[LISTEN] A sneak peak inside the life of a professional matchmaker

Theo Malherbe is a professional cupid for a living.

He's the owner of The Only Social Club, an elite dating and matchmaking service for South Africans.

Malherbe says his service is not about the quantity of dates they provide but the quality of matches he selects.

He screens every potential love interest and does all the necessary vetting on behalf of his clients.

Malherbe says candidates have to answer 23 preliminary questions during a one-on-one before he considers them for further screening.

I am a personal professional matchmaker.

I interview, I screen and do credit checks, and I match people accordingly.

The type of people I'm dealing with don't want to be on online sites. I'm dealing with advocates, lawyers, directors, CEOs, accountants and more.

Malherbe says his discreet service has had a lot of successes and helps all ages from 25 all the way to 81 so far.

He shares advice on modern-day dating and discusses his work and client profile.
