New York, NY (PRWEB) March 22, 2007
As the University of Florida continues its march through the NCAA basketball tournament in defense of its national title, good spirits must be flowing through the Gainesville campus as evidenced by the school's rise to the #2 spot this week in the IamFreeTonight.com rankings of the Top Colleges for Online Dating. IamFreeTonight.com speculates that the combination of students' excitement over the basketball team's success in the NCAA Tournament combined with the arrival of Spring Break is causing romance to blossom as Florida students are eager to find a spring fling and have turned to online dating to IamFreeTonight.com.
When the NCAA tournament began last week, the University of Florida ranked as the # 4 Top College for Online Dating, but wins over Jackson St. and Purdue have propelled the school to # 2 in the rankings, trailing only the University of Houston. Should Florida defeat Butler University in the Sweet 16, one can only speculate as to whether March Madness will continue to spread on the Florida campus and help the Gators reach the top spot in the rankings.
The IamFreeTonight.com rankings of the Top 25 Colleges for Online Dating are similar to the popular polls found in the NCAA Basketball Tournament during March Madness and the College Football BCS, and are based on a complex mathematical formula incorporating numerous variables relating to how college singles interact on the IamFreeTonight.com website. However, unlike similar polls which are purely subjective, personal opinions are not factored into the IamFreeTonight.com rankings at all, thereby making the results more credible and accurate. The IamFreeTonight.com Rankings of the Top 25 Colleges for Online Dating have daily and weekly updates.
IamFreeTonight.com has also created discussion forums for college students to discuss and debate these rankings. IamFreeTonight.com is an ideal free online dating service for college singles due to its unique Date Now! & 'Wingman' features. Date Now! enables college students to post their availability to meet singles and find a date instantly while the 'Wingman' concept enables singles to meet people by going out on double or group dates to meet other college girls and guys.
Some notable changes in the rankings from last week include:
University of Florida: moves up to #2 previously ranked #4
LSU (Louisiana State University): moves up to #3 previously ranked #48.
University of Arizona: moves up to # 6, previously ranked #11.
University of Maryland: moves up to #13, previously unranked.
