Hello Lanie,

I wanted to circle back to you and wish you a peaceful holiday and warmth in your home always. Last March as Covid was hitting hard, you matched me with a man named Jon. He has become my world, and I wanted you to know this. I never thought it would happen, and under difficult circumstances we managed to make a go of it. It's been amazing! Now, we are talking about plans for a future together, figuring out how to mesh our families and our lives. I hesitantly and skeptically went to see you, with the gentle persuasion of a close friend, and I am so happy that I took that leap!

So thank you!!

Amanda and Jon
We are writing to thank you for bringing us together through Mass Match. It has been almost a year since we met, and each of our lives has changed dramatically. We have spent the last year seeing plays and movies, cooking together, traveling, and recently, thriving in quarantine. Now we can't imagine life without each other. We enjoy so much in common; we feel we are a perfect match! We have found it is possible to maintain previous connections in our individual lives while becoming partners in the true sense of the word. The work you do is more important than ever in the world we live in. Enclosed is a picture of us on our recent yoga retreat in Costa Rica. We feel it captures the essence of our relationship. Thanks for getting us together.

We had reached a point in our lives when dating opportunities were minimal and the traditional online dating services were disappointing and discouraging. Mass Match turned out to be the ideal way for us to meet. Lanie's matchmaking guidance was genuine and effective. We are convinced that our life together would not have been possible through any other means.

Hi Lanie,
Sent along a couple wedding photos from our simple ceremony along the northern Maine coast in August.
We're doing great!

Michael, VT
I guess slow and steady wins the race, or at least I hope it does. Andy and I have been continuing to see each other and really enjoying getting to know each other. I want to devote my attention to exploring a relationship with him and not see other people at this point. Thanks for connecting us!

I'm sure lots of people have told you to write a book with all of your sage advice about dating and finding the right one. It would be a best seller - you really know what you're doing!

You know your work very well!!!! I tried to follow your guidance and it has paid off. I am a very happy man...

I felt like a teenager again, wonderful shared excitement. Smiled all the way home. We're going to take this slow, but will begin to spend more time together. So at this point, I would request you place me on inactive status. I have met several other women, this one seems right in all sorts of ways. I will stay in touch, and keep you posted on the progress.

Best wishes and thank you very much for your help.

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
We are thrilled to tell you that after meeting almost 2 years ago, and a six-month engagement, Sean and I were married on Saturday, October 11 and are now in a state of newlywed bliss. Sean has embraced his role as stepfather with incredible grace and love, and we couldn't be happier with our new status as husband and wife.

Megan and Sean
Thank you for introducing us. You made a miracle happen in our lives. We are making our formal commitment to each other and exchanging rings on Saturday, December 13. We wanted you to know and are sending you a copy an invitation to our celebration in NYC on December 14. We realize this is at the last moment but would love to have you come and celebrate our joy with us.

With love, Anna and Harold
You may remember Jared and me who met through Mass Match. We've been wonderfully in life together since January 2013. We have moved to CA where we are both thriving and experience such gratitude in the life we share together. And we send much appreciation to you.

Hi Lanie,
Wanted to share that Mark and I were married this weekend. And this announcement and story appeared in the New York Times, with a mention of Mass Match!
Thanks again for your part in our story!

Hello Lanie,
Please look at the attached photo of a very happy couple. It was taken on October 8 in our yard in Leverett, just moments after Dave and I got married!
Thanks for introducing us!

Kevin and I would like to invite you to our wedding. We are getting married in Punta Gorda, FL on September 30. Let me know!

I just wanted to again say thank you. Stella and I married in Ireland this past May. She is the love of my life and I am extremely happy we met 2 1/2 years ago, thanks to you

Len Capital Region, CT
Hi Lanie - Just to give you some exciting news Kelly and I are now engaged to be married. We are so thrilled you introduced us. I hope you have a great holiday.

Justin Amherst, MA
We can't remember if we let you know, but you helped us find each other. After dating on and off for about a year, we moved in together in the fall (during that freak Halloween snow storm), and married at an old inn in VT.

We just wanted to thank you.


Jon & Jean
Hi Lanie,
Joan here. Just letting you know that Philip and I are in our 12th year together & very happy. We owe it all to you.

Thanks so much!

Joan from Amherst
Dear Lanie,
We wanted to let you know that we are getting married tomorrow morning, May 1st, in Wellfleet at sunrise. It was through your efforts that we found each other almost nine years ago. Thank you so much for that.

Sarah and Ned, Springfield
We met on mass match just over two years ago and we both feel that we have met the loves of our lives...we now live together and are married thanks to Lanie who does an amazing job.

Jeanne and Carol, Northampton
We are amazed that we are truly matched on so many levels. Thank you so much,

Valerie & Alain in Westfield
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?

Lanie, I would have paid you double if I had known I would meet my bride.

It is interesting to me that, although I was in therapy and reading many books about relationships prior to meeting with you, it was as the result of that meeting that I came to an understanding about many aspects of finding someone that I had never realized.

