In partnership with Berkeley International

Let’s face it, Bridget had it easy. Finding Mr Darcy in post-lockdown London would have left Helen Fielding’s hero devoured by Alsatians without hope of netting her human rights barrister. Not least because he would’ve been a client of Berkeley International.

In the past we had work functions, high powered networking breakfasts and evening dos, heels and suits to net the men of our dreams. Try holding down a high-flying career from your dining room table or flirting over Teams and you’ll understand the challenges of dating today.

Which is where Berkeley International comes in…

Specialist elite dating agency and international introduction agency, Berkeley International offers an exclusive matchmaking service, helping their affluent members to find the perfect suitor.

Forget what you know about modern dating

At Berkeley International, they are rewriting the rules of what modern dating can look like. Their team of matchmaking experts work with you to really get to know you on a personal level, helping you on your way to finding love. 

Forget setting up an online profile, personalisation is key to what they do and it aids them in helping to pair like-minded individuals with one another. And thankfully, no pictures are ever exchanged because they believe that’s how snap judgements are made. 

The dating agency is known internationally as an exclusive introduction agency so you can guarantee you won’t find any one liners here.

Their members are discerning and affluent 

Their members are successful professionals, from entrepreneurs to lawyers, financiers to philanthropists, aristocrats to actors. 

And they all have one thing in common: they want long lasting relationships, not just a quick hook-up. Think of the Berkeley International as an exclusive private members club for professionals looking for love.

It’s all about exclusivity 

The agency is very exclusive so if you’re looking to enquire about joining, there is an interview-style process. Start off by enquiring – you’ll begin with an informal chat about what it is you’re looking for and they’ll be honest with you about whether you’re the right fit. 

Once you’ve been through this process, you’ll meet face to face with one of their experienced discreet matchmakers to learn more about you and your requirements. You’ll get down to the nitty gritty details, from whether you want children to whether you’re willing to relocate. It’s here that you’ll have a chance to learn how they work closely and confidentially with you to help you on your journey to finding love. 

Once this is over, it’s time for the introduction process. It’s here that you’ll work with the Berkeley International team to define your ideal person – the real specifics. This service is tailored to you and your personal needs. It takes skill and expertise, and Berkeley International pride themselves on boasting a 75% global success rate.

They also offer Private Executive Search for their most affluent and discerning clients who want their own dedicated bespoke headhunting service. Enquire with the team to find more about the process. 

Now onto the dating… 

First dates are always nerve wracking but Berkeley International is there to take the hassle out of every step. Their dedicated matchmakers will help you ease back into dating life, offering support and guidance through the first date. 

Communication is the key ingredient to all relationships, especially here. All members receive confidential and professional one to one introductions service throughout their membership, to ensure all of their needs are met to the highest standard. 

So if you’re looking for love after lockdown, Berkeley International might just be able to help you find your happy ending after all. No Alsatians, no Daniel Cleavers, just wall-to-wall Darcys.
