Last night was the first ever mini matchmaker reunion and what fun we had! In fact so much fun that some matchmakers didn’t make it to bed until the very early hours of the morning….I will name no names 😛 I learnt early on that there is nothing more important than having other matchmakers as[…]

We need more male matchmakers in the World! Which is why I was so delighted when Frankie Fulchini reached out to us here at the Academy. Frankie is an Italian living in the big smoke who has more passion and determination in his little finger than most have in their whole body! Frankie knew that[…]
Yesterday a matchmaker in the making asked me the question ‘what are the top 3 qualities a matchmaker must have?’ I thought about it for a moment and wondered how I was going to pick only 3! A good matchmaker will have lots of qualities. They will be kind, giving, passionate and will always be[…]
