Shannon Tebb: Matchmaker & Life Coach

Shannon Tebb matchmaker

This Toronto matchmaker said she’s a “small-town girl turned big city dating expert.” She described observing her mom interact with other adults as she was growing up, and being fascinated by it. 

I never played with Barbies — instead I was the kid sitting at the dinner table listening to my mom chat with her friend. I was always intrigued by that.

Her interest in relationships never waned, and she studied anthropology and sociology in college. She spent a lot of her time giving dating and relationship advice to her friends, and also became a certified Life Coach.

Tebb started thinking about turning her coaching into a paying gig, and the idea for Shanny In The City came to fruition after seeing the movie Hitch. 

As she told

I wanted to do that, what Will Smith was doing, but in real life. I feel really passionate about helping men and women be better daters.

She launched her coaching service in 2010.

As she explained in an interview

I was very passionate about helping singles get back into dating. I work with a lot of divorcees, people that maybe don’t know how to navigate the dating world nowadays - everything has changed with online dating.

After hosting a number of social events around the city, she realized she had built up a large network of singles and used that database to transition into matchmaking. 

She still offers dating and life coaching coaching as part of her services.

Her Matchmaking Process

Tebb works with professional singles, typically ages 25 to 60, in Toronto and the GTA.

As with most Toronto matchmakers, the first step for interested potential clients is filling out the online submission form.

You’ll then schedule a consultation to discuss the services available. The consultation is free when done via a video call, or $125 when the interview is in person. 

After the meeting, you’ll choose which of the membership options is best for you and sign a 1-year contract. Shanny In The City matchmaking costs start at $1,575.

Once you’ve signed up, you’ll be introduced to Toronto singles from the Shanny In The City database. As she explains

I try to visualize the two singles together. I believe you can match on paper, but there also has to be that level of chemistry and sparks and excitement. If I can kind of see two singles together, that’s a good chance that it’s going to be a great match.

Tebb presents one match at a time, and when there is mutual interest she exchanges phone numbers on your behalf. 

She recommends a progression of chatting on the phone, then a video date, and then if both you and your match are comfortable with it, an in-person date.

You can also add on coaching services like her “Wingwoman” program, where Tebb or one of her team accompanies you on a mock date. 

They evaluate how you present yourself and offer strategies for improving the impression you make.

A 2 ½ hour coaching session is $350. Her life coaching sessions cost $175 for 60 minutes.

Deciding which matchmaking service to hire isn’t just about reviews, it’s also about how the service fits with your expectations and needs.
