New $5K counselling service can spare you the awkward parts of online dating
New York – Dating site eHarmony has added a counselling service to its offerings similar to the one Ben Stiller’s character shelled out 500 dollars for in ‘The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.’
However, the real-life version will cost you 5,000 dollars a year, the New York Post reported.
The dating giant, whose aim was to make matchmaking so easy anyone could do it themselves, surveyed 15,000 members who earn more than 250,000 dollars a year and found that there was huge demand for a personal counsellor that can not only sift through matches but can also help you with your profile.
Grant Langston, eHarmony’s vice president of customer experience, said the counsellor is going to have a lot of power and the service is designed to minimize the rejection and anxiety that comes with online dating.
