Our Matchmaking Process
Fast, Easy & Effective Methods for Achieving Romantic Success
Our matchmaking process is fairly simple however it also can be fairly intense in an effort to quickly identify a host of potential ladies that may become your future lifemate. The normal process will take between 90 and 120 days (3 to 4 months) but, depending upon the client, can proceed faster or slower. Every client’s needs, preferences, and personal situations are different. So, of course, we take that into consideration and can adjust our matchmaking process accordingly and customize our initial plan to your needs.
Below is a general outline of how our Professional Executive Matchmaker plan works:
This is a little bit of preliminary work on your part prior to making the decision to contact us.
- We highly encourage you to explore all of the information on our website so that you have a good overview of what you are about to experience with our company and services. Take some notes. Make a list of questions to ask. This will give you the best level of understanding of the entire process BEFORE you take the next step in your journey.
- Understand that we are a specialized INTERNATIONAL matchmaker. Our focus is to expand your romantic horizons beyond your local borders under the assumption that you have not had much success finding a special person within your own region or country. If this is not within your scope of interest, we can often recommend some reputable matchmakers that may better meet your needs.
- Explore how much our matchmaking services cost. And your responsibilities in this regard. We are one of the few professional matchmakers that actually clearly publish their fees and the nuances of those fees depending upon your needs. All things considered, we think that you will find our costs to be surprisingly reasonable.
- You can also explore some of our active women's profiles from different regions of the world to see what real opportunities may be available to you. We have literally tens of thousands of active ladies who are serious about finding someone special in their life.
- As an arm of the AFA Singles Network, we have literally hundreds of corporate and affiliate offices across four continents worldwide supported with more than a thousand assistant matchmakers and support staff. Generally, this would include Asia, Europe, and Latin America. Usually, our clients will focus on one of these major regions for their search and our basic matchmaker fees include one of these regions. Expanding your geographical search may incur additional costs since we have to engage additional staff in the process. Your choice(s) can be discussed however you should formulate an idea of what your geographical preference may be.
- Having done your research and somewhat educated yourself as to what our services entail and how your experience will work, you can make the decision to move to the next step and contact us to explore your opportunities further WITHOUT ANY OBLIGATION whatsoever.
NOTE: If you are thinking that our more intense Executive Program is not for you at this time, you can still explore your international dating and marriage opportunities by participating in our International Singles Network. While still matchmaker assisted, this will be less personal and more of a premium DIY approach that can STILL give you a tremendous opportunity to find and meet that special person for you.
You have explored our website, made some notes, and are interested in getting some questions answered and exploring the opportunity more. Again, there is no fee or obligation to do this.
- You can call our main office in Phoenix at (602) 539-8000 anytime during normal business hours (MST). Or you can submit our “Interest Inquiry Form (Get Started)” with a few details about you and have one of our executive staff contact you.
- This initial contact conversation can be by telephone or Zoom or Skype video. We want to make sure that all parties have sufficient time and attention to answer all of your questions during this initial conversation. That said, if the initial contact is not convenient for both parties, we may want to schedule a more convenient time for both parties.
- If you are feeling serious at this point, you may also complete and submit our in-depth “Preference and Personality Assessment” form. This is optional at this time however just gives us a little more information about you upfront.
- Subsequent to this conversation, having addressed all of your immediate questions, concerns, and objectives, you can make the decision as to if and when you may want to continue the process.

But, in either event, you have gathered enough information to know that you want to move further into the process. As before, there is NO matchmaker fee for this meeting although the client is responsible for any costs that may be incurred to facilitate this meeting (travel costs - which can be discussed beforehand).

- We arrange a day for an extended personal meeting with you that will normally last about 4 hours (normally including lunch).

Conversely, you also get the opportunity of getting to know the people, in person, whom you will be working with throughout the process giving you a much higher comfort level.

If you have photos or videos that you would like to include, you should provide them at this time.
- During or after this meeting, if you have not already, you can decide if you want to make a deposit for our services and agree to move forward. Up to and including this meeting, there is no obligation on your part beyond any costs that may have been incurred to facilitate the meeting.
