So it was that [...]

February 13th, 2014|

Ahh, new love. You’ve seen it in the movies, on television and amongst your friends — yet it seems so elusive.

Top matchmaker forms school for aspiring Cupids – NY Post

February 12th, 2014|

Lisa Clampitt stocks her Union Square office with red wine and chocolate — ingredients that can heal a broken heart or spark a new romance. In her line of work, she needs to be prepared for both. “I’ve always loved setting people up,” says the 49-year-old matchmaker, who runs the Matchmaking Institute, believed to be the only school for aspiring Cupids. “In New York City, a matchmaker could make well over $100,000 a year and create their own schedule. It’s a real viable career if someone is good at it.” Her parents’ own divorce started her lifelong obsession with connecting [...]

High-end matchmakers are mainstream and here to stay. FORBES has covered the topic, films have been made about them, there’s even a television show about those that demand big money for putting couples together. But one enterprising ‘relationship consultant’ is succeeding in business not only by helping others find love, but by helping others help others find love.

In Search of Love, Wall Streeters Get Help – NY Sun

August 2nd, 2013|

In what may be the most telling symptom yet of a frenzied deal flow on Wall Street, more and more bankers, lawyers and hedge fund types are outsourcing their personal lives. Young and old, rich and richer, overworked single people are increasingly relying on matchmakers to find them a suitable soul mate.

These are not geeks or social dropouts, but rather successful and attractive people who simply don't have time to look for dates. "Some guys are phenomenal catches" says Lisa [...]