Glenna, Southampton
Hi Lanie, I just wanted to let you know that Greg and I are going to be getting married in July. I wanted to thank you for introducing us.

Robin, Springfield
I know you wanted to shake me. You kept saying that he would come along. And finally, the good one, the right one, not just any one. He did come along. There he was. There he is. He's here. He's with me Lanie, he's a beautiful, lovely man. He's the most decent man I know. We just got engaged, I wanted you to know. I wouldn't have met him without you.

I want to take this opportunity to thank you for your dating service and helping me find the the Right one. Jason and I have been together off and on for a year....and now we are very much in love and realize that we were meant to be together. MassMatch really works. Thanks so much. Carolyn

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.

Love, Jerry Posner, West Stockbridge
Dear Lanie,
This must be a new record for making a match! I met with you last Wednesday, went live on Mass Match on Thurs., I had my date with "Julia" just yesterday, and I think she and I are headed for a serious, long-term relationship! We really hit it off, and we are almost smitten with each other within the first 20 minutes over coffee! I know that this sounds like we should slow down and just take a little more time to get to know one another but my instincts tell me that I want to pursue this relationship in earnest, and she does too. Again, I think that you and Mass Match have a great, caring philosophy that makes your service far better than those other national dating services that are out there!
Thank you

Larry, 61, Holyoke
Two Happy Mass Matchers

Norm and Margot, Northfield
In March I had met Monica for dinner after we connected through Mass Match and immediately hit it off. I am very happy to say that on October 28th, 2005 we were married and life could not be better. Thank you for your service.

Pat & Monica in Springfield
Hi Lanie,
I wanted to let you know how happy I have been with your matches for me. I have met 6 wonderful ladies and the 20 min. chats over coffee varied from 35 min. to 2 hours.
I was talking to a friend and we were wondering how or how long would it would take to meet 6 matches like these in some other way, a lifetime maybe.

Paul, Northfield
I had tried the personal ads, another local dating service, speed dating, joining this club and that team. I even went so far as to have a button made: SINGLE AND AVAILABLE. My luck changed when I tried Mass Match. I love how Lanie answers the telephone when I call and the personal attention that I receive. I'm not sure what steps went into sending me this match, but Greg and I have been having a blast since we met through Mass Match. It worked for us!

Ginny, 44, Northampton
Hi Lanie,
You were right--this isn't expensive at all when I think about match.com and personal ad 900-number calls. And most of those are not even compatible matches!

Joanie, 25, Greenfield
All the women I met were smart, attractive, and, most important, interested in having a serious relationship. Also, Lanie was always helpful and a source of good advice.

Harry, 65, Lenox
I moved to the Berkshires two years ago from a large city when my marriage ended. I'm in my 40's and now a single mom. I was attracted to the country lifestyle and thought it would be a great place to raise children. What I didn't realize is how hard it would be to connect with single men! The Berkshires are filled with talented, beautiful women, who far outnumber eligible single men. And because people are fairly isolated here, its difficult to meet other singles.

A friend introduced me to Mass Match and really, it changed my life! They take a personal approach and only match people when they really think it would be appropriate for them to meet. Lanie is very wise about the dating scene, and able to coach her clients well.

I've met so many great guys through Mass Match. I can't recommend it enough and have sent many of my friends to them for help. The cost of their services is so reasonable. Mass Match really cares, and many of the men I have met have become friends if we decided not to date further. I feel like I have a family here now.

The best part about Mass Match is that you can always all or email her, if you want to talk about the dating process or ask for advice! It's a lot better than doing it yourself on the internet dating circuit!

Marie, 47, Stockbridge
I have used several different internet dating sites like match.com. Mass Match is by far the best I have used. I like that it connects me with local women. Women that live within an hours drive of me. That is important. I prefer to connect with a woman that I can visit easily. I don't want to start a relationship with someone that lives in Ohio or Virginia. I like the personal touch that I get with Mass Match. The matches that I am being sent are not coming from a computer, from a machine. They are coming from Lanie -- a human being that happens to be dedicated matchmaker. I love getting an email from Lanie: "Jack, Mary is a sweet lady. You have a few things in common. I think you will like each other. Why don't you give her a call". You don't get the personal touch like that from the other dating sites. Lanie advises us. Teaches us to enjoy the process. I learned not to go into a first meeting with a woman as if I was interviewing her for the job of being my Soul-mate. I have met some wonderful women thru MM. I am having a good time. What Lanie is doing is very special. I am grateful to Mass Match.

John, 54, Lee
Mass Match has definitely exceeded my expectations. It was a great way to connect with someone special. I couldn't be happier at this moment.

Sam, 44, Holyoke
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
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
Hi Lanie, I wanted to follow-up with you on the outcome of a "match" that was made. I met Cheryl early on in the process and we had immediate chemistry. It has been a great time. We just recently got engaged and bought a home in Springfield. Things could not be better.

Thanks for your service and help in finding Cheryl.

Will and Cheryl, 30's, Springfield
We thank our matchmaker Lanie with all our hearts!
