Meet the Silicon Valley matchmaker helping top tech executives find love

Dating in any dense metropolitan area can seem like a herculean challenge, but try doing it in tech-savvy Silicon Valley, where scoring a date may be relatively easy, but cementing a relationship can be more difficult than raising another round of venture capital.

That’s where Linx Dating founder Amy Andersen comes in. While smartphone dating apps like Tinder, Bumble and The League have taken off since the iPhone launched in 2007, Andersen has established a successful business that seems downright counterintuitive, shirking complex algorithms for old-fashioned matchmaking. Over the past 14 years, the former Merill Lynch financial adviser has successfully paired hundreds of couples who work at high-flying tech companies including Apple (AAPL), Facebook (FB), Amazon, (AMZN), Google (GOOG), Netflix (NFLX), Square (SQ) and recognizable venture capital firms such as Andreessen Horowitz, to name just a few.

As Andersen sees it, Silicon Valley has its own unique pitfalls when it comes to finding a match. Many of these companies, whether they’re small startups or large, publicly-traded corporations, almost condition their employees to believe the mind can solve all complex problems, she contends.

“They are constantly using their IQ — naturally, as they should be — but, when it comes to matters of the heart, and where I fit into the picture for my clients, it becomes very challenging because falling in love and finding chemistry is about that emotional quotient, the EQ, and letting go, feeling, and really kind of feeling emotions,” Andersen adds. “It’s about people and connections and not necessarily a set of objective characteristics, tangibles or data that so many of these Silicon Valley types are used to.”

Andersen’s services aren’t for cash-strapped singles. The Menlo Park, California-based matchmaker has well over 50 premium clients who pay at least $35,000, and a “handful” of VIP clients, some of whom pony up as much as $500,000 for a series of hand-picked dates and coaching services. (Yes, really.) That’s in addition to the more than 500-plus, many of whom pay if they’re successfully matched up, as well as the 25,000-plus additional people in Andersen’s database.

One of her more recent successful VIP matches: a member of one of the ruling families of the United Arab Emirates with an Ivy League-educated entrepreneur. The couple, who married after only a few dates, welcomed their first child last year.

You have got to me joking me!

Seriously, is this what guys, who earn $1M/yr or whatever, are left with in America's new Wall Street, Silicon Valley ... a bunch of useless debutantes with gold digging aspirations who, on the average, will divorce at 50+% of the time, so that the guy pays childcare and then, only sees his kids, once a week or month?

Rin says
matters of the heart


What heart?!

If anything, the thing which characterizes Silicon Valley is the lack of it, as well as culture. Come to a place like Boston, and you'll see what a city with history & culture has.

Losers!

Seriously, I already had to drive away a Chilean visiting scholar up in the New England region, since as you know, I only boink Montreal hoes!

And believe me, she was a far higher quality woman than any of those American gold digging bitches lurking around Silicon Valley.

Wow! These men are multi-millionaires and are as desperate as some guy who'd just graduated from engineering college, who'd never kissed a gal in 4 years.

In SV, if you are a well connected and affluent geek male, you ARE the venture capital for the honeys looking for that Platinum Plus Credit Card and the manse in the rolling acres of Los Altos. Immediate pregnancy just anchors the money.

Poor suckers just know nothing about Rin Wah Law! They are dumb stick gold digger road kill.

It's certainly transparent but did you see some of those so-called 'hotties' in that video clip? They're at best, average! ... mainly washed up bitches in their late 30s who were riding too much cock during their 20s but didn't settle down with a decent guy back then.

Seriously, I'd been at conferences, universities, & institutes all over the northeast and other parts of the country and many women there were a lot better looking and yes, many of them even had MDs, MPHs, MAs, etc, and yes, the average (ahem) conversation wasn't .."valued added .." and fill in the rest of the b-school bullshit to appear to be business savvy.

These guys in Silicon Valley have got to be the biggest cucks of all time. They don't understand the value of $500K and the use of one's ... yes ... one's free time.

At least the regular east coast white collar professional, making a mere $100K-$200K, can get a woman w/o putting his portfolio into the furnace.

You see, the above makes sense. The Silicon Valley stuff, however, doesn't.

All true but basic game and an anti feminist confident anti sjw attitude still gets you plenty prime pussy. There's no natural game in SV only soyboy money and many womyn ironically are starving for men. Still if you're going to settle American I recommend the mid west.

