Websites that Will Help You Find a Date for New Year's

ABCNews.com has an interesting and positive look at how online dating is still the best way to find a date. Some excerpts from the article include:

"The stigma of online dating has completely evaporated," said Egon Smola, general manager of Yahoo! Personals. "So many people have told me they've met someone online."

Most dating sites aren't doing special promotions for New Year's Eve because traffic typically increases during the holidays anyway. "As you get closer to the end of the year, people re-examine their lives," said Yahoo! spokesman Jason Khoury. "They're going to determine if they're in the right relationship. It's make or break time."


Despite the drop in visitors, online-dating industry revenues have grown as companies raised monthly membership fees and membership lengths increase. Total U.S. industry revenues rose 10% to $659 million in 2006, and Jupiter forecast a compound annual growth rate of 8% through 2011.

The bottom line is... Online Dating is alive and well and doing just fine.

Say-Hey-Hey - Free Online Video Dating

SayHeyHey.com is a new dating site that recently launched (which is nothing new since there seems to be a new site launching every day nowadays). It did peak my interest though after reading this article from the Detroit Free Press. After visiting the site, I found this video below that gives you a quick view on how the site works.

I commend them for using a hot woman to do the tutorial (Good move guys). See what you think. If it makes it, it could spell a lot of changes in the world of online dating, but for now, I'll have to wait and see. It's totally free right now, but they've gotta make money somehow, so my hunch is they'll introduce a paid subscription pretty soon.

P.S. There are some interesting videos on the site, like this little lady who's very specific about what she wants from her man. Good luck!

Can DNA Tests Help Find True Love?

ScientificMatch.com thinks so, and they're hoping singles will pay big bucks to join... The site claims to be able to match singles together by matching their DNA. Here's an excerpt from ABCNews.com:

ScientificMatch.com, a dating service launched earlier this week, is pledging to take relationships to "a whole new era" by becoming the first site to offer its customers DNA testing in an attempt to find the perfect mate.

Customers, who must pay $1,995 to join, are asked to swab the inside of their cheeks with a provided cotton swab, send it to a laboratory for testing, and then sit back and wait for the scientists to determine their immune system's genetic makeup.

Less Chocolate, Quit Smoking, Fire My Boss, Find a Boyfriend

Looks like singles would rather find a mate than stop eating chocolate, quit smoking or find a new job according to this article from PRNewswire - Haven't we all done it? Days, or perhaps weeks before the start of each New Year, single women and men carefully draft their New Year's resolutions: Lose weight, find a new job, commit to more "me" time or even find a boyfriend/girlfriend. So, which resolution remains the most popular?

The results of a new poll conducted by Perfectmatch.com, a leading online dating and relationship service, indicates more than 64% of single adults between the ages of 30-59 agreed finding love and romance remains the number one "in with the new" resolution. This is followed by "out with the old" resolutions, which included getting fit, kicking bad habits and unhealthy behavior.

To continue reading this article, please go to this page on PRNewswire.com.

Well, if you're one of those who desperately wants to find love in 2008, check out our sister site Alternative-Dating-Sites.com for articles and reviews on the top alternative dating sites on the web.

Speed-Dating Diva Tells How to Dazzle In A Dash

From the Seattle Times - For the past two years, Aviva Fannie, of Cupid.com, has run one of the most popular speed-dating events in Seattle.

Held weekly in swanky bars and bistros such as Ibiza Dinner Club in Pioneer Square, the two-hour affairs have drawn lawyers and computer programmers, especially from Microsoft.

The events have given Fannie a front-row seat to the dating scene — the blunders, the occasional chemistry, the ways men and women are different. She offers her observations... and a little advice:

The Perfect First Date - Tango

Are you stumped trying to figure out what to do on the first date? According to this article from SexyAdsNews.com, Tango is the way to go.

"Tango has got to be the hottest—and coolest—dance to capture hearts, literally around the world. Since its first steps in Argentina in the late nineteenth century, tango has caught on in more than 30 countries and on every continent (well, except maybe Antarctica). Milongas—tango dance parties—are everywhere. And they just may be the perfect date.

It takes two to tango. Really. If you're not familiar with it, you might think the tango is just another formal, old-fashioned ballroom dance, with the guy leading the girl around the floor. You'd be wrong. Tango is mostly spontaneous and improvised."

Good luck!

