Silicon Valley bachelor

Handsome Harvard educated Bay Area Bachelor seeks Outdoorsy Animal Loving Match to Embrace Life with Together

iStock-667252186 copy.jpg

Our client is a handsome Caucasian male who’s 43-years old, 5’10”, with a nice athletic build. He keeps fit from regular hiking, mountain biking, weight training and bits of yoga. Wellness is very important to him. Originally from Connecticut, he’s very much at home here in California.

He’s undeniably intelligent, Harvard educated and successful, but also down-to-earth, approachable, and loves to have fun and laugh – especially playful sarcastic banter.

He’s had an eclectic career spanning a number of industries and roles. Most recently though, he realized his true passion is helping people get healthy and has spent the last few years in leadership roles at healthy food companies.

You can just as easily find him leading a company, spending time with friends and family, or going on outdoor adventures with his five and a half year old vizsla.

Our clients vizsla….adorable!

Our candidate is an empathetic, compassionate, direct communicator, in touch with his emotional side and unafraid to communicate it in caring ways. He’s definitely a bit of romantic and gives his whole self when in a relationship. He loves to travel and has been to at least 50 different countries, with dozens more on his wish list.

Favorite places so far: The night sky in the Maldives, the top of Mt. Whitney, Yarra Yering winery north of Melbourne, Borobudur Temple, the Whitsunday Islands, the wine in Saint-Emilion, his couch and a good Netflix series.

He approaches all aspects of life with creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, and doesn’t believe there are problems that can’t be solved. He believes you should always treat people fairly and equally, regardless of background. You can be absolutely drop-dead gorgeous, but if, for example, you treat service people as second-class citizens, he can’t be with you.

He would love to build a family and believes raising children will be the most important thing he’ll ever do – creating wonderful human beings and teaching them to go out and help change the world for the better. He learned that from his parents and wants to do the same for his children. Most importantly, our candidate is inherently happy and likes being around other happy, uplifting people.

His best suited match is between the ages of 28-40 years old. At her core she is highly compassionate, caring, and a giving soul. O. Henry’s book, “The Gift of the Magi” is a great example of the type of relationship our client strives for. Where two people give more to each other than take from one another.

As our client is into health, fitness, and overall wellness, it’s important that his match share a love of balance and healthy living too. In terms of physical appearance, she’s fit, naturally attractive, and isn’t greatly influenced by “keeping up with the Joneses”. She’s comfortable in her own skin, isn’t driven by money, highly altruistic, and looks forward to love deeply and to be deeply loved in return.

Summer’s Newest Linx VIP!

Our boyishly handsome Caucasian bachelor is a very successful, active, and intelligent man in his early 50s whose easy charm and laid-back demeanor offer a counterpoint to his professional role as a partner in a prominent local law firm where he focuses on high-profile, high-stakes litigation. At 6’0″ tall with short salt-and-pepper hair, warm brown eyes, and an easy smile, this thoughtful man possesses all of the quiet strength and chivalric charm that you’d hope to find in someone with his deep Southern roots.

Away from the office and the courtroom, you can often find him with a camera in hand as he travels around the country, and beyond. He loves to travel, and makes a point to do it regularly, often making the most of his weekends by visiting Carmel, Tahoe, Napa, Santa Barbara, Sonoma, and plenty of other quaint and cozy spots that allow him to hike and bike through beautiful scenery, and then spend the evening at a great restaurant or resort. He’s worked very hard to get to this point in his life, and being able to share it with the right woman would feel like a much-deserved reward.

At home, he likes to cook and loves to entertain. He’s definitely a dog guy (he has two at home) and enjoys summer trips and holiday visits with his college-aged son. With the right woman he’s open to the possibility of more children (and would, of course, welcome any kids who are already part of her life) but would also be very excited by a future just for two that centered entirely around grown-up fun!

Are you a match?

