Would you fancy dating a millionaire or an aristocrat? What about a Hollywood star or a member of royalty? Lady Lara Asprey runs an exclusive dating agency called The Sloane Arranger, and she’s set up all of the above with potential love matches.
Explaining where she got the idea for her ‘posh dating agency’ from, Lara explained on This Morning: “To be honest, the idea is supposed to be quite tongue-in-cheek, it’s not taking itself terribly seriously.
“But it did it came about because I realised I had so many fabulously gorgeous single friends, and I thought, ‘What on earth is going on here, why are you not meeting somebody?’
“I think it was coming about because they were going through the run of the mill online dating or perhaps not giving online dating a go.”
“I found myself getting into a routine of saying, ‘I know someone for you, so and so is now single…’.
I’m massively nosey, and I love asking people about their love lives… And I found myself just getting into a routine of saying, ‘I know someone for you, so and so is now single…’.
“I’ve been developing [my black book] for about ten years and it wasn’t till about a year ago I thought I could officialise this into a bit of a business idea. And having done so it’s been going very well.”
While on the show, Lady Lara also shared a number of dating tips for those hoping to find their perfect partner, including women being aware of flashing too much flesh initially, people using their phones too much on dates, and men paying for the first two dates.
