The last I heard they were pulling in 15,000 new registered users (not members) a day.
But instead investigating the large dating companies further, eharmony, lavalife, tickle, and Date.com, I decided to take a look at a company who owns Niche Dating websites.
In my opinion dating websites are profitable IF you combine (1) social networking features (2) offline interactions (3) go after a niche market (4) offer something & don’t.
In 2004/2005 an Emerging Technology now called “Social Networking Software” paved the way for many Social Networking Trends.
Alternatively, you can start developing your own unique idea.
Consider vegetarians, smokers, food lovers or pretty much anyone else as potential target audiences.
One of my favorite Dating Internet Businesses I worked on was (not online anymore) Mocha
The owner started an online/offline dating community for African Americans in her home town.
Think up a short and catchy name with a prominent top-level domain.
