"Goose Me!" It's not your typical pick-up line, but it is one that singles all over are starting to use. DuckDuckDate.com, an innovative dating website, is open for business and helping singles everywhere to "goose" each other. Originally conceived by a veteran online dater, DuckDuckDate was designed to make online dating less stressful and more fun.
A carefully crafted set of connection rules that expand on the fun Duck Duck Goose theme solve the problems of date-spamming and introduction anxiety. Date-spamming is when online daters resort to sending many generic introductions with the expectation of a low response rate. Introduction anxiety results from spending a lot of time writing a personalized and thoughtful introductory message without knowing if the other person is even interested.
To make an introduction on DuckDuckDate, you send a "Goose" request, a simple one-click action that shows your interest. The recipient has 24 hours to respond with a "Goose" (let's talk), "Duck" (maybe later), or "Block" (not going to happen). If your request is successful and you get a "Goose" response back, you can then send that personalized message knowing that the interest is mutual. To combat date spamming, members are limited to 3 open goose requests at a time.
The DuckDuckDate team didn't stop there. They also developed a dating calendar system which allows members to post events such as a movie release or a concert, or to simply indicate their availability for a coffee or lunch date. Members can search these events by any combination of date, location and description. DuckDuckDate expects the dating calendar to be one of the most-used tools on the site because it helps members find real dates, real quick!
Finally, DuckDuckDate brings a new pay-per-connection business model to online dating. Simply put, each member of a new goose connection (goose & accepted goose) pays a one-time fee of a dollar a date. This small investment encourages everyone to be sincere in making the connection. It also keeps ads off of the site and is a low-cost alternative to the stress-inducing monthly fees charged by many popular dating sites. In addition, DuckDuckDate is currently giving new members 3 free gooses during signup.
