Looking to marry a CEO or billionaire?
One dating agency is specialising is matching Silicon Valley Tech professionals with potential partners.
Founded in 2002, Linx is now responsible for more than 50 marriages, with billionaires, CEOs, financiers, and members of royal families all on the books.
Company founder, Amy Anderson, told the Daily Mail that she had noticed a problem in Silicon Valley with IT executives and dating. "They were CEOs and company founders-all perfect on paper-all, oddly single. They would ask me, Amy, where are all the great women?"
Linx is described as a "private offline dating and social network." While the majority of matches are made with persons living in the Bay area in California, Amy is now looking internationally for potential match applicants, who would be willing to relocate for love.
Speaking to the Daily Mail, Amy said "I had one British woman in investment banking who was matched with a guy who worked for a software company in San Francisco," says Amy. Both were in their 30s and he flew her out to the States to spend time with her. That happens a lot. Many of the male clients will fly their date out and put her up in a hotel while they see if that connection is there."
Match applicants for Linx must be college educated non-smokers. However , they do not need to be high flyers in their own right. The Linx database contains everyone from captains of industry to stay-at-home mothers. Similarly, a supermodel physique is not a pre-requisite. Amy tells the Daily Mail that she informs her clients "such lofty demands will inevitably remove around 99.9% of the global female population." Rather Amy works with members "checklists" to narrow down their desired match to more essential criteria.
