Executive Search Dating: 'Olympic Hangover, What Olympic Hangover? Vancouver Based Matchmaker Executive Search Dating Announces Record First Quarter Revenue Growth

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 22, 2010) - The recently completed Vancouver Olympic and Paralympic games left many local businesses concerned about a post-Olympic 'Hangover' of sorts, with many Vancouverites opting to stay in and reduce expenditures on so called 'discretionary items' after the non-stop party atmosphere during the games. Furthermore non-hospitality and retail businesses (such as Vancouver dating services catering to local singles), were also concerned that the traffic and business disruptions during the games might have a negative effect on their locally based business' during the January – March/2010 time frame. Not so says Paddi Rice, President and founder of Executive Search Dating, the professional matchmaking firm for busy Vancouver singles.

Rice today announced that Executive Search Dating achieved record revenues during the month of March, more than doubling the monthly revenue achieved in the "Olympic Months" of January and February this year. Additionally, Executive Search Dating's revenue during the first 3 months of 2010 (January – March) were a record for the local business, growing 31% over the January – March/2009 figures.

"What we have seen in our local business, and in the professional dating service industry in general," says Rice, "Is that when Vancouver singles decide that the time is right for them to settle down with a compatible long term relationship partner they are not going to let anything stand in their way, not even the Olympics! Ironically, not only did we see record numbers of local singles joining our service in the first 3 months of this year, but many of them told us that it was also a great time to meet someone new with all the exciting Olympic related activities going on. And downtown traffic was even better than usual!"

"Vancouver continues to be one of the top dating service markets in the world," Rice continued, "local singles often complain that Vancouver is not the easiest place in the world to meet someone new, coupled with the fact that they are busy and not into meeting people online or in bars. Vancouverites have always been 'ahead of the curve' when it comes to using alternative methods of meeting someone new, particularly if that method involves screening compatible matches for them. Bars and online dating services provide no screening whatsoever, so professional dating services such as ours have really prospered in the last few years."
