Traditional matchmaking service offers outside perspective and saves singles time, money

For Immediate Release


SEATTLE—January 29, 2015— In the age of immediate virtual acceptance or dismissal, one entrepreneur is taking it back to basics with Simply Matchmaking, an offline, traditional matchmaking service based in Seattle, Wash. Chief Matchmaker Ali Walpert conducts detailed consultations with each candidate, then refers to her pool of men and women to begin the search for his or her soul mate.

Many people enter the New Year aware of the looming Valentine’s Day deadline to get a date. Online services such as Tinder, or OKCupid can be time consuming, expensive and exhausting, whether you correspond back and forth or meet in person for dates.

“Using a matchmaking service can actually save you time and money,” said Ali Walpert, founder of Simply Matchmaking, who’s been setting couples up since 2004. “Instead of paying hefty monthly membership fees for online dating sites and spending hundreds of dollars on dates, consider this: someone could contact a matchmaker after the first of the year, meet for a consultation, and be set up with a compatible person two weeks later. They could already be dating for a month or more by Valentine’s Day!”

A common misperception is that people who use a matchmaking service aren’t capable of finding a date on their own and need drastic relationship help (or an intervention!). After a thorough consultation, Simply Matchmaking is essentially just another avenue of meeting people; a third party that can “cut the fluff” and help find vetted matches quicker.

“Left to his or her own devices, individuals can get stuck in a rut dating the same kinds of people,” said Walpert. “A matchmaker can find someone who’s both attractive and deeply compatible with another, even if it’s outside the normal ‘type’ he or she has identified for themselves.”
