Loveless lawyer sues high-end dating agency

By ninemsn staff

A New York lawyer who paid nearly $12,000 to a high-end dating service is suing the company after they failed to find his dream woman.

John Friedland, 51, filed a $100,000 lawsuit against the high-priced Amy Laurent International dating service after being unhappy with the women he was paired up with, the New York Daily News reported.

The dating service, which bills itself as "the coveted wing girl that every single guy envisions", failed to provide him with three "appropriate dates" each month, Mr Friedland alleged in the lawsuit.

The women he was set up with allegedly were all either in relationships with other men, unsuitable "to his goals" or wouldn't consider someone with his "background" – which is a lawyer.

Friedland said in the suit that he believed advertisements that described the agency as "akin to having a stylish, savvy female friend constantly on the prowl for you".

He filed the lawsuit after the agency refused to refund his $12,000 payment.

Agency founder and former model Amy Laurent, who has made frequent television appearances as a dating expert, said she would be in contact with Mr Friedland to try and have the suit dropped.

"There's only so much I can do," she said.

"I don't have a magic wand — I'm a matchmaker, not a therapist."

The Amy Laurent International boasts of a near-perfect track record in setting up couples but Friedland alleges the luxury agency wasn't as good a service as a standard dating service.
