Matchmaker for Hire works exclusively with successful, well-educated singles and we pride ourselves on meeting each and every member in person in their homes.  Our vetting process is significant as we get to know more about our clients, their goals, and what they hope to find in their next relationship.  We are also a very small team; our clients are not handed off to junior staff or assistants once we decide to work together.  Our approach to matchmaking is team-based, and remains so for the duration of our relationship.

You deserve Love!

“I was happy with my first date but Jane insisted I meet Bert! Jane came to my house on a summer morning in August 2013, and we sat on my sunny deck barefoot and talked about my life for two hours; she met my dog, my kids, and she saw how I lived. I chose Jane because from what I knew about her, and that she would do the work for me and I didn’t need to share my photo and profile with the world, just Jane and her team.  It wasn’t too long after she called with an introduction for me, John and after a first meeting I found him as I thought, to be exactly who I was looking for, until intro #2.  Jane insisted that I meet Bert, I think she knew he was my perfect match, and she was right! Our cocktail date moved onto dinner and we met again the next day…….and forever after that.  Bert proposed to me in Bora Bora, 14 months later and we are getting married August 2016, exactly 3 years after our first date.  We are a match made in heaven and thanks to Jane she brought me my Prince!” – Tina R


Perhaps we could take a leaf from our canine companions and be less afraid of putting ourselves out there even if it is just at the park. If it works well, hell , you could be in for (dog’s) years of happiness. If not, simply put it down to BARKing up the wrong tree! #yearofthedog #chinesenewyear2018🐶 #matchmaking #datingadvice #vancupid❤️ #relationships #janecarstens
If it wasn’t for love, we’d be out of business.  Whether through disappointment, betrayal or the ongoing struggle to keep it alive, love fuels every letter to our mailbox — we all have the desire to be connected to another in a meaningful way. #vancupid❤️ #happyvalentinesday #loveonwest4th #loveinyaletown #bigloveball #matchmaking #love #janecarstens @rhondacc2015
Matchmaker vs. Cupid: Which one do you choose when it comes to finding love?  Would you rather get a visit from the messenger of love or a Matchmaker superhero who can save you from a dating disaster ?  With Einstein as Cupid what could go wrong!

What’s your definition of “Good Sex”?
We sometimes ask some things, because we can……. So, since we are approaching #valentinesday - what do you think…...What is great sex???
Did you know, according to a recent survey the best age for sex for women is 66 and for men it’s 64.  In sex, it could be that things don’t always work out as planned and people finally learn what they like when they get to a certain age. #matchmaking #datingadvice #mondaymotivation ##vancouversingles #victoriasingles #calgarysingles
Forget Tall, Dark and Handsome!  What women really want is a man who loves dogs.  Did you know that 3 in 4 women say they're likely to date someone who also has a pet.  Among men, the number is still a high 50 percent. #flashbackfriday to an article we did for @moderndogmag #fridayfeeling #mustlovedogs #datemedatemydog #matchmaking #dating #vancouversingles #victoriasingles #calgarysingles #janecarstens
We think she’s beautiful! #thursdaythoughts #matchmaking #dating #love #relationships

There are people online dating purely to seek out people they can "Sneat", with no intention of dating at all. It’s just a clever way of cheating your way into delicious free food at fancy date places. Ah those wily "Sneaters" -- Spot one before you're left penniless #sneaters #matchmaking #datingadvice #dating #vancouversingles #victoriasingles #calgarysingles
Success in dating, much like “Day Trading”, really boils down to two things; what’s going on inside your head and what’s happening with your results.

  • With Einstein as Cupid what could possibly go wrong?February 14, 2018 - 5:00 AM

    Testimonial: “You sure know me. I can only imagine the demands in matching algorithms…… You must be the Einstein of Love.” He said smiling. That’s what one of our clients recently had to say. Is there a formula for successful relationships?  You bet! The five-to-one ratio of positive-to-negative emotions suggests there is and the difference in […]

  • Going to a sporting event on a FIRST DATE, Yay or Nay?February 13, 2018 - 9:31 AM

    If she is a fan of the team, I don’t see why not – however normally I’d see it as a bad move, but all depends on how comfortable she is with it and if she’s excited to go then ……it’s a good move! With FIRST DATES, there should be 3 components to it.  You […]

  • Option Dating – Stacking ProbabilitiesJanuary 8, 2018 - 12:39 PM

    Success in dating, much like “Day Trading”, really boils down to two things; what’s going on inside your head and what’s happening with your results.  The key is to get the two in-sync with one another– rather than on the collision course to the calamity you may have it on right now. This basically means […]