Daters Find "Spark" With Niche Online Communities

I've long said that niche online dating is the wave of the future for online dating, and in reality, it's already the here and now. Two niche categories that are literally on fire right now are adult dating and sugar daddy dating sites.

This article from CNNMoney.com provides evidence to support my belief: "People know what they're looking for in a significant other. Sites targeted toward specific affinity groups provide an ideal forum for singles looking to meet like-minded individuals," says Greg Liberman, president and chief operating officer of Spark Networks, Inc. "We expect to see continued segmentation of this market to satisfy the varied and ever-changing tastes of today's daters."

In fact, 58 percent of JDate (the premier online community for Jewish singles) members polled say the most important criteria for a life partner is to have similar lifestyle preferences and values, while 35 percent cite physical chemistry, four percent declare shared goals, and only three percent admit professional stability."

Passion.com Commercial - Get Passionate About Life

If you're not familiar with Passion.com, it is the tamer version of Adult Friend Finder. It's not quite as sexually explicit as it's racier sister site. They've come up with some really clever commercials poking fun at the recent eharmony commercials that have been running on television for quite some time now. Here is one of their latest commercials. By the way, if you're single and passionate about life, you might want to give Passion.com a visit. Good luck and happy dating!

US Company To Launch 'Safe Sex Passport'

From Google News - US Company To Launch 'Safe Sex Passport' - Article Excerpt - A US company is poised to launch the world's first safe sex passport, aimed at giving users of dating and social networking websites extra "information protection," the man behind the idea said Wednesday.

"Some years ago I met an individual who had intercourse with someone they met online, who didn't disclose that they had an STD" or sexually transmitted disease, Gonzalo Paternoster of Florida-based SSP BioAnalytics said ahead of the launch of the Safe Sex Passport on December 1, World AIDS Day.

"The idea popped into my head that people know but don't tell the truth, and we needed an independent way to verify someone's health status,
" he told AFP.

The Safe Sex Passport will be available -- at a cost -- to anyone over the age of 18 who goes online and orders the credit-card-size article.

How To Beat "Dating Deja Vu" From Yahoo! Personals

Yahoo! Personals has a great article offering five tips on how to beat "Dating Deja Vu". Here are the five tips:

  1. Be self-observant. Ask yourself, after you've gotten to know someone, what are the traits in them that you were initially drawn to? It's likely that these are the very aspects of the person that bother you -- ones that you say you don't want in another relationship.
  2. Be analytical. What issues from your childhood does this person reflect?
  3. Consider doing some personal work. By working on whatever the unresolved issue is for you, it will no longer need as much attention through someone else.
  4. Be aware. Everything you want to know about someone is there right in the beginning. you just have to pay close attention and not be blinded by your emotions. That's why your friends can see a trait that you might not.
  5. Work it through. Is the overall relationship a good one? Remember that everyone has issues. If each of you learns to accept and respect the issues of the other person, the relationship can be quite healing for both of you.

The Cyber (Dating) Age

The Independent Florida Alligator has an interesting article lamenting what technology has done to our dating lives and even our masturbation habits... Here's an excerpt from the article - There is nothing that defines relationships and sex for this generation more than Facebook.

Where else can you befriend, message, research and stalk all in a virtual reality that some of us take more seriously than actual reality? Think about it: changing one's relationship status on Facebook is the ultimate in going steady - it has replaced the letterman jacket and varsity pin.

While technology today has affected and fostered a slew of relationships, I can't help but wonder if all this technological interference is serving to help or hamper modern love.

With New Search Tech, Dating Matt Damon Just Got Easier

From TechNewsWorld.com - "Startup ActiveSymbols is working on making a name for itself in the next generation of search technology: the ability to upload a photo of an object and use that image to search for images of similar objects. It works on faces, too. The concept could have applications in everything from e-commerce to surveillance. For now, though, the company is demonstrating its technology, called "Eyealike," on the online dating scene."

My thoughts:

This is pretty cool. I tried it out. Basically, you can do a couple of things on the Eyealike website. First, if you want to date someone who looks like your favorite celebrity, then you can do a search for singles who look like that particular celebrity. The service will search over 300,000 images scraped from Match and AmericanSingles. More images are supposed to be added in the future from other dating services as well.

The other thing you can do on the site is submit your photo and the service will find the celebrity you resemble the most. Then, other singles searching for people who look like their favorite celeb will be able to find you. In theory, this is a pretty cool application.

