Marriage-minded people are also serious-minded when it comes to their dating. They know they’re going to have to do some work to find Mr./Ms. Right. And they’re willing to ask for help to make sure their search is effective. That means friends and family, online dating, group activities, hiring a dating coach, and even investing in high-end matchmaking services.

But some of those strategies can get costly — both in terms of money and in terms of time. We are talking over $10,000!  I recommend that you do your homework first. After all, your end goal may be worthy, but you want an effective plan with expert guidance to get you there.

The choices of dating professionals can get confusing. In addition to all the online dating sites, there are dating coaches, matchmakers, and even high-end matchmaking services. How are you supposed to know what is worth your trust, time…and money?

As a dating coach, I work with clients from start to finish, and I care about everything in-between. I’m not a personal matchmaker. But I get to know my clients thoroughly so I can direct them to the best sources for potential matches.

My clients and I work together to explore their relationship goals. We review their dating histories and challenges. We work on personal development, self-esteem, social skills, presentation, and communication. And we develop a strategy for their dating lives.

I am, as my title indicates, a life and relationship coach. I guide my clients into the best versions of themselves and into their best chances for finding lasting love. We look at how dating is fitting into your whole life plan. The strategies we create are well-rounded and include an online presence, social activities, and personal introductions.  I don’t leave any stones unturned.

A matchmaker, on the other hand, is a “pairing professional.” S/he finds high-potential matches for (usually) paying clients. The emphasis is on what the client is looking (and paying) for. The matchmaker may have candidates on-file or may have to go searching for them outside his/her internal database.

High-end matchmaking services grabbed a lot of attention with TV shows like Millionaire Matchmaker. The Bravo reality show followed matchmaker Patti Stanger as she matched wealthy clients with (supposedly) compatible dates.

And the Bachelor and Bachelorette series still keep singles starry-eyed and fantasizing about mansions, perfect bodies, and season-ending engagements.

But back to the real world where real people are looking for real love….

Should you invest in high-end matchmaking services? How do you know what you’re getting, if anything? And what makes “high-end” so… “high-end”? Even Millionaire Matchmaker had its share of untelevised deceptions that would make any potential client think twice about his or her investment.

Here are a few positives of working with high-end matchmaking services.

And here are some negatives that you should consider before convincing yourself that high-end matchmaking services are the answer to your dating dreams.

Whether or not you decide to invest in high-end matchmaking services, do your homework upfront. Know what you want and what you have to offer to a relationship. And be honest about why you would consider investing in a very expensive, exclusive service.

In the long run, your success in dating will always come down to your self-awareness, self-confidence, communication skills, decision-making skills and enthusiasm. Those are all extremely attractive qualities.  Since my clients meet their true love through other means, you most like don’t need to spend $1million to have a one-in-a-million relationship.
