Who We Are

At The Setup, we believe that there’s a science behind lasting love. That’s why our entire expert staff is trained and certified by both the Global Love Institute and The Love Doctor® herself, Dr. Terri Orbuch. Our matchmaking philosophy is rooted in years of scientific research on healthy relationships, love, and attraction, ensuring the highest possible success rate for our clients. We also proudly employ two Master Certified Matchmakers—more than any other company in the world.

At The Setup, we go the extra mile. Think of your matchmaker as a best friend, therapist, wingman, researcher, coach, stylist, and agent–all wrapped up in one. We do everything we can to help our clients find their special someone.
