The sites grant access to larger pools of potential dates than you could ever find on your own, and the more people you connect with, the greater the chance is that one of those people could be your soul mate.
Some sites even promise “scientific formulas” to create perfect matches, making it sound as if the odds of finding true love are all but guaranteed.
What I thought would be one of the most superficial sites in the online dating spectrum, actually turned out to be one of the least. For more details check out my Q&A with the founders below. We thought there was a gap in the market and wanted to create a dating site for the "scholastically oriented" focusing on the values of education and intellectual curiosity.So, to prove I’m really not picky I decided to swipe right to EVERY man on Tinder for a week. It’s like having a bodyguard who puts a hand on unwanted suitors’ shoulders and says ‘the lady said no’. As I drive to work I hear several little pings meaning new messages and feel a mixture of pleasure and guilt. Still, I have 43 matches and seven messages before 9am.On the plus side, I never message men first, so maybe swiping right on them all won’t make much difference. I get up early and spend a good half hour swiping right to, among others, two tattooed body parts (no face pics, just arms and shins), three football logos (I don’t watch sport) and a cute guy with a leopard (okay, he’ll do). TUESDAY In keeping with the ‘swipe right’ mentality of the experiment, I reply to all the messages I get this week.2) Our site is not set up as a searchable database.Based on the numbers alone, the advantages of online dating services seem obvious.
Dating has become a real nightmare for busy people, going through the motions, forcing yourself to go to bars or boring single events, having blind-dates, friends’ introductions, God help me! Being my work such an important part of my life, I always felt that the possibility of finding someone with common work interests was the key to compatibility, even a good way to start a conversation or to share views.
