Matchmaker, Matchmaker

...make me a match...
I don't think I need to keep "singing" the song, you get the idea. Anyway, why am I singing this song you ask? Well, because I have my very own matchmaker! Yes, that is right, Matchmaker!!

While at dinner with my friend recently, she told me about a new online dating site that allows you to connect with a matchmaker who will then work on finding matches who meet your criteria. You fill out your profile, add a few pictures, and answer a few questions. Then you get assigned a matchmaker. I spoke to my matchmaker over the weekend and am looking forward to seeing what she brings my way. You can't search through the profiles, your matchmaker does it for you! And the best part is, it is cheaper than Jdate!! So I don't really have to do anything, just sit back and wait for the matches to roll in; which I won't lie, has not really happened.

I have been sent a few matches from my matchmaker and even some from other matchmakers as well. However, most of them are not really matches for me. Some of them were fifteen years older than me, and while I like older, that may be a little too much. Some of them were about double (or triple) my size and while I don't want a skinny minny, I don't want that either. Once again I feel the need to defend myself and say I want to have some level of attraction to my match. I have accepted a few of the matches, but then they decline me. But, it only takes one! So come on Yenta (that's what I will be calling my matchmaker from now on) make me a match!

Sounds exciting! I've never tried online matchmaking or dating... going on the first date must be pretty scary!
