The Matchmaker

The Matchmaker is a product of the LDS singles ward dynamic. This tool ultimately matches young single adults with their soul mate so they can expeditiously get hitched and live happily ever after. Yeah, right. . . In reality, this tool automates the process of matching various participants of a dating activity based on user inputs: picks and interests.

Each user fills out a survey indicating his or her top seven picks (those with whom they are interested in being matched up with for a date) as well as answering several questions regarding interests and hobbies. The Matchmaker then takes this data set and makes assignments based on the most optimal matches. The program then e-mails the men informing them who their date is and provides additional instructions on what to do in preparation for the date night activity.