We'll see how it pans out over time.

Good luck and happy dating to you all!

Playboy Enters The Social Network Scene

In an effort to revitalize it's brand, Playboy has launched PlayboyU, which is a social network similar to Facebook and Myspace, but it is exclusively marketed to college students. The site bars nudity, but it doesn't leave much to the imagination with pictures from various Playboy mansion parties, etc. But, if you don't have an email address that ends in .edu, you're out of luck. You have to be in college to join....Period. Read the full release here.

My take: I'm not sure it'll make it after the initial hoopla dies down because Facebook has been so successful with college students because it appeals to all students. I see PlayboyU only appealing primarily to a smaller segment of male students who don't mind being associated with the Playboy brand. Only time will tell, but I never put anything past Mr. Hefner. If anyone can figure out how to make sex sell in any environment, it's the pajama clad Sugar Daddy.

Happy Dating to you all!

First Dates: Australian Singles Keep It Simple

From the Fairfield City Champion -- "When it comes to first date ideas, singles like to play it fairly safe. A recent poll conducted by Australia's largest online dating site, RSVP, ruled dinner and a movie as the most popular first date idea. Coffee and cake at the local cafe and a picnic in the park also proved popular first date choices."

Here are the results from their poll of favorite first date ideas:

1. Dinner and a movie
2. Coffee and cake at a local cafe
3. Picnic in the park
4. Candlelit dinner al fresco or meet up and see what you fancy doing
6. Twilight cinema
7. Dinner cruise
8. Watching a band at the local pub
9. An ice-cream and walk in the park
10. Pub lunch and a game of pool or going to a theatre/art exhibition


My personal favorite: Dinner and a movie.

By the way, if you are from Australia, my personal favorite dating site for Aussie's is the AussieDatingNetwork located at www.aussiedatingnetwork.com.

Good luck, and I hope all your first dates are great!

OkCupid.com Poll Reveals Kinkiest, Loneliest, Most Religious States in America

From Business Wire -- "OkCupid.com, America’s largest free online dating site, analyzed over 700,000 OkCupid.com users’ answers to over 200,000,000 questions to determine how states ranked in dating categories including kinkiness, loneliness, independence and religious piety. The rankings, available today, offer a peek at the dating “personality” of each state.

The poll found that the loneliest women live in Minnesota while the loneliest men live in Kentucky, unfortunately more than 900 miles away from one another. Interestingly, Massachusetts is home to the most independent men and women, making it a miracle any marriages happen in The Bay State. New Hampshire, whose state motto is “Live Free or Die,” did not break the top 10 in the independence category."

Yahoo Personals - Free 7-Day Trial

As of today and according to the latest Comscore/Media Metrix ratings, Yahoo Personals is the largest dating site on the internet. For that reason alone, you should join the site.

Because of the enormous size of the site, it might take a little searching to find your exact type, but with so many members, you're bound to find someone you like.

And, here's the best reason to join Yahoo! Personals today: They are offering a 7-day Free trial membership. With your free trial, you can email or instant message any member of the site. Not many dating sites offer free trials of the premium membership. Most just offer free memberships, but if you want to email someone, you have to pay.

Bottom Line: It's the largest dating site on the internet and they're offering you a 7-day FREE trial. How can you not at least check it out?

That's our review. Now, you decide.

OK Cupid - 100% Free Online Dating Site

OKCupid is a newcomer to the world of online dating. Therefore, I am still evaluating the site for myself, but from what I've seen so far, it's actually a pretty cool site. One thing that jumps out at you from the minute you are on the site is this: It's FREE! Not free like most dating sites, but 100% free. There's no charge for posting a profile or for contacting someone.

How can they do this and still make money? For the answer to this question, I am going to quote one of the answers the site's owners give on their FAQ page. Here is the question on their site: "Is OkCupid entirely free?" And, here is their answer: "YES. We intend to keep it that way. Our plan is never to charge for anything that's currently free on the site, including messaging other users."

What this says to me is this: Now is the time to join this site. In the future, they will probably have a paid membership, but according to them, you'll still be able to send messages to other users. That, in itself, is enough reason to join. Also, the site has a very unique way of matching up people. Rather than go into too much detail here, go ahead and join the site for free by clicking here, and check it out for yourself. I think you'll like it.

