Austin Matchmaker

At Something More our goal is to be in the last first date business. Here are some reviews from many of our satisfied clients. 
“This is a great experience! I think Julia and her team are spot on. I had never tried matchmaking before. I gave the Something more’s team what I was looking for and they were able to find exactly that. I was very impressed. They set me up on multiple dates and I have had an incredible experience. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for someone special. Additionally Julia and her team offer great insight into dating which is a bonus. I’ve learned a lot and I love their service”. – M.W. 7/12/15
“I have to compliment you on your selection process.  Leslie is everything you advertised she would be, and so much more…we talked for hours and only began the process of discovery. As you said, she is stunning, truly so; well educated, yes; artistic, yes; family-oriented and marriage-minded to be sure, traveled, well read, and you knew all that.  I feel blessed to even know that she exists, let alone have the opportunity to meet her. Not wanting to race too far ahead with expectation, I will simply say thank you to you both, and to the goodness of the universe…maybe, just maybe, miracles happen! “-P.D. 5/20/15
“We are in a committed, exclusive relationship & deeply care about & for one another. I told her a little while back that I was in it for the long haul.  She is as well. So there you have it, another love story in-the-making thanks to you !”-CB 6/1/15
“Something More is exactly that…something more than your typical dating expectations. I’ve tried online dating on and off a few times and never really had much success. I continued to see the same guys on each site and a lot of their profiles were very similar. Nothing stood out and I was in a cycle of boring, interview-type dates. As a young, single professional in an amazing city, Something More goes far beyond online dating or trying to meet someone at a bar. They really take the time to get to know you, learn your likes/dislikes, and find quality guys who line up with your expectations. Online dating can be very misleading (and sometimes scary for a girl), so knowing that the ladies at Something More have gone above and beyond to screen these guys is very reassuring in the dating process. You get what you pay for! Deanna was extremely organized with setting up the date. She helped me decide what to wear, organized the time and location, notified me what my date was wearing, and was thorough with following through the next day to see how it went! I highly recommend Something More if you’re wanting caliber guys and valuable relationships. K.G. 9/17/14
“Exceeded my expectations! Alex, Deanna, and Julia, you all are AMAZING. From the time I walked in door, I was comfortable and felt very relaxed. I would highly recommend Something More because you can tell that they really do care about matchmaking. The screening process was easy, and they really want to make sure they are finding you with the right match. I went on a few dates and am currently seeing where things go. I’ll definitely be back considering they hold your privacy and values first and foremost.” T.C. 9/13/14
“I have been hesitant to put such a personal review and “put it out there” but obviously I changed my mind. I have known Julia for the past two years and it took me a while before I agreed to take the leap and engage a “matchmaking” service. However it has been a very good experience working with Julia and her team who very thoughtfully introduce me to women based on each of our respective needs and our ideal match. I have not met the perfect woman…yet…but I can’t think of a better way to leverage my time and resources than having Something More on my team. Thanks Julia and Deanna”. R.H. 6/11/14
“Completely nervous and didn’t know what to expect I was pleasantly surprised how  sweet and helpful Deanna and Krissy were when I got to Something More…. Then I got to meet Julia. Julia is a fireball of a woman who knows exactly what she is doing. We spent hours talking about myself, past relationships and what I wanted. She asked me things that I didn’t even think to ask myself when I had been doing the online dating thing. I went out on my first few dates and they were nice, good looking and respectful but not quite a perfect match…yet. My last date first date was amazing. We have been dating for 5 months now and things are progressing extremely well and I can honestly say I am head over heels for this man. Julia knew me better than I knew myself and I couldn’t  be happier with the results!! After online “dating” (if you can really call it that) for about 3 years I am so glad I took the leap and called a professional. I am recommending Something More to my single friends and am looking forward to what the future holds!! THANKS JULIA!!!!! “G.T. 6/9/2014
“Love is not scientific. We all know that. But with a matchmaking service like Something More in Austin, the chances of finding true love increase exponentially. Julia McCurley is a truth-telling, honest woman who knows the matchmaking business well – she should – she’s been in it five years now as the president of her own company. The results? Numerous successful matches, marriages and overall happiness that many of her clients find when they enlist her services. If you’re looking for love and want to increase your chances for it, then chances are you may want to consider trying Something More.” L.M. 5/28/14
“I highly recommend this service to fellow Austinites that are wanting to meet people of substance. Meeting people through the bar scene is a bit overwhelming, especially when you’re busy! Julia and Dee have an extensive database of genuine and great matches that are looking for the same things in a relationship. I met a wonderful gentleman my first date and look forward to the future with the assistance of the ladies at Something More”. A.B. 5/1/14
“Signing up with Something More has been one of the best decision of my life. I am a successful man, with a very busy schedule.  Their screening process REALLY works. Julia was able to vet women on a completely different level that I what I was doing before.  She goes deeper than just matching up on paper, she builds a real relationship with her clients. I felt like I was being set up by my younger sister, or a good friend. And that is key here After 3 months of service, Julia and her team introduced me to my now current girlfriend (and possibly future fiancé).  I could not be more happier. Highly recommend their service to anyone who is wanting to find Something More.” G.E 5/20/14.
