7 New Online Dating Start-Ups

13 June, 2007

Social Media, Start-Ups, Web 2.0

Did you ever use one of the online dating services? There are plenty of sites on the web offering you personals ranging from adult dating to christian dating from black dating to gay dating.

I’ve collected a bunch of the newest and most innovative dating sites. All of them are start-ups. A few of them requires a fee, but most are free online dating sites.

  • Online Speed Dating - You will be matched up in a 15 Minute Blind Date (Speed Dating) session where you can meet your blind date face-to-face via webcam.

  • WhereJackMetJill - WJMJ is a lot like Myspace and allows daters to customize their profiles to suit their unique tastes. It avoids the formulaic trap which many dating sites are prone to and WJMJ is simple to use. This is a Britsh start-up and costs £12,99 per month.

  • MeetMoi - You get updates about potential matches as text messages on your mobile phone, and then you can use text messaging to flirt with the person. The service is free and for Americans only.
  • BallsInYourCourt - BIYC helps you find a compatible mate and gives you a safe, open environment to connect to your ideal mate. The homepage features a search function or browse yourself by selecting your city. The service is free of charge.

  • Mingle 2 - Mingle 2 lets you search by location, age, and gender, and photos are available. Basic, simple dating service—but there’s no cost involved.
  • KissCafé - Like any other dating site, it is free and you can make an extensive profile. You even get your own URL, which makes it easier to post it on Facebook and similar sites and you can submit your own dating advice - Kiss Facts on every page. There are also ads from organizations like Greenpeace, which offer environmentally-aware tidbits of news or information. This would seem to present the site as a place for socially-minded or environmentally-minded people to meet.
  • FlirtFrenzy - I’ve previously mentioned this one. You get ten minutes to chat with a member you are interested in, and then after that, it’s up to you whether or not you exchange contact information. You select your flirting partner based on geographical location and his/her profile stats. Free and you don’t need to sign up.

I could go on and on, but these are some of the most recent start-ups. They are all in heavy competition with sites like match.com and eharmony.com. The free and ad-free sites are having a hard time making any money of this. Let’s see if any of these can make it out there.

Did I miss any sites? Which one do you prefer? Did you ever “get” anything out of a dating site?

    The popular free online dating sites make really good money. Their adsense clicks alone attract a commission on average of .25cents. It really is all about ranking isnt it. If an online dating site ranks well thet make money. The reason most online dating sites dont make money is because its so hard to climb the rankings in this industry.

    I’ve been using dating sites for about 2 years. Some of the ones you mentioned. They are a lot of fun, but I still haven’t met the one. I’ve been getting into astrology to help me out. This site is pretty interesting, it tells you what your best matches for your type would be. Match Love Horoscopes

    those are decent sites but my favorite online dating site is http://www.confonder.com

  • http://meeting42.com free dating sites

    I can say I’m already a Guru in online dating. I’ve examined so many dating sites that I’ve seen almost all of them. I guess the most important thing for serious sites is to have a cleverly organized questionnaire for users to be able to get an idea who are their potential company. And that would be great if having filled a questionnaire once would constantly provide you with profiles of those newcomers who can match you. I understand that free dating sites can’t afford such services as that is to be done by specialists and specialists are to be paid. I’ve found a dating service which provides services like that. It’s meeting42.com. They do look serious and I believe it’s better to pay some fee not to get a “free lunch”, you know.

  • meeting42

    Do you know the site with the leading dating affiliate program on the net? That’s meeting42.com. Know why? They pay good money for bringing new members to their service! You can make a chain of 3 links and everyone will receive their percent for a new member. If you’re as lazy as I’m, you can bring 3-4 people, get your 10% from their registration fees and then do nothing but wait. When they bring their friends, you’ll get 15%! For the 3rd link in the chain you’ll receive 20%! When those people prolong their registration, you’ll get your percentage again! I’ve never seen anything like that before!
