The Scoop: Model Quality Introductions has been the premier high-end matchmaking agency in Los Angeles since 1993. Its client list rivals the who’s who of the most attractive and successful singles from coast to coast. Men enroll in this VIP service looking for relationships with beautiful, smart, and caring women, and the experienced matchmakers streamline their search. MQI introduces affluent men to beautiful women and inspires love stories that change love lives.

In 1993, Craig Donaldson was new to Los Angeles and looking for opportunities to meet a local woman. He attended a singles mixer at the Ritz Carlton where he met a matchmaker in the crowd. The idea of professional love guru piqued his interest.

“I thought it was a novel idea because I didn’t know anyone in L.A. at the time,” he said. “I hired her to expedite my search.”

However, as he went on arranged dates, Craig discovered that his matches didn’t quite measure up to his ideals. He wanted to meet a young, attractive woman who turned heads whenever she walked into a room. He was looking for a model-quality date, and that’s how Model Quality Introductions came to the market. It became an elite matchmaking service based in Beverly Hills.

Model Quality Introductions has elevated the matchmaking experience.

This VIP agency specializes in pairing high-caliber men to beautiful and intelligent women. The venture has been so successful that Craig’s matchmaker sold her business and joined MQI as a partner.

“It was a great meeting of the minds. She had an awesome idea, and we just took it to the next level, nationwide.” Craig said.

Today, Model Quality Introductions serves clients in major cities across the U.S. and has introduced many power couples in the upper echelons of society. MQI’s goal is to inspire relationships, not promote casual dates. Craig personally interviews every male client to make sure they’re on the same page and ready for a serious relationship.

“If a guy doesn’t want to settle down, I’m just not for him. If a woman wants to know who’s the most powerful man in my database, I’m not for her,” Craig said. “We make sure all clients are unattached and looking for serious relationships.”

The Top Matchmaking Agency for Elite Professionals

MQI clients have a lot of good things going for them in life. They have a stable income, a loving family, and many interests and goals. They’re just missing a partner to share in their good fortune. That’s where the matchmaking agency comes in.

“Men can use my Agency as their own personal relationship recruiter. We scour nationwide to find women that will amaze them,” Craig said. “These women are attractive on the outside and beautiful on the inside. They’re not financial opportunists. They have their own income.”

The matchmakers meet with each man and woman one on one to create a detailed profile for their dating regime. Their objective is to identify a client’s needs and determine exactly what they’re looking for in terms of partnership. Once a man has been accepted by the agency, the search for compatible partners begins, and the matchmaking team will painstakingly screen and vet on his behalf.

“We call each woman first to share everything about the guy down to his shoe size. If she says yes to the match, we call him to tell him about her,” Craig explained.

If both parties are equally excited about the match, MQI’s team will arrange the date and follow up after for feedback.

Model Quality Introductions has led many impressive love stories over the last three decades. One client learned how to skydive just so he could drop into a football stadium and propose to a woman he met through MQI. Another man rented a castle in Milan and surprised his date by getting down on one knee.

“Every gentleman has a fun way of chasing the romance,” Craig said. “I appreciate that it’s so important to them. One of the most important decisions in life is who we will spend the rest of our life with!”

The matchmakers have an 82% success rate in finding a client love. Craig said they’ve been instrumental in many engagements, marriages, and babies, some of which were named after their MQI matchmakers.

Such stories are a heartwarming reminder of the impact a quality introduction can have on a single person’s life.

“We love, love. We do whatever we can to help our male clients stack the deck in their favor after each date, and meet someone who’s in tune with his lifestyle and beliefs,” Craig explained. “Other guys sit around and wait for the universe to write the next chapter of their love lives. Our clients want to write their own chapter and be proactive.”

Coaching Clients on How to Up Their Dating Game

A man is at the helm of Model Quality Introductions, but its team members are mostly women. Craig said he hires young, attractive women because they have a good understanding of the modern dating aesthetic needed for affluent men.

Craig and his team offer dating coaching throughout the matchmaking process. Their expertise can help singles improve how they approach their dates and become more successful and confident in their relationships.

MQI can offer style advice, conversation tips, and post-date feedback. The matchmakers provide insight on the female perspective on attraction and relationships, and Craig can make assessments based on years of working with clients.

MQI facilitates a positive and productive dating experience.

For example, the Matchmakers often hear questions that come up on first dates, including “what happened with your last ex?” and “what are you looking for in a partner?” A single man must be ready to answer such questions with concise and positive language that affirms his position. Craig said sometimes men make the mistake of getting into ex-bashing or listing physical characteristics that turn them on, and these answers turn off a woman looking for a real relationship.

“What a woman is really asking is “Are you a commitment-minded man?” and “Is this a good investment of my time?”’” Craig explained. “Some men have their answers down pat, and others flounder looking for clues in her eyes.”

Craig told us the story of a gentleman who went on a date with a woman who had a 12-year-old daughter. The man was a single father to three teenage boys, so they had some common ground off the bat. However, their conversation veered into dangerous territory when the man started describing his sons and their behavioral issues, including drug use and truancy.

This MQI match didn’t lead to a second date, but it did offer an important lesson. Although the couple had chemistry, the discussion about their children scared the woman off. She couldn’t risk bringing her daughter into contact with three troubled boys. The Matchmakers advised the gentleman to avoid such a serious subject on the first date, and he soon got into a relationship with another woman he met through the agency and is currently engaged to her.

MQI Brings Power Couples Together

Model Quality Introductions began over 25 years ago from one man’s desire to upgrade the matchmaking experience for discerning men. Now Craig is working on creating a VIP service for professional women who have dynamic careers and serious relationship goals. This service launches this year.

In the meantime, Model Quality Introductions continues to help single men reach their full dating potential and engage attractive women who are well-educated and commitment minded.

Craig shared his secret to his success is in how he relates to his male clients at Model Quality Introductions. He is the only male-owned matchmaking agency in the U.S., and he looks at internal and external beauty the exact same way that his discerning clients do. He gets it!

“When I sit down with a man, he tells me his story, and my story is always similar. I know exactly what he’s looking for in a woman,” Craig said. “It makes it easy to do business with men, as we’re cut from the same cloth. If you are looking to date the extraordinary over the ordinary, we need to talk! Call us at (866) 663-3574 today.”
