Stephen’s Date Update

StephenHi. It’s Stephen with my date update from Mobile Dating BootCamp.

They updated the How About We app for iPhone, and since the upgrade, the app constantly fails upon entering the message inbox. Other than that I find that posting a witty idea increases the likelihood of a response.

The common flaw of on-line dating: I nabbed a couple dates off OK Cupid and How About We over the past weekend, however none of the dates matched any of their photos, as they were either old or obscure.

I worked with Julie Spira who critiqued my profile to enhance my chances of meeting someone. I wondered if I had the right photos posted and if my description was too long/short? Julie helped me increase my dating probability by widening my age range, changed my primary photo which Stephen - Mobile Dating BootCampincluded a blurry photo of me and with two other women, which she said was a huge turn-off to women. We also included a bit more information on my profile.

Since the changes, I have locked down two dates already this week. Overall both applications were also helpful. I recommend OkCupid for those interested in a casual way of meeting people. I recommend How About We for the more serious daters.

Stephen’s Journey – Mobile Dating BootCamp

StephenHi, it’s Stephen with my first blog post.

I have been testing out OK Cupid and How About We…

I find that many of the profiles on OK Cupid are actually real. This is surprising as it is a free service and one would think that it would have more fake profiles. However, considering that How About We is a subscription service, I think it actually had a couple fake girls. Both interfaces are very user friendly as far as updating profiles, searching dates and sending messages.

The principle behind How About We is that users post ideas that dates can respond to. Suggestions are streamed for daters to browse. I did notice another problem where I noticed many of the profiles had the same exact suggestion.

OK Cupid has been around a lot longer, so they’ve been able to perfect their software. I feel it’s fine the way it is, and if they make any drastic changes it would be a mistake. The most interesting feature is the match feature which tries to match dates according to specific dating questions and answers.

I’m hoping to have my first date this week and will keep you posted.
