dating14_050_Marv Su, a 44-year-old vice president of marketing at Vindicia Inc.in San Mateo has hired professional matchmaker Amy Andersen of Linx Dating LLC.They frequently are too busy to devote enough time to online dating services.
The idea came to her back in 2001 when she herself was dating a man who had loads of buddies who were single bachelors sporting Ivy League degrees and high-powered careers but few romantic prospects.
"He is the quintessential Silicon Valley geek I had been searching for -- brilliant in every way, determined, an entrepreneur, good friend, non-game-player and totally commitment-minded," Andersen said.
Andersen hopes to work the same romantic mojo on Su, who has dated a couple dozen women through Linx in the past two years.
With one broken engagement behind her, Weich, in the words of "Bachelorette" contestant and new author Jen Schefft, would much rather be "single than sorry." She has an exciting, globetrotting career accompanying Chambers to meetings with the leaders of other countries and corporate America, a hyperactive social life with a wide circle of family and friends, and even time for charity work.
Weich says she is definitely not on a biological clock countdown and is prepared to take her time in finding the right person.
Andersen takes them from geek to chic by revamping wardrobes and grooming regimens ("clip nails, shave the beard, meet my hair guy for a new do") to boost their confidence and their chances of impressing their dates.
