How does it work?

After an initial phone call and if we decide to proceed, we meet somewhere mutually beneficial. I come to you since it is more efficient and speeds up the process, so I can meet you for lunch, dinner, coffee, at your home—wherever is most convenient.

Once we spend a significant time together (plan on at least one hour) where I gather detailed information about yourself, including family life, past relationships, and what you are seeking. Then I send you an Agreement for review. Agreements are based upon either the number of introductions or the amount of time we work together, which may include unlimited introductions. When we meet I will discuss this with you and, based on your lifestyle, we will decide which is your best route.

Once the Agreement is in place, I begin your search. I start within my database and my other social networks, but other than that, I recruit! I network wherever it takes to find the right introduction for you. If I advertise on your behalf, your description will be so vague it will be extremely difficult for an outsider to figure out you are my client.

I meet everyone before you do. It may take some time between introductions because even though you and I aren’t arranging dates, I am still actively interviewing potential dates for you behind the scenes. When I have an introduction for you, I share the person’s bio with you. I typically arrange blind dates, but it is open to negotiation and is reflected in the Agreement.

Once I collect one another’s availability, I set up the date. If it is a place or time that requires a reservation, I will make it under the man’s name. Both parties always meet at the host area and should never be seated prior to the arrival of the other.

The day of your date, I provide both parties with the other’s cell phone number. This is only to be used prior to a date if you are late, can’t find the person, etc. The only information that is available to my Client’s date is your name, the type of work you do, if you have children, the area of MA you live, and your cell phone number. Whatever else you decide to share when together is up to you. This process ensures confidentiality until you are ready to disclose more about yourself at your own pace!

I realize first dates may be awkward for some, so I always recommend at least two dates to see if you are a fit for one another and provide the opportunity to learn more in different environments. This said, if you want to go out with your date again, ask them directly after the first date. You may communicate with one another via the cell phone number provided and don’t need to go through me! However, after the first date, it is mandatory for both parties to give me feedback on the date within 24 hours. Any feedback, positive or constructive criticism, will be shared with you to help make your future dates more successful and also provide me with better information about the right match for you. This is where the fine tuning comes in and we really tweak who will work for you!

I become allies and friends with my clients. As your most personal search, it will be imperative you share your thoughts with me, even though you might feel badly saying certain things! This is our partnership to find the companion you are seeking.
