On-line dating and matchmaking have become a huge business. It seems people have almost given up on meeting their significant other through old fashion dating and meeting people sporadically. With the influx of dating services available, help is certainly out there.
In Vancouver, Canada, matchmaker Janis Spindel has been hired by a Canadian millionaire to find his perfect wife. He’s looking for a woman who is “28 years or older, very attractive, well-educated, sophisticated yet understated, upscale and professional… non-smokers, athletically inclined and looking for a committed relationship” (The Vancouver Courier).
What he offers in return is a breathtaking home, a high profile husband in his 40’s who is a self-made millionaire and is from Vancouver. The search continues after Vancouver as Janis also scouts potential wives in Victoria and Seattle.
The Janis Spindel Serious Matchmaking services are a pretty penny, usually hired by only those who have small fortunes, or are willing to pay a small fortune. Her fees start at $100,000, but her services are kept exclusive.
She boasts a high success rate, matching 760 couples into matrimony, with 40 more in preparation of walking down the isle. She has been in business for 15 years and only sees the market growing in the future.
Spindel holds a highly protected list of exceptional women in a database, who are looking for Mr. Right. They would have paid $1,000 for a 30-minute interview to be included in this catalogue. They could have also gone the less expensive route by having an interview with one of her assistants, putting them back $500.
The company also holds events like the signature intimate dinners, where singles mingle with other singles. 16 men and 16 women are invited to dine on a rotating four course meal and find their match.
If you are interested in putting yourself out there for this Canadian millionaire, here are the rules:
– be living in Vancouver, Victoria or Seattle
– apply by calling Spindel’s office to arrange a pre-screening interview (212- 987-1582)
– meet with Janis at the Sutton Place Hotel on June 21, 22 or 23rd
