    Default matchmaker

    Hi teachers,

    when native speakers hear the word "matchmaker",do they first perceive the meaning of this word as the "person" who matches a male and female together or the "manufacture" which makes matches?

    Thanks

    My first idea is of a person who arranges marriages, or gets people together.
