Does eHarmony count?  That’s where I met my husband.  I joined on a Monday and was matched with him that Thursday.  We had our first date that Friday.  We were married 2 years later!

I didn’t use an actual human matchmaker but my FI and I did meet through Yahoo Personals.

@princesasabia: We met through an in-person matchmaking service, best decision I ever made!  I felt really good about our matchmaker, after our initial two hour meeting he gave me his “summary” of me and I felt clearly listened and understood what I had said.  he also offered some insight that I found helpful.  They then did a second phone interview with me and sent me a copy of my “profile” which they would send to someone they matched with me so they could decide if they were interested.  A week later I got my first match…he was amazing.  I showed his profile to all my friends and they were aghast.  Literally everything on the profile was exactly how I described my ideal guy.  Turns out he had already finished with the service but was still in the database and they thought he’d be great for me so they asked him to meet me even though he was no longer an active member.  Our first date lasted seven hours until the waitress made us leave because the restaurant was closed.  We are getting married in June. 

Since I only had one date through the service, I asked him about his year experience.  He said that they did a good job of meeting people that fit his personality and what he was looking for.  He had gone out with a few of them more than once, but until meeting me it hadn’t clicked for him.  But he also thought it was a great experience and would recommend it.  It obviously can work!
