Since its inception, BadOnlineDates.com has helped hundreds of lonely hearts form friendships, share laughs and meet potential soul mates. The brain child of dating/relationship expert and author Jennifer Kelton, the site is what happens when one combines a social networking with a matchmaking service.
This article, found on PR Newswire, elaborates on why this very unique dating site has tongues wagging. Launched on October 18th, 2007, BadOnlineDates even had people lined up at the door to sign up upon its grand unvieling.
“I am so excited by the overwhelming response to BadOnlineDates.com, but not surprised,” said Kelton, who conceived the idea for BadOnlineDates.com while writing her reality-based dating and mating book, “Don’t Use My Sweater Like A Towel, “Dating is the one topic that everyone can relate to regardless of race, religion, nationality, economics or even sexual orientation.”
Okay, great, but just what “is” behind the irreverent dating phenomenon?
Simple. It’s a singles web page that offers a unique perspective on the genre. Instead of wading through myriads of uninspiring ads by people who wax on and on about what a great catch they are, Kelton invites people to share their bad dating experiences, which she feels creates a commonality that connects us all.
For kicks, I visited the site and read some of the testimonials! Ouch! I thought I had been on some bad dates, but some of these people had me beat hands down! Even though I am now quite happily married, I wanted to post to see what kind of response I would get for my own horror stories.
The site has a terrific lay out and is easy to navigate. Before you even register you can read featured stories, then, if so inclined, post replies (you will have to register to reply though). Most everyone seemed to be polite and some folks made funny and or poignant observations about the nature of modern dating.
The site claims to be 100 percent free and offers what most other sites do–the ability to create a profile, post photo’s and browse other ads.
This brainchild of Kelton’s could start an internet dating revolution, one where competitors at least attempt to come up with creative and clever matchmaking sites that give customers more real options.
Bad Online Dates also appears to be genuinely free and the stories are fun, insightful or just downright sad.
Kelton’s site is an eye opening spin on an old idea and I for one hope that it is successful if for no other reason but to provide a nice little adrenalin injection pinch in the withered arm of online dating!
World renowned dating expert Jennifer Kelton also has another popular dating website called DailyDatingAdvice.com.
