LOS ANGELES, April 8, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Online dating has reached critical mass and is trending downwards with a 58% drop in growth from 77% to only 19%. 41% of Southern California's 22 million denizens are unmarried. In response, Social One (www.SocialOne.com) launches its first offices in Los Angeles and Costa Mesa. The original dating technology, which produces events to introduce singles in person with common interests, is a natural dating methodology based on the human operating system. Social One is an exclusive singles membership service that offers pre-planned experiences from hiking to skiing, sky diving to kayaking, even adventures to Thailand and Timbuktu. For anyone who signs up before July 1st, the first 3 months are free (6 months at $29.50 per month in one payment of $237), or you can sign up for a month-to-month plan at $79.00 per month.
With over 360 marriages under their belt since being established in Chicago in 1996, 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.
"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."
"Though online dating has its advantages, nothing trumps shared experiences in person," says Social One dating expert Adam Gilad, PhD/AbD and author of "The Fearless Lover" and "The Ageless Attraction." "There are specific challenges to dating in a large city like LA. I've found that it's best to carve out a smaller, more local niche of friends based on shared interests and to cultivate that group with intimate events. It takes the pressure off and makes meeting others fun and natural."
Since the dawn of time, cavemen to PhDs have known that relationships naturally sprout from extended exposure between people in common situations. Social One (www.SocialOne.com) is the original dating technology based on the human operating system and offers an intriguing calendar of events that range from skiing to wine tasting, river rafting to theatre going, for singles. Offering so much more than just an internet connection, Social One provides real ingredients for real people and makes dating simple, like it should be. Social One is based in Chicago, Illinois with offices in Indianapolis, Indiana, Los Angeles and Costa Mesa, California.
