Over the first few months of 2012, a large number of online dating sites have been rewriting their basic software, even their essential business concepts.
This is being done partly to meet the increasing need of Security and Safety for their dating members. It also represents an increased realisation by older relationship websites that their methods of connecting men and women who are seeking a friend, romantic partner or life partner are not working.
The Niche Dating Sites (such as BBW or Interracial dating) have become the most popular and effective programs because they allow members to focus on finding a match who shares their values, dreams and passions.
In an attempt to draw back members who are “seeking for love,” these redesigns by older, non-niche generic services can be tweaks to existing software — or a complete rewriting of their business platforms. Some are more successful than others. At the same time, new dating services are appearing that offer new ways of connecting singles seeking to find a love. Or perhaps the best way of putting it is “old is new again.”
Link4Love is such a new social dating and matchmaking community, introducing a “new way to leverage mutual connections to meet singles and find love.”
Link4Love “bypasses unproven algorithm-based matching by bringing the age-old technique of community matchmaking to the web. Current online dating sites focus on computer-generated matches without any validation of profiles, or human feedback and references.”
Meeting compatible singles validated by mutual connections and community members relieves online daters’ fears of “fake profiles, creepy felons and cheaters” who linger and hide on the well-known mega-member dating sites. Through friends of friends, Link4Love also brings together “like-minded” men and women with mutual interests assuring better compatibility for long-term relationships and marriages.
Link4Love believes no one knows you better than your own personal network. Consisting of “Seekers” — singles looking to find love – and “Matchmakers” including friends, family and community members, Link4Love provides a platform for both profile types to connect, validate and refer relationship seekers based on love and trust.
A recent study by MBAProgams.org revealed that while 17% of married couples met online, over 27% of married couples met through a family or a friend. Link4Love brings the “human touch” to meeting new people and developing a relationship while providing the convenience of reach of the web.
Founder Narine Galstian created the website after she tried online dating and found most online dating sites merely offered unsuccessful algorithm matching that failed to address the fundamental difficulties of looking for a life companion.
Before creating her dating site, Narine worked for GridIron Software and was a Marketing exec at various tech startups.
“Searching for a significant other should not feel like an online ‘shopping’ experience. These are people, not shoes! We are inherently social beings and look to our friends, family and social community for referrals, advice, and approval of significant others,” explained Narine, who concluded, ”Link4Love offers singles the opportunity to tap into their community to vouch for them with testimonials and recommendations, while welcoming introductions and matches from Matchmakers they choose to link with. Link4Love members enjoy a friendly, collaborative, and compassionate online dating environment.”
Like all dating websites that WUVING recomends, Link4Love is free to join. Premium Services are available based on monthly subscription plans. Link4Love Blog (blog.link4love.com) offers dating and relationship advice for singles and couples. You can “Like” Link4Love on Facebook.
Online Dating Site Reviews Conclusion: Although the Niche dating sites still dominate the relationship scene, allowing men seeking women, for instance, to meet women with the same personal interests – the new “community-based” platforms are proving effective for local dating. By going back to the old matchmaking methods of pre-Web times, new dating sites are able to provide an effective service. Link4Love is a superior example of this platform.
Link4Love is an online dating and matchmaking community providing a reliable and trusted resource for relationship seekers looking to meet compatible singles. Link4Love leverages social, personal and professional connections to validate and recommend seekers, linking compatible singles through mutual connections and Matchmakers. Link4Love bypasses algorithm based matching by bringing the age-old technique of community matchmaking to the web.
