It’s time to stop thinking in terms of romance and think like a businessman or a businesswoman. It’s time to get over that date cork, and pick up a business card. (But don’t do it in front of your friends, because that is an absolute no-no. The money of the relationship should always be on your own side. Put on a card and hire that sucker for professional services. Yes, they’ll whine about it a little, but they will fall in line like little schoolgirls.) Ok, so you’ve decided you’re ready to “settle down” with your perfect match and find happiness ever after, you’ve found some short-term backup options, and you’re ready to start the search.
In this series, we’ve told you how to get a date, and how to do it right. We’ve covered the ins and outs of finding someone compatible, creating a date worth checking out, and picking up the phone or reaching out to the one you see online, but we haven’t talked about making sure you choose the right company for the job. There’s nothing like getting to know someone for the first time in person only to find out they’re an idiot. So, with the help of our Best Match matchmakers, we’ll help you choose a dating site that will deliver the goods. It’s time to be a businessman or woman of business.
Step One: Choose Your Dating Site
Now, pick your poison. A few of the sites have been working since the 1950s (no, not Match), and are still operating without any real changes, while a new crop of sites—like Yes.com, OkCupid, Match, and Zoosk—has popped up over the last few years, offering an entirely new way of connecting. Think of the new sites like online dating apps, which only allow you to use their services once you’ve accepted their invitation to trial (not “demo”).
These are the sites we’d recommend, based on our own dating experiences and what we’d like in a date (see: “The Best and Worst Dates”).
Some of you probably know the drill by now. If you’re looking for love, hook up with that cute stranger online (within your budget). Most of the sites will bill you a buck or two per month, and have a variety of sexy features, including a mobile app that lets you search, rate, and match with potential dates from your iPad or smartphone.

It’s pretty hard to judge a book by its cover Here’s a little secret: most women look their best in slutty outfits. Come to think of it, most women look their best in slutty outfits with sexy lingerie underneath. You can’t deny that. Even if you are concerned about looking your best, just remember that nothing says “I’m a floozy with dirty panties under my skirt” more than the right outfit. If you have a sports bra and shorts, you’re all set. If you’re just wearing a t-shirt, you may need to add a sexy top or tank that will cover up if you’re concerned about revealing too much. Bonus points if you can wear it to the gym. Women are too hard on themselves. There are many more ways to cover up—practically every women I know has at least one special pair of panties or something in her closet that she can wear when it’s really hot, even if she’s not necessarily wearing a bikini. When in doubt, it’s best to err on the side of giving yourself a smaller amount of cleavage. If you happen to get excited and spontaneously expose more than you intended, you can always pull up the top, flip your hair or lean against a wall to cool down. Don’t beat yourself up Let’s face it: women are very hard on themselves. Every outfit is supposed to make you feel like a star, every piece of jewelry is supposed to fit perfectly, every hair style is supposed to make you look like a queen. The good news is that nobody is perfect—the only judgment you’re going to need to make is between “too much” and “just right.” Even if you look amazing in your chosen outfit, the fact that you are wearing it should not stop you from being confident and having fun. In fact, wearing something that you love—with or without makeup—will help you feel even more confident. Think carefully about what you’re going to wear, but don’t make it so complicated that you can’t go to the gym the next day. It’s really easy to over-plan, and obsess over your outfits when you’re with a group of friends or a crush. Give yourself permission to be spontaneous, and to be a little bit lazy—as long as you can still make the effort to look your best, you are doing good. That’s a goal every woman should strive for. Always have a backup
