Sarasota Singles Reviews [Legit Florida Matchmaking Service?]

Sarasota Singles reviews

Thinking about hiring this Florida dating agency? You probably have a lot of questions, like how much the matchmaking service costs, where they’re located, and what past clients thought of their experience.

These Sarasota Singles reviews have all that, and more!

From the small independents to the big players, we've reviewed over 200 matchmaking services. Our insight comes from 14+ years in the industry, comprehensive research, real customer reviews, and a deep understanding of the matchmaking landscape.

Local Singles, Not So Local Company...

You may have noticed there’s no local address for Sarasota Singles on the website. That’s because they’re owned by a national company that’s based out of Broken Arrow, Oklahoma.

According to a WINK news investigation, Romance Pros International also owns Naples SinglesTampa Singles and DC Singles.

The owner of Romance Pros, William Broadbent, has quite a few other matchmaking services under his ownership as well, according to the Better Business Bureau:

It’s actually a longer list than that - there are at least 100 similar websites in the US and Canada.

That being said, you’ll be matched with singles in Sarasota - but it may not be by a local matchmaker.

Signing Up For Sarasota Singles

The first step to signing up is either calling the number on their website, or filling out this simple contact form:

contact form

Clicking the green “Complete” button also grants them permission to share your personal contact information with third party service providers, as outlined in the Privacy Policy you probably didn’t read:

The above paragraph exempts Sarasota Singles from the “Do Not Call” list, as well as any of those third party service providers they share your personal information with. It also lets you know you can expect an increase in personalized ads on social media sites like Facebook.

This paragraph lets you know you’ll be contacted by other providers of direct marketing services. Which likely means the parent company of all those “local” matchmaking websites is also in the business of selling your personal data.

But assuming you do go ahead and share your info, you’ll then see a form with questions like these that will help your matchmaker learn about you:

Filling out the form isn’t a requirement, though. You can also just wait and go over your background, relationship history and goals, etc. with the matchmaker when she gets in touch with you.

She’ll make arrangements to meet you in person, and that’s when you’ll get definitive answers about cost, matchmaking process, contracts... Basically all the important details that aren’t listed anywhere on the website.

Once you’ve signed the contract, you’ll be matched with other Sarasota singles in their database. They provide contact information and you can arrange to meet your date. While you receive some basic background information, you won’t get to see photos.

Here is how a Sarasota Singles matchmaker explained the matching process in a response to a BBB complaint:

How Much Does Sarasota Singles Cost?

According to some of the reviews you’ll read in just a bit, Sarasota Singles is somewhat flexible when it comes to the final price tag. But being open to negotiation also means you're likely to experience some very persuasive sales pitches.

Sarasota Singles Cost

You may also find the price is affected by factors like your credit limit/score and your present financial state. Customers reported spending between $1,000 and $7,000 in Sarasota Singles BBB reviews.

Once the cost is settled, you’ll sign a contract for the matchmaking services. Make sure you fully understand everything that’s put on paper, as that’s what will end up being legally binding.

Sarasota Singles won’t provide a refund after 3 business days. Being on the same page before picking up the pen is essential.

As the matchmaking service explained in this response to a BBB complaint, there are no guarantees when it comes to the frequency and time frame of the referrals. And they may not match your criteria:

Internet reviews are a great resource when it comes to helping you create a list of questions to ask your matchmaker before committing to a contract. But they shouldn’t be the only deciding factor.

As with any personal service, you’ll want to consider multiple options and trust your instincts. Are you comfortable with the prospect of blind dates, and with signing a contract for a non-refundable service you haven’t gotten a taste of yet?

If not, maybe you should think about a matchmaking service like VIDA Select, where contracts aren’t required and you get to see a full profile - including photos - of your potential matches before you agree to meet them.
