1. Meet your matchmaker
Should you consider becoming a member at Date for 2, we will gladly have a noncommittal introduction interview. During this interview we explain you who we are and what our method is. In addition, you describe in short your background and what you expect from the collaboration. Based on a first assessment we will do a viability analysis. It is not a guarantee but an indication so you can judge whether we are the right “partner in business” for you.
Should both you and we have confidence in a successful mediation, the next step is the intake. The intake consists of a depth interview (which gives us insight into your world, standards and values, matching criteria) and a personality test (to give insight into your view of humanity, as into your character). We build up a profile carefully on the basis of the conversation and the result of the test. Our Consultants make comprehensive personal descriptions which allow them to make qualitatively good matches.
The matching process begins after the intake. Our consultants will start searching “a like-minded” based on the personality profile. In case of a good compatibility, the introduction follows. A (extensive) personal description is proposed and the Consultant explains why there is a match, according to him/her. When you both agree to meet the written (contact-) information is exchanged. Then the tense moment comes - you are going to meet. In the best case scenario, after that the status of your registration changes to “non-active” or we continue the search and of course consider your feedback on that.
The availability within the membership determines how long it takes before getting an introduction. On average it takes four weeks (from intake) before members have their first introduction.
4. Coaching & support
Why? This service to our members is designed to make you feel good about dating. Even when it has been a while for you. After all, dating should be fun! How? You make an appointment with your Consultant and you take a closer look together at your dilemma. What is hampering you? What is it that you find exciting or scary? What are you afraid of and how realistic is that thought? Of course you can also address them for general dating tips and advice.
Date for 2 is affiliated with the BVSK, the Branchevereniging Singles Keurmerk (Branchunion Singles Label). The BVSK applies stringent conditions to the approved dating services through the Keurmerk Relatiebemiddeling (Label Matchmaking) and strictly supervises its fulfilment. The conditions the BVSK imposed are amongst others related to: privacy, the agreed contract, the expertise of the employees and the information provided by the services.
Of course we do not presume it, but should it nonetheless happen that you are unsatisfied about the delivered services then you can, through a guarantee fund, address the national Arbitration Committee. You can also address an independent mediator of the BVSK. Good to know that there has never been a case reported to the Arbitration Committee by a client of Date for 2.

sinds 2017 owner Date for 2 and Personal Matchmaker
I met my current partner early 2016 at an event organised by Date for 2.
We met each other a couple of times there and when I returned to the Netherlands after a month of trekking in the Himalayas, we had our first date. And now we have been happily together for more than four years. It is the most wonderful relationship experience I have had. When Date for 2 was looking for a new colleague, my interest has aroused quickly. Through my personal experience with Date for 2 I was quickly convinced that the approach works and I would like to help other people find the same happiness.
During my studies I was broadly educated from psychology to maths. I have expanded this knowledge further during my career and learnt to apply it to different situations. Communication with very diverse stakeholders: customers, technical developers and management but also analysis of complex data and problems. I have learnt to see the connection between events, subjects and figures. What is more important, I have learnt how different people think, react, act and interact. It is not mathematics but the combination of people skills and our structured approach that can help to find the path to the perfect match. We let people discover themselves what they really want. The answer can be unexpected but from experience I know: It works!
