A Message from our Founder

Dearest tribe, Last night as I looked up at the blood moon lunar eclipse, I found the certainty I've been searching for. Over the last year, I've started asking myself the questions I ask of all of you: am I being true to my most authentic self? Am I spending my time cultivating joy?

Putting on my pinky ring, and making myself a...

Celebrity Matchmaker and Alessandra Conti Shares Her Perspective On Why Self Love is Key to a Successful Relationship

Before diving into the questions, tell us a little bit about your background and how you came to be a matchmaker! I always refer to myself as a "sandbox matchmaker" because I have been setting up my friends since before it was socially acceptable!  My sister - co-founder of Matchmakers In The City - and I grew up in a small town where there was very little to do, so we would rent out venues and throw parties and invite all of the cute boys from neighboring high schools and all of our fabulous girlfriends. We were always little social butterflies, and would...

It’s the majority of people’s responses when asked this question. We like it because it communicates that we are relentlessly hard-working...