Our bachelor would like to meet an athletic and beautiful Caucasian woman between the ages of 35 and 48 who is on the taller side (5’4”+) with medium to long hair (of any color) who has a satisfying career and a well established life, but is still interested in building a fantastic future with the right man. He responds best to warmth, sensuality, femininity, intelligence, stability, and enthusiasm. A sense of adventure, an active mind, and a desire for fun are absolutely necessary for connecting with this gentleman. (You must be willing to work up a sweat during the day, climbing hills or biking through Napa, but then still have the energy and grace to sit down to a great conversation and a white tablecloth meal that night.) Kids and pets of your own are certainly welcome, and you also need to be willing to enthusiastically embrace his. An appreciation for wit, sarcasm, and old movies would be a definite bonus.

Please contact Amy directly at amy@linxdating if you’re interested in meeting this exceptional gentleman. We will be screening candidates privately on his behalf at a five-star hotel on August 20th and 21st. There are absolutely no fees for this opportunity, so contact Amy today to see if you qualify.

VIP LETTER

I’m a Dreamer, a Doer, and a Serial Hugger

As a child, I loved building things and daydreaming. I distinctively remember one of these dreams I dreamt at twilight time during a family vacation on an island overlooking the Mediterranean. In that dream I remember juggling a big happy family and a thriving business. In that episode of the dream (just before my mom called me for dinner in the real world) I imagined celebrating a gorgeous summer day next to a lake with my future kids, my beautiful wife, our extended families, our best friends, and a handful of execs from my growing business. We celebrated life, love, human spirit, and doing-good. In that dream, my wife and I had just come back from an exciting trip to Africa and Asia, where we met fascinating people and helped bringing them valuable knowledge and resources. We were eager to share with our loved ones the fascinating stories from our trip about the wonderful people we met and helped.

I distinctively remember the smiles and laughs in that special celebration of giving and life. I also remember the joy I felt for bringing all the people I loved together to enjoy each other’s company, amazing stories, great music, delicious foods and lovely wines. The memory is so vivid that I can almost smell the beautiful flowers that decorated our reunion of family and friends. I’ve always liked making and enjoying art, and in my mind, every flower is a form of art that nature produces to celebrate beauty, giving, and the creation of life.

The art of creation has always been an important part of my life. I still remember the “Time-machine” I built when I was a child, which helped me daydream about my future. With my ragged desktop computer, using less computing power than I have in my current watch, I programed a simple app that helped me easily “assemble” exciting dreams about the future. Using this app I could instantaneously “jump” with my imagination to the all the countries in the world I always wanted to visit, to all the businesses I wanted to build, and to the happy family I wanted to nurture. The simple “database” I created included all the things I wanted to do and see and all the things I wanted to learn. With the logic I programmed into my Time-Machine, I was able to create fascinating imaginary life journeys that became the blueprints for my daydreams.

Weaving dreams was so much fun – it helped me create a vision for my future life as an adult. It was the best preparation for the adventurous, ambitious, and caring lifestyle I’ve adopted when I grew up. My Time-Machine helped me safely experiment, explore, and “experience” what a wide array of undertakings, challenges, and accomplishments would make me feel. I programmed my Time-Machine, and then it programmed me.

Once my Time-Machine worked, I was thrilled to share it with the many good friends I had growing up. I loved their feedback and ideas, and even more so, I loved how they used the Time-Machine I built to weave their own dreams, and sometime even combine them with mine. Dreaming together with friends and translating these dream to fun adventures we’ve gone through together, shaped who I am today in both my personal and professional life.

A few months ago, after a long run along the coastline in Rancho Palos Verdes, when I tried to imagine what my ideal wife and family would look and feel like, the sweet memory of my good old Time-Machine came up. With a big smile on my face, I decided to visit to my parents to try and find it, so I can take another exciting walk on memory lane. When I discovered that my parents donated my old computer and disks, which hosted my Time Machine, I was pretty disappointed. However, pretty quickly, that state of mind gave way to feeling great. In my heart, I knew that there’s a good likelihood that there’s at least one child out there, who now has access to my Time-Machine, and that it can give him or her an opportunity to dream big dreams. I was very hopeful that this child was adventurous enough to embark on imaginary daydreams too, and that she or he was foolish enough to make these dreams come true!

While browsing my childhood photos in an old album at my parents’ house, it became clear to me that the Time-Machines that my own children will build would be so much better than the one that I build as a child… And it must be so much better because my children will have not only the genes that made me a dreamer, a builder and a serial hugger, but also the genes of an incredible partner, lover and best friend – my soon to be wife!

