I may be a New Yorker, but I couldn’t think of many places I’d rather live than Orange County.

There doesn’t seem to be a winter that goes by where I don’t ask my wife, “Why exactly aren’t we living in California yet?!”  For those of you who have experienced East Coast winters that seemingly never end, you know exactly where I’m coming from!

On the surface, hiring a professional matchmaker in Orange County seems like a great outlet for meeting someone worthwhile.

Why not right?  Especially if you are financially flexible and have a little extra money to treat yourself.  Who wouldn’t want to outsource a professional to remove the stress of finding quality dates?

I know if someone told me six years ago that all I had to do was write a check and they’d deliver the woman who is now my wife, I would have instantly signed on the dotted line to avoid the hassle and frustrations that come hand in hand with dating.

But here’s the thing… it’s not always about the money.  It’s about the results.  And most matchmakers do not deliver on their promises.  I know this because I’ve had inside access to the business for over a decade.

In this article I will be sharing some of the most important things I’ve discovered about matchmakers over the past 15 years.  I encourage you to use this information at your discretion and then make your own informed decision.

What Matchmakers from Orange County Don’t Want You To Know

  • Matchmakers often use bait and switch tactics, as they usually don’t have the types of matches they promise.
  • Most agencies only provide 3-6 dates per membership, often not aligning to your expectations or preferences.
  • After breaking down prices, your cost per date will be in the range of $1,000 to $20,000 per date.
  • Matchmakers will often recruit your matches from online dating sites and platforms that you could be paying $30 a month for, or even using for free.
  • Some matchmakers have been exposed for employing “hired guns” in order to meet dating quotas.
  • There is little incentive to work hard once a matchmaker has your money.  They are often known for being dodgy once you are a member and avoid phone calls when they are questioned about not providing dates.  The most common response for a lack of dates is, “We are working on it.  Just be patient.”
  • Most agencies have extremely poor reviews or populate their review pages with fake reviews.  Read the reviews closely and it’s relatively easy to spot the fake ones.
  • The expectations of male and female members often don’t align.  When men pay thousands of dollars for a membership, they often have extremely unrealistic expectations of how their matches should look.  And for all you men out there, if you are being set up with women much younger and of model looks, they are likely meeting you for the wrong reasons.
  • Oftentimes matchmakers will avoid the phone calls and emails of clients until the client eventually just gives up complaining.  It often takes the threat of legal action to receive a refund or partial refund on the service for not delivering.
  • In mainstream society, meeting a couple that has met through a professional matchmaker is almost non-existent. This is extremely telling about the relevancy of the industry.

If matchmakers in Orange County are not worth the investment, what is the best way to meet people? 



After years of listening to stories from men and women who were ripped off by professional matchmakers, I decided to take action into my own hands to provide a service that actually works.  My goal was to take all the positive aspects of traditional matchmaking that theoretically worked, and combine them with the modern world of online dating for a process that actually works.

Since launching this service in 2013, my average client has found a relationship in approximately 2 months!  It’s all about putting the right system and process into place.  How do we work?  Just click here now to learn more about what we do…
