A matchmaker who is matching two people together is essential taking a gamble that the relationship will work. I have a friend who is a matchmaker and loves connecting people who are single. I must have seen her do this at least ten times. You may ask, “Did it work?” I would say four out of ten got married. She’s a pretty good matchmaker. From observing and learning about the ten she matched up I found what made the four a perfect match. The following are my tips on how a matchmaker can successfully match two people.
Avoid the cute factor. Just because you think two people look like the hottest couple in town doesn’t mean they will too. Remember the old saying, “Beauty is only in the eyes of the beholder.” That saying is true. I have seen women and men be married to a spouse who was extremely unattractive but appearing to love them to death. The level of physical attraction really can’t be determined until both people meet. So as a matchmaker make your determination according to the tips below.
Have common interests. A successful matchmaker is one who can identify similar interests that two people have. For example, do they both like traveling, bowling, the museum, jazz music or taking walks along the river. Whatever their interests they should have a few that will help match them together. It’s through the interests that they will have something to talk about and have an enjoyable time together.
Their level of socioeconomic status is equal. Some may think it doesn’t matter if one person is rich and the other poor. Unfortunately it does matter. There are challenges that come with both socioeconomic statuses. There are different experiences that have come for the varying levels of status. To top it off how each status views each other is also different and often negative. I have heard it many times. The rich see the poor as lazy losers and the poor see the rich as money misers. The different viewpoints and socioeconomic levels will quickly end the relationship before it even starts. A successful matchmaker will view the lifestyles of both people. If it seems their level of socioeconomic status is not too extreme from each other then a possible match can be made.
What are their greatest pet peeves? A matchmaker needs to make sure not to match two people up who will annoy one another. How a matchmaker can determine this is by asking each person what his or her greatest pet peeves are. Then look at each person’s behavior and see if they have anything about them that would annoy the person your trying to match them up with. For example, if one person states they don’t like a person who is always late on the date and you know the other person is often fails to meet the timeline then matching them up would not be a good idea.
Are they within the age range? An age difference of no more than seven years is normally a good match. That is because the maturity level of both people can become extreme beyond the seven-year mark. Sometimes it may work like with movie stars Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher. However for the most part the chances of a failing relationship is high. So a successful matchmaker will ask how old each person is before matching them.
By following the tips you will be a successful matchmaker in bring two people happily together.
