February 13 Declared ‘National Thank Your Matchmaker Day’

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – February 14 is the day when you’re supposed to shower your true love with cards and flowers, but now there’s a day for you to honor the person who brought you together.

It’s called “National Thank Your Matchmaker Day” and founder Trish McDermott has designated it on February 13. As she puts it, “Before you say ‘I love you’ to your partner, say ‘Thanks’ to the person who brought you together.”

McDermott, a matchmaker for engage.com, says people who are in love should annually thank their matchmaker – be it a hairdresser, a relative or a friend – by either taking them out to dinner if you’re still friends or a silent moment of remembrance if you’re no longer in contact.

Naturally, she hopes the matchmaker salute becomes an annual rite and inspires more people to make matches between their single friends.

When it comes to matchmaking, intuition is key. For instance, McDermott says, “You don’t want to introduce a person who wants a one-night stand to one who wants a marriage and a house with a white picket fence.”
