Dating services for good looking people
“As a person who’s always been complimented on [my] ‘stunning beauty’ …
I’d been searching for a ‘hot’ guy to match the label I had always been given,” says Young.
When it came to dating in New York as a 30-something executive in private equity, Dan Rochkind had no problem snagging the city’s most beautiful women.
“I could have [anyone] I wanted,” says Rochkind, now 40 and an Upper East Sider with a muscular build and a full head of hair.
“When men see beautiful women, they are more concentrated on how she looks because they want to ‘have’ her, and so they don’t want to go deeper and get to know her,” says Isabell Giardini, a 22-year-old Italian beauty signed with Major Models.
“And that’s why at the end of a date they wonder, ‘Oh that girl is so beautiful but so empty.’ That’s happened to me often.” Others say the stereotypes about pretty people being shallow are true, even if they’re hotties themselves.
“When I asked him why he loves me, he said that he loves my drive and my passion,” Young says.
Rochkind is equally enthusiastic about his decision to give up high-maintenance hotties.
But he’s quick to note that he’s not just a great set of abs — he also plays the violin and speaks seven languages.
“I gave him my card and said I have the perfect girl for him,” recalls Janis, founder of Serious Matchmaking, based in Midtown.
“Successful men who are in shape have the pickings when it comes to dating, [but] eventually they want a woman of substance.” Rochkind found that in Carly, 30, a lovely brunette who’s the vice president of her mother’s matchmaking company and a Syracuse University graduate. He loves that Carly isn’t like the swimsuit models he used to go for.
“I met some nice people, but realistically I went for the hottest girl you could find.” He spent the better part of his 30s going on up to three dates a week, courting 20-something blond models, but eventually realized that dating the prettiest young things had its drawbacks — he found them flighty, selfish and vapid.
“Beautiful women who get a fair amount of attention get full of themselves,” he says.
“When men get to a certain age, they realize that it’s important to meet a life partner that they connect with,” she says.
