Frequently Asked Questions

Our Members & our Packages

Our membership base consists of well - educated, affluent, upwardly mobile global individuals who are seriously looking to get married. It is made up primarily of successful professionals, self-made business people, entrepreneurs, industrialists and celebrities from across the world. A Majority of our members are from the US and India, followed by a smaller number from Europe and Asia. What truly binds them together is the fact that whilst they are successful, well- travelled, progressive thinking, cosmopolitan in their outlook and belong to extremely cultured families, they are missing that one special person to share their life with. 

"I have a dream": On one hand Love is such a raw and powerful emotion and on the other it brings with it so much softness, anchoring, security, friendship and with the right person its truly magical. It’s not about being incomplete, it’s about someone coming into your life to make it even more beautiful.  

About 60% of our members across various age groups are looking to experience this “magic” for the first time. 

“Take a chance on me”: No-one gets into a marriage thinking it won’t be “forever”. However sometimes, despite one’s best efforts things don’t work out the way we would like them to. When that does happen it seems one’s world will come crashing down, the security that we knew wasn't so secure after all. Some people have the courage to walk away and with time and healing look at restarting life. They are the “believers”. Believing in the beauty of love and the magic that comes with holding the hand of someone you love. 

About 30% of our members are “believers” across various age groups. 

“Knowing me knowing you”: Life and experiences teach us a lot of things especially when we have had the wisdom of being 55+ years but most of all it teaches us resilience and acceptance. The ability to bounce back from adversities and to keep the zest for living life, laughing, sharing, dreaming and finding love again. It’s about accepting that very little in life goes as planned and believing in the power of “possibilities”. 

About 10% of our members are over 55 years and believe in “possibilities”. 

Age: 70% of our members are between 24-40 years; 30% are below 24 or over 40 years.

Location: about 50% are located across the US, 40% in India and 10% in Europe and the rest of Asia.

We essentially have 2 types of memberships which are then further subdivided into two options each

1. Privilege Suite: 

Our signature service designed for members where success and affluence are a given and the baseline is “nothing but the best” in life. This offering has no time limit and is as bespoke as it gets. It sets the bar very high for maintaining confidentiality and guarding the privacy of our members who tend to be industrialist families, celebrities and extremely successful professionals. Naturally, given the highly selective parameters, this search tends to be an extremely slow and refined one, with absolutely no specified number of profiles to be shared given the nature of what you are looking for - a compatible partner who will become your confidante and soulmate – a rare combination that is unique and difficult to find. 

The search is personally handled by our top matchmaker and CEO, Anuradha Gupta, who currently spends her time between New York and India, but having lived in Melbourne, London, Los Angeles and India, brings with her a lot of valuable personal experience and an “east-meets-west” perspective to understand where one is coming from. Her diverse background, along with an MBA and a background in psychology, uniquely equips her in understanding different personalities, something that is so critical in finding the right partner.

Privilege Suite members are looking for a certain affluence level as a given along with Anuradha’s direct involvement - the level of expertise that she brings to the personalized search as well as the hand holding that they feel is required, given their criteria.

There are 2 membership options within our Signature service:

The Summit: Starts with a video call or meeting with Anuradha who personally handles the search. In addition, there is a home visit by a senior member of Anuradha’s direct team to better understand your lifestyle, more about you and what you are looking for as well as meeting with your family. This also includes quarterly calls with Anuradha and monthly calls with the designated senior team member to review and keep a close watch on the search. 

Price available on request

The Pinnacle: Starts with a video call or face to face meeting with Anuradha who then personally travels and spends the better part of a day with you and your family on your home turf. This personal interaction enables Anuradha to connect you with someone who is not only compatible in personality with you, but also comfortably fits in with your lifestyle. The visit helps to get an essence of you and a broader understanding of your family beyond what is in your profile. The search is handled directly by her and she is your direct point of contact with regular conversations to keep on top of things and monitor the search very closely.

Price available on request

2. Premium Membership:

This 2 year membership is designed for the discerning individual who has an appreciation and fondness for the finer things in life. You are well educated with a global perspective and progressive mindset and looking to share life with someone who truly complements you. Since the focus is on the quality and the connect, there are no fixed number of profiles that are shared and in most instances premium member details are shared only with other premium members.

Within Premium membership we have two service offerings:

The Anchor: The process starts with you having a Skype call with a senior member of Anuradha’s direct team. The client relations team will be the point of contact for inquiries through the membership.

3 Lacs plus taxes / 4600 

The Sail: You have an initial video call with our CEO and top matchmaker Anuradha, to start the search. The search happens under her supervision with her direct team being your point of contact.

