A Choice of Personal Matchmaking Membership Options

Our membership options offer 5 distinctly different levels of membership that cover most sets of circumstances and budgets. The choice is yours, but whatever level of membership you choose to join us on, you will be meeting people usually from a professional background, all of whom will have been personally interviewed, either in their own homes, or through a video call, ensuring we are not only offering an excellent service, but one that is also affordable for most people.

If Online Dating Isn’t for You…

Most people who speak to us about joining have tried online dating apps and know it’s not for them, so if you worry about meeting strangers and having your confidential details on a highly public dating domain, or you’ve read about the horror stories, then we are waiting to provide a quality alternative, whenever the time is right for you. We believe that Searchmate offers a much safer form of dating by providing more confidentiality, attracting professional people, and therefore resulting in better quality matches.

Hand-Picked Elite Introductions

All Searchmate clients are very carefully assessed to make sure they are 100% genuine. We personally interview every client, verify their ID and use one of the most comprehensive authentication systems globally, to ensure we have one of the cleanest databases in dating and that all of your matches are introductions of the highest quality.

The Searchmate dating service is very personal and highly confidential. Throughout the term of your membership you will work closely with a carefully chosen member of our matchmaking team, who will get to know you as thoroughly as possible, and even more importantly, the type of partner that you are really hoping to meet.

Only you and our matchmaking team get access to your profile and photographs. It will remain highly confidential and very private, and only ever be seen by carefully assessed clients who we will have identified as a potential high-quality match for you.

As an option on some membership levels, the level of privacy is higher still and nobody would ever get to see your profile without you accepting them as a potential match first.

Finding Your Perfect Partner, the Searchmate Way

At various points in our lives, invariably, we all need to find love and a perfect partner if we can, but we also know that is not always easy or straightforward. Meeting the right person can be terribly hard if you set yourself exacting standards and don’t want to compromise on them. After all, this is probably the most important decision that you will ever have to make.

However, through Searchmate, help is at hand. Finding that perfect partner the Searchmate way means that you will always have a friendly face to talk things through with and an expert to guide you through the jungle that dating can sometimes be. Our executive matchmakers are always available to advise you.

Over the last 2 decades or so, meeting new partners online has been very popular. Recently, however, the online dating industry has been attracting the wrong type of publicity. Many people now realise that it is not for them and have been looking for a safer and more credible alternative, and that is exactly what Searchmate offers – high-quality, personal introductions, tailored to you, through our carefully trained and experienced team of personal matchmakers and dating experts.

Unique Photography Service

We know that good-quality photographs can make a world of difference when you’re hunting for your soulmate. So, for those of you who choose to visit our office for your interview, not only will you meet your personal matchmaker face-to-face, but we have our own photography service too, and would be happy to include a free mini photoshoot as part of your membership package. Just let us know what you’d prefer.
