UPDATE:  So Alan Goodman sends me an email from a fake address saying I should expect a check  in the mail.  I guess he spoke with an attorney who advised him about the contracts he signed.  Remember, he spent 30 minutes changing my contract to suit him.  I received a lengthy letter with many stipulations if I cash the check.  He told many, many untruths in this letter.  This guy wouldn’t know the truth if it bit him!

Just FYI…the second year I was in business a client stopped payment on a $35 check (the introduction fee) and I hired an attorney and chased her for 3 years to go to court.  I won and for triple damages AND INTEREST for 3 yrs.!  So what do you think I would do for a $2900 check?  I adhere closely to my contracts and so should you.

Anyway, as I said below when he signed the contracts he scribbled his name illegibly.  Well his name was not scribbled illegibly on this letter or check he sent.  So obviously he had no intention of following through!  He just wanted to see who I had as clients and then stopped payment on his scribbled check.   I didn’t even take his check until 90 minutes into the interview! 

In this letter he made many, many demands if I were to cash this minimal check which HE decided should be my worth!  Mainly wanting me to destroy evidence that he actually became a client in case he decides to pursue this in some way.  This guy is a total nightmare!  Remember he is a financial advisor…don’t accept a signed contract or check from him with a scribble for his name.  Make sure his signature is legible.

This guy calls me about a month ago named Alan G. who lives in Boulder is a financial advisor and is age 55.  He’s so excited about what he read on the website and about working with me.  Makes an appointment for the interview then shortly before that day cancels but in short order reschedules.  So he has a month to ask questions, read through more of the website, etc.

I work from home to mitigate overhead to keep my fees lower than other Denver matchmaking services or Denver dating services so when I expect a client it is a process with my puppy and cat as well as I do not have a cleaning team (I do everything) to get ready for a new client.  It is a time consuming process not like stepping into a clean office that a cleaning crew cleaned overnight.  I want my clients to feel that they matter to me and I show that by the way I present my home, office as well as myself for their interview.

He comes in and the first thing he does is change my contract.  He clearly was not going to sign it as I’ve used it for 29 years so I decided to make some changes geared towards his comfort level.  WHO DOES THAT???????  But I did.  Spent the whole first 30 minutes on that.  He tells me he’s skittish (not the right word but can’t remember it) about the process.  That he hasn’t dated that much.  BTW, when I asked what services he’s used before he lists several internet dating sites.  So obviously he has been dating to a great extent.

So instead of coming right out and just saying he wants a younger woman, which he should have just done in that very first FREE phone consultation, he dances around it and everyone I showed him was too old or not his type.  Although he’s tall he’s a slim, small boned man so I guess women who are not tiny intimidate him.  He bugged me about presenting his profile to women even if they stated their age range was way under his age of 55.  Well I can’t do that!  If there is a 2 or 3 year difference I can do that but more than that is not respecting the criteria and preferences set forth by my other clientsIf you take the time to read reviews of other local matchmaking/dating services the one common complaint is that they were not set up with people who met the preferences and criteria they set forth.  This service is NOT like that which I explained  repeatedly but he insists that because he looks a bit younger than his age and is thin that he deserves a younger woman…

Well some of his challenges besides that were his location and his daughter as well as the fact he is not interested in having more children.  So just those things would preclude some people from meeting him.  So he sends me an email tonight reiterating that he strongly hopes I will present his profile to women regardless of their stated age preferences.  Again, I cannot do that!  So I reiterated what I’ve already said numerous times today.  He writes back and says to tear up his check and he will not post negative reviews about my service.  He threatened me!  So after dealing with this guy for a month, wasting 2.5 hours today, changing my contract for him, showing him confidential profiles he expects me to tear up his check.

Since business owners don’t have a venue to post about their lousy clients I have to post this here.  Hopefully you will glean the correct information from this.




