Wealthy Ex-Trader Sues Matchmaking Services For Failing To Find Him The Perfect Woman

HitchA new dating site guides clients through every part of the dating process

It is said that money can’t buy you love, but to Larry Greenfield, a former securities trader at Opus Trading, it should get you somewhere after 12 years of paying for dates with and 250 women.Greenfield told the NY Post that he has paid 6 different New York City matchmaking services for their efforts to find him a wife, but it’s all been for naught. He’s paid fees around $10,000 a year, and plunked down $65,000 total, but he still hasn’t found the woman to go with the white picket fence he dreams of.

And what is he dreaming of? According to The Post Greenfield’s ideal is ” beautiful, thin, smart, Jewish, a sense of humour and from New York — but not an ‘alpha.'”

The matchmakers, on the other hand, say that Greenfield is too picky.

From The NY Post:

He complained when Barbie Adler, a matchmaker at Selective Search, set him up with a Knicks dancer.

“Do I seem like the New-York-City-dancer type of guy?” he scoffed.

He called VIP Life’s Lisa Clampitt’s women “West Village girls” who were too “artsy.”…

But the matchmakers said Greenfield needs to lower his expectations — and not rely only on his money to find love.

“In the outside world, he would not be able to get a date with that girl, because she was far more attractive,” blasted Nelson, who dropped Greenfield as a client after one year.

It’s rough out there. Now matchmakers are afraid to take on Greenfield’s case knowing that his woman may not be in their databases.

Maybe this piece in the Post will help him find her? All we can say is, good luck.
