At the convenience of your computer or mobile phone, you can do a search query of your shallow-as-heck preferences (i.e.
height, body type, etc.) to find you PAGES of potential matches.
I’m not saying these are compatible matches or even quality, non-psycho matches, but at least the “love is a crap shoot” game gives you the dice that could role in your favor.
As a matchmaker who’s also co-founded an online dating site, I admit it is quite fun having toes in both ponds.
On the one hand, you have the matchmaking world demonizing online dating to convince would-be digital daters to turn to the personal love hunters. I did say I had toes in ponds…), you have online dating sites that could care less about the matchmaking world. An ideal matchmaking candidate is someone who places significant importance on their privacy and safety, who feels more comfortable at the hands of a love expert.
Online dating is convenient, simple, fast and cheap (compared to matchmakers), and it’s simply just way too easy for anyone to create a website. If you’re the type of person who would pick a headhunter for your career, you’re perfect for matchmaking!

Did you know it takes an average of 11 hours of scouring the Internet before you may even go on a physical date with someone through an online dating site? Hand it over to a matchmaker, and you’re guaranteed an introduction before the next full moon.
Bonus: You’ll always be introduced to people that are single and looking for a serious long-term relationship.
So long to the days you accidentally dated a person who’s “just not ready for something serious right now.” After all, such a personalized service to find you someone within preference takes time, energy and the most extensive network development you have ever encountered, because let me tell you, matchmakers are the most ridiculously connected people you will ever meet.
A niche dating site is a much more targeted way to meet singles that share common core beliefs, values and hobbies.
Let’s face it, one in 20 people are in fact creepers. That said, exercise caution, only date in public venues and don’t ever give your personal details or banking information.
