Silicon Valley Matchmaker Finds Love for Brainiac Bachelors

"I think a lot of the Silicon Valley-based guys who are so incredibly successful and cerebral tend to be very analytical. They can be very preprogrammed and robotic in the motions that they carry on through life. It's their mind that has led them to be so successful. Now the issue at stake is that that analytical mentality doesn't exactly compute over to the dating world where emotion and feeling and that emotional intelligence is really important," Andersen said.

Andersen said her method works better than Match.com or eHarmony -- websites that use computer algorithms to match people's profiles -- because she can help her clients get over their anxieties and teach them how to present themselves on dates.

"A computer can't whisper into your ear and say here's a little history into your match, and this is what you should wear. These are points to talk about. Avoid this," she said. "It's really that very personalized approach that makes this incredibly unique, and that no algorithm could do, no computer, no geeky piece of technology or iPhone app could figure out."

Perhaps she is right. Maybe, even in Silicon Valley, love is tech-proof.
