HOW TO BE A REALISTIC MATCHMAKING CLIENT
When hiring a Matchmaker you share the responsibility with the Matchmaker to work together, put your best foot forward, have an amicable relationship with that Matchmaker and be realistic in your expectations.
If you join a matchmaking service it is their responsibility to show your profile to the most appropriate candidates. Not to waste your time setting you up with prospects that do not fit your preferences. It is your responsibility to be realistic with your criteria and realize that whenever you are shown a profile you have the right to turn it down. Conversely when your profile is shown to a prospect they have every right to turn you down. Remember that although new clients come in every week they may not fit your preferences, be the opposite sex or select to meet you. So the key is patience…sometimes there is a match right away and sometimes it can take time until the right person enters the service. Try not to get discouraged if it takes time as it is better to be set up with a few great matches than tons of people who don’t fit your preferences!
The job of the Matchmaker is to go over profiles with each client and be sure there are no misunderstandings in the information set forth, also that neither party overly analyzes this information or reads into it. Using a Matchmaker will help you answer questions you’ve never even thought of. A Matchmaker will help you focus in on what’s important, even if it may seem superficial.
Additionally coaching is an important component of matchmaking. Many good potential relationships get derailed during the first month or two due to lack of communication as well as miscommunication. I am there to convey and correct these issues as well as if there is something you are doing consistently to sabotage relationships I will point that out to you so that you may address the issue. The last two marriages in Bon Jour would never have happened had I not gotten in the middle in the first couple of months and straightened out a lack of communication in both instances!
