Match by Julia was founded by Julia Bendis, who was born in the former Soviet Union and moved to United States as a teenager in 1989 with her family.  Matchmaking is literally in her blood.  She watched her Grandmother and Mother set people up back in Russia her whole life, feeling that she too has a keen intuition of who belongs with whom.

The women in her family have always done three major things in their lives:  feed, help and match people! 

Julia's first match was when she was in high school and she hasn't stopped since. She's been in the business of bringing people together for over 20 years.  Matchmaking has not only been her work, but part of her daily life as well.  She has always taken the time to make a deep connection with every person she’s come in contact with, making it a priority to remember each one.  With every new client, she gets to know them on a personal level, their needs, wants and desires for their future mate.  After the initial meeting, Julia personally hand selects a potential match from her database or by meeting and recruiting new clientele. There are times when a potential client is not ready to be dating, which is when Julia focuses on coaching to get them ready to get out there again. The coaching can be anything from recovery after a death of a spouse, learning to have the confidence in themselves to attract the right partner, working on self-esteem issues or couples coaching to get through intimacy and various other challenges.

Match by Julia is a traditional and personalized Matchmaking service based in Southern California. It caters to regular, everyday people with every match hand-picked by Julia herself through a one-on-one process that pays great detail to your specific needs.  Julia works with all ages, female and male clients throughout the U.S. and Canada. All the hard work is done for you by Julia and her network of local and national Matchmakers and professionals, so all you have to do is trust the process, and enjoy meeting the right matches for you.

- Julia's matchmaking worked out better than I could have ever hoped. Her introduction brought me an amazing husband and a beautiful son! I still can't believe how well she seemed to know exactly what I was looking for (even if I didn't quite know myself). I'd recommend that anyone take the chance.

Julia is passionate and dedicated about finding love for her clients. This is the first time I have used a professional matchmaker and didn't know what to expect. While always a professional, you feel as she though she is a loyal friend who is advocating for you. She has the perfect balance of being warm and supportive and pushes you to be the best version of yourself. She is very smart, perceptive, a great listener and always there when you need her. She is fair and helps you to see situations from all perspectives. I would highly recommend Julia.

- I used Julia's services about a year ago, it was a great experience and I'd recommend it to anyone who is really serious about finding a partner and a serious relationship. I dealt with Julia directly and never an assistant. She introduced me to a wonderful woman who I'm still with and hope to build a life with! Thank you Julia!

What a wonderful, classy lady that knows what she is talking about. Made me feel comfortable right away and I would for sure recommend her to anybody looking to date seriously!