“The service that Julia and her team offer is exceptional. I was hesitant at first but my worries were put to ease with her team. Through Julia’s process, I was matched up with the most wonderful gentlemen and we have been dating ever since. Julia’s service is unique in the sense that I would have never met this wonderful man in my social/work scene. Julia has the ability to match couples together from different social groups and really gives you the ability to find “something more.” I would recommend her service to anyone who is looking for love.” L.K. 5/12/14
“Fantastic!  Julia and Deanna are awesome.  Found my perfect match on the second date!  Strongly recommend!!!” D.W. 5/15/14
“I signed up for Something More after meeting Deanna and had such a great experience. Deanna and Julia were always available if I had questions and set me up with a really great, attractive guy that I ended up dating for six months. I like the way they structured the first date and that I didn’t have any pressure of worrying about giving the guy my number if I was not interested.  It can be hard to meet professional, quality men in Austin and Something More made it easy and stress-free. I would (and have) highly recommended their services to several of my single friends and would definitely use their services again.” W.B. 5/10/14
“I found myself divorced in my early 40s and ready to date.  Because I worked in a male-dominated industry, it was difficult to meet single professional women who also had children.  Online dating options did not appeal to me.  Something More seemed to be a much more attractive alternative.  My instincts were correct.  Thanks to Julia and Deanna, I’m well on my way to a year in a relationship with an incredible woman who I assuredly would not have met otherwise. What I liked best about Something More is that everyone you meet has been screened.  This, in my view, addresses the biggest flaw with the online services.  Additionally, I felt that everyone I was set up with was a high-quality individual.  The fact that I am extremely picky and was able to meet someone who exceeded my expectations is further testament to the caliber of people the service attracts.  From everyone I have talked to who has tried various dating services in Austin, the consensus is that Something More is far and away the best. Several reviews have raised an issue concerning the cost of the service.  The price tag is definitely not for everyone’s budget, but from my understanding, Something More is priced similarly to comparable services in other major cities.  Furthermore, because I was looking for a woman who was financially independent, the price tag was actually a plus.  MasterCard has almost made it a cliché to say that something is “priceless,” but truly, you can’t value the importance of finding the right relationship.  Knowing what I know now, the membership fee was a bargain.My hope in writing this review is that it will help someone else decide to take the plunge and give Something More a try.  I remember that I was a little skeptical before I signed up, but I couldn’t be happier with the results.  Let Julia and Deanna take care of you as well.” D.M. 3/31/14
“After months of online dating, I was frustrated with the whole dating process.  I was tired of meeting people who did represent themselves honestly and with whom I had nothing in common .I went to Something More in November as one last chance to meet the person that I had been looking for.  Julia and Deanna were absolutely great to work with and I can’t say enough about their matchmaking skills.  After 3 great dates, I was matched with the woman I have been searching for.  I would highly recommend Something More to anyone who is searching for that special person in their life. My hat is off to Julia and her staff.”  B.C.1/27/14
“Two years after my divorce, I was ready to find a special man in my life.  But how?  I was working full time in a demanding job and raising four young children.  I tried on-line dating and found it to be time consuming and non productive.  I found Something More Matchmaking through a Google search.  I met with Julia a couple weeks later and after a 3 hour personal interview with her, I was on my way to meeting a very attractive, successful and interesting man.  This relationship lasted 7 months but ultimately wasn’t what I was looking for.  Julia set me up again with a very attractive, successful and interesting man.  Six months later, we are in a wonderful and committed relationship.  He is a perfect partner for me and I am incredibly happy and fulfilled.  I know for a fact, without Julia, the chances of us finding this true love with each other would have been slim.  So single people out there looking for the right person (not just a date), I encourage you to give Something More a chance.  It’s a short cut to the right person.  Julia and Deanna are very knowledgeable, personable, professional, well-connected, intuitive, caring, communicative, trust-worthy and discreet and make the whole experience actually fun.  I cannot give a higher recommendation to any company.  It was one of the best decisions I ever made. “-A.C. 1/10/2014
