Why do I need to use SOPHISTICATED MATCHMAKING?
Did you know that approximately 50% of the people that do Internet dating are married or are in committed relationships? After spending hours on line you will find out that most of the people you meet online often do not turn out to be as they portrayed themselves – they post photos of themselves taken 20 years ago or often not even their own pictures, etc. While dating online, you will have to take risks on yourself and to verify if the information presented online is accurate or take chances to meet total strangers. Most people prefer to know that the stranger they’re going out with has already been through a background check for arrests or criminal activity. Research shows that less than 1% of online singles ever make a love connection. Online dating can be very time-consuming. Our service is stress-free, financially beneficial and efficient.
Sophia has access to a national database so she does all work for you. So all you have to do is trust her, follow her advice, and have fun. She introduces you to only carefully selected, commitment orientated and like-minded matches with social, economic, cultural backgrounds and goals similar to yours. She is applying a unique and custom-tailored approach to identify, filter and qualify potential matches. Her services are absolutely confidential, discreet and discerning. She addresses personal safety and conducts background checks and in-depth pre-screening interviews on all clients, and the introductions they receive, to verify accuracy of information provided. All clients and their possible matches are interviewed by the same person to exclude a ‘broken link’ in the communication, so their needs and wishes are understood and satisfied. Her work style provides her clients a comfortable, non-intimidating, and non-competitive atmosphere. All of her introductions are made prior by mutual approval and all matches answer the client’s personal criteria and preferences.
How different is SOPHISTICATED MATCHMAKING from Video dating?
If you don’t have much to do and have a lot of free time – video dating services might be right for you. You will do all of the searching though on your own. You will be offered a database of profiles to go through with photographs and the written description of potential matches on the back. Most of the time people make their initial search based on the picture, and then they can watch a 2-10 minutes videos of the “matches’ they chose. This approach is highly superficial. People waste hours of their time and they find themselves single and lonely at the end. We individually handpick, interview and screen matches for our clients. We know exactly what our clients looking for and deliver it to them.
How different are your services from a blind date set up by friends?
The matches we choose for you are carefully screened and selected to match with your desires and expectations, as opposite to introductions through friends when all they have in mind is that you are both single and are looking to meet someone.
We also help you to make the right choice. The problem is that everyone has a pattern they use in the relationships. What we call chemistry is actually sitting deep in unconscious and is hard wired. It determines your relationships choices for the rest of your life. Because of it, you crave specific types of people and situations whether they are good for you or not. You will continue to do this unless you do something to change your hard wiring. You cannot change your wiring by reading a book. If you could you would have exactly the kind of relationships you want by now. Only method that imprint the original primal level and interrupt your original wiring can change your relationship patterns and finally help you to find what you deserve and desire for yourself.
How different are your services from other matchmaking services?

