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!

“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!”

I know for a fact that one of the most incredibly important parts in our mate selection process is the first kiss.  The first kiss—well it can only happen once and it is the set up for the relationship that will follow. 
As I write this, I hesitated because I realized that over 60 % of my clients coming out of long term relationships, haven’t had a first kiss in many years.  Many have stated they couldn’t remember what it felt like or how it made them feel because their memory was from so long ago.

So Pucker up!  Being single again has its rewards---the anticipation of looking forward to your next first kiss and the excitement that comes with it. ***

Such a privilege to encourage others to write #youeareloved notes  at #sayitbigger #bigloveball with @wenwillwatt --- it was actually quite easy - who doesn't support LOVE ❤️ 📸credit @imsampark
"Anywhere. Everywhere. This word LOVE is a noun and a verb. It is the single most important concept in the world. 
It's positive . It's imperative.
And as I always say, if you see the message, it's meant for you"......quoted @wenwillwatt @bigloveball #sayitbigger #love #fridayfeeling #matchmakerlife
We survived !!!! @amberseattle is our staple! They shut down an entire neighborhood just so we could celebrate Alex's 30th birthday ! #birthdaygirl #30thbirthday #vancouverfamily #matchmakerlife #labordayweekend #matchmaking #westinseattle @westinseattle
Believe it or not, Labour Day is an annual holiday to celebrate the achievements of workers.  These labouring “Cupids” are taking this as a break and last chance to travel before the end of summer and the start of helping others who are looking for romance and fall foliage!!!! Seattle here we come! @miss.matchpoint @skipbrowne 
Did anybody have an awesome summer romance they want to tell us about?

  • Sometimes the Right People are Hard to SeeAugust 29, 2017 - 5:06 PM

    It’s hard to see what’s right in front of you —literally. I say this because I feel that this seems to happen quite frequently in the lives of the singles that I meet.  Things especially in dating, that are obvious and right in front of us tend to get overlooked, taken for granted or assumed […]

If you have decided to leave it to luck alone — I decided to turn to the science of it and research some Stats Canada data to find the highest concentrations of single […]
