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.”

About Voices

Along with original content and posts from across the Dow Jones network, this section of AllThingsD includes Must-Reads From Other Websites — pieces we’ve read, discussions we’ve followed, stuff we like. Six posts from external sites are included here each weekday, but we only run the headlines. We link to the original sites for the rest. These posts are explicitly labeled, so it’s clear that the content comes from other websites, and for clarity’s sake, all outside posts run against a pink background.

We also solicit original full-length posts and accept some unsolicited submissions.
