Instead of approaching the matchmaker with a blind eye for anyone but bankers, Daniels says women are requesting to be set up with men from a variety of professions — including, but not exclusively, guys who work in finance. She's receiving more inquiries for men who are in more traditional, yet well-paid, careers, like lawyers, doctors, and business owners. Interestingly, Daniels notes, "I find that people who work in finance tend to not want to date each other."
Men, on the other hand, continue to ask for women who "look like supermodels but have Harvard educations," except now they're concerned about being paired up with a woman who's also supportive. Daniels speculates that these guys witnessed some of their colleagues relationships blow up right along with the economy, and they want a partner who will stand by them through any economy.
