Berkley international dating agency
Sometimes my love life feels like a late night trip to the fried chicken shop.
Tinder, hook ups and one-night stands are the ultimate in fast food dating – fine if that’s what you’re in the mood for, but unsatisfying and guilt-inducing if not.
UK-based matchmaking service Berkeley International will open an Irish office, targeting busy careerists such as those in senior financial industry or tech jobs who can afford the hefty annual membership fee.
The other party gets the message pretty quickly, and that’s the end of that.
As it happens, although I had a lovely time with both men, I felt pretty ambivalent about seeing them again, and told Jo as such.
Despite this, it still stings a bit when I hear that one of my dates agrees with my assessment.
And – here’s the crunch – it costs between £10,000 and £50,000 to join.
It sounds like a mind-boggling amount of money to me, but with 12 offices around the world and more to follow, they’re clearly doing something right.