That's our review. Now, you decide.

Happy dating to you all!

eHarmony - A Complete Review

eHarmony is probably the most popular "serious relationship" dating site today. They've been running television commercials for quite some time now and as a result, they have grown to be one of the largest online dating sites on the internet.

While the site is not specifically a Christian dating site, it is different from many of it's closest competitors like Match.com and Yahoo! Personals because of it's traditional values. eHarmony does not provide services for gay or lesbian members. The sites founder, Dr. Neil Clark Warren, who can be seen in most of the eHarmony commercials, is himself an evangelical Christian, and his beliefs definitely play a major role in the structure of the site.

The sites main goal is to help singles find a partner for marriage. To this goal, the site has some rather strict factors which may limit a person from experiencing eHarmony's matchmaking service to the fullest, which include: still being married, 3 or more previous failed marriages resulting in divorce, severe depression and being under the age of 21. Anyone fitting these factors, is immediately disqualified from enjoying a complete profile, but they still can visit the community forum and read the newsletters.

Basically, if you are seriously looking for someone to spend the rest of your life with, then eHarmony is perfect for you. They claim to be the internet's #1 matchmaking site based upon marriages per match. I repeat... If you're serious, then this site is for you.

Bottom Line: If you have the time to fill out the 400+ profile questionaire, and you are tired of deadend dates, eHarmony is definitely a site you'll want to join. A good friend of mine has been using eHarmony for a while now, and she has been on some great dates. She hasn't found Mr. Right yet, but everyone she's met in person (3 so far) have been really nice guys who matched their profile and matched what she is looking for.

It's working for her, and I know it'll work for you, if you are serious. I keep repeating this because I don't want you to waste your time if all you want to do right now is look at picture profiles and casually date for a while. If that is what you're looking for, then some of the other dating sites we'll be reviewing in the coming days will work much better for you.

To join eHarmony, visit this page on their site.

Now you've read our review. Now, you decide.

Dating Site for Dog Owners

In thinking about my review for Single Dog Lovers on the Net, I remembered a situation that happened to me about 10 years ago when I first moved to Atlanta. I let a friend of mine set me up with a girl he knew. She was cute, and we had a decent time out on the date.

At the end of the date, I walked her to her door and she invited me in for a cup of coffee. At this point, I was introduced to her new baby kitten. We had not discussed pets at all up to this point in the date, but she proceeded to tell me how she had always had cats growing up, and how she loved cats, but did not like dogs.

I remember thinking to myself, "I wish I had known you didn't like dogs before we even went out." You see, I love dogs, but I'm not a cat person. I don't have anything against cats, I just don't enjoy being around them. This was the last date I went on with her. People who like dogs want to meet others who also like dogs. It's the same as single parents. If you're a single parent, you don't want to waste time going out with someone who does not want or like children.

With Single Dog Lovers on the Net, you know that every member likes dogs. This site saves you a lot of time and anguish of finding out after the fact that your potential soulmate doesn't actually like dogs.

To join Single Dog Lovers on the Net, click here to set up your free membership. With your free membership, you can post photos of yourself, and you can browse picture personals of single dog lovers from all over the world. If you're a dog lover, then you need to give this site a try.

That's our review. Now, you decide.

Luvoo.com Targets 1 Million Subscribers with Online Dating Fees Beginning March 20, 2007

Looks like Luvoo.com is going to start charging for it's service in a couple of weeks. The site has been marketing itself very heavily with celebrities like Pauly Shore and Carmen Electra in tow. Carmen, I would follow. Pauly...not too sure.

It seems that they now have over 1 million worldwide subscribers, who have been enjoying all the benefits of the site for free. On March 20, 2007, they'll start charging their members a fee of $29.95/year to be a member. That's a great rate, but at such a low price, I'm not quite sure what all you'll get. We'll see after the 20th. As with any dating site, it doesn't matter how many gidgets and gadgets you have on the site, it only matters how many members you have in any one person's area.

To read the press release about Luvoo.com, go to this page on Yahoo.com.

Bobby - Another Bad Dating Video

Keeping with the bad dating videos theme, here's another one from some guy named Bobby. Okay...Okay... This one is not real, but it's pretty funny and definitely not the way to conduct a dating video. Enjoy!



If you'd like to try video dating online, you should give WebDate a look. It's by far the best online video dating site that we've found.

