Romance for Dummies

If you are ready to find a new relationship but you just don’t know how to go about it, now might be the time to call in the calvary. There are numerous experts who can help you on your way to finding romance.

New television shows like Bravo’s “The Millionaire Matchmaker” and “Matched in Manhattan” on Lifetime are signs of a resurging trend in the dating lives of successful singles who want to meet someone special but either haven’t found the time to date or just don’t know what they are doing wrong. Tango magazine reports that the industry is booming, with more than 1,000 private matchmakers in the U.S. working hard to help their clients find true love.

Unlike your parents or friends, a matchmaker will give you unbiased feedback on how you date. And unlike online dating, you’ll be spared weeding through endless profiles—a matchmaker with pre-select a smaller number of (hopefully) more compatible individuals for you. The price tag can be steep—anywhere from $7,000 to $100,000—but at the very least, you’ll learn more about yourself and what you really want in your quest for love. That way, when you do meet the one you want to spend the rest of your life with, you’ll be ready! [Tango]
