Match dating costs

Perhaps not the selection of suitors she was hoping for. Touting itself as a ‘personal headhunter’, Kelleher International has been serving the lonely elite since 1986.

Still, the legal spat has thrown light onto the dating habits of the super-rich, and an agency which most of us would have to remortgage our houses and sell an organ to afford. It was founded by Jill Kelleher-Andrews after she noticed a gap in the market amongst the rich and wealthy.

Kelleher describes its typical clients as “smart, successful and elegant.” Wealthy must also be a given, considering the service starts at $25,000 a year. Doing a local search in your area (sort of like Happn, but an ‘elite’ version), will set your back an initial $25,000 - and that’s just to find local singletons.

If you’re travelling away on business, adding a second city will cost you an additional $5,000 each time.

Since its founding in 1991, It's Just Lunch has arranged over 2 million first dates around the world.
