Online dating profile consulting
One week prior to meeting Ally, I was on a Skype call with Leslie Moniz, founder of Swagoo, a woman-run online dating consultancy.
The San Francisco-based startup shares its name with a Beyoncé lyric and bills itself as "The Gentleman's Ultimate Dating Guide." Like Tinder Done For You, Swagoo starts with a consultation followed by profile writing and photo-consulting. reads like a luxury lifestyle blog and looks nearly identical to fancy flash-sale retailer Gilt.
"So if you're ready to finally get Tinder working for you to fill in your calendar with a steady supply of dates on demand, and do it completely on autopilot, then you owe it to yourself to fill out the form below for your 100% Free Consultation."After a 90-minute screening call, clients are ranked on a scale of one to 10 measuring their willingness to commit.
With the help of his team of data scientists, "wingwomen" (aka project managers) and ghostwriters, he promises immediate returns and eventual long-term happiness with women way out of his users' league.
In addition to profile-writing and photo selection, the team at Tinder Done For You will do some light photo retouching, provide cut-and-paste conversation starters and responses and arrange dates around your schedule.
The site promises to let users "skip the endless swiping and messaging, and instantly fast-forward to a calendar that's jam-packed with attractive women looking for a good time with a great guy."Tinder Done For You is part of a growing industry of third-party apps and services that promise to take the work out of online dating.
Today, you can outsource nearly every part of your love life.
