Frequently Asked Questions
1. “How do I get started, and what is the first step?”
Fill out an inquiry on the contact page, and we'll get back to you in 24 hours. After a phone conversation or email with Bela, you will be sent a questionnaire to fill out so that we can get to know you and your situation very well. This questionnaire will form the basis of our first in person strategy session - where we will customize a package to best fit your needs.
2. “Who are your clients?”
Our clients are busy, successful attractive men and women - who are motivated to find a partner, and ready to take control of their dating lives. They range in age from their 20's to 70's - and are of all ethnicities and religions. Smart Dating specializes in singles at any phase of their search - never had a relationship, never married, divorced, or widowed. Our clients are career professionals, such as doctors, lawyers, bankers, medical professionals, consultants, and entrepreneurs. They live anywhere in the US or Canada
3. “Is this confidential?”
Yes, your affiliation with Smart Dating is 100% confidential. We take this very seriously, as do our clients.
4. “I don’t think I need to learn how to date better—I think I just need a matchmaker to introduce me to better people”
The goal of Smart Dating is to transform our clients into better daters - always keeping the ball in their court. Some of our clients report going on countless “first dates” through matchmaking or dating services, but rarely making it to the second date. After our program, they have gone on to win second, third, fourth dates and enter into long-term relationships.
5. “Will it be obvious that my profile has been written by a professional? And are the photos "glam shots?"
Your photos are taken in one of the best studios in Chicago - where they truly understand the needs of online daters - to look your personal best, but real - in real settings. No "come hither" glam shots here - just you looking as good as you would on a first date - in real urban settings - rooftops, brick walls, in parks. Online dating success largely depends on your profile and photos and they should be top notch.
6. “What is the right age to being Smart Dating? I’m only 30—I think I have plenty of time”
The tough reality is that today's dating world is more complicated than ever due to online dating & social networking becoming intertwined with classic ways of meeting people (singles events, bars, coffee shops, etc). People feel that they have infinite "choices" and are looking to screen dates out, rather than screen them in. It is never too early to take control of your dating life, so that when you meet that interesting person, you maximize your chances of making it work. It is never too early to begin Smart Dating, and most importantly, it is never too late.
7. “How much time will the program take to complete?
Our program is turnkey, simple and easy for you to follow - and most of all, effective. This is like anything else big in life - the more you put in, the more you will get out. We will give you readings, practice exercises, mock dates, and videotape you - whatever it takes to make you successful. On average, our clients work with us between 3 and 12 months.
8. “I’ve already read a lot of dating books—how is this different?”
