The most recent successful match from Bon Jour Matchmaking is a great couple.  Unfortunately, as with some couples who have met through Bon Jour they do not tell the truth when asked how they met.  How do I know?  They both told me.  And in addition I have received nasty notes from her since then.  Go figure…

When I started matchmaking I thought that one of the main perks would be how happy and appreciative clients would be when they met their spouse.  But it turns out that this can be a very thankless career, which still surprises me and saddens me.  When someone like a Matchmaker changes the rest of your life I think it’s appropriate to thank them (regardless of the fact that you hired them, not everyone attains that success who uses a Matchmaker) and show your appreciation by telling the people who ask how you met the truth.  That shows respect both to the Matchmaker AND your friends and family!

In 25 years I will never understand why some couples are not honest with their friends and family about meeting through a Denver Matchmaker…one would think that they would be grateful and appreciative to have found each other, however that happened.

As I said, they are not the first couple to not admit this and I have to say I really take issue with that.  Because I don’t advertise so that I may keep my fees lower than other services it is most important that successful couples tell the truth when asked how they met.

Keep in mind singles, what goes around comes around.  If you meet through any matchmaker please don’t mislead people about it.  Nobody really cares and it makes for an interesting story.  Also, you may help someone else who is looking for love.
