Here are answers to some frequently asked questions:
- Is there a difference between matchmaking and a dating service?
- Intuition, Science and Chemistry
- It’s tough out there!
- Who will I meet?
- What does it say about me, that I’m using a dating service?
- So how does this type of dating work, exactly?
- What if I’m hopeless? I just don’t know how to date.
There is a difference between true matchmaking and dating systems. Internet dating systems use technology to match people. As we often say, Cupid is not on the Internet! At Perfect Partners, people match people. We mix our expertise as trained professionals with old-fashioned, person-to-person matchmaking. We get to know your story—what makes you . . . you! We use our experience and personal touch to choose someone you will be compatible with. Then we introduce you to someone we think you will like, based on a happy merging of interests, backgrounds, and appearance preferences.
For your peace of mind, we perform extensive background checks on all of our clients. And we do not join everyone who comes to us. Our interview process helps us determine if potential clients are truly serious about seeking a relationship.
We enjoy hosting singles parties and events that are open to all members of Perfect Partners. They are a great time to come and safely mingle with other singles in the Lehigh Valley and New Jersey. We also have open houses and business expos. Of course, our Valentine’s day party is especially popular.
PART INTUITION, PART SCIENCE, PART CHEMISTRY
Because we love people and are experienced matchmakers, we have a certain intuition about how to pair people. But that isn’t all there is to it. We use other tools, like simple questionnaires, to learn about your own self image and what makes you tick. But most importantly, we get to know you like family and connect with what you’re looking for.
We listen closely to your reactions to the people you date. From those conversations, we continually learn how to pair you with someone who complements you—someone who maybe has what you’re missing, and you have just what they need.
Using our intuition and growing knowledge of you, we match for compatibility, interests, and background. The only thing we cannot provide is chemistry! Because when everything else is in place, and the chemistry is right, you may just have found the love of your life!
IT’S TOUGH OUT THERE!
You know it because you’ve already tried—or are afraid to because of all the horror stories you’ve heard. It can be tough to meet that special someone in a club or a bar, especially if you’re searching for a match who is in the same place as you mentally, physically, financially, etc.
- You don’t date where you work—jobs are too valuable in this economy to risk it.
- You don’t date clients—it complicates and endangers your professional relationship.
- You don’t date friends—why risk severing a friendship if the dating doesn’t work out?
And dating itself isn’t easy. Wouldn’t you love to have someone coach you through the process?
WHO WILL I MEET?
First of all, we put our years of experience and listening skills to work locating and identifying true relationship seekers. We recognize the signs people give off when they’re just in it to ‘play games’. We know that’s not what you’re looking for, and we can spot it a mile away.
We know you’re looking for people like yourself—nice single, divorced, or widowed individuals who are earnestly looking for a lasting relationship. Some people are seeking a companion, others are seeking a spouse. Either way, we will match you with someone with similar goals and dreams. Enter the process open-mindedly, treat each other the way you want to be treated, and you may end up falling in love!
WHAT DOES IT SAY ABOUT ME, THAT I’M THINKING OF USING A DATING SERVICE?
If you don’t want to be alone, and are having trouble meeting that special someone, it makes sense to chose a matchmaking service. We use lots of services in life to help us in areas we don’t have expertise. If you break your arm, you go to a doctor. If you need legal assistance, you go to a lawyer. And when you cannot find the love of your life, why keep diving through hay to find the needle in the haystack? It’s our business. We help people meet people every day.
SO HOW DOES THIS TYPE OF DATING WORK, EXACTLY?
First, we give you some very good advice. Dating isn’t easy, and you’ve got to give each other grace. Men and women both have preconceived notions of what you’re looking for. Maybe you’ve come out of a bad relationship. Or your spouse has died. Or you stayed in a marriage ‘for the kids’ as long as you could stand it, and now you’re on your own. No matter where you’re coming from, we tell you this:
Make dating fun.
The more fun you have, the more dates you’re going to have. The people who have the most success with our program are the people who treat it as fun. Keep a casual attitude and expect to meet some nice people. Everyone who comes through your life is there for a reason, and each person brings something new. But the one thing that everyone who comes through our doors has in common is that they want to date. So let’s keep it light!
WHAT IF I’M HOPELESS? I JUST DON’T KNOW HOW TO DATE.
We learn many things in life, but who trains us how to go on a date? So we give gentle coaching along the way. We understand that it’s not just the matching, but the guiding and coaching that you’re looking for.
We teach you how to relax and treat dating as fun. Start with a casual attitude. Trust us—go out with each person a few times, see how it goes. You have so much to offer someone, and we teach you how to let that show. You will be amazed at the good it does you when a date goes well.
We’ll show you pictures and talk to you about possible matches. We’ll help you understand that, if you want to find someone who will love you, you must be realistic, open–minded and not judgmental. We’ll remind you that you’re dating a person, not a picture. And just like you are more than a photo and a paragraph, so are they.
If you haven’t been on a date in a while, we’ll coach you on how to dress appropriately. We want you to relax and be yourself, but also to think considerately of the other person. Sometimes that’s a fine line, so we’ll discuss how to treat your date with respect.
And remember: Relax. Have fun. You’ll be fine.
