Hot tech IPOs aren't just good for Wall Street -- they also spice up the dating scene. We go to the heart of Silicon Valley to find these rich, eligible bachelors -- and the singles conspiring to meet them.

Speaker: District at the San Francisco Hot Spot, known for attracting the tech crowd and (Katherina Mirabelli?) has seen it all from behind the bar. Speaker: When that it was a whole boom of the google.com and a lot of employee cashed out their shares. Had a lot of kids coming here, retiring and celebrating. Speaker: Yeah, yeah. Speaker: They will come here and just... You know, orders it from me, the best champagne bottles and the best bottles and just trying to like honey for bees. Just get all the girls around them. Speaker: And for singles on the prowess for a text millionaire, it takes more than just luck to strike gold. Speaker: A lot of girls are out, and Asian, running young. Successful gentlemen, daddy's single to introduce it. I got more requests for phone number, that's the wine. Speaker: And guys play the same game. Speaker: There were definitely guys out there who've made it, and... And know that's attractive and use that for any women. Speaker: (Yuli Smirnova?), the single woman, who has her own strategy for finding a man. Speaker: There is a perfect market in exchange. All see now beauty... You know, status and money.

Speaker: But Rick, a Google Exec and member of Linx, isn't worried that his wallet is what is attracting women. Speaker: I think gold digging is less of an issue in San Francisco, as it would be in New York or L.A. I think that the people with money out here tend to be entrepreneurs and self-made Tech Executives to... For a certain extent, and they're pretty grounded individuals. Speaker: As for the competition from Rich Space Booked Employees, this bachelor doesn't bet an eye. Speaker: Let's face it, like... You know, guys intact are really good at Math and Science, but that doesn't mean that we know anything about Chemistry and so, even if there are bunch of new millionaires, I...
