The initiating party can choose to reveal his/her identity. If both parties believe they’re compatible, the matter will be handed off to either those parties or their representatives.

They will then be either matched with another candidate seeking marriage, or their profile will be filed until a compatible profile is available.

If both parties feel they’re compatible, they will be given the option to reveal their names, contact information, and personal references to the other party, and the matter will be handed off to either those parties or their representatives.
