|While I was comparing my options for which matchmaking service in Portland to use, the transparency at Portland Gay Matchmaking was the deciding factor for me! Not a lot of matchmakers specialize in LGBT dating so they really caught my eye. Other Portland matchmakers wanted me to come in for a 2 hour interview, before even quoting me a price! Emily and her team treated me as an intelligent individual right from the get go. They answered all my questions and I made an educated decision to hire them. I am glad I did! Most matchmakers send out their clients on blind dates, and frankly, it makes their job easier. I am picky about who I meet, but Emily and her team has worked diligently on my requests. I am immensely satisfied with their personal attention and hard work!

|Portland Gay Matchmaking is a world apart from other matchmaking services in the area. I had used two other matchmaking services before – both of them used high pressured sales techniques and arranged blind dates for me. They promised me the moon while selling me, but the blind dates were complete letdowns! I love that with Portland Gay Matchmaking I am actively involved in the process. I get to review my potential matches before I decide to invest time in meeting them. Not every date I have gone out on has been a success, but my matchmakers take my feedback and the next person I meet is always better than the one I met before!

|Good gay men do exist in Portland, but sadly, you won’t find them on Grindr! People who are serious about meeting quality individuals and getting in a relationship are not out there on free dating sites. It is just the reality of the world we live in. If you want to go for casual dating, online dating might be for you. But for anything more meaningful, I recommend a local matchmaker. If you time is worth something, use Portland Gay Matchmaking!

|Before I decided to be a part of Portland Gay Matchmaking, I had tried online dating for a few years (well, who hasn’t). I was truly disillusioned with the people I came across on dating sites. I am a complex individual with real emotions, ambitions, apprehensions..a profile on a dating site just couldn’t convey all that. Winking and emailing back and forth just wasn’t for me. I really appreciate the personal interest my matchmakers at Portland Gay Matchmaking showed in understanding me as an individual. I didn’t just want to go out on dates, I could do that on my own. I wanted to meet a select few quality men who I could consider spending the rest of my life with. If you are a relationship minded individual like me, Portland Gay Matchmaking is the service for you!
|I love how Portland Gay Matchmaking arranges the actual dates for me. I am new in town and Emily’s team took care of all the minute details of the three dates I have been on! From picking out a restaurant to making an actual reservation, they are there to handle the details!

|I was hesitant about using a matchmaker at first, especially since I just came out, but now, looking back, I’m glad I took the chance!

|I am divorced and a single mom which makes it really hard to meet people. Emily has been more than a matchmaker for me, she has been a friend and a coach who has helped me evaluate my priorities! Sometimes finding the right one start with you BEING the right one. That was the most important lesson I have learned from Emily. Her coaching has helped me in regaining my confidence! Emily started with expanding my social circle before I was setup with any one on one dates. I really needed to get out of my house, and Emily made that happen!
