Online dating site offers ‘wing-man’ service for a price
Have you tried looking for love, but struck out?
For the right price, online daters can pay for a “wing-man” or dating specialist to help find love.
E-Harmony, a popular online dating site, is launching a new service for that provides a dating specialist.
The price is $5,000.
E-Harmony already costs money, about $60 per month for members.
For the extra money, the online dater will get a personal counselor and matchmaker with the mission to find him or her the perfect match.
The specialist will do all the legwork, including sorting through profiles, holding Skype calls and even interviewing potential dates.
According to the Wall Street Journal MarketWatch, many say they are willing to pay for the high-priced service.
The combination of an old-fashioned matchmaker with an online dating site could have the potential for success.
