There is no one quite like you in this world.
Let us help you find your special partner.

Our Company Culture:
Who We Are &
Who We Work With

“We are selective, private, proactive and value driven.”

“Selective, private, proactive and
value driven.”

Our clients are highly educated and accomplished individuals who identify themselves as successful and proactive in almost every area of their lives. Whether single, widowed or divorced and after some excellent self reflection they are choosing to work more effectively and deliberately to realize their own highly prized personal relationship goal.

The roster of our current clients include those with Ivy League and advanced degrees, many are industry leaders in their respective fields. A significant percentage tend to be: high-net-worth, distinguished academics, entrepreneurs, authors, community leaders, and just plain, wonderful people making their own contributions to their communities, families and friends.
In most recent years our demographics have continued to evolve to include a very international crowd either born and raised outside the US or individuals who are living here with international educations or residences abroad. The incredible diversity of impressive backgrounds create a common thread of striving for excellence in almost everything they set out to do!

Being “our client” means you will have the opportunity to meet other outstanding individuals with whom you might never meet in any other way in your life regardless of how successful or active you are. We have found that as individuals evolve so does the need for confidentiality and prioritizing how they manage their time in their search for a romantic, loving, partner. Each client is treated by the Right Time staff and their “introductions” with respect, dignity and privacy.
