More on Match.com’s New Free Online Dating Service

3

(Online Dating Newsletter) Several week’s ago we told you that Match.com had launched a free online dating service to compete against other popular free online dating services. Late last week, Match.com confirmed, via a press release, that DownToEarth.com was its new foray into the free online dating marketplace. Many additional details have emerged from the press release. Here are a few:

“DownToEarth.com’s cornerstone feature, RealRatings, encourages daters, after meeting in person, to rate the accuracy of the information provided in the other person’s profile. The five-star rating system allows daters to score the other person’s accuracy from ‘Not Even Close’ (one star) to ‘True to Life’ (five stars). Through actively encouraging daters to participate, DownToEarth.com empowers its community to create the dating environment they’re seeking.

DownToEarth.com is led by General Manager Jacob Solotaroff, an expert in online security and fraud prevention. Previously the Director of Member Integrity at Match.com, Solotaroff is credited with creating state-of-the-art technology to protect and enhance online dating.”

Dave Evans recently did an interview with the Solotaroff that you can read here. You can also read our original post about DownToEarth.com here.

    Wow, I bet this service takes off! It’s too bad they didn’t have this around 6 years ago; a ratings system would have saved me a lot of time and error. Match.com will be the leader in online dating if they continue with these great improvements!

    In all honesty, all dating sites should have had this feature from the start. Liars are rampant in the online space and we need better safeguards to ensure that people are as advertised in real life. Hopefully, there’s additional safeguards here to avoid people who just want to tarnish other daters’ reputations….

    I agree that dating sites should have some method in place for “ratings” or at least a way for people to report liars and/or scammers. It would save many other people time and money. Heck just getting rid of all the married people who claim they are single in their profiles would be a huge plus!
