Video: Modern matchmakers in the age of Tinder

Watch - Matchmakers do what Tinder, eHarmony, JDate and Match.com can't

For those tired of online dating sites and hook-up apps, there's Elegant Introductions, a modern-day matchmaking service started in 2014 by besties Nancy Gold and Barbara Black Goldfarb.

Matchmaking is hardly a new thing, stretching back to biblical times and popularized in Broadway shows like "Hello, Dolly!" and "Fiddler on the Roof and television's "The Millionaire Matchmaker."

Both women explain that their service vigorously vet their clients who live anywhere from West Palm Beach to Miami and are ages 20 to 80-plus. The ladies specialize in Jewish singles.

They say about their service, "At the end of the day everyone is looking for the same thing…someone who will love you, unconditionally. We all want to come home, close the door and have a shoulder to lean on."

About Rod with a Twist:

"Rod with a Twist" is a boozy woozy doozy of a video series with actors, jocks and local celebs bellying up to the bar with bon vivant Rod and master mixologist Nick for irreverent interviews. It's a lil' freaky and a lotta funky with conversational twists and turns that dance right up to the edge…and then joyfully right over it. Too far? Probably. But after a few of Nick's drinks, does it look like Rod cares?"
