Frequently asked questions

Our discerning clients often ask questions about joining our matchmaking agency. 

Here are some frequent questions and answers to help you make the decision to join our matchmaking agency and find a happy and lasting relationship ….

People like you. We attract intelligent, articulate, attractive and financially sound professionals who lead busy, happy and fulfilling lives. They join Mutual Attraction to meet like-minded people in a discreet, professional and time-efficient way.  Our proactive, successful and well educated clients are looking to meet someone of the same calibre and mindset for a lasting relationship.

Half the London population between the ages of 20 and 59 are single.  If you’re reading this, then chances are that you are one of them. London is as diverse as the occupants that make up this great city.  There is so much going on, so many people coming and going and it can feel like you’re searching for a needle in a haystack.  A matchmaking agency can take the chance out of finding that needle.

Matchmakers are experts at bringing people together. In the same way proactive people use recruitment consultants to get their dream job or an estate agent to find their perfect house, a matchmaker will find your ideal partner. A partner who shares your vision for the future, enjoys a similar lifestyle and interests and who, like you, is ready to meet not just anyone, but ‘The One’.

Our matchmakers undertake training with the Matchmaker Academy.  The Academy is a training school for matchmakers and was founded by Caroline in 2015.  Since then, she has trained many new national and international matchmakers (including a lot of fellow London matchmakers!).

Most commonly from personal recommendations.  They also hear about us via local and national press coverage, targeted advertising, networking and social and business events.  In recent times, we have featured in The Times, The Telegraph, The Independent and The Express amongst others.  To check us out in recent media , please visit Mutual Attraction in the Media

We value your privacy and we therefore ask all clients to sign a confidentiality statement.  We are registered with Data Protection to store personal information in a secure system and we never share your information with third parties.  You will be sent a copy of your personal profile before it is sent to any potential matches so you feel comfortable with the information that is being shared with potential dates.

Glad you asked because we like talking about it!

Mutual Attraction is the proud winner of the 2014 iDate Best Matchmaker Award.  The iDate Awards, likened to the Oscars of the dating industry, represent the very best of the dating world.  We were nominated and voted for by our clients.  Not only were we voted Best Matchmaking Service but we are the first UK based dating agency to win the award and are proudly flying the flag for matchmaking here in the UK!

In October 2014, we were also delighted to win the 'Matchmaker of the Year' award at the UK Dating Awards. For the 2015, 2017 and 2018 Awards our founding matchmaker Caroline, was invited to be the Head Judge both at the UK Awards and at the European and US Awards.

We do have photographs on our profiles but we only share a profile with a photo on if and when we have your consent.   

We work in partnership with dating photographers Juliet Lemon and Jean-Luc Benazet to ensure that your profile photos show you at your best. 

We love to chat so pop on over to the Contact Us page and we will be happy to discuss the service with you further and answer any questions you have.

We are the only UK and London based dating agency to ever be awarded the prestigious iDate ‘Best Matchmaker’ award.

The hard sell and dating agencies have gone hand in hand for many years but not with us.  We will never ask you to sign up to anything when you meet us for an initial consultation and we offer a 14 day cooling off period when joining so if your circumstances change,  you can cancel your membership 14 days after joining and you will receive a full refund, no questions asked.

Finally, the membership fee you see, is what you pay. No hidden fees, no retainers and no monthly extras.

We are not an online dating website which means we do not have member’s profiles online, a search facility nor are clients able to contact one another directly until both parties have agreed they would like to be introduced.  We offer a personal and bespoke service; we take care of all aspects from creating your personal profile, coordinating matches and following up after your introduction.

We certainly do take into account religious preferences when matching UK clients.  We also offer specialised religious matchmaking for our Middle Eastern and Asian clients.  

Please do call us for a chat about what you are searching for in a partner and we will always be up front as to whether or not we can help. 

We encourage all our members to be reasonably flexible as to their requirements as otherwise they are limiting their own options in meeting someone wonderful.

We encourage you to meet everyone you are matched with but ultimately whether two people choose to go on a date together, is the decision solely of the two people in question.

Please refer to the "Matchmaking Membership" page for more details of our membership packages.  

We definitely hope so but we cannot make any guarantees because in affairs of the heart, there are no guarantees.  If we could, we would!  We work with real people, with real lives and we deliver a service, not a product.  We do, however, have a 72% success rate in putting couple into a long term relationship.

If you have more questions about our service please use our CONTACT form and we will reply as soon as we can.
