Can't Buy Me Love

Janis Spindel bills herself as "America's No. 1 Matchmaker" and takes credit for nearly 1,000 marriages due to her "uncanny sixth sense." Her usual fees are $250 for a half-hour group consultation and $1,000 for a 30-minute one-on-one, but recently an Indiana man spent over $100,000 to fly Ms. Spindel in from New York. For $10,000 she'll take you out for an evening that includes dating and fashion advice, some wingmanship, and a little friendly behavior modification.
