Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How do you determine my ideal match?
A. We talk with you, and we listen. We get to know you and what you’re looking for in a partner, and in life. We are trained to evaluate fit, personality match and assess relationship readiness. We then customize a strategy to find your most qualified matches. When we identify a potential match for you, we use our questionnaire, interview, assessments, and our matchmaker intuition to determine whether this person would be a good fit. We know your ideal match is out there and our mission is to find the most qualified matches to introduce to you.
Q. How many people will you match me with?
A. Our matchmaking contract is for one year and we will match you with as many qualified candidates as possible during that time. If we introduce you to someone with whom you would like to explore a relationship, we will put your contract on hold for a maximum of three (3) months. At that time we will either consider the search successful and closed, or we will restart the search and add the pause time onto the end of the contract.
Q. How much does it cost?
A. Matchmaking is a time-intensive business. The fee covers time spent with you to understand who you are and who you’re looking for, as well as time spent identifying, screening, and assessing potential candidates for you. Because success is not guaranteed, we need to feel fairly certain that we can successfully match you before we will consider becoming your personal matchmaker. Contact us to discuss fees and the possibility of working together.
Q. Who are Heart&Soul’s Clients?
A. Our clients are professional single men and women, generally between the ages of 25 and 65, who desire to meet other quality individuals in the metropolitan Charlotte area for committed long-term relationships.
Q. Do you offer other services besides matchmaking?
A. Yes! Founder Sheryl Spangler is a life and executive relationship coach. Optional services include date and relationship coaching (including our unique Coach on Call service), image consulting, and a concierge service to take care of date logistics. Contact us to find out the cost of these services.
Q. Who’s working to find my matches?
A. Executive relationship coach and founder Sheryl Spangler personally handles the searches for our clients. Consequently, she can only work with a small number of clients at a time. Exceptional personal service is our goal.
Q. Will anyone know I’m using a matchmaking service?
A. Only if you choose to tell them. Heart&Soul Matchmaking operates according to a strict code of ethics that protects your privacy in every way. Your personal information, photos, and questionnaire results will be kept fully confidential until you give clear consent for us to share specific items with potential matches.
Q. What does using a matchmaker say about me?
A. It says that you are serious about finding your life partner. It also says that you know you have to do something different in order to get a different result. We hire professionals in many areas of life where we don’t have expertise so why not in this most important area? You are busy with your life and career, and this is our career. We bring expertise and objectivity to the process of finding your ideal partner.
Q. Can you guarantee I’ll find that special someone?
A. We wish we could, but there are no guarantees in matchmaking. It would not be ethical of us to guarantee a match for everyone, and we will always be honest, respectful, and fair with each client when discussing their objectives and expectations. If we accept you as a client, we do so because we believe that we have a very good chance to find your match.
