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.

“People don’t list ‘rich’ as much as I thought they would,” she confided. Instead, she claims you need to be brave, a good listener, and make people feel at ease.

I was impressed with the way Swider so easily approached people, not beating around the bush for one moment. “You can’t be that elderly woman scaring girls about their biological clocks ticking.” That would be a yenta. Even the ones who weren’t single wanted her card to pass on to friends.

Even someone like Greg, though, has difficulty meeting women in the city.

In response, Swider pieced it together quite nicely: “You’re looking for someone who’s a guy’s guy on the surface, but underneath he’s got a little more going on.” I was tempted to slow clap. Just because Christy was interested in being set up doesn’t mean the male community would be interested in letting a stranger send them on dates — especially when TDR’s core demographic is people in their 20s and 30s.

After all, if Christy’s having trouble meeting someone, what makes Swider any more qualified, or lucky, even?

She hit the basics, like age, height, job, and her version of “So, what brings you in today? When Christy said her hobbies included adventurous activities, Swider responded, “So, you’re doer,” or “You’re more of an explorer, not a vacationer.” The TDR matchmaker functions as a liaison between the algorithms of online dating and how you articulate what you’re looking for.

Swider is like a colored pencil, shading in the gaps between your own erratic coloring and the sharp, distinct boundaries of online-dating questions. Sitting with her, you get the feeling she truly understands you.

“You have to approach dating the same way you would a job: networking,” she said.
