Online Dating Made Even Easier
Don’t know what to say in your personals ad? A new multiple-choice service offers to help you write it.
The service, ProfileWiz, asks users questions such as “Which of these do you find most romantic?” or “What would you like to do but never have time for?” Users can then select one or more photos–for the former question, options include flowers and a couple dancing–that are the closest matches.
Based on the selections, the service writes a profile that best describes the user’s personality, dating preferences and desires. Users can also alter the text. The service is capable of composing many different versions of a user’s profile.
ProfileWiz shows a simple headline and the first paragraph of the ad–users must pay $4.75, via PayPal, to read the whole thing.
“It actually writes your profile description,” a spokesman for ProfileWiz, a unit of London-based Imagini, said. “Your final description can then be used wherever you want, on any dating site.”
