Cutting Through the B.S. of Online Dating


Listen HERE
International Matchmaking Expert Sherri Murphy (CEO) and/or Tamara Pickle (VP), are here to offer their top tips for matchmaking and why dating apps may not lead you to happiness. Sherri and her Company have been featured on Dr. Phil, CNBC, OWN Entertainment Tonight, Playboy Radio, NBC, NY Times, Forbes and a host of others for her work with Elite Connections.

Cuffing season is here, folks! That means it’s time to fire up your phones and get to swiping. Love it or hate it, online dating is pretty much the method of meeting any and all attractive strangers these days.

And if the stars align perfectly, you can definitely find your soulmate — or you know, just someone decently cool. However, for all its convenience, online dating can be a minefield of B.S.

Like all web-based platforms, dating websites and apps are full of imposters, bots, and other unsavory types who make a sport of wasting your time. How do you know when you are trapped? How do you avoid it?

International Matchmaking Expert Sherri Murphy (CEO of Elite Connections) and/or Tamara Pickle (VP of Elite Connections) uses both of their experiences to discuss some tips in the world of matchmaking. We would love to share insights and wisdom we have learned over the 24+ years in the matchmaking business.

Elite Connections was founded in Los Angeles in 1994 after Sherri met her husband through a matchmaker and saw a need for a safe, effective way for successful and commitment-minded singles to meet one another. The company has locations throughout Southern California including Beverly Hills, Orange County, Westlake Village, Santa Barbara, La Jolla, on the East Coast in New York and Florida, as well as matchmakers in Paris and other major cities around the world.
