The Silicon Valley boasts of a large number of skilled and high-tech professionals who easily make more than a million in a year, either as salaried employees or from their own enterprises. Most millionaires among these techies began with start-ups of their own which then went on to earn billions of dollars. Among the best known of these ventures which have their headquarters in San Francisco are as Craigslist.org, Twitter, Salesforce.com and the Wikimedia Foundation. One of the most effective ways to come across single technology entrepreneurs is to frequent places where the internet millionaires spend most of their time – their workplaces. Even if you are not a computer expert yourself, there are several professions which can throw you in touch with the owners of money-making start-ups. Bankes, hedge-fund managers, investment consultants and insurers are among the finance professionals who regularly deal with successful entrepreneurs while legal experts and publicists are other people that every internet millionaire will need to have on his or her payroll. Even if you don’t have an Ivy League degree or a resume running into several pages, you can still look for internships or summer jobs which will help you meet with the top honchos of the companies. If you need any more convincing, consider the fact that internet billionaire Bill Gates met his spouses at the workplace.

Follow him on all social networking websites like Facebook, Twitter or Tumblr.
Read his blog and talk about it on your date - your interest in their area of work will not only help you to make them comfortable thus getting them to open up but also intrigue them enough to continue wanting to see you. Also give evidence of your intelligence and humor. On the whole, geeks love hanging out with people with whom they can have an intelligent conversation. So while you may not need a Mensa membership to land a date with a geek, try to come off as a person who is well-read, smart and witty. And before you know, your date may be planning what to do the next time you both meet up.
Have your own life too
While dating a successful technology entrepreneur, you may have to take your partner’s long working hours in stride. All entrepreneurs know that they need to put in a lot of time and effort at least in the beginning of the venture. And if your partner simply loves being with the computer, it may be quite difficult to tear them away from their work. Add to this unpredictable working hours or working for several days at a stretch, for example in order to finish writing a program. At such times, avoid assuming that your partner’s unavailability means that he/she loves you any less. In fact it is best if you have a worthwhile career as well social circle of your own which will not only keep you busy but nurture your personality too.
