Matchmaking is the art of pairing two people chosen based on a high degree of compatibility, everything from physical characteristics to personality traits, in the hopes of sparking a lasting relationship. Matchmaking services come in all varieties — from high-end dating agencies to franchised operations to traditional matchmakers running a boutique service. Some matchmakers consult a small Rolodex of potential matches, while others are more modern and resourceful when it comes to finding eligible local singles that are perfect for you. Generally, people who hire a matchmaker want to be in a serious, committed relationship but are having trouble meeting compatible, like-minded singles.
