2016 dating strategy: Miranda’s found herself most comfortable on Bumble, which gives her the same agency as The League without the elitism. She tries hard to suggest in her bio that she has a life outside of her demanding career, so she lists super-exciting hobbies like reading, visiting museums, and SoulCycle (which she’s absolutely never tried).

First date: After swiping right on a UES stockbroker in his early 50s, Miranda suggests they meet for a midday coffee date at Sant Ambroeus, during which they bond over stories of late nights, early meetings, and the city’s best takeout spots.
