    Are there any shadchanim who are actually involved in the process from beginning to emd or does any yukel with WhatsApp or email looking for $10,000 automatically qualify as a shadchan because they got their hands on a resume?

    What’s this whole todo with shadchanim, shadchanim, shadchanim. Everyone can get married without a professional shadchan. Family, friends, friends of friends, rabbonim, schoolmates, shul mates, acquaintances, neighbors and colleagues network and redt shidduchim. You don’t need a professional shadchan for that.

    I would venture to say that most (likely the vast majority) of Chareidi marriages occur from shidduchim that were not redt by a professional shadchan.

    Without shadchanim we wouldn’t have a “shidduch crisis” and then we would be stuck here in the CR reading endless threads on Techeiles

    To Pushatayid: Does he have any successful clients? If so, we have the basis for a new line of inquiry about the merits of a segulah for a successful shiduch.

    I agree that anyone can be a shadchan. However, there are many people who view it as a p/t or f/t job. They spend countless hours pairing people and make a living out of it.
    There are times, my shisduch included, that no one who have thought of it and only a pro puts it together.

    funnybone: Please elaborate on this thought of yours that “There are times, my shisduch included, that no one who have thought of it and only a pro puts it together.” Using yourself as an example, why do you assume a non-professional shadchan would never have thought of it?

    Making shidduchim has to be more of a priority with people. you probably get a lot of zechusim not to mention $$$

    Joseph: without getting into details, my wife and I come from different communities and neighborhoods and our parents don’t share mutual friends.
    My brother’s shidduch, btw, was also through a professional shadchan.
