FEATURES
Single in the City

Being Kim Cattrall TV's vampiest vixen talks to Lisa DePaulo about what it's like to have that much sex (even if it's only pretend). Mr. Softies Ariel Levy reports on a generation of men (they say they're men) who are just saying no to casual sex. Plus: Is that a wallet in your pocket, or are you just glad to see me? -- one man's lament about today's material girls. The Twisted Roads to Romance Susan Avery tests dating services and personals; Bob Morris cruises . . . with a coach; Amy Sohn trolls the bars. Playing the Mate Market What to do if you're too busy pulling down a million a year or more to look for a soul mate? Vanessa Grigoriadis reports on matchmaker Janis Spindel, who will track you down the woman of your dreams -- for a six-figure finder's fee. Blinded by the Light Even Manhattan scenesters get lonely. So New York arranged blind dates for everyone from Cindy Adams to Miss U.S.A. and from George Wayne to Bob Guccione Jr. And sparks definitely flew. (But not always of the romantic kind.)
