Meet the Silicon Valley matchmaker helping top tech executives find love
Finding the love of your life at 41, and trying to do so in the crazy bay area dating scene is hard enough, but when one turns to a matchmaker for help, it is always a great act of vulnerability. Amy Andersen, however, makes it easy to trust.
With a high level of professionalism and a friendly interface, Amy listens to and accounts for what you are looking for in a partner. There is no criticism, or cajoling to 'be more open-minded' or small put downs that people may be concerned about.
She doesn't tell you 'don't be so picky' which is more than I can say for many friends. I thought for sure I would not meet anyone, but in a very short time since our first interface she has connected me with two potential quality candidates.
The venue was great but traffic was snarled by Vice President Biden visiting that day and shutting down When I got there Amy did not recognize my name or introduce me, I was shoved to the girl next to her and she asked my name on the list. When I did not give her a business card she asked for a donation for further events? Gee how do I know someone does not pocket the cash for gas money?

Then there was the line for drinks with the staff stumbling over themselves trying to take orders and get cash for change. I had two guys cut in front of me without ever making eye contact. Not a very friendly crowd I thought they were a bunch of actors with no speaking parts. Amy, you need to have some kind of ice breaker or something to get the party started There are a lot of options to meet guys, but as most app daters know it can quickly turn into a second full time job.
I saw Amy quoted in a Fast Company article and decided to check out her site. She has an area where you can submit your information to be considered for her VIP clients. I decided to apply and Amy reached out right away. She has been very responsive and has asked specific deal breaker questions. We are also meeting next week in person. I have been very impressed with her thorough screening to find the right fit for her clients.
I appreciate that this saves time on my end too and am hopeful that it could lead to something great - getting matched to one of her high caliber male clients who are ready to find their person and commit! I haven't met a match yet, but I am excited and hopeful! So far I like the diligent approach and responsiveness of the founder. I noticed a lot of these reviews were based off of the Linx events rather than the actual membership.
To sign up, you have to fill in a pretty extensive form, one that really goes over your personal and professional life, and even asks to see pictures of yourself. Upon review, you'll be contacted for a meet with Amy and her team where they'll go over what you're looking for and such.
Now I won't say how much it costs, but I will say it's reasonable for what Linx does and that's a matchmaking service for successful professionals. I signed up not because I was lacking in dates, but because I wanted something different. My previous girlfriends I met naturally through friends or work, but the whole online experience led to a lot of first dates but not a ton of relationships. This time I thought why not try something that might lead to someone different that would be otherwise difficult to find.
Again speaking about my previous relationships, I basically paid for everything When it came to deciding on if I should sign up for Linx or not, I factored in the idea if I did find someone, someone who's a career women, you may actually not need to pay for everything such as travel where some might find it okay to go dutch.
Again, I don't want to sound like a cheap ass, I've paid for every dinner date I've ever had in my life, but this thought did come to my mind A lot I'm sure! So far I've been out with a handful of women and they've all been really pretty, smart, and very interesting!
After years of unsuccessful dating in San Francisco, Amy Anderson led me to my husband. Her intuition and passion are unparalleled! She spends time understanding each client's ideal partner, and it wasn't until I met with Amy that I really understood the characteristics I value most in a partner.
A few weeks after my initial meeting with Amy, my amazing husband walked into my life! Why settle for less? Amy was very thorough in her interview process, she took copious notes and my experience has been enjoyable so far. I would recommend her! Just sign up for OKCupid instead--really!
I'm in the general pool at Linx and have only had 1 match in the past year--a very poor quality match, I might add, who had absolutely no characteristics I had given to Amy. Each month she says she'll have a match for me the following month, and it never happens. If you're young, don't waste your time and money!!! Linx was dollars down the drain for me.
I'm a very attractive, fit gal in my twenties. Top-3 Ivy League degree. I have had NO problem getting dates with cute, highly-successful guys i. Perhaps if you're middle aged, divorced, with kids, and have a few million in the bank so that the high profile client fee 20kk is no big deal for you, Linx MIGHT work out.
But if you're decently attractive, not divorced, and below 40, go with OKCupid instead. You'll very likely get far better matches, and even better, it's free!
Silicon Valley looks to Amy Andersen for love, at $50, a pop | Fortune
This woman is a scam artist and her business is a sham. Be sure to read all of the hidden Yelp reviews as the comments are mind blowing and I am sure completely accurate. Giving out the full name of a female client and saying she was bipolar? How unprofessional and making it professionally and personally risky for anyone who has signed up for her so called "services". All talk - she charged me a four figure upfront payment and then used me to fill out her database of men. I went to a top bschool and she required me to refer her five "high end" men on top of my fee.
I sent her Bay Area hedge funders, tech executives - great men who were single and looking. After her promises of high end set ups in return she was going to allegedly connect me with some great guy who never materialized as he just decided to go exclusive with someone suspect.
I quickly sought a refund and to distance myself from this scam as it was clear she had mismarketed her services and connections and I did not want to be affiliated with this company - got a partial after work on my end but of course she walked away with a large chunk for doing absolutely nothing for me and a list of some of my contacts.
She uses people for their money and contacts to sustain her lifestyle and "image" she didn't go to a top tier school or have any sort of high end job herself. Amy started the company I subsequently discovered when SHE was single and looking and set herself up with her current husband through the "business" - questionable ethical business practices right there.
This woman is a joke and should be sent to the Better Business Bureau. I wrote this after seeing some recent PR article on her with the same old lies again - the charade must end. She caught me in a vulnerable period in my life and eagerly took my money and and used ME for my contacts.
Thanks for the loser set up - I wouldn't have done that one on my own I don't know how she walks around the Bay Area when you read the reviews here. People talk Amy - they know the reality of your scam. Subsequently after my experience, I heard other men tell tales of the scams she pulled on them for trying to extract fees from them - both men walked after bad initial experiences and did not engage with her and had words for others warning them about her failed attempts to pull money from their wallets.
Why is this Yelp review hidden? This should not be shocking to anyone who has ever dealt with Amy Andersen and "Linx". The truth comes out Linx Dating This business has been claimed by the owner or a representative. Learn more 43 reviews. Silicon Valley is also known for the passionate, hardworking, creative, and dedicated people who work at these businesses — all of which lends well to a successful career but not necessarily a successful dating life.
How do I go about doing that? Linx Dating is how they go about doing that. Knowing both areas very well, Amy pinpointed the problem: Amy then spent the next 3 years doing as much research as she could, using her business-oriented mind to get a better idea of the market and demand for this type of matchmaking business. Inonce she had all her ducks in a row, she quit her job at Merrill Lynch, launched the company, and never looked back.
While other matchmaking firms might accept anyone who applies, Linx has an extensive referral-based vetting system that makes their clientele stand out from the rest. Amy receives dozens of referrals every day and screens each candidate herself. After the initial screening, Amy sets up a one-on-one meet-and-greet, which she said is the most important part of becoming a client. Most importantly, Amy is determining if her company is the right fit for both parties.
Linx forgoes fancy matching algorithms for a more personalized, hands-on approach. Her unique matchmaking system combines the granular metrics of what the person wants in a date their preferred height, age, income, etc.
