Gelato: Real Dating In Real Time

November 17, 2009

Gelato is the next generation of online dating. Instead of canned profiles and a bunch of questions of who you are or what you like, you can instead import the same information with less effort and more accuracy from the sites you use every day. Not only that, but your profile is updated constantly by your activity on those other sites.

There are no passwords to forget, simply sign in through Twitter or Facebook and import the data you want. This makes up most of your profile on Gelato.

Sure sure, if you want your regular “I like to take long walks on the beach” typed in profile, there is a space for that, but its not really needed.

Through your online updates, people can really get to know you. The real you. In real time. Your stream says a lot about you and your interests making it much easier for someone who shares those interests to find you.

Gelato also doesn’t limit its information to Twitter and Facebook. Gelato allows you import data from many of your favorite sites to help further your chances of finding a good match.

Music Buff? Rather than having your fingers fall off trying to type your list of favorite songs. Instead, you can add feeds from Pandora or Last.fm.

Photographer? You can import your Flickr.

Movies or TV more your thing? Import feeds from Hulu and Netflix.

You can also import information from Seesmic and Amazon.

Our creator, Steve Odom has made it so that with Gelato, you don’t have to work so hard to just be yourself. With our stream and the variety of imported information you choose, the old standby profiles are yesterday.

One of the greatest things though about Gelato is that with our feeds we make it hard to be fake. On normal sites with simple written profiles, its easy to lie and misrepresent yourself. With our feeds, it takes a whole lot more effort on quite a few other sites to really pull it off.

We’re all about genuine people finding like-minded people. That makes for better dates. And that is Gelato.

Not Business as Usual. Social Network Powered Dating FTW.

November 10, 2009

I consider myself a battle hardened and tested veteran of the dating game. A first class adept of the first date. Sure, some of you may think I’ve never enjoyed the touch of a woman above the knee, but I’ll let you know that I have done it and I haven’t had to pay for it…

I’m not sure what the above has to do with this post, just follow me, okay. With the adoption of social networks by the masses to share information and collaborate it has created this gigantic cyber vacuum for people to connect in ways that weren’t really possible… Change is on the horizon, friends.
