Today, online dating is the #1 choice for many people to find that special someone. The latest statistics confirm the popularity of online dating sites: a) last year 17% of couples who married met on a dating site; b) one in five singles have dated someone they met on a dating site; c) one in five singles are currently in a committed relationship with someone they met on a dating site. (We aim to more than double that figure.) It's a big industry -- now worth $4 billion worldwide.
Unfortunately, the vast majority of web-based dating sites are really dog-and-pony shows. They tease you with possible matches -- sent to you daily -- that are usually not even close to the kind of person that you're looking for.
Other sites have dead members -- old customers no longer paying who are kept in the database to entice you to join. One of the leading dating sites claims to have over 20 million members but in reality the number is closer to 1.5 million paying customers. Some of those 20 million members are people who simply gave their e-mail addresses and filled out a username and password. Nothing more.
If You're Single is really a breath of fresh air in this sea of dishonesty. Its founder Larry Goodman went through the dating wars and knew that there had to be a better way. This is why he chose to make the whole process as fun and painless as possible.
