OUR GOAL IS TO FIND FOR YOU THE LOVE OF YOUR LIFE WHILE YOU ARE BUSY DOING OTHER THINGS
This is exactly why, before we start working with our exclusive Clients, it is essential that we fully understand what they are looking for, what their ideal future partner looks like, and the type of relationship they envision. We do this through a no-obligation initial interview, in person or by phone depending on your availability and / or location, to assess whether your process is feasible.
If so, at the beginning of your process, we will conduct a thorough interview through which we identify more than 100 key indicators: personal, professional and social, so that your Matchmaker can carry out a personalized search.
Because, as a Client, you will have your personal Matchmaker, who will be in charge of your entire process; from identifying and conducting all relevant interviews with your potential Candidates; presenting you their blind profile – Match Profile – with a high degree of detail; organizing the introduction; getting feedback to evaluate the result and taking the next step based on it.
The search for a partner is not a trivial subject so, before making a decision about how to do it in the most effective and safe way possible, it is necessary to be aware of the different options that you have, their pros and cons, in order to be able to make an informed and convinced decision, because as once Socrates said:
Only the knowledge that comes from within is true knowledge.
WHAT MATCHMAKING IS AND WHERE DOES IT COME FROM?
Matchmaking is a new business model with deep roots in the US and Northern Europe, where it has been proving its effectiveness for more than two decades, for those who are seriously looking for a stable partner and want to do so privately and confidentially. Therefore, it is not a Dating Website or a Marriage Agency.
It was brought to Spain in 2013 by Alcanda Matchmaking, which went further by developing its exclusive Head-hunting Sentimental© to satisfy a type of client with very particular needs. This method adapts the techniques commonly used in Executive Search (Head Hunting or Talent Hunting) to the European reality, very different from that of the US, to find the “right person” and thus be able to achieve a perfect match.
Therefore, Matchmaking is a service specially conceived for demanding, high-level people who value their time and privacy, and who have not lost the illusion of finding that special person to share their life but do not have the time or the desire necessary to look for it themselves.
WHY USE MATCHMAKING TO FIND A LIFE PARTNER?
In a world of online dating, reality shows and where the media has made relationships banal, meeting people is becoming easier, what is difficult is meeting the right person.
To this, we must add the new impediments to interact on a social level after the COVID-19 pandemic. This new situation has marked us on a professional level, but, above all, on a personal level since the harsh and prolonged confinements that we have suffered, have further favored the use of online media to make virtual connections, leaving personal interaction almost relegated to zero.
Matchmaking is a new way to unite two people with a higher probability of success as it is based on the real analysis of their personalities and life goals. This process is carried out, at the right time, in a face-to-face meeting, being the preferred method of many people who prefer personal treatment and knowledge to the detriment of the virtual one.
Matchmaking has been used in the United States for more than two decades, and is being implemented in more and more countries in Asia and Europe, being the preferred method of high calibre people which indicates its effectiveness.
WHAT MAKES ALCANDA MATCHMAKING UNIQUE?
It could be said that the main difference is that we are the pioneers and forerunners of Matchmaking in Spain and the only ones who truly apply the professional techniques of Head Hunters in the search for a life partner through our patented method Head-hunting Sentimental©.
However, and even if this is true, it is not what makes us unique. Our main value above all, and what differentiates us from the recent competition that emerged in Spain, is our HONESTY because, when someone is interested in hiring our services, and we determine that we cannot help them, for various reasons, we are sufficiently honest to put it bluntly, as well as the reason why, so that they don’t waste their money on an unprofitable investment but, above all, so as not to create false expectations.
As a consequence, at Alcanda Matchmaking we provide a very exclusive and highly personalized service where “face to face” and honesty is the norm. Our methodology guarantees that each process is unique and that it is tailor-made for the Client, since each person is different. We get to know all our Clients individually to discover their life experiences, future goals, interests, values, etc. And most importantly, their ambitions in terms of life as a couple are concerned to be able to find for them the person with whom they can build a solid relationship with a future.
WHAT ARE THE FEES AT ALCANDA MATCHMAKING?
How much would you be willing to pay to find the love of your lif?
This is the real question! Because, if you have dedicated a large part of your life to forging a professional future to reach a high socioeconomic level, why not investing now in something as important as your happiness and sentimental stability?
Like other important aspects of your life, you entrust them to professionals to save you time and, in the long run, money, you now have a professional and specialized service to help you achieve your personal goals with a small investment.
With us you will avoid wasting your valuable time in an unsuccessful search, without discounting the consequent emotional and, surely, economic exhaustion when having to attend dinners, events, trips, etc. with unsuitable people.
WHAT GUARANTEES DOES ALCANDA MATCHMAKING OFFER ME?
At Alcanda Matchmaking we sign with all our exclusive clients a contract made by Deloitte in which a series of guarantees and responsibilities are stipulated for both parties during the duration of the contract.
In addition, it includes the Search Profile of your ideal partner which is previously defined and accepted by Alcanda Matchmaking to guarantee that we will only present you with people who meet the requirements requested and agreed in the contract.
Our success rate of over 80% is the highest in the Spanish Matchmaking industry. 36% of clients find love on their first date. These extraordinary results are the fruit of a methodical search, through our patented Head-hunting Sentimental© Method through which we interview all Candidates several times, the last one face-to-face, before introducing him/her to the Client.
HOW DOES SENTIMENTAL HEAD-HUNTING METHOD© WORK?
Head-hunting Sentimental Method© works exactly like as in Executive Search companies since we hold several meetings with our Client, and later with the Candidates, but with a different objective; find the perfect combination of two people so that they can embark on a life project together, instead of filling a job vacancy.
Therefore, the process is based on a deep knowledge of our Clients and Candidates wishes, which is carried out mainly in person in an environment of absolute Respect, Honesty, Privacy and Confidentiality, our corporate values.
Once we have met with our Client and we have understood their wishes, requirements, life objectives, etc. we analize their profile, as well as that of their “ideal partner”, to let them know, with all honesty and in a private and confidentially manner if they are being realistic in the parameters requested about their future partner, but above all, if we can seriously help achieving their personal goals.
Only when we determine we can indeed do so, we design the “search profile” based on their needs and requirements and, once the Client approves it, the search begins through our network and contacts in different channels, following our Matchmaking Recruitment Process, as part of our pioneer and patented Head-hunting Sentimental Method©.
CAN I PUT THE CONTRACT ON STAND-BY?
During the term of the contract, it may be that the Client meets someone by other means and wants to explore that potential relationship, or simply something unforeseen, personal or professional, makes it impractical to meet someone new to begin a new relationship.
In these cases, and upon request, the Contract can be put on stand-by for as long as the Client needs, but without exceeding the entire time defined in his contract.
This stand-by period can be used at the sole discretion of the Client for any reason, and without any legal reason.
WHAT INFORMATION DO I RECEIVE FROM MY CANDIDATES BEFORE MEETING THEM?
As in any Executive Search process, after having selected the best Candidate to be introduced to the Client, before the introduction, the Client receives a “Match Profile” of the Candidate with verified information about the different aspects, both personal and professional, which will provide a lot of information to determine whether the Candidate is potentially a good Match.
The Match Profile contains several pages with the following Candidate information:
- Personality traits
- Physical features (with one or more photographs)
- Current marital and emotional availability status
- Level of studies, languages and current job
- Beliefs about marriage, religion and, if necessary, political inclination
- Hobbies and sports he/she practices
- Food preferences
- Drinker, smoker
- Have pets or if he/she is allergic to any animal
