I REALLY like this startup site. There is so much bullshit in profiles on dating sites… this lets people see each other in real time and weed through people until you find a match.

  1. hmmm an interesting concept, i’m surprised someone didn’t already do this honestly… then again, it’s hard to look popular (ie. make fake profiles) to start if you have real people there you know? chicken and egg…

  2. I, like most others, thought that online dating was for odd balls and pervs until I had one friend after the other meet their soulmates online. Everyone I know that met their spouse online has stayed together and seem to be very happy. I think there really is something to meeting someone online, especially if you are matched up well.
    The next generation of lovers probably won’t think anything about going online for dates.

  3. This seems like a great idea. It definitely has a market.
    But I am sure the traditional online dating will continue to remain the big thing.

  4. Hum, It’s kind of scary. I think I’d rather look at a picture first than chat with them right away. How do you say “Uh, thanks but no thanks!”?

  5. wow this looks promising. Most people are shy at first though, so I wonder how people will react

  6. It’s all about the next idea, right? Everybody’s searching for it. This may be a good one!

  7. Wow that is SMART.

    I did quite a bit of online dating and not ashamed to admit it at all…lol. I saw it as just an easy way to weed out the people I didn’t want to meet and being someone who loves the internet it only seemed natural.
    Anyway, this would have been really cool to have when I was dating. I met my boyfriend from an online dating site and we’ve been going out for over 2 years.

  8. i watched the video of woome.com, one of the top 40 companies selected to present at techcrunch40 and think they have a much better framework. check it out here


    their ceo claims its not solely limited to dating and can be applied to a variety of applications like finding a new roomate or even travel partners. i really like woome.com’s open approach to creating “speed sessions” and ability to see people BEFORE i decide to add myself to a session. anyway, you should probably also check out this company too before going down the speeddating path!

  9. lol, that site is crap. okcupid is free and rocks them all and has been around for years. q&a is much less creepy than video.

  10. Im not too big of an online dating fan, though Ive also never done anything with the sole purpose of snagging me a girl, so I guess I really dont get the mentality of I have to have a GF/BF,

  11. Do you have any archives of previous articles that you’ve written? I would love to read the others

  12. You’ll have to be good looking to put up a nice video. And good looking people don’t need dating sites.

  13. Ha ha, that is what I was thinking, this is probably a case of where you get a good looking spokesperson to do all the talking if you are working in the dating niche.

  14. […] Check out our video posted by shoemoney.com! […]

  15. Live 3 minute dates … actually a nice idea and some thing out of the box …

    What do you think Jeremy works better ? Thinking of out of the box ideas like this (trying to reinvent the wheel) OR doing what you know is working for others. Its very obvious that if you have a gem of idea the first one can do wonders… but is it actually worth the risk ?

  16. This is a great idea. I have never done online dating before but my ex husband did, and he wrote a heap of bull in his profile. Too bad for him that he was too stupid to delete the history in his browser!
