Matchmaking Agency vs. Online Dating
Before there was online personals and social networking, there were store front based matchmaking agencies. These local dating agencies are where singles go to be matched up with potential dates and mates. But now, given that internet dating services and online social networking websites are thriving, are professional match making agencies going the way of the dinosaurs?
Do not be too quick to think that they are. In fact, because of the presence of web personals sites, these brick and mortar dating agencies are also growing in the last decade. Many experts on the field theorize that it is because online dating have made alternative dating routes such as seeking the local services of professional matchmaking services more acceptable.
Also, there are a few advantages that professional dating agencies have over dating websites. Among them is the fact that security is guaranteed with these agencies. Because these dating agencies screen their clients thoroughly and face-to-face, you can be sure that the singles you meet matches up with the profile that you've read over.
Another advantage that professional matchmaker services have over internet personals websites is that their services are more personalized. With a dating agency, you do not have to rely on just some test to get your matches done for you. Because they will most likely have an office in your area, you actually go there to be interview and the information you shared will be used to match you up with other compatible singles.
The biggest advantage that professional dating services have over online dating websites is the advantage of time. If you go with a dating agency, there will most likely be someone there to help go through hundreds of profiles just to find the most compatible matches for you.
Of course, the drawback is these types of personalized services come with a steep price. On average, internet based dating services can run between $30-$80 per month, most brick and mortar dating agencies require a contract that usually starts around $1000 or so. It has been said that love is blind, but by way of a local dating agency, it's also very pricy.
