We'd like to meet you!

With over 30 years of combined matchmaking experience and the best clients one could wish for, we are the largest, privately-owned matchmaking firm in Atlanta and the Southeast. We’re also one of the oldest, with more than 17 years in business! Even better, the two of us have a huge personal network all throughout Atlanta. We’ve got a pretty good idea what you’re looking for. (And also what you’re trying to avoid! )

We have a natural intuition about people that translates to a simple ability: matching people together...and in the process, making their relationship dreams come true.  Without tooting our own horn, we’re very proud of our success putting great people together that would never have met without us.
