Why use a Matchmaker

Guest blog by Tara, Professional Matchmaker at South Downs Introductions

I am a professional, trained matchmaker with a very high success rate based in Brighton, the heart of Sussex.  I set my company (South Downs Introductions) up a few years ago because of my own experiences when I was single.  It’s not a status I would like to have again as I believe it’s getting harder for people to find a great life partner.

People spend money on their cars, holidays, personal trainers and consultants.  Yet they leave their love life to chance.  There are so many single households in the UK and they are set to rise not decline, have a peek here in this article from The Telegraph .

Why should you use a matchmaker?

Online dating isn’t working 

You have given it your best shot, the years are ticking by and you still haven’t found what you’re looking for.  Experts say that you really need to dedicate at least two hours to online dating every night.  Then you need to meet the person as soon as possible rather than email back a fourth which usually fizzles out without the sniff of a date.

As a matchmaker I spend all a lot of my working day meeting great matches for my members.  I select the best match available at the time for my members and then they meet for a date to see how they get along.  With a 70% success rate there are now many happy couples sharing lives together that I introduced.  If I match 10 couples a week at least 7 continue dating long-term.


Matchmaking is safer 

Some people have had scammers approach them online and ask then for money.  Sadly some have been defrauded out of thousands of pounds which they will never get back. Online dating fraud victims lost £27 million last year,

With our matchmaking service we meet everyone and they are identity checked.  We know their name, address, date of birth so we know they are who they say they are.


Some people use our service because they don’t want their clients or employees see them using online dating services.  All our members sign a confidentiality agreement so they feel secure in the fact that it’s a lot more discreet.

We are the Experts 

We work with well renowned experts in the dating industry and what’s more we have won awards for our service.  We won the UK Dating Awards last year. and I am a Finalist again this year. Our service was also highly commended at the Sussex Women in Business Awards in 2015.

We have access to a great network of single people who really want to find love and this is all at our fingertips.  Based on our track record and success rate, if you joined our service there is a 70% chance that you would find love within four to six months.  That’s a pretty impressive success rate!
