a personal introduction agency - or to simplify this discussion - at matchmaker,
is only effective if you specialize and limit the demographic of potential suitors.
for example, if you only want to meet;
fellow professional musicians
fellow blue bloods
fellow self made millionaires
then a matchmaker who specializes in that particular demographic
can not only vet you and potential suitors, but is known in that
particular demographic community, and can attract a large stable
of male and female suitors for matching.
without this limiting focus, you are paying for nothing more than backround
checks being done on people, to make sure they are who they say they are.
after that, personal introduction agencies simply coach like suitors together.
since deception does not seem to be your problem, paying for this won't help.
there are hundreds of online dating web sights.
don't be discouraged that one didn't help you.
most likely your profile, not the sight, is the problem.
you may want to spend money on a professional
to spruce up your profile, and your photographs.
this is no different from someone having their
Curriculum Vitae (resume) professionally rewritten.
another trick is to have a good friend rewrite
your profile. often others see you differently
then you see yourself, and they can compose
a profile that stresses your sweetest qualities,
and drop your distracting clutter.
you might want to have this same good friend
monitor your correspondence. often people can
turn off potential suitors with their writing style.
the above thread is of a women who wrote that
to me on a dating sight after I simply mentioned
I had recently adopted some cats. I didn't meet her.
keep in mind the same stable of singles often
migrate between the same group of date sights,
so you may want to try a sight with a different
slant, or demographic than you did previously.
I've been meeting a lot of great new people on activity sights like;
here you search for activities or interests for your geographic area,
then join like minded people doing what you already like to do best.
what's great about meeting people this way, is their first impression
of you is more balance against them seeing you at what you do best,
or know most about. so people get immediately past superficialities
they might ordinarily get stuck on at a dating web sight or a disco.
meetup's are also easier for women to ask men out, since they can
do it under the guise of wanting to explore more shared interests.
