Team of Dating Experts


I am Tara, a former police detective with exemplary conduct turned dating expert.  Instead of chasing down the baddies I now hunt down the goodies as a matchmaker.  As the founder and owner of South Downs Introductions (now rebranded as Your Matchmaker our new website!) I was trained and certified by the Matchmaker Academy.  I have a proven track record in matchmaking with a 75% match success rate.  This means that more than 7 out of 10 clients I introduce continue dating long-term.  I have a large number of clients sharing lives together, married or engaged.  That’s a pretty good success rate!
