Democratic Singles Guide
Consider the following before participating in online dating, personal ads or
What You Need is a secure, practical way to screen, evaluate, and
communicate with potential partners from a selection of the most qualified
candidates. We provide those tools. And because our system
is built by and for liberals, progressives, Greens and Democratic singles, you've got an important head start
in an environment with kindred spirits who are passionate about what they
believe in. Your participation helps to support our site and the growth of
our online community. If you choose to upgrade your FREE membership, 10 to 75% of the fee is donated to liberal hearted organizations.
Personal Ads & Chat Lines may get you
some 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 as effectively using
"personals ads" or "chat lines" would take a lifetime.
Don't expose yourself by giving out too much
information. 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. Also, you may not want everyone to have browsing access to your profile, including your employer, co-workers and neighbors. With our system, only your top matches know you're a "Democratic single from NY who loves vegetarian foods and cats" etc., and odds are they're also going to be a "Democratic single from NY who loves vegetarian foods and cats" etc..
Don't be a swayed by a Photo in a Personals
Ad that some dating services may use as bait. Even members themselves may post
phony photo ads which end up luring you to a porn site. In a recent article, MSNBC
reported that "Two of the three women Don (their reporter) tried to contact through
the top personal ad website, turned out to be fakes." Even legitimate photos can present problems for typical personals sites that permit "browsing". The most
attractive ads are overloaded 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 high 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!)
Using a Match Making 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 be your own matchmaker. You 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
Don't put your Faith in Questionable Questionnaires! Our
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.
One heavily advertised matchmaking site (beginning with "e") was designed by an Evangelical Dr. with strong ties to the conservative community. His service actually rejects profiles that don't fit into their matching scheme, and they don't serve the Gay community at all.
Services that allow anyone to browse
their database will subject you to a lot of people that donít meet your
qualifications. Our matches are screened for qualifications
that are acceptable to BOTH members. Also, browsing requires that you return to the
service often and do the work. With our
system you enter the criteria once and the program evaluates new applicants for you once
a week and delivers the results to your regular email
Services may claim Large Memberships but
don't clean out their database of members who change their email address,
lose interest, etc.. We
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 the ads 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 70% is donated to a liberal hearted charity.
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
rather than paying for a recurring time period of using the service.
it means they can share your information with ANYONE. They ask you for information that is not relevant to the dating or matching process but that is relevant to their advertisers. And they can use your Internet browsing history, search history, and the contents of communications between you and other members.
We have been connecting like-minded people online since 1996. You only submit data that is required for matching and it is not shared with ANY other company. In keeping with our philosophy and in consideration of your time and space, you will find that our matchmaking service is ad free.
