If you’ve ever wondered whether some of these dating/match-making/friend-finding websites are seat-of-the-pant fly-by-nights, here’s a clue: For $150 you can get the software to start your own, with a starter “database of Russian, Ukrainian, Europe and American ladies’ profiles!” thrown in, possibly, for free.
Pilot Group’s blurb for its Ready Dating Site Solution says: “Here is your opportunity to benefit from a portion of those chemicals [sic] charged exchanges flying around cyberspace. We gladly introduce to your attention [sic] a universal building site solution that will help you in making all necessary steps and quickly start gaining benefit. The topic of online dating is extremely popular today: did you know that in accordance with Search Engines statistics dating -related web sites are sought for 5 times more frequently if compared to web design and development. These figures must tell something!” (Yes, they tell us it’s too good an opportunity to pass up for the quick-buck brigade…)
Your $150 (down from the usual price of $500) will get you all the software to start up your website and a user installation manual. It’s not quite clear from the text whether the “database of Russian, Ukrainian, Europe and American ladies’ profiles!” comes for free or not. If it is I’m going for it. What better way of tilting the odds of online dating in your favour than to actually own the site?
