Sameera Sullivan Matchmaking Reviews [Includes Cost!]
A former national executive recruiter in the air/space/naval industry, Sameera Sullivan is no stranger to the art of matching people with their dream jobs. But do those skills translate when it comes to matters of the heart?
These Sameera Sullivan reviews should help you decide if this is the best elite matchmaker for you!
Sullivan's dating service was initially called Lasting Connections back when it was founded in 2012. She has since rebranded as Sameera Sullivan Matchmakers.
It is headquartered in Portland, Oregon with branch offices in New York and Houston.
Sullivan specializes in matchmaking for “high net worth individuals.” She only personally works with 10 clients per year. Members of her matchmaking team each work with 4 to 5 clients at a time.
She also prefers to take on clients who have the ability (read: money) to meet matches in multiple cities. If you’re not able to travel, she will refer you to a matchmaker near you.
According to an interview with Biz TV, Sullivan also collaborates with a network of matchmakers across North America, Europe, and Asia.
How Much Does It Cost To Hire Sameera Sullivan?
Women can join Sullivan's matchmaking database as free or priority members by filling out an internet form and submitting a photo.
Priority members can pay a one-time fee and will be considered for matching with paying clients before free members.
Priority members will also have an hour-long interview with a matchmaker, and can attend members-only mixer events.
Men join as paying clients. They are then matched with free and priority members in the database. They may also meet women the recruiting team approaches at events, sports games, etc.
Sameera Sullivan does a lot of the recruiting herself, sometimes at places like Starbuck’s and P.F. Changs. She'll also cold call people on LinkedIn if she feels they may be a for a client.
Membership packages start at $45,000 and go north of $250,000 for a year’s worth of matchmaking services and a year’s worth of “freeze” time. Freeze time can be used to pause the search to explore a promising relationship. Membership costs are paid up front.
Pricing varies depending on what type of matchmaking service you’re looking for, how difficult it may be to find someone matching your criteria, and how many cities you’d like to date in.
Sullivan offers single city searches, as well as regional, coastal, national, and international ones.
Some of the luxury matchmaking packages also include recruiting events held specifically to find matches for you, like this one advertised on her Facebook page:
Other Lasting Connections Services
She also has a “Post Divorce Program” for men, which she described in an interview with the Observer. The 2-year program costs between $100,000 and $250,000 and consists of 12 basic steps:
- Initial phone consultation with Sullivan.
- In person meeting, usually over a meal, where Sullivan will evaluate your personality, mannerisms, and how you present yourself.
- Based on that, she’ll accept you as a client (or not) and you’ll sign a contract.
- Home visit. She wants to make sure your bachelor pad isn’t hurting your chances.
- Image consulting. Sullivan will check out your wardrobe and personal style and make recommendations as necessary.
- Personal shopping.
- Professional photo shoot.
- Bio, which will be shown to potential matches.
- Sullivan will select 5 profiles of women for your consideration.
- You go on one date per week.
- Sullivan provides feedback from each date, so that you can continue to improve how you present yourself.
- Sullivan will offer long-term relationship advice and dating coaching as needed.
In addition to matchmaking services, Lasting Connections also offers image consulting and date coaching. That costs between $6,000 and $25,000.
Don’t want to pay the 5-figure price tag for the matchmaking service?
You can use the Lasting Connections “Love Atlas” app, which costs $299 per month for guys. It’s free for women.
Like many nearby singles on a map in real time. That lets people see matches who are “geographically desirable.” , this one shows
In fact, that’s how it got its nickname “The Zillow of dating.” If there’s mutual interest, a matchmaker will initiate contact between the two of you.
Everyone on the app has been pre-screened via Skype by a matchmaker.
So is Sameera Sullivan’s elite matchmaking service worth the cost, or should you consider a more affordable option?
Sameera Sullivan Reviews
Although they’ve gotten quite a bit of media attention, you won’t find many online reviews of Lasting Connections or Sameera Sullivan Matchmakers.
That’s not a bad thing, though. Customers who had a negative experience with a service are usually more likely to actually take the time to post a review.
Sullivan’s matchmaking process seems to be working well for her. And if her services don’t qualify as “budget busting” for you, she could be worth investigating further.
But if having to put down a significant chunk of change before knowing whether or not you like her matchmaking style gives you pause, you may want to consider a dating service that offers a little more flexibility - at a more affordable price.
