With high standards and unwilling to settle for anything less than she deserves, Caitlin has struggled to find someone remotely close to her forever person.

Janelle never dates casually. Managing her auto immune disease, lupus, means her biological clock ticks louder than for many women nearing thirty so she feels pressure to have kids sooner than later. Janelle says she’s bossy, clingy, short-tempered and “ridiculously picky” when it comes to men, finding any reason for confrontation.

CEO, Fashion & Beauty

Alpha female Melinda is a confident and sassy businesswoman who doesn’t suffer fools. She is the centre of attention in any room and people can find her looks and intelligence intimidating. But while Melinda has no problems attracting men, the right kind of men always seem to elude her.

Beneath her tough exterior, Melinda is very emotional and admits to picking fights in a relationship when she gets bored or insecure about not being number one.

With high expectations and a lot to lose, Melinda wants an ambitious man who is equally business-minded, understands her lifestyle and won’t be clingy – but he must be patient.

Dental Hygienist

In her mid-thirties, Sandy has never been in a serious relationship. Growing up as an Indian woman born in Australia, Sandy’s parents were keen to uphold the traditional values of Indian culture. She had limited exposure to the opposite sex – she was not allowed to mix with boys and had no male friends. She also went to an all-girls school and studied dental nursing with women.

Sandy struggles with insecurities that come with the lack of dating experience and the fear of being used for “one thing”. Now she wants to fast-track her experience with someone who can respect her boundaries and help her overcome these fears.

With her parents still happily together in an arranged marriage, Sandy believes the MAFS experiment could work for her. She’s trusting the experts to match her with someone compassionate, who she hopes to share a beautiful wedding with.


PR Manager

Fast-talking, passionate and bubbly, Tahnee goes a million miles an hour, but when it comes to love she’s all steamed out. 

Contrary to her generation, Tahnee is sick of dating apps - the shallow swipe-right culture that results in “situationships” based on looks and no real connection. Having grown up being the awkward teenager, Tahnee now gets attention from guys, but they’re still not asking her out and she’s left wondering what she’s doing wrong.

She may work in a high-pressure position, but Tahnee is not high maintenance. As her favourite thing to do is cook food from their national cuisine with her mum, the quickest way to Tahnee's heart is with some Thai cooking - takeaway can suffice - and a simple but thoughtful date. Proud of her heritage and her professional successes in life, Tahnee is hopeful that the experts can help her tick true love off her bucket list.
