We’ve read about various matchmaking methods available to the public. However, it can be overwhelming and confusing. The purpose of the article is to explain the three basic types of matchmaking services out there. Hopefully you will find this article helpful in making the RIGHT choice for your relationship needs and dating style.
1.) Algorithm Matchmaking – this method is most commonly implemented by online dating sites. Many individuals utilize this method for various reasons, increased availability – 24/7/365, low outlay of funds to subscribe to the sites. The down-side is you don’t really know who you’re dealing with, and the same profiles are offered repeatedly as matches, even though you have swiped left (No). Personalized service presents in the form of links to articles that describe dating dilemmas, help to create your profile, and some offer a free dating coach session. All services are primarily within the app. Subscribers are men and women. Typical costs range: free to $300 for six months or more yearly.
2.) Drive through Matchmaking – this method is implemented by companies that offer limited services to clients. There’s a market for this type of matchmaking service for those who wish to spend a small portion of time to begin and can move quickly into meeting blind (dates). Each match counts toward your contractual agreement for a subscription. This service may be attractive depending on what your needs and pocket-book allows. Subscribers are both men and women. Personalized service is limited. Typical costs range: $3,000 – $12,000 (varies with desired services).
3.) Full-Service Matchmaking – this method is implemented by high end matchmaking companies that offer a complete package (date & life coaching and image & lifestyle consulting) to meet the client’s needs to engage successfully for a match that goes the distance. Full service matchmaking companies utilize human algorithms. Some companies may accept men and women as clients, whereas others only accept men as clients. Check with the matchmaking firm prior to insure they can meet your needs and expectations. This service is typically more expensive, however personalized concierge services are available. Typical costs range: $25,000 – $500,000 + (varies depending on add-ons and desired services).
There’s a niche market for each of the three basic types of matchmaking services depending on your time, needs and available resources. Due diligence will facilitate finding the right matchmaking service just for you!
