CatholicMatch has many more people on it, so that might be better to start. My friend that is getting married to someone he met from CM, was on Ave for 4 or 5 years and had no successful relationships from it.
I don't know where you are located in NH, but if you are within driving distance to Boston there are two churches with very active young adult groups there. And many relationships have formed from them.
Also, with the professional matchmaker, there is a chance that they won't have any more leads either. I bet if there are practicing catholic men in your area, they will turn to the websites before a costly matchmaker. Or does a matchmaker actually seek out people who are not contacting them? (Like seek out people by going to local events, bars,using contacts, etc)
I'm actually in Utah. ;) So, definitely not in (convenient) driving distance of Boston.
Before signing up with a matchmaker, I gather you are supposed to ask them about their clientele, and, if they don't have enough people your age and religion etc., you shouldn't sign up. In other words, they only match you with other people who are signed up with them.
But I like you're suggestion of CM. They seem to have a lot more people from here, and it's easy to check what members believe from their profiles. Thank you.:)
