Frequently Asked Questions with Janine

What’s the Difference between the Matchmaking Club and Becoming a Client?

To put it simply, the Matchmaking Club is a free database where individuals can complete a small intake form which allows me to see their profile for my paying clients. If you sign up for the Matchmaking Club and are a potential fit for one of my clients, I will reach out to you and set up a time to talk and get to know you better.

If you would like individualized and active matchmaking services where I seek out others who might be a potential match for you, you will likely want to become a client.

Not everyone has the extra funds to seek out a partner, so Janine provides a free database for you to potentially meet some of her paying clients!
The Matchmaking Club exists to allow others the opportunity to meet with some of the wonderful and successful clients Janine works with regularly.
After filling out the intake form, you will become accessible for Janine to review your short profile. It’s a quick, easy form to fill out!

If you fit the criteria of one of Janine’s clients “on paper”, she will then contact you to set up a time to meet and learn a little more about you, your life, work, children, past relationships, goals, and what you are searching for. If at this point you seem like a positive fit, she will send over your first name and bio to the client for review. She will then sit with her client and discuss why she believes it will be a good introduction and set up a date for the two of you with the client’s permission!

Janine will check for availability of both parties, provide instruction for the date, and minimal information of either individual. This allows you to determine what you would like to disclose at your own pace!

We recommend two dates to become more comfortable and learn about each other in different environments.


I’m worried I may come across as a “loser” if I use a matchmaker. Is there a stigma associated?

NO! I can’t emphasize enough how impressed and flattered a potential introduction is when I contact them on your behalf. Women especially love when I have male clients because it shows the men are confident enough to call me in addition to being serious about investing in themselves to find the right partner.

Do you only work in Boston and SW Florida?

No! I have a nationwide network of candidates and colleagues I work with. If for some reason I am not the right resource for you, I can definitely refer you elsewhere!


Who is your typical client?

Our clients are accomplished men and women who are too busy with their lives to take a trial-and-error approach to dating. Our clients know what they want in a potential partner and are seeking a shortcut to finding this special relationship. Our clients understand that online dating and the single scene are not the way to find a relationship, and our clients value their privacy. Our average clients span a broad age range of 30 to 65.


Are J. Allen’s fees based on how long you work with me or how many introductions I receive?

We have programs that are either 6, 9, or 12 months in length with either set or unlimited introductions. The length and cost of the agreement reflects the nature of a client’s criteria and the difficulty of the search that is required to meet his or her expectations in addition to the number of introductions purchased.


Do I get my money back if I don’t like any of the people you introduce to me?

Matters of the heart can be quite unpredictable. We can only guarantee introductions to quality individuals who match your criteria. If you need to adjust your criteria after your first introduction, we are happy to work with you to make sure that you are meeting individuals who match your specifications.


How long is a typical agreement?

We have programs that are either 6, 9, or 12 months in length with either set or unlimited introductions.


How do you find your candidates for introductions?

Our job is a bit like detective work. You give us the characteristics of the person you are seeking, and we locate that person. We network, research online, attend events, join organizations, and often approach people on airplanes and in restaurants, shops, and public spaces if we think the person might be a candidate. We search in your home city, nationally, and even internationally.


Do you collaborate with other matchmakers to help source candidates for your clients?

Yes, we are members of the Matchmakers’ Club and Matchmakers’ Alliance, a society of over 200+ worldwide matchmakers.
