The Short Version: For the last decade, Diolli Matchmaking has brought together Eastern European beauties and successful gentlemen from around the globe. With its devoted crew of “cupids,” the service organizes networking conferences for ladies, provides advice through a blog, and offers fun-filled offline dating opportunities. Diolli specializes in finding meaningful connections for people willing to travel for love. Both men and women turn to Diolli for finding romance internationally, and the matchmaking service has more than 100 marriages to its credit.
It’s always heartwarming to hear about people who marry their high school sweethearts, but most of us don’t find lasting love with someone whom we attended classes with.
I never had a love connection with anyone in high school, and the boyfriends I met in my hometown are now distant memories. Today, I find myself interested in men from different countries: The tall, handsome, and kind Spanish man who runs his own company and travels through Asia to meet clients; the dark-eyed Turkish pilot who stops at hubs in Europe and Africa; and the Korean DJ who mixes dreamy ambient electric beats through a dizzying jumble of cables.
All these men had stories and experiences that were unlike my own. Their fascinating histories and charm made me want to learn more on a second or third date. It felt like there was so much to learn from someone with a different background — and a different culture. I had the chance to meet these international hunks because I constantly travel, but, for so many men whose successful careers keep them busy, frequent flights and international dates aren’t feasible.
Diolli Matchmaking Agency caters exclusively to those successful professionals looking for love on a global scale. The agency’s matchmakers are famous for connecting men from around the world with women living in Eastern Europe. Many of these smart, cosmopolitan beauties are looking for love, and they’re anything but mail-order brides, said Svetlana Mukha, Diolli Founder and Leading Matchmaker.
“Singles who choose international dating strongly believe that love knows no borders, language barriers, or cultural differences. The whole idea that you have to cross the ocean to meet your soul mate is incredibly romantic, so the majority of Diolli clients want to experience the adventure of their lives and fill their relationships with real romance,” she said.
Diolli Matchmaking Agency, founded in 2008, prioritizes real love while eliminating the swiping and high-pressure speed dating. The group is a member of many of the top dating associations: Matchmakers Alliance, the Matchmaking Institute, the International Dating Coach Association, and the International Alliance for Honest Dating Sites.
The site has the highest standards for quality, privacy, efficiency, and a proven track record of connecting men with Ukrainian ladies.
“We provide traditional matchmaking services and Diolli is an offline dating service. We introduce our clients the old-fashioned way — on a face-to-face date,” Svetlana said. “No swiping right or left, no endless chatting online, and no pointless correspondence. We strongly believe that our clients have the right to choose among the best, so we are very picky about accepting new members.”
Diolli’s tagline is: “Where you invest your love, you invest your life.” So it’s no wonder that men are willing to travel around the world to find a woman who is ready to be treated like a princess by her prince.
What sets Diolli apart is the company’s clientele. Male clients hail from locations all over the world — from the US to China and nearly every country in between.
The average age of a man on Diolli is 32 — which is 10 years younger than it was just five years ago. That statistic follows the trend of young, thriving entrepreneurs who have found professional success, but simply can’t connect to the everyday women in their own countries.
Because of its highly personalized services, the Diolli team has an impressive 80% success rate in finding compatible matches.
“We help fulfill the needs of men from different countries and in different age groups. All of our male clients are real gentlemen and quite successful in their professional lives, but they miss the romance and having a special someone by their side,” Svetlana said. “They also value both privacy and their time. They want to meet sophisticated, beautiful, well-educated Slavic women with traditional family values.”
Men checking out the Diolli website may wonder if they can date one of the team’s beautiful matchmakers, also known as cupids. The women who make the matches and organize events are all well-educated, with Master’s degrees, speak numerous languages — and are also super-sexy.
“While speaking at the Matchmaking Institute conference, I proudly showed photos of the Diolli team of cupids, and someone in the audience joked that I scout them at modeling agencies,” Svetlana said. “They are the face of Diolli, and they send our male clients a strong message: Beautiful, sophisticated, intelligent ladies know other beautiful, sophisticated, intelligent ladies and can introduce you to them.”
They’re all passionate and dedicated to helping men find love in Eastern Europe. Even the personal driver at the agency — who’s in his 60s — tells friends that his mission is spreading love and creating couples, Svetlana said.
“Every member of the Diolli team understands the importance of his or her personal contribution to the successful matchmaking experience of our clients,” she said.
The Diolli team of cupids also plans many events in low-pressure settings to benefit both men and women. One series of events for Ukrainian women is called Kablooks. Approximately 300 ladies attend Kablooks events, which feature a handful of speakers ranging from psychologists focusing on healthy relationships to lawyers specializing in prenuptial agreements to self-made millionaires — one of which happens to be a 21-year-old woman.
“Ladies have to wear high heels to attend, and each event has a unique dress code. The last one was black and white,” Svetlana said. “Usually we recruit a lot of ladies to join Diolli during such events. We love recruiting offline.”
Another new feature the site is rolling out this year is an educational platform called Cupid on Duty. It consists of blogs for dating and relationship advice in Russian and English. It is designed for men, women, singles, and international couples. Plus, there’s another blog featuring the cupids, psychologists, and dating coaches in Russian-speaking countries who share tips and experiences.
“We have 10 years of professional matchmaking experience that we are ready to share. We love our clients dearly, and we believe they deserve the best service,” Svetlana said. “We also hope that it will inspire singles to learn from dating coaches, psychologists, and matchmakers.”
