Ideal Introductions Q & A

Why should I use Ideal?

Many people are not interested in using internet dating or if they have tried it, it ended without success. They also want privacy and to know every person they meet is actually on the same page.

You may have moved into the area in the last few years with limited social circles or simply just don’t have time to socialize. We help take the guess work out of dating and offer real advice, ongoing support, feedback and the opportunity to talk through your thoughts with someone who really does have your best interests at heart.

What are the differences between online dating and Ideal?

There are two main differences between Ideal Introductions and online dating. Having the ability to deal with real people who choose your matches for you on a compatibility level, means you have a much greater degree of success. We match with our heads, not our hearts.

You meet with the Matchmakers one-on-one and thoroughly discuss your relationship history, experiences and the style of person you want to meet. Throughout your membership, you will meet like-minded, emotionally available people, as well as receive continual support (as much or as little as you like).

We also provide dating tips and feedback evaluation on your dates. If you are having trouble getting past that first encounter, we take the guess work out of it for you and find out why it didn’t work and what you can do to make your next date more successful… we are the wizards at love!

The second main difference is knowing if people are ‘relationship ready’. When people break up from relationships they are generally straight online as they are isolated, lonely and craving that quick attention fix. These people are not emotionally available, but unfortunately online you can’t tell the difference between their profiles and the ones that are. Our clients have generally been single after a long term relationship for a minimum of six to twelve months and are emotionally available to move forward.

When was Ideal established?

Ideal Introductions has been operational since 1991.

Linda Prescott, the Director, first commenced working at Ideal in 1993 as a Matchmaker and later purchased the company in 1996 after falling in love with helping so many members fall in love.
