Through A Friend Matchmakers

We believe in love, we believe in you.


Yes, we do charge both men and women. However, we offer free memberships and paid services. As long as one party pays for our matchmaking services, we can facilitate the process.

Yes, we do. We prioritize our clients’ safety and security, which is why we conduct thorough background checks on potential matches.

We primarily gain clients through referrals, social media platforms, and events. Our extensive network and online presence help us connect with individuals seeking our services.

We have a vast network of local and global professional matchmakers who assist us. We also have recruiters stationed at locations where potential dates for our clients might frequent. Additionally, we reach out to friends of friends on social media platforms to identify potential matches.

Our clients are charming, attractive, and successful professionals who have no trouble getting dates but are looking for long-lasting love and meaningful connections.

We base our matches on personal values and basic search criteria such as appearance, height, career, religion, and location. Compatibility is our key focus when creating matches.

Absolutely not! Our service stands in stark contrast to platforms like and other online dating sites.

Our Approach:

  • Customization: We take pride in offering a completely customized and personalized experience for every client. There are no generic profiles or algorithms at play here.

  • Extensive Effort: Unlike online dating sites, where you might spend minutes scrolling through profiles, we invest a substantial amount of time – 5 to 6 hours meticulously searching for each date for our clients. Our focus is on ensuring compatibility and delivering high-quality matches that align with individual preferences.

  • Verification: We go the extra mile to verify critical details. This includes confirming our client’s true age, validating the authenticity of their current photos, ensuring accuracy in height, and even assessing some aspects of their financial status. These measures help us create a foundation of trust and reliability in our matchmaking process.

At our core, we are committed to providing a unique and unparalleled matchmaking service, where genuine connections and lasting relationships are our ultimate goals. Our dedication to personalized, verified, and tailored matchmaking sets us apart from the world of online dating.

We offer four different packages, and the cost depends on each client’s unique situation. After an initial consultation and understanding their needs, we suggest the right package for them.

We typically work with 10-20 clients at a time to provide personalized attention and effective matchmaking.

While it’s challenging to quantify, we have successfully matched couples who have been together for over a decade prior to forming the company, and we continue to create meaningful relationships for our clients.

No, we are not like the Millionaire Matchmaker, but many of our clients are millionaires. Our service is designed to cater to a wide range of successful professionals seeking love.

Yes, both of us, Shermona and Cyndy, are happily married. Shermona has been married for over 20 years, and Cyndy has been married for over 15 years.
