We now have two types of Membership for possible Matchmaking - our Something Special and our Platinum Little Something Membership.

"All you need is love"
So what happens when I become a Member?
MEMBERSHIP PROFILE FORM
Once a member you will have access to the
Something Special Membership Form online. This form is designed to get to know all about you and what you are looking for in a partner. Please complete and submit your form as soon as possible.
We understand how form filling is not fun - all we ask is that you complete the questions with an * which are mainly about your gender, contact details and one photo. All the other questions can be answered with your Matchmaker at your personal meeting.
Once you have submitted your membership form online, you will be able to add a photo and 'about me' blurb to your online profile.
When we have your form, we will contact you to arrange your personal meeting or to discuss your membership form in greater depth and find out what exactly you are looking for in a partner.
The personal meetings are usually 1-2 hours and held somewhere relaxed, close to where Something Special is located in Coulsdon. If you are unable to get to Surrey, the personal meeting can be done via Skype/ FaceTime.
At your personal meeting, we go through your membership form in detail, get to know more about you, what you are looking for in a partner and discuss how your 'Match Email' will look like - these are completely customisable.
We require copies of 2 forms of Identification to be given at the meeting (Driving Licence and Proof of Address).
We also require you to sign our Something Special Confidentiality & Code of Conduct Agreement Form.
If the meeting is conducted via Skype/FaceTime - all documents can be scanned and emailed.
Once we have met you, you have signed our agreement form and supplied two forms of ID, you then become a 'live' member of Something Special. This means we will be looking for potential matches for you and you are now 'live' on our Something Special Members' Area.
You now have full access to our additional perk - our Something Special Member's Area. Here, you can view other member's profiles and chat on our 'Members Only' Public Forum.
(Under no circumstances can private/contact information be given on this Forum)
MATCH AND DATE
We will send you match emails, which will include:- their photos, reasons why you match, what you are both looking for in a partner and 'Matchmaker notes' on each Member. Matches will only be made one at a time.
Alternatively, if you see someone on our forum or profiles you would like to meet, let us know and we will look to see if we can match you.
Please ensure you contact us as soon as possible to let us know if you wish to meet your match or not.
If you do, we will contact them to find out if the feeling is mutual.
If it is - we organise a date, time and location, suitable for both of you.
When you have purchased membership, we will approve you for site access to the Membership Form online. This form includes getting to know all about you; what you like, your interests, hobbies, what life experiences you have had, what an average weekend is like for you for example and of course what you are looking for in a partner; their personal and physical qualities that may matter to you.
Please complete this form and return it to us as soon as possible so we can get your personal meeting and profile arranged and start finding matches for you. Those questions with an * must be completed but all those without are not required on submission of the form and can be completed at your personal meeting. One photograph is compulsory for this form to be submitted online, additional photos can be sent after your personal meeting. Once you have submitted your membership form online, you will be able to add a photo and 'about me' blurb to your online profile. You will not have access to the forum and other member's profiles at this stage.
We prefer to meet our members in person as we feel this helps in the matchmaking process. However, if you are unable to meet us near our office in Surrey, we can conduct the meeting via Video/Skype call or Face-time.
Additional photographs for your profile can be taken at the meeting or you can send us a selection of images to add to your profile. All photographs must be within the last year and will be vetted by Something Special. If you submitted three photographs with your Membership Profile Form, you will not need to send anymore unless found inappropriate or out of date.
We will ask for you to sign a Code of Conduct/ Confidentiality Form and recommend that you have a basic DBS check. If you already have a DBS certificate, please send us a copy and this knowledge can be added to enhance your profile. If you do not have a certificate, you can obtain a basic check yourself at
We are passionate about finding our members their 'something special', with genuine people looking for a serious relationship. Some of our members have used dating apps and sites previously and are wary of who they meet online. At Something Special Introductions we pride ourselves on the safety of our members. We conduct our own due-diligence through ID and social media to ensure that every new member is genuine in who they are and their intentions. We do advise, however, for you to do your own due-diligence on prospective matches for your own safety. Please see our terms and conditions of service and Being Safe Advice.
Once your Matchmaker's Membership Profile is complete and we have received your two forms of ID, Code of Conduct/ Confidentiality Form and DBS certificate (if applicable) at your personal meeting, you will be a 'live' member and we will begin the process of finding you a match.
As an additional perk to the personal service of Something Special Introductions, searching for and matching you with our members, once 'live' you will have full access to our Members' Area.
In this area you can complete your online profile with a photo and 'about me' blurb (if you have not done so already). As discussed at your meeting, this blurb can also be used as part of your 'Match Email'. Alternatively, you will need to send us a different blurb to be added. In the Members' Area, you have access to other member's profiles and our Member's Forum. Your profile photo and 'about me', your posts and comments are public to 'Something Special' Members, all other information on 'My account' and 'Little Something' bookings is private to you.
This is a place to make friends and get to know our members. All information on your online profile, photos and posts will be vetted by Something Special. Any inappropriate posts or comments on the forum will be deleted and you will be given a warning. Depending on the severity and amount of warnings, you will be removed from the Member's Area. This is not a place to organise dates or give personal information. If you want us to contact a member and organise a date for you, we will be more than happy to arrange this; it's what we are here for.
We wish you all the best in your search for your 'something special'.
When we find a match for you we will email you a 'Match Email' with information about how the two of you Match and call you to discuss if you would like a date to be arranged. We will only send matches to you one at a time for consideration. If you wish for a date to be arranged, we will contact the other member with the same process. If you are both interested, we will co-ordinate a date, time and venue between the two of you to meet. No private information, including telephone numbers will be given unless we have your expressed permission. If you do not want to meet, we will look for another match for youl.
