Online dating is, in fact, one of the reasons dating is so much harder now than it was 20 years ago, and one of the biggest challenges facing people reentering the dating pool after a long hiatus, and not just because the technology is confusing and time-consuming.
The truth is, online dating gives people too many options. It also makes people way too picky, as everyone expects to meet someone on a first date and immediately fall madly in love. We have become even more unrealistic in our criteria of what we are looking for in a partner. Since technology is so advanced, we believe we can basically invent our partner. This is also why matchmakers are becoming more prevalent in modern day.

How would you describe your clients? Busy, discerning, high-net-worth men who do not have the time or social network necessary for selective, relationship minded dating. I am their relationship coach, matchmaker and image consultant. Why would you suggest someone use a matchmaker? Online dating sites and apps do not help you to grow and evolve or provide dating and relationship coaching. They do not have human intuition or the ability to screen, vet and conduct background checks on potential partners.
You have to do all the work! Matchmakers prevent you from meeting the wrong kinds of people and can work with you to change undesirable relationship patterns. What makes your services different? I offer a two year, three phase post-divorce program to help ease my male clients into dating and finding a relationship after marriage. When a man has been married for 20 years or more, he is no longer the same person as when he was last dating or looking for a relationship.
How do you find clients and what do you look for? My clients come through referrals or I meet them at social functions and events. Often, they have been through one or more marriages and want to get it right this time. Many come to me for help because they have made some bad decisions and no longer trust their own judgement when it comes to finding a suitable companion.
What are red flags when you're looking for clients? People who are serial daters who have not had relationships longer than six months in the past ten years tend to raise a red flag. Men and women who dedicate a great deal of time and energy putting down their ex partners or are unable to take responsibility for their part are generally not going to be as successful working with me as somebody who is more open minded.

Avgitidis hosts the Matchmakers Conference each spring and collaborates with other matchmakers internationally. Why do you think more people are using matchmakers now? I think the major thing that has brought in a ton of business from our clients this past 18 months we've been around for nine years is the oversaturation of online dating apps and people experiencing dating app message fatigue.
What do packages typically cost? Clients range from 26 to 62, with the average age falling between 35 and Errol Gluck is a life coach. Platinum Poire currently has more than members and they turn away more people than they take. After four years, 10 couples are currently in long-term relationships.
