Right after looking at the topic - "try dating services" ;)

 

Turning joke mode off - your situation is quite peculiar and what you would be actually looking for here is a "publisher". Since you yourself are unable to manage all these formal things by yourself, I would advise you to contact developers of similar size as you, with some experience in selling their games. Try finding small studios that already published a game or two on app store. I think you can pretty easily find one that will agree to do it for you free of some initial fee, just for the share in income. How big would this share be - it's up for negotiation, but since it isn't a lot of work on the "publisher" side, there's virtually no marketing expenses and you will be delivering a game that is ready, I personally wouldn't agree to more than 10%. But then again - I never tried to strike a deal like this and the actual numbers may differ greatly. Especially, that in your situation, you might not be in the strongest position to negotiate.

 

Good luck!