“I heard about Julia and her matchmaking services through a friend right after my divorce.  I wasn’t that interested because I’ve never had trouble getting a date and there’s always the online dating world, right??  Wrong!  I found online dating to be a full time job and a hook-up scene, not to mention the outdated pictures and lies.  I googled one online date and his mug shot came up!  That’s when I called Julia.  The people who use Julia’s services are serious about wanting a relationship.  The best part is that Julia does all the work for you … from the background checks to arranging the date.  All you do is show up!  And she takes care of the awkward “Follow Up” the next day if you aren’t interested!!  Even though there wasn’t chemistry with a few of of the men she selected, they were great guys and we had a blast.  Overall, quality men.  As Julia says, “you can’t predict chemistry”.  However, I happen to have chemistry with her most current selection for me and so far, so good!  Looking forward to seeing what happens!” – H.

“What a great service!  I was out of the dating game for years and have been employed in a community-sensitive position.  For me, online dating options just wouldn’t work.  Then I heard about Something More and jumped in.  They prepare you well for that first date and how the blind dating process works.  The gentlemen that I went on dates with early in the process were good matches given what I had shared in the screening process.  But I was learning more about myself and what I was looking for in a match; I shared my thoughts with Julia.  She listened well and coached me.  Now I’m much more confident meeting potential dates in social situations.  I’m actively dating and having a wonderful time!”-M.

“I recently moved from Houston to Austin and I finally decided to give matchmaking a try after many years of unsuccessful dates. I was very skeptical at first because I am the type of guy that likes to maintain a private life. However, I decided to give it a go and meet with Julia. She was very honest about her work and I absolutely loved that. In the past I had tried dating through larger matchmaking companies but I never got anywhere with them. What I really loved about her service was that you do not have to go through 20 something people to get an answer. It is very personal, honest, and genuine. I have no problem meeting people on my own, but hiring Julia was a great decision because she was able to match me with a woman with substance. Austin is a big city and I don’t think that I would have found the girl that I am currently dating without her help. I was never really pressured into anything and I really liked that. Also, because I work for a popular company, I wanted my information to be confidential and she made it really easy for that to happen”. -M. B.  9/4/2013
“I found Julia’s website online and liked what I read. I was cautious after trying the world of online dating. We emailed a few times and then started having phone conversations sometimes lasting until 11pm!! Julia has always been great to talk to about dating, relationships, or anything. Finally, I decided to come in an meet Julia face to face and joint the team. The whole staff made the process fun. Julia is well connected in Austin and beyond and has a large client base of high quality screened people that are looking for what you are looking for. Julia is very passionate about finding your perfect match!! She is constantly asking questions about what your looking for or not looking for. Its important to be honest with her and your self about this and “communicate” often. They can’t find your perfect match if you don’t tell them what that is. I found the service to be amazing, customized to me and committed to finding my perfect match. Thanks to the efforts of Julia and her team, I have found the woman of my dreams and we couldn’t be happier!!! -J.M. 5/29/2013
“You can search the internet and find plenty of people to date.  I did that for a while and enjoyed it, but wanted something more than just casual dating.  I wanted to find someone with whom I could connect intellectually, emotionally, spiritually and physically. I wanted a man who was willing to share his life with me and build something wonderful.  The team at Something More introduced me to some very nice, quality people.  Through the process, they got to know me and helped me find the person I was looking for! I’m very thankful I made the decision to invest in my love life, and I’m especially thankful that Something More was here to help me!”  – D.R. 11/1/2012
“They say finding a diamond is a difficult task.  Finding someone to connect with to create an amazing relationship is a difficult task as well. The services at Something More are priceless because they offer a pre-screened quality person to spend my time with who, like me, wants to be in a healthy relationship. I have found my diamond, who is the perfect woman for me. I’m still blown away that the first match they introduced me to is who I am with today. Thanks again!”–N.K. 10/15/2012
