Catalyst Matchmaking

Helping you find a shared future

We believe finding a life partner is the most important decision you will ever make; one which affects everything about you, as well as your family and friends.

For all of life’s other big decisions, we freely seek advice to help us achieve the desired outcomes: we use an estate agent to help us buy our home; we use a travel agent to help us book our dream holiday; we used careers advisors at school to help us find our ideal job.

On the other hand, when it comes to finding love, we are expected to rely upon our intuition, the ambiguous notion of ‘fate’, or the well-intentioned advice of friends and family. So why don’t we enlist professional support to help us find a partner?

There are many benefits to using a matchmaker:

Support and guidance: We have clear heads. We’re not biased with other agendas or emotions; you are our agenda!

Singles network: We know a large number of single people who are free and open to meeting someone, and all of those people have their own networks too. As such, our database is growing all the time.

Feedback: Every time you meet someone through our service, we will get feedback from both parties. By conveying this feedback in a constructive way, we learn more about every client, and that helps us to provide better matches in future.

Continuity: Because you’ll be meeting a number of different matches, you don’t need to place too much importance on every meeting; there will always be another opportunity.

We cover Norfolk, Suffolk and Essex. We have matchmakers, photographers and stylists ready to work with you and report back to us.

To find out more about how we help you to find love, have a browse through our website; if you think we might be able to help, why not get in touch with us for a no-obligation chat?
