I am hearing from Denver singles on a regular basis how disappointed they are in the local matchmaking services they’ve chosen. It is always the same reasons…too expensive, no information or photos of prospective matches, matches who are not even close to the criteria set forth initially/ongoing and a lack of interaction with the owner/matchmakers once they are a client and do not respond when you contact them.
Don’t work with “matchmakers” who really have no experience in this field and have been educated and working in some other vocation but thought matchmaking would be fun. It’s too serious to you and too much money to “play” matchmaker.
If you are the type of person who wants to see a questionnaire and pictures of prospects why are you letting someone talk you into eliminating that to do it their way. Especially, in certain instances, when the owner/matchmakers haven’t been doing this business for very long.
Also, don’t join a service that doesn’t fit for you because you liked the owner. That is ridiculous! You should be taking a good look at the structure, what information and services you are paying this fee for and how long the person has been matchmaking. Obviously the longer someone has been matchmaking (and I don’t mean for other companies who did it differently) makes a HUGE difference in your success and experience in their service. I’m not saying to ignore your interaction with the owner, however after 33 years in Denver matchmaking I can tell you that even with a client that was not the best partnership for me, that had nothing to do with my interest or success in reaching their romantic goal. It is one component but should NEVER be the entire reason to ignore all of the other features.
Rather than make a large investment in services that don’t fit for you, shop through a Google or Bing search Denver matchmakers, Denver matchmaking, matchmaking in Denver and call them, then compare. If you are willing to spend thousands of dollars then you should be willing to do your homework prior to spending it.
Last, but not least, services that have limited contracts and/or limited matches (where you purchase a specific number of matches) are a waste of your emotion, time and financial resources. They have their own agenda and it is all about the money, not you. As I’ve said several times on this site, a service that won’t quote you their rate on the phone and interviews you in coffee shops or hotels (anywhere outside of a private office) should be avoided! If you follow this advice it will save you a lot of frustration and money.
