When you do your research on dating agency, the term dating consultant or matchmaker always pops up. What is it actually and what's the role of a dating consultant?
Well, in this post, you will have these answered once and for all! We're talking about the dating consultants aka matchmakers here in Lunch Actually.
What does a dating consultant do?
As a dating consultant, they work closely with singles to learn more about their preferences. They meet every potential client for a face-to-face consultation; each session can take 45 minutes to 1 hour, or even longer sometimes! They will really take the time to get to know each single better in order to assist them and provide them with the right service.
What kind of profile, physical and personality preferences does the consultant find out from each client? This includes age, education level, religion, ethnicity, smoking and drinking habits, heights and build.
Personality preferences would include characteristics such as introverted vs extroverted, spontaneous vs organised etc. This session is very important because here is where a dating consultant assesses the client. Their assessment is very important because sometimes how clients perceive themselves may be different than how others perceive them.
Dating Consultants also take the time to find out about clients’ past relationships, passions, values and what is most important to them. So there you have it; by using the plethora of information they have discovered from each single, they handpick each and every match that is most compatible for the client.
Who can be a dating consultant?
The most important criteria to become a dating consultant or matchmaker is someone who's ambitious, kind-hearted, driven and passionate about our company. They are the people who really have that desire to really make a difference in singles' lives.
