Niche Dating Site of the Week: Engage.com

by @ 5:10 am. Filed under Niche Dating, Site of the Week

Ever thought of attempting to date online with a wingman, someone to break the ice, to vouch for you. That is the idea behind Engage. A new online dating site where a community helps you find that special someone.

What they say:

Computers are great, but when it comes to matchmaking, people are much better at doing the job.

Consider the happy relationships in your own life. Most met through some type of introduction. Engage.com members make introductions for other members, and even for non-members, not because a computer told them to, but because they just have a sense that magic might happen.

You can either sign up as a Dater or a Matchmaker. If you are the dater then find someone you trust to play matchmaker for you. If you are the Matchmaker then start using the site to find potential mates for your Dater. You can contact people directly as a Dater or through a Matchmaker.

Once a potential partner is found you introduce your Dater. They can ask the Dater or the Matchmaker questions about the Dater. This gives you as the person being contacted two or more people to get information from.

You can also ask the community as a whole who do they think might be good for you with a voting opinion system. You can also provide and share dating advice with the rest of the community.

So if you have been thinking about online dating but have not signed up anywhere then get a friend to do it for you. Or if you know someone who is great but has trouble meeting people sign up as a Matchmaker and help them Engage.

Niche Dating Site of the Week: CowboyCowgirl.com

by @ 3:57 am. Filed under Niche Dating, Site of the Week

Do you love the country way of life? Tired of only being able to find city slickers that just don’t get you? Well CowboyCowgirl says they are the dating site for you.

They say:

Members come to CowboyCowgirl.com to meet other people who share an appreciation for the ‘country’ set of values and way of life. We also provide a means to meet these members through matching, messaging, and chat systems that are second to none. But don’t take our word for it! Take a look around. We think you will like what you see!

I did a little search myself of their site. Within 50 miles of my zip code they had 45 women available for contact. When I narrowed down the search criteria to an age range closer to my own I was left with 15. Seeing how I live in the suburbs of a big city I would expect this to be the case. Perusing the profiles they definitely seem to be of people looking for others who enjoy a slower pace and like animals and small towns.

You can sign up for a free profile and do pretty much everything on the site except contact others. Only paid members can send a first contact message. Memberships can be purchased in one and three month increments. If you are dissatisfied with the service at anytime during your membership period you can get a refund.

This is a small online dating site that caters to a small niche. If the idea of roping yourself a partner sounds like fun then mosey on over to CowboyCowgirl and see if you can’t rustle up a date.

Niche Dating Site of the Week: TeamDating.com

by @ 5:18 am. Filed under Niche Dating, Site of the Week

Who’s on your online dating team?

Do you have a group of single friends? Want to meet other groups of singles? Well that is why TeamDating was created. This online dating site attempts to help you meet that special someone in the safety of friends. You already go out with your friends looking to meet new people, right! Now you will, guaranteed. This site allows you to make plans ahead of time with another group or team in this case.

What they say:

The main overall concept that current sites are missing is that love is not formulaic. There is no exact science to this, and too much emphasis has been put on telling you whom your match is. Well, we all know that what looks good on paper, does not always translate into reality. All of the current dating websites also are geared for 1-1 interaction, and thus cause feelings of loneliness and isolation, not to mention that they are missing the “real life” factor of how we normally socialize and meet people…with or through our friends. Couple this with the tremendous amount of fear and concern over the safety of Online Dating, TeamDating.com allows for groups of friends to use the online world as a natural extension of their current social lives, and meet other groups of friends.

The site allows for groups as small as two and as large as four. You can also create multiple teams and be on as many as three of them. This allows for all kinds of meeting combinations.

You can sign up for free and that will get your teams profile and your individual profiles in the database to be searched. Also you will be able to send other teams a Quick Hello. With paid membership you will be able to send and receive emails and see what other teams have viewed your profile. Also you can respond to other teams when they send a Quick Hello. Membership starts at $10 per team member per month and goes down even more the longer you sign up for.

If the idea of meeting another person one-on-one scares you to death and that is what has been keeping you from trying online dating then this might be the online dating site for you. Stop complaining about not meeting anyone and start meeting everyone, well at least a few teams of them anyway. Get a friend or two and try TeamDating.

Niche Dating Site of the Week: AirTroductions.com

by @ 3:54 am. Filed under Niche Dating, Site of the Week

Look up in the sky, it’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s a traveling companion. That’s right. AirTroductions is the place for the frequent flier to meet someone interesting for dating, business or just a pleasant conversation.

The basic idea is that you are about to travel somewhere so you sign up at the site and they let you know if there is anyone else in the system also traveling on that flight. Then every other time after that you fly you enter that flight information into the site and they attempt to match you with others.

What they have to say:

Whether you’re looking for a date in Los Angeles, a business networking partner in Tokyo, or just someone to share a cab from Kennedy to Midtown, look no further.

The site is pretty small right now with only 2491 people presently signed up. But as the database of users grows this sounds like a novel way to at least know ahead of time who you might be sitting in the next seat.

If you fly a lot for business or any other reason and are tired of losing the seatmate lottery then get yourself airtroduced before your next flight. Try AirTroductions and see what’s up there.
