Bookmark and Share Adds New SpeedMatching Service

( - January 27, 2004) has launched a new service called Online SpeedMatching, the first integrated online/telephone speed dating experience enabling singles to easily meet and talk to a series of dates without having to leave the house. With Online SpeedMatching, members login to an electronic pre-scheduled SpeedMatching session on the Internet where they may participate in 4 to 8 dates per session. Online SpeedMatching participants engage in a secure, four-minute "Get to know you" phone conversation with their first date before rotating to the second and third date, etc. During each phone conversation, a profile, complete with age, location, a brief biography and photo of their date is displayed on their computer screen.

"'s Online SpeedMatching is a very different, new, and exciting way for singles to comfortably meet and get to know numerous potential dates from their own homes," said Tim Sullivan, president of "This integrated online/telephone version of our popular SpeedMatching events is just one of many technologies and services will roll out in 2004 that will make online dating easier, more engaging and more results-oriented. For singles all over the world, we think it is going to be a great year on"

How it works:

* Via the SpeedMatching Website, members pick a session at a date and time that is convenient for them.

* Participants will receive two reminder emails prior to the session with instructions about when and where to login and start their first date.

* On the date and time of their session, participants login to Online SpeedMatching and are prompted to call a local number. Once connected, the computer and the phone call are synchronized.

* Participants receive an introduction to the process as well as instructions and advice, including conversation starters. They review the profile for their first date on their computer screen prior to each live phone session. A convenient on screen countdown clock indicates when the first date will start and finish.

* Once the date starts, the two parties see photos of their dates on the computer screen while they introduce themselves on the phone. After the four minute date, each participant will be given another minute to rate their date privately and indicate if they would like to have further contact with them. Ratings could be "Yes -- interested," "No -- not interested," or "Maybe -- It's worth considering." Online SpeedMatching will track mutual interest and send an email encouraging future communication.

* After the ratings are completed, the participants get to review the next profile and begin their next date. also offers live and local SpeedMatching through its offline events business, Currently available in 47 cities with plans to expand in 70 cities in the U.S. and internationally by March of 2004, SpeedMatching is an interactive live events program that allows singles to engage in up to 25 mini-dates in one evening.

According to, Online SpeedMatching is a great complement to live and local SpeedMatching because members can meet and talk to a series of potential dates even when they don't have time get dressed up and go out. A great intermediate step between making contacts via the Internet and live face-to-face meetings, Online SpeedMatching helps singles quickly meet and make contact with potential matches during their search for someone special. Online SpeedMatching members register online and are able to attend an unlimited number of scheduled events for a monthly subscription fee of $24.95. The fee is discounted to $14.95 for current subscribers.
