Career Change; Matchmaker*

Don’t worry, I’m not actually having a career change. I still very much enjoy working in retail and blogging on the side but imagine changing your career to becoming a matchmaker for all the lonely singles out there.

In today’s blog post I’ve teamed up with WeLoveDates to share my thoughts on how I’d consider putting people together and my take on how I’d be as a matchmaker. I’ve used dating apps in the past and my friends have used them too so I’d say I’m somewhat educated from hearing experiences from friends and having firsthand knowledge of how they tend to play out. Most experiences from the app aren’t that great and I think the main issue is because you can match with pretty much anyone, only allowing controls on ages and distance (for the apps I’ve used).

I believe in the ideology of what’s meant to be will be or what’s meant to happen will happen. An example of this would be something along the lines of accidentally swiping right to someone on Tinder but then actually really vibing with that person. I also love the idea that everything is written in the stars (cringe) because I’m quite into astrology and zodiac signs at the moment. This leads me to how I’d play matchmaker if that was my job!

AstroDating is what I’d call my matchmaking business, and as you might be able to guess it’d have a niche of astrology. I’d ask my clients for their date, time and place of birth so that I could analyse their birth charts in order to see who else they’d be compatible with, basing it on factors like where their venus is situated. I’m definitely no expert in reading birth charts, although I’d love to learn. You can find out a lot about a person by studying their birth charts- I studied mine and was extremely shocked at the accuracy of certain aspects of my personality. You can tell a lot about a person from their star sign so, for example, putting 2 fire signs together (Aries/Leo/Sagittarius) would either be a disaster waiting to happen or a passionate relationship.

I’d also create an introduction questionnaire, some vital questions would include;

  1. Pineapple on pizza?
  2. Cats or dogs?
  3. Wine or spirits?
  4. Do you drive a Vauxhall Corsa?
  5. The worst/most embarrassing thing you’ve ever done on a night out?

This questionnaire would be used in order to suss out what type of person you are, if you drive a Vauxhall Corsa then you’re more than likely a fuckboy and if you like pineapple on pizza then you’ve got to be paired with someone who also likes pineapple on pizza, unless you want the conflict (??).

So if you’re an app or website developer or an expert at reading birth charts and think my new dating concept is revolutionary then hit me up! Obviously, it goes without saying to always be cautious when dating, especially online. But you can check out this free dating site which is based in Ireland but you can change to the British, Australian, American and other versions!

    I have to say I’ve never used a dating site and hopefully won’t have to but the whole idea of dating would be a minefield to me 🙈 and pineapple on pizza is a definite yes from me 😂

    Interesting post! I loved reading about your idea and I agree, most dating apps don’t have much say in ruling out other matches that wouldn’t necessarily be suited to one another isn’t he first place. Good luck, I hope your match making idea takes off 😊 x

    Hahaha, I loved the “Do you drive a Vauxhall Corsa?” question, that’s so funny! I defo agree with you tho, it would be great if dating apps could match people more accurately, it would save so much time and effort. Let me know when you set up your dating app Ellie, then I can escape from the weirdos on Tinder, he he! 😛 Fab post lovely! ❤ xx
