All information about Denver matchmaking services has come directly from either printed reviews and material already online and/or from callers or clients. This is not my personal review.
Internet Dating Sites CAN Be Dangerous
Yesterday Dr. Phil had a female guest on the show who told a story of how she met a guy on Match.com. She explained that his profile was normal and he was attractive (they showed his pictures). So she met him and dated him for eight (8) days. Around the 8th day she found that he was looking over her shoulder when she used her cell phone wanting to know who was calling and who she had called. That was her first red flag.
That was enough of a red flag for her to stop seeing him. She actually bowed out of the relationship quite gracefully saying that she really wasn’t ready to date yet. Within a short period of time (not that day but I forget how long) she found him in her garage with a butcher knife. He proceeded to stab her all about her head and neck. Fortunately she was able to scream and a neighbor heard her and called the police. By the grace of God she lived but is still having PTSD lingering with her.
This guy from Match.com had no previous record, just like the “alleged” theatre murderer, and his goal clearly was to kill her. They showed pictures of her stabbed head from her hospital bed. He went to prison and ended up killing himself in prison.
So there are two lessons here: background checks don’t clear someone. Perhaps they just haven’t been caught yet! You can’t be a serial whatever unless you haven’t been caught. So services that charge you extra for background checks are worthless and it’s money thrown away. Also if someone is using an alias their background check will come up clean.
Additionally, several known felons have had profiles on Match.com such as Amy Fisher who tried to kill her lover’s wife, the “alleged” theatre killer, Dateline NBC had a story about another guy a woman met on Match.com. Just to name few who I can remember but I’ve heard of others. Obviously this is not just a Match.com issue. ANY Internet dating site is a perfect hiding place for felons as people lie on those all the time. Even people without records who are “normal” individuals but are crazy are hiding things on those sites. So BE CAREFUL when trying to save money by going on Internet dating sites. Is your life or your well-being worth saving a few dollars?
As a Professional Denver Matchmaker I work from my home office and in 25 years have never had an issue. But I am adept at screening people over the phone and if someone even sounds a little off (whether male or female) I will not accept them as a client. So I, myself, am your first line of defense both for myself and my clients.

Watching another episode of Dateline NBC where a couple had separated and the wife went on Match.com, met a school superintendent and had a friendship with him. Then she reconciled with her husband, he saw some emails to this superintendent and went out and killed him! The Internet dating sites are very dangerous…if nothing has happened yet, consider yourself lucky and stop using them.
