A Message from Michelle Frankel

I understand how difficult and frustrating it can be to find that special someone. It doesn’t seem so long ago that I was single and starting to feel fed up with the search. I survived set-ups, singles outings and the wilds of online dating. I even wrote a dating column as part of my quest to find the perfect partner. It was emotionally exhausting and looking for the right person felt like a second (and third) job!

Finally, in my late thirties, I made dating my number one priority and in a New York minute—actually, six months after our first date in Central Park—my fairy tale came true when the love of my life proposed! Now as a family, we continue to frequent our favorite park with our precious baby girl. After realizing my own romantic dreams, I was inspired to create NYCity Matchmaking with the goal of helping others make it safely through the dating mine field and live out their own “happily ever after!
