Dating Site EHarmony Adds A Counselling Service.
New York: Dating site eHarmony has added a counselling service to its offerings similar to the one Ben Stiller's character shelled out 500 dollars for in 'The Secret Life of Walter Mitty.'
However, the real-life version will cost you 5,000 dollars a year, the New York Post reported.
The dating giant, whose aim was to make matchmaking so easy anyone could do it themselves, surveyed 15,000 members who earn more than 250,000 dollars a year.
They found that there was huge demand for a personal counsellor that can not only sift through matches but can also help you with your profile.
Grant Langston , eHarmony's vice president of customer experience, said the counsellor is going to have a lot of power and the service is designed to minimize the rejection and anxiety that comes with online dating.
