Last month we brought up the idea in AlphaCandy, or question, rather: “Why don’t more black women use matchmaking agencies?” Most are free to women. Seems like a no-brainer! And we are not talking about online dating sites. That is so 2005.
We got several answers and most of it had to do with insecurity and lack of information. As you can see from certain matchmaking shows on TV, you and the next woman are in the same boat. They are not your competitor. They are your peer. Your competitor is actually the other women in that man’s life!
You also don’t need a head to toe makeover to get with a matchmaker. A simple wash and set (if it’s your own hair), a nice bath, and cute little number should give you the confidence to knock on the door. It doesn’t mean you are exactly “in” as many have screening processes, but you are one step closer to your goal. Which is?
Well, my dearies. The men with this agencies have to pay a fee. This is no 2-1 for special, either. It is expensive, but affordable for the right suitor. Even in ancient times, men paid dowries to meet women and marry them. It is only to be expected. These days without a gatekeeper like a matchmaker, most men can buy your time with a $79.80 dinner.
