Reflections from a MATCHMAKER

On being a matchmaker...

From the desk of a matchmaker

I am often asked why I decided to become a matchmaker. I never decided to be a matchmaker- I was born a matchmaker. Malcolm Gladwell's book "The Tipping Point" speaks of different personality types. I am undoubtedly a connector: I love to interact with people and have a habit of introducing people for personal or professional reasons but mostly because I enjoy seeing the amazing people within my network (singles included) develop relationships with each other and create beautiful things together... sometimes even entire families.

I have been doing this for as long as I can remember, but since I turned my passion into my profession, I have found a reason in each and every single woman or man I have served to do it. It's a privilege to spread the love to Jewish singles worldwide. It's an opportunity to give hope to a single man jilted by his ex-girlfriend; to give confidence to a woman with body issues who doesn't believe she is worthy of love; to give her courage when she is even too shy to hold a conversation with her crush; it's a privilege to support all the single young professionals who want to have it all: love, success, family and friends- but just don't find the time in the day to juggle all four, and put love on the backburner.

Watching the fruit of my labor (and intuition) blossom into intimate relationships built on a healthy foundation of love and trust reminds me every day why I made the right choice to pursue my calling and become a matchmaker.

If you are a Jewish single woman or Jewish single man reading this from your iphone on the beaches of Miami, or behind your desk as you peer at the view of Manhattan, or even as you get caught up in the hustle and bustle of being a young professional in Montreal, I would love to hear from you and I would love to have the opportunity to connect you with one of the fabulous Jewish single women or Jewish single men within my network, contact me today!
