900 dating service business
Match Mate began as a small, local matchmaking service in Marlborough, Massachusetts.
Matches were made manually while software specifications were developed and the software designed.
While this portion of the service does not match-make, it accommodates those singles who wish only to view photos and contact other singles.
In February of 1996, the advice feature was added to the home page.
In the course of both completing the application and experiencing the results, singles gain valuable self-awareness and self-esteem.
Within three years the service grew to offering data base matching in all of Massachusetts and Rhode Island.The total client base in 1994 comprised 1,800 singles.In March of 1993, Match Mate began offering licensed copies of its software as a business opportunity.While the service uses photos, pictures are not viewed until the after the matchmaking has occurred.Over a seven-year period, singles who met and married using the Match Mate system report only a 1% divorce rate, implying that matching for compatibility first is a more accurate method for predicting long-term relationship success.
