Matchmaking – FAQs

It's not that you can't find a date. Finding a real connection — that's the challenge.

Why work with a Matchmaker?

The decision is made to work with a matchmaker for different reasons. For many, going the personal and private matchmaking route is an alternative to the impersonal and public world of online and mobile app dating. It’s also a logical choice for super busy professionals who are used to out-sourcing or hiring assistants and see the value in being just as proactive with their love lives. While for others, the old-school concept of face-to-face contact and the personal touch of a matchmaking agency is just plain appealing, especially if they haven’t dated in a while.

Who are your clients?

We work with single professionals (30 years old and up) throughout the Toronto and Ottawa areas, and beyond. We understand the urban dweller but we also get the dating challenges faced by singles who prefer the quiet of the suburbs. All of our clients are managing busy careers, businesses (or retirements!) and some are also raising children.  If you are farther away that’s ok, too. We can talk through Skype and our affiliation with other reputable matchmakers means we can help you no matter where you live.

What does working with us look like?

We want you to have the best opportunity to make a true connection. To that end, we offer a high-touch, boutique level of service. Our all-inclusive approach includes pre-screened and curated introductions, one-on-one coaching (because we all have our blind spots), image consulting where needed, and professional photos.

Please review our Work with us and Process page for more about our full-service approach.

What’s the difference between working with you and joining your singles network?

Working with us means we actively search for matches on your behalf. When you join our free singles network you will only be contacted for further screening if you are a potential match for one of our clients. We encourage all singles who visit our site to join our network here. You never know and you have nothing to lose.

Where do you find matches for your clients?

We have our ways! In addition to the Mutual Match network of screened singles, we conduct private searches through social networking, personalized recruitment in GTA communities, and through our affiliation with other reputable matchmakers. We are constantly networking on your behalf.

Will you show me pictures of potential matches?

We will, even though we all know that you can’t judge a book by just it’s cover.

Do you provide a guarantee that I will find love?

As you know, there are no guarantees when it comes to matters of the heart. But we've designed a system that will help you put your best self forward to give you the best opportunity to find your future partner. To start, we help our clients connect with and get really clear on who they are looking for. From there, we develop a customized dating strategy that will help you be successful with Mutual Match (and with your own dating efforts!). As well, during the matching process, ongoing support and encouragement are always included, before and after the date.

What sort of training have you received?

Terran Shea is a certified matchmaker and Mutual Match is a certified matchmaking business with The Matchmaking Institute out of New York City. The Institute was established in 2003 to set a code of ethics and strict quality standards in the matchmaking industry. Terran is also a Certified Date Coach.

How is your matchmaking company different?

We are a boutique matchmaking company that offers a truly personalized service. We meet with you in person, we call you often to provide updates, and we encourage you to call us. We touch base before every first date and then after, and we provide one-on-one coaching throughout the process. It's a partnership every step of the way.
