PICK YOU UP AT 8? Nerd Should you find yourself single today of all days, ladies, help is on the way. The San Francisco Chronicle reports that there are billionaire geeks aplenty in the Silicon Valley who are looking for love.

Jill Kelleher, a San Francisco matchmaker, highlights one particularly well-to-do bachelor in need of a mate. "I have a guy with a couple of airplanes, a 100-foot boat. He has it all. He has dated incredible women, including royalty. Now he's in his mid-40s and he's going, 'Wait a minute,'" Kelleher says. "He doesn't want to compromise. He doesn't want to marry the wrong gal. So he solicited me to come in and hopefully find the Ivy League gal of his dreams."

Of course, if you hope to snag a mini Bill Gates, it doesn't hurt if you've got a "Junior League" pedigree and a "Pilates sculpted" body, says Amy Andersen of Linx Dating LLC. And if the fellows need a little help shedding their video-game addictions and trimming their bowl cuts, for around $3,250 a year Andersen will chip in and turn them from "geek to chic."

Go on gals, there's still time to bed a (deep-pocketed) nerd before the clock strikes 12.
