After reading the article “Alternative lifestyles: can sex dolls replace real women?” I have had to stop a moment certain things to rethink
Match has acquired Ok Cupid….there goes another free site. Pfffttt.
OkCupid isn’t changing. It’s just been acquired.
Evan, if you think that Match.com has spent significant $$$ in order to acquire OKCupid for the purposes of continuing to provide FREE online dating, I want what some of what you are smoking!
What is more likely: A business spending $$$ for the purposes of (i) acquiring a competitor in order to give free to people that which you are selling; or (ii) reducing and/or eliminating a significant competitor to the service (mediocre) which you are providing in order to maintain or increase price level. Hmmm. Think. Think.
Or, they can see a huge database of single people as an ideal feeder to paid dating sites, which is exactly the model that OkCupid and PlentyofFish have pioneered: people clicking on ads to paid sites from their free site.
Think, Hadley, think!
RE: Evan @5
Evan, as your site is about dating and not business, I will limit my discussion of my point. In summar,y my feeling is that the better OKCupid is/becomes relative to Match.com the more OKCupid will canabilize Match.com paying customers>Thus a zero sum game for the new Match.com/OKCupid org. But if OKCupid customers have one less free site to go to, the more they will tend to go to Match.com & start paying.
That’s my bet anyway. We shall see. I promise to admit I called it wrong if within 2 yrs OKCupid is still around /still free/still OK. Put it in your tickle file.
$4000? Why did you put this link up ? lol. I don’t think we understand male sexuality as well as we think we do. Saying men like sex, doesn’t quite seem to be enough, when you are spending that much money on a piece of plastic!!
Interesting set of dating articles. I’ll check these out! Thanks for putting them together!
