    Kiss goodbye to bad dates, time-wasters, and online dating horror stories, it's time to find "the one".

    5 Reasons Why Matchmaking Services Beat Online Dating

    In today’s fast-paced world, finding your perfect love match can often seem like an arduous task. While many hopeful singles turn to online dating to explore their options, a growing number of Hong Kongers are recognising one-to-one matchmaking services as a more fruitful way to meet potential partners. We catch up with Carolyn Chan, director of multi award-winning one-on-one dating service, So Klose, to find out why.

    Whether in the online or offline world, dating can be a challenging experience. Many people who have not succeeded in meeting their match the old-fashioned way look to online dating as an option, but find it to be such a trial that they give up early on. Too many mismatches, bad dates, fake or inactive profiles, time-wasters, and horror stories have driven them away from online dating – and perhaps dating altogether. Not to mention the alarming rise in online dating scams in Hong Kong which, last year alone, cheated 62 hopeful singles out of a combined HK$32.4 million.

    It should be reassuring to know, then, that there is another way to meet like-minded individuals with whom to build a meaningful and lasting relationship – in the form of one-to-one matchmaking services – and the benefits are five-fold. But first things first, it’s important to choose a trustworthy service provider which is internationally qualified and certified. Be careful if you find a company with a high complaint rate and a dispute resolution department – this should be a red flag. Once you find the right provider, you can enjoy the benefits of one-to-one matchmaking, which are:

    1. It’s More Secure and Private

    When it comes to dating – whether online or offline – safety should always come first, and matchmaking services make this a number one priority. Unlike online dating apps, where you must stay anonymous until you’ve met in person, and avoid giving out your phone number, address, or other identifying information until you know who you are dealing with, you don’t need to be so cautious when meeting someone through a matchmaking service, because there are no hidden identities. Before dating, you will already have the full background information of your matches, and only relevant and compatible ones will be introduced to you.

    2. It Makes More Intelligent Matching

    Before joining our matchmaking service, each qualified applicant must go through an in-depth interview during which our consultant will verify their identity documents and qualifications. This means that all customers are 100 percent verified before the matchmaking process has even begun. The next step is for the matchmaking service to personally meet every potential match by conducting one-on-one consultations, hand-selecting, and vetting through a strict and thorough entry screening system. The consultant should understand your values, and what you are looking for, and be able to identify suitable and intelligent matches.

    3. It Saves Time … and Disappointment

    When it comes to time, Hong Kongers don’t have much to spare. Between long shifts at work, frequent ad-hoc business meetings, and travel for work, it’s no surprise that navigating the dating world tends to fall to the bottom of our ‘to do list’. That’s where matchmaking services come to the rescue. Unlike online dating, you don’t need to spend hours screening potential candidates because we do the job for you. Plus, before any meet ups with potential prospects, our consultant will provide you with the background and personal information meaning you avoid unsuitable pairings and also dealing with the disappointment after a mismatched date.

    4. It Screens Out the ‘Playboys’ and the ‘Playgirls’

    Many online daters are out to have fun for fun’s sake, so you need to be wary of this. However, the in-depth interview and screening process conducted by the matchmaker enables you to screen out any playboys or playgirl, leaving you with more suitable candidates who are looking for similar things in a romantic partner. Based on our experiences, those who join our services are real and serious singles seeking a serious relationship – and we are able to help them find this.

    5. You Can Be Yourself

    When you feel safe, you feel more relaxed. The benefits this has on your dating life are immeasurable, as you can be yourself and enjoy meeting potential partners. Meeting a date for the first time can be a nerve-racking experience, however, because you will already know the personal details, appearance, and background information of who you are meeting before you go, thanks to the hard work of your matchmaking consultant, you can simply focus on getting to know your date in a secure space, and decide if you would like to see them again. With any luck – you will.

    「現在勤力讀書,第時有份好工實會識到好女仔。」以上對白香港男士在讀書時期都一定聽過,到投身社會回看這句勸勉,不知是感激父母多,還是後悔誤信讒言多呢?根據統計處數據,男性和女性初婚年齡中位數,分別從1991年的29.1歲和26.2歲,上升至去年的31.2歲和29.3歲,反映遲婚甚至不婚情況有上升趨勢,主要原因便是教育水平提升,導致個人工作和成婚時機推遲,香港首間為高學歷及高收入人士提供婚姻介紹服務的公司「緣來這麼近So Klose」創辦人Carolyn就話,遲婚現象在金融行業的專業人士更為普遍,皆因金融工作實在太忙了。

    80full-paid買舊樓 仍被女友家人嫌棄

    【晴報專訊】古時婚嫁說門當戶對,惟現實有人搣不掉此觀念。有80後港男呻儲得第一桶金full paid買了舊樓,卻被女友家人嫌三嫌四。有配對公司指部分全職母親罕見世面,仍以身家揀女婿。社工建議家長抱開放態度,接納子女的另一半。




    行政人員婚配服務公司「緣來這麼近So Klose」總監Carolyn Chan指,部分家長目光短淺,會以對方現月入多少及住哪類樓,衡量是否讓子女交往。「曾有媽媽認為女兒在加拿大留學,非常馨香,即使男友擁有碩士學歷,仍認為他配不上女兒,要求甚麼都好過女兒、一項也不能遜色!」
