Niche Dating Site of the Week: PickMeQuick.com

by @ 5:32 pm. Filed under Niche Dating, Site of the Week

What do you think about a photo mosaic of people to click on and learn about? The idea sounds fun and interesting but not all that useful. That is the idea behind PickMeQuick. So you pick a girl or a guy out of a big picture collage and their info page comes up. They are from who knows where and probably nowhere near you. What good is that?

You definitely need to use the search features such as country, region and age to narrow the field of who you are looking at. Then it starts to make a little more sense. Since most people only click on profiles with pictures at most dating sites, why not a site that you can’t get on without a picture being posted for people to click on to get more info on you. Wow that was a long sentence. Anyway they say:

The idea for PickMeQuick.com spawned from staring at one of those photo mosaics! You know the pictures that are made up of smaller pictures! The thought of putting lots of small pictures together makes an interesting collage and I think is a fantastic interface for picking out people you may be interested in contacting.

We’ve tried to break the mould of most dating site concepts. Simplicity is the goal here. The design of the site exposes the core right from the homepage. The aim is to deliver personal ads to users as fast as possible and in a fun and absorbing way. We believe this can offer a greater viewing potential to members and thus increase the chance of finding friends or dates!

You do need a high-speed Internet connection for this site to actually be considered fast. As it does take some time to download all those photo thumbnails. Once this is done though and you have narrowed your search criteria you certainly can get at the info pretty fast. This online dating site does seem to strike me as just another take on those hot or not sites, except without the voting. But people do love to click on other people photos to see more about them on online dating sites.

The profile information is a few paragraphs. A description, a likes and dislikes and what you are looking for along with the basic info of age, height etc. Also multiple photos can be posted besides the one that gets included in the mosaic.

Right now they are giving away free lifetime memberships to get people onto the site. As of this posting there are 4738 left. After that anyone who signs up will have to pay $3.00 a month. So if you want to put your pretty face out there for people to find amongst the many you might want to sign up at PickMeQuick.

Have you seen this site? What do you think of the concept? Leave your thoughts in the comments.
