CHICAGO, April 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Online dating has reached critical mass and is trending downwards with a 58% drop in growth from 77% to only 19%. Of nearly 3 million Chicagoans, 47.7% of men and 42.6% of women are single according to The Street Advisor. In response, Social One, an exclusive singles membership service that brings like-minded singles together over exciting adventures, launched today in Chicago. If you sign up any time before July 1st, the first 3 months are free (6 months at 39.50 per month, one easy payment $237), or you can sign up on a month to month plan at $79 per month.
Social One takes the unnatural online "candy shopping dating experience" back to basics and promises never to leave one alone behind the computer awaiting a wink, reply or real conversation.
Social One's original dating technology, which produces events to introduce singles with common interests, is a natural dating methodology based on the human operating system. Social One features:
- Pre-planned activities from hiking to skiing, sky diving to kayaking, even adventures to Thailand and Timbuktu
- Online sign-up
- No upfront payments
- Membership for $79/month
- Background checks conducted for all applicants
"Everyone's mother has told them that looking for love never works," said founder Mary Vallone, "and they were right. Think of every meaningful relationship you've ever had and you'll find that you were probably doing something you loved, something that comes naturally to you – and the relationship formed at a time you didn't expect. Online dating technology has never changed that."
Natural dating techniques are no surprise. According to Dating Expert Adam Gilad, PhD/ABD, "We live in a time of transparency, but people still try to twist themselves into false online masks and blingy club cliches to attract attention. SocialOne lets singles take a big, relaxing breath, and enjoy each other doing the fun, normal and adventurous activities they already love or have always wanted to discover."