About my Soon-to-be Wife (i.e., the Love of my Life):

So… fast forwarding back to the present, when I’m fortunate enough to have already had many of my dreams come true, it’s time to daydream again (this time without my Time Machine) to imagine who would be my dream wife? Well… the Love of my Life is one of a kind. She’s the most affectionate, loving and caring person in the world. One can feel her positive energy when she enters a room – she’s one of these “angles” who everyone deeply adores. She’s always honest, unconditionally loyal, romantic, and a bit of a dreamer herself. She’s adventurous, beautiful and full of life.

My future wife is very genuine and comfortable in her own skin. Everyone admires her because she makes them feel good about themselves when she’s around. She’s loved her family and has many real friends whom she keeps in close touch with, and she’s always there for people she loves. She’s great with children, has the sweetest heart for all beings, and she almost always smiles. She’s also very intelligent, wise and thoughtful, but very humble about it. In her work, and in her personal life, she’s responsible, diligent and proactive, but balances these with a genuine understanding that everyone is human, and a natural sense of humor that everyone loves. vip-shield

Are you a match?

Age:
24-32 years old

Physical appearance:

Caucasian, Mixed heritage, or European heritage
Taller the better! 5’7” is a fantastic height (5’4” minimum)
Slender/athletic/feminine and keeping in great shape
Natural beauty and beautiful eyes are the key to the soul
Keeps a healthy diet more than a diet rich in fatty foods. Balance is key!

Personality:
Above all else, you are a caring, compassionate, and a kind person.
You are positive, happy, and you do the right thing in life. You like life!
You were raised well and perhaps look to your parents as role models.

Occupation/Education:
You are responsible, independent, and educated. In terms of the industry you work in, it doesn’t matter but what does matter is that you have time to get to know our VIP bachelor and are not 100% tied to work. In other words, you honestly can say you have balance in your life.
Smart is sexy for our client so the more educated, the better.

Personal Goals:
You are positioned for a deep, unequivocal love and can confidently state you are ready for marriage and what that entails.
You can picture being married, having 2 + children, and living in the Bay Area (our client runs a successful business here and has large ties to Silicon Valley and plans to stay here).

Lifestyle:
You are unattached and are not in a current committed relationship. In other words, we ask that you NOT move forward with our process if you are dating someone seriously that has a substantial probability of progressing into an exclusive relationship. This can lead to a waste of everyone’s time.
You enjoy meeting new people, would be considered social, and would welcome new friends into your life (our client is social and would want you to be included in his full and thriving life.)

Match Me To!

If you could meet anyone in Silicon Valley or San Francisco whom you consider to be one of the hottest bachelor or bachelorettes, who would it be? You know there is someone out there that you either think would never go for you, or who might go for you but you don’t have access to him/her, or you are too shy to put it out there that you have a crush on them!

Getting linked and matched to your sexiest crush just got easier! Even if you aren’t a client of Linx, email me your wishes and perhaps we can increase your odds. Did you know that hundreds of brainy and successful young professionals email me each week inquiring about our invite-only matchmaking and about ways to fire up the engines of their dating life? We have thousands and thousands of names in our proprietary database.

Our clients submit their wish lists of “Match Me To’s” when they join. Sometimes one of their names is a client or in the database. In other cases, if it is a Linx VIP client, I will recruit outside the network to try to make their wish come true. This was the case today in my email correspondance with one uber successful Silicon Valley male CEO VIP client of Linx. He reached out to tell me how he knows of a gorgeous Fullbright Scholar whom he thinks is quite the cats meow. Although this brainy babe isn’t in our network (yet), I’ll take it as a chance to leverage our brand and reach out to her. 07BACHELORVILLE-superJumbo Photo is from a New York Times article June 2013 quoting Linx.

