THE CUT - Apr 7 - Meredith Golden is a psychotherapist-turned-dating-coach. She spends her days swiping and messaging on behalf of her single clients. When JDate launched, she got a reputation for being a savvy dating-profile writer. Since then, she has helped several friends find their matches online. She started charging for her services two years ago, when strangers began asking for her help. Golden works with no more than a dozen clients at a time. She is especially successful when she poses as a straight male client. A lot of guys on dating apps never sack up and ask for a first date; Golden makes her (client's) move right away. She is not doing anything untoward, she insists. All she does is swipe, message, and set up first meetings; clients show up to the dates and take the communication from there. Clients pay Golden $900 for the first month of her services, $700 for the second, and $500 for each month after.
