All Dating Agencies Near Me

Greater Manchester

Elect Club was originally formed in London, way back in 2005 by Rosemary and Hayley Hill. It was an upmarket, sophisticated dating service that gave London professionals the chance to meet each other through high quality dating events and a specialist personal matchmaking service that was extremely well respected and sought after, throughout the capital.

In recent years however and particularly in the years since the Covid pandemic, working patterns within London and other cities around the UK have changed, with many more people working from home and commuting into their office once or twice each week and sometimes less frequently than that.

Social and meeting opportunities have therefore become fewer and the need for our service has increased considerably. So, there has been an opportunity to spread our wings somewhat and to bring our professional dating service to other cities and county locations all around the UK and the great news is that Greater Manchester is now one of them. Including all 10 of the Boroughs that make up the county, Bolton, Bury, Oldham, Rochdale, Stockport, Tameside, Trafford, Wigan and the cities of Manchester and Salford.

How our Manchester Dating Agency Works

When they first discover Elect Club, it often surprises people that our service is not online or anything to do with a smartphone app – it is vastly different and more personal than that. Both meeting online and via smartphone apps have become the norm over the last 2 decades or so but we are pleased to say that our dating service is built around the expertise of our matchmaking team.

One of our team is usually nominated as a dedicated matchmaker for each client and we then work with that person to initially build your dating profile, choose your photographs or provide a free photoshoot if you come into our office and then frequently search our database on your behalf, for matches that we feel you are likely to be compatible with and that can work for you. With your matchmaker taking feedback after each date.

We are proud to say that all of our client base has been personally interviewed by one of our membership advisers or usually a matchmaker prior to joining, we then carefully check out our potential members to ensure that they are totally genuine, don’t have an existing partner, have not been involved in crime and are solvent. We can then match them with complete confidence and take away a lot of the stress associated with dating in the 21st century.

About our Personal Matchmaking Service

Many people, particularly those under 45 are surprised that Personal Matchmaking is not anything new. It’s a fact that personal matchmaking was around long before online dating hit the UK, in the late 1990’s and is in fact older than the UK itself, with the first London Dating Agency (called a matrimonial agency in those days, having opened its doors 2 years before the union between the 4 home nations was established in 1707. So, traditional, face-to-face matchmaking has stood the test of time, we believe because it works so well and can usually produce results that are more credible and effective, than you trawling through thousands of online profiles on your own at home or superficially swiping left or right on a nondescript dating app on your smartphone.

In recent years, because of press criticism about online dating and dating apps thousands of people have flocked back to traditional, face to face agencies such as Elect Club. This is often because they want to buy in to the experience and skill of their matchmaker and to feel properly supported and guided during their search for a partner. They also want the increased confidentiality and discretion of not having a profile on a very public and easily accessed website or app. Which can be worth its weight in gold if you’re in a high-profile profession or climbing the career ladder – as with us nothing is ever on any sort of public website or dating app.

So, would you like to know more? Well, our team of friendly, knowledgable membership advisers are on hand to help and are happy to tell you how we operate and how you could benefit from membership. So please do ring us to discuss things confidentially or complete our contact form and we’ll get back to you – there is never any obligation or compulsion to join. We are usually available from 9am until 9pm Monday to Friday, plus the weekends and many bank holidays. We’d love to hear from you and to get you dating in what we believe is the right way.
