Bethesda, MD (PRWEB) September 19, 2008
FastLife.com, the world's largest speed dating service, has partnered with Honestly Online Inc. to launch Prestige Speed Dating, designed exclusively for established singles concerned about the personal history of the people they date. Set to launch Thursday, September 25th in New York City, the innovative new format, which includes a state-of-the-art identity verification check, has already exceeded expectations in registration and enrolment.
The launch, to be held at Touch in Manhattan's trendy Clinton/Hell's Kitchen district, will cater to 20 qualified, singles - the country's very first Prestige daters. To qualify as "Prestige", candidates must consent to - and pass - Honesty Online's detailed verification check. Once a candidate's background has been qualified they may attend the upmarket Prestige Speed Dating events.
Born from client demand, Prestige Speed Dating widely appeals to a particular variety of professional and established singles across the US. For some well-off Americans, Prestige offers the certainty of meeting and dating other socially and financially sound individuals. "When you reach a certain level of prosperity it begins to affect your dating and relationships," explains Adam Zedler, an investment banker who hails from the Upper East Side. "You get treated differently. I'm not saying every girl is after status or money, or that I don't want to date people who aren't rich, but dating others who match your background makes it easier by taking money out of the equation entirely."
To ensure a legitimate and authentic profiling process, FastLife has partnered with Honesty Online, the most trusted verification service available online. Using its proprietary system, Honesty Online only requires singles to provide their name, address and date of birth to verify the validity of their identity, after which singles are asked to answer a series of questions to confirm that the identity is truly theirs. The entire process - which is considered one of the web's most accurate authentication programs - takes users only a matter of minutes to complete. For the launch event, Honesty Online will also preview a future offering -a credit check of all participants in Prestige's launch event. In addition, FastLife will require each applicant to fax a copy of their business card reflecting their place of employment and their position within the company as well as submit to a telephone interview with a FastLife representative. Honesty Online will be providing a thorough employment and reference check in the next quarter.
FastLife, known for offering premium service, chose to partner with Honesty Online because of their track record as a leading verification and certification service for online markets such as Internet dating, social networking, recruitment and ecommerce. Additionally, in order to protect personal data, Honesty's unique identification service requires as little personal information as possible to be passed over the Internet. Honesty Online also maintains a strict security system to ensure that personal information is securely stored.
Launching this September in New York City, and with registry already open across the United States and Canada, Prestige Speed Dating will be offered in all major US cities by the new year.
