Playing Matchmaking Service to Find Your New Best Friend?

Is your friend circle lacking or shrinking? The Doctors share that 20 percent of Americans feel lonely, but matchmaker Michelle Jacoby might have the solution!

"People come to us that want to make friends," Michelle says, explaining she matchs from a database of other people looking to make new friends and they introduce the 2 parties via email or through an activity. "It's just like matchmaking, but it's for friendship," she adds.

The matchmaker feels people are focusing too much on social media-based friends and not enough on real-world connections. 

"I don't think that someone should have 1000 friends on Facebook and then have no one to spend time with. I don't think that any person should live in a big city, be walking down the street, surrounded by people and feel utterly alone. Loneliness is a real problem today," she tells The Doctors.

Currently, Michelle's friend matchmaking service is only available in the Washington D.C. area and costs anywhere from $250 to $300 dollars. Would you enlist the help of a friend matchmaker in order to make a new connection?
