♦ We don't play match-maker - YOU decide who's right for you, not a computer.
♦ The focus is on getting to really know each other. It's not a shopping mall where you choose someone based solely on a photo and carefully-worded profile.
♦ Instant Message (IM) other members who are currently online to have live discussions.
messaging. You decide if you want to see who
you're talking to using your webcam
(no need to meet face-to-face until you're ready). One of the biggest complaints with online dating sites is that the person often doesn't look like his/her photo when you meet in real life. Video chatting allows you to see the other person without giving out any personal information or setting up a first date.
♦ "Phone" other members using VOIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol). Instead of giving out personal information such as your phone number, use your computer's microphone and earphones (or a headset) and talk using the web site's connection. It's both easier and safer!
♦ Invite someone to play an online game - laughing together over a game can make that first date a lot more comfortable and give you something to talk about.
♦ Create your own blog - get to know each other better by reading and posting blogs on any topic you choose - gives you a lot more freedom than just what's included in a profile. The best relationships are formed by people who share interests, values and opinions on important topics.
♦ Plan and organize a live, in-person (off-line) event in your area. Meet a group for drinks or dinner (maybe a trip to a winery?) - or whatever interests you. Show the event location on a map so everyone can find it easily. You can make it open to everyone or limit it to an invitation-only guest list if you choose. Everyone can share photos of the event and message each other before, during and after. What a great way to get to know others in a non-intimidating environment.
♦ Attend events organized by others. RSVP to let everyone know you're attending (and see who else is going to be there).
♦ Form and join online groups. Meet and talk with other people who share your interests (both male and female). After all, there's more to life than dating.
♦ Join in Forum discussions and chat rooms. Spark a conversation (or join one already in progress). Lively discussions and good-natured "ribbing" often lead to romance.
♦ No SPAM. We NEVER share, rent or sell your information to anyone!
♦ Secure. Payments are handled by PayPal - the web's most trusted payment processor. We never see your credit card information. Your credit card information provides a safe dating atmosphere for you - all you have to do is log on and have fun.
Did you know that most popular dating sites collect your info just so they can share your email address with others? This results in you getting SPAM from dozens of other companies. We think that's despicable! We NEVER share, rent or sell your email address or any other personal information.
WHAT WE OFFER VS. OTHER SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES:
♦ This isn't a place to find old classmates or co-workers. It's a place for single adults to find others of the opposite sex and new single friends.
♦ Blogs, discussion forums and chat rooms allow for real discussions - rather than just blasting out a 140 character message.
♦ You can communicate with each other privately through private mailbox messages, Instant Messages (IM), phone and and video chat.
♦ See who's online whenever you are.
♦ Search the network for people with similar interests. That applies to looking for members of the opposite sex for dating purposes OR it allows you to find new friends to increase your social circle.
