This paper develops a method for two-sided matching decision in the environment of incomplete indifferent order relations. The two-sided matching decision problem with incomplete indifferent order relations and matching aspirations is firstly described. In order to solve this problem, the incomplete indifferent order relations are converted into the generalized Borda number matrices. The matching aspiration matrix can be determined based on the model calculation on the reciprocal differences of generalized Borda numbers. On this basis, the weighted satisfaction degree matrices are set up. The extended relative closeness matrices are determined by using an extended TOPSIS technique. Moreover, a two-sided matching model is developed. The two-sided matching alternative can be obtained by solving the model. For the purpose of illustration, an example including sensitivity analysis is presented.
