 About Jill Hinckley

Professional Matchmaker and founder of Hinckley Introductions

Certified Dating and Relationship Coach

I was brought up in Southwest Harbor, Maine. My family owned and operated Hinckley Yachts, a company started by my Grandfather in 1928. Consequently, the boat business has been a really important part of my life and in 2013 I started my matchmaking business which is inspired by all the amazing people I have met along the way!

The process of dating has become a lot less personal in the last 20 years. People are meeting online or texting each other. Sometimes there’s actually very little face-to-face contact.  Most would agree that dating these days is simply more challenging. There isn’t a particular set of agreed-upon rules like there used to be about such things as who should pay. Also, there are now so many more ways to interact with other singles that people end up with an endless selection of potential matches – most of whom probably just aren’t right for them. So the question becomes how to narrow down the pool to those with real potential. I help my clients – many of whom are coming out of a long term relationship and haven’t dated for many years – to navigate all these new possibilities so they don’t waste time going down dead-ends. We look at the big picture – what they have been through, what they want, and all the available resources – to create a strategy for meeting someone with true potential as a long-term partner.

Looking forward to learning more about you!
