Why hire a matchmaker?

24th January 2020

Reasons to delete Dating Apps

The Norwegian Consumer Council has found that a number of popular dating apps have been using data supplied y users and sharing it with third-party advertisers.

As the over 50's age group is surprisingly large, and getting larger, and as they still have a lot of life to live, , so what should you do to find that special someone to share that life with.

Firstly start in the right place. Meeting new people can be daunting  and that is why using the services of an experienced professional matchmaker, is ideal. We offer a safe, supportive service for all our members as we have personally met them and spent up to 2 hours getting to know them.  We therefore know that all our membrs are genuine and that they are not just open to a relationship, but are actively  seeking one. 

Secondly age is no barrier to a loving long term relationship. One of the many advantages of age is that you will now have a clearer idea of what's importnat for you. As a result of your life experience you've gained perspective which will help you to make better decisions. Never forget that research has shown that people who are in happy relationships live longer.

Finally always remember that a loving romantic relationship can increase self-esteem and confidence, especialy if you have been feeling  you have missed out. 

Modern dating is often seen as a very intimidating and stressful experience - essentially a minefield for singles. With so many online dating sites and countless Irish singles available at our fingertips, the prospect of actually falling in love may seem like a distant prospect.

At Perfect Partners, we are a professional dating/matchmaking agency in Dublin that understands that with so many available choices out there, it can be difficult knowing whether someone is right for you. Therefore, in order to help you on your journey of love, we have put together some of the signs to look out for when you are trying to figure out your true feelings during the dating process.

     1. You can communicate effectively

Communication is incredibly important in dating, as well as long term relationships, because no matter what, every human needs to feel connected with others. When you have a problem with someone, which you have chosen not to share, this could contribute more towards the problem than you realise. It’s important to communicate in an effective manner because it is the perfect way to show your partner how happy you are with the current situation, allowing you both to avoid misunderstandings that may cause hurt, anger, resentment or confusion.

      2. You love spending time together

When you have found the person you want to be with through our dating/matchmaking services in Dublin, you will not be able to get enough of them. This is a very important feeling to have, as you are potentially going to be spending a lot of time together. However, couples who like each other on paper, but don't actually like spending time together, are not going to last long-term. If you know that no matter how great your day might be going, your special person would make it better, that someone is right for you.

     3. You want the same things

 Despite the high amount chemistry you may have with this person, if there is no cohesion between your goals or ambitions, a long term relationship is just not going to work. Many people choose to ignore these signals, with the hope that the person may change or the situation can be dealt with later. However, this partnership only has the potential to go the distance if you can see yourself supporting this person’s wishes and aspirations, with them supporting yours.


     4. They fit into your life

One of the most important signs to look out for, when deciding if someone is right for you, is if you can imagine that person fitting into other parts of your life. For example, it does not matter how much you like this individual, if you do not socialise well with their kids, friends, or parents, this may be a warning sign of potential problems to come. The right person for you will be someone you know you want and need, complementing your personality and expectations - adding value to your life.

     5. You don’t have to hide any parts of yourself

There should be no need to have to diminish any of your personal values and vice versa. This may include your likes, dislikes, hobbies and future aspirations, allowing you to be real and authentic with them. You should never want to change them, and they shouldn’t want to change you, having a level of mutual appreciation, respect and understanding.

As the leading dating/matchmaking agency in Dublin offering the very best matchmaking services our dating/matchmaking services are for singles who are serious about seeking a long-lasting companionship and finding love.

To understand our matchmaking services in more detail, contact Sharon or Bill who can help you on your quest to find love.

Include all your relevant information and someone will get back to you to discuss how we can best meet your requirements.

If you have been single for years, recently out of a relationship, or just feeling lonely and lovelorn, we understand that trying to find a new partner is not always an easy task. As the leading dating/matchmaking agency in Dublin we have extensive experience in the world of relationships. To allow you to understand and appreciate the right process of finding love, we have put together some tips to help put you on the path to finding a loving relationship that lasts.

