For more than 15 years, the full-time staff at Heart to Heart Introductions has been playing Cupid with a dating database that now holds upward of 24,000 members. Approximately 85% of that romantic melting pot is made up of busy professionals who don't have the time or patience for typical meeting spots, such as bars, coffee shops, or traffic circles. The team creates each member's personal profile based on phone and in-office interviews and then sends them off to other members that match their personality and preferences. When interests are mutually piqued, the staff sets up dates or provides members with each other's digits, using feedback from how the dates go to instruct future matches. When sparks are absent, the process starts over again, with new profiles and pictures sent every two days. The love luminaries help increase the chances of a successful first date by offering tips on proper duds, suitable conversation, and why pretending you invented soccer is bad.
