“We are seeing so many people over 45 who want something more substantial," Gresset explained. "Those under 45 are burnt out."
“There is an increasing need for face-to-face that is facilitated by someone," Fry said. "There is so many phones and it’s very easy to not put yourself out there now a days."

“That is the nice thing, you know that everyone you are being introduced to is on the same journey in the same way that you are whereas online you don’t know who you are meeting," Gresset said. "If they are genuine, married or looking for something on the side."
Both matchmakers said understanding who you are and what you want is the first step in successfully dating.