Know what you want

Knowing exactly what you want out of a relationship is very difficult, but it is always best to be honest with yourself and find ways to be consistent with your intentions. Take the time to reflect on your core values and find someone who will complement you. With our matchmaking services in Dublin, we can arrange an informal chat with you to talk about your previous experiences and where you would like to go - trying to find where your partner might fit into your plans for the future.

More than anything, distinguish between exactly what you want and what you need in a partner.  If you find someone who shares the same beliefs as you, it can lead to a much healthier relationship, as you would both cherish and want the same things in life.

Be more open  

Here at Perfect Partners, many clients come to Sharon and Bill with a particular mental image of a partner in mind. However, if you are looking to fall in love you need to understand that no one is perfect and having flaws is what makes us human. With our matchmaking agency services in Dublin, we will concentrate on the heart of what our clients are specifically looking for, but not focusing exclusively on specific factors alone.

Often, online dating sites encourage this ‘picky’ behaviour of finding perfect matches, as they provide users with the false illusion of there being limitless singles just a swipe away. When meeting individuals, you need to be interested in connecting with people and cultivating knowledge and building relationships that are going to last.

Learn to be a better dater

Dating can be very intimidating, which is why it is important not to put so much pressure on yourself and let us help you. We are a professional matchmaking agency in Dublin who will tell you more about what to expect on your journey to finding your perfect partner, helping you to understand your emotions and not be confused by them.

Have fun

Instead of scouring dating sites or hanging out in random bars for the sake of it, make having fun your primary focus when attending blind dates, as you will be meeting new people who share similar interests and values.

How can Perfect Partners help you?

We are a leading matchmaking agency in Dublin that can offer you a truly authentic dating/matchmaking service, exploring any possible matches that meet what you are looking for in a new partner. This includes factors such as race, religion, gender, personality, education, hobbies, interests, values, children, and much more. We will talk with you in person about your past, your interests and your requirements from a future partner, and if we think that we can help, we will invite you to become a member.

If you would like some more information about our dating/matchmaking agency services, please feel free to call us on 01 2896422, or complete the contact form on our website - where Bill and Sharon will get back to you as soon as possible.

Ireland’s Perfect Matchmaker


Are you sick and tired of the traditional dating scene in Ireland?

  • Are you fed up of waiting for Mr or Ms Right to arrive at your doorstep?

If you answered yes to these questions, you need the help of Ireland’s perfect matchmaker.

Love is a thing that many people expect to just happen. You just wake up one day and BAM you’re in love- but with that theory comes an element of chance, a certain aspect of “right place, right time”. Which leads us to believe that these people who believe that love just happens to you without your knowing, did not expect it to happen. They did not have a feeling of certainty.

Irish Matchmaker


“Life is a flower of which love is the honey” ~Victor Hugo There is an estimated 7.1 billion people on this planet, and out of that horde of individuals, 46% are looking for that one other person that they want to spend the rest of their life with. Easy. Not exactly, although the maths are in your favour, it has never been harder to find ‘the one’ and with stories of ‘childhood sweetheart’ filling our timelines, it seems like there is no hope.

Find Love in Ireland


Unlucky in love?

Have you tried everything and still cannot find that perfect partner? Are you looking for a committed, long-term relationship? If you answered YES to these questions, you are not alone! 

Or we do find someone and shortly after we realise that they are just not right for us, they don’t share the same likes and then we have to start all over again.

Tips on what not to do at the start of a new relationship:

  1. Don’t focus too much on the future, take it one step at a time.
  2. Don’t question every little thing.
  3. Don’t over analyse things.
  4. Don’t assume you are official before you actually are.
  5. Don’t act like your life revolves around them.



Are you at the point in your life when you want to find that special someone to share those cold nights with? Well you're not the only one! At Perfect Partners, there are thousands of singles across Ireland who have decided to put finding love into their own hands and start dating in Dublin.

I bet you are wondering how you go about finding the right person to take to that nice restaurant or bar you’ve been meaning to go to. Well Perfect Partners is the only answer.


Matchmaking in Ireland’s capital is made a lot easier with so many great places for the perfect date

Dating your perfect partner is the best part of signing up to a matchmaking service, and Dublin is one of the best places to do it. The city has so much to offer that it’s hard to know where to start, so here’s our guide.

