And, these events are a great way to find gainfully employed, passionate, driven people.Plus, it’s an environment where strangers are expected to approach one another for conversation and exchange information.Swider vets potential matches that are worth your while — kind of like a personal shopper.Talia Goldstein, founder of TDR, believes we’re caught in a kind of gray area where women are expected to take as much romantic initiative as men.
The company’s name is no mistake: It’s a play on the unwritten rule that you should wait three days before calling someone you like.So, Swider brought me to the networking event, at this nondescript Chelsea office building, to see her in action.Rather than set up gatherings herself, she’ll head to other organizations’ happy hours and business events after meeting with clients all day to source her match pool.There is some superficiality to it — she looks for men and women her clients have identified in part on physical traits. “I never want to make a guy think I’m flirting with him.But, more importantly, her clients ask for someone who’s passionate, honest, “not rude to waiters,” and capable of teaching them something. I need him to know what I’m here for.” When I asked her what made a good matchmaker, she didn’t say anything about knowing a lot of people.
