No one should ever be put in a box. Mesh wants people to be true to themselves. And we mean it when we say that we welcome everyone.

Brooklyn, New York (PRWEB) July 08, 2014

Brooklyn-based Mesh (http://www.meshbetter.com), the first online dating service with advanced message filtering, announces its newly expanded gender and sexual orientation identification options that allows queer, transgender and non-binary people to identify as themselves and to be matched with their preferred partners. Mesh is the first mainstream online dating service to offer these identification options. And it’s all completely free.

“No one should ever be put in a box,” said Yeni Sleidi, co-founder and LGBTQ Community Liaison of Mesh Labs Inc. “Mesh wants people to be true to themselves. And we mean it when we say that we welcome everyone.”

The online dating site kicked off its pre-beta launch two weeks ago and took feedback from users seriously. During this time, Mesh actively listened and expanded upon its original identification offerings of “transgender” and “queer” to include “non-binary” as a gender option.

“We take all of our users’ comments and concerns very seriously. Our mission is to provide the best online dating experience possible for everyone, regardless of gender or sexual orientation,” said Yeni Sleidi.

In addition to expanded identification options, Mesh has pioneered many other user-friendly features, including patent-pending Mismatch® and Dealbreakers®, for a better online dating experience:

  • Mismatch®: Automatically weeds out unfit matches and sub-par messages containing vulgarity, text-speak, poor grammar/spelling and copy-and-pastes based on a user’s preferences.
  • Dealbreakers®: Ensures that users only receive messages from those who passed their non-negotiable questions (e.g. - Do you believe in evolution? Are you a smoker?)

“We created Mesh to fix free online dating. Instead of being bombarded by unwanted messages, Mesh helps you focus on just the right people. You shouldn’t have to constantly sift through those who aren’t what you’re looking for,” said Asher Snyder, founder and Chief Executive Officer of Mesh Labs Inc. “And we’re only going to get better from here.”

Mesh recently launched its pre-beta and will open its beta version soon, starting with New York, New Jersey and Connecticut. Full launch plans are expected by fall of 2014, with matching mobile apps. Request your invite now at http://www.meshbetter.com.
