On a recent episode of HBO’s , Mark Duplass’ character takes up a job as an Uber driver, and during a low point in his marriage, goes home with a cute passenger. One married Uber driver named Jen posted a blog detailing a hook up with a man she picked up from the airport.
After the pair exchanged several messages on Linked In and Marcus did some due diligence — such as finding Alda’s photo online — he invited her to bat a few balls around on a local tennis court. The two, both based in Texas, hit it off, and have been dating ever since.
"As soon as he got in my van I could see he kept looking at me like he knew me but not sure from where.And while it may not be as closely associated with the dating game as apps such as Tinder, eligible, career-minded singles are using Linked In not just to find jobs but love as well.“If sharing career interests or finding a significant other who is successful professionally is important to you, it is an amazing resource,” says Roy Cohen, a career counselor, executive coach and author of “The Wall Street Professional’s Survival Guide.” “Think about Linked In as a starting point in terms of getting to know someone, first on a professional basis and then, if there is something more — a spark — allowing it to morph,” says Cohen.That’s what happened with Katie Doble, vice president at staffing firm the Creative Group.Katie had been looking for a life partner in a myriad of ways: She joined a church, played on recreational sports teams five days a week, showed up at networking events with a hopeful heart and more.
