Two of us matchmaking service

opinion

The New Orleans Saints winning streak sits at eight, but getting their ninth-straight W won't be easy when the Philadelphia Eagles come to town Sunday. Matchmaker Jodi Meyer says her knack for what she does lies in her intuition, empathy and ability to read people.

Matchmaker Jodi Meyer is not a fan of Facebook.

Director of the Lawrenceville branch of Two of Us, a members-only matchmaking service with 14 offices across the country, Meyer is resolutely old school. We care about our members. Folks looking to join Two of Us, which in New Jersey and Pennsylvania alone has a network of over 10, members, must first meet some crucial criteria.

According to Meyer, every potential member who crosses her path is screened with a criminal background check, as well as investigated for histories with drugs, alcohol, violence and severe financial difficulties.

And what can cause someone to be turned away?

Meyer says one of the things that makes her job so interesting is the wide variety of curious characters who enter her office. A pragmatist with a background in psychology, Meyer says her knack for what she does lies in her intuition, her empathy and her ability to read people. Her selectivity provides members with the best possible pool of potential mates, who she says are primarily business professionals. Many of them think of our service as outsourcing — we have the resources to look into a mate for them, and we help to expedite the process.

Some of these people have spent 25 years and thousands of dollars on the wrong people. Once in the program, members are matched on age, compatibility, chemistry, attraction and long-term goals. But Meyer says Two of Us boasts an 80 percent success rate, and a less than eight percent divorce rate among members who meet and marry. Two of Us has been in business for over 23 years and is currently serving more than 40, clients nationwide.
