Online dating consulting services

Both businesses provide dating consultants who pump clients for crucial information about who they are and what they’re looking for, then spend hours scouring various online dating sites on the client’s behalf.The number of matches — and the nature of the services — depends on the fee you pay (which can range from $147 a match to $1,200 a month for the full dating monty).

“They handle the logistical aspect of it so you can focus on meeting people,” says Rick, a 37-year-old marketing executive from Miami who asked that his last name not be used (he’s currently using one of these services).

“Going through different profiles and sending out e-mails is purely mechanical work.

For somebody as busy as I am, sitting down and doing that is not productive.” Cyber-Cyranos Outsourcing one’s love life is nothing new, of course.

Edmond Rostand wrote about courtship via a third party in his 1897 play, Cyrano de Bergerac (later made into the Steve Martin film, “Roxanne”).

The pictures, the preferences, the interminable lists of hobbies and favorite childhood memories – it’s no secret that sifting and sorting through hundreds of online dating profiles can be exhausting work.

“I’ve done it three different times and it just becomes overwhelming,” says Marilyn Heywood Paige, a 40-year-old marketing consultant from Philadelphia.

“It’s like a part-time job trying to filter and write and call and meet.” Thanks to the arrival of online “dating concierges,” though, overly tasked singles can now hand that job over to a third party, who — for a fee — will gladly do that heavy lifting.

“I was working crazy hours as a marketing executive, usually over 70 hours a week,” says Scott Valdez, 25-year-old CEO of Virtual Dating Assistants, which functions a bit like an electronic yenta.

“I was also online dating but didn’t have time for it.

So I found someone on Craigslist to handle my online dating accounts and it worked out great.

One day it dawned on me that there was probably a demand for this service for overworked executives who want to meet people but don’t have time.” Valdez followed his gut and launched the “dating management agency” in June 2009.

A similar business, Done For You Dating hung its shingle out right around the same time.
