Frequently Asked Questions

How have Igbo Introductions' services changed?

  1. We realised from experience and feedback that there was a greater demand for a more personalised and discrete service that aligned more closely with Igbo heritage. Whereas before, our services were mainly based online, we are focusing more on building stronger relationships with our clients through regular contact and consultations. We are now running an offline matchmaking service.
  2. We have seperated our memberships into two tiers. Basic (free) and premium (paid). Premium memberships benefit from matchmaker support and a guarentee of five dates. Basic memberships do not offer matchmaker support but benefit from the opportunity (although not guaranteed) of being matched to a premium member.
  3. In addition, matchmakers will now take on the task of searching for matches for you so you don't have to. For those hiring matchmakers, it is now less about leaving the prospect of finding matches to chance, and more about us working for and with our clients to find 'the one'.

What's the difference between 'Hiring a Matchmaker' (PREMIUM membership) and 'Joining the Register' (BASIC membership)?

  • 'Hiring a Matchmaker' (PREMIUM membership): Premium members will have a dedicated personal matchmaker who will actively search to find matches based on their  preferences. This is suitable for people who are ready to find 'the one' through an intensive search process by a matchmaker.
  • 'Joining the register' (BASIC membership): Basic members will not have a personal matchmaker assigned to them however they may be contacted if a matchmaker deems them suitable for one of their clients. There is no guarantee that a Basic Member will be contacted. This is suitable for people not yet ready to hire a matchmaker but are interested in dating people they would not have otherwise met.

What is the difference between Premium membership and Premium PLUS?

  • All premium packages have the benefit of one-to-one matchmaker support with guaranteed dates
  • Premium membership guarantees 2 dates
  • Premium PLUS membership guarantees 5 dates

What benefits are included in the BASIC membership?

  • The 'Register' (BASIC membership) is a good option for those who are not yet ready for an intensive search process with a Matchmaker, but are interested in meeting new people.   
  • Basic members still benefit from a free consultation.
  • Basic members may be contacted by a matchmaker to organise a date with their client if their offline profile is of interest to a premium member.
  • There is no guarantee that basic members will be contacted for a date and there is no matchmaker support 

Why would I opt to 'Hire a Matchmaker?' (PREMIUM membership)

  • Premium members will have a dedicated personal matchmaker who will actively search to find matches based on their  preferences.  This package guarantees an intensive search for 'the one' and 2 (Premium) or  5 (Premium Plus) dates organised by Igbo Introductions.

How many members do you have?

  • The number of members in our register is not limiting to your prospects of finding a match. This is because, in addition to matching you with members of our 'Register' (Premium members only), we actively conduct searches within the wider Igbo community to find you what you are looking for.
  • Remember, if there are 100 people in our pool, not all 100 people will be an appropriate match for you. We want to reduce the number of wasted dates and correspondences you encounter by tailoring matches to your wants and needs.

How many matches will I be given?

  • Premium members are guarenteed 2 (Premium) or 5 (Premium PLUS) dates as part of the premium package. During client-matchmaker consultations, the matchmaker will usually discuss 1-2 of these matches with a client at a time.
  • We suggest clients date one match at a time. We suggest this in order to allow clients to get to know someone as well as possible before moving on should they wish.

How are profiles generated?

  •  Our offline, bespoke profiles are generated when you fill out your pre-consultation form (this is the form you fill out before your first FREE consultation). Questions include your basic details, profession, hobbies and much more. We also include a photo of you. When we speak to you during your first consultation, we will add more to your profile so it is as full, detailed and attractive to potential matches as possible. 
  • Your profile will remain OFFline and will only be shown to Matchmakers and potential matches that we feel will be appropriate for you to pursue a date with.

Will my profile be visible online?

  • No, all profiles will be offline. We are offering a discrete and bespoke service to bring people who would not have otherwise me, via our services. Your profile will be shown to potential matches who we feel suit your preferences.. 

How do facilitated dates work?

  • We will organise your date based on location, budget and availability of each party. This may be at a coffee shop, restaurant or similar neutral environment. If it is not possible for this meeting to occur in person, then we will facilitate this over video call.

Are there opportunities to find matches outside of my country of residence?

  • We will facilitate digital dates if this is the case i.e. via video calls. Luckily we are in an era where technology allows us to communicate freely and so we encourage widening your search if there are potential matches that fit your criteria outside of your country of residence. 

What if I don't like the match/s my matchmaker has found for me?

You have the authority to decline or accept dates with the match/s we find you. If you do not like the match, we will keep looking until you have had 2 (Premium) or 5 (Premium PLUS) dates. Hiring a matchmaker is about the matchmaker working with you to tailor their services to your needs.

If I want to pursue a match, will my membership be held?

  • If you meet someone and you wish to continue seeing them, we will put your membership on hold until you inform us of the next step.
  • If you decide to come back, we will give you the remaining matches in your package.
