The ROI of Matchmaking and the Benefits of Finding Lasting Love

Barbie Adler, President and Founder of Selective Search

Is There an ROI in Finding Lasting Love?

High-performing, successful executives know the importance of delegation and outsourcing, but the notion that “time is money” shouldn’t only apply to your professional life. 

With limited free time, you entrust financial advisors to manage your portfolio and personal trainers to guide your health. So, when looking to share the incredible life you’ve built with someone equally as incredible, it’s time to consider enlisting the help of an exceptional team who can find you the exceptional love you deserve. 

Apply a ‘Business Plan’ to Your Love Life and Watch it Take Off

CEO-level clients need a “business plan” for romantic success that includes a vision for success, a defined timeline and a team of experts working on their behalf. That’s one of the many reasons I created Selective Search more than 20 years ago. Selective Search, now North America’s leading luxury matchmaking firm, uses Fortune 500 executive recruitment techniques to help single, commitment-minded CEOs find lasting love. Our approach has a striking 87% success rate— proof that when busy executives, with high standards but no time to waste on mis-matched dates, invest in a love “business plan” they reap all the rewards of outsourcing without the legwork, headache, and heartache.

Yield High ROI By Investing in Love

Being with the right person returns mental and physical benefits, increases happiness, and enables you to build a family legacy, demonstrating happy, healthy relationships for generations to come. Selective Search pairs our clients by first focusing on deep connection. Just like any strategic acquisition plan, we remove as many barriers to success for our clients as possible. It’s an ideal solution for CEOs and other business leaders looking for exceptional people with whom to share their incredible lives. 

At first glance, high-end matchmaking service fees may give love-seekers pause. At Selective Search our membership fees start at $25,000 and are frequently well into the six-figure range for highly customized programs. As the leader in our industry, we take matchmaking for our elite clients to a new level as our seasoned matchmakers conduct customized searches vetting all potential matches to ensure they are emotionally available, align with our clients’ long-term goals and share similar lifestyle habits and expectations. By allowing us to do the hard work of dating, our clients often say the first date feels like the fifth date with both parties having the confidence of knowing they are already aligned in their values, preferences, and dreams for the future. 

After engaging with Selective Search, it’s clear to our clients that the value of finding strong and lasting love is life’s best ROI. Afterall, love is the only thing worth everything. Become a Selective Search client and find your true love today at https://www.selectivesearch.com/.
