For people too busy to find love, there are uber hush-hush services out there to help you find a discreet, and equally wealthy, match. According to statistics, there are 70 single men for every 30 available women in Silicon Valley.Billionaires have found themselves in a very small, very elite dating conundrum - and we all know how time consuming and soul-sapping trawling through dating apps can be.For the right price, relationship ‘headhunters’ will take this cumbersome task off your hands, mining their quarry of elite singletons to find you the perfect match on your behalf.This week, Kelleher International - the largest, privately owned matchmaking company in the US - made headlines after ex-QVC boss Darlene Daggett took the service to court over a string of terrible dates.The service, which has been linked to celebrities including Jennifer Aniston, reportedly introduced the head honcho to several unsuitable suitors - including a disgraced New York Supreme Court judge, a man who passed out from a heart ailment on their first date, and one potential partner who told her he was waiting on his terminally ill wife to die before he reentered the dating world.
Perhaps not the selection of suitors she was hoping for. Touting itself as a ‘personal headhunter’, Kelleher International has been serving the lonely elite since 1986.
