When it comes to the art of matchmaking, few can rival the prowess of Laura Jacobs. As a veteran matchmaker of nearly eight years, Laura has crafted the crème de la crème of matchmaking agencies right in the heart of Miami, Cinqe.
As a well established dating coach, Laura has an extensive background in romantic success; however, before becoming a successful entrepreneur, matchmaker, and dating coach Laura had an extensive background in psychology and business. On her newest venture, she takes center stage on Roku’s highly anticipated reality show, Match Me in Miami as a spunky, open-minded matchmaker. She says, “I really feel this is my life’s purpose – to bring people together and change their lives for the better by finding them love.
Just six weeks before the start of filming, Laura gave birth to two twin boys. With the whirlwind of drama, postpartum hormones, and missing her newborns, she immersed herself in the demanding schedule of television production. To maintain a healthy work-life balance after filming, she has opted to work mostly from home and spend as much time with her kids as possible. This intentional approach allows her to fully immerse herself in the joys of motherhood while managing her professional commitments.
Laura has the ability to guide her clients toward a more open-minded approach to love. Many individuals seek her expertise with checklists, predominantly fixating on superficial qualities. However, they often overlook their emotional needs and the fundamental aspects that truly foster feelings of love and connection. She says, “ I help them narrow down what’s really important in a long term partner, and what’s not.” She empowers individuals to embark on a journey of self-discovery, leading them to find the authentic and fulfilling love they truly deserve.
Laura stands out from other dating coaches because she truly practices what she preaches. She has a deep understanding of the struggles and challenges of dating, which she encountered on her personal journey. This quality allows her to deeply empathize and connect with her clients on a whole new level. Her honesty in sharing her own dating stories and heartbreaks is fresh and unique as opposed to many who claim to have it “all figured out.”
Laura’s biggest piece of advice for anyone searching for love, “You won’t find your partner sitting on the couch at home! You have to be easy to find. Whether that’s dating apps, using a matchmaker, or telling all your friends to set you up, you have to think outside the box and be open to any introduction.”
Laura recently announced her second pregnancy with another set of twin boys and is looking forward to the joys of newborns. Roku’s new show premiered June 9, 2023, and it can be watched for free online. You won’t want to miss Laura and the rest of the cast in this immersive inside look at the modern world of matchmaking.
