‘Millionaire matchmaker’ who charges Britain’s wealthiest singletons up to £12K to find love reveals how one client bought his date a trip to Paris BEFORE they even met
- Caroline Brealey, from Nottingham, founded Mutual Attraction seven years ago
- Now she charges between £4,500 and £12,000 for her matchmaking services
- Headhunts dates by attending five to six professional networking events a week
- Says some high wealth individuals can’t find love as they’re too picky
A millionaire matchmaker has lifted the lid on the dating lives of the wealthy, revealing how one client booked tickets to take his date to Paris before they had even met.
Caroline Brealey, 34, from Nottingham, founded Mutual Attraction seven years ago after she turned to a professional matchmaker while looking for Mr Right herself.
She found that the services on offer were ‘old-fashioned, really cheesy and dated’, prompting to set up her own dating agency.
Now she charges between £4,500 and £12,000 for her services and helps men and women – who are mostly in their 30s and 40s and working in high-powered jobs – find their perfect match.
Although Caroline advises her clients to avoid flashy places for a first date, her male clients often take women for drinks at the Shard or at Mayfair’s Dorchester Hotel.

She told The Sun: ‘One man made this big romantic gesture but the woman found it way too intense.
‘They met for dinner and he said afterwardsm “I really felt I was going to have a connection with you, so I’ve booked tickets for us to go to Paris tomorrow”. She was actually really freaked out.

‘They did go to Paris in the end, but they went a couple of dates in. So it backfired on him a little bit, she was like “way too much”.’
Caroline and her three employees find matches for clients with other people who have signed up for the service and attend five or six different networking events a week to ‘headhunt’ for dates.
Caroline says it is their job to challenge people who come to them with very specific criteria for what they want in a partner
Mutual Attraction staff advise their clients to avoid flashier dates as they can be intimidating but men often take their dates to the Shard or Dorchester Hotel
The staff can struggle with some clients who list some very specific traits they want in a partner.
Caroline, 34, explained that sometimes the reason clients haven’t met someone yet is that their criteria for the person’s height, looks, earning and where they live is too rigid, saying her matchmakers are there to ‘broaden horizons’.
As well as her matchmaking services, Caroline also runs an online academy to train budding matchmakers from the UK to China.
Caroline said: ‘Some people will try to be like “I want someone better looking because I’m paying for this”. But either that person is going to date you or they’re not, they’re not going to suddenly want to date you because you paid me money’
Mutual Attraction promise to help their clients find ‘genuine’ connections through the service.
Caroline added: ‘At the end of the day, love is love and if you are serious about finding someone it doesn’t matter if you are paying us £2,000, £4,000, £1 million.
‘Some people will try to be like “I want someone better looking because I’m paying for this”.
