As we recently saw, gold-digging bachelorettes may no longer be able to count on Millionaire Matchmaker to find them a legitimate internet mogul to sponge off for all eternity. Or at least until they turn 30.

But never fear, ladies. The void left by the Bravo (CMCSA) series has now, curiously, been filled by another media outlet. Making the New York Times’ "All the News That's Fit to Print" cut is the official list of rich, male Silicon Valley singles with net worths in the eight- and nine-figure range. And some of them aren’t even that dorky.

You see, unlike New York City -- where women have a huge dating disadvantage, outnumbering men by nearly two-to-one -- this southern stretch of the San Francisco Bay Area is a hotbed of high-tech testosterone. “The imbalance is also painfully clear to the male tech executives in the Santa Clara Valley,” writes the Times, “who bitterly joke about living in ‘Man Jose’ or ‘Manta Clara.’”

So which guys made the list? Well, we know Mark Zuckerberg got scratched off when he updated his Facebook (FB) relationship status to “married” last month, celebrating nuptials with longtime girlfriend and fellow Harvard alum Priscilla Chan. However, one of Zuckerberg’s first employees -- snatched up from LinkedIn (LNKD) and current partner at Benchmark Capital -- 35-year-old Matt Cohler, has been on the market since 2011 when his last relationship ended.  

Bachelor Number Two is the Prada-wearing, celebrity-elbow-brushing co-founder of Twitter and Square, Jack Dorsey. The 36-year-old with $650 million in the bank counts a San Francisco Ballet dancer as a previous love, so those with eating disorders and smoking habits do need apply.    

The dream guy for any young lady with a shoe fetish is none other than the founder and chief executive of Zappos (AMZN). But Tony Hsieh isn’t necessarily the marrying type, citing the high divorce rate as a reason for his bare ring finger. Oracle’s (ORCL) Larry Ellison knows a thing or two about failed marriages, having ended his fourth in 2010 to romance novelist Melanie Craft. If you can talk him out of a pre-nup, all the power to ya!
