New York City Matchmaking is a world apart from other matchmaking services in the area. I had used two other matchmakers before – both of them used high pressured sales techniques and relied on blind dates. They promised me lots of options and fantastic dates while selling me, but in reality, the blind dates were complete letdowns. I love that with New York City Matchmaking I get to be actively involved in the process. I get to review any potential matches before I invest time in meeting them. Not every date I have gone out on has been a success, but my matchmakers take my feedback and the next date is always better than the last.
