"One being one-night stands only, 10 being get married as soon as possible," with most coming in at a 7½ or 8, according to Valdez.
He says the majority of his clients are looking for slim, fit or athletic women -- they also tend to prefer brunettes to blondes."Beauty in general, obviously, is important for most of our clients," Valdez says.
After a phone call that covers your likes, dislikes and dating pain-points, your Swagoo Girl -- experienced but not slutty, according to Moniz -- will select photos and create a bio that plays to a woman's true desires (as determined by a market-research survey).
She'll then enlist an app like Bonfire that swipes right on any and all profiles, maximizing your potential matches; help you turn those matches into dates; and offer advice on where to go and what to wear."I wanted to start a service where I would Face Time with the guy, look in their closet and if I saw nothing, I'd send a Task Rabbit to go to Nordstrom to pick up an outfit to wear on their dates," Moniz says.
This is the first time I've spoken with Ally and, aside from the small thumbnail in her Gmail account, I have little concept of who she is or what she looks like.
By the time we hang up, though, she'll know more about me than many of my friends, family and co-workers do.
In all, a team of nearly 20 people worked on my profile. Apps like Grindr, Tinder and Ok Cupid use algorithms to take the work out of matchmaking.
Meanwhile, services like Tinder Done For You put the work back in, relying on sizable teams and large sums of money to find you a date.
Ally will then take what she's learned along with a zip file full of selfies and, with the help of a team of writers and consultants, create a better, more desirable version of me.

If I'd been a paying customer, Ally and her matchmaking minions would then get to work, swiping right, sending canned responses that apparently "work like crack to get women addicted to messaging you," and setting up dates.
Valdez says the ultimate goal is to get his clients off the service and into committed relationships; a process that he estimates takes about 12 dates in total.
Female clients, meanwhile, are more likely to list career, education and income as top priorities."If a guy makes a grammar mistake or a spelling error in a profile, like, they immediately get weeded out," Valdez says.
