National Thank Your Matchmaker Day Honors Friends, Not Family

SAN FRANCISCO (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – On February 13, give thanks to the friends who have fixed you up.

That’s because it’s National Thank Your Matchmaker Day, and founder Trish McDermott says that friends, not family, have a higher success rate at picking the perfect mate for their pals.

She says, “Your friends have a sense of who you are as a person, so they have good instincts on who would be right for you. Mothers make the worst matchmakers. They are motivated by their own personal agendas and don’t hear what you want.”

McDermott, who serves as “VP of Love” for dating site, says going green with your gifts is the best way to thank the person who introduced you to the love of your life.

She says, “We’re encouraging people to go green this year by giving their matchmaker fair trade chocolates or jewlery or calling or emailing them to say thanks. It’s about being socially conscious and reaching out to the friends who have meddled in your love life.”
