Mobile dating websites, in order to increase the opportunities for meeting, focus attention on users that share the same social network and proximity.Some companies even offer services such as homing devices to alert users when another user is within thirty feet of one another.Others believe it is all about choice, as Joe Brennan Jr., vice president of Webdate says, "It's about giving people a choice. They can date on their handset, it's all about letting people decide what path is best for them." A recently published study shows that currently 7.8 million singles in the UK search for a partner online every month.This is already a significant increase from 2011 (6.3 million).
Proxi Dating was one of the first dating services using bluetooth.
Some systems involve bluetooth technology to connect users in locations such as bars and clubs. These systems are actually more popular in some countries in Europe and Asia than online dating.
With the advent of GPS Phones and GSM localization, proximity dating is likely to rise sharply in popularity.
These services allow their users to provide information about themselves in a short profile which is either stored in their phones as a dating ID or as a username on the mobile dating site.
They can then search for other IDs online or by calling a certain phone number dictated by the service.
