LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/06/13 -- Although the practice of meeting someone online is no longer taboo, the process can often be overwhelming, time-consuming, and disappointing without someone to help navigate it. Enter Wingdate.com -- an innovative online dating site that introduces an old fashioned twist to online dating by allowing women to become virtual "Wing Girls" for their friends who are looking for love. A "Wing Girl" can create a profile for her friend in minutes by registering directly on the Wingdate.com site or linking her Wingdate account to Facebook.
"One of the biggest drawbacks to online dating is that people often post misleading profiles or are not truthful about what they want, and that can make the experience disappointing and a waste of time," says CEO and Co-founder of Wingdate, Dara Barker. Barker believes that the best way to meet other singles is by introductions through friends who know them. Barker realized that if she could combine the traditional way of meeting people through friends, with the vast pool of online singles looking for love, people could have the best of all worlds. "Wingdate is about getting friends out on good, fun dates with interesting people."
As a "Wing Girl," you can recommend potential suitors to your friend and ensure that she only meets the most eligible bachelors. Men that create a profile on Wingdate can find their potential "Dream Girl" by impressing her "Wing Girl" and gaining an advocate in the process.
Barker founded Wingdate with business partner and fellow Ivy Leaguer, Warren Chao, a media and technology entrepreneur and investor who helped start My Damn Channel, a leading online studio and distribution company. Chao brings substantial experience in venture capital, corporate and intellectual property law, and launching web companies. "Dara's novel approach to online dating is brilliant because it combines traditional dating opportunities with Facebook's massive connective power," says Chao.
In addition to the online dating focus of the website, Wingdate hosts a blog where people can seek tried-and-true dating advice from "Dr. Wingdate" and special guest bloggers, including relationship and dating experts. Wingdate also hosts "Morning After Mondays," a series of funny user video posts about online dating.
