Fox On Tech: Young singles navigate online dating in the Trump era

[…] “When I started almost 30 years ago I would inquire about politics like I would about any other factors that would go into making a match. What I’ve observed is what with the polarization that’s taking place politically, it’s now not a factor to be considered, but it’s almost a deal breaker for many people,” Leora Hoffman, a professional matchmaker based in the Washington, DC area, told Fox News. She also says she’s personally witnessed situations in which a couple has broken up over a lack of political compatibility, and it’s getting more common.

So how does a young dater navigate the hyper partisan atmosphere so romance can survive the political divide? Hoffman says she believes honesty is the best policy from the beginning, and recommends not shying away from the truth when it comes to your own political beliefs. “While somebody might say they’re in the middle of the road politically, they really have opinions, and it plays itself out on the first date,” she said.

Ever heard the expression “all of the good ones are taken”? It’s not true, according to professional matchmaker Leora Hoffman. But the good men, she warns, usually go fast.

“When a good man is back on the market, people look for matches for him left and right,” she said. “The neighbor, the co-worker, the sister – society, for some reason, wants to reach out and match a man, but the same doesn’t happen to women. It’s so unfair.”


With A Little Help From Her Friends, Matchmaker Found Love

September 16, 2017

Leora Hoffman helps single people find lasting love. But the professional matchmaker was 10 years into her own marriage before finally admitting to herself she needed to end it.

“A matchmaker getting divorced — I thought it would kill my career,” she said.

It didn’t. Leora’s matchmaking business flourished and eventually so did her personal life, even though she decided she wouldn’t date anyone she worked with, nor work with anyone she dated. In 2013, Leora, then in her 50s, married Jim, a widower six years her senior, after they were set up by mutual friends who’d been trying for two years to get them together.
