Frequently Asked Questions

How long has The Modern Matchmaker been in business?

For over 25 years.

What’s the difference between your service and online dating?

We offer a personalized matchmaking process for clients to meet compatible partners that share their interests, values and lifestyles. We screen everyone first, in person, select potential partners, and save clients valuable time and energy.

What is your success rate?

Our success rate is 85%, and that’s defined as clients in exclusive relationships or married as a result of our efforts.

Who are your clients?

All of our clients are professionals looking for customized compatible introductions that lead to a committed relationship or marriage.

Do you have more male or female clients?

We have a good mix of both, but it can vary slightly during different times of the year.

What age group does The Modern Matchmaker serve?

Although we serve all ages, most of our clients are between 35 and 75 years old.

What geographic area do you serve?

We primarily serve the Greater Pittsburgh and surrounding area. We are also networked nationally and help match some clients that have a second home in another state or travel to certain areas for business on a regular basis.

What is the process?

Clients schedule a meeting with one of our expert matchmakers to review their confidential profile and discuss their “perfect match” requirements. We then complete a customized profile for each client and recommend compatible matches. When both parties agree to meet, we make the introduction. We strongly encourage client feedback after each first date until clients declare an exclusive relationship.  

How long is your contract period?

Our yearly contracts have a match guarantee as it is important to us that our client’s investments are protected.

What are your different levels of services?

We have three membership levels at different prices that are customized to each client that can be discussed when we meet or via phone prior to meeting.

Is your matchmaking process confidential?

Absolutely. That's one of the main reasons our clients choose The Modern Matchmaker. They are selective and value their confidentiality. We do background checks and we know our clients far better than their profiles.

Do clients from other dating services come to you?

This happens frequently, as our business model is quite different from other services. The Modern Matchmaker is a boutique matchmaking service for professional singles. Our clients are selective and value their confidentiality.

When and why did Susan, Founder and Professional Matchmaker first get into matchmaking?

As a younger woman, Susan had a difficult time meeting single, professional, compatible men that were her equal. Our clients are busy professionals who either do not have time to meet the right people or attract the wrong people like a magnet. 

Getting started is easy.
