Matchmakers Make Money as Singles Budget For Love

What can't you attribute to the recession these days? Teens blame the economy for their bad behavior (it's recession anxiety!), and at least one low-rent yoga community has seen an uptick in newcomers since the economy nosedived. Now matchmakers are thanking the recession for a boom in business.

Psychologists think that tough times heighten people's need for love and companionship. In addition to online dating more singles are turning to matchmakers to help them take advantage of the emotional, and sometimes financial, benefits of being in a relationship.

While I don't doubt the power of love to help get you through a stressful situation, it might not be smart to go looking for a partner when you're in the middle of a personal financial crisis.

Do you think paying for a matchmaker sounds like a good investment for those looking to fill their emotional bank accounts?
