FAQ

ShidduchMatch is a platform through which marriage-minded Jews can create profiles and be matched with suitable candidates through a matchmaker.
Our website includes comprehensive profile questions, which touch on key hashkafa issues and religious preferences. The site uses an advanced matching algorithm, which shows the matchmaker compatible matches based on these factors and more. When the matchmaker makes his match, there are a lot of compatibility issues that have already been ironed out. This means more effective matchmaking.
Our website caters to Shomer Shabbat and Shomer Negiah individuals.
ShidduchMatch caters strictly to Yeshivish, Orthodox, Modern Orthodox and Traditional Jews and does not have options for Reform or Conservative clientele.
Profiles are initially visible only to the matchmakers. Once a match is made, the boy can see the girl's profile. If he accepts the match, the girl then sees the boy's profile.
It depends on how many compatible matches we have in our system. Some might be matched more quickly, while for others, it may take longer.
You will receive an email notification.
Besides making the match, the matchmaker is the middle-man between both sides. He contacts you to set up the dates and after each date you report back to him how it went and if you are interested to go out again. Once dating gets serious, contact information is swapped and the matchmaker steps out of the picture.
