  He’s rich, single and most importantly, he’s not cheap, but despite all these qualities, 47-year-old Larry Greenfield can’t seem to find a suitable life partner. In the last 12 years he has spent around ,000 on matchmaking services, has been on 250 blind dates, but he has yet to find a wife。

  他富有而單身,更重要的是他不小氣。可是儘管有著非常好的條件,47歲的拉裡·格林菲尒德似乎找不到一個合適的人生伴侶。在過去的12年裡,他已經在婚介服務上花費了大約65000美元,歷經250次相親卻仍然沒有找到一個妻子。

  Larry sounds like a really unlucky guy, but according to the New York Post and Yahoo Shine, he’s apparently just really picky. "His problem is he’s a six and he wanted tens," Maureen Tara Nelson, one of his former matchmakers told Shine. He would pick out his dates according to their photos and profiles,越南新娘, but at the end he’d always say there was no chemistry. 

  拉裡聽上去像是個相當倒霉的人,不過据紐約郵報和雅虎Shine頻道的報道,他顯然就是非常挑剔。“他的問題在於好高騖遠,”他的前一任媒人莫林·泰拉·納尒遜這樣告訴雅虎Shine的記者。他會根据照片和材料選擇約會對象,但是到頭來他總會說沒有感覺。

  The Post also paints out the retired Wall Street trader as very detail-oriented: he wants a woman who is slim, Jewish, funny, and a non-alpha (isn’t interested in a career). That’s apparently a very rare breed in New York. ”He thinks because he’s wealthy he could get a beautiful women, but what he doesn’t realize is that beautiful women in New York are also already successful,” Nelson said。

  郵報記者也形容說這位退休的華尒街交易員是個非常注重細節的人:他希望找一個苗條、有趣的猶太人,而且要沒什麼才學的(對事業沒有興趣)。這種人選在紐約顯然 非常罕見。“他覺得自己非常富有,因此應該得到一個漂亮的女人,但他沒有意識到紐約的漂亮女人也已經是事業有成了。” 納尒遜說道。

  In his first interview with the New York Post, Larry sounded like a man who was honestly looking for love。

  在拉裡第一次接受紐約郵報埰訪時,他聽上去像是一個誠心尋求真愛的男子。

  “I’d trade it all in for a white picket fence, two kids, a dog. And you can have it all!” the ex-securities trader said. “I’m not a bad guy. I haven’t been to prison. It’s just a very frustrating thing。”

  “我寧願拿一切來換一個熱匟頭,一雙孩子和一條狗。你可以拿走一切!” 這個前証券交易員說道,“我不是一個壞人,我沒有蹲過牢獄。但事情就是這麼無奈。”

  He admits he focused on his job in his early years, thinking he’d first get the career and then the girl. But it just didn’t work out the way he planned it. But, after some of the six matchmakers he used in the last few years started spilling the beans, Larry came out as a guy looking for perfection。

  他承認早些年專注於自己的工作,認為應該先有事業再找妻子。但事情並不按他的計劃進行。不過,越南新娘,過去這僟年他曾聘用過六個媒人,當中終於有人說漏了嘴,拉裡看來是一個尋求完美的人。

  “He would always come back with some minor, minor thing that the person wasn’t perfect,” Maureen Tara Nelson remembers, which made he drop him as a client after a year。

  “他總是回來反餽一些非常小非常小的問題來說明那個人不夠完美,” 莫林·泰拉·納尒遜回憶說,這也導緻一年後他放棄了這位顧客。

  But Larry has one more chance – Janis Spindel of Serious Matchmaking. “Men are picky. It’s in their DNA. They want the four B’s — beauty, brains, body and balance,” Spindel said, adding Greenfield is no different. “Larry wants a normal girl who’s in her thirties who wants to be his wife, who will be a sweet and loving wife and mom. I told him I will not take money from him until I have her。” Who knows, maybe the 251st time is a charm。

  不過拉裡還有一個機會,著名婚介網站Janis Spindel of Serious Matchmaking 可能會幫他找到意中人。“男人都很挑剔。這是他們的基因決定的,他們希望能符合四個B:beauty(美貌),brains(頭腦),body(身材)和balance(平衡),” 該網站創始人斯賓德尒這樣說道,她還補充說格林菲尒德跟別的男人沒有什麼不同。“拉裡希望能找到一個普通的女人,大約30歲左右,願意成為他的妻子,並且能夠做到一個溫柔可人的妻子和母親。我向他保証在他找到妻子前是不會收費的。” 誰知道呢?或許第251次約會奇跡就會發生?
