Q: I’m seeking your views and those of others who have used high-end dating organizations.I’m 37, male, straight and have had three long-term relationships since age 18.I’m a medical professional with inherited family wealth.I’m decent looking and outgoing but lately I haven’t been happy with my dating through contacts in my own network.Recently, I attended my university’s homecoming and reconnected with a guy who said he met his amazing girlfriend through an exclusive dating agency. His date said she’s a professional from a wealthy family and used the same agency.They were matched on different criteria, but ultimately discovered each other.Later that week, I got a text with a webpage and pass code.The company claims to match high-profile individuals in North America, and boasted successful marriages.
My mother said I’d be crazy to spend so much money to find my true love.
The process is intrusive in terms of divulging information about background and finances. On the Brink A: Readers, if you’ve encountered a high-level dating service, please share your stories.
If I proceed, she feels there will be no turning back because of the way everything is set up. In fact, if you have done very well dating on your own or with less expensive sites, let’s hear from you.
I have 30 days to get back to these people with a response. There are matchmaker services, which call themselves that, that are legal and credible and go to great lengths to find a true match for their clients.
The price varies, but I’m aware of a fee of ,000.
These are expensive businesses to run, and some charge what the traffic will bear.
