Frequently Asked Questions

What types of people hire a private matchmaker? Our Elite clients are successful, busy professionals who are selective and relationship-minded. They hire us to maximize their personal life. Working with an Elite Matchmaker allows these clients to spend their time with family and friends as well as enjoying the activities they love while we search for the special person they deserve, who shares their interests and enhances their lifestyle. These clients expect the highest level of service and find hiring a private matchmaker is the best way to achieve their personal goals.

What is the difference between private matchmaking and a dating service? Dating Services can be very effective, but hiring a private matchmaker takes that to the next level. While other services may be limited to the singles in their membership base, at Elite Private Search this is not the case. We have a team of recruiters who are constantly on the lookout for high-quality singles who are then interviewed thoroughly by our Elite Matchmakers before a match is made. Essentially, Elite Clients have an entire team of people searching for their ideal match.

I am a current or past client of EPS and want to refer a friend to you. What should I do? Simply reach out to your Elite Matchmaker, they will walk your friend through the process and answer any questions they may have.

I am a current or past client in the standard program (IJL) and want to become a Private Search client. What should I do? Reach out to your IJL Matchmaker, they will explain the differences between these two valuable programs and talk about your options!

I am on the waitlist to become a client. What should I do in the meantime? As we are limited in the number of clients we take on at any given time, this is often the case. We recommend dating through IJL in the meantime as we can easily switch you over to an Elite membership when a spot opens up.
