While I was comparing my options for a matchmaking service in Berkeley, I found Berkeley Matchmaking's transparency was the deciding factor. Other matchmakers wanted me to come in for a 2-hour interview, before even quoting me a price! Emily and her team treated me as an intelligent individual right from the get-go. They answered all my questions and I made the educated decision to hire them to help me, and I am glad I did. I am picky about who I meet, but Emily and her team have worked diligently on my requests. I am immensely satisfied with their personal attention and hard work!
Good men do exist in Berkeley, but sadly, I couldn't find any on my own. I wasn't finding people who were serious about meeting quality individuals and getting in a relationship on dating sites. It is just the reality of the world we live in. I wanted something way more meaningful, and I did find that with Emily and her team helping me. If you think your time is worth something, I recommend Berkeley Matchmaking.
Before I decided to try Berkeley Matchmaking, I had been online dating for a few years (like most of my single friends). I was truly disillusioned by the people I came across on dating sites. I am a complex individual with real emotions, ambitions, and apprehensions..a profile on a dating site just couldn't convey all that. Winking and emailing back and forth just wasn't for me. I really appreciate the personal interest the matchmakers at Berkeley Matchmaking showed in understanding me as an individual. I didn't just want to go out on a bunch of dates, I can do that on my own. I wanted to meet a select few quality men that I could consider spending the rest of my life with. If you are a relationship minded individual like me, Berkeley Matchmaking is a great service.
Berkeley Matchmaking is a world apart from other matchmaking services in the area. I had used two other matchmakers before - both of them used high pressured sales techniques and relied on blind dates. They promised me lots of options and fantastic dates while selling me, but in reality, the blind dates were complete letdowns. I love that with Berkeley Matchmaking I get to be actively involved in the process. I get to review any potential matches before I invest time in meeting them. Not every date I have gone out on has been a success, but my matchmakers take my feedback and the next date is always better than the last.
I love how Berkeley Matchmaking arranges the actual dates for me. I am new to Berkeley and Emily's team took care of all the minute details of the three dates I have been on! From picking out a restaurant to making an actual reservation, they are there to handle the details that I don't have time for!
I am divorced and a single mom which makes it really hard to meet people. Emily has been more than a matchmaker for me, she has been a friend and a coach who has helped me really evaluate my priorities in life! Sometimes finding the right one really does start with you BEING the right one. That was the most important lesson I have learned from Emily. Her coaching has helped me in regaining my confidence and discovering my strengths. Emily started with expanding my social circle before I was set up with any one on one dates, which helped build my confidence a lot. I really needed to get out of my house, and Emily made that happen.
I was hesitant about using a matchmaker at first, but now, looking back, I’m sure glad I took the chance! I don't think personal matchmaking is for everyone. But if you truly are ready to date meaningfully, I fully recommend you try Berkeley Matchmaking!