Matchmaking is a Walk in the Park

Phoenix Park is a chance to get back to nature. A great place for a picnic with your date, this park is home to some of Dublin’s best greenery. The Emerald Isle is famous for its lush grass, and even in the nation’s busy capital this is still true.


As Dublin’s leading professional matchmaking service, we at Perfect Partners have our own view on Channel 4’s latest offering

The premise of Married at First Sight is that two people who have just met can get married, but we at Perfect Partners disagree. The idea is that, after a series of questionnaires, a panel of people can create six potential matches out of 1,500 applicants. The producers then arrange for the couple to get married, and they bride and groom meet each other for the first time at the altar. Despite what they claim, Channel 4 have not found the secret to love.


For Dublin’s best matchmakers, the matchmaking process involves listening, understanding, and paying attention to details.

Matchmaking is a system that has worked many times because of its straightforwardness. There are no hidden complexities and no tricks, just kind, informative, and intelligent people who know how to find your Perfect Partner. To show you how uncomplicated but effective the process is, here is a step by step guide.

Step One: Initial Meetings

We meet up and we talk. For some matchmaking services, this is a brisk one-on-one conversation that happens once and can be capped at half an hour. For us, this could be one of many conversations lasting two hours if necessary, and we make a point of having two matchmakers attend each meeting. We also don’t charge for the initial meeting. We want you to feel relaxed, not pressured into anything, so that you can reveal your true self to us. On this trust, we hope to move forward.


Professional matchmaking is relatively new industry, and so there are few misunderstandings about it.

Unless they have researched or experienced it themselves, most people don’t really know what professional matchmaking consists of. So here is the truth behind five popular matchmaking misconceptions.

It’s just like TV!

Fans of Kelsey Grammer’s successful sitcom will remember the matchmaker episode. Charlotte, owner of Charlotte’s Web Matchmaking, encourages Frasier to sign up to her service. After being encouraged to lie on his profile by his friend Roz, several bad dates, and watching his matchmaker break down and cry in front of him Frasier asks for his money back. Needless to say, Charlotte’s matchmaking service is absolutely terrible example….


dublin matchmaking service

Browsing through profiles and shaking hands with your own personal cupid are two very different services.

The dating industry has been on the rise for many years, and since the shady beginnings of the first online dating site 20 years ago, it has now developed to a point where there is a clear difference between online dating websites and bespoke professional matchmaking.


It is hard to find love in a world that is increasingly fast paced, but is resorting to online dating the solution?

Online dating has been hailed as the solution to dating for many years,which explains its surge in profits and popularity. However, those who are interested creating an account to find love should be wary of some of online dating’s many problems.

Last year, online dating fraud increased by a third

In a nine month period leading up to December 2014, online dating fraud increased by 33% when compared with the same period in 2013. This fraud cost the British public 34 million pounds, as opposed to 24.5 million pounds in 2013. In the past, online dating scams have included people pretending to be US soldiers in Iraq and people pretending to be cancer patients.

Online dating websites have been accused of sexism and ageism

Both the policies and the people involved in online dating sites have been accused of sexism and ageism by noted Washington Post journalist Caitlin Dewey. She heavily criticised the firing of Tinder’s only female co-founder and suggested that the nature of it reflected Tinder’s values, or lack of them, with regards to diversity. When it was revealed that Tinder were charging older people more for certain services, she went on to criticise not just Tinder but online dating in general for its obsession with youth.

Online journalist Alan Martin went further with his allegations of sexism and claimed that women who spend “any amount of time on OKCupid” are “likely to be indecently proposed or sent abusive messages.”

Online dating is full of clichés

Online dating is so full of meaningless or outright misleading clichés that the BBC decided to publish an article which translated the secret language of online dating clichés. Evidently, it is not enough to simply write about who you are. Using online dating means buying into a secret code.


A relationship is a complicated thing, and so the secret to finding a happy relationship is often shrouded in misinformation.

The truth is that a happy relationship requires hard-work and commitment. Yet, many people don’t want to hear this and as a result many myths about happy relationships still exist. Be sure to look out for these tall tales about love.
