You don't mean like Deuce Bigelow-type professional, do you?

I think I know where you can find those but I'd rather not say.

Here's a fun suggestion. A friend of mine went to one of those speed-dating gatherings. While she didn't meet the man of her dreams, she said it was fun. You didn't say how old you are but she is 33. It was a mix of professionals and "losers" she said. You spend 8 minutes with like 10 guys in one evening and I think if the attraction is mutual you take it from there. I looked one up for you..Try 8 Minute Dating.Com..they meet in what I think are nightclubs all over Jersey. Lyndhurst for example in North Jersey.

Doubt there's any left...I'm sure they're all fleeing to Nashville!

I was going to post a few Kanye West lyrics when I first saw this thread, but thought that might be overstepping.

Maybe she's just looking to network for business.

Possibly, though wouldn't she want to meet women too then?


For the OP, if you're looking to date, then the typical locales like bars, grocery stores, coffee houses, etc... could certainly be good to frequent. If you're in your early-30s or younger, then the scene in Hoboken might be what you're looking for.

I sincerely doubt that a businesswoman looking to network for business connections wouldn't already know how to do that.

If she's established, she already has starter connections and can easily go from there.

If she's straight out of the gate, basically her only option is cold-calling, as any college graduate knows. Or even high school graduate.

If she's hoping to call some businessperson and say, "Hi! I got your name from someone on the internet," she's pretty much guaranteed a slammed door, if not a call to Security.

I may be cynical, but I definitely don't think she's looking for business connections.

Now, as far as the OP, all kidding aside: You have few options except friends and the internet. If you know friends in the area, ask them if they know friends-of-friends-of-friends. Hold a housewarming party and accidentally manage to invite all these businessmen. As far as the internet: You're probably bound to (shudder) match.com or (double shudder) eharmony.com...or I think I saw a commercial for a new one...something about chemistry? They often list salaries there.

I personally wouldn't do this as salary was never one of my relationship requirements, but different things are important to different people, so I'm nobody to judge.

Default Meeting single men

Hi Nicky

I host speed dating events for Urban Socialites in North Jersey & we're having one on October 18th.

My website is listed in my profile--

PS -- not every woman is a gold digger!!! We ladies just don't want to get hooked up with boo boo the loser who still lives at his mom's house. Just so you understand what I'm saying, I work in the Financial services industry and I host speed dating events. That's how I met my current Fiance who's a Social Worker!
