All Dating Agencies Near Me

West Midlands County

The Elect Club dating service was originally formed in London, as long ago as 2005 by entrepreneurs Rosemary and Hayley Hill. Right from the start their aim was to make Elect an upmarket, sophisticated dating service that provided London professionals with the chance to meet each other through both a range of dating events and also a specialist personal matchmaking service that was extremely well respected and sought after by the London professionals that were their target audience.

Things have changed though over the 2 decades that we have operated and more recently, particularly in the years since the Covid pandemic, working patterns within London and other cities around the UK have altered and become more flexible, with many more people using technology to good advantage and working from home. Often just commuting into their office once or twice each week and sometimes even just monthly.

The effect has been that social interaction and meeting opportunities have become fewer and less frequent, so the need for our service to fill the gap and provide opportunities for single people to meet has increased dramatically.

So, there has been an opportunity to spread our wings and to bring our professional dating service to other cities and county locations all around the UK and we have particularly targeted the West Midlands, where our parent company is located, as it has one of the biggest populations around the UK.

Within the West Midlands we cover the following locations: Birmingham, Coventry, Wolverhampton, Solihull, West Bromwich, Sutton Coldfield,Walsall, Dudley, Halesowen, Stourbridge, Smethwick, Kingswinsford, Bloxwich, Willenhall, Tipton, Oldbury, Rowley Regis, Bilston, Brierley Hill, Sedgley, Wednesfield, Coseley, Darlaston, Brownhills, Wednesbury, Aldridge, Balsall Common and Blackheath.

How our West Midlands Dating Agency Works

It is often surprising to people when they find out that we don’t operate online or as a dating app, particularly if you’re under 45 and have grown up with online dating and more recently smartphone dating apps.

Ours is a confidential, discreet and highly personal service, there is nothing whatsoever online and only yourself, your personal matchmaker and hand selected potential dates will ever see your profile and photographs. There is never any information on a public website or dating app, so you can date discreetly and confidentially, knowing that friends, family, work colleagues or neighbours are never going to see your profile – it is just completely confidential between you and your personal matchmaker, around whom our service is built.

The other major differentiator is 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 of any kind 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, for all of our members. This can be incredibly reassuring when it’s a fact that online dating related crime (including smartphone dating apps), is one of the fastest growing crime categories in the UK, with fraud, scamming and violent crime running out of control currently and according to the BBC – more than 1 million fake dating profiles online in this country alone.

About our Personal Matchmaking Service

A huge number of people, particularly those under 45 are surprised that Personal Matchmaking is not anything new. Many people think that its something born out of dating shows on TV such as Married at First Sight, First Dates and Love Island when actually, it’s a fact that personal matchmaking was around long before online dating hit the UK, in the late 1990’s.

Dating Agencies have had a foothold in the UK since the very early years of the 18th century. The first dating agency having opened its doors in 1705 in London. So, we are pleased to say that traditional, face-to-face matchmaking has stood the test of time, because we believe it works so well and can often produce results that are more effective and credible, than you working alone at home, trawling through thousands of online profiles and still being unsure whether the person is real and safe to contact.
