Most frequently asked questions about dating and personal matchmaking!
Currently there are slightly more women than men enrolled. The ratio is now 55% women to 45% men. There’s ample choice in the database for each subscription. If the search is very specific, then we’ll also search outside the database. For 60+, it’s standard practice to advertise in the newspapers.
Practice shows us that the first date usually takes place within 6 weeks. But we search intensively for a year and part of this matchmaking process are honest feedback, coaching, and guidance.
In our work as matchmakers, we have experienced that in order to find your ideal partner, you must be happy with yourself. The better you know yourself, the easier you’ll recognize the person who’s right for you. And we don’t just mean the nice and strong aspects of your personality, but also your obstacles and pitfalls. Because, let’s face it, we all have those, right? This is sometimes easier said than done. We’re matchmakers who’ll look for your match, but professional coaches we’re not, that’s a profession in itself. Since matching is our thing, we have managed to find our perfect match in this field and we are the proud partners of Anouk Boering. Anouk is an experienced coach who specializes in ‘reinventing yourself ‘. Who are you really? Who really fits you well? Which direction would you like your life to take and what needs to be cleaned up because it’s stopping you? Anouk has developed a program that allows the answers to these questions to be found.

Of course the two processes are totally separate and we will only refer you if necessary and after consultation with you.
The difference in rates is related to the effort that we need to make. The 30+ label is numerically bulky and easily accessible. Our focus area is the Randstad. For the 60+ segment, we operate nationwide, the market size is more limited and people are less mobile. We interview people at home and also go on home visits to all serious candidates who respond to the ad. In terms of work intensity and market approach, the 40+ label is situated between the other two labels and needs its own approach, because it usually involves divorces where children are also in the picture.
