How to set up dating agency
I cannot stress how futile these words of so called advice were to me at that time and if you’re single and reading this, undoubtedly you will have heard them too.I tried everything available to me for Brighton singles, where I lived. Other dating events included dinner parties or use of a dating agency, but their fees were outrageous.Join an established agency, with a good reputation, which asks clients for proof of identity and guarantees all applicants are vetted.Check to see if the agency belongs to the Association of British Introduction Agencies. Midsummer's Eve IS a member of the ABIA - the FIRST and ONLY online dating sites to be accepted as full members!We also provide opportunities to meet through a Personal Introduction.I set the company up due to my experiences as a past user of online dating sites.'You need someone generous,' she said, my husband's name unspoken between us, 'with a bank account, not a piggy bank'.And so, just before Christmas, I meet Mairead Molloy.
They met at 5pm in the upstairs bar and spent an hour and a half talking about what she wanted in a partner.‘I asked her about the sort of men they had on their books and she told me she had two men immediately in mind for me. I asked specifically if these men were looking for a quick fling or a long-term relationship and she said, “If they’re paying upwards of £500 for membership, then they’re looking for a relationship.” ’She then enquired about meeting Tim but was told that he was now in a relationship and had come off their books. A strange email exchange ensued in which he informed her in pidgin English that while he was ‘very happy and excited to meet a person of such attractive profile’, he was ‘only a novice in the single life’.
The company, Elect Club, claimed to have the ‘largest private database of single professionals in London’, including business leaders and entrepreneurs.
On its website, it boasted of being ‘the number one dating agency in the UK’ with branches in several major cities.‘Elect Club is an exclusive social network for attractive, dynamic, eligible professionals looking for a serious relationship,’ it said.
Make sure the agency will never give out your surname or address to other clients.
Some agencies will only withhold your details if you specifically request it.
