It's wonderful to hear what is happening across the globe to blend the online and offline services.

At myParnterPerfect we began as an exclusive Private Matchmaking service, not an online dating site. Through the dramatic increase of active profiles in our database being considered potential matches for our private clients, we uncovered the need for a comprehensive online gay dating service. Our approach to integrate the offline with the online is to scale our dynamic private matchmaking services (which start out at an affordable $2995 and include a customized search, one-on-one consultations, introduction follow-ups and relationship coaching) to a model that is selectable by our users to meet their needs and budget. We also give all of our Private Clients a lifetime premium membership to our Online Dating services, creating a natural relationship between the two.

In addition to free services for all online users, we also have premium memberships as low as $16.95 a month. All premium members receive our guided communication tools, our dynamic browsing features, guaranteed matches based on our Partner Perfect Compatibility matching system, and much more. We took our comprehensive matching approach for our private clients and automated it for a much larger online user population.

To address the gap between the private matchmaking and online dating service levels, we have introduced three additional "cross-over" services. These cross-over services allow our online users to have an introduction to personalized matchmaking at a fraction of the cost. One way to introduce these types of services is to require an online premium membership, as we do, in order to take advantage of these select service levels.
