From Shoutout Colorado Magazine:
I have stayed true to the structure of Bon Jour Matchmaking, Colorado’s oldest matchmaking service, for 32 years regardless of the internet, apps and local competition. I have limited overhead, I do not advertise and never have, I personally, face-to-face interview each and every client. I have current photos of each client along with a 6 page profile that is shared only with individuals who match 5 or 6 criteria each person has stated they desire. I regularly decline to work with singles who call who do not fit the general criteria of all of my clients. My goal is not to accumulate income but rather to find people who are a good match for my clients thus achieving their goal. I give every client an open ended contract as there is no way to know when the perfect match will appear. I wouldn’t want their contract to expire and then some time after that the perfect person comes in for them but too bad, their contract had expired. My clients’ contracts never expire thus giving them the gift of time!
The amount of coaching involved to make sure each new match has every chance of succeeding is ultimately the most valuable piece of this service. There are so many little misunderstandings, misinterpretations and lack of communications that go on it is important for me to clarify, counsel and share information so that this most delicate interaction may succeed.
