Matchmaking

Claire has been a matchmaker with Friend of a Friend Matchmaking since mid-2016. She started out working specifically with the LGBTQ+ community in the Greater Toronto Area, expanding to also serve both the straight and LGBTQ+ populations in Hamilton, before purchasing the company and serving all daters in Toronto, Hamilton, and the surrounding regions.

Her work is informed by an intersectional approach to matchmaking, leaving assumptions aside, and moving beyond the confines favoured by apps and online dating. Her meetings are open-ended, client-centered opportunities for questioning and self-discovery, and she serves as a sounding board for questions not only about matchmaking but dating and romance in general.
