“Intro is an internet dating site – in fact it’s the opposite,” she says.“We meet all of our clients face-to-face, we complete a detailed profile for them and, on that basis, we arrange suitable matches, going so far as to actually arrange the dates rather than passing along personal information such as phone numbers.” The main difference between matchmaking agencies and online dating sites, according to Maycock, is that the agencies accept only those who are actually available and looking for a relationship.“Many of the guys who come to us are sick of being rejected in bars after building up the nerve to chat to a girl. And women want somebody with pure motives, not to discover six months down the line that the man of their dreams is actually married with three kids or is not interested in settling down,” she says.

With a background in counselling and psychotherapy, Haskins is aware that many people looking to meet a new partner following a relationship or marriage breakup or the death of a partner may not be emotionally ready.“It can take a lot of courage and the social rejection can be cruel at times.If somebody gets rejected again and again, it can really affect their confidence and sense of self worth,” she says.Old-fashioned matchmaking agencies such as Intro, Two’s Company, Top Match, Singlelista and the Cork-based Two Hearts Meet have all spotted the opportunity to provide introduction services to people who are either fed up or too busy to keep trying.
