N.Y. millionaire tells newspaper that matchmaking services are a ‘rip-off’
A New York securities trader who has spent more than $65,000 on high-end matchmaking services is calling them a "rip-off," the New York Post reported.
Millionaire Larry Greenfield, 47, of Long Island, told the newspaper that he has tried six different agencies in the last 12 years and has gone on dates with 250 women, unsuccessfully.
The matchmakers told the Post that Greenfield wants women who are "out of his league."
Greenfield told the newspaper he would trade his millions for a woman who is "beautiful, thin, smart, Jewish, a sense of humor and from New York — but not an 'alpha,'" a woman obsessed with her career. He said he wants "a white picket fence, two kids, a dog."
Greenfield said he has been set up with a Knicks dancer, West Village girls who are too artsy, and one whose looks were "terrible," according to the Post.
