There are three ways to engage with us... choose as many as you’d like:
1. Apply to Become a Matchmaking Client
This option is for those ready to find a serious relationship and date with intention. We’re going to make it easy for you. No more wasting time swiping left and right. A personal matchmaker will work on your behalf to find the love of your life.
2. Apply to Join Our DOTTIE Pool
Ready to date with intention, but not commit to hiring a matchmaker? This option is for you. If selected as a potential match for a client, we will contact you for further compatibility screening.
3. Apply to Become a DOTTIE Club Member
Launching later this year, the Club offers a series of curated, one-of-a-kind experiences that will take place in various pop-up locations – exceptionally crafted events, bringing together the best of us. You won’t want to miss out.
Once an application is submitted, it is automatically placed on a waitlist pending review by our Membership Committee. Continual review of the waitlist remains a vital part of building a vibrant community.
Membership decisions can range, depending upon the volume of applications in the queue.
Approved applicants will receive notification by email.
We love that you value the DOTTIE community and truly appreciate your interest to become a part. While there are numerous platforms available to bring together a wide range of people, DOTTIE was expressly created to fill a void in the market for people of color.
If you’d like to support our mission, please consider becoming an ally, referring a melanin friend, or contributing funds to support our community.
We’re fortunate to have representation across the U.S. with particularly strong support in New York, D.C., Houston, Boston, Chicago, and Atlanta.
In the spirit of a beta approach, have begun with pop-up events in the New York metro area where member concentration is strongest. Learnings from NY will help inform our approach to a broader rollout of the DOTTIE Social Club in other markets.
Our matchmaking expertise is rooted in bringing together Black men and women; however, we believe everyone deserves love and we welcome individuals of all sexual orientations. Our extensive matchmaker network and partnerships afford us access to a broader candidate pool to include all sexual orientations.
