2. Matchmakers don’t get tired. Trust me, matchmakers can and will spend every waking moment looking for the right match for you; they genuinely care about finding you love.

3. Your matchmakers have your best interest in mind, and by that we mean they perfectly match you based on your interests, not just your looks. You’ll never be at a loss for words on your first date because the similarities between you two will just keep flowing.

4. Your matchmakers are with you every step of the way. Once you and your match cross the line into dating, your matchmakers don’t disappear. They’re always there to give you feedback and expert dating advice. Your matchmakers are relationship experts, who go far beyond just finding the guy; they will make sure your new relationship will last a lifetime.

5. When you fall, your matchmakers pick you right back up and resume the mission. After all, the first match will not always be the one; the second and third may not be either. Although you may feel like you want to give up, your matchmakers never will. They know love is out there and they won’t stop until they’ve found it for you.
