The business of love: Matchmaking in the heart of Charlotte
By Sam Boykin Newly divorced, Joe Zick arrived in Charlotte last summer from New Hampshire looking for a fresh start, which included meeting women. Zick, 55, hadn’t been on a date in a long time. Before moving here, he had tried computer dating. ”It was a very cold and impersonal process,” he said. Zick did a Google search for matchmaking in Charlotte, and discovered Sheryl Spangler, who helps connect singles through her company, Heart and Soul Matchmaking, Inc. Spangler personally meets with all her clients, and after lengthy interviews covering such diverse topics as values, lifestyle, likes and dislikes, enters them into a database. She then hand-picks the screened candidates, putting together those most compatible, and arranges an initial meeting, either through a date or a social gathering.
