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

Hi Sophia,

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.

Dear Sophia, I just want to let you know how grateful I am for you to help me this year. I broke up with my boyfriend in February, determined to find the path I wanted to take and had the personal interview with you. That interview helped me so much. In the last month, I met a wonderful man who is a principal of a school. He is 48 years old, a marathon runner. I know I am a bit older than him, but it does not seem to bother him. We have mutual attraction and admiration of each other, truly want to build the relationship of love and kindness. I have never thought I would find someone like him. People say you find someone when you are least looking, and that’s exactly what happened to me. We are already thinking of planning trips for next year. I just want to thank you for all you have done for me this year. I truly believe when you have the right frame of mind, you would attract a person with the same. Happy holidays!

From the moment I began talking with Sophia I felt she had a special understanding about me and what I was looking for. By the end of our first session I believe she knew more about me and my dating issues than I did. She has a very special way of making you comfortable and before you know it you are telling her your wants and needs for a relationship and thinking, “Wow, I didn’t realize that trait in a person is so important to me.” Sophia is very accessible, she quickly returns emails and phone calls, is constantly updating me on where we are in the process, what great man she thinks may be match for me, and setting up dates. Her services also include many fun outside events to attend. The “HIT THE TOWN” event that I attended was great time. Sophia invited a select group people whom she believed might make good matches for each other, 6 men and 6 women. The evening started off with a great intellectual discussion about relationships, dating issues, and advice on dealing with them. I found it to be a great way to gain insight on what the opposite sex was thinking and feeling about the dating process and it become obvious very quickly that we all seem to face the same problems. Sophia worked with everyone in a very conversational manner on what might work best for us to get over these hurtles. After a bite to eat, we all moved into the bar for an opportunity to speak one on one with anyone we wished. It was a wonderful time. I believe that Sophia truly cares about her clients and will search to the end of the earth to locate them their perfect match, and this is why I have put my love life in her capable hands.

My life totally changed in the past month, you have no idea, to the good, to the excellent, and I think your words had some influence in my change, thanks 🙂 I feel so good, I am blessed and happy inside, and it feels great! Hope you had a great Thanksgiving.

~ Male, Los Angeles, CA - November 28, 2009

Sophia, you have given me new inspiration on being single and a new hope! Well you have inspired me a great deal and since I have been reading your posts I believe I myself have made a turn in a better direction! So just another personal thank you for your inspiration! You rock!! I thank you so much!!!

~ Male, Eugene, OR - November 28th, 2009

Sophia, you are a breath of fresh air. How candidly you spoke about your experience and desire to help others is remarkable. You have a power within you that reaches out and lifts others up. To have dedicated your life’s work to helping and teaching people to find love will surely benefit countless lives. I am in awe of you, and the beauty that emanates from you and how you have tackled your own demons and are here to help and teach others… Thank you for your time, energy and for the important information you shared with me. With kind regards…

~ Female, Bellevue, WA - November 27, 2009

I just thought I would take a second to let you know that your personal information activities were the most inspiring I have seen here at FB so far! And I have seen MANY!!! Love and Blessings!!!

~ Female, Orange County, CA - September 30, 2009

What a great service! Sophia really understood what I was looking for in a man and didn’t accuse me of being too fussy (which I thought I was!). On the third attempt, she hit jackpot! John and I have been together for 7 months now and I couldn’t be happier!

~ Female, Seattle, WA - September, 2009

I want to highly recommend Sophia’s agency to my best single friends, because it’s actually something new, refined and exceptionally serious on the matchmakers market. Charming, intelligent and well educated CEO – Ms. McDonald – a delicate psychologist by nature helped them to sense a hope for true love in our practical time.

~ Margo Akopyan - October 10, 2008

Sophia is incredible at listening to what you really are communicating, even if you don’t realize it yourself. If you are serious about wanting a quality matchmaking experience, you should work with her. If it is only an online type experience you want, she is not the one. Sophia’s work with people is personal, in depth and insightful.

Without a doubt Sophia provides the most effective matchmaking service in the area. It’s a waste of time and money to try any other service if you’re truly seeking a serious relationship.
