Matchmaking Client Testimonial
FEEDBACK QUESTIONNAIRE: What was your experience of the initial interview?
– Extremely helpful! Sophia asked many in-depth questions that gave me the confidence she was really interested to know and understand me. The 40 pages intake questionnaire also prompted me to think about what is really important to me.
Did it shift your perception of your dating situation and how?
– Yes, it confirmed that I don’t need to settle for someone who doesn’t match with my values and interests. It changed my perception of online dating- that more dates and introductions aren’t necessarily “better”, or a good use of my time.
In which way was the coaching method different from other coaching programs/therapy you took earlier?
– Sophia’s approach is very different than what I expected. She helped me understand the “Field Theory” and helped me understand how to approach new relationships with confidence, and not from “need”.
How fast were you able to see the results?
– I purposely chose to wait until after our coaching before dating again, but Sophia quickly changed my attitudes about dating and also about past relationships, seeing more clearly why they weren’t successful.
How would you describe Sophia’s coaching style working with clients?
– Sophia is very kind and caring, and also direct. She calls things out, which I appreciate, and we talk through real-life situations, applying the principals I am learning. I trust that I can share anything with Sophia, including insecurities I might have. She is supportive, nonjudgmental, and encouraging. She suggested a large number of books to read between sessions. We were then ready to discuss and make the most of our time.
What was your experience with image makeover process?
Was Sophia able to match your style with your personality to deliver a better message of who and what you are?
– Absolutely! She first suggested some stores to me, and I went to stylists at those stores by myself. I wasn’t totally comfortable with what the stylists chose, but purchased the clothes anyway. After showing them to Sophia it was clear to me the value of having her shop in person with me. I returned the other clothes and Sophia chose styles that were spot-on for me. Afterward, the women I have dated have complimented me on every ensemble Sophia chose for me, even the cologne she suggested at our last stop.
What was your shopping experience like?
– Fun! With Sophia advising the store’s stylist, the two women were able to quickly find me a great combination of shoes, slacks, shirts, suits, and jackets that will cover a wide variety of dating situations, without breaking my budget. Sophia spent hours with me, carefully choosing each piece of clothing and each accessory.
What was your photo-shoot like?
– Were atmosphere and location making you relaxed and comfortable? Yes! Originally I was self-conscious about a photo-shoot in public, but Sophia and the photographer made me feel at ease and comfortable. Sophia was very particular about the poses and backgrounds she felt would reflect best on me. I appreciated her meticulous attention to those details.
Did your images turn out as you expected?
– Yes. Sophia and the photographer said there were more good images than normal that they wanted me to choose from. Sophia also helped me choose the photos that best conveyed energy and my personality so that women she matches me with will get a good sense of who I am from my photos.
Was Sophia present and personally involved personally in your image makeover, shopping, and photo-shoot?
– Yes! Sophia made the time to spend an entire afternoon and evening shopping with me, and another afternoon and evening at the photo-shoot. In addition, she encouraged me to bring clothes I purchased without her to her home to try on. She has exceptional taste and brought a perspective to the makeover, shopping, and photo-shoot that I found extremely valuable and beneficial.
What was your matchmaking experience?
Did Sophia have enough matches fitting your criteria?
– Sophia showed me a large number of women in her database who appeared to spark my interest. She also was quick to point out women who she felt would not be a good match for me, even though I was attracted to their photos and their profiles.
Did potential matches recommendation by Sophia match the reality?
– Yes! In fact, the first match she made for me is the only one I’ve had because she seems to be a perfect fit for me. My date and I hit it off from the first phone call and we’re exclusive with each other. She and I are both amazed at how perfect we seem to be for each other. We celebrated Thanksgiving together and sent a photo to Sophia telling her how thankful we are for her bringing us together.
How long did it take for you to meet the right match?
– When I first interviewed with Sophia she showed me her #1 choice for me, after we spent three hours together and she got to know me. Four months later, when I was ready to be matched, Sophia showed me the same woman’s profile again, still believing she was the #1 choice for me. We met, have dated for two months, and are now exclusive. Sophia has offered to match me with other women but I haven’t seen the need. My match and I are very happy together and continue to be amazed at how Sophia knew we would be so right for each other.
Was Sophia available to provide you with dating support and advice on a daily basis as needed?
– Absolutely! Though I haven’t needed it after the first couple of dates, given how well things are going.
I highly recommend Sophia for all the services she provides. When I paid her for one year of matchmaking I expected to date numerous women until I found one to be exclusive with. I was skeptical when Sophia told me that my first match might be the only one I need – but so far she is right. Even if it turns out that I paid all the money to Sophia for just one match, it will be worth it. To borrow from the Master Card catch-phrase, finding true love is “priceless”.

Coaching Client Testimonial
Thanks for the dating and relationship coaching, I have made significant progress since reading your posts, messaging you, and practicing.
What has been most helpful is regaining the power that I had. I was just going along with some of the things that the woman said. I was trying to be polite, but I need to stand up for what is right. They respect that and it creates more attraction.
You talked about the example of communication and the level of sophistication of master daters. I bumped up a couple of levels of sophistication, fine tuning, and I’m getting much better results. There are more women and they are more attractive in more ways.
I’m getting more matches on Tinder and OK Cupid. I’m much more confident since working with you. Starting to get my swagger back. Need to keep building it. I’m working on more of what the women are interested in and getting them to be attracted to me.
At the grocery, I never meet women and I had a scientist woman and another woman leaning in and their eyes were sparkling towards me after I was flirting with them.
Thanks for your coaching. It’s made a big difference in improving the quality and quantity of my dating. I’ll keep working towards the one woman life-long loving relationship. Keep my eyes open, but also let it happen.

