Zoosk’s Burrit-OH! Dating App to Stick Around

Burrito GifWhat started off as an April Fool’s joke by our friends at Zoosk, has turned into a niche dating site that just might stick around.

When Zoosk launched a dating site just for burrito lovers called Burrit-OH! temporarily as an April Fool’s prank, it was clever, but for some burrito lovers, they want to see the site stick around for a while.

Niche online dating sites are all the rage. You can meet someone with the same political interests, find pet lovers, and also join dating sites based on your food preferences.

On the Zoosk blog, Robin Keller, Senior Engineer said, “It calculates what percentage of burrito match you are based on how you fill out the 32 items in your burrito order.”

With Burrit-Oh, their tag line is “Meat your soulmate.” They’ll match you with other singles based upon your burrito orders. If you’re an experienced enough burrito eater to know that guacamole is extra, these site is for you.

Zoosk has decided to keep the site up, for at least a few more weeks. This means that you’ve got more time to search for your burrito soulmate and meet up for a romantic dinner date at your closest Chipotle or other Mexican dining location.

Here’s how Burrit-OH! works

  1. Log on to Burrit-OH!’s website and fill out the basic profile information, with your name, age, location, and whether you’re seeking out a male or female burrito lover.
  2. Then move on to the important information; it’s time to build your burrito!
  3. You’re then shown potential matches in your area and a percentage of how compatible they are with you based on their burrito order.

Even though you can’t base a relationship solely on the similarities in your burrito order, Glamour points out that you’ll at least end up talking to or meeting someone with a sense of humor, which is always on the top

P.S. Don’t forget the spicy salsa.

Wishing you much love and joy in cyberspace, or wherever you may roam. xo

New Online Dating Site Hitch.me Mixes Business With Pleasure

Do you believe that LinkedIn profiles are more accurate than most online dating profiles? If so, you’re not alone. On Friday the 13th, Hitch.me was officially launched using LinkedIn profiles as the basis for their site’s algorithms.

I had the opportunity to interview Hitch.me founder Navid Nadir, who is happily married with two children. ?Nadir has a degree in computer engineering from Queens University in Kingston, Canada and although he isn’t interested in finding love online, both he and his wife have single friends who were frustrated with the process.

Nadir believes that over 50% of online dating profiles are fabricated. Nadir said,???If you want to date someone, why lie?? That’s a question that many single daters struggle with as they hope there’s truth-in-advertising when viewing online dating profiles.

Nadir added, “It’s not just another niche site. It?s a niche site that is in demand. This is something we have been waiting for a long time. You can actually search for a profile based upon a skill-set, find someone based on specific industries, and search within groups that you are a member of on LinkedIn.”

The site is simple to use and there are no monthly fees.

Hitch.me members purchase credits in a pay-as-you-go format. Their 3 levels are:

  • Beginner: $10 for 500 credits
  • So Much for So Less: $25 for 2000 credits
  • Guaranteed Satisfaction: $50 for 4000 credits

So how does the credit system work?

For 20 credits, you get just a ?smile.? It?s their way of flirting.

For 50 credits, you get a ?pitch,? the opportunity to send a 200 word email to the object-of-your-affection.

For 100 credits, Private Presentation: 100 credits. Can add youtube videos and images, 500 words and can add 3 images and one youtube video.

Does the site mix business with pleasure? Only if you want it to. You can select from finding a casual date, soulmate, friend, or a business partner.

For a limited time period, they are offering 200 free credits as they build their membership base. Click here to get started on Hitch.me

Do you believe LinkedIn profiles are more accurate than online dating profiles? Your comments are always welcome.
