Wall Street's $25,000 Matchmaker Talks About Who's Hot

Wall Street's $25,000 Matchmaker Talks About Who's Hot

In the good ol' days, finance types had a leg up on the competition by simple virtue of their monetarily rewarding professions. Now, according to matchmaker Samantha Daniels, the playing field is a bit more level because of the economic changes during the past year. Daniels' services can cost upwards of $25,000 and, despite the recession, she says her business is booming because people are yearning for stability in their personal lives.

Instead of approaching the matchmaker with a blind eye for anyone but bankers, Daniels says women are requesting to be set up with men from a variety of professions — including, but not exclusively, guys who work in finance. She's receiving more inquiries for men who are in more traditional, yet well-paid, careers, like lawyers, doctors, and business owners. Interestingly, Daniels notes, "I find that people who work in finance tend to not want to date each other."

Men, on the other hand, continue to ask for women who "look like supermodels but have Harvard educations," except now they're concerned about being paired up with a woman who's also supportive. Daniels speculates that these guys witnessed some of their colleagues relationships blow up right along with the economy, and they want a partner who will stand by them through any economy.
