How do they match you

After your initial enquiry you will have a phone call with a matchmaker who will explain how the agency works, if you’re happy with this then a no obligation 1:1 meeting is arranged and they will go through a wide range of questions and they will get to know you. They’ll then write you a profile which they will ask you to approve before they send it out to any potential matches. Once you’ve agreed to meet a member we’ll pass over contact details and you can arrange to meet each other. It usually takes us around 4 weeks to find your first match.
