Does anyone have any experience with professional matchmakers like Zwei or Partner Agent or IBJ (or know someone that's used someone similar)? I'm based in the US but interested in all things Japan and recently stumbled across these services and am trying to understand them. Seems like a ton of these matchmaking services have been popping up in the country and I'm wondering why they seem to be so popular. Any insights would be appreciated! Thank you!
One of the reasons would be the existence of the traditional nakōdo system.

And the increase in the non-marriage rate would be another reason recently.
