We expect you to have some questions — that’s what happens when a company is different from every one of its competitors. If you don’t see your question below, or if you want more information on the dating services we provide, call us today!
Wait, is that Youngstown in the background?
Ha Ha…that’s funny. It looks great though, right?
Is this some kind of a hookup service?
No, but it’s funny you should ask that since “Hook Me Up!” was actually the name we originally wanted to go with for our dating service. We ultimately decided against it because we thought it would give people the wrong impression about what we were doing.
Is this a matchmaking service?
No, this is a dating service. BIG difference. 😎
What is the difference between a matchmaking service and a dating service?
Matchmaking sites and services are ridiculously high-priced scams that overpromise and underdeliver every time. They run their business around the unattainable promise that you will find true love and marriage. This only creates high-pressure scenarios and awkward encounters for something that’s meant to be as fun and genuine as dating. These services are normally located in the big city and, and to be honest, are becoming a service for modern arranged marriages. A dating service is a low-pressure, affordable program that gives you realistic expectations of meeting new people. It’s fun, just like dating is meant to be!
Where is your office located and what are your hours?
We’re conveniently located on Market Street, right across from the Southern Park Mall in Boardman, Ohio. We understand you’re busy during the workday, so we take consultations by appointment during the afternoon and evenings every day of the week. You’re welcome to stop in or give us a call, but the best way to start dating is by clicking the “get started” button below.
How do your fees work?
Our fees work just like a gym membership or any dating website. Fix Me Up! has no joining fees and we even offer a financing option, which you will never find from another dating service. We also offer discounted plans for the younger crowd and students.
Do you accept cash?
No, because we make your safety and security a priority. When someone is looking to pay with cash only, it is an immediate red flag. We have an obligation to protect our members from suspicious characters, and by accepting all four major credit cards, we have plenty of options to suit your preferences. You can also pay by check if you’re paying in full. If you have cash, great — put it in your bank account!
How many dates do you guarantee?
We guarantee a minimum of five dates during your seven-month contract. To keep our promise, we allow you to continue using our dating service for free until you get those five dates.
What areas and ages do you serve?
Our dating service takes on female clients 18 years and older and male clients 21 years and older from the greater Mahoning Valley. This includes areas like Austintown, Salem, Hermitage, North Jackson, Poland, and Niles, to name a few. As a rule of thumb, if you are within a 40-minute drive of our Boardman, Ohio office, you are good to go. Keep in mind that we offer discounts for our younger members, too!
Is anyone allowed to join? Who is your ideal client? Who’s NOT your ideal client?
Convicted felons and registered sex offenders are automatically prohibited from our dating program. In other cases, we must feel as though we can genuinely help you before we can ethically take your money. This is decided during your complimentary consultation and should give you confidence in the quality of our dating service, as we’ve met with everyone in the program face-to-face.
While there is no exact description of our ideal client, individuals who live active and healthy lifestyles are more likely to find dates. You certainly don’t have to be a fitness model to be one of our clients, but people who naturally have more confidence are more likely to be successful. On the other hand, those who live extreme lifestyles might be better suited for other speciality online dating sites related to their specific niche.
That’s a big city in the background. Do I have to be a doctor, lawyer, or a well-dressed office person to join your dating service?
No, you don’t have to be a white-collar worker to be a part of our program. You don’t have to have a college degree, either. Just like handling the costs of your other bills, though, you will have to be employed to stay up-to-date on your membership.
How long does a consultation take, and what is it used for?
We like to spend 45 minutes to an hour getting to know you. The first thing you’ll do when you arrive is fill out a very short questionnaire that will be the backbone of your profile and one of the main ways we arrange your dates. Our questionnaire focuses on real questions that identify interests and passions — not endless pages of ridiculous compatibility tests or repetitive questions that everyone answers the same way. Once this is done, we fill in the missing pieces your questionnaire can’t answer by getting to know you in person. Everyone we work with has a consultation with us first, ensuring you’ll be going on quality dates!
Is there anything I’m not required to tell you?
Though we don’t pry into the specifics of your background and personal life other than legal proceedings, we require your honesty to help us better improve your experience with our dating service. This includes subjects such as past marriages, children, and other things that can directly impact your dating life. When everyone in the dating program is completely honest with us, we are able to arrange the best dates possible. Since we do not verify how much money you make, members are unable to request certain levels of dates to make sure priorities remain in order. The members of our dating service are doing well enough for themselves to add a professional dating service into their budget, and that should be satisfactory enough. Paying too much for a dating service is one thing, but paying too little can be just as dangerous. At Fix Me Up!, we have found the most successful balance.
Do I browse pictures and select my dates?
No. This is the main reason online dating has become such a failure. While some people are able to take and edit outstanding pictures, others look much better in person. It’s also natural for people to scrutinize photos and use them as a reason to date or not date another person. By relying on real factors that matter to set you up on dates without seeing photos of others, we set ourselves apart from other online dating companies. Trust us to do the work!
Why is it so important that I don’t see pictures of my date?
At the end of the day, there is only one thing that matters when it comes to a great date — chemistry. It’s something you can’t detect from a photo or after a brief online conversation. The only way to discover a real spark is meeting someone in person. If you instead relied on someone’s appearance and spent weeks chatting online, you could be disappointed to learn that nothing real is there when you finally meet them in person. This also prevents the risk of catfishing, or someone pretending to be someone else on the internet during online conversations.
How do the dates work and who pays?
Remember how important we said your initial consultation was? That allows us to know both you and your date, giving us the ability to pick a public place that will be comfortable for the two of you, usually a bar or restaurant. All of our clients agree to pay for themselves on their dates, allowing you to focus on enjoying the date without worrying about the potentially awkward encounter of who is paying.
What made you create this company?
We are confident there has never been anything quite like this before in the realm of dating services. Several years ago, one of our owners became frustrated with online dating services before turning to an in-person matchmaking service as a solution just to find out it was far too expensive, which turned many qualified candidates away. At Fix Me Up!, we are filling the void by providing a genuine dating service at an affordable cost.
What qualifications do you have to arrange dates for me?
Dating services are considered entertainment services by law – they are supposed to be fun! There are no licenses, degrees, or certificates required to run a dating service or to fix people up on dates, and for good reason. If anyone ever tells you they have a matchmaking certificate or an advanced degree geared toward matchmaking, you should hide your wallet and run away because they don’t exist. With a sound business structure and multiple decades of professional experience under our belt, we are better able to listen to clients and arrange the best dates possible.
Do you serve the LGBT Community?
As of right now, we have not received enough interest from the LGBT Community to be able to open a program for them.
I’ve seriously considered joining FarmersOnly or Christian Mingle. Will your service be a good fit for me?
If joining one of those services was your first instinct and you joined because of your interests and passions, we are probably not the best fit for you. We can safely say that if your initial instinct was to join Match, E-Harmony, or an in-person service like It’s Just Lunch, then you should thrive with us!
I don’t see a price anywhere. Is your dating service affordable?
Yes. We’re only slightly more expensive than the premier online dating sites because we offer more. Remember, you get what you pay for.
Why should I join Fix Me Up! if online dating services are less expensive?
Dating websites don’t guarantee dates, personally meet with you to set you up with the best people, or give you dating options, now do they?
Now we have a question for you – are you ready to meet us yet? 😎
