What Dating Services Does The Company Offer?

AdoptAGuy.com is a free online dating site where women always make the first move. Inside AdoptAGuy.com’s "Supermarket of Love," a woman shops for “products” at her leisure. When she’s ready to commit, she places as many products as she likes in her “cart,” opening the lines of communication. Until then, men sit on the shelf, competing for attention and waiting to get noticed.

What Makes The Dating Service Unique?

AdoptAGuy.com has made it quick and easy for singles to sign up and begin searching for potential mates. Unlike other dating websites, there are no algorithms or lengthy questionnaires to fill out. Instead, members are asked to answer a short series of fun, revealing questions that get to the core of who they are and what they are looking for. These questions help other users find out important facts about them, as well as their preferences in topics like eating habits, facial hair, fashion style and vices such as smoking and drinking. Once users have filled out their profile with as much/little information as they wish, they have the freedom to browse the site at their leisure for their special someone to spend a night, month, year or eternity with.

The site is designed to resemble an online dating “supermarket of love” where women can browse fully stocked aisles of “products” until they find Mr. Right, or Mr. Right Now. When a woman finds a man that catches her eye, she can place him in her “cart”, meaning he has been “adopted”, and only then can the “product” talk back. If a man does not wish to be “adopted”, he has the ability to remove himself from her “cart”, keeping her from being able to contact him.

AdoptAGuy.com has created several features to help members decide who would be worth their time pursuing. Many of these features are aimed specifically at women to help them decide which “products” are the studs, and which are the duds.

· “Carts”: When a woman locates a man she wants to pursue, she lets him know of her intentions by placing him in her “cart”, allowing them to send messages, emails, or chat.

· “Charms”: Men can send “charms” to women they find attractive, making her aware that her possible Casanova would like to begin communicating. To maximize their value, men can only send 10 “charms” a day.

· Popularity Points: Each member receives popularity points every time another member visits their page, sends them a “charm” or message – making them more desirable to the opposite sex.

· Location: Members are presented with thirty users in their geographic region every time they sign in to their profile, as well as a map illustrating how far potential matches live from them, narrowing the field of “products” to those that would be available for in-person pick-up.

· Search: Every member of AdoptAGuy.com has the power to search the site for potential matches based on location, age, or vices.
