Hi! Kenneth and E. Jean here. We're absolutely thrilled you're joining us on our Tawkify adventure! You are the Tawkify demi-gods! The First! The Cool Ones! The Elite!
How does Tawkify work?
You answer ten questions, we personally match you. The most exciting, romantic, and sexy possibilities are pulled from our extensive high-quality pool of candidates, our network of partners, or events, dinners, and places where we'd most likely find your match. We screen everyone that we set up on a date with you. Afterwards, we do all the scheduling. We plan and curate the most exhilarating dates for you. Of course, we follow up with feedback from you and your date. We cross our fingers you fall in love! Many folks have fallen in love on their first date! If there's not that perfect fit, we work with you to iterate on the next match in good old start fashion. It's fun! Join us on this adventure.
What kind of dates am I set up on?
We typically set our clients up on a Mystery Dates or a Walkify. We want you out-and-about with your date! Not behind a computer or sitting down over dinner. With the Mystery Date, your matchmaker gives you instructions on where to go and what to do. It's like a spy movie! We try to find some of the most fun activities in the city that fits you and your date's personality. Think Museum, Trampolines, Scavenger Hunts, etc. With the Walkify, you are set up on a stroll. Remember, you look better when you're moving. And if you're short on time or a little shy, your matchmaker will first set you up on a Tawkify, where you meet over a phone for a short 10-15 minute phone call.
What happens after I purchase?
E. Jean, Kenneth, and our endearing User Experience Design Director, Shi Han, are off to find your personal matchmaker! We will be soaking up the details in your profile and coordinating with our team of matchmakers to find the absolute best dating sherpa to embark on this adventure with you.
NOTE: This takes between 3 and 6 days. We want to make sure this is a marvelous, romantic, and fun experience for you.
You will meet with your matchmaker in-person depending on your location (video-conference otherwise), and start the hunt for the love of your life! And unlike other matchmaking services, we guarantee you actual dates. Excited? So are we.
We take your privacy very
seriously. No one outside of Tawkify will see the questions you answer about yourself. We have several celebrated actors, journalists, CEOs, diplomats, millionaire/billionaires, etc. who trust us to keep their information private and work with us on what we can share with your date to make sure it's a success. You can read the legal mumbo jumbo here
In fact, our co-founder, Kenneth Shaw, didn't want to be caught dead on OkCupid / Match by his co-workers, managers, and classmates, so he created Tawkify to find himself a girlfriend!
Is there a contract?
Unlike other matchmaking firms, there is no year long contract. Our services are subscription-based and you can cancel anytime, simply from your dashboard. This is because we trust that if we're delivering value, you'll continue to work with us until you find the right person!
Because it's a subscription, how does Tawkify benefit to help me find matches quickly?
We are constantly striving to have an extremely high bar on quality. Our tech team and our matchmakers work closely together on processes and metrics to ensure we're consistently improving if not finding your perfect match right off the bat. Furthermore, we believe when you've met the one, you'll rave about your amazing experience on Tawkify with your friends and help us grow as a company and match more people!
Why should I try Tawkify?
We love asking our customers why they've decided to join Tawkify. Here are some of the most popular responses:
- They've tried every online dating site out there, and have completely burned out.
- They don't have time. They have very active lifestyles and exciting careers. When it comes to dating, they don't have time to look. Most folks have to either message or filter hundreds of messages on popular online dating sites to get to one or two dates - highly time consuming and low return on investment. (Time is the new currency.)
- The stories are hilarious. Unfortunately, it's no fun to show up for a dinner date with someone who looks completely different from their picture, has a different career, and is five inches shorter.
- The quality of people: We have the best looking, highest earning, and most engaging people. We also have a proven track-record of setting up our clients with equally awesome people.
- Last but not least, they all want honest feedback from their dates. There's nothing worst than just being left in the dark. Leave it to our matchmakers to find out everything they can for you!
How many people are in your database?
One of the nice things at Tawkify is that we don't believe your match should be contained within a specific database. That's not to say we don't already have a ton of people within our network. Our co-founder, E. Jean Carroll who's very well know for her Elle Magazine Column, has attracted many high quality folks onto Tawkify from celebrities, journalists, professors, etc. Furthermore, we have access to an extensive network through exciting partnerships. What we're trying to say is that we will look everywhere. For example, one of our matchmakers will go to a Lesbian club to find dates for a lesbian client or go to Ivy League Mixers for clients who are looking for someone that match their intellectual wit. We will work together on this journey!
How big is your team?
We are 15 people strong and growing! Meet our matchmakers here
How much experience do your matchmakers have?
After a rigorous interview process, each matchmaker goes through months of training with E. Jean Carroll, who has the longest, currently-running advice column in American publishing with over 7 million readers at Elle Magazine.
How often will I be in contact with my matchmaker?
Matchmakers will be constantly in touch at least once or twice a week.
How do I get the most out of my experience?
Keep an open mind. We'll be introducing you to new people with each and every date. Then, it's up to mother nature whether or not you click. We guarantee you will have a great experience. The funny thing about attraction is that we can't will it to appear. But we can set ourselves up to take full advantage, when the right person finally stumbles into our lives.
How can I invite others?
You can invite others to join using the invite link at the top of your dashboard when you sign in. Or you can purchase a gift here
How old is your company?
We've been around since 2012. And already, our customers are planning weddings!
What happens when I go on vacation?
Our matchmakers will continue juggling the possibilities for you as long as your subscription is active. Up to 1 rollover match will be honored. When you're back, your dates will be lined up and planned out. You just have to show up with a smile!
Can I cancel a date?
Could there be anything more important than finding your other half? We know things come up. However, please let us know at least 2 days in advance, otherwise it will count as a match. Remember... your date also has a busy schedule and is looking forward to meeting you.
What happens if I like and want to continue seeing the person my matchmaker set me up with in the middle of my subscription?
We will continue to work diligently towards filling the rest of your subscription.
Tell me about refunds.
If you are not satisfied within 5 days of talking to your matchmaker, we will refund your first purchase. Renewals will only be refundable within 24 hours of payment.
Can I change my matchmaker?
Please send your request to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will get in touch and arrange a transition for your next subscription cycle.
Who is Mr. Brooks?
He's our automated dating butler. He gets along very well with all the matchmakers and loves to send you little reminders to make sure you're ready for your date!
Do You Have Any Tips for Holding a Good Conversation?
Why, yes, we do! Talk about what you can't help talking about! Talk about your obsessions—and you will be at your most engaging. Are you obsessed with the Lakers? Talk about the Lakers. Don't turn this thrilling, spirited, mysterious conversation into a dim-witted résumé. You are NOT interviewing one another for a job. So....please... no dumb-cluck dating histories, no dim-witted dating site quizzes (no questions about age, smoking, pets, religion, height, weight, income, etc.) and refrain from asking to "exchange photos." You are on the phone to get to know the person.
