Recently I’ve had the experience with several new clients when they initially called asking what an “open-ended contract” meant. Other Denver matchmaking services may refer to it as a “Lifetime Contract” or a “Platinum Package” and charge you a lot extra to have that benefit. EVERY client of Bon Jour has an open-ended contract! That’s the way it should be if you are a REAL matchmaker. You never know when that right person will present and you want to be there when they do! The longest so far that I’ve worked with a client is 11 years and she DID get married in that 11th year to a man who became a widower the year before and joined my service after that…see, you never know when…meanwhile that widower married the first woman he met (my 11 year old client!).
My feeling is that calling it a Lifetime Contract or package is kind of depressing. Also that is not what I mean by open-ended. What I mean is that you are a client until…until you meet the right person and feel that you’ve accomplished your goal whether it be marriage or a lifetime partner. It does not mean that once you’ve left the service for whatever reason you can just come back. If you tell me to “drop your file” that will END the contract. If you wish to come back in then you would have to start from the beginning. I would have to re-interview you, etc.
What I’ve been told makes people suspicious is what I referenced above. Other Denver matchmaking services charge so much more, if they even offer that option at all. Every client in Bon Jour Matchmaking Service receives this contract. As I’ve said throughout this site, I cannot promise that the day you join the perfect person will be here waiting for you. They might be but I have no way of knowing that. So you need to have the time for that “right” person to join the service and we don’t know when that will be. But you surely want to be here when they do.
Services that offer limited contracts do not give you the time for that right person to present themselves. They are most interested in trying to re-sign you again to make another fee. In Bon Jour you only pay the filing fee once, at the time of your initial interview. That’s it, you’re in until marriage, moving out-of-state or death do us part…
I hope that clarifies what I mean by open-ended contract.
