Event description
Dating was hard enough pre-pandemic and let’s be honest, it hasn’t gotten any easier. So let’s talk about it!

About this event

For our final Food For Thought of 2021 we’re bringing in Maria Avgitidis “Matchmaker Maria“, CEO of Agape Match, and Lindsey Metselaar of the We Met at Acme podcast to Hudson Eats at Brookfield Place to answer all your questions about dating and relationships, and how to navigate finding ‘the one’ in this new era.

We know you're eager to get all your dating questions answered. Become a part of the discussion and submit your question anonymously to Matchmaker Maria and Lindsey!

You can also watch past events on @BFPLNY's IGTV as part of Brookfield Place's digital programming & share your favorites.

Please note: seating will be available on a first come, first served basis. Standing room will also be available if you arrive late!

About the Speakers:

Maria Avgitidis, better known as “Matchmaker Maria” is the CEO of Agape Match, a matchmaking service based in NYC. For over 13 years, Maria has successfully combined four generations of family matchmaking tradition with modern relationship psychology and search techniques to ensure her professional clientele are introduced to their ultimate match. She is also the co-Founder of the Matchmakers Alliance, a trade association that promotes collaboration and knowledge sharing for professional matchmakers and dating coaches. Maria and Agape Match have been featured in The New York Times, The Financial Times, Washington Post, CNN, and Vice. She has been a guest on popular podcasts, such as Girls Gotta Eat and U Up? and is the host of the weekly podcast Ask a Matchmaker.

Lindsey Metselaar is a native New Yorker, CEO of Lindsey’s Lunchbox, and host of the popular dating podcast, We Met At Acme. After many dating experiences, Lindsey felt it was imperative to create this podcast and shed a light on this touchy subject. Since creating We Met At Acme, Lindsey has learned more about dating than she had ever hoped. On WMAA, she talks with experts, friends, celebrities, and people of all walks of life to learn about what their dating experience has been.
