The Scoop: Advancements in technology have dramatically transformed the world of international dating. What was once a niche has become a more mainstream way for people to find lasting love. For more than 20 years, Adam-and-Eva.com has helped connect Eastern European women with Western men who are serious about marriage. Adam and Eva’s modern twist on an old-fashioned concept fosters respect for both parties and uses psychology to find true compatibility, so relationships can last a lifetime.
International dating was once far less personal than it is today. Women from developing countries would often place ads in magazines, and men would contact them, sight unseen — sometimes with marriage proposals. Luckily, advances in technology, including video communication and affordable international flights, have changed that for the better.
Adam and Eva Matchmaking Agency is a modern international dating and matchmaking site that makes it easier than ever for Western men and Eastern European women to connect for meaningful, long-lasting relationships. Today, singles want to know that they’re compatible with someone before they start thinking about marriage. That’s why Adam and Eva makes matchmakers an essential part of its process — especially when there’s so much distance between singles.
“It’s a big responsibility,” said Aleksandra Baklitskaya, Matchmaker and Owner of Adam and Eva. “These people have to make each other’s lives better, brighter, and happier. So we have to work very hard to make sure that they have all the necessary qualities. We try to foresee their future and what they should do to keep the relationship blossoming.”
To foster serious, loving relationships, Aleksandra works with a team of dedicated professionals who offer a variety of services to help connect men with women who are ready for love.
She said that’s why Adam-and-Eva.com has up to a 95% success rate with its clients.
Adam and Eva often begins by helping clients understand their expectations and determine the type of person who will make them happy. When they start there, it often leads to satisfying, long-lasting relationships.
Aleksandra said she frequently receives wedding pictures and baby announcements that show how successful her services are.
More Than 20 Years of Experience Connecting Western Men and European Women
Aleksandra began her work as an international matchmaker in 1999 when she decided to help her best friend from college find a husband. They went to an agency, and she had a lot of questions about the process. When Aleksandra didn’t get the answers she wanted, she knew she could do it better. That was her inspiration for starting Adam and Eva.
Her matchmaking team is primarily made up of married women with experience in psychology. According to Aleksandra, that background is critical because it helps them analyze couples to determine matches who will support each other in the future.
She also hires scouts who are single, creative, and have fresh ideas. Everyone at her agency also prioritizes mutual respect, time management, and staying healthy. She also said that everyone who works with her has read “Games People Play: The Psychology of Human Relationships,” a bestseller written by Eric Berne.
“It’s like our bible because it’s so helpful in our job,” Aleksandra said. “Detail is everything — including the way our clients communicate and what they want to say. We have to find out all of those things, along with their doubts, by asking questions.”
Her agency has a large clientele of Eastern European women who are ready for marriage, although just a small percentage have profiles on the website. Approximately 50% are Ukrainian, 20% are Russian, and the remaining 30% are from other countries — including Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Poland, and Latvia.
The women range in age from 23 to 45, and up to 95% of them hold university degrees. Unlike many other international marriage agencies, the women on Adam and Eva pay for memberships, as well, so men know they are serious about finding love.
A Range of Services, Including DIY Dating and Matchmaking
The process is a little different for the men who join Adam and Eva Matchmaking Agency. While the women post their profiles and work with the matchmakers, the men have more options.
Approximately 40% of the men are from the United States and the United Kingdom, 40% are European, and the remaining 20% come from other parts of the world, including Canada, Israel, Asia, and South America. The men range in age from 40 to 55, and most are interested in having children. The platform also vets each member to ensure they are responsible and honest.
Men often begin their journey by joining Adam and Eva as a “DIY dater.” That means they put in the time to manually search through profiles on the site. They can also reach out to women themselves to see if there is a mutual interest.
“Cross-cultural dating can be emotionally exhausting,” Aleksandra said. “That’s why our matchmaking is a high-quality service for personal selection of dates.”
The matchmaking service leverages the expertise of her entire team, using 120 different compatibility markers and an in-depth understanding of client desires to match men and women. Adam and Eva also assists customers with translation services and helps bridge any confusion that may arise when people from different cultures connect.
“Matchmaking is quite a transformative experience,” Aleksandra told us. “There are many things that happen during the process, and our customers learn a lot about themselves. By the end, when we come to the stage where live meetings happen, they will have a solid understanding of who they will meet — and who they need to meet.”
Adam and Eva: In-Depth Work Results in Client Success
Connecting Western men with Eastern European Women is a labor of love for Aleksandra and the team at Adam and Eva. Part of the process is helping clients understand what they’re looking for in a partner.
Aleksandra does not recommend more than a 15-year age gap between the man and the woman. Her team also looks closely at the family structure in which each person grew up. That’s because knowing those dynamics will help clients gain insight into the depth of their compatibility.
“We also don’t recommend focusing on the looks of a potential partner too much — not for women or for gentlemen. We encourage them to discover personal qualities first,” Aleksandra said.
Her clients also enjoy matchmaking support — even up until they get married — to ensure that the relationship is successful and fulfilling.
In the coming months, Adam-and-Eva.com plans to unveil improvements aimed at increasing its stellar success rate. Those improvements include a new algorithm that can make better matches based on psychological concepts that foster long-term relationships.
Another new service, beyond dating and matchmaking, is a matchmaking tour program. It allows groups of clients to connect during visits to the region, and matchmakers are there to ensure everything goes smoothly. To further help with matching, the platform also plans to include a new gamified experience developed by one of the team’s psychologists.
Aleksandra said she and her team continue their work because they feel fulfilled by every match, marriage, and family that the platform helps bring together.
“It brings us such great happiness to match these wonderful people,” she said.
