sophy singer
matchmaker. Founder.
There’s no field where the adage “knowledge is power” holds more weight than that of love and matchmaking. Sophy has successfully curated more than 1,000 dates and countless happy couples in over a decade of work as a professional matchmaker.
She knows it’s not just about what you know, but it’s also about who you know. Her approach to dating and long-term love is equal parts science, emotion and intuition. It’s rooted in her own passion for the field, which sprouted after she broke off her own engagement, shifted her dating approach and found her husband, Michael, with whom she has been happily married for over 10 years.

…First dates are about creating connection and determining potential.

Sophy’s matchmaking process is supported by her rich training in behavioral and relationship science, which informs her unique approach to coupling, one that is guided as much by psychology and analysis as it is by excellent, time-honed intuition for what makes two people click.

Sophy’s boutique approach is special. She started her career in matchmaking in 2010 as a dating coach, and found she had both a passion and knack for mentoring people to become their best selves as they played the dating field.

In 2016, she took a leap of faith, quit her job and joined the largest matchmaking firm in the nation. After countless engagements, marriages and babies born as a result of her matches, however, she wanted to get more personal, so in 2018, Sophy branched out and launched her own agency. At Sophy Love, she is able to bring her bubbly, intuitive and unparalleled charm and optimism to every single client. Her service is personal and personalized, and her results speak for themselves.

Like Sophy herself, the process she offers is fun. It’s exciting. It’s exactly what love is supposed to be like.

Bea comes to Sophy Love with many years of experience in the hospitality industry, where she worked with guests and employees alike from across the globe. Her work has ranged from client-facing front office guest services duties to human resources responsibilities, and throughout it all, the most thrilling part has been the opportunity to engage with people from many different cultures, learning about their unique cultures and perspectives and sharing in projects together toward a common goal. She is a master of customer service and customer satisfaction, and she comes to us armed with a degree in Tourism Management.

Deeply passionate about people, the sparks that can fly between them and the new connections that can be made each day, Bea’s love of hospitality stems from a desire to impact people's journeys. Her step into the world of matchmaking is a logical extension of that love, one that allows her to play a role making even more lasting memories for her clients — this time, the kind of memories that shift the course of a person’s entire life.

Tamar Caspi

online dating Specialist

Tamar used to believe you should accept every first date you’re asked on because you never knew when it was going to be your last. With that philosophy in mind, Tamar went on hundreds of first dates but only a few second dates and thought she had the dating game down to a science. If a guy didn’t check a box, she would check out. 

As her own journey unfolded, so too did her attitude towards dating: she realized that although dating is a numbers game, there’s no algorithm. Tamar knew it was time to change her approach — and her mindset — and to stop looking at dating as data. Tamar’s new outlook meant quality over quantity and being open to influence. 

Tamar had so many funny and shocking dating stories that she began writing about them in 2007 and her internationally-syndicated dating advice column turned into a book titled “How to Woo a Jew: The Modern Jewish Guide to Dating and Mating”. As an online dating consultant, Tamar has created and edited hundreds of profiles.
