Filipino singles are culturally similar to those of the United States, and so we decided to offer a free membership as a countdown to Valentine's Day
Miami Beach, FL (PRWEB) January 29, 2009
In response to the tremendous surge in online traffic at the start of the New Year, Date.com, a leading Online Dating website with more than 10 million members worldwide, is now free in the Philippines. With thousands of local Filipino singles flocking to Date.com looking for love, a date, even a relationship, the online dating site quickly responded by providing complete access to the site to all lovelorn pinoy's.
"Filipino singles are culturally similar to those of the United States, and so we decided to offer a free membership as a countdown to Valentine's Day," said Date.com CEO Meir Strahlberg. "We've also found that the Country's new generation, which is wired and technologically advanced, is embracing online dating as opposed to working with matchmakers. By offering Date.com as a free service, thousands of local singles can take control over their own love lives to find a date, relationship, kasal and even their soul mate."
With social networking sites tops among Internet users in the Philippines, many who use that platform to search for love, free access to Date.com will be well received by Filipino singles. And, as the global recession continues to impact spending, the estimated 5 million pinoy online dating users can spend their piso's going out on actual dates as opposed to searching for one.
Beginning today, new members in the Philippines can join the site and automatically have access to Date.com's vast features. In addition to filling out personal profiles, members can also correspond with other singles via e-mail, perform basic and advanced searches, online flirt with potential dates, have access to Date.com's array of relationship and Filipino dating advice, and participate in relationship polls and surveys.
