FAQs

Here are some of the questions we get asked the most. If there is anything that is not covered below that you would like to discuss please get in touch.

  • Yes, though there are some pitfalls to look out for. Dating apps are great for broadening your search however they can foster a culture of instant gratification, not really conducive to committed relationship-building. We would recommend opting for SIMANTOV’s international and personalized service with its robust record of successful matches. Each client who comes to us is subject to a thorough background check so dating is set on a safe, secure footing.

  • Some of our clients are very well known and they trust us to be confidential and discreet. Others have shared their experiences in our Success Stories and Press articles. We are always happy to provide a list of Rabbis, Press and referees within Jewish communities, just ask.

  • There is no need to be nervous on your first date. Check out our ‘Top 10 Tips for Successful Dates’ to whet your appetite.

  • The services we offer are highly personalized. We use profound human insight, not computer algorithms. Our hand-picked search and selection process costs time and money and the whole team is involved. That’s why we have to charge for our services.

  • There are four levels of membership at SIMANTOV – Premium, Cosmopolitan, Discovery and Courtesy. Visit our Memberships page for more details.

    As you’d expect, our Premium and Cosmopolitan clients receive a great deal of our time and attention because the service is more tailored and the premiums are higher. Premium and Cosmopolitan clients are extensively screened and can expect to receive a guaranteed minimum number of introductions and special services throughout the year. Prices start at £10K for a Premium Membership plus an additional success fee and places are strictly limited.

    If our memberships are out of your reach, you are invited to apply as a Courtesy client. Although you may miss out on the paid benefits of being a SIMANTOV member, there is still a possibility you might be a suitable match for one of our clients. We may ask for a fee of £250 from Courtesy clients, to cover our professional time.

  • If you’re new to SIMANTOV, check out our site then submit an enquiry form. If you like how we work and want to introduce a friend who could benefit from our popular Jewish matchmaking service, please send us an email with ‘Referral’ in the subject line.

  • We can only get to know you well enough to introduce you to potential partners if you are a member of SIMANTOV.

  • We want you to have the very best chance of finding a compatible partner who you can build a life with, not just a weekend. So we invest over 40 years of experience and diligence into sourcing each of your matches. This can take a bit of time – after all, perfection can’t be rushed. If you haven’t been introduced to your perfect partner within a year, we won’t give up the search. Consider it a lifetime passive membership until your ideal woman or man is ready to cross your path.

  • SIMANTOV has been successfully matching Jewish soulmates for over 40 years and our reputation is important to us. Many of our high-caliber clients are discreetly referred so we don’t need to advertise. We always ‘go the extra mile’ to make sure our pedigree stays intact and our clients are delighted, so they are more likely to personally recommend our services. Our Success Stories and Press say it all.

  • If you’re ready to take your search for a life partner to the next level, please submit a web form on our Enquire page and we’ll follow up with you as soon as we can. Our phone lines are usually red hot but we always check and respond to enquiry forms. We like email too.

  • You’re a discerning person with high standards and a very busy lifestyle which means you probably don’t get much time to meet a person who is ultimately compatible with you. We take a lot of the ‘work’ out of ‘doing your homework’ so you can continue to lead a full life, knowing that the search for your ideal partner is being taken care of. Our success speaks for itself – over 87% of our clients find their perfect match.
