On August 31st, National Matchmaker Day honors those romantics whose dauntless pursuit of perfect purchase for cupid’s arrow results in lasting love stories.

Playing matchmaker requires a bit of social savvy, the ability to listen and timing. They know each friends’ habits (good and bad), passions, and hobbies.  When there is a spark, even when the prospective couple is painfully unaware, the matchmaker knows.

While a matchmaker isn’t always successful, her (or his) heart is certainly in the right place!  It is all about love, after all.  Even the success stories can be quite entertaining.  From the awkward blind dates and the miscommunications to the complete mismatches, National Matchmaker Day raises a toast to the people who bring lovers together.
