That’s why many women are going old school when it comes to love and turning to matchmakers. There are several matchmakers out there, but all matchmakers are not created equal.
Based in New York City, Janis Spindel is a veteran matchmaker who caters to the elite.
"On all the major dating sites—OKCupid, Match.com, and e Harmony—it’s the same story: Black people—including professionals—have the lowest response rate out of any group," Tona tells me.
"They spend the most time reaching out and expressing interest, but do not hear back from the people on the other end." Race plays a significant role in a person’s success on an online dating site, as data repeatedly shows.
Janis charges her male clients a fee of $100,000-$500,000, so it’s no wonder she calls herself the “Rolls Royce of Matchmakers.” Janis and her daughter Carly offer what they call “upscale matchmaking services for marriage minded men and women.” She promises that she gets what men want and says that 5% of her clients marry their first introduction while 97% of her clients are in a serious relationship by their sixth introduction.
