Our research shows that many people find the dating scene in N.Ireland difficult to navigate and some are held back for a variety of reasons, including:
Soirée Society's professional and discreet matchmaking service provides the perfect solution.
Our Matchmaking service operates very much like a good recruitment company.
Many employers who have a vacancy will employ a recruitment company to help them find the best candidate for the job. Why do they do that?
Well, it saves the company a lot of their own time sifting through random applications, interviewing, shortlisting, checking credentials and agreeing the appointment. In the long run, despite the cost of paying the recruitment company, it actually can save them a lot of money and time and is therefore an investment in their future as it significantly improves their chances of getting the right person for the job.
We work in the same way, the only difference is that our employer is our active member who wants our help in finding them the right person to fill a vacancy in their life.
We can save our clients a lot of time and money spent on surfing online dating sites, numerous pointless emails, texts, nights out and dates which can lead to nowhere fast.
We are certainly not knocking online dating as many people have successfully met their partners online. However statistics show that whilst many people surf the net for a date, the long-term success rate remains poor and many become disillusioned after the first flurry of excitement has worn off.
In addition, there are many reported issues relating to authenticity and safety that go beyond made-up profiles and false or out of date photos.
The incidence of online dating fraud in the UK reached a record high in 2016 where almost 4000 victims of so-called romance fraud lost over a record £39M. In addition, crimes linked to online dating including rape and blackmail have more than doubled in the past three years with 85% of victims thought to be female.
The main problem for many with online dating, and in particular for professional people, is the lack of privacy, and the waste of valuable time spent wading through hundreds of random profiles, many of whom are just looking for the casual date rather than a long lasting relationship.
In many circumstances we have seen how online dating has not only messed with people's hearts but has also messed with their heads as rejection and poor dating experiences have led to loss of confidence and low self-esteem.
Therefore employing a Matchmaker can be a much better alternative as it is private and confidential and you know that everyone on our books has been authenticated and are also looking for a long term relationship.
Unlike online dating, we are concerned more with quality introductions rather than quantity and as a result many of our clients are now successfully matched and enjoying the added dimension and happiness that this has brought to their lives.
