IN THIS EPISODE:
[00:22] Jeff introduces Aleeza, and she discusses the  Netflix Show and delves into why dating in this day and age is so difficult. [03:48] Aleeza finds that moving to Israel has made her business international and describes what happens on her world tour events. [07:00] Aleeza gives her advice to single Jews living in Atlanta, discusses her business, and the differences between the age groups she sees. [12:30] Aleeza describes her reaction when the date goes well and why faith-based people are easier for her to connect with. [15:32] How is Aleeza’s business unique from others?

KEY TAKEAWAYS
When people share the same faith, finding someone to love is easier because they hold the same values. Older daters are looking for people similar to themselves, whereas younger ones are looking for someone different.  Give dating someone a chance before you toss in the towel and move on to the next person.

QUOTES:

I find it an extremely challenging job because we don't want to be in the position of saying, “I'll just get a new partner if this doesn't work out.”  It's not like a job where we can switch every couple of years. Ideally, we're trying to match people so that they can find the person that they're going to choose to live with for a lifetime.” - Aleeza Ben Shalom

“One unique thing about our services is that we will not offer straight matchmaking, meaning making introductions only. We will make introductions, but it must be accompanied by coaching and support, another part of the matchmaking process. So for us, it's a well-rounded process.” Aleeza Ben Shalom
