I received a call from a gentleman the other week who explained that he had just spoken with a Denver dating coach/”matchmaker” who quoted him the following fees:
For a 6 month contract $7500
If he should marry someone she introduces him to she receives a $25,000 bonus
This is a person who has only been in this business a couple of years. There is absolutely no reason to pay fees like that. They are out of line in general and definitely out of line for Denver singles. Just because you pay enormous fees doesn’t mean you will have any more success in that service.
It seems like Denver matchmakers are trying to out do each other with over-the-top fees. This has nothing to do with the clients only how much money these people can make to top each other.
As the oldest Denver matchmaker (33+ years) and the most successful (300+ marriages), I do not even charge those extravagant fees. It just is not necessary. I have had more success for my clients since 1989 with a more reasonable investment than these pricey services. I offer more assistance and an open-ended contract than all of them and even with all of that feel there is a limit to the pricing.
Of course, if you feel that the service is more impressive or will be more successful if you pay more money, I am more than willing to take a larger fee…but that’s silly isn’t it?
