Dating Site Uses Geolocation to Connect Members
Posted on October 13, 2011CupidRadar, a new dating website, uses geolocation technologies on smartphones and other mobile devices to connect singles. The service can be used by singles to find other singles who are close by. Singing up is free, but it cost $2 to send an initial message to a member.
CupidRadar gives an example of a single who uses the service to search for a single to share a chocolate cookie with them. The service has a "Go Invisible" feature for those moments when you don't want to contacted by a nearby single person.
Mehrdad Sarlak, President of CupidRadar, says in a statement, "I've always been fascinated by the idea that what if unknown to you, your soul mate were nearby right now? And what if you could contact and even meet that person? Well, I came up with CupidRadar to help people do just that! CupidRadar helps you meet face to face faster. That's important because in person, you know within minutes whether there's a connection. With traditional dating sites, you might spend weeks messaging back and forth only to realize when you finally meet, that it's not a good fit."
