"A growing number of deep-pocketed continent- hoppers are choosing to “outsource” the soul-sapping searching and sifting elements to relationship “headhunters” — dating agencies that only the affluent can afford, such as Seventy Thirty, whose offices are in Knightsbridge, in the shadow of Harrods. Seventy Thirty has seen a jump in membership numbers in recent years, something its staff attribute to customers “reflecting on what is important to them” during the economic turmoil — and relationships come high on that list."

But Seventy Thirty does more than just set professionals up on a date. Susie Ambrose finds that many clients benefit from services such as life coaching, image consultancy and date coaching”
