Priceless partner dating
The £6,000 fee I paid is at the lower end of the London introduction agency range. Discretion and privacy are understandably sought by all involved, making it hard to get a reliable gauge of the success rate of these services before joining — or even indeed how they operate.
My expensive dating journey began when I’d found the occupation I loved, bought a house and resettled in London, only to find the big piece of my life still missing: someone to share it with.
Most of my London social set had settled into family life by the time I returned, and I knew I needed to consider other ways to meet a partner.
I soon eschewed online dating, which struck me as too time consuming and unpredictable.
For years, people did not seem to know who they were meeting online, where photos and profiles could be notoriously misleading. Tinder interacts with Facebook, making it more likely that you will identify others you know when dating online.
