Six dating tips for the single entrepreneur

You know building a successful business takes a lot of time and energy and so does building a successful relationship. Can entrepreneurs have both? Yes, say two relationship experts we spoke to, it just takes a little planning and persistence.

“Entrepreneurs wear many hats,” says Barbie Adler, president of Selective Search, a Chicago-based matchmaking service with clients nationwide and abroad. “If your personal life is important to you, treat it like [an] appointment and carve out time to date.” Here are six tips for single entrepreneurs looking for a (life, not business) partner:

1. Let friends/family know you’re available.
“Recruit a team of promoters who will network for you,” suggests Stephanie Ginsberg, a New York-based relationship coach and advice expert. “People genuinely like to be helpful — plant the seed in people’s minds that you’re available.” Ask friends, family and colleagues for recommendations. Doing so is more effective and less time consuming than online dating where you don’t know if people are who they represent themselves as, Ginsberg says.
