4 Dating Deal-breakers Shared by Top C-Suite Execs

A-List photoAs Columbus, Ohio’s only high-end personalized introduction service, A-List Introductions specializes in working directly with the area’s top C-Suite executives and business owners. We thoroughly vet, interview and then introduce the city’s most eligible singles; creating chemistry and making hundreds of connections. Part of our success is attributed to having our finger on the pulse of what our clients need. We recently asked 25 top C-Suite executives (male and female), who are currently single, to share with us their dating deal-breakers:


Work-Life Balance

Work-life balance is a relentless struggle for busy business professionals; especially compounded when juggling a professional life with dating. Maintaining an equilibrium and keeping their professional and personal life separate is critical. Our 25 single C-Suiter’s expressed a common train of thought: the desire to meet someone who is supportive and understanding of the time and focus allocated to their careers. Demanding and chaotic schedules, delayed responses to texts/phone calls – they happen; intolerance and a lack of empathy are a huge red flag and subsequent deal-breaker.


Confidence is a definite prerequisite for dating a successful C-Suiter. There is nothing more beautiful than a confident person! While a commanding and cocky attitude may be attractive to some, our single C-Suiter’s prefer someone comfortable in their own skin; versatile with a positive attitude, capable of holding their own in social-settings.


Meeting someone self-reliant with their own life (interests, hobbies, friends, etc.) and an established career is essential for dating a successful C-Suiter. They desire to meet someone independent who complements their world; someone ambitious who possesses the wherewithal to challenge them in a positive and productive way. Needy, co-dependent, complacent personalities are a definite deal-breaker.

Healthy Lifestyle

Our 25 single C-Suiter’s were all in agreement that a healthy lifestyle is a significant requirement. Healthy habits – being active, eating right and maintaining a positive attitude are must-have qualities. The #1 dating deal-breaker was NO smokers.

Columbus is a city known for innovation and being the launching pad for many successful businesses. A-List Introduction’s unique and innovative approach to introducing the city’s most eligible singles is yet another success story. Nicci Sprouse, President at A-List Introductions, has brought to Columbus, Ohio the high-end dating services and philosophies, until now, only reminiscent to that of larger cities nationwide (Chicago, NYC, LA, Seattle, DC, etc). In fact, WSYX ABC6/FOX28 and 614 Magazine are calling Sprouse, “Columbus’s Millionaire Matchmaker”. Our clients (execs, CEO’s, attorneys, physicians) are successful and cultured; anonymity and time is of the utmost importance, which makes their strategic partnership, personalization and methodology essential in allowing them to focus on their professional career while A-List concentrates on their personal lives.


February Feature Interviews

Sprouse was interviewed as the Q&A feature for February’s issue of 614 Magazine. This 4-page feature interview caught the attention of many successful singles! Sprouse was also interviewed for the Valentine’s issue of Cbus Chic, the only lifestyle publication for women in the Columbus area. We consider it an incredible honor to be interviewed in two reputable Columbus publications.

The event was a huge success with 70+ women of all ages in attendance! Eligible ladies were vetted in a cocktail party atmosphere by Sprouse along with 3 local celebrity co-hosts: Bob Capace – Owner, Worthington Jewelers; Shonda Lewis – former client of Patti Stanger’s from last season’s Millionaire Matchmaker on Bravo and successful entrepreneur/Founder of Rock Star Bikini; Chris Vanocur – Senior Reporter for WSYX ABC 6.

The 3 women chosen were formally introduced to the bachelors the following week.  WSYX ABC 6 and FOX 28 filmed an exclusive during this event that aired on February 18th with huge viewer ratings.