New VIP Search

Our VIP client is a youthful and very successful 46 year old man who is based in the South Bay. He is Caucasian, very fit,  cute, and leads an active, healthy lifestyle by starting his days out doing hot pilates. He’s been married once before and understands commitment.  In fact, he wants to be married again and looks forward to that. He is a father of 2 girls in college and now is in a phase of his life where he is looking for a partner to enjoy life with and have a ton of fun in the process.
He continues to pave the path in his field and maintains a serious discipline in running his highly successful business that he started some 25 years ago. He’s a leader, extremely ambitious, and has a lot of responsibility as CEO of his 125 (+) employee company. Our client also is very involved in investments and real estate development. In other words, our client has a serious business side. He is a well-regarded businessman and isn’t slowing down anytime soon. 81Cu6iYdrUL._SL1500_
When not working, he loves to unwind hot tubbing, over a good meal, playful conversation, or listening to music. He loves playing basketball, watching sports and Bloomberg, and always staying active.  He has his vices like yummy pizza but that is pretty much it for this squeaky clean sort of All-American, sporty guy.
What we admire about our VIP client is that he is very real, down to earth, and funny too. Conversations are unfiltered and honest- there is no game playing in his book and no grey zone. We believe, the right girl will help him slow down and relax. Remember that he’s going a million miles a minute during the day and a good match will creatively figure out how to help him stop in his tracks and smell the roses with her.
His ideal match is someone who is Caucasian, 30-45 years old, petite and slender. 5’4″ is the perfect height and she has a certain energy and charisma about her. She’s sweet, kind, happy, and in a genuine good place to fall in love. Although she is independent and has her own life and career, our client would take care of his match in a heartbeat. In other words, you would be spoiled and if you desire, your man would happily be the breadwinner.
Creative, soulful, passionate, grounded, and healthy are other important words that describe his perfect match. He’d love if you were a fitness nut too and love any chance you can to be outside, active, and healthy. Right now he wants to find his dream partner and develop a loving monogamous relationship with her. He is a new client of Linx and we look forward to hearing from you if you or anyone you know might make a nice match for this guy. Email Amy today amy@linxdating.com

Silicon Valley Culture

This once-in-a-lifetime success on such a grand scale is so completely unique for those in the Bay Area and specifically, Silicon Valley. Moreover, our Facebook and tech clients at Linx Dating are so down-to-earth and extremely private and this is just as attractive or more so than the quantitative wealth outcome.

The culture of the Silicon Valley, and companies like FB, do not encourage “showing off” wealth like some might envision. People here (regardless of their net worth) are simply low key. Newly minted millionaires and seasoned entrepreneurs don’t really talk about it. Sure, they might drive a fast new car but most are still wearing the t-shirts, jeans, and famous “hoodie” ala Zuck or black turtleneck ala Jobs.

In Palo Alto, anyone on any given day can walk down the street and rub shoulders with a ka-zillionnaire and never know it! The flash and excess doesn’t happen here on a level that some might think. The guy or girl you pass and lock eyes with on Hamilton Avenue leaving the popular Creamery for lunch could be the next big thing but you most likely will never know. They fade into the distance and head back to work to tinker away and code deep into the night.

In the Valley, you have these incredibly bright super star entrepreneur women and men focused on the next big thing, stocking their money away intelligently and figuring out how to create their next fortune. The VCs come piling in, offering term sheets, and currently there is so much cash flowing in the Valley with all the deals that it is THE time for a entrepreneur to hit the ground running and seize their dream.

When these successful young entrepreneurs and techies are out and about socializing, they often don’t mention where they work. If they did mention “FB”, “Zynga”, “Google” etc, so many people would anchor to that, fixate, and then it can become a slippery slope of ‘how many stock options do you have’, ‘how long have you been at the company’ ‘ what is your company’s exit’ and so forth. Instead, most will just “be”, hang within a trusted circle of friends they already know over beers at The Old Pro and if meeting a stranger will be the last to brag about options or wealth.

Importantly, it isn’t just the men who are making the $. We see so many incredibly successful females of all ages (lots of 20 somethings to 60s) who have “made it” coming into our Menlo Park offices. These women desire a guy who is with them for the right reasons, who might have a similar net worth where it simply isn’t an issue and when each respective person’s net worth is equal, it dissipates any possible tension and creates a neutral playing field. A situation where they don’t have to worry and instead focus on really getting to know one another.
