Barbie Adler

Selective Search Founder & President Barbie Adler is a national expert on dating and relationships who has consulted on national dating-related television programs and has appeared in Forbes, Fortune, The Economist, The Wall Street Journal, USA Today and CNN.  In 2000, Barbie Adler left a successful career as an executive recruiter and founded Selective Search with the desire to provide North America with its first fully offline, confidential, and customized executive matchmaking firm. Her goal was to combine her experience recruiting top talent with her passion for helping busy, successful, single, men and women find a committed loving relationship. These men and women didn’t have a problem finding a date, but also didn’t have the time, resources or wherewithal to find “The One.” Barbie wanted to serve these individuals using the same process driven approach she had successfully implemented as a high-level executive recruiter.
