South Downs Introductions


Matchmaking & Dating Agency


South Downs Introductions

Our Personal Introduction Service

We provide a bespoke, discreet service for busy professionals looking to meet that someone special.  We aim to introduce you to your potential life partner who will share your values, goals and aspirations. Everyone we introduce you to will have been met personally and we spend time getting to know them and you.  That’s how we know you’re potentially compatible.

Not an Online Dating Agency

We’re not an online dating site, on the contrary we are offline.  Your personal information will not be posted online, instead it will be held securely and only disclosed with your consent.

People tell us they are frustrated with internet dating agencies because they found people to be untruthful about their age, weight, height and marital status.  Despite the growth of online dating agencies in the last decade, there is still over a third of the adult population in the UK that have never been married.  This figure is set to rise, as are single person households.  How often have you met someone online or on a night out and realised they are not available to date or want the same things as you do in life?  With our busy lives and lifestyles we have even less time to find love, yet a life long partner surely should not be left to a chance meeting.

Even more sinister news because as online dating has boomed so too have online dating fraud offences.  According to the National Fraud Intelligence Bureau the figure stolen by online dating romance fraudsters from the British public in 2017 is now at a staggering £41m in the UK.

We want to help change all that doom and gloom by providing a safe offline dating service.

Our Expert Team

Laura - one of our Dating Experts

Meet April – Managing Director

I am April of Your Matchmaker Ltd and South Downs Introductions. 

I was a teacher for 26 years when I decided on a new career path of being a Matchmaker.  Having been divorced and understanding the difficulties faced by both younger and older singletons, I embarked on and graduated from Matchmaker course with the London Matchmaker Academy.  Now I am a matchmaker in a very successful dating agency. 

As an experienced listener and being both empathetic and decisive, helping others find love has been both exciting and rewarding for me.  When I matched two of my first clients together and they got married, I was absolutely delighted.

It happened to them and it could happen to you!

You can rest assured that everyone we introduce you to will have been met personally.  We spend time getting to know you, what values you hold, your background and what you are seeking in a partner.  Our goal is to introduce you to someone you can share and build a life with.  We work with professional, interesting people who are attractive both inside and out.  All leading busy lives, they are just missing that special someone.  Our matchmaking service has matched hundreds of clients to date and with a consistent 75% success rate in long-term relationships, marriages and babies.  We really look forward to achieving the same for you.
