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.

Despite getting significant media coverage, we simply do our jobs well, and most of our clients actually come to us as referrals, which we love!  Our clients also appreciate our discreet approach to matchmaking, and value the importance we place on their privacy.  Client confidentiality is a core value at Matchmaker for Hire and we take the unusual step of not maintaining a cloud-hosted database, definitely a source of comfort for most.

Matchmaker for Hire’s matchmaking process is done client-to-client.  We represent both men and women as clients. We find that the successful, well-educated singles appreciate and value that both men and women are equally committed to this process, and also financially invested; when both parties approach an introduction with equal gravity, they tend to have greater respect for each other, and are more open to the possibilities that can result.

You deserve Love!

  • What Real Love looks like?— (Part one of a two-part post)March 1, 2017 - 3:06 PM

    Throughout our lives, we compile a picture of what we think real love should look like. Often this process begins early, as little kids listening to fairy tales envisioning our very own Cinderella and Prince Charming.  As we grow older, we often imagine finding a soul-mate, that perfect person who we were destined to spend […]

“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!”
