Hello all you fantastic I-Villagers!
I am doing a little research on a pet project of mine, and its something that is in the middling phases of product development and marketing, so I thought I could get some help.
Issue: I am a veteran of online dating of well over 10 years, and am looking to create an online dating sight of my own. The content of the sight would be JUST like any other standard free site, with the usual places for our interests, our pictures, and all of the data that any single person would want to see, but with one unique twist. I am trying to figure out a way to accommodate the users libido, in such a way that the individual can choose to "advertise" their interests right in their profile.
Currently, there are specialist sites for sex, for general dating, and so-called "relationship" sites, but many of these refuse to allow for a place to succinctly allow for their libidinous interests to be categorized. IE: Do you like sex a lot? Are you asexual and want to meet others like you? Do you think once a month is "normal". This is so very important, because as you all know, mis-matched libidos, particularly in a long-term relationship, can have heart-breaking and devastating consequences, including divorce. It is, depending upon whom you quote, anywhere between the #1 and #3 REASON for divorce, and its the #1 reason that couples initially visit a couples therapist.
Question: Do you folks think there are intelligent and tasteful ways that this can be accomplished in a new dating site? I have my own ideas, of course, but I am curious what the general public thinks: particular the public that has experienced the pain and heart-ache of what a mis-matched libido can lead to.
I, and along with many others I know, think that mis-matched libido is a compelling issue of our times. I would feel quite satisfied if I could create lasting relationships through online dating by covering "all the bases" so to speak.
