HUFFINGTON POST - June 4 - Men make up the majority of a high end matchmaker's clients. Women are generally not the clients but potential matches for the men; and in most cases, they simply pay an application or interview fee. Matchmaker Richard Easton charges his clients $50K to find the life partner. He does offer a $10K starter rate for young Wall St. and Silicon Alley/Valley types as well. Janis Spindel launched her agency in New York 11 years ago, then set up an office in L.A. after going there to produce the TV show based on her life, "Miss Match." In order to get on the "roster," women must be very attractive, fit, be either book smart or street smart, and have a successful career of some sort. Most women are under 40, with some exceptions. FULL ARTICLE @ HUFFINGTON POSTMark Brooks: The demise of matchmaking services was predicted, with the rise of idating services. But the opposite is happening. Users are getting used to opening their wallets to find love. When they don't find love through idating, they open their wallets further, for fuller service offerings. But, high-end matchmaking services offer great service but are flawed for lack of choice. Dating sites on the other hand are flawed for lack of service. I'd like to see dating sites offer a membership to matchmakers to enter their clients and represent them.
