The Short Version: If you’re a South African professional seeking a long-term, satisfying relationship, Perfect Partners can put you on the path to love with its bespoke approach to matchmaking. The agency’s CEO, Shannon Davidoff, and her team take the stress out of the dating process and make finding a connection the fun experience it should be. Through a selective vetting process and a unique blend of corporate recruitment and high-touch matchmaking, Perfect Partners has a proven track record of helping thousands of singles discover their mates.

Successful professionals seem to have it all: intelligence, ambition, reliability, stability — the list goes on. Surely, such characteristics make these individuals a catch in most anyone’s book.

But many busy professionals are finding the dating world a difficult place to navigate. Jam-packed schedules and high standards leave many singles barely keeping their heads above water in the search for a partner with a similar lifestyle and value set. Fortunately, Perfect Partners provides a solution for elite South Africans.

Expert matchmaker and CEO Shannon Davidoff started Perfect Partners to give successful singles the guidance and tools necessary to succeed in their quest for lasting relationships. Once an ambitious professional looking for love herself, she understands the unique needs of the clients she serves.

As a result, Shannon has developed a one-of-a-kind approach to matchmaking that marries corporate recruitment techniques with proven personalized matchmaking methodologies. At Perfect Partners, it’s all about connecting highly compatible individuals and giving them the tools and strategies to build flourishing bonds.

Many Perfect Partners members are high-achieving professionals who just aren’t finding the person they want to spend their life with. Online dating can sometimes be exhausting, overwhelming, and time-consuming — especially when a demanding career is thrown in the mix. Shannon understands this, which is why she’s devised an approach that caters to her busy clientele.

Shannon has been making successful matches for more than a decade. At Perfect Partners, she’s refined the process of finding her clients an ideal match by establishing a strong, trusting connection with them. Her approach is working, too. To date, Perfect Partners boasts an impressive 73% success rate in connecting clients with partners.

The high success rate at Perfect Partners is due to the team’s hands-on approach to matchmaking.

This high level of success is due, in large part, to Shannon’s commitment to discerning what her clients’ true needs and goals are and giving them feedback on how to fulfill them. And, sometimes, this means dishing out a bit of constructive criticism and tough love.

For Shannon, the first step is getting her clients ready for a serious relationship by taking the time to have the important conversations that could change their lives.

Once Shannon and her team have found a suitable prospect, clients are discreetly introduced to that person in a face-to-face meeting in a neutral location. To provide a safe experience, Perfect Partners keeps all client information offline. Shannon and her team believe that old-world communication and human interaction is the best indicator of compatibility.

Perfect Partners walks clients through the entire matchmaking journey. The team is readily available to chat and always approaches clients with warmth and caring.

The First Step: Create a Custom Profile to Showcase Your Personality

Getting started with Perfect Partners is simple. The process begins by taking personal inventory and filling out the agency’s Next Step questionnaire. The list of 16 questions represents a sample of what you will need to communicate to your matchmaker.

The questionnaire focuses on some areas people don’t commonly talk about, including those that zero in on intimacy issues and how well you express yourself. Once this stage of the process is complete, you’ll move to profile creation.

The agency’s Next Step questionnaire gets to the heart of what clients are looking for in a mate.

All of the basic data is included in a profile, including contact information, name, vital statistics, profession, and education level. In the “More About Me” section, you will do a deeper dive into your favorite things and interests such as sports, pets, personality information, and habits. To round the profile out, there is a fill-in section that encourages you to talk about your perfect partner.

Once you’ve completed your profile and submitted it, you’ll be assigned a personal consultant who will arrange your obligation-free interview. After that, you decide if you want to move forward with matchmaking. It’s a small initial time commitment, and, with the no-obligation interview, you’ve got nothing to lose but lonely nights.

Learn How to Devise a Winning Strategy with Hands-on Coaching

Coaching is a great way to ensure that you are not only putting your best foot forward, but you are also continuing to develop relationships in a positive and healthy way. If you can’t make it past the first date, it’s unlikely you’ll find your special someone.

Shannon believes that if a person is willing to put in the work, he or she will succeed in finding a lasting relationship. And, part of that work involves thinking outside the box and drawing from different perspectives by seeking the advice of an expert. Shannon and the team at Perfect Partners are determined to coach their clients on how to implement strategies that can impact real change in their lives and the way they approach the game of love.

As a coach, Shannon gets clients to shed bad habits and develop dating strategies that work.

Coaching helps you figure out what isn’t working or what baggage you may be holding onto that’s getting in the way of finding a lasting relationship. Your coach is a fresh pair of eyes that can help you identify areas where you are repeating dating and relationship patterns, and then give you strategies to get out of it.

Coaching is the perfect complement to matchmaking and helps build long-lasting, healthy relationships. And, from the initial entry interview to the first date and beyond, the Perfect Partners team champions for clients every step of the way.

Perfect Partners Clients Who’ve Discovered Their Happily Ever After

The high success rate speaks volumes about how effective Perfect Partners is in coupling its clients. But the real proof in the matchmaking pudding comes straight from the mouths of clients whom Shannon and her team have helped.

“You sent me the profile of a lady I thought only existed in fairy tales,” Perfect Partners client JH wrote to Shannon. “I met with her and life has a new meaning. Thanks to you I found a princess. Your professional matchmaking is superb and thanks for all the continuous care and patience.”

Another client, GB, also thanked Shannon and her team for helping her and her spouse celebrate six years of marriage.

“We’ve been happily married ever since 2011, and we are very content and very much still in love,” she wrote. “I remember how nervous and scared I was, but thanks to your excellent professional matchmaking and guidance, it was so easy and natural. We are such a perfect match! It felt like you introduced me to one of your friends.”

Shannon said she prides herself on being a friend to her clients; in fact, it’s the backbone of her philosophy. So, if you’re a busy professional in South Africa having trouble navigating the dating scene, give Perfect Partners a ring. Shannon and company will be glad to put you on the path to success.
