RESTON, Va., April 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- We First Met (www.wefirstmet.com) announces that it is now a 100% free online dating website, with the same top-notch offerings for its users and a variety of ways to interact by creating social groups, organizing events, posting conversation starters, and sharing date ideas.
"We have listened intently to our member community, and are pleased to be able to provide our online dating service completely free," said founder Enoch Lee. "This will make our website easier to navigate and help our users meet more singles without any limitations. The current trend with free dating sites is to limit users by disabling options unless a fee is paid. We intend to shake up this industry standard as We First Met will offer all of our features to all of our members for free."
Anyone can create a group or event for free. Groups allow users to limit their events to group members. Events can be created with or without a group and can be limited based on age and gender. Users can also show a status indicator to let others know what their intentions are - be it for dating or for friends.
"Groups and events will help our users meet other singles within a group environment while participating in a fun activity," says Lee. "By giving organizers and participants more options to manage their events, we hope to increase their success in forging personal relationships."
We First Met also has a feature allowing users to post conversation starters - offering an easy, no-stress starting point for members to begin communicating with each other. Conversation starters are updated in real time on the conversation page, as well as being displayed on the user's online dating profile.
Messages received from other users can be displayed through filters, allowing members to only view messages from people they want to view messages from. Before a message is opened, a word count of the message gives users an indication on the length of the message.
"We First Met tries to make life easier by filtering out the junk and providing members with information relevant to them," said Lee. "Our features help save time, make better decisions, and find better matches."
Multiple matching algorithms have been implemented on WeFirstMet.com. Users are notified of people who have a high degree of interest in their profile and photos. Users can also conduct searches on what they want and what the person they are looking for wants. This is handled by checking items such as "Wants My Age," "Wants My Height," "Wants my Ethnicity," and more.

About We First Met
We First Met is a new online dating platform developed by founder Enoch Lee. His idea for the website emerged when he realized that almost all dating sites offer the same thing: profiles and pictures. Personal experience led to the realization that his friends had better success when they met people in a group setting while participating in events and activities. He has been working as a professional Web Developer for the last 7 years and has applied that knowledge to Wefirstmet.com.
