KAMLOOPS & AREA PERSONALIZED MATCHMAKING

Tara Holmes

MATCHMAKER • CONNECTOR • HUMAN

Thanks for stopping by!

I have been in the media business for over 30 years (25 of them in Kamloops).  During this time I have found it natural to connect people both personally, and professionally.  I am genuinely interested in everyone I meet.  After many years of successfully matching couples, I realized I need to do what I love and follow my passion.

I will tell you more in person.  Reach out to me today!

Sincerely,

Love is not finding someone to live with, it’s finding someone you cannot live without.

-RAFAEL ORTIZ

I am hearing the same stories from many people – they are tired of online dating.

A common complaint is that people aren’t forthcoming about who they really are. Some relationships do succeed online, but for some they have to go through alot of awkward and uncomfortable dates before finding what they are looking for.

This is where I come in.

Based on your criteria – which we talk about in person – I get to know what you really want, and more importantly, don’t want. I’m not an algorithm that sets you up because you are the same age – I am an inquisitive person who will work hard to find you a good quality date that could end up being your perfect match

If you are a happy single person between the ages of  25- 105 ( you can never be too old to find love)  Contact me and let’s get matching!

Leap, and the net will appear.

HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING.

” If you are tired of the online dating scene and not connecting with any of the people that swipe right, contact Tara.  Tara meets with all her clients, and her personality and ease of conversation draws out the personality of her client, this enables Tara to make great matches to ensure you are meeting someone who you have some similar interests, and values.  Tara adds such a personal touch, she follows up with each client after their initial connection, and truly wants to see people ‘find their lost sock’.”

“Tara is an excellent match maker!  Her keen interest and curiosity about people helps her get to know clients on an intimate level, which enables her to connect people based on their true personalities and interests. 

Tara is passionate about helping people find true love and she has a unique ability to match people, who might not typically meet in their day-to-day lives.  Plus, Tara is caring and compassionate and will make you feel at ease.  Tara set me up with a great person and we were together for several years!  If you are looking for a romantic partner and feel frustrated with online dating, I would highly recommend the attention and personal touch that Tara provides.”

“I was really resistant to the idea of using a Matchmaker to meet someone until I met with Tara.  She explained the process and I realized this was the best option for me.  Would you believe by the time I got home, she had sent me a match!  I haven’t found “the one” yet but Tara continues to send me quality dates and I am meeting amazing people.  I know that Kamloops will have less single people now that Tara is matchmaking.”

“I highly recommend Tara for anyone who is wanting to connect with a possible love interest.

She puts time and thought into your matches,making it less awkward and more fun.

If you are looking to get back into the dating scene, and possibly find the love for you contact Tara, you won’t regret it!”

In addition to being an amazing person Tara seems to have an eye for who would click. She set me up with a wonderful woman that I got along with very well.  I ended up relocating but If I’m ever on the hunt again I’d certainly take the easy way out and just get Tara to hook me up.”

Tara was an easygoing and helpful person to work with in what can be a an intimidating and stressful scenario….dating! After trying out a couple of the online sites, I found that Tara offered exactly what they lack, a human perspective. She stayed in touch with me through the preliminary meeting stages of dating and helped me to not overthink the process, but rather just enjoy the companionship to see what happens.

It is now months later and I am completely enjoying time spent with my match. I would definitely recommend Tara to friends looking to dip their toes back into the dating scene, she’s great!

Wanna hear a weird deal breaker?

Deal-breakers have been a bit of a contentious issue over the last five years. I always ask clients for their non-starters before I begin the search for their potential partners. I recently posted a funny cartoon on my social media showing a man and woman who decided...

There is never any obligation to use my matchmaking service. In fact, every person that reaches out to me will recieve a free one hour consultation (coffee is on me). During that meeting, you and I can both decide if we are a fit for each other.

Not only do you need to trust me – I also need to be transparent with you in regards to finding you a match.

You have nothing to lose by contacting me – other than your single status!

Being loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.
