Here’s a personal story of a mail-order bride.
It’s all over the news, but if you have not read it yet, heres a short summary on how a lost iPhone was recovered using a dating site.
Nadal Niremberg, member of a online dating community had forgotten his phone on a cab right on New Year’s Eve (poor guy). Remembering that his online dating profile was linked to his phone, he decided to give it a go and try to lure the thief into a meet.
Going online, he created a female profile on OkCupid. Uploading a busty women showing cleavage he was sure would attract the iPhone looter. Then he started communicating.
“My best version of talking as a girl as a flirty girl, I should say, is adding winky face emoticons,” he says.
Luckily the thief was a guy, so he took bait for the meet adding also that the target asked “Will you kiss me?”
Niremberg smirkily answered “Well .. I don’t have a boyfriend.” So the plan was to meet up at Niremberg’s Brookly apartment. That was where the date was to take place.
The target showed up wearing a nice jacket, smell of cologne and a bottle of wine. Niremberg followed him up the stairs and while the he turned around, Niremberg decided to spill the secret right there. Handing the target a $20 bill and a hammer in his other hand, the thief handed over the phone and took off.
Now here’s a prime example of how dating sites can help you. Just thought I’d share this story.
Just came across this picture at 16quotes.com and it just felt right to post it.
Projections for the year 2014 have been quite overwhelming with hundreds if not thousands of Indian dating sites. I am not sure if it’s justme, but this emergence of Indian dating sites has got me to think of a rebellious+curious kid. How parents gridlock their child (AKA protecting ones child) makes these kids want to venture out even more. Not only seen among children, but also among adults. The more you tell them not to do something the more they do it. So in India, where they are somewhat forced to have arranged marriages which seems not to do so well with the younger generation of kids. Thus, these teenagers or even younger adults venture into online dating as it is more discreet and something you can do behind closed doors.
From the picture on the right hand side, estimates go way beyond your imagination with an estimated user base of 25 million and a projected $200 million market by 2014. With so much population, anyone looking to make some profit might want to enter this database as it is not completely saturated yet and many more will come looking. So if you’re looking to start, heres a list of Indian dating sites you might want to start with.

Not sure if you have read, but a guy at OkCupid decided to do a test to see how many responses he would get by creating a girl profile and uploaded a really cute image of a girl. However in the description, there were loads of weird answers and answers which in real life would actually cause you to quit talking to the girl immediately. But turns out her profile got 39 messages in under 6 hours. Let’s she how she/he did it and some of the lame answers she got.
