Matches That Matter

Meet More Singles Over 40, Faster and More Affordably

Member Activities

Since our beginning, we have worked with many non-profit organizations. Like you, Matches That Matter™ staff members live here, and want to contribute to the quality of life in the community by being a real partner in giving back. We are making a difference in our environment and the lives of others.

The result – we offer fun, exciting and very sociable events so our Members can get to know other over-40 singles in a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Below is a list of recent activities and events. If you’re interested in joining, simply contact us today.

Recent Activities

Matches That Matter™ Flight Groups are designed to work well together, based on common interests. Each Flight stays together for an average of three activities over three weeks. At each activity, a Matches That Matter™ host is on hand, to ensure the project’s success and our Members’ comfort.
