Dating & Introduction Frequently Asked Questions
Q. Why should I choose Select Personal Introductions?
A. Select Personal Introductions has never changed ownership or been part of a franchise nor does it have a diluted membership due to being spread too thinly across the United Kingdom, and it is not an online dating service. Established since 1997, the company has stood the test of time and concentrates on attracting single articulate people of the professions and introducing them to like-minded, compatible partners. Select has more professional members than any other agency in the Northwest and surrounding areas. For your peace of mind Select is regulated through membership of the Association of British Introduction Agencies.
Q. What about dating agency safety?
A. At this dating agency for professionals, a great deal of emphasis is placed on safety for everyone and identification of each applicant is checked to verify that they are who they say they are and live where they say they live.
Q. What makes Select Personal Introductions so different to online singles sites?
A. The Office of Fair Trading said the increased potential to meet new people online is being exploited by scammers to con people out of their money. Fraudsters generally target online singles columns and dating websites. The online profiles they create are fictitious and are usually accompanied with fake photographs. Members of Select Personal Introductions acknowledge that all information supplied is true and accurate and in no way misleading. This is monitored by our professional team of dating experts. Our singles membership base is expertly policed and any information found to be false would lead to immediate termination of membership.
Q. Will I be video’d?
A. No, we do not use computers, videos or any dating gimmicks during the matchmaking process. As a professional introductions agency, it is important that we learn as much about you as possible. To help us achieve this, we prefer every new Select member to meet with one of our highly experienced dating consultants at our offices. Of course, we understand that this is not always feasible, especially as we are catering for busy professionals, which is why we offer Skype interviews as well. It is a great opportunity for us to answer your questions and for you to learn more about how our professional introductions service works. Our consultant will expertly identify your key relationship needs, i.e. values, expectations and communication styles to help to introduce you to members with complementary personalities. As the Northwest’s largest professional introductions agency this personal attention is an important first step in our service to you.
Q. Are people who join only looking for marriage?
A. People join us for many reasons, all of them very personal. Mainly however, they fall into three groups – those looking for marriage, those looking for a long term relationship and those looking for close friendships. Whatever your reason for joining us, you can be sure that we will introduce you to people with whom we believe you are compatible.
Q. I’m too busy to meet someone – can Select Personal Introductions help me?
A. Professional single people are working longer hours making it almost impossible to find love without professional help. Everybody seems to be in the busy ‘career trap’ leaving very little time for a fulfilling personal life. Unlike other introduction agencies, our dedicated consultants do all the hard work for you. We carry out partner searches and personally select matches that fulfil specified criteria.
Q. How does Select Personal Introductions introduce people?
A. We understand that our members are busy, professional people, and so Select Personal Introductions service is dedicated to making the search for your ideal partner as simple as possible. Our consultants work closely with you to build a clear and accurate portfolio detailing your interests, life priorities and future goals and all introductions can be discussed with you personally. It is an all important part of our professional introduction service.
Q. I have a young children, is that a problem?
A. No, absolutely not. Select Personal Introductions membership covers a wide range of people including many single parents. Our large and ever growing membership gives you the opportunity to start dating again and to find someone to suit you and your family.
A. We are all looking for different things in people and in our relationships. What each individual is particular about forms the basis of our personally tailored membership. Our detailed portfolios, recent photographs and up to date membership information helps to identify the right introductions.
Q. There are lots of dating sites & dating apps, why should I join Select Personal Introductions?
A. Most dating sites & dating apps work using algorithms where members can logon to the platform and view photographs and details of other members. It’s also a fact that most users of these sites often trawl through the photographs first, with much older members choosing the younger profiles. It would seem that no real thought is ever given to real relationship needs and most men move from one profile to another very quickly! Statistics show that very few relationships develop from this method of dating.
Let’s face it; dating sites don’t mind if we lie on our profile – they are still making money and they know that we all like to sound better than we actually are. We want to appear more attractive, more successful and more financially savvy. Whether you write your own profile or enlist the help of the dating site, the truth will always be embellished! With this in mind, if you sound greater and better, then many other members do too which poses the questions, are the details truly accurate? Do members get to logon and change or update their details at any time and if so, how is this monitored?
At Select Personal Introductions, all member details are taken using a carefully devised personal programme allowing no room for exaggerated truths! We want all our members to have an honest evaluation of the person we are introducing them to so that they have a real chance of taking that all important first meeting on to a new level. Membership is carefully monitored by our professional team of dating agency consultants and our unique feedback system helps to keep our singles membership base up to date.
Q. Did you know?
A. The majority of popular online dating sites and computerised services link in with one main database of single people. So it does not matter which site you sign up to, you will still be getting the same choice of people – from all over the country and from all walks of life, whether you pay £500 or £50. So, if you consider yourself more intelligent, articulate and attractive and if you are looking to meet people of the professions, joining an independent agency such as Select Personal Introductions could be your key to success.