When you're an actual millionaire .. this is the game, "Whatever ... I'll be banging a hot French-Canadian with big tits, in a few hours. Better get your act together if you want to hang with me"

This is in a way, a variant of the Beatles ...

"I go for that that rock and roll music
Any old way you choose it
It's got a backbeat, you can't lose it
Any old time you use it
It's gotta be rock roll music
If you wanna dance with me"

I would imagine Silicon Valley would be the romping grounds of pretty gold diggers. Anyone working for a startup with stock options could suddenly find themselves filthy rich.
The billionaires SV creates is just phenomenal.
I wonder if there is an ETF that invests in venture capital. Might be an exciting investment.

This is the problem ... it doesn't take that much money, to bang a hotter bitch than some worthless SV skank, outside of the region. And I'm not even talking about Quebec, where any average gal, is hotter than the middle 50% line in SV.

Why is it, that these well off guys, can't figure it out?

Seriously, these guys are losers and deserve to be taken to the cleaners.

It's bad. Late 90s I had an EE pal who had access to US Census Bureau data at a temp job - and he was a whiz with excel - did some quick calc and emailed me about my bad choices in life: At the time silicon valley had the worst male to female single woman no kids ratio in our late 20s age range. Worse than Alaska.

But here's the thing: There are essentially NO hot chicks in the SF bay area. You'd think with all that money there would be hot chicks! No.

When I moved back there after college and saw some guy who could pull down some tail in other parts of the country get yelled at in a Safeway by some fat chick to, "Get me a cantaloupe!", where he responded, "Yes dear.", I knew I was in trouble. So glad my tech tour there is over.

Gold diggers are supposed to be somewhat pretty.

I'm not in the Bay Area often but the 3-4 times per year I am, I rarely see anyone I would rate above an 8.

In SoCal, I see 8-10s pretty much every 5-10 minutes just walking on the beach.

Folks, let's not all get caught up in the world of 6's, 7's, 8's, 9's. I'd already created a Raquel Welch/Sophia Loren thread on beauties ...

http://patrick.net/post/1315211/2018-04-11-here-s-the-true-standard-of-beauty-raquel-welch-sophia-loren

The point is that there are these guys, earning $1M/yr plus, who're basically dating a bunch of skanks, who would basically be lesbians at a normal college, since the regular good-looking guy there [ meaning in Gold's Gym shape with a decent haircut ] , wouldn't want anything to do with them, asides from doing homework. And I'm not talking about scumbag 'date rape' frat guys, I'm talking about decent men here.

The fact that with millions of dollars, these guys couldn't improve their lifestyles, tells me that they're a bunch of losers.

BTW, Priscilla Chan is ugly. And she's Silicon Valley's richest wife.



Even within the Halls of Harvard, she's not an attractive Asian-American woman.

For a contrast, here's Professor Jeannie Suk, both a Harvard Law grad and a professor there ...



So one doesn't have to be ugly, to be considered smart.

Because Hollywood. The bimbos know to flock there for their golddiging but not smart enough to recognize a potential "that little faggot, he's a millionaire" situation. Priscilla Chan, on the other hand, is smart.

Pris was already a 4.0 premed and thus, had a $200K/yr-$400K/yr career ahead of her. Hanging out with Zuck, however, gave her a stock option of cashing in at a higher number than a regular doctor's salary and so she took it. I suspect that part of it is that many other guys at Harvard, didn't give her the time of day. Realize, for every Pris, there's 2-3 Jeannie Suks on the campus.

FYI, Jeannie Suk also had a 4.0.

No, because a lot of ppl assume that an average woman at Harvard, is ugly because she's smart.

My whole point, pointing out Professor Suk, is that attending Harvard doesn't mean that one's an ugly woman.

So in reality, Zuckerberg did not score it big at HU. He happened to date an ugly woman, as he was dropping out. If that were the case, I could have easily dated ugly chicks and today, my hedge fund equity would be on the chopping board at a divorce court.

Instead, my work is all mine.

Obesity is a problem everywhere in the US (and many other western countries), lesser so in the bay area but then you get the SJW blue non binary dykes, feminists, and carreerrrr tank grrlz. Still, unless you have a yuge, unfixable looks disadvantage like midgetism or other genetic issues - we all know wommyn are equally if not more superficial ;) - or no game, and if you have a steady job and car, you can still get laid quite a bit, money or not.
