How It Works


Jump In.

If you’re ready to be proactive about your future, then go all in. Fill out the online application form and schedule a one-on-one meeting with Laurie to discuss what you’re looking for, what you’re not looking for, specific requirements and overall goals for your future. Laurie has an extensive database of Jewish singles spanning both Carolinas, Georgia and beyond; however, she is very selective when it comes to choosing her paying clients. It’s a big commitment—on your part and on hers. It’s important that the chemistry is right, that your goals are aligned, that you’re dedicated to the process and that you both feel you can be successful. Laurie accepts only a small number of clients at a time so that she can give each one the care and attention he or she deserves.



If this is the right fit for you, we will sit down with you to determine who you’re looking for, what your criteria is and how we can conduct that personalized search for you. Matchmaking services include date coaching, 1-hr consultation, database listing, and event invites.

Next, we study the profiles in our database, we run background checks on your potential matches and conduct interviews with them to determine the likelihood of sparks, chemistry and Happily Ever After.

Now for the fun part. We’ll arrange a day, time and venue for your first date—a place where you both can feel relaxed and at ease. We’ll spend time with you beforehand making sure you are confident and ready to put your best foot forward. Then, you simply show up—knowing that every detail has been arranged for you. After the date we’ll call each of you to find out how it went—what hit, what missed, and whether you’re interested in seeing each other again.
If it’s a match on both sides, then we step aside. It’s really that simple. And if you’re just not into them, it’s truly no big deal. There are no awkward excuses. No “It’s not you, it’s me” speeches. We handle everything in a personal and empathetic way. Then it’s on to the next match.


Date Coaching

It’s not just about finding the right person, it’s also about being ready for the right person. With a masters in social work, Laurie has helped thousands of singles overcome some of the roadblocks that get in the way of a healthy long-term relationship.

Through date coaching, we customize the conversation to what you may need to focus on, strengthen, or overcome. We can also help you learn the best places to find quality singles (and how to meet them once you get there!)

Date coaching can also cover how to make the best impression on a first date and how to avoid common dating mistakes. Laurie will review your internet dating profiles to make sure you’re putting your best face forward. (While we know it’s not for everyone, we understand the advantages of casting a wide net online, and we’re here to help.) Date coaching can also help you learn from your past mistakes, recognize red flags, and avoid the wrong relationships. Our team can also take you shopping and give you the style makeover that will boost your confidence and get you date-ready. Date coaching can even be used to help you learn to flirt comfortably and read your date’s body language.


1-hour Consultation

Laurie personally sits down with you to get to know you, but this is your hour. The consultation is customized to each client and is typically used to discuss a client’s biggest obstacles to dating. Many 1-hour consultations have led to client’s booking additional sessions because of the breakthroughs singles are able to realize in these conversations.

These consultations are also an opportunity for both you and Laurie to determine whether a matchmaking or coaching package is the appropriate next step in your journey.
