Despite this, it still stings a bit when I hear that one of my dates agrees with my assessment.

I feel like I’m in the dating Olympics, and I’m going to get a row of zeroes from a panel of judges who will criticise my terrible small talk and the fact that I went to the toilet six times in three hours (tiny bladder).

As it happens, although I had a lovely time with both men, I felt pretty ambivalent about seeing them again, and told Jo as such.

It’s not old-fashioned necessarily – it’s nice.” As it happens – and this is probably more due to living in London than a lack of chivalry - both of my dates arranged to meet me in bars, rather than picking me up from my flat (although I’ve no idea how I’d have explained away the one-legged drunk who sometimes sits on my front wall if they had done. They were both much more interesting than I thought they’d be (for some reason, I was expecting a pair of soulless bankers who hadn’t left the office since the Royal Wedding).

My living arrangements aren’t exactly in keeping with someone who has 20K to burn). My attempts to pretend I’m the sort of person with money to burn failed miserably, but I don’t think they noticed.

But it was still very different to going on a date with a random bloke I met in a bar, or someone on Tinder.

Mainly because the emphasis was on getting to know each other – there was no expectation that we’d be going home together at the end of the night (as Mairead had already said “it’s certainly not a shag-fest”).And maybe that’s something plebs like me can learn from.The Big Short, the film adaptation of Michael Lewis' book of the same name about the causes of the financial crisis, opens in UK cinemas this weekend.It grew into the model agency it is today after a rise in requests from photographers, magazines and brands, the BBC reports.Some of the models represented by the agency have posed for Glamour, In Style and Numero magazines.It sounds like a mind-boggling amount of money to me, but with 12 offices around the world and more to follow, they’re clearly doing something right.Before I get ready to go on my dates, I meet Mairead to discuss my possible matches (Mairead deals with the international business, while the lovely Jo manages the London office and usually deals with local clients).Like everyone I’ve become so used to virtual interaction, and to an ill-defined dating life characterised with shades of grey, that the whole experience felt quite alien. We cushion our interactions with the opposite sex with euphemisms and half-truths, lest we hurt their feelings or they hurt ours.In many ways the experience was easier – a third party conducting things meant there were no miscommunication, and the amount of money people were sinking meant everyone was pretty committed to meeting a partner. We limit ourselves tentative text messages and emails so we never get hurt. That’s the point though – Berkley International is designed for the sort of people who have neither the time or the inclination to mess around.Tinder, hook ups and one-night stands are the ultimate in fast food dating – fine if that’s what you’re in the mood for, but unsatisfying and guilt-inducing if not.Plus, things seem to move so fast that every potential relationship is over before I’ve blinked.
