Mobile Dating With Match.Com

This is a neat idea. Will all the dating services start to offer this?

Romance just went mobile.

Flirt anytime, anywhere with Mobile. Connect anonymously with singles near you on your mobile

Since its 2003 launch Mobile has seen more than 5.5 million chat requests, and more than 7 million messages have been sent as of June 2005.

As Roldan says, mobile dating offers a faster and more immediate way of finding other potential matches as well as enabling singles to become more flirtatious with one another; however, the one drawback is cell phone's small screens

Eventually, also hopes to enhance the service with a more enhanced location-based technology, so that mobile users could find matches in close proximity based on the location of their phone, she said.

(I can see advertisers using this in a big way. Two people make a connection on 7th Avenue, and a restaurant or bar texts a coupon for a free drink. This would be a great way to break the ice for the couple and bring in business).

Go Mobile! Mobile is currently available to Cingular, Nextel and Sprint users. Soon it will be available on other mobile providers

I work at New York based start-up I think our instant, location-based approach to mobile dating possibly offers the best user experience. Simply put, the traditional dating networks, even with mobile technology, neglect location differences and time delay.

Let me give you an idea of how we are different. The traditional model is where you message someone back and forth on a web based social network. After a few weeks of messaging back and forth, you might talk on the phone or even meet up. Our model is completely different. You give us your location and we'll show you matches in your area. If you find someone you like, you can initiate an anonymous text message conversation. After a bit of flirting, you have the option to decide what to do-- whether that's leaving it where it is, or meeting up at a neighborhood bar.

We are not a subscription based service. MeetMoi does not charge you to register or browse profiles from your phone. We do, however, charge 99 cents per bundle of 10 text messages.
