A widower looking for a new romance is suing a dating service, claiming it dropped the ball on his love life. The New York Daily News reports that New York insurance broker Michael Fleischer filed a $100,000 breach of contract lawsuit against LastFirst, which bills itself as a “bespoke matchmaking service.” Fleischer claims that he paid the company $24,000 for its matchmaking expertise but was only set up on five dates over the course of a year and was not introduced to any “particularly special” women. The 60-year-old filed his lawsuit Thursday after LastFirst allegedly declined to refund his money. The company has not yet commented on his filing. Fleischer, who lost his wife of 26 years to lung cancer nine years ago, said he was tempted to sign up for the matchmaking service in hopes of having another shot at love.
