“I was working 60 to 70 hours a week and simply didn’t have time to keep up with online dating,” he said.

Clients are sent weekly emails to alert them of numbers we’ve scored or, for Platinum clients, when and where to go for a date we’ve arranged.

But I was at the point where I was only able to return messages sporadically, which obviously didn’t go too well with the matches I was interested in.”“I found myself wishing there were two of me,” he continued.
