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.

Sophia’s approach to matchmaking is like no other. She believes that great relationships start with self awareness and she skillfully guides you through that process. Sophia has keen intuition and very insightful. She is teaching you in a very inspiring way to melt away hidden tendencies and behaviors that sabotage your relationships. What makes it pleasant working with Sophia is that she has a talent for teaching growth and transformation in a spirit of self-discovery and not blame, judgment or self-reproach. After every session with Sophia I feel enlightened and empowered. Sophia’s coaching already affected all aspects of my life. I was able to enhance my relationships with friends, parents, coworkers and even my neighbor without even trying. It’s like a magic 😉 I know I’ll never approach my next romantic relationship in a way I did before. I can‘t wait to discover what’s going to happen next.

Sophisticated Matchmaking is OUTSTANDING!!! Sophia is a great host with understanding and compassion for her matchmaking success, bar none!!!

Sophia, brings class, elegance and the right combination of romance… This is the future….

Sophia is a woman with great insight and wisdom about people. Her positive energy is contagious. I tried a well know Internet dating service and quit after a while because it was lacking a personal touch. The first person introduced to me by Sophia turned out to be just “what the dating Doctor ordered.” She’s the best!”

~ Male, 65yo, Bellevue, WA

Sophia’s approach is dead-on and transforms all our soggy paradigms from the past into something that WORKS. She is participating powerfully in my transformation; she’s help me become a noticeably more loving and less ego-driven individual. In the end, Sophia’s approach proves that spiritual evolution of self is the only way to attract the mate you’re looking for, and she makes it easy. She’s taught me in just a few hours how simple shifts in my self-awareness and attitudes can change everything for the better. Sophia’s experiential and philosophical approach does so much more than convert “lemons” into “lemonade”; she coaxes out our inner beauty. In my case, it was inner beauty I had never before appreciated in myself. Set free, that newfound joy and beauty is spreading like wildfire across every aspect of my life. I’ll never again approach a woman in the same way; I’ll never view my role in any love affair through the same flawed filter I was given in early life. She proves it is possible to teach old dogs new tricks! I have never before praised any service to this whole-hearted extent. But Sophia is simply extraordinary to work with. I have no conflict of interest in saying this; I only hope she can spread her take on love far and wide. She brilliantly synthesizes the most salient aspects of popular self-help and religions concepts from every corner of human experience, and the results are powerful. In fact, this service is much more than a matchmaking business. It’s really life-coaching on steroids, with a very pleasant side-effect. If you’re open to her guidance, it will bring much better matches and much better relationship skills into your life. Sophia helps solve the universal struggle of every human … the elimination of lovelessness and loneliness in our lives. Bravo Sophisticated Matchmaking!”

~ Roger, Mercer Island, WA - October 8th, 2008

Thank you for the introduction you set up for me. Your experience and insight into people is very keen. The match you arraigned was a good one. I have had several dates with your client and there is good chemistry with us. We have a lot in common and have enjoyed each others company. I would be happy to recommend your services to anyone that is looking for a special person in their lives.

The group in attendance was open and willing to share views and listen to others.

~ Kelly - Aug 21, 2008

Your questions will be answered. The insight of a professional matchmaker brings to light many topic that you can further explore on your own.

~ Arland - Aug 14, 2008

It’s a different perspective on dating.

~ Brian - Aug 11, 2008

Sophia has a lot of passion for what she does. She is a person that I feel that can improve your life just by being around her and listening to her speak.
