A doctor is suing a luxury dating agency after she was linked to a man who was less than six feet tall.
Eileen Moore has demanded a $4,995 refund for her entry fee and a letter of apology from Elite Introductions.
She took her case to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribune, where she claimed the dating agency had linked her to a man named David who did not meet her height requirements.
“I didn’t expect them to find love for me, I expected them to find me a man who met the criteria I wanted,” she said Thursday.

Elite Introductions has offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The chief executive is Trudy Gilbert
dr. Moore was looking for ‘Mr Right’ when she joined the exclusive dating agency in 2019.
“I was at a stage where I was ready to settle down, get married and start a family,” she said.
“I was a career woman, I was 36 … I was ready to start the next chapter of my life.”
The international company has offices in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. The chief executive is Trudy Gilbert.
The dating agency targets well-trained professionals who are looking for an ‘intellectual, financially secure and confident partner’.
dr. Moore said she was looking for a candidate who was of Australian/Irish descent, raised Roman Catholic and taller than six feet.
She explained that height was important because the rest of her family was tall and she was considered small.
The tribunal heard Dr. Moore explain her requirements to the agency’s “psychotherapeutic adviser” Lisa Hayes.
She claimed she was then contacted by Ms. Hayes, who claimed to have found a suitable suitor who was “ready for a relationship.”
Mrs. Hayes had Dr. Moore told David that he was abroad at the time and later only said the couple were “about the same height,” the tribunal heard.
dr. Moore said she was “stunned.”
dr. Moore took her case to the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribune, where she claimed the dating agency had linked her to a man named David who did not meet her height requirements.
dr. Moore said she felt obligated to meet David, but didn’t see him a second time.
The doctor claimed she tried several times to contact Ms. Hayes, but got no response.
Tribunal member Danielle Galvin suggested that Dr. Moore would make a private settlement and doubted she would get her money back.
dr. Moore hopes to get the $4,995 refund and letter of apology in addition to legal fees and extras for alleged deceptive behavior, bullying, and breach of oral contracts.
Her case will return to the stands in February 2022.
