Matchmaking companies are devoted to finding suitable romantic partners for their customers.
They gather information about clients from their initial online screening and interview and match them based on personality (stated and inferred) and preferences, and then use a pre-programmed system to match up the best potential pairs.
In addition to matching services, they also offer online dating profile management and date and relationship coaching.
Elite Matchmaking has been offering matchmaking services in some of the nation's largest cities for over 22 years.
Expect to pay anywhere from ,000–,000 a year for a set number of matches or introductions.
This fee generally includes an element of coaching, such as pre-date guidance and post-date feedback, which is a key service difference between matchmaking services and online dating.
It schedules events and outings that its members can sign up for and meet other people in the process.
