Myth1 Match­mak­ing is only for the “des­per­ate”

Think match­mak­ing is only for peo­ple who can’t get dates on their own? Not at all. Many el­i­gi­ble (and at­trac­tive!) sin­gles just don’t have the time to browse pro­files on­line and make small talk. Think of en­gag­ing a match­maker as mak­ing an in­vest­ment in your love life.

Myth2 The peo­ple you meet on match­made dates are shady

It turns out they might ac­tu­ally be more trust­wor­thy than some­one you meet off the In­ter­net. All ac­cred­ited dat­ing agen­cies con­duct back­ground checks on their clients, so you can take com­fort in the fact that your po­ten­tial matches are cred­i­ble... and aren’t mar­ried!

Myth3 Match­mak­ing events are bor­ing

A match­mak­ing event doesn’t just in­volve din­ner. Th­ese days, dat­ing agen­cies hold widerang­ing events so sin­gles get to in­ter­act in a range of dif­fer­ent sit­u­a­tions. Lo­cal dat­ing agency GaiGai’s dat­ing events in­clude brew­ery tours, bak­ing les­sons and paint­ing work­shops.

Myth4 The match­mak­ing process is lonely

You’re far from alone in your jour­ney to find­ing the right part­ner when you en­gage a dat­ing agency. Your match­maker is es­sen­tially your best girl­friend and more – apart from be­ing a lis­ten­ing ear on how a date went, she’s also the one you turn to when things aren’t go­ing smoothly. Ba­si­cally, you’ll have your own per­sonal cheer­leader.
