Why you should choose a headhunter matchmaking service over database matching

Many people turn to dating apps and websites for convenience, quick connections and, let’s face it, because a lot of them are free.

Some of these dating platforms use databases and algorithms to match single people with like-minded individuals also registered with the site. Others simply send you a load of profiles that loosely fit the criteria you set out on registration and let you make your own mind up.

Sounds pretty good right?

Well, yes and no.

Depending on what you’re looking for, database matching might work for you – particularly if you are searching for something more casual. But if you’re looking for love and genuine connections, headhunter matchmaking services can be a lot more effective.

And we’re going to tell you why.

You don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket

By relying on database matching, whether in the form of dating agencies or apps, you are essentially putting all of your eggs into one basket.

You’re essentially trusting that your perfect partner-to-be is with the same agency or database app as you, at the exact same time that you are looking for love, and that they happen to be looking for the exact same things that you have said you bring. Realistically speaking, those odds aren’t great.

Ultimately, it’s a bit of a game of luck and when it comes to finding love, you don’t really want to leave it to chance.

Not only this, but database matchmaking can feel restrictive (even with thousands of potential matches in the system) because it reflects a more ‘take it or leave it approach’. What we mean by this is that once you’ve explored all of your potential matches, you might end up settling for someone who ultimately isn’t exactly what you are looking for simply because you believe those are the only options available to you through your chosen platform.

However, it’s important to remember that there’s a big wide world out there that you don’t ever see, so don’t settle for someone that you know isn’t right from the start.

Databases rely on robots

One of the key differences when it comes to database matching versus headhunting matchmaking services is that databases rely on machines and algorithms, where headhunters rely on actual people with a real intuition for finding that perfect partner.

And these people can understand your wants and needs better than any robot ever can because they have human emotions themselves. 

What’s more, matchmaking services like Ignite Dating are very personalised and allow you to be more descriptive and specific about what you want from a relationship and a potential partner. Your matchmaker’s job is to help find you love, and they are totally dedicated to matching you with the perfect partner – someone who shares the same values, aspirations and lifestyle as you.

Plus, when it comes to the dating journey, if you’ve not had much luck in the past or you feel like you’ve exhausted all your options, matchmaking services can offer the extra support and personal touch you’ve been looking for.

Matchmakers take on a lot of the hard work

And finally, why spend hours swiping through dating apps or chasing potential partners that might not be looking for the same things as you when a dedicated matchmaker can take on a lot of this stress for you.

The matchmaker’s job is to not only understand what you’re looking for in a partner but also to appreciate the little things that make you who you are. This will help them to decipher what is really important to you and find you potential matches that have the best chance of success. So, all you have to do is sit back, relax and wait for the call, knowing that your dedicated matchmaker has done all of the hard work for you to find you that potential partner that you have been searching for.

This can make the dating journey a lot less stressful for you as you get the fun parts of dating, like getting to know someone and enjoying a dating journey that is sure to leave you feeling energised, confident, and safe – just as it should be!
