Graduate dating site
This new invite-only online dating site allows only college graduates to join and the men are held to an even higher standard — all must be verified graduates of U. News & World Report's top 50 universities, top 15 liberal arts schools or top international schools.Many of the men already on the site studied law, medicine or business."If you're looking for more than just a quick lay, and you're not loud, it's hard to find a partner," said the University of Pennsylvania graduate.Before launching, Sparkology held focus groups to ask young professionals what's wrong with the current online dating sphere and also asked what users want from a dating site.
With a free membership you get full access to the site, including searching, testimonials, favorites, and communication with other members.
"I'm running Sparkology with a high standard of ethics.
It might hurt our growth in the early days, but maintaining a brand of trust will be worth it." Sparkology launched in October 2011 aiming to bring courtship to online dating.
The business model might seem discriminatory, but Alex Furmansky, the founder of the site, stands behind his site that he says is successfully making matches.
He was inspired to start the website back in college, when he noticed the loudest most obnoxious guy at the bar always attracted the most attention and got all of the girls.
