We want our clients to consider their matchmakers 'Personal Shoppers for the Heart' and they're fulfilling this role. Just last week, we had six clients call to tell us they are walking down the aisle.
Purchase, NY (PRWEB) August 23, 2008
The traditional art of matchmaking that helped previous generations of couples find their life partners is fast becoming a lucrative business in the year 2008. Great Date Now, a personalized matchmaking company is proof. The discreet service for upscale single professionals that started as an entrepreneurial venture in suburban New York just five years ago is now one of the largest and most successful offline matchmaking companies on the East Coast. The company, which has offices throughout New York, New Jersey and Connecticut, has expanded to Philadelphia and will soon open in Baltimore and Washington DC.
Great Date Now 's matchmaking service is popular among busy, professional singles with careers that consume much of their time, and newly divorced men and women who need help learning how to date again. It is also the preferred dating service for successful single men, who because of high-profile careers, want to keep their dating lives confidential.
Gary Ferone, founder of Great Date Now, launched his privately-owned company after going through the frustrations of online dating and realizing there was a better way to find love. Prior to starting Great Date Now, Ferone was a Wall Street broker, and then became an entrepreneur. Between his search for a second wife and a friend who was in the matchmaking business for 11 years, Ferone decided to start a matchmaking company of his own.
"Our clients look at our service as an investment in their future." states Ferone. "We want our clients to consider their matchmakers 'Personal Shoppers for the Heart' and they're fulfilling this role. Just last week, we had six clients call to tell us they are walking down the aisle."
Unlike online dating services that require a lot of time searching profiles and pictures before ever talking to or meeting someone, Great Date Now matchmakers meet privately with their clients, carefully screen them and conduct background checks to make sure their personal information is accurate. Candidates considered suitable must be professionals with certain education and income levels. Once matchmakers conduct a series of confidential interviews to learn about their clients and what they are seeking in a mate, Great Date Now hand selects potential matches, and if both parties agree to meet, matchmakers arrange the date.
Great Date Now has locations in Mid-town Manhattan, Purchase, Garden City, and Hauppauge, New York, Englewood Cliffs, Morristown and Red Bank, New Jersey, Darien and Milford, Connecticut and Philadelphia. The company is planning another major expansion to Baltimore and Washington DC.
