- Miami-based matchmaker Claudia Duran spends her days trying to find love for each of her clients.
- Below, see snapshots from one of her typical workdays.
- Throughout the day, Duran bounces from working at home to private yachts — but she’s always home by midnight.
From the moment she wakes up until the moment she goes to bed, Claudia Duran has love on her mind.
Duran is a Miami-based matchmaker with dating service Elite Connections, and she works with the city’s more affluent singles (she charges $15,000 for a basic six-month membership and $75,000 for a global membership).
Duran said the growing frustration with dating apps has driven more and more people to her door. It’s a „nice excuse to hide behind,“ Duran said of online dating. She encourages people to make themselves vulnerable both in dating and in relationships, for example by telling someone you like them even if you’re not sure how they feel.
Her workday can seem glamorous — clients often take her on yachts and she holds meetings at fancy clubhouses. But work is work, and Duran is always on the clock.
Below, take a look at a typical day in Duran’s life.
Duran wakes up at 8. „I’ve never been one of those 6 a.m. people and at this point I just accept it!“ she said. She always chooses a song to get her ready for the day: „Fun chill music for the days I work from home early, or pumped up jams if I have happen to have a morning meeting or very packed day.“
Right away, she heads out onto her balcony overlooking the downtown Miami skyline and meditates. „I swear by and credit mediation for my intuition and clarity, which is essential for reading all different types of people and situations every day,“ she said.
Duran fires up the Nespresso, whips up a protein smoothie, and settles down to work from home, which involves matching and recruiting clients and setting up private consultations with prospective clients. Of her work uniform, she added, „I wear shorts because it’s Miami!“
