Dr. Emil Chynn, a successful ophthalmologist who runs a Park Avenue LASEK eye surgery practice, is offering to fix up the face of whoever manages to fix him up with the girl of his dreams. There is a small catch, though – Chynn is probably the pickiest bachelor in New York.
Even after paying tens of thousands of dollars to various high-end matchmaking services, and even offering to make a $10,000 charity donation in exchange for a romantic introduction, Emil Chynn has yet to meet his dream girl. But he’s not the type to give up easily, so now he has come up with another outrageous compensation plan for would-be matchmakers. The New York doctor promises to offer his professional services to whoever manages to fix him up with girls that match his strict criteria. He recently attended a networking event where he exchanged business cards with virtually all the participants. After compiling an extensive mailing list he sent a mass email to his new containing the details of his bizarre reward system and the dating parameters matchmakers must abide by.
For a first date, Chynn will pay a $100 dollar reward to whoever sets it up. If things go well, and they go on a second date, the matchmaker will receive $200, or a free eyelash-enhancer Latisse treatment. The third date reward is $300 or a free Botox session, for the fourth he offers $400 or free Juvederm injections, and if he gets to a fifth date with one of the candidates, the lucky Cupid will receive either a free Lasek surgery on one eye worth $2,000 or $500 cash. It sounds like a sweet deal, especially if you know a lot of single women, but wait till you hear Dr. Chynn’s requirements.
For Chynn to even consider going on a date with a woman his matchmakers suggest, she has to be between 27 and 35 years old (ideally 28-34), “Caucasian (not black, not Hispanic, not Asian)”, “Skinny (i.e. dress size 0-2, if you don’t know what that means (many men don’t) it means very skinny)”, “College graduate (doesn’t have to be a great school, but needs to have finished the degree)”, she must not have kids, but to want kids in the next 1-2 years, and live a healthy lifestyle, “defined as no smoking, no drugs, good diet, no hard drinking”. She must also be a Christian, someone who has spent time outside the US and lives in a city with over 1 million people, and she has to like pets. “These are my Hard (Objective) Dating Parameters which are NOT Flexible,” he wrote in the mass email. “This means I am only willing to pay for introductions if ALL these criteria are met, if you want to set me up w someone missing 1 of these criteria, I may accept, but will not pay for that.”
As you can imagine, the results so far have been disappointing. Ever since he sent the email, Emil Chynn has only had to set-ups, which he rejected because they didn’t meet all his requirements. “I’m not crazy,” he told the New York Post. “I just want someone who’s the right age and same the same sort of education and we’re compatible and loves me for me.” Good luck with that…
