If you’ve exhausted all of your dating options in your own country it’s time to expand your horizons and try your luck on another continent. And DatingMashup.com is the site for you! DatingMashup.com is the ‘unique free dating website dedicated to helping you find that special someone for whom you have an international attraction.’
Curious to find that special someone who has that accent or who has a certain cultural heritage you find attractive? DatingMashup.com is the dating website to help you find people from all over the world right in your own neighborhood.
So whether it’s the look, the accent that you love, or you’re just curious about what it’s like to date someone from a certain country in your own locale, DatingMashup.com is the free dating website that can help you find the love of your life. And if you’re interested in dating others who share your own culture, your own ethnicity, you can search for them as well.
It’s really not all that free, of course. It’s free to sign up, like most online dating sites, but there are apparently memberships to be had, whatever that means – that page says “Coming Soon.” Which tells me this site is still a work in progress (it was launched over a year ago in March 2012) and it will eventually cost you something if you’re a member.
I don’t think it’s all that unique either, other than having the ability to identify your own accent (as opposed to the languages you speak) in your profile (it’s a requirement actually) and I’m guessing to also be able to search for the same, which seems to be the whole point of the site. But it’s rather flawed. What exactly is a “European” accent? Or even an “American (English)” one for that matter?
In my opinion it’s great to have a thing for a sexy accent but to have that as a primary requirement when looking for a meaningful relationship is pretty superficial. And I hate to break it to you, but I think I can say with some certainty that most folks in other countries aren’t going to be interested in hearing your “American” accent for very long.
I also have no idea where the name DatingMashup comes from. What exactly are they mashing up? And what’s up with that dude on the home page?
Red flags also went up when I saw the “Other Offerings” available on the website, including, wait for it… baseball roses. If you are a sports nut check out these bouquets shaped like roses but made out of baseballs, footballs and softballs. Go on, I double dog dare you to buy one of these for your mom next year for Mother’s Day, or that English Rose you met on this website with the “British (English)” accent you’re so hot for.
There are also eBooks available for purchase offering dating strategies for men, women marriage/relationships and communication. For men there’s First Date Mastery – Secrets of a Successful First Date. (Dress nice. Don’t pick your nose. You pay. Mystery solved.) For the ladies there’s Calling Men: The Complete Guide to Calling and Emailing The Men You Date. (If you’re dating someone, aren’t you already calling and/or emailing them?) There’s also the Men Made Easy Workbook. How to Capture His Heart Forever. (Men are already easy. Learn to breathe through your nose.) And What is he Really Thinking? Discover Secrets About Men That Most Women Will Never Know. (He’s thinking that he hates your “American” accent.)
I’d love to know how many active members are using this site, and how many of them bought baseball flowers, and/or any of these ridiculous “self-help” books, but I’m guessing that it’s not very many and that you should maybe try your luck elsewhere. Like maybe that British pub down the street for example.
Read true women seeking men online dating stories in FREE LOVE – True Stories of Love and Lust on the Internet by Thomas Kelleher available on Amazon.com and wherever books are sold for as low as $2.99.
Google is commemorating Earth Day, the annual day for everyone to try really really hard to not fuck up the planet any more than it already is, with an animated doodle showing a cycle of all four seasons that’s worth checking out.
Earth Day is an annual holiday (now 43 years old), celebrated on April 22, held worldwide to respect nature and the environment and to demonstrate support for environmental protection.
If you live in the Bay Area and would like to do more than just hugging a few trees and kicking a few tires on a Volt (you can do that here any day) before heading home and turning off your lights for an hour, About.com San Francisco has compiled a list of SF Bay Area events and activities for Earth Day 2013. You can also Google search for more local events closer to you after you’ve been entertained by the doodle.
Personally I’m getting more excited about the upcoming 8th of May holiday. Stay tuned…
