Adding romance to online dating may seem overly ambitious and foolhearted when considering the commonly uploaded half-naked profile photos and risqué messages being sent. It appears we have gone so far forward with depersonalizing dating that romance was left behind a vast distance ago. However, there are traces of romance left…yes, in a current form of online dating. It’s not easy to locate and where you’ll find it is a taboo of sorts and rightly so. The hidden recess of romance in today’s online dating is lost within the personal ads. Not widely known, the subcategory of missed connections holds the last piece of romance in an online dating world drowning with a focus on the physical. Either it is stated outright that the ad is for a one night stand, as with personal ads, or you go to a dating website and state your stats, upload some pics, rattle off some erroneous hobbies and answer a hoard of questions that have been proven to be unlikely in getting you any closer to your true love. Yet, deep undercover, beautiful words and moving sentiments calling out to its intended are posted by someone just like you within missed connections. These modern love letters are mixed in with seedy and outright sexualized personal ads, which makes them nearly impossible to find and even more impossible to trust.
So, how do we extract these heartfelt posts and give them a safe space of their own away from the overwhelming ads for hooking up? That’s what we are creating at Peeksi.com. We are adding romance to online dating via missed connections posts combined with a twist on traditional online dating profiles. We hold the hope close to our hearts that the pool of users swimming in our waters will be believers in love at first sight, creators of romance, actors of chivalry and, most of all, looking for the kind of chemistry on which true, long-lasting intimacy is built. Are you in doubt that others desire to fall in love like you? Set aside your skepticism, because 80% of Americans believe in love at first sight.
You may be wondering why we would want to revolutionize the “wheel.” It would be easy for us to launch a dating tool similar to what everyone is currently using, like a tawdry app or a money-driven website that’s operated in such a way to keep you from meeting someone (because otherwise you wouldn’t be a paying customer any longer). Yet, the current models rarely result in mutual chemistry or love and that’s not the hope and sense of connection we are trying to give back to you and the rest of the dating world. Some may say we are overly idealistic. We don’t care. We want everyone to find love. We wish for nothing less than fireworks for each every user.
Hence, our questions to you are these:
- Would you be part of a concept that adds romance to modern dating?
- Are you merely a watcher or a doer?
- Are you in online dating to troll or make a connection?
- Do you want to have a one night stand or meet someone to cuddle with night after night?
- What is it you want from dating?
We want to know it all, as the more we know the better of a product we can create. Let us into your wishes for the world of dating, so we can work to make them come true! Please provide your answers and commentary below, so we can connect with you and make a change. This is the romance revolution — be a part of it! We need you!
