What is matchmaking?

Matchmaking is an art that has been around for centuries. Despite its archaic background, matchmaking has shifted and grown to adapt to more modernistic relationship ideals. Even so the focus remains the same: matching one single person to another, both of whom are hoping to find a love, a partner and a future, together.

Will my profile to visible to the public?

Absolutely not! We pride ourselves on maintaining the highest standards of discretion and confidentiality. Your information will only be accessible to our vetted team of matchmakers.

How is matchmaking different to online dating?

It’s completely bespoke matchmaking for you. Forget about algorithms and trying to find your life partner based on appearances alone. Although looking for marriage or a life partner online can be successful, it is also time consuming and hugely unreliable. Unlike some online dating agencies, our matchmaking methods are based on psychological principles and professional consultations. We hand pick your matches, making sure their values, ideals and interests align to your own.

How does it work?

Your matchmaker will sit down with you and conduct a Compatibility Profiling session. This is where we really get to know you and understand what you are looking for. Whether you desire a partner for marriage, or life, we like to have a clear idea of the kind of person you feel you would be the most compatible with before we begin our search. We will then find people who we believe to be compatible with you, liaising with you throughout the entire process.

Are you a marriage agency?

Not exactly. As can be seen from our endorsements, whilst a good number of our clients are happily married, our remaining singles are looking for long term, serious relationships. If looking for a partner for marriage is where you are – some of our clients are more marriage oriented than others, ultimately there is a common thread amongst them, and that is the desire to meet someone to build a life and future with.


If I decide to join when can I expect to start dating?

The first step to becoming a Private Member is your Compatibility Profiling. After this session, you can expect to be talking to your Matchmaker about potential matches within ten to fourteen days and your first Introduction should take place soon after that.

How long does the membership last?

We tailor each membership to our client’s individual requirements so membership duration varies. Our standard Private Membership is, however, 12 months.

Where will my matchmaker be based?

Your matchmaker will likely be based in London. We do, however, have a large team of consultants who are based internationally, and of course our matchmakers travel regularly to meet with their clients, enabling them to get to know clients as best they can and form a close working relationship with them.

Where are your offices?

Our main office is located in Mayfair, London. We also have an office in Manhattan, New York, with more offices coming soon! The provincial location of our offices does not limit our matchmaking, in fact the majority of our clients are based in other cities around the world.

Do you cover the Dubai region?

Yes we do. We work with clients world wide and Dubai is one of our most popular international locations. See  introduction agency dubai for more details.  Other regions we frequently work in include the USA, Hong Kong and Zurich.

How do I know if I’m ready to use a matchmaker?

Only you can truly know whether you are relationship ready. Remember, we provide a relationship – we can only provide an introduction. You need to have the time and energy to invest in making sure that you can develop that introduction into a stable and committed relationship.  We will of course be there to help and support you as necessary but you must help us, help you. If the idea of this daunts you, or you don’t feel that you have the time to invest then you’re probably not ready to start your search with us for a life partner.
