Boston Matchmakers Reviews (Cost, Complaints, & Praise)

Boston Matchmakers Reviews

Tired of navigating the singles scene on your own? A Boston matchmaker can make it so much easier to finally meet high-quality people. But first you have to choose the right one for you - and you’ve got a lot of options.

These Boston Matchmakers reviews will help you narrow down your short list.

From their matchmaking process and cost to authentic customer complaints and praise, find out what you can expect from this Boston dating agency.

For starters…

It’s Part Of One Big Happy Family

Boston Matchmakers has offices in Boston, Braintree, Woburn, and Marlborough. But this dating service’s family is much larger.

Boston Matchmakers is owned by the same parent company that runs matchmaking websites across the nation, like Texas Singles, Maryland Matchmakers, and Mature Singles Only.

The websites all share a similar format. To find out more information about how the matchmaking service actually works, you answer a few questions and provide your personal contact info so that a matchmaker can contact you:

But before tapping “Complete,” check out “we respect your privacy” actually means, as detailed in this section of their privacy policy:

And then there’s this to consider:

So long story short, by submitting your email address and phone number, you’re granting them permission to release that personal data to other marketing companies.

Boston Matchmakers probably gets paid by these marketing companies for providing sales leads, so they’re likely making money off you before you’ve even talked to your matchmaker!

But maybe an increase in oddly specific Facebook banner ads, spam email and telemarketer calls to your cell phone doesn’t bother you. Who knows, maybe you’ll be offered a service or product you actually want to buy.

Clicking “complete” brings up the opportunity to share even more personal data with Boston Matchmakers, so that they can learn more about you as well as what type of people you want to meet:

Don’t worry, this form isn’t mandatory. You can answer all the questions when a Boston Matchmakers representative calls you. The initial phone consultation covers all the basics - you’ll describe your life, relationship goals, and dating history.

Apart from getting to know you, the other goal of the phone call is to set up the in-person meeting with a matchmaker. And that’s when you’ll answer the million dollar question...

How Much Does Boston Matchmakers Cost?

That’s one question you won’t find answered on the website. Instead, you’ll find out how much Boston Matchmakers service will cost you during the sales presentation at their office.

Membership packages are tailored to each individual client, meaning the pricing isn’t the same for every member. Variables include the length of time you want to commit to, how many matches you’d like to meet, and personal details like your finances and credit situation.

You’ll also likely find some “last minute” specials will be on the table, especially if you say no to the first number. In fact, that’s the plus side to not having prices set in stone - you can negotiate. On the flip side, that also means you’ll more than likely be subjected to a “hard sell.”

But to give you a starting point, Boston Matchmaking reviewers reported spending $8,000 for a set number of matches, ranging from 6 to 14.

All of the pertinent details like cost and number of matches will be added to your contract. You’ll sign that at the end of the consultation. You’ll also pay up front. So make sure you don’t leave any questions unvoiced. Boston Matchmakers fee is non-refundable.

What To Expect From Boston Matchmakers

Once you’ve signed on as a client, you’ll be matched with other paying clients in the database.

Your matchmaker will identify profiles of Boston singles she thinks may interest you. You can also access the Boston Matchmakers member login page to browse through profiles on your own.

This Boston dating agency has a ‘mutual agreement’ matching process, meaning both halves of the pair must express interest. When that happens, you’ll receive her contact info and vice versa.

Initiating contact is on you, although your matchmaker will encourage you to do it within 3 days. If you arrange a date, you can let your matchmaker know what you thought about the quality of the match afterwards.

Boston Matchmakers was also the subject of an article in the Boston Globe, after a customer named Tom Bluthardt reported paying $1,000 but only receiving one match - and then hearing nothing but crickets for 7 months.

As he told the Globe, he was on a dating site when he received a call from Boston Matchmakers. He was asked if he was interested in “real” matchmaking services. They apparently had gotten his phone number from his profile.

This Boston dating agency has also been the subject of 4 reviews on RipOff Reports. This one is from a client who was told prior to signing the contract that there were many matches who met her criteria, only to be told something different later on:

While the negative Boston Matchmakers reviews outweigh the positive ones online, that’s not to say your experience couldn’t be a good one. Only you can decide if they are the best option for you, or if you should consider other Boston matchmakers.
