Will I be able to live comfortably? Will I get a job? Can I pay back these loans? Each are questions that many students pursuing higher education ask themselves every day. The rising costs to attend college have provoked these questions, but with stress levels rising at the same rate as tuition, one question is placed on the back-burner: Will I ever find love? I am currently pursuing a biology degree in order to answer “yes” to the first three questions, but if I could earn a living doing what I love most, I would help people answer yes to the last question by becoming a professional matchmaker.
The matchmaker title involves evaluating the characteristics of one person and pairing him or her up with another person who is deemed compatible. The end goal of a matchmaker is to help the two fall in love and live happily ever after, or to at least test the waters on a first date. In today’s world, it is common for people to focus on the superficial and materialistic aspects when looking for love, but as a matchmaker, I would do my best to assist my clientele with finding partners who share similar values and morals.
I would begin my profession by assisting my family and friends on their journeys to find love. Over time, anyone in the world could ask for my help and I would do my best to form life-long, but most importantly, happy relationships.