5 Lacs plus taxes / 7600

We wish there was a clear-cut answer for this. What is for certain is that it is a slow process and sometimes there can be a month or multiple months without a profile being sent. The speed of the search is determined by the criteria set up by our members who are generally very sure of what they want and often their defined parameters are not easily found!

We’d love to say that we find partners for all our members but unfortunately, we don’t have a magic wand. However, we are proud of our success rate of 35 percent. And of course, we are constantly working to turn the graph upwards.

Our Process & More

  • We offer bespoke, confidential and global matchmaking service based on value systems and personality fits.
  • We are essentially an offline search. Our member profiles are not visible online because, not only are some of our members very well-known, but also because we believe this space of our life is very personal and private.
  • Our Members consist of successful professionals, self-made entrepreneurs, celebrities and industrialists - ranging from those totally self-made to those born into affluence and a life of privilege.
  • We don’t work with biodatas because so much gets lost in an attempt to pen down who we are on paper. It doesn't do justice to one.
  • Our team likes to interact with members to understand their personality and get to know them better; their childhood, family members and their life experiences. Over the years we have found that getting to know members personally helps in increasing the matchmaking success rates significantly. As a result we provide a global outreach whilst still maintaining a very personalized and confidential approach, something which we are very proud of.
  • Our focus is quality over quantity, with a strong eligibility criteria that needs to be met to qualify to become a member.

No it is an offline, high-end, confidential and personalized search. The online element is just used to help you sign up and complete your profile, no matter where in the world you are based. We will then communicate with you directly via phone, e-mail or Skype and also send the match details directly to your account. You cannot login and see anyone else’s details other than what has been sent to you. Neither can anyone see yours.

  1. It starts with you completing the “apply for membership” form.
  2. Someone from our team will contact you to better understand what you are looking for as well as to understand your background.
  3. If you qualify, and further decide that you would like to become a member please let the Team member you spoke to know. We will then email you a sign up link, which you use to pay and create your online profile.
  4. No matchmaking happens until we have either met with you personally or have had a Skype conversation (depending on the package) to better understand what you are looking for.
  5. Based on our conversations, closely matched profiles are emailed to your account. Once both people say yes, only then do we connect you to each other via e-mail or phone, whichever works better for you.
  6. We place a very strong emphasis on feedback and really believe that you need to be very proactive in getting the most out of the search. We work with you for achieving your goal of finding a life partner, however the more feedback you share with us on the profiles sent the more we can fine-tune the search and the better the results.

Unfortunately we cannot divulge many details. However, it is not one absolute thing but rather a combination of age, education, income, exposure and mindset,etc. As there are people in different stages of life, there is a variance in our criteria too.

We wish we could say yes. Unfortunately, the most important things in life don’t come with a guarantee. Sometimes things work and sometimes, despite best efforts they just don’t. What we can guarantee is that we really do give it our best as there are few things as satisfying as seeing people meet their life partner through VFE. Yes, it does give us a big high!

No. At VFE we believe that when you are looking to get into a sacred bond like marriage, you will not lay the foundation on lies. As stated in our Terms and Conditions, VFE does not conduct criminal background checks on any of our members. There are a number of reasons for this including (but not limited to) incomplete or inaccurate criminal record databases. Background checks may provide subscribers with a false sense of security, and we do not want our members to have unrealistic expectations when using our services.

We strongly encourage our members to report any concerning behavior or information about their matches to We will investigate each and every report, and take any appropriate action that is necessary, including termination of a member’s subscription.

Please make sure to read the Terms and Conditions and the Privacy Policy before you sign up.

Our close knit team consists of people between 30-65 years of age from cultured and privileged backgrounds across the world who have gone through their own share of experiences. We choose to be a part of the team because we believe in what we do and want to make a difference-however small, in the life of someone else.

No. Our member information is confidential and we do not share it with non-members.

No. Because the search is built up over a period of time with a lot of effort and time that is put in to get to know the person and connect them to other likeminded people. There is constant fine-tuning based on feedback on profiles sent.

We’d love to tell you the lovely love stories that have started out at VFE but unfortunately that’s not possible because we are a highly confidential service, and maintaining the privacy of our members is a big responsibility and something we take very seriously. And yes, this holds true even if it means losing out on getting a new member.

Since our members are spread all over the world, we do have members from diverse faiths and communities in our pool. Whilst we can work with the faith of your choice ( realizing sometimes that it makes the search very slow) we only cater to communities in the Privilege Suite. Please be aware that we do not work with caste and sub castes.
