View N Me is a new online dating site that provides an alternative to the sometimes awkward and oftentimes generic online dating profiles. While View N Me allows users to have written profiles, the main selling point is the ability for their users to upload video profiles. This allows users to connect on a different level than traditional dating profiles.
Another of View N Me’s selling points is their online one-on-one dates which take place via webcam from the comfort of your home. This eliminates the sometimes wasted time, energy, and money of meeting in person. This way, you can make sure you have a connection with your potential partner before you head out. It will also help you make sure that the person you’re talking to actually resembles their profile picture, which is a concern in today’s online dating landscape. View N Me uses your webcam for online speed dating sessions in which you can meet about 10-15 new people for three minutes at a time.
I asked Eric Friedman and Lindsey Lachman, the brains behind View N Me, why someone should choose their site over any of the other popular dating sites. Here’s what they said:
Traditional dating sites are a great way to bring people together, however, the pictures and written profiles on these sites don’t always portray people accurately. View N Me solves this problem by connecting people immediately via webcam. People no longer have to worry about cumbersome sign up processes or spending time emailing back and forth only to finally meet in person and discover that there is no connection. With the use of webcam people are able to connect right away to determine for themselves whether they are compatible with another person.
View N Me is free to join. Free members can create profiles, browse members, and send messages. In order to view messages or responses, request dates, join speed dating sessions, or take part in one-on-one video chats, you’ll need to sign up for a Basic or Premium membership. View N Me also offers Basic memberships for $20, $45, and $80 for 1, 3, and 6 months respectively and Premium memberships for $40, $100, $180 for 1, 3, and 6 months respectively. Because View N Me just launched, they are giving away a free lifetime membership to the first 500 members; if you’re interested, there’s no harm in trying. So go on, give it a shot if you’re having a hard time finding someone at the bars or through friends. I know plenty of friends who have had success with online dating websites.
