About the author (2007)

The Matchmaking Institute, created in 2003 by Jerome Chasques and Lisa Clampitt, CSW, was established to set a code of ethics and strict quality standards in the matchmaking industry. It is the first institute offering a matchmaking training & certification, introducing singles to Certified Matchmakers(TM), and providing matchmakers with a network of peers & support. The Matchmaking Institute is one of the only authoritative voices of the Matchmaking industry with its members providing a reputable and ethical service. In the absence, so far, of any official legislation, we strive to create a greater public and media awareness of this industry and to raise standards across all of the industry and enhance the image of our industry. The mainstream success of online dating has opened the door to using a third party to find love and skyrocketed the popularity of modern-day, one-on-one, personalized matchmaking services. Now more than ever before is it acceptable to use a matchmaker but with this growth of the matchmaking market comes a greater need for quality control in the industry. So with years of exposure to the pros and cons of the market, our team has collaborated in the creation of a new generation of matchmakers.
