In the search for love, finding a perfect match can be a fairly daunting task — from personality to appearance and beyond, there’s an endless list of things to consider. When she grew tired of coming home to an empty house, Jean Ende of Brooklyn decided to start searching for a companion online. “It just was incredibly complicated, there were too many. And they were too old, too young, and too big,” said Ende.
For Shiran Arberman, also from Brooklyn, finding someone to fit her and her son’s active lifestyles was important, but viewing potential matches online was not what she hoped. “To be honest, you cannot see personality through a picture,” Arberman explained. So both women turned to the services of matchmaker Sarah Brasky.
