The Founder

Six years following the sale of her first successful personalized matchmaking company, Noreen has returned to her true passion - helping people find their perfect match. Over the last 25 years, Noreen has helped hundreds of people find love, marriage, and lasting friendship, and she is thrilled to be able to bring joy and companionship to the lives of many more.         

The Service   

Cara, after the Gaelic word for beloved companion, practices the traditional art of matchmaking. Cara is not an online dating service, a series of personal ads, or a fad formula for compatibility; it is a real person who understands the subtleties and nuances of compatibility and chemistry. At Cara, you're more than a profile and a set of pictures.
