Company Details


SpeedDate.com is one of a slew of new online, webcam enhanced, speed dating sites. SpeedDate.com allows singles to go on multiple real-time 3-minute online dates from home using a webcam, microphone and instant messaging. The underlying idea is that SpeedDate.com will let you see who you have chemistry with before you actually meet them in person.

There are no lengthy profiles with photos, chains of vague emails or even much of what you might find through a site like eHarmony or Match.com. SpeedDate.com sets you up for 3 minutes with another person via webcam to see if you'll click.

The site takes a fairly serious approach to the space and expects to help users find significant others. It has plans to roll out a premium for pay edition for serious users. MeetYu, a competitor, takes a more playful approach to their product hoping to expand its user base to those who just want a fun and flirtatious video chat.
