We at New York Matchmaking are all about transparency. We want to give you all the information and answers you need in order to make an educated decision about whether we would be a good fit for you! While scheduling a consultation is the best way to get all your questions answered, below are the answers to the most common questions.
Is this real New York matchmaking?
Yes, absolutely! We run a very professional yet personal matchmaking service for New York singles, where we get to know each client before searching for matches for them. Our approach is very effective, and we are successful because of the way we care and pay special attention to each and every client.
How do I get more information so I can see if this is something I want to do?
All you need to do is request a Consultation by filling out the “Book a Consultation” form. We will contact you to schedule a Consultation for you with one of our phenomenal Matchmaking Consultants. This isn’t a high-pressure sales call – it’s a consultation, designed to tell you about our process, answer your questions, and learn more about you and what you’re looking for.
Do I get to see photos, or are they blind dates?
You get to see photos! We will explain more during your Consultation, but we don’t do blind dates (unless you’d like us to). Other companies do blind dates because they knowingly set you up with incompatible people and they know you’d say “no” if you had the chance – or that your date would say “no”. We’re not here to waste your time!
How do you screen my matches?
Any potential match goes through our rigorous screening process. After we’ve collected a potential match’s photos and information, we screen them by going through their information and comparing it to what you’re looking for. If someone seems to be a good match, we will then contact them to set up an interview. During the interview we cover the process in detail and answer any questions they may have. We then find out more about them, and finally we tell them a little about you to make sure they’re a mutual match. If so, you’ll receive a bio on them and we’ll arrange the time and place for you to meet.
How can I know my matches are also serious about finding love and not just dating?
We put potential matches an intensive interview process. By the time they’ve gone through all of our submission and interview processes, we know they’re serious! This is also something we screen very carefully for, since we only work with New York clients who are interested in a serious, long-term relationship and not just out to go on a bunch of dates. Remember, we are not a dating service.
Does matchmaking result in long-term relationships and marriages?
Of course! The thing about matchmaking is that you SHOULD be introduced only to people who you are compatible with, based on your priorities and preferences, among other things. Not all companies care about the compatibility like we do, but we know it’s OUR job to do all of the background work and set you up with the highest chance of success. The rest – chemistry, attraction and dating– is up to you!
Is this private, or can people see my photos and info?
It is completely private. Potential matches will only know basic information about you, and only actual matches that you’ll be presented will know your first name and possibly see a photo if you so wish. Even when you meet, we don’t give out last names or other identifying information, and we only give out contact information with your permission for date communications purposes.
