BADONLINEDATES.COM EXPANDS THE ONLINE AND SOCIAL DATING EXPERIENCE
Bad Date TV Webisodes, an Organic Supportive Community, User Generated Content, iPhone App, and Human Connections Turns Bad Dates into Good Dates.
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 1 /PRNewswire/ — Ever had a bad date? You’re not alone. Incalculable amounts of people find themselves disappointed by their dating experiences and where do they turn – the Internet. Launching in public beta, BadOnlineDates.com (www.badonlinedates.com) is a vanguard social networking site that combines community and new technology with online dating. On BadOnlineDates.com, people can share their bad date experiences and connect with others that have similar values, turning negative experiences into positive ones. And on the plus side, the organic community content is playful and funny.
With 90 million single adults and 20 million monthly unique visitors to U.S. dating sites it’s clear that searching for some kind of romantic connection is a priority, regardless of socioeconomics, age, gender, sexual orientation and or ethnic backgrounds. However, numerous people may find that the online experience is painful and isolating.
“It’s time for a new and alternative kind of Internet dating, one that the larger mainstream sites are just not addressing,” states Jennifer Kelton, CEO and Founder. “Dating is the natural process of seeking what we’ve all been hardwired for: companionship, love and to feel safe. After 32 years of dating and at 44, I’ve created a unique place where people can share their experiences, good and bad, by using the technology that is intrinsic to their everyday lives.”
Unlike impersonal sites like Match.com, BadOnlineDates.com provides community members with more sophisticated social tools that they already use in their everyday lives: an iPhone application companion that acts as a virtual wingman, online story and photo sharing, community commentary, social applications like Twitter, entertaining online videos, and an intuitive interface. Combined with human editorial, real live expert advice and a vast selection of like-minded potential matches, BadOnlineDates.com turns bad dating experiences into great ones, transforming dating from what is, at times, a painful, frustrating and isolating series of rejections into a positive online social experience more comparable to the interactions on Facebook, Digg, Twitter and Flickr.
