Dating can truly suck, though apps can make things easier. From the couch you can swipe left and right on single (we hope) cuties in the area. What the marketing for these apps often disregards is how much work happens after a match. You have to chat, figure out if you have anything in common, judge if they seem like a maniac, and then actually set up a meeting you both follow through on. It's almost as much work as being the village matchmaker, but it's just for you.
Unless you have a truly loving sister. Twitter user Megan Steffen shared her plan for getting herself a new brother-in-law, and folks cannot believe anyone would do something this wonderful for someone else's love life. It also doubles as a Christmas gift, because she says she's a "cheapskate."

Everyone would now like this personal service to help with the work of dating:

Matchmaking already exists, but it's awesome that Megan might have found a lucrative side gig. And what happened with the boys?
Meg, I need some closure. Who'd she pick? Did they go on a date? Are you already planning the wedding?— Dave (@Amadaveus) January 3, 2018
Dave, she chose Jack, the guy in the slide! Jack has her number, but they have not gone out yet (so unfortunately no wedding plans yet)— Meg (@Megan_Steffen) January 3, 2018
Seems like a quality choice. Keep us posted on what happens I feel oddly invested in this now.— Dave (@Amadaveus) January 3, 2018
If this doesn't end in a happily ever after and movie option, nothing will.
