“I ask what their past relationships were like, how they usually meet people, if they’ve dated in New York City and what they’re looking for.” If she finds a great match, Kay sets up a one-on-one date.But more often, she picks six people who might click and sends them on a group date, usually at a bar.“Online dating takes a lot of time,” the 24-year-old entrepreneur, who also founded the babysitting service Smart Sitting.com, told the Daily News.“I’m working with a lot of people who have very, very busy lives.” Since last month’s soft launch, Kay has nearly 200 members simply from word of mouth. “She just sort of has a sense,” said 23-year-old Ariana, who met her boyfriend through a date Kay arranged. From the moment I met her, she could understand the person I would be interested in.” It was one of Kay’s first set-ups: dinner and drinks in Chelsea followed by an Upright Citizens Brigade show. She screens love-seekers — usually four to six at a time — at a bar in the lower East Side, after they fill out an online survey.
