Since Valentine’s Day is almost upon us once more, we thought it’d be quite apt to feature a startup which has love at its very core as our latest Startup of the Week.
DateMy is an online matchmaking platform which effectively enables you to help someone you love find love. All together now...Aaah…
Here’s how it works:
As a Matchmaker, you firstly sign up and create a profile for your single pal and indicate your relationship to them - friend, brother, work colleague, whatever. Then select up to three possible matches for them. Datemy will then send them an email invite where they can see their profile, your suggested matches and the option to subscribe to the platform. Once that’s done and they’ve signed up, you can search the Datemy platform and make matches for them by sending and receiving Matchmaker requests with other Matchmakers. When a match is made, you can arrange a blind date for them!
Registered members have the option to update their own profiles, search and share other single people with their Matchmaker and even send a prompt to a Matchmaker about someone they’d like to get to know a little more but who they haven’t been matched with yet.
Online dating is without doubt here to stay and the DateMy platform seems to have carved out a novel and wholesome niche in what is a pretty competitive market.
That’s surely no bad thing....
Check out the short video below which will give you a little further insight into how it all works.
