Now, even online dating sites, such as gets their own mobile version., one of the web’s pioneering online dating sites will be launching an interface for mobile users. MatchMobile will allow users to receive text messages to their mobile phones whenever another Match member sends them an e-mail. Matchmobile, which will be initially available in the United States, UK and Canada, will also allow subscribers to search for potential matches on their mobile phones. The service will also be available in other nine countries at the end of the year.

So, for those who can’t get enough of dating services on their PCs, now they can stay in-touch with their networks in and monitor possible matches even when they are on the go. To avail of this new service, an extra fee of $5 month will be charge to members.

Anybody desperate enough to have this kind of service delivered to their mobile phones and willing to pay $5/month? I could just imagine how many are into this kind of stuff?

    It’s really incredible what amount of money people spendon dating services. 5$/month is not that much.

    Anyway, the mobile web is growing, which can be only a good thing for the consumers.

    I work at New York based start-up I think our instant, location-based approach to mobile dating possibly offers the best user experience. Simply put, the traditional dating networks, even with mobile technology, neglect location differences and time delay.

    Let me give you an idea of how we are different. The traditional model is where you message someone back and forth on a web based social network. After a few weeks of messaging back and forth, you might talk on the phone or even meet up. Our model is completely different. You give us your location and we’ll show you matches in your area. If you find someone you like, you can initiate an anonymous text message conversation. After a bit of flirting, you have the option to decide what to do– whether that’s leaving it where it is, or meeting up at a neighborhood bar.

    We are not a subscription based service. MeetMoi does not charge you to register or browse profiles from your phone. We do, however, charge 99 cents per bundle of 10 text messages.
