Match refers to a single person who really is the perfect fit for you! In a matchmaker, it will make reference to singles who have a matching personality.
In a dating app like Tinder, a match is when you swipe right after checking a photo of a random user, and the other person also swipes right as well, meaning that you both like each other. You see a message saying: “It’s a match!” when you have shown interest in each other, then you can start messaging each other in private.
