DATING, am I right? (Sad trombone.) Sometimes you just want to blow a whistle and call in for parental backup. Geri Brin is all for it -- she's the mom responsible for Fab Over Fifty and its new parent-driven romantic matchmaking service, Date My Single Kid.

If you're willing to swallow your pride and hand your mom the reins, why not? You know she'll be down to pick you up from the movie theater, and even if you don't find true love, you still stand a decent chance of finding a good lawyer or dentist in your area. Win-win.
