We're excited to share two GLOBE member enterprises which seek to match LGBTI Melburnians with their soulmate - Dinner with Oscar Club and Elite Matchmaking Agency.
Elite Matchmaking Agency is a tailored matchmaking service for LGBTI people where through face-to-face consultation your ideal suitors are identified and introduced to you in a date. Dinner with Oscar club is a social dinner party event for LGBTI singles looking to socialise and meet other singles.
What sets the Dinner with Oscar Club and Elite Matchmaker Agency apart from the rest?
For starters, we are the only gay and lesbian dating dinner club in the world. The concept of safe and ethical social dinner dating has been around for decades (for example, our heterosexual service has been successfully operating since 1991 in Melbourne). This was such a surprise to us: that no one else had cloned this amazing concept for members of the LGBTQ+ community.
With The Elite Matchmaker agency, we are the only Melbourne-based gay and lesbian matchmaker agency—we know the best restaurants in the area, we know what people love and what they enjoy, and this makes our service extra special.
How did Dinner with Oscar Club and the Elite Matchmaker Agency begin?
The idea of Dinner with Oscar was born the moment Katja Rembrandt became our group MD. It has taken us 7 years of careful research, planning, development and preparation to finally clone our Dinner at Eight service for the gay and lesbian community in Australia. The name of our dinner club for gay singles pays tribute to the famous author and playwright Oscar Wilde. We admire not only his input to modern literature, but his aestheticism, sense of humour, love of great clothing, food and company.
The Elite Matchmaker Agency is a logical addition to a social Dinner Club dating service. It upholds the highest level of professionalism and values the discretion of our members. As Melbourne’s most exclusive same sex matchmaking agency we specialise in bringing together like-minded, successful and professional gay singles who value quality and discretion. The name began with an inspiration to provide a premium service to very discerning clients. We just felt that the name was most suited to our gay and lesbian members.
What's special about the Dinner with Oscar Club and Elite Matchmaker Agency ethos?
Finding a true soulmate through a phone screen or dating site is a difficult, time consuming and often upsetting journey. A machine’s lack of understanding and care for your success makes it even worse. That is why our service is built on personal human interaction at every step of your journey. This provides you with a discreet, secure and enjoyable way of dating. We like to think of ourselves as the pioneer of ethical dating in Australia. It is 100% real: real people, real good food, real conversation face-to-face. It is proven, established, old-fashioned in a good way and a real opportunity for people to find their true soulmate for happy, genuine, long-term relationships or marriages.
How does Dinner with Oscar Club and Elite Matchmaker Agency hope to benefit from GLOBE?
The support and encouragement which we receive from GLOBE members is just unbelievable.
What's in store for Dinner with Oscar Club and Elite Matchmaker Agency in the future?
We are just at the very beginning of our journey. We hope the future will be exciting and successful with a lot of great dinner parties and a lot of champagne drunk at the weddings of our perfectly matched members!
