"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?
