If you are looking for a more secure long-term relationship, maybe its time to invest!
