My living arrangements aren’t exactly in keeping with someone who has 20K to burn). My attempts to pretend I’m the sort of person with money to burn failed miserably, but I don’t think they noticed.
But it was still very different to going on a date with a random bloke I met in a bar, or someone on Tinder.
In many ways the experience was easier – a third party conducting things meant there were no miscommunication, and the amount of money people were sinking meant everyone was pretty committed to meeting a partner. We limit ourselves tentative text messages and emails so we never get hurt. That’s the point though – Berkley International is designed for the sort of people who have neither the time or the inclination to mess around.
And maybe that’s something plebs like me can learn from.
Our members are highly eligible successful singles who are looking to meet a like-minded equal.
They enjoy being active, leading a healthy lifestyle, travel frequently, are open minded, enjoy cultural…“I tell my clients to think of me as a well connected friend who can introduce them to other like-minded compatible singles.
Before I get ready to go on my dates, I meet Mairead to discuss my possible matches (Mairead deals with the international business, while the lovely Jo manages the London office and usually deals with local clients).
“People are more discerning now – they care about wealth, family background, DNA,” she explains.
I assume when she mentions DNA she’s referring to genetic disorders, but I’m wrong: “They want to know what their kids are going to look like – they want to know what gene pool they’re going to be in. People put invest in it so they can meet someone like them. The birth of mobile phones, social media, tweeting texting and chatting online have changed human nature. And that culture has spread into the dating world – people want what they want.” The agency is designed for cash-rich, time-poor people who don’t have countless free evenings to spend scouring bars, or online dating sites, for a potential partner – they want to cut to the chase.
The set-up is distinctly old-fashioned, as Mairead explains: “We introduce you to a few people, and if you want to meet up, and they want to meet you, then we give the guy your number.
The agency was set up 12 years ago by former hotelier Mairead Molloy when she saw a gap in the market for a high-end, personal dating service.
