Corporate executive dating
“"No little boy in a candy store with a sweet tooth.” The process to sign up starts with an online application and fee.
The application is similar to a dating site: it includes biographical information, family history and of course, photos. Janis requires one facial shot and one full-body shot (Remember the first two Bs? If you pass the initial test, you’re invited to either a one-on-one consultation with Janis or a group meet-and-greet.
My meet-and-greet took place at a nice restaurant in New York City’s Upper East Side (I spotted a few cuties at the bar when I arrived.
Mental note: Come back here later for after-work drinks.) The meet-and-greet consisted of Janis, Carly and six single women. My questions ranged from whether I cooked to what God I prayed to.

Here’s the catch—if you happen to marry or enter a long-term relationship with your match, you must shell out additional “success fees.” And if you want some great love advice (for free), Amber says actress Julianne Moore put it perfectly in a January interview: “You have to make your personal life happen as much as your career.” Selective Search Founder and President Barbie Adler knows a thing or two about making the perfect match – in business and in love.
Janis charges her male clients a fee of 0,000-0,000, 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.
Janis has been a matchmaker for over 20 years and has over 1,000 successful marriages under her belt.
