"We have been married 16 years and counting thanks to Tee! With her extensive network of friends, family and global acquaintances, coupled with her  uncanny ability to truly "get" people, she led me to Mr. Right!"

We now live together and there has been no doubt since the day we met that we belong together. Thank you to Lisa for introducing us and knowing we would be great together!" 

Greg and Alicia

Testimonial #3

"Having been on the dating scene for almost twenty years in NYC/CT with no luck, it took Tee only a few minutes in her mental rolodex, a phone call, and the rest is history.  I’ve been married to my husband, Drum for five years now and we have two beautiful boys together.  Tee has a gift and we are forever grateful. Thank you Tee!"

How do you match people?

We use a very advanced matchmaking and award winning software that applies the information into our database that you provide, in addition to us personally selecting matches for you. We analyze your criteria, and then start the process once your profile is matched in our system. The beauty of our operating program is that your identity is not exposed to the public and is only seen by us. We ask for a lot of information because the more knowledge we have of your likes and dislikes and pertinent data, the easier it will be for us to find you matches 2 a tee! Also, you can always add more photos and information on your profile page and update it regularly. It is very user friendly. 

How do you screen people?

After we collect all the information and photos, and someone seems to be a good match, we will then contact them to set up an interview. During this process, we find out more about them, and finally we tell them a little about you to make sure they’re a good match. If you agree, you will then receive more information on them and have the chance to say “yes” or “no” to meeting them. 

What does it cost?

The Social membership level allows you to be in our database for as long as you want and you will be notified when a good match comes up.  The upgraded levels, Platinum and Premium, will include us actively looking for good matches for you and communicating with you on a regular basis.  We will work very closely with you and spend a lot of time looking for your matches and will also search outside our network and with other matchmaking organizations if necessary. Many of our clients consist of working professionals and entrepreneurs who don’t have time to find a companion. For further info please contact us.
