LOCAL. PRIVATE. AFFORDABLE.
We welcome all singles in western MA and neighboring communities.

"Best local dating service" three years in a row!
We're proud to have won Best Local Dating Service in three "Best of the Valley" reader polls. The last three years that the poll included a "local dating" category, Mass Match won first place each year! We'll let you know if they bring back the dating category this year, we're already off to a great start for 2014!

Accountability - No Fake Members!
With free dating sites, it is estimated that at least 10 percent of new accounts created each day are from scammers. And, a recent study shows married people posing as singles are nearly 6 times as likely as actual singles to visit online dating sites to find a serious relationship.

That's why you need a personal, private and affordable matchmaking service where people are who they say they are.

Private Profiles & Photos

Your profile & photo can only be viewed by members that our matchmaker has personally matched with you.

Who Are Mass Matchers?
They are singles from 20's-80's. With over half the adult population single for the first time in history, it is, oddly, ever more difficult to find the right person.

Where Are Mass Matchers From?
Folks from Western MA and neighboring communities in parts of NY, CT, NH and VT who love my prices and my personal approach.

WE WELCOME ALL SINGLES -- STRAIGHT AND GAY!

I really like "Tim" and haven't heard from him in two weeks now. I'm worried that he's another guy who I like who doesn't like me. Should I call him and let him know I'm interested or would that be too forward? Should I wait for him to call me? I'm very attracted to him and thought that we had a lot in common. I could easily love "Tim" and feel worried that I could be possibly lettting another love slip out of my life. I am worried about making the wrong move after so much bad luck and I am soooo ready to meet someone special and get engaged by the end of the year. I'm hoping the year ends better than it started.

Hi Joanie,
Please, you must not come from a desperate place. Even I can pick up on it. Remember what you have to offer and don't get fixated on another's opinion of you. If there is something fun you can do with "Tim," sure, it is okay to give him a call. Or maybe you need him to help you with something&ellipse;

But the important thing is your attitude and confidence. You will be fine even if he isn't interested in you. Go rent a movie like Mona Lisa Smile and get in touch with your feminine power.

Nothing is more a turn-off than a sense of desperation, and having an agenda for getting engaged or married by a certain time is not healthy and will backfire. Love doesn't fit into a time - table.

Go about your life with confidence, believe that it will happen when the time is ripe....but make sure you are involved in activities you enjoy and have friends that are fun to be with. And that will make you more attractive to others.
Take Care,

Lanie

Dating Tip of the Day

Be gracious to wait staff, people in line, etc. It has been said that how you treat a wait staff person reflects how you treat people in general.

Tip of the Day for Joining a Dating Service

If you are a woman in your 60's or older, the process may be more difficult. I don't encourage or discourage. It is up to you. We are getting great fellows. I had no idea what the database or demographics were when I met Bud, but I took a chance. It only takes one. Happily, we have had so many great "success" stories for women in their 50's and 60's and even some in their 70's in our five years of business.

Hi Lanie! We were so happy to celebrate with you and Bud! What an incredible gift we have been given, through YOU! How cool is that? Do you just love your job at times like this?

Mass Match Welcomes Gays and Lesbians!

Gay Dating & Lesbian Dating →

Dear Lanie,
I wanted to thank you profusely, for the wonderful miracle that Massmatch created in my life, connecting me to my fiancee and soulmate, Lynne. We had our initial coffee date early last March, became engaged in July, and will be married in October. The timing was perfect, as I was just about to publish my book, "Attention Late Bloomers: You're Right On Time!" (available on Amazon.com, by the way), and was able to include her in the book's dedications. Under the author photo, which Lynne took, I wrote that, as a "late bloomer" myself, I found my true love in my 50's.

I want to encourage all the "late bloomers" out there that it is possible, not just to find a match, but the RIGHT match in middle age and later in life! We are VERY happy together, and wish you and your Massmatch clients, all the joy in the world.

When I describe Mass Match to my friends I use words like integrity, professionalism, understanding, and always seeking ways to improve the service. I feel fortunate to have this service available as another way to meet people

David, 58, Lenox

I met someone wonderful through your fine service. Lanie's moral support and encouragement helped me during the dating process. I have been having a wonderful time since I've met him. Thank you, Lanie!

Cindy, 37, Springfield

Hi Lanie,
I saw your letter in the Republican and just wanted to thank you for providing the dating service that led me to Jack. Fifteen months after our first meeting (in which I was, actually, pretty much swept off my feet), we are so happy together, now living in a house we just purchased in Westfield. I agree with the author Joan Didion, whom you refer to, that "fate and luck" aren't what make a love affair work out. At 59, I know how much a role intentionality plays. Still, I feel lucky that you sent Jack my way.
Best wishes,

Kathy, Westfield