Why do I need to pay to meet someone?
We live in a service-oriented world. We hire a Real Estate Broker to buy a home… a Travel Agent to book a trip… an Employment Agency to find a new job… an Attorney to protect and represent our interest… a Financial Advisor to make smart investments for us, and… a CPA to prepare our taxes.
Finding love is one of the most important decisions you make in your lifetime. Buying the wrong house can be easily fixed. You just sell it. However, it’s not easy to put yourself back on the market and search for a new love.
Break-ups and divorces not only affect our emotional happiness but make a deep impact on our social and business life as well. So, why let the most important decisions of your life be left to pure chance? Do it right! Hire Sophia McDonald at Sophisticated Matchmaking to help you effortlessly make the right choice and find the partner you desire and deserve.
I'm incredibly busy and barely have time for myself.
Finding lasting love connection is sensitive and time consuming. You may feel you do not need to use such services. Or believe you actually have a chance to meet that special person on your own. We are not saying you cannot – just that chances are very small. The higher your standards – the lower your chances. Most attractive and successful people have no problem meeting other people. On the contrary, they attract too many people – making it more difficult to recognize the SPECIAL one.
How do you meet new people in your life? Through friends?… At parties?… In a bar?… At your sports club?… On a blind date?… or possibly on-line? All of these approaches can be entertaining for a while, but in a long run, they are all a waste of time. With our fast-paced lifestyles and living in an era of high technology and booming internet services, more people are finding traditional matchmakers to be an easier and more convenient way to find the love of their life.
Do you take every person who contacts you as a client?
- If we believe we are unable to find the perfect match for a potential client or believe their expectations are unrealistic – we will not accept them as a client. Our services are very popular and a lot of people are interested in becoming our clients. We make sure that when we take on clients, we are able to provide them with the type of people that they are interested in meeting.
- We do not discriminate based on age, ancestry, color, disability, national origin, race, religion, sex or sexual orientation.
- We do not work with legally married people.
Where do you find the people who I go on my dates with?
- We invest time and money in our exclusive search.
- We search for high-caliber women and men in places where this particular type of person usually frequents.
- We are involved with organizations and events in Washington that appeal to a more sophisticated crowd.
- We attend the latest cultural events, golf tournaments, galas, openings, upscale clubs, and restaurants.
- We also search for exquisite women and high caliber men through our personal network of connections, publications in media and the web, advertising campaigns in sport and social clubs, spas, private parties, the most prestigious and exclusive fundraising events.
- We constantly employ the use of our network connections with multiple businesses and social organizations and groups. We include newly qualified prospects to our exclusive database daily.
- We will only introduce you to carefully selected and high-caliber matches who meet your personal requirements and taste.
Do you work with people who live/or work outside of the Seattle Greater Area?
We DO work with people who DO NOT live in the Seattle Greater Area, but most of them are bi-city, they travel back and forth between their city and the Seattle Greater Area so we can provide them dates when they come into town. Unfortunately, if you do not have a direct contact to the Seattle Greater Area, it is very difficult for us to work with you.
How do you match people?
Our commitment to finding your perfect match is based on lifestyle, life goals, personal values and psychological compatibility. We DO NOT find matches based on common interests and hobbies.
We believe the relationship is all about how two romantic partners act in life’s prickly situations. It’s their ability to create a good “fit”, even when their connection doesn’t seem seamless, smooth and natural. We encourage our clients to focus less on physical criteria and common interests and more on a potential romantic partner’s “relationship skills” or “emotional intelligence.”
You probably asked yourself many times why you choose the same type of the partner over and over again, why partners change so much after having sex, why are you attracting to the opposites, will the relationships get better or worse after the marriage, why chemistry doesn’t always mean love? Some people feel they can no longer trust their intuition or their own judgment regarding choice of a romantic partner.
We will help you to find answers to all this questions, to understand yourself and to analyze your needs and desires. We carefully evaluate your family background and history of your past relationships to recognize your past patterns of behavior. We assess you core personality characteristics and discuss you values and goals to clarify your important emotional and interpersonal needs and desires in order to find you a person who will be your true match. We learn about your physical appeal and other private personal preferences to define what will be that unique receipt for chemistry that leads to strong lasting relationship.
Do I have to contact my match myself to coordinate our date?
Each candidate, we introduce you to, is carefully screened and interviewed. You choose whom you want to meet based on recommended guidance and suggestions. The entire process is discreet, safe, dignified, comfortable, and most of all, results oriented. Each introduction is made based on mutual approval. Once you have approved one another, you will exchange contact information with each other. We will coordinate your first date to ensure both parties are comfortable. We will be with you throughout each step of the matchmaking process to ensure that you are making the best use of your time, energy and efforts.

After you have been chosen, we will contact you to see if you are interested in being introduced to one or some of our clients. If there is an interest on your behalf, we will schedule a one-on-one private interview to get to know you better and determine if you will be a good potential match for each other.

Once you have been approved, you will be added to our off-line database. So when our clients are reviewing profiles and by some reason skip your picture without knowing that you might be a perfect match for them, we will make a special introduction and point their attention in your direction.

Joining our off-line database is a great option if you want to keep your information totally confidential. It can only be reviewed by the matchmaker and partially viewed by our clients. REQUEST your private and confidential consultation now.
I am attractive, successful, outgoing and hot – Matchmaking services are for losers! Besides, the kind of people I am looking for would never join service like this!
Well, you will be surprised by the quality of people who are seeking professional help to reach their personal goals.
Our clients are attractive, successful and well-educated individuals, who have a lot to offer. The higher the standards are and the more they have to offer, the more difficult is to find an equally high-caliber match. Our clients do not have any problem meeting other people – instead they are very sought-after and desired which makes it harder for them to make the right choice and to find time to explore all the opportunities life has to offer.
Our services attract varied professionals: CEO’s of major corporations, business owners, executives, entrepreneurs, physicians, attorneys, doctors, models, professionals in the financial industry, higher education, pharmaceuticals, technology and government.
