"We have high demand for marriage and 11 million bachelors who are increasing every day," Deputy Minister of Youth Affairs and Sports Mahmoud Golzari while launching the site on Monday.

"This is a significant issue for the ruling system," he added.

The website,, provides a platform for singles to post their profiles and specify what they are looking for in a potential spouse. A board of mediators matches applicants after reviewing their age, education, wealth and family background.

"The matchmaking website you are seeing today is not a website for introducing boys and girls to each other," he said. He added that he hoped the website would serve as a model for other Muslim countries.
