CATCH Concierge Service 

YesThis world class service is available with all levels of membership.Through our CATCH Concierge Service we coordinate your first date, telling you the place, time, and date.  All you have to do is look great, have fun, and flirt!  This process eliminates awkward first phone calls, emailing, texting, or playing phone tag.  Our clients love it!  We follow up with both parties after the date and give honest feedback.

The CATCH Concierge Service is available even after we’ve matched you.  Want to plan a romantic getaway?  We already know you and your match, so let us help.  Tell us what you have in mind and we’ll help you make it happen.

Matchmakers Who Are Experienced
 

Yes 

Our matchmakers not only have degrees in Psychology, Sociology, Communication, and Business, but have over two decades of connecting people together.  They are full time matchmakers so their commitment to their craft is also 100%.  Katie and May have no other jobs.  This is their brand and company.

Some 

Be cautious of matchmakers who are part time and also have a side job.  They are not someone who will have your interests at heart 100% of the time.  Meet them in person to see if you connect with them.  If they don’t look like someone you trust with your love life, then keep looking for that perfect matchmaker.

Franchised 

No 

We have no high advertising fees so they are not passed on to you.

Yes 

Often times, you deal with the salesperson, and not the matchmaker. Their advertising costs are passed on to you in your fees.

Selectivity 

Yes 

We screen and make sure every member meets our criteria. If we cannot help you, we will refer you to someone who can. We accept your credit card in person, after we both decide it’s a good fit.

Some 

Many companies accept credit cards online, allowing anyone who pays to join.

Better Business Bureau 

Yes 

We are with the BBB and have a Grade A standing.

Some 

There are two matchmaking firms in Los Angeles with Grade A standing.  Do your homework and check their reviews online.

Interviews 

Yes 

We conduct a thorough one-on-one interview in person with all clients.

Some 

Because some matchmaking firms have open-enrollment, they do shorter interviews over the phone. Few do the 90-minute, one-on-one in person with all members.

Equal Ratio of Men to Women 

Yes 

We average 50% women and 50% men at all of our singles’ events.  Our female database is one of the most up-to-date in the industry.  It may not be the largest, but they are real singles who are ready to meet a great partner.

No 

Many dating organizations have many more women than men, hence the complaints online and to BBB.