Positives of Internet Dating Sites

Convenience, Easy to Lie, Free or Lower Fees, Meet as many people as will meet you

Negatives of Internet Dating Services

Easy to Lie, People who are just playing around on the site, Old or fake pictures, People jumping to wrong conclusions about what you’ve written, Clients are not held accountable, No one there to correct misconceptions, No one to assist you in directing your search more accurately, No one to counsel you when people don’t respond to your winks, smiles or notes, No way to know whether people are felons because they may use fake names, No way to know whether they are married or seriously involved with someone already, No one to let you know why they disappeared, monthly fee…and the list goes on.

People often ask how many clients I have or how many are in their age range.  These are frequently people who have used Internet Dating Sites.  Well if you’ve used those and there are hundreds of people on them but you are still calling me then doesn’t that scream that it’s NOT a numbers game?  It’s not the amount of people…it’s about finding the right person.


One time investment fee, open-ended contract, current pictures of all clients, extensive profile taken by Matchmaker Michele personally of each client, clients are held accountable for their actions, people who are genuinely serious about marriage and/or a permanent relationship, counseling and coaching for each client, a matchmaker who knows every client and has interviewed every client, hands-on matchmaker available 7 days a week, clients who you know are not married or seriously involved, reasonable fee(s) (per introduction fee of $35 on both sides), direct feedback from the matchmaker about what your match thought and is thinking going forward if they have not been clear or communicative, a matchmaker with 29 years of experience, a matchmaker who ONLY accepts new clients who fit what her current clientele is looking for, ongoing support from your personal matchmaker.


Each client works solely and directly with Matchmaker Michele, there is a protocol in her service to make sure things run smoothly, you are required to tell the truth and update any information that changes including updating pictures, investment fee is required at the time of the interview in full, because Michele the Matchmaker is a REAL matchmaker and zeros in on the RIGHT match for each client clients need to have patience for however long the process takes in this open-ended contract.

The above are not necessarily negatives depending on your personal perception and opinions.




Anyone who calls for their FREE phone consultation has as much time as they need to think about whether this service is right for them, they are prepared and ready to take this step and to call and chat with me as many times as needed BEFORE making an appointment.

But once you schedule an appointment, I send you info and you respond likewise, come in and sign both contracts which CLEARLY STATE NO REFUND OF FEES that’s it.  If you then feel you’ve made a mistake, it is YOUR mistake.  I have held up my end of the bargain by talking with you as much as needed, preparing you for the interview and success in the service, gone through the trouble of preparing for your in-person interview in my home office, conducting the two hour interview which includes sharing CONFIDENTIAL client profiles I expect a grown up professional person to follow through.

If for whatever reason you decide not to then that is your mistake and your loss.  You have to be an adult and recognize that.  NO REFUNDS…29 years of experience in this field and all that I go through before you even come in qualifies me to not have to refund any monies because you became insecure, flaked out, got an email from an ex that upset you or whatever.  I have fulfilled my side of the contract and intend to do so going forward.  If you don’t wish to then you have to take the loss as a lesson and move on!

During my recent visit to Green Valley, AZ I found there is a dire need for a veteran matchmaker in the Sahuarita area.  There are many single, divorced, widowed and widower-ed people living in that area who are desperate for the assistance of a professional matchmaker.  Whether you or a friend or relative may have an interest I am trying to get an idea of how many people in these areas are interested…so contact me by email or phone and let me know if you or someone you know might be interested.

So here, in the beginning of my 29th year practicing the old fashioned approach to matchmaking while incorporating technology I will be working in Green Valley which will include Tucson and the Sahuarita areas twice a year to conduct one-on-one personal interviews.  I will be in Tucson March 11th thru March 16th to conduct personal interviews.  Yes, starting in 2018 you will have a seasoned professional Tucson matchmaker, Sahuarita matchmaker and Green Valley matchmaker!

The first 20 clients (10 women and 10 men) will be charged a one time lower investment flat fee of $500 to build the base of the clientele.  There always is a per introduction fee on both sides of $35.  After that my fee is based on personal information supplied by each client.  That is NOT based on income or worth.

My service extends all clients an open-ended contract meaning you are a client until you achieve your goal (however long that may be).  You may meet as many people as you feel are a good match who in turn wish to meet you based on an extensive profile as well as pictures!
