Five Things You Should Ask Before Hiring a New York Matchmaker

Finding love in a bustling city like New York can be a daunting task, and sometimes, enlisting the help of a professional matchmaker is the best way to navigate the complex dating landscape. However, not all matchmaking services are created equal. To ensure you find a reputable and effective matchmaker, it's crucial to ask the right questions before making a commitment. Here are five essential questions to consider:

1. What Is Your Success Rate?

Before hiring a matchmaker, it's important to understand their track record. Ask about their success rate in pairing clients with long-term partners. A reputable matchmaker will be transparent about their achievements and should have testimonials or case studies to back up their claims. Success rates can give you a good indication of the matchmaker's ability to understand and meet their clients' needs.

2. How Do You Vet Potential Matches?

Understanding the process a matchmaker uses to vet potential matches is crucial. Ask about their screening methods and criteria for selecting matches. A thorough vetting process should include background checks, personal interviews, and an assessment of compatibility based on values, interests, and relationship goals. This ensures that the people you are introduced to are serious about finding a meaningful relationship and meet your standards.

3. What Services Are Included in Your Packages?

Matchmaking services can vary widely in terms of what they offer. Some may include coaching, profile enhancement, and date feedback, while others might focus solely on introductions. Ask for a detailed breakdown of the services included in their packages. This will help you understand what you're paying for and whether the service aligns with your needs and expectations.

4. What Is Your Matching Process Like?

It's important to know how the matchmaker plans to find your perfect match. Ask them to explain their matching process in detail. Do they use personality assessments, psychological evaluations, or just personal interviews? Understanding their methodology will help you gauge how personalized and tailored their service is. A good matchmaker will take a holistic approach, considering all aspects of your personality and preferences.

5. What Are Your Policies on Confidentiality and Privacy?

Privacy is paramount when it comes to matchmaking. Ensure that the matchmaker has strict policies in place to protect your personal information. Ask how they handle your data, who has access to it, and what measures they take to ensure confidentiality. A reputable matchmaker will prioritize your privacy and have secure systems in place to protect your information.


Hiring a matchmaker can be a significant investment in your love life, so it's important to do your due diligence. By asking these five questions, you can ensure that you choose a reputable and effective matchmaker who is genuinely committed to helping you find a meaningful relationship.