WHAT CLIENTS AND MEMBERS SAY ABOUT US
When I first came to Sophia, I was tired of dating, discouraged and all together ready to give up on this endeavor. The overwhelming amount of first dates will get you there in no time! The first meeting I had with Sophia was wonderful, we chatted about life and relationships as if two old friends were catching up on life. I felt extremely comfortable, relaxed and understood. She was not just asking me questions about my dating life, Sophia really wanted to get to know me on a deeper emotional level and now I understand how truly crucial that was. After the initial session, Sophia started her magic matchmaking process and Vuala! We had multiple gentlemen who met my “dating criteria”, all of them were great sophisticated bachelors, truly wonderful men but I felt no spark….Then, one day Sophia called me, I will never forget how excited and enthusiastic she sounded on the phone, she said : ” I want you to meet this man, he might be the one for you!!” I do not know how to really describe my first date other than I did not want it to ever end! When you meet someone special, you have that strong deep connection almost immediately and when it is right, things flow naturally from that point on. We both feel very lucky to have found each other..It feels like a fairytale and a bit like a miracle!!! Sophia, words can not express both of our gratitudes and appreciation for this introduction!!! You matchmaking talent is the greatest gift and a blessing for all the Seattle singles!!! Thank you!!!
I highly recommend Sophia as a life and love coach. After even listening to her the first time, truly listening with an open heart, I already realized my expectations would be exceeded, that she has so much healing and helpfulness to offer anyone. What I found to be essential is her keen skill of “seeing through you” and understanding you without judgment, without ego – yet with compassion and rational constructive input. She is genuine, giving, intuitive, authentic, warm, humorous, fully present, wise, and positive yet realistic, to name a few. She “walks the talk” herself, sharing her personal experiences to help you relate and grow, and you find that she is a beautiful human being herself. Wearing “Sophia’s glasses” brought me immensely more understanding of myself and others – more enlightenment – and proactive steps in a positive direction. Beyond a doubt, Sophia invites you to truly realize yourself so that you can become your best in life and love. Angelina F. 36.

Sophia, I just thought I’d update you with status since our consultation. I’ve read through a majority of suggested reading you gave me. What I found most helpful was your example of a picky guy who describes a girl he’s looking for that would never be attracted to him, and then Wayne Dyer’s statement of, “be that which you want to attract.” Most of the rest of the reading can be summed up by, ‘positive people attract positive results.’ All that information helped give me a new perspective that makes sense, and in application has generated some good results. It has apparently changed the energy I’m giving off as more people I’ve never met have been initiating random conversations with me, and women have actually been approaching me and asking to dance when I go to social Salsa dances. One result in particular I’m excited about is a date for tomorrow evening, the woman is someone I met at a party on Saturday. Tomorrow is also my styling session with Darcy; she did a closet audit yesterday and it’s definitely in need of some updating. That should work out perfectly, giving me something nice to wear for that evening. Regardless of what happens with this woman tomorrow I still plan to have photos taken with Jennifer next Monday as those will just be nice to have anyway. Once I have those I’ll send you some to add to my profile. Just thought I’d say thank you, and that I found the consultation very beneficial and useful.
I’ve never found it hard to date, but impossible to find a woman I would want to spend the rest of my life with. I was beginning to think I never would find such a person, and some of my friends thought that I was being too selective. When a friend of mine suggested Sophia as a matchmaker, I first thought “No way. I don’t need that!” but then I thought “How could it hurt?” After our first meeting, Sophia had someone in mind for me, who turned out to be unavailable. She then introduced me to a couple other women who were very nice, but not the one for me. Then, after some time, the woman she first thought would be perfect for me became available, we met, and yes, Sophia was right. I am completely taken by this woman; we are a perfect fit for one another. Sophia has the power of great intuition and the true desire to help people find romance. I will always be thankful to her for seeing who would be right for me and introducing me to such a wonderful woman.
So far 2 dates with 2 very fabulous women. Both are open to second dates so trying to line that up to get to know them better. If someone told me you have to make a choice now, I would go with Alex. But too soon to tell. I went on about 9 dates with another dating service and everyone was a painful experience as we had nothing in common. So 2 for 2 out of the gate—I’m really happy I decided to enlist your help. Thanks Sophia.
Sophia… I voted but you truly dont need my vote. 🙂 You are great at what you do. Even though you never got round to matching me, I took your advice and have been in an amazing relationship since then. I spoke with you for barely 5 minutes yet you offered very profound statements that have stayed with me to this day and I have shared those words over and over.
Dear Sophia, I met my soul mate….we met and married in 3 months, both of us thinking we would never ever be married again. When you know, you know. Best wishes to you.
I hired Sophia as my matchmaker and quickly realized she has a unique gift when it came to identifying who could be my ideal match. I have met a wonderful man through her that I would not have met through my own avenues and he fits all the major aspects of what I have been searching for, including great chemistry! In addition I used Sophia’s relationship coaching services when I first met her, which truly helped me build my self confidence in the dating world, as well as to be more open minded about the process. I am not only impressed with Sophia’s work but incredibly grateful to her!
