Mobile Online Dating: The Online Originals

Posted by:

Internet dating apps popped up and quickly changed the dating game as we knew it. Now, the mobile app trend is changing the dynamic yet again. As I see it, there are two segments of dating apps making it onto the smartphone and tablet mobile device scene. The first is the original, online-based dating websites that have been around for decades (really, Match.com launched in 1995!) that are now moving into mobile apps to stay on-trend. The second are the ...

Niche Sites

Posted by:

Big dating websites often market themselves on their high number of active users, which is appealing precisely because it ignites a sense of confidence that your search for love will be successful. However, what if too much choice puts strain on your search rather than aide in its success? The fact is, the more profiles that are on a database, the more time and effort required for you to sift through and find someone who seems to be a possible ...

Good Changes Coming to Plenty of Fish

Posted by:

Part of my trumpeting OKCupid was because I liked the features, but if I’m honest another reason I gave OKCupid a lot of free advertising is because I wasn’t a fan of the free dating site most people were using: Plenty of Fish (POF).