WealthyMen.com - Women - Let's Go Digging For Gold

Okay, at first, I was a little skeptical about even talking about this site, but after browsing through it, it's actually a pretty cool site. If you are a single woman who is tired of meeting deadbeat and broke guys, you might want to check out WealthyMen.com.

My biggest question was does the site really know that it's members are rich? Apparently, they do. They have a system of verifying members' income, professions and photographs. The system is simple. They have icons telling you if a person's credentials have been verified and if they HAVE NOT been verified. Pretty cool.

So, if you're a guy who makes over $100,000 a year and you can verify it, go ahead and join. And, if you're a woman who wants to meet a rich guy (what woman doesn't!) then you definitely need to join. You can set up your free membership by visiting this page on the site.

Good luck and happy gold digging! :)

Online Dating a Modern Hit

From PerthNow -- "Online dating is mechanical and efficient, reflecting modern society, according to relationships expert Lija Jarvis. But not in a bad way, Ms Jarvis, a representative of online dating website RSVP.com.au, said.

"Trawling through a bar or relying on meeting through friends, it’s not working for people so they’re turning to quite an efficient, technological-driven way of dating."
"They’re making compensations because they’re busy and having to turn to efficient means of meeting."

As online dating nears its 10th anniversary, Ms Jarvis said it allowed participants to have pre-prepared talking points on their first dates.

This eliminated much of the uncertainty of dating – including awkward silences.

"The benefit of online dating is you can be really picky," Ms Jarvis said.

"It is about efficiency but that’s a benefit: Things like, do they smoke or not, do they have pets or not, do they have kids or not."

Good luck and happy dating to you all!

SingleontheNet.com Launches Bowling Site for Singles

Singleonthenet.com has launched a new niche site specifically for Bowling Enthusiasts. Similar to TennisSinglesFinder.com, which was mentioned a couple of days ago, sites like this that bring together singles around a common theme or interest are definitely the wave of the future for online dating in my opinion. One size fits all sites are nice, but it can take hours sometimes just to find a person who has similar interests to you. With this site, if you like bowling and want to meet someone else who does as well, this site is for you.

It's even a great site to find a bowling partner as well as a life partner. Either way, if you're into bowling, you should check the site out.

Good luck and happy bowling to you all!

Seven Online Dating Tips Will Make Your Profile Irresistible

Here are some interesting tips courtesy of the Northwest Herald:

February can be a hard month to be single. But don't wade into the digital dating pool uneducated. With tens of millions of people looking for love online, you've got to work doubly hard to stand out.

Here are seven tips for men and women from experts who help lonely-hearts craft the perfect profile.

1. Don’t kill them with adjectives - You may be loving, kind, gentle, good with animals, etc., but don't go overboard.
2. The photo - Experts have a couple of strict rules. For men: “I don’t care how well-built you are, keep your shirt on,” Resnick said. “Women are laughing at you.” For women: “No bikini shots. And if you’re going to put up a bikini picture, don’t be surprised if you get a lot of e-mails from guys you don’t want to meet,” Resnick said.
3. Stay out of the past - Don't talk about your ex-girlfriend or boyfriend
4. Don’t try to be a comedian - No bad or tasteless jokes in your profile.
5. This is not your diary - Be honest, but don't treat it like a confessional. Hold back a little.
6. Don’t fudge the truth - Along the same lines as #5, don't fudge the truth. It may be cool on the profile to say you make over 100K a year, but when you really only make 60K a year, it will really burn you in the long run...
7. Roll up your sleeves and get to work - Putting up your profile is the easy part. Now, get scrolling and find the right person for you.

To more details about each tip, please go to this page on the Northwest Herald.

The Best Singles Ad Ever Written

This has to be one of the best singles ads ever printed. It is reported to have been listed in the Atlanta Journal Constitution:

SINGLE BLACK FEMALE seeks male companionship, ethnicity unimportant. I'm a very good girl who LOVES to play. I love long walks in the woods, riding in your pickup truck, hunting, camping and fishing trips, cozy winter nights lying by the fire. Candlelight dinners will have me eating out of your hand. I'll be at the front door when you get home from work, wearing only what nature gave me. Call (XXX)XXX-XXX and ask for Daisy, I'll be waiting....



Over 15,000 men found themselves talking to the Atlanta Humane Society
