Biggest dating website new zealand

Buoyed by comments from friends left unsatisfied by their experiences with dating websites, Dylan Bland decided he could create better technology himself.

After 18 months of web development, the 32-year-old internet entrepreneur will launch the country's newest dating website - Twosome - tomorrow, which is, fittingly, Valentine's Day.

(If you’ve tried online dating before without any success, it may just be that you’ve been on the wrong websites – we highly recommend Elite Singles as the top dating site in NZ.) The following are a few of the most popular NZ dating sites: Elite Singles – A high calibre membership and great deals on membership fees, we think this site offers the best bang for buck when it comes to online dating for New Zealanders.

"Not everyone is going to get a great experience on day one - it takes longer than a day or a week." Bland said Twosome's advantages were its usability, price, social media integration and "responsive design", which allowed the website to function properly no matter what kind of device it was being accessed on.

Twosome is 20 per cent owned by Mighty Ape and the dating service will be promoted through the online shopping website's Facebook page and email database.

It's tailored to you NZDating believes people's individuality is special, so rather than forcing the same strict set of rules on everyone - we believe you should be able to make your own choices about what you like seeing (or not seeing).

Our success story started when, sometime in September 2003, Ken responded to an initial inquiry I had posted to him via NZDating.

More compatible matches appear in bigger circles, with different colour auras representing their star sign's associated element.

If users "align" with each other, they can see each other's full list of traits, and are able to message each other.

Online dating in NZ is becoming more and more popular as it becomes socially acceptable to date online.

Internet dating used to have a stigma of being ‘only for weirdos’, but people from all walks of life meet their soulmates online every day.

Bland said a preview version of Twosome had already attracted close to 1000 users and the goal was to have 200,000 to 300,000 members signed up by the end of this year.

"Once you get people in there it's about techniques to keep them coming back," he said.

Badoo – another site popular with the young crowd, although this one doesn’t have as many users as a site like NZD.
