I’d like to recommend Ignite Dating to anyone who is passionate about having a meaningful relationship. Michelle who is the founder and my matchmaker has been excellent! She has been very professional and provided a personalised service in order to match me with the right person. As a busy professional, mother of 2 as well as being previously divorced, Michelle was able to find someone that I was attracted to and that I was matched with both emotionally and on an intellectual level. Michelle took time to really get to know me and she was therefore able to find me a great match. We are looking forward to a future together and I never dreamed it would be my first introduction. Even better was the continued support throughout the dating journey which I am still receiving now I am in a committed relationship.


After many years as a single parent taking the plunge to go back into the dating market was a very daunting prospect. As an older chap, and after a couple of odd experiences I felt that the internet dating scene was too random, too risky and too time consuming, so I signed up with Michelle’s agency. Michelle spent a lot of time working with me, face to face, to profile me, my lifestyle, my likes and dislikes, my ambitions and goals. Because of her hard work, I have met some very lovely ladies who I know have been through the same checking process as me. Michelle has been excellent at pre-briefing, following up and providing feedback. She has always been available to provide support and counsel when I have needed it. She is brilliant at her job.


I got in touch a few years ago, when I was new to the dating scene after being in a long term marriage of 24 years. Dating had changed considerably compared to my younger days. I didn’t want to do online dating and I preferred to go to a matchmaking company instead.

I cannot sing Ignite’s praises loud enough. They have been absolutely brilliant at helping me navigate the dating game, and given me confidence. I have met some wonderful guys. Ignite is an intuitive matchmaker, very experienced in their field. Ignite genuinely care about you and are passionate about their business. They have always been helpful and supportive and given me guidance when I have needed it. It has been a pleasure working with them.


After recently divorcing and trying online, I quickly realised it wasn’t for me. I haven’t been in the dating market for over 20 years and with two young children and a busy job, I was finding it hard work trawling through apps. My first online date was a disaster and I came off the Internet. One of my friends recommended working with a headhunter and I found Michelle. She quickly understood my needs, and with her team’s support I feel less alone making this journey. I still haven’t met the ‘one’, but I’ve had some amazing dates with some great men. Ignite really understood my needs and made me feel hopeful again.


Michelle was excellent during the time that we worked together. I’m really glad I decided to use her services. She was very responsive to e-mails at every step and carefully selected appropriate people for me to meet, as well as taking any feedback I had on board and also giving me useful feedback throughout the process.

It’s thanks to Michelle’s efforts that I met my wife. We’ve now been happily married for several years, and it’s all thanks to Michelle for introducing us.



Michelle contacted me having seen my profile online. She sent me a really nice, non-intrusive message and asked me if I would like to speak to her about being introduced to one of her clients.

We spoke on the phone and met shortly after. Michelle was very open and honest and explained to me how her matchmaking services worked. Having used mainly dating apps to meet men I really liked how professionally run Michelle’s business was. Since meeting Michelle I have been on two dates with two different suitors, who although there was no chemistry between us, they were both very nice men. I really enjoy working with Michelle not only because she is incredibly astute when it comes to dating but also because she is a lot of fun!


Michelle is an exceptional dating consultant. I first met Michelle in December 2018. My marriage of 20 plus years had ended that summer. Michelle understood how difficult it was for me to re-enter the dating world.

She quickly got to know me and within less than two months she had introduced me to the wonderful woman who has now been my partner for the last year. I would have been lost without Michelle’s help and guidance; I will always be grateful to her.

Michelle introduced me to my partner five months into my membership, and things are going very well.

Michelle understood my needs as a busy professional; she provided regular updates, was patient when I was too busy to respond, and where necessary, took the initiative in progressing potential introductions, but always seeking my consent before confirming any actions.

Michelle also understood what I was looking for in a partner, and has a real insight on what makes people tick, which helped enormously when assessing potential introductions.


I lost my wife four years ago and my children persuaded me to start dating again. I was interviewed by Ignite and the matchmaker was extremely patient with me. It was emotional and she really understood how I was feeling. The interview lasted about two hours and the extensive profile that was written on my behalf really captured my personality. I feel hopeful that I will find someone to share the rest of my life with and so far it has been an extremely worthwhile investment in my future


As a widow I had not been in the dating game for over 30 years and the prospect of it was daunting. Ignite held my hand every step of the way and were very encouraging to me. They clearly knew the type of person who would suit me and on my third introduction I met my partner and we have been together for 5 years. I would have no hesitation in recommending Ignite Dating to guide you through the next step of your life.


After coming out of a long term relationship, the dating scene had somewhat changed. As a partner of a city firm, I just didn’t have the time to trawl the web and didn’t want my associates to see me online. I started working with Michelle and found the process to be interesting and easy.

Michelle took time getting to know what I valued in a woman and although it took a month for my first match, Karina and I are now on our fifth date and planning a skiing holiday together. Without the services of Ignite, our paths would never have crossed. I’m delighted.


I contacted Ignite Dating after a great deal of thought. It was literally decades since I had been on a date and the idea of internet dating made me anxious. Michelle at Ignite reassured me that their approach was safe. When we met she encouraged me to be honest about what was important to me. Michelle intuitively seemed to understand who I would get along with and I am still with the man she first introduced me to in July 2021. I would describe our relationship as a ‘slow burn’ but he is definitely a good match. We share interests, family values and are comfortable in each others company. I’m not sure where it will go, but at the moment we are having fun and I’m happy with that.


Working with Ignite Dating was delightful. The team, and especially my matchmaker Julie, was highly responsive to contact and always asked for feedback on dates. I felt that they really cared. By my sixth introduction I met a lovely man, who was totally different to what I thought I wanted, but we have really connected. I am enjoying getting to know him and I hope we have a long and loving future together.


I engaged the services of Ignite Dating and I found the process to be thorough, professional and supportive. After being divorced for some years, and the dating landscape somewhat changed, I was grateful for their support and sage advice. I met with some wonderful ladies and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their services.
