Reading dozens of profiles is exhausting. Datebot helps you find matches faster.
Datebot is a free Chrome extension that makes it easier to use online dating sites (currently only supports OKCupid).
Online dating sites are showing promising results on the marriage/relationship front. However, the experience for individual users of these sites is still quite sub-optimal.
On sites such as OKCupid.com, guys spend a significant amount of time reading profiles and drafting messages to women, many of which will never respond (in my experience, response rates range from 10% to 50%).
Unfortunately, because of the time and focus requirements for crafting a high quality message (not to mention the average response rates on these sites), many guys revert to spammy messages that they can copy and paste from profile to profile.
Datebot is here to help solve this problem.
--How does it work? --
It’s quite simple.
For guys, it helps you read a girls profile and lets you know ahead of time how many interests you have in common (we’re not talking about a silly Match % ranking here. I’m talking real, mutual interests, plain and simple). And if you choose to send her a message, Datebot can help you out there too by suggesting talking points based on your shared interests.
Guys and girls using online dating should spend a majority of their time communicating with quality matches, rather than crafting messages to unresponsive people, or slogging through and overwhelming number of spammy messages from creepers. If successful, people using online dating websites will find quality relationships more quickly, contributing to a happier life.
Feel free to check it out on Github if you’re interested in contributing to the project. It’s in super early stages of development (only the guy version is ready right now, and only for OKCupid users), so it’s not quite ready for primetime.
