Even though there are a zillion dating apps and dating websites, meeting someone you click with can still be a challenge. And while you choose a match on an app based on their photos, information, and messaging with them, there's still a chance that they could be completely different in person. If you've been frustrated with dating in the past and find yourself wishing there was an easier way to find someone you want to spend time with, maybe you've considered hiring a matchmaker. Although I've never actually done it, I'm curious about what hiring a matchmaker is like.
Recently, I was talking to one of my best friends who is a lovely single gal, and she said she had just gone on a great date with a really funny guy. I was so excited for her and asked how they'd met. She lowered her voice, even though she was home alone in her apartment, and said, "I hired a matchmaker!" IMO, the concept of hiring a matchmaker feels a little old-fashioned somehow, and even though she was hesitant to admit she was paying someone to help her find a boyfriend, she was loving the process. And it made a lot of sense for her! After all, she's busy, she wants to meet someone, but is done with going on a bunch of first dates with guys who aren't interested in having a real relationship. Her matchmaker cut out those guys, and set her up to connect with people who wanted what she wanted. Read on to hear from more women about their experience with professional matchmakers!
