Have you ever played matchmaker with your friends or family? How did it work out? We want to share your story. Also, enter below to be in with the chance of winning one of five IrishCentral Boxes.

Matchmaking in Ireland is a tradition as old as time, in fact, so much so that we have an entire annual festival in Lisdoonvarna, County Clare, dedicated to the practice. Of course, on a smaller scale, the Irish do love to play matchmaker - placing together two wonderful people both looking for love. Have you ever played cupid? We want to hear your story.

Submit your story to IrishCentral via our IrishCentral Storyteller's platform. Simply sign up and submit your story about your experiences playing "Celtic cupid", the good the bad, and the ugly! We want to hear them all.

About myIrishdate

MyIrishdate is a new Irish American dating website that aims to bring like-minded, fun people together creating a community where you fit right in. Outside of Ireland, the greatest Irish community in the world is without doubt Irish Americans - full of love, fun, kinship, and that connection. MyIrishdate is made up of people born in Ireland, of Irish descent, and those who simply love the Irish.

MyIrishdate came about because its founders noticed the need for change in the online dating world. Looking at other dating sites they realized they are lacking and asking all the wrong questions, not properly capturing what it is that makes their users tick. 

Most dating sites focus on their user's earnings, weight, height, and other superficial assets.  Both women and men are undeniably tired of having to describe themselves in this same way that really has nothing to do with who they really are. It is time for something new and myIrishdate realized that there was a gap in the market for a dating site that wants to find out who their users really are.

MyIrishdate enables daters to create a profile that for once they will be truly happy with. A profile that shows how they live their lives, what they find funny, and what is important to them.

This tribe on myIrishdate will know the true you - how you grew up, probably what your favorite dinner is, what makes you laugh and these little things all go a long way in creating new friends. Sure opposites attract but we all know similarities are comforting.
