So you’ve made it a goal to meet that special someone. Congratulations – by making that first call to Spark Of Love, you’re on a path that could see you broaden your social life, meet likeminded people, and, of course, that special someone.
But we know from our experience over many years in the London dating agency world, that coming in for that first meeting with an introduction agency can be daunting – sometimes more so than the first date that will follow soon after.
We work hard to make that meeting as comfortable and natural for you as possible. And so to put your mind at rest, we’ve put together a few pointers for what to expect from your appointment.
We’ll meet you in a relaxed, informal setting
When you come to our building, you will be met by one of our team. We don’t want you thinking you’re on a job interview, so with that in mind, we will either use one of our informal lounges or go to one of Richmond, London’s discreet coffee shops; our aim is to relax and make you as comfortable as possible. We want to have a chat so that we can find out about you and what makes you tick, and we think meeting us in the sort of setting where you might meet your friends or relatives will best enable that. You don’t have to worry about prying eyes or ears – we’ll find a quiet spot for our chat, so you can relax knowing you’re talking to us in confidence.
Remember, we’re not interviewing you – there’s nothing to prepare!
While there are some questions we’ll ask you, they’ll very much be a natural part of our chat. We’re not interviewing you for a job and there are no right or wrong answers. We seldom take notes and we won’t grill you on every aspect of your life or dating history. We want to find out who you are, what you enjoy doing and the types of people you best get on with, and we think the way to get that is through a conversation rather than a long list of questions. So, there’s no need to prepare anything for your introductory session, though of course if it helps your nerves to make a few notes about anything important you want to tell us, please do.
You’ll be meeting us one on one
In most cases your introductory session will be with Christine Trigg, the founder of London dating agency, Spark Of Love. Christine is a natural people person who is quickly able to put others at their ease and loves to chat! She has met thousands of past customers across the traditional dating and disabled dating divisions of our family business, and comes to every first chat with no pre-judgements. Through the conversation, Christine will begin to form a picture of your likes and dislikes, your sense of humour, and what sort of people you’re looking to meet; all vital information we’ll take away to start making great introductions.
You’ll be shown profiles of potential matches for your selection
Unlike online dating websites, we don’t turn you into a profile for others to browse at their leisure. We offer a bespoke service, and the information we glean from our chat will be turned into a profile, which will be approved by you and only shown to members of Flame. At the end of your introduction session with one of our consultants, we may have some ideas for potential dates and will promote you to any members you are interested in meeting.
We hope this has given you a good insight into what to expect from your introductory session. If there’s anything we haven’t covered, please do get in touch with us on [email protected].
