Meet Our Members
This year marks the 17th anniversary of Ambiance Matchmaking. We have evolved and expanded in many ways, but we are proud to have stayed true to our founding core value – to create a highly personal, hands-on matchmaking experience.
In order to stay true to this core value, we only accept a limited number of members per year. We focus on quality, not quantity. In 2017, we had a total acceptance rate of 22%. In 2018, we accepted 27%. This is to ensure that we have the time and resources available to maximize the success of each clients search, and provide that highly personal, hands-on matchmaking experience that we are dedicated to.
We cater to highly accomplished singles, including CEOs, executives, founders, entrepreneurs, high-net-worth individuals, celebrities, and industry leaders varying in age, ethnicity, career paths and life passions. Our clients have done a majority of the groundwork to be ready for a committed relationship… they lead a healthy lifestyle, they are passionate about their careers, they are accomplished and highly educated, with 99% having college degrees and 70% having advanced degrees. We are very proud of our members.

Acceptance Rate (2018)
Our members are a very diverse group. We work with some of the brightest Founders and Entrepreneurs, Chemists and Scientists, Nurses and Doctors, Documentary Filmmakers, Teachers, best-selling Authors, CEOs and Presidents, and other single professionals.
Our clients are highly educated. 80% earned their bachelors, graduate, or masters degree, and 14% have achieved a PhD (not a small feat!). However, we also have members who are high-school dropouts are now running million dollar companies. College degree or not, our members are self-driven and passionate about their life's work.
Forty percent of our members were born and raised outside of the US, including Europe, Latin America, and India. Top three Latin American countries are Brazil, Colombia, and Venezuela. Almost all of our members (99%!) say travel and cultural-awareness is important to them.
Top 5 Travel Destinations
Our members love to travel! A whole 90% say globetrotting is one of their biggest hobbies, and they want a partner with whom to travel. A small percent of our clients even say disliking travel is a deal-breaker.
Top 5 Favorite Sports
Our clients are a healthy and active bunch. Ninety-five percent of our clients lead an active-lifestyle, and seek the same in a partner. Hiking topped the list of our members favorite sports, followed by golf, running, tennis and swimming.
Top 5 Deal-Breakers
Since our members are into sports and health, it should come as no surprise that smoking, poor health, and an inactive lifestyle top the list of deal-breakers, followed by excessive drinking, being dishonest, and having young children from another marriage still living at home.
Top 5 Match Qualities
Intelligence and humor topped the list, but being family-orientated was a close third. Most of our members seek someone who is close with their family and wants the same in a partner.
