Looking for love: Kansas City millennials turn to matchmaking over apps
Leslie Aguilar, David Harris
FAIRWAY, KS (KCTV) – “This Valentine’s Day, there are more ways to look for love than ever. With so many different online dating apps, it can be overwhelming sifting through all those profiles. So, more traditional dating services are making a comeback, even for millennials. Matchmakers take a more personal approach and do all the homework for you. They’ll get to know you, find out what kind of relationship you’re looking for and set you up with people who match your interests. It’s always been popular with middle aged folks looking for love but now many millennials are turning to it as well. Young professionals are tired of the time dating apps take.
It’s Just Lunch, a national matchmaking service, says they’re starting to see more millennial young professionals interested in their service, especially in the big cities on the East and West coasts.
“By using a matchmaking service, we are allowing the clients to really skip all of the emailing, chatting, and just get that face-to-face to see if there’s a connection. Which is more or less is what they want. Just to see if there’s a connection and if not move on to another potential match”.
