Why Matchmaking?  

 

Here is some of the feedback gathered from our existing client base as to why they have joined our Matchmaking Services - perhaps you can identify with some of them.
 
  • My children have all flown the nest and I’m rattling round this house on my own with no one to talk to
  • My friends are all in partnerships or married and I feel the gooseberry in their company
  • I work long hours at unsocial times and it’s hard to meet people
  • In my job it is not appropriate to be on online dating sites
  • All my mates are on online dating sites and there is a real bravado between us all pretending we are God’s gift to women. It’s not working for me and I know the chances of me meeting my future wife online are extremely slim.
  • I married my career and now I have retired I have no one to talk to - no soulmate, no children, no grandchildren but plenty of money but nowhere to go and no one to go out with
  • I hate events like weddings when you have no 'plus one' to bring with you and everyone around you is celebrating love and romance
  • My biological clock is ticking and as I genuinely would love to be married and a mother it’s time I stopped dating wasters and am now taking positive action in employing a Matchmaker – it’s so much less stressful having someone do all the hunting!
  • My worries seem bigger as I have no one to share them with or to tell when I am feeling happy about something
  • I was in a complete rut, spending all my time connecting to people on facebook but talking to no one
  • I had a great fear of online dating due to the stories of scams and meeting someone who said they were single but who are actually married. This service makes me feel safe as I know they have interviewed everyone and they are who they say they are
  • I love dining and going to the theatre but not a lot of fun on your own, so I decided it’s time to do something about it.

 

 

 

Why Attend Soiree Society Events?

 

Here is some of the feedback gathered from our existing client base as to why they have attended our Events - perhaps you can identify with some of them?

  • I do not know other single people the same age as myself to go out with and this provided the ideal opportunity
  • I love socialising but find that the bars are noisy, everyone seems so young and /or too intoxicated – this provides the ideal environment to relax and chat with like-minded people
  • I have lots of friends and family but can often feel lonely in a crowd as many of them are ‘couples’ … and it limits my opportunity to meet someone. It’s good to know that at a Soirée event everyone is unattached
  • I simply want to increase my circle of friends and this is a perfect environment to do so
  • I am past the stage of going out to clubs – this is different
  • I felt my world had got very small. This event has opened my mind to meeting new interesting people
  • I am extremely lonely and heart- broken after the break-up of my relationship. My friends are all in relationships or married so I either play gooseberry or stay at home as I have no one to go out with or no place to go. This has given me a reason to start going out again
  • I came along as I am new to the area and don’t know anyone to go out with
  • I love the opportunity of having a new social element in my life without any dating pressure
  • It’s great to have a reason to get dressed up with somewhere to go

Do’s and Dont’s

When looking for an agency, it’s useful to have a list of do’s and don’ts to avoid making mistakes

When joining an Introduction Agency

Do…

  • Always check that they are a member of the ABIA. Only ABIA agencies are bound to comply with their stringent code of practice.
  • Ask how many introductions you can reasonably expect to be given within your selected age range and area.
  • Use your membership sensibly. You must communicate with your agency to maximise your chances of enjoying a successful membership. Follow the guidelines as provided by the agency.
  • Persevere with your membership – success doesn’t always happen overnight. If you are unhappy about the way things are going, tell the agency as soon as possible to give them a chance to rectify the situation.

Don’t…

  • Join an agency using a PO Box number.
  • Join an agency using a premium rate telephone number.
  • Join an agency which is not prepared to give you details of their fees on the phone or in their literature.
  • Part with any membership fee without having been given the opportunity to visit the agency.

That First Meeting…

Do…

  • Be positive about yourself – a bright, cheerful attitude to life is much more appealing than a negative one.
  • Treat others as you would like to be treated yourself. Be polite if you decide you don’t want to meet up again. It’s much nicer to say ‘I’ve had a really nice evening but feel that we’re not suited for a long term relationship’ than to promise you’ll ring and have no intention of doing so.
  • Be yourself – don’t pretend to be something you’re not!
  • Always take reasonable precautions to ensure your personal safety.

Don’t…

  • Talk endlessly about your past relationships – it can be off-putting!
  • Drink too much or constantly run yourself down.
  • Feel pressurised into starting a physical relationship before you feel the time is right
