Choosing Agape Match
At Agape Match, we offer executive matchmaking for exceptional singles. For over 10 years, our matchmaking programs are exclusively curated for our clients.
If you’re like most New Yorkers, you value your time and privacy. While you have no problem dating, you do not have time to go on bad dates and your career may not exactly be swipe friendly. You may have even exhausted your friends’ blind date capabilities. You’re ready to hire a matchmaker whose expertise and charisma will assist your quest in finding a fun and healthy relationship. At Agape Match, we arrange your matches based on your unique match criteria and our award winning matchmaking methodology.
What is Agape Match’s Matching Methodology?
At Agape Match, we know that no two clients are alike. When we meet our clients, we take into account their dating history and relationship endeavors. We learn about their communication style, their lifestyle, and their family values. We also learn about our client’s Attachment style and Love Language. The learning doesn’t stop after our initial consultation. We take extensive notes after your first few matches to learn more about your dating personality. By compiling a matchmaking personality profile on you, we are able to effectively calibrate the search for The One. It’s why so many of our clients have entered long term relationships by their 5th match! With our strong intuition and positive reputation, we attract quality members who trust our process and are interested in meeting our clients. Our matching methodology helps us find and pair the right match with our client.
Agape Match’s matchmaking and dating expertise has been featured in numerous publications, including the NY Times, Financial Times, Fast Company, CNN, Esquire, Elle, Reuters, Vice, Thrillist, and many others. Agape Match was awarded as Best Matchmaking Agency at the 2016 US Dating Awards and TimeOutNY listed Agape Match as the best matchmaking service in NYC in 2017.
What is the Agape Match Experience?
After you come in for an in person consultation and you become a client, we kick off recruitment! We begin interviewing possible matches and within two weeks, we will begin coordinating your first date with your first introduction! You’ll receive a small bio of your match and a date confirmation. From there, all you have to do is show up and have a great time. The next day, we collect your date feedback and your match’s date feedback. With your date feedback, we will hopefully be setting you up on your second date and/or we’ll determine how to better calibrate your search. Based on your feedback (and your match’s) we’ll recommend date spot locations, events, and books to help you better your experience and hopefully meet your relationship goals.
