LIZ JONES: Rich Pickings in My Search for Mr. Right -
She’s a Self-Confessed Hyper-Fussy Divorcee. So What Happened When Liz Jones Joined the World’s Swankiest Dating Agency to Hook Herself a Millionaire?
“Until now, I always thought people who resort to dating agencies must be a little desperate... then I meet Mairead Molloy owner of UK Berkeley International. I agree to meet Christie Nightingale, from Mairead’s sister agency, Premier Match (in New York). Between the two agencies I am to meet a few men from both sides of the pond.
My chat with Premier reveals straight away how different the dating scene is in the U.S. Christie goes over the gentleman I am to meet; she hopes very much that I ’enjoy him.’ I agree to meet the gentleman, he arrives at the restaurant, he is indeed tall and dark, resembling none other than Mr. Big. At first, I believe I may not fancy him, but after a few minutes, and much to my surprise, I start to enjoy his company immensely. After two hours, we conclude our date; he gives me his card, and asks me to ring him if I’m ever in New York again. We say our goodbyes and he gallantly phones his driver to take me back to my hotel. As I am chauffeured through the streets, I comfort myself with the realization that I could have landed my very own Mr. Big. I think, despite myself, I might just have pulled a millionaire!”
