As part of Ali’s continuing efforts to get everyone a date, she asked newly-single Andrea Boelkhe, Survivor alum and host of The Daily Brief on Askmen.com, where all the quality singles are hanging out these days. Ok, just the singles. No one’s vouching for the quality. But there are a lot of popular new apps and sites out that help you narrow your search by what you’re looking for.
First up, Hitch.me is an online dating site for people who use LinkedIn. The pro of using it, says Andrea, is “LinkedIn is a very valid site, and usually your resume as accurate because people that are gonna hire you are gonna check that, so you’re getting rid of fake [profiles.]”
The con? “Are they gold diggers? Are you looking basically like ‘I wanna date a doctor!’”
The site does guarantee that, “none of your activities will ever be shared back to your LinkedIn account.”
Next, Coffee Meets Bagel sends you a potential match every day at noon. The match comes from friends of your Facebook friends, so at least you can do some easy background checking. You then get an hour to accept or pass. One downside, according to Andrea, is that, “you only get one match per day.”
