Are you the person all of your friends call when they want to be set up with someone? Do you have a sixth sense when it comes to compatibility? Are you vivacious, trustworthy, and really in love with love?
If so, you might want to consider working for an online matchmaking service. Yes, they exist! Even in the era of swiping right or left on dating apps, a huge number of people still want that personal touch.
One of the most popular online matchmaking services is called Tawkify. Though its services are not cheap, there is a good reason for this—the platform boasts an 80% success rate using fewer than a dozen matches.
What type of personality do matchmakers have?
To be an online matchmaker, you will need to get to know the clients as well as you possibly can. Of course, you will need to know their turn-ons and turn-offs and their likes and dislikes. Getting to know them also means listening to their life stories and the reasons why their past relationships didn’t work out. It means understanding their hopes, dreams, and fears. Naturally, you will need to build a good rapport and become a safe space for sharing these intimate details.
You might occasionally have to think outside the box and do a bit of research beyond Tawkify’s database. Who knows? Your client’s perfect match might have signed up for a different service, or maybe you remember someone you saw on LinkedIn or Facebook that you know would be a great date. Your goal is to do everything possible to find your client’s other half, so you will have to be genuinely invested in the outcome of your search. If you are more of an introvert, this might be awkward for you. It is important that you recognize your own temperament and make sure that it is a good fit for the company.

After an extensive interview, you will start setting up dates. This is the fun part! You can figure out the mutual interests of the two potential lovebirds and create a dream rom-com date. Don’t be afraid to get creative—going to the movies will not help your clients truly get to know each other. With a budget set by your clients and by Tawkify, the sky is the limit, so you can live vicariously! Hot air balloon rides, bowling, a romantic sunset cruise along the river…The possibilities are endless and specifically curated for your clients. Matchmakers can expect to earn a commission of $100 or more per date, with potential for bonuses.
After the date, you will need feedback from both parties. Your clients’ standards will be high, and they have paid a pretty penny for this service, so it is crucial to listen closely to recognize what worked and what fell flat. Sometimes, you might need to provide some date coaching to your clients. Eventually, determining compatibility will become second nature to you, but remember: If you were positive that two people would be a good match yet they didn’t get along, don’t take it personally. Sometimes, everything looks great on paper, but the spark just isn’t there. When you do make a successful match, it will be that much more rewarding.
Who is the client?
Many of the clients are professionals between the ages of 30 and 60 who would prefer to keep their private lives private rather than deal with the potential complications of maintaining a profile on mainstream dating apps. Tawkify has a presence in every state: There are over 1 million singles splashing in its dating pool!
The schedule is flexible, and while a specific educational background is not mandatory, you will be expected to prove that you have strong interpersonal skills. Glassdoor has many employee reviews of the pros and cons of working for Tawkify. If you have extensive experience in your own life with blind dates or a wide social network, it could work to your advantage. Tawkify is always looking for match experts, so if you can picture yourself as a professional love wizard, send in your resume today!
