Love is a thing that many people expect to just happen. You just wake up one day and BAM you’re in love- but with that theory comes an element of chance, a certain aspect of “right place, right time”. Which leads us to believe that these people who believe that love just happens to you without your knowing, did not expect it to happen. They did not have a feeling of certainty.

Irish Matchmaker

“Life is a flower of which love is the honey” ~Victor Hugo There is an estimated 7.1 billion people on this planet, and out of that horde of individuals, 46% are looking for that one other person that they want to spend the rest of their life with. Easy. Not exactly, although the maths are in your favour, it has never been harder to find ‘the one’ and with stories of ‘childhood sweetheart’ filling our timelines, it seems like there is no hope.

Unlucky in love?

Have you tried everything and still cannot find that perfect partner? Are you looking for a committed, long-term relationship? If you answered YES to these questions, you are not alone! 

Or we do find someone and shortly after we realise that they are just not right for us, they don’t share the same likes and then we have to start all over again.

Tips on what not to do at the start of a new relationship:

  1. Don’t focus too much on the future, take it one step at a time.
  2. Don’t question every little thing.
  3. Don’t over analyse things.
  4. Don’t assume you are official before you actually are.
  5. Don’t act like your life revolves around them.

Matchmaking in Ireland’s capital is made a lot easier with so many great places for the perfect date

Dating your perfect partner is the best part of signing up to a matchmaking service, and Dublin is one of the best places to do it. The city has so much to offer that it’s hard to know where to start, so here’s our guide.

Matchmaking is a Walk in the Park


Phoenix Park is a chance to get back to nature. A great place for a picnic with your date, this park is home to some of Dublin’s best greenery. The Emerald Isle is famous for its lush grass, and even in the nation’s busy capital this is still true.

As Dublin’s leading professional matchmaking service, we at Perfect Partners have our own view on Channel 4’s latest offering

The premise of Married at First Sight is that two people who have just met can get married, but we at Perfect Partners disagree. The idea is that, after a series of questionnaires, a panel of people can create six potential matches out of 1,500 applicants. The producers then arrange for the couple to get married, and they bride and groom meet each other for the first time at the altar. Despite what they claim, Channel 4 have not found the secret to love.

For Dublin’s best matchmakers, the matchmaking process involves listening, understanding, and paying attention to details.


Matchmaking is a system that has worked many times because of its straightforwardness. There are no hidden complexities and no tricks, just kind, informative, and intelligent people who know how to find your Perfect Partner. To show you how uncomplicated but effective the process is, here is a step by step guide.


Step One: Initial Meetings


We meet up and we talk. For some matchmaking services, this is a brisk one-on-one conversation that happens once and can be capped at half an hour. For us, this could be one of many conversations lasting two hours if necessary, and we make a point of having two matchmakers attend each meeting. We also don’t charge for the initial meeting. We want you to feel relaxed, not pressured into anything, so that you can reveal your true self to us. On this trust, we hope to move forward.

Professional matchmaking is relatively new industry, and so there are few misunderstandings about it.

Unless they have researched or experienced it themselves, most people don’t really know what professional matchmaking consists of. So here is the truth behind five popular matchmaking misconceptions.

It’s just like TV!

Fans of Kelsey Grammer’s successful sitcom will remember the matchmaker episode. Charlotte, owner of Charlotte’s Web Matchmaking, encourages Frasier to sign up to her service. After being encouraged to lie on his profile by his friend Roz, several bad dates, and watching his matchmaker break down and cry in front of him Frasier asks for his money back. Needless to say, Charlotte’s matchmaking service is absolutely terrible example….

Browsing through profiles and shaking hands with your own personal cupid are two very different services.

The dating industry has been on the rise for many years, and since the shady beginnings of the first online dating site 20 years ago, it has now developed to a point where there is a clear difference between online dating websites and bespoke professional matchmaking.

It is hard to find love in a world that is increasingly fast paced, but is resorting to online dating the solution?

Online dating has been hailed as the solution to dating for many years,which explains its surge in profits and popularity. However, those who are interested creating an account to find love should be wary of some of online dating’s many problems.

Last year, online dating fraud increased by a third

In a nine month period leading up to December 2014, online dating fraud increased by 33% when compared with the same period in 2013. This fraud cost the British public 34 million pounds, as opposed to 24.5 million pounds in 2013. In the past, online dating scams have included people pretending to be US soldiers in Iraq and people pretending to be cancer patients.

Online dating websites have been accused of sexism and ageism

Both the policies and the people involved in online dating sites have been accused of sexism and ageism by noted Washington Post journalist Caitlin Dewey. She heavily criticised the firing of Tinder’s only female co-founder and suggested that the nature of it reflected Tinder’s values, or lack of them, with regards to diversity. When it was revealed that Tinder were charging older people more for certain services, she went on to criticise not just Tinder but online dating in general for its obsession with youth.

Online journalist Alan Martin went further with his allegations of sexism and claimed that women who spend “any amount of time on OKCupid” are “likely to be indecently proposed or sent abusive messages.”

Online dating is full of clichés

Online dating is so full of meaningless or outright misleading clichés that the BBC decided to publish an article which translated the secret language of online dating clichés. Evidently, it is not enough to simply write about who you are. Using online dating means buying into a secret code.

A relationship is a complicated thing, and so the secret to finding a happy relationship is often shrouded in misinformation.


The truth is that a happy relationship requires hard-work and commitment. Yet, many people don’t want to hear this and as a result many myths about happy relationships still exist. Be sure to look out for these tall tales about love.

Here’s how you know when you have a potential game changer guy on your hands


“I was anxious, and I admit very skeptical, about joining PerfectPartners and perhaps meeting someone new, particularly as I have (a daughter) Jessica to consider but you did it. I don’t know how you realised it, but Paul is perfect for me. We spend a lot of time together and never seem to stop talking! Jessica really likes him too so thanks a million Bill.”
