IDEA webinar on dating in a time of the pandemic

Internet Dating Excellence Association, or IDEA, conducted their regular webinar with Mark Brooks (President,  Geoff Cook (CEO of the Meet Group), and Safe Dating Advisory Board: Epidemiologists, Dr. Melissa Sharp and Dr. Tali Elfassy, infectious disease expert, Dr. Anu Hazra.

The main topic of the webinar was to discuss the risks of online dating during Coronavirus.

The key takeaways were:

  • The in-person first dates can be replaced with video dates to avoid potential exposure and get to know each other better before committing into relationships further;
  • Dating site owners can and should promote the use of individual protection such as masks, gloves, social distancing, and others, to reduce exposure risks;
  • Advise users not to trust test results posted on the Internet. These results may be unreliable, outdated or fake;
  • People always keep on interacting with each other, as well as dating. And “it is important to adhere to local governmental guidance and supplied information”;


Pro tip: Following the recommendations of people who’ve been working in the dating industry for quite a while now is always better than making mistakes yourself. From this webinar, you can see that video dating is still trending and can be used to launch a profitable dating business.

Survey by extramarital dating app finds reasons why people commit infidelity

Indian extramarital dating app Gleeden survey showed that around 75% of its users are willing to meet their love interests if provided an opportunity.

Further research shows that 45% believe that shared intimacy won’t affect their current relationship. While 47% thinks that they cannot share the same level of emotions with two different people.

37% of people commit infidelity because they want to try out something new or spice up their existing relationship. 36% of people commit infidelity because they are in love with someone else.

Pro tip: Sex sells and it’s an undeniable truth. You can either use it and create your own affair dating site or, in opposition, create a site where you teach or help people how to prevent cheating or fix the relationship after it already happened.

Dating app Grindr launches art section

Grindr started testing its new chatroom feature a few months ago.

These chatrooms allow users to connect with unknown people to discuss their favorite topics like LGBTQ activism, video games, and the latest episodes of RuPaul’s Drag Race.

App users are also able to send images in the chats, sharing and talking about their artwork or photographs.

One anonymous user told The Art Newspaper: “I love the idea of art-sharing among my fellow gays. I’ve had some genuinely lovely conversations with people about it. We’ve shared ideas, appreciated each other’s work, given notes where necessary.”

Pro tip: People always crave for conversations and people contact. And this LGBTQ+ community has limited ways to communicate with similar people. You can help them communicate better and use it as the main feature of your business.
