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.

Good luck and happy holidays!

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."
