Luxdates Story

Hello & welcome to Luxdates

Luxdates is an exclusive and discreet introduction agency for singles in Luxembourg and beyond. We are like a headhunter for your heart – we do all the search and selection, make sure that people are who they say they are, and introduce hand selected matches to one another. All you need to do is fall in love.

The story of Luxdates

One of the advantages of being introduced to a possible partner through a mutual friend or acquaintance is that you have some points of reference. You have someone to ask: “What’s he/she like?” before you meet the person. Some trust-building elements are established: you know that the person is who they say they are, you know a bit about their relationship status, maybe even their relationship history. You have an idea of what the person is like.

But what if that kind of introduction doesn’t happen for you? One of the main reasons is that our social circles are limited. We spend a lot of time at work and don’t have time to build networks outside the workplace (this is particularly true if you have relocated from a different city or country). If your network consists mostly of married couples with children, you may feel that you are the last single person left on the planet.

Meeting a total stranger whom you have discovered in an online dating portal can be daunting. The social reference framework is missing and you must trust the information the person shares with you. There is no-one to ask: “What is he/she like?”

My own dating experience

I first tried Internet dating in the late 90s. I was living in Hungary at the time as a single expat woman and it was difficult for me to find someone. Most of my friends were married or in stable relationships and their friends were all married with kids as well.

Throughout the years, I used online dating services on and off. I met several people, some were nice, others not so much. Before meeting a perfect stranger, I had wished that I could have asked a friend: “What’s he like”?

Online dating

The Internet dating scene can be harsh. There is a lot of talk of “market value” and an emphasis on appearance and social status, which misses out on the emotional connection that forms the basis of a loving relationship. There is an enormous offering of profiles, but it is almost impossible to tell whether reality matches the description and what the person is like. In the world of clicks and swipes, love has become a replaceable commodity with fast, but rarely deep, encounters.

My work experience & matchmaking approach

In my profession as a headhunter for international corporations, I match people with careers. By asking the right questions, listening to what is being said and what not, I acquire an understanding of people’s career histories and their aspirations. I have been interviewing people for more than 20 years and have developed a good instinct which helps me match professionals with the right teams. A background in personality psychology allows me to understand personality dimensions also from a scientific angle.

As someone who loves connecting people (and who has created successful marriages in her private network), I have decided to apply my skills to creating long-lasting personal relationships.

My own story had a happy ending. One of the most important things I learned was that instead of focusing on the negative aspects of myself and others, I decided to amplify what is good. Once I had removed my mental blinders, I became more open. That was when I met the man who became my husband.

I firmly believe that there is someone for everyone. Let me help you find your match. I am looking forward to being the headhunter for your ❤
