Dating successful people
Daniels told the , “where people could interact with each other on a higher level.” Ms.Daniels is the face behind Samantha’s Table, the matchmaking service that caters to clients who are, according to its site, “ultra-successful, ultra-busy, ultra-cultured [and] ultra-educated.” They’re people without the time required for e Harmony or the low standards required for Tinder. She would target “successful, high-end people” looking for “real relationships,” she explained. Daniels launched the first iteration of The Dating Lounge as a Facebook app around two-and-a-half years ago.Daniels explained, there are “also members of the Lounge who make under 0,000, but are ‘high-end’ because of their job or their social connections.” They’re also looking for daters who will “mix well with other members”—people who have jobs, education, and friends in common with existing users.Finally, invitations will only be extended to single people looking for meaningful relationships—i.e., no sleazy married guys looking for some fun on the side. Daniels offered up some advice on how a “wealthy, high-end” person can make a good first impression. “People in The Lounge already know you are accomplished.But after countless users begged her for a mobile version, she’s now debuting the The Dating Lounge for i Phone.Certain aspects of The Dating Lounge—which, for now, is free to use—will be familiar to those who’ve tried their hand (and hearts) at other forms of online dating.From simple revenue models to familiarity with their customers, niche dating site creators believe they have a handle on their specific market.

“And a guy should always get there a little early to secure a table,” she added.
Received a match who you think is great, but not for you? There’s also a section of the app where users can seek advice from a matchmaker; they can choose to keep their questions private, or let them be published on the Dating Lounge’s blog. Daniels said, “is emulate what I have going on offline, which is a high-end strategic matchmaking service.” One of the trickiest parts of The Dating Lounge is getting in; after all, it’s an invitation-only group. First off, anyone who was a member on Facebook will automatically have their membership transferred to the mobile app.
Then there’s the possibility of getting in through a friend; know someone who’s already in The Dating Lounge, and they can send you an invite.
