Liberal Dating Guide for Democratic SinglesConsider the following before participating in online dating, personal ads or matchmaking sites:
What You Need is a safe, practical way to screen, evaluate, and
communicate with potential partners from a selection of the most qualified
candidates. We provide those tools and a headstart within a community built by and for liberal-hearted, like-minded progressives who are passionate about building a better world.
Who You Do Business with is one of the last infuential powers you have today. It may matter to you that money spent on "Angel Soft" will be used against you by the Koch brothers next election. And it may matter to you that a matchmaking service promoting "harmony" is programmed by an Evangelical conservative who has rejected applications based on lifestyle preferences, and that a "blue state" dating service also runs a "red state" dating site that jokes, "no one should have to date a liberal!" Your FREE participation helps support LiberalHearts.com and if you order weekly matches, 10% to 80% of your fee goes to progressive organizations.
Don't over expose yourself. As a marketing tool, dating sites may let anyone browse your photo and profile, and that may include your neighbors, co-workers, and employer even if they are not members!
We do not require your real name, home address
or phone number and you can correspond with matches without giving out your
real email address. Only your top matches will know that, for example, you're a "Liberal Vegetarian Democratic single in NY who supports animal rights and Elizabeth Warren." And because matches are screened for qualifications
that are acceptable to BOTH members, they are likely to be just like you.
Don't be a swayed by a Photo in a Personals
Ad that a dating site may use as bait. Even members themselves may try to scam you with a phony photo. MSNBC
reported that "Two of the three women Don (their reporter) tried to contact through
a top personal ad website, turned out to be fakes." Even legitimate photos are a problem for typical dating sites that permit "browsing". The most
attractive ads are flooded with email and the rest have their most important
assets overlooked. We make compatibility
the first priority, not picture quality, by only allowing members to view the photos of matches who meet each other's qualifications and score highest in compatibility.
(Warning: This ad is our attempt at humor. If you are
compelled to click on the first
pretty face you see, you are in danger of being a contributor to the 58% divorce rate!)
Online Personal Ads may get you
attention if you know a few good lines but most often result in wasted time
when both parties discover their differences. With our system, you don't have to be a great essay writer to stand out. Our progressive, 2ofakind match technology
allows members to screen and score each other from a selection of over 150 interests, preferences,
and priorities they choose. To try to evaluate as many people within your social circles would take a lifetime.
Using a MatchMaking System to sort through
thousands of singles profiles makes a lot of sense - as long as you are
in control. Typical matchmaking services rely on the value judgments of
the program designer. Our system
allows you to program the
perfect match yourself in 3 dimensions - what you like, how much
you like it, and how important it is in relation to everything
else - intuitively, in just minutes!
Don't put your Faith in Questionable Questionnaires!
application asks for simple responses
that don't try to evaluate you psychologically or tempt anyone to exaggerate
(e.g. rate your looks, income etc.) There are no "best answers" so you
can expect meaningful match results.
Services may claim Large Memberships but
don't clean out their database of members who change their email address,
lose interest, etc.. We
regularly verify member's email addresses and their interest in participating and purge the member database.
If you Send a Message, will it be Read? Most singles services have you send and receive messages
in a mailbox at their site. However, after a few weeks most users stop returning to the site
and their messages remain unread. We forward email messages directly to your
match's regular email address so that you can be sure they will read it.
There are no 100% Free Dating Services, despite what they say. However, you should never pay membership fees just to participate. We send you a Free
Match Report of your most compatible matches. Then, you
can continue to receive Free matches anytime you qualify for someone else's
report and if they send you a message, you can respond Free. Optionally, you can subscribe for your own weekly match reports for $1 per match.
10% to 80% is donated to liberal hearted organizations.
If you sign up for monthly billing, will you get monthly results? Or will it end up like your monthly health club fee, where you stop going but keep paying.Our subscribers pay for results, not time. You pay $1 per match for a set number of qualified matches and you are never charged again unless you order more matches.
it means they can share your info with ANY company! They may even ask for info relevant to their advertisers rather than the dating process. And the fine print says they can use your Internet browsing history, search history, and the contents of your communications with members! Your 2ofakind account only requires data for matchmaking, it is not shared with ANY company and our service is ad free.
