Who is a Chai Expectations member? What age range do you work with?
Our membership includes Jewish singles of all ages from across the country. Our clients are successful, interesting, well-educated people with busy, active lives. Faced with the host of options available-online Jewish personals, executive dating services, the “bar scene” or Jewish dating agencies, to name a few-they’ve chosen Chai Expectations’ friendly, personalized Jewish matchmaking services to help them find “The One.” Though our clients’ ages range from 22 to 80, they share the same core values, loyalty to their heritage and desire for a love that lasts a lifetime.
Do your clients share my religious practices?
We have members across the broad spectrum of Judaism. There is great diversity of observance within our faith and, thus, within our network
How many dates do I receive for my membership fee? How long does my membership last?
There is no magic number here. Memberships are one year in length and Laurie will continue to introduce you to quality, marriage-minded Jewish singles throughout the year until you meet the right one.
Where do most of your clients live?
The majority reside in the Southeast but we have members as far away as New York, California and Chicago. We also have members living across the United States. We believe geography is of little importance as long as at least one party is willing to relocate for the right relationship. Naturally, Laurie would never introduce two people who are unwilling to relocate or date long distance. All preferences are noted and reflected in the personalized matches that Laurie makes for her clients.
Is my privacy ensured?
Please rest assured that we are always, always discreet. Your personal information will never be shared without your consent. Every interaction between you and Chai Expectations is held in the strictest of confidence.
Do you do background checks?
Let’s face it. Safety is a priority. Matchmaking clients and the matches are required to undergo a thorough background check.
Who are your clients?
Our clients are attractive, educated and successful, with great jobs, great friends and full lives. They simply haven’t connected with the right person yet. Most importantly, they’re ready for commitment and have invested in finding personal fulfillment by joining Chai Expectations.
Who arranges the date?
We do! Chai Expectations offers concierge-level services, meaning we take care of every detail. We’ll call both parties and coordinate a time, date, and venue. All you have to do is show up.
What if I meet someone I want to focus on for a while? May I take a hiatus without canceling my membership?
We have various freeze options available to our clients depending on what program they selected. All of this can be discussed in-depth. Our goal is for you to find love.
Why would someone like me choose to hire a matchmaker?
- You’ve exhausted all the typical avenues—blind dates, the bar scene, internet dating, etc.
- Most of your friends are married and you feel you’ve met all the single people in your basic network.
- You are big on privacy and don’t want to post your photo online.
- You are too busy with your career or children to spend time searching for dates and want someone to do the screening on your behalf.
- You continually find yourself choosing the wrong type of person.
I’m not sure I’m making a good impression on dates. Do you provide date coaching or image consulting?
Yes, we do. Your success is our priority, and we will happily advise you to ensure you are confident in all aspects of your dating adventures.
