In the previous dating article we talked extensively about “free dating war” which is kind of cold war between free internet dating sites to lure more and more online singles to their site. In the process, these sites forgot to think about the quality of the site and the requirements of online singles as they focused only to achieve high sign-ups.
While doing some research Jumpdates found that there are free internet dating sites who even posted jobs on freelance sites to get sign-ups. We don’t want to label any of these sites but, you can certainly understand the extent of black hat technique that are being employed. Sites will do much just to gain traffic, which is unfortunate because they are too busy concentrating on turnover. As a result many sites have an aged look about them and they have not kept up with the modern standards demanded by users.
Here is an idea how about having a platform like the upcoming Olympics for free internet dating sites where all the players from the dating industry would showcase their achievements with and figures. There should be a federation of online dating which keeps an eye on the entire site and create standards for dating sites. Something like ISO stands which never tell how to do business but keep and check to certain standards.

The Wikipedia definition of the concept of a car is “Car made to showcase new styling and new technology often shown at motor shows. On the same grounds Jumpdates definition of the concept of online dating sites would be “website that showcases the future way of selecting, meeting and doing virtual date before a real date”.
Conceptualizing online dating sites would have features that let you enable avatar on using profile picture and let you select clothing and prepare for the date just like you usually do on any a date night. Concept cars always come up with new designs, features and more importantly something out of the box that no other car manufacturer offers.
Similarly how about having a feature where you and your match can go on a date to some famous places that symbolizes love like the “Taj Mahal” in India. Obviously every place you visit on conceptual online dating sites would be virtual but it be the perfect setting for your date rather than sitting in the same coffee shop or restaurant with different dating partners.
The responsibility of creating a conceptual online dating sites is definitely on big player of an online dating industry and for online singles to give enough input and ideas as to what they want to see in the future of online dating sites.

Dr. Dato’s Brief:
The topic covered here is summary of interviews conducted by Karen Burkett with some online dating industry executives on the subject of love and how it relates to the industry. It is a brief account of some questions directed towards industry attendants of the iDate 2011.
To summarize the message, the meetings and conferences held at the dating conferences every year are to bring the online dating ‘business’ together into one place for further exchange of ideas, business, partnerships and more. Some of the people come to attract investors, others to provide services and many to deliver their knowledge of this industry.
I liked the catchy line used to describe this industry ‘there ain’t no romance, without finance’.
