Under the Sheets: What Really Happens When you Sign up for a Matchmaking Service?


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.

Step Two: Decisions

After having spoken with you, we then start our planning. We look through our extensive list of clients and we decide who would make a good date for you. From years of experience, we know what kind of people work together. There is a science to love, but this science does not come from numbers or algorithms, as online dating websites would have you believe. Rather, the science of love comes from exactly the places where people would expect: emotions, personality, the body, the mind, and the brain. This is why we make such an effort to understand you as a person, rather than as a profile.

Step Three: First Dates

First dates can be exciting and terrifying all at the same time. However, the joy of a matchmaking service is that you do not need to worry. We do the hard part, the organising of the dates, and all you have to is be yourself. Going on dates, like anything else, is something that you can get better at with time.

Step Four: Falling in Love

This is the ultimate aim of our service, but there is no time limit. We will stick with our clients for as long as it takes to make sure that they find the right person for them. How do you know when you’ve met the right person? Believe it or not, there is a science to this too. Although all this research only confirms what millions of hours worth of love songs, romantic comedies, and poets have told us for years. Evidently, the symptoms of being in love are that you smile when talk about your lover, you remember specific details about them, you generally feel happier, and being with them can cause euphoria. Who would have guessed it?

“As you know, I had been very reluctant to get back out into the dating world following the break-up of my marriage. But I can honestly say that you made it exciting and really very enjoyable. I couldn’t wait to meet the people you thought I might like (and you were always right) and I began to look forward to the adventure and the romance (which didn’t always happen but I had fun). Now I have found Mary and I’m very grateful to you for that.”
