Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 12, 2009
The phrase "A picture is worth a thousand words" is never truer than when it is applied to online dating. After all, dating is all about finding chemistry, not filling out extensive profiles or taking personality tests to determine one's possible compatibility with complete strangers. Therefore, CrushMe.com, Chicago's newest social network, makes online dating all about that initial attraction.
Getting started on CrushMe is as simple as choosing a tagline and uploading a few pictures. Then users can start checking out local men and women (or both, depending what they prefer). Once they come across someone who catches their eye, they can "crush" them and let them they know you're interested. If the idea of actual contact is too much commitment, CrushMe users can "fave" them and save their info for later. By keeping things casual, CrushMe takes the pressure off that first meeting. Users could crush someone, find out their weekend plans, and meet up with them while they are out with your friends or even at one of CrushMe's upcoming events. No complications, no commitment - it is as simple as one, two, three - find a crush, send a crush, meet a crush!
Although online dating typically associated with individuals who can't make it happen offline (for whatever reason), people are spending an increasing amount of time online - up to 30% of their day! Accordingly, CrushMe founders Parag Humbad and Patrick Bruttell decided to develop a website where users could interact online in a way that is similar to real life. That was the beginning of CrushMe.com, where it all starts with a look - but it is up to each individual user to close the deal.
