I received a call from a Denver single this weekend who told me that he is currently in another local matchmaking service which has now been sold twice in the six years it’s been in business.  His feedback was that the service was recently sold and the owner of the six year old one who said she would partner with the new owner up and left.  So, according to him, the person running this combo is now trying to run both individually, which he felt is good for the services but bad for the clients.  It’s confusing, the new owner doesn’t know the clients and this Denver single is skeptical it will work out for him.  The other service has only been around for 2 years and he also mentioned that he realizes now that he needs much more information than they supply.  2/4/14 Current information says that Duets Matchmaking is CLOSED according to YELP.

Another of their clients joined Bon Jour yesterday stating the same information but further saying that the new owner is not in touch. She claims to have tons of matches for her but does not respond to her calls and e-mails and she has not been set up with these “tons of matches”.  She also stated that the one time she was set up the new owner called and told her a couple of descriptive terms about the guy and that was it.  This client was left to trust the owner’s taste as far as whether she would like this match.  She also was interviewed at a Starbucks.

When asked what made them call Bon Jour Matchmaking they explained that they were looking for someone to work with that had been in business for a long period of time; knows all of her clients; and gets to know them personally enhancing the experience of finding a mate and has lots of information and pictures of prospective matches.  They both loved the website and the amount of information provided to clients for prospective matches as well as my input on clients.

There is no rule or law saying you can’t be in more than one service.  So if you are using an Internet Dating Site but are dissatisfied, you can also try a local service.  Even if you are in a local service you can try other local services that have a different structure.
