Top 10 Best Sites
Looking for a dating site you can trust? Search no more.
The Short Version: When affluent singles in Orlando are ready to settle down, they often turn to Elisabeth Dabbelt at Elite Introductions and Matchmaking. She has more than 30 years of experience, and she listens to what clients are saying — and even what they aren’t saying — to help them focus on their search. Through personal, one-on-one coaching and matchmaking, Elisabeth teaches clients how to present their best selves and attract the partner of their dreams.
Swiping right can sometimes be an ineffective way to meet the love of your life. Skimming a profile and flipping through a couple of photos won’t tell you much, but on some dating apps and sites, that’s all you have to help you make a decision. While a misspelled word or a fuzzy selfie are good reasons for swiping left, how can you weed out the matches that may waste your time?
Singles today have no shortage of ways to find a date but are often at a loss in terms of finding long-term, compatible partners. If you’re a successful professional — with time often at a premium — you probably don’t want to spend it sifting through matches online.
That’s why these singles often hire a matchmaker to conduct a more thorough search for them. They meet with the matchmaker to discuss what they’re looking for and don’t need to think about it until they approve an introduction.
Affluent singles looking for love in Orlando, Florida, turn to Elite Introductions and Matchmaking for that white-glove experience. Founder Elisabeth Dabbelt has connected thousands of people and ensures each client receives high-quality, personalized services.
Not only does Elisabeth connect her Orlando clients, but she also coaches them to present their best selves, so they can hit it off right away with their date.
Elisabeth is more than just a driven entrepreneur, relationship coach, and professional matchmaker; she’s a student of the world. She speaks several languages and has a deep understanding of cultures, religions, and how people connect.
Those interests led her to start Elite Introductions and Matchmaking, a business through which she could bring people together. She has matched thousands of singles in the Orlando area through her passion and expertise over the last 30 years. Her successful company has even been recognized by both local and national media outlets.
Elisabeth works one-on-one with clients to guide them on their path to finding “The One.” She unearths the qualities that matter to her clients and carefully weighs aspects such as social and economic background, values, and interests. She also takes into consideration any wish lists her clients bring in. Matches are made according to compatibility in desires, personality, education, and lifestyle.
Clients also tend to have more in common from the start because Elisabeth works exclusively with financially and emotionally stable singles who are looking for like-minded partners.
Elisabeth also specializes in areas such as Jewish Matchmaking, Senior Dating, and helping widowers connect with someone after losing a partner. It all starts with balancing the dating scene by carefully screening potential mates, and clients approve all matches before an introduction.
For those seeking real, long-term relationships, Elisabeth’s matchmaking service is an effective way for busy professionals to meet partners instead of wasting valuable time with online dating.
Dating can seem like an endless round of interviews that, more often than not, result in you not getting the job. But with the right coaching, not only can you get hired, but you can also decide if the situation is right for you.
Elisabeth works with clients on presenting their best selves on dates, and you can sign up for a consultation with her here. For some clients, that can mean a wardrobe refresh or a new hairstyle. When it comes to clothes, choosing something that you’re comfortable and confident in wearing can make all the difference.
For other clients, the work goes a bit deeper. For those clients, Elisabeth starts by encouraging clients to take a positive approach to dating. No matter what their past baggage, she teaches clients to view dating as an exciting adventure.
She advises singles to avoid talking about past relationships. If the conversation veers into the negative aspects of a previous relationship, it can make the dater appear negative or disgruntled. And too much wistfulness about an old love can indicate you aren’t quite over them — and not ready to date someone new.
Elisabeth also tells clients to walk a fine line between being authentic and oversharing. Honesty is critical in any healthy relationship and being genuine on a first date is always a good idea. But sharing too much can be overwhelming for the other person and create anxiety related to measuring up to your expectations. You also want to save more information and stories for future dates. Provide information as though you were doling out tasty tidbits about yourself that will leave them craving more.
And be sure to show authentic interest in your date and ask about his or her life and interests, as well. Ask questions about their passions to create a sense of balance in the conversation and show that it is a two-way street.
If you’re looking for advice on the dos and don’ts of dating, visit Elisabeth’s blog for insights. That’s where she discusses everything from first dates to dating with kids.
One of the most informative posts is titled “Know What Your Date is Thinking.” It contains an infographic with data on how men and women think differently about simple things and how long it takes to make a first impression. The post also presents insightful statistics, including the fact that 71% of people still believe in love at first sight.

Another post, “For Women: Post-Divorce Dating Blunders,” is an actionable guide on how to return to the dating scene after many years away. It includes a few tips that may seem obvious, like not bringing up your ex, but others you may not have thought of, such as not discussing your career or money. She also advises women not to let a man lead them into a conversation that’s uncomfortable — she encourages them to speak up and move to another subject.
On her blog, Elisabeth gives straightforward advice about today’s dating world and provides strategies for dealing with relationship expectations and evolving yourself.
With Elite Introductions and Matchmaking bringing thousands of happy couples together in Orlando, Elisabeth has proven she knows what she’s doing. One client, Ashley, was thrilled with her results, saying: “I finally found someone who was listening to what I wanted in my soul mate. The results have been amazing. Elisabeth’s professional and caring approach made all the difference in the selectivity of my search process, now accomplished! Thank you, Elisabeth!”
Another client, a doctor named David, also had his life changed by receiving Elisabeth’s marketing mailer and calling her up. “I received a mailer from Elite. Little did I know how much this little mailer was going to impact my life and what was in store for me,” he said in an online testimonial. “I just didn’t know how important it was to hire someone as experienced and skilled as you to represent me in my search for happiness. With your direct coaching, I found my present wife and I have never been so happy.”
And that is just a sample of the love stories Elisabeth has helped author over her three decades as an elite matchmaker.
With a personal touch, an understanding of people, and so much experience in the industry, Elisabeth and her team at Elite Introductions and Matchmaking have the tools to help Orlando singles find their ideal mates.
